8 Apps Every Student Should Have On Their Phone

Everyone needs a little help surviving.

8 Apps Every Student Should Have On Their Phone
This is a list of eight apps that every student should have on their phone. I personally have all of these apps and use them each at least twice a week, many more than that. This lists includes Groupon, Slack, GroupMe, UNiDAYS, Chegg, Sweatcoin, Flora, and iStudiez Pro.

1. Groupon

Groupon is an app that has great deals for almost anything that you can think of. It has coupons for goods, things to do, beauty and spas, restaurants, travel, health and fitness, and other things.

2. Slack

Slack is a great platform for group projects. Slack allows one to make different threads in one group. This would be helpful if a group project has a bunch of different parts to it and different people working on each part. Each part of a project could message on their thread and the people in that group that don't have that thread saved will not be bothered with the notifications from that thread, but they would be able to see what is going on in that thread through searching for the thread.

3. Groupme

GroupMe is an app where people can make groups of people chat with that does not require everyone to have each other's numbers. One can also direct message someone on GroupMe without having their number. GroupMe is a great way to communicate with project groups or study groups in college.


UNiDAYS gives college students discounts at a lot of places. UNiDAYS is very easy to use and they will even send you emails about new discounts that are available.

5. Chegg

Chegg is an app where college students can buy or rent their textbooks for cheap. Chegg is very easy to use and navigate. Chegg also sends the textbooks in a reasonable amount of time.

6. Sweatcoin

Sweatcoin is a good way for students or anyone to earn a little "money" to spend on products within the app. Sweatcoin tracks your steps and for every so many steps it gives you "money" that can be used within the app to get discounts on things or to buy things. The only bad thing about sweatcoin is that it needs to be open in the background to track your steps and it cannot currently count inside steps.

7. Flora

Flora is a nice study tip for any teenager or student that wants a fun way to stay off their phone and get their work done. One just picks the amount of time that they want to set their phone down for and over that amount of time a little tree will grow. If one picks up their phone and tries to do something on it before the time is up on the countdown, then the tree dies.

8. iStudiez Pro

iStudiez Pro is my favorite app that I have downloaded. I use it for my calendar, homework, professor information, semester, holidays, and clubs that I am involved with. iStudiez Pro links up with my phone calendar, so all of my stuff is in one place. In iStudiez Pro one can have multiple classes saved and put homework down under those classes. One can also set the date that the homework is due, the priority of the assignment, and when they want a reminder about the assignment. With assignments one can also add a partner to the assignment. One can also sort their assignments by the due date, the course, or the priority. One an assignment is completed one clicks the exclamation mark and it becomes a check mark and is moved into the completed assignments tab. iStudiez Pro costs money, but there is a version that does not, but you cannot input as many classes and instructors into that one.

All of these apps have helped me greatly in my college career this far and I highly suggest them to all of you.
