Must-Have Productive Apps for Students

apps for students

It’s that time of the year again, when your productivity is shifting into low gear, as stress level goes up. While we can’t be there to give you a much needed massage, we do have some amazing apps to share! Don’t worry, you can thank us later.

Time management really is the #1 key to success in school in life. It’s important to schedule in time for work and play so that you don’t overwork yourself. I mean, when else are you going to watch the newest episode of #RHONJ? Google Calendar is a great app to use when it comes to organizing. It lets you have multiple, color-coded calendars and can send yourself e-mail reminders.  If you’re a social butterfly and get e-vites to more events than you can remember, it can also link the events to your calendar!


This one’s a must have for all SA (Shopaholics Anonymous) members. While we can’t all live a #fabuluxe lifestyle, it doesn’t mean that we can’t have a fabuluxe necklace. But since budget living is the reality we have to face, it’s important to make sure there’s enough money to splurge on another accessory. Mint is the handy app to keep on your phone or to use online. It shows you how much money is left in your accounts, and automatically categorizes your spendings, so you see just how much money you’re pouring into clothes. It can even send you weekly or monthly financial statements that lets you know when you’re overspending your budget. The great thing is that even if your phone gets stolen (*knocks on wood), they won’t be able to transfer money out of your accounts!


While we admire the patience, the time and the money saved by Extreme Couponers, some of us just don’t have the time to go through pages and pages of flyers. Plus, we live in the digital age now – hard copies of coupons are so medieval. Checkout 51 is an app that mixes together our love of getting discounts with technology. Each week, they’ll send you an e-mail with the list of coupons available. After you buy the items, simply take a picture of the receipt and upload it onto the app or to the website. Once you reach savings of 20 bucks, they’ll mail you a cheque! No more snipping and clipping required!


Since it seems like we’re on a money-saving kick, might as well throw another one into the mix! If you’ve never heard of or never used eBates before, then gurrrl, you’re missing out! eBates is great app for those of us that are part of SA who tends to make purchases online between the hours of procrastination to I-really-should-do-work-right-now-but-that-sweater-just-looks-so-comfy. eBates has deals with lots of large retailers, such as Bloomingdale’s, Sephora and ASOS, just to name a few. Not only does it show you what deals are happening right now with the retailers, it also gives you cash back! Yup, your eyes are not deceiving you. Thanks to eBates, you’ll be getting money back for making your purchases.


Freshmen 15 doesn’t only happen when you’re a freshmen, and while these tips are great to fight against it, exercising is one of the most effective ways to keep it off. Cassey Ho, better known as Blogilates on Youtube created this app based-off of her popular channel. It has her effective exercise videos linked to the app, as well as some healthy yet delicious recipes. Best of all, she has your day-to-day workout routine planned for you, which you can easily do with no gym equipment. Goodbye Freshmen 15!
