A short, but concise, list of the apps that make learning and connecting easier.
1. Keepnotes|Evernote: These applications are wonderful for note-taking. Be it with a pen or by typing, you can be rest assured that your notes would never go missing. To access this cloud storage of notes, you would have to create an account- and it takes less than 3 minutes. You can also save articles to read later and create lists.

3. Piggyvest|Cowrywise: These are the best apps when it comes to saving. Earn juicy interests with several plans; from locked savings; to 8% and 6% target interest plans; to auto-savings daily. Be it investing, or simply storing away money for a specific period, it is necessary to have some form of financial nest in place- especially as a student. It is very important to save money in order not to be stranded.

4. Curio|Pocket: Ever been redirected to an article but you’re in too much of a hurry to read it? Or you are walking and you get dizzy because you were trying to read at the same time? Curio and Pocket are excellent solutions to this! Pocket is an app that allows you to save articles for further reading. The articles are saved in an neat format and there is an option to highlight portions of the texts and change the font as well as text size. Asides from the article-saving feature, you can also opt to listen to the article while going about your daily tasks. Curio on the other hand is a platform solely for listening to articles. You can create playlists or browse through the “follow-come” playlists and listen away.

5. Researcher|Academia: Academia and Researcher are superb applications for finding peer-reviewed papers and journals related to your field. Researcher especially is a gem because you could indicate your interests and follow journals to have a mouth-watering timeline. Researcher provides the abstract of the paper and a link indicating where the full paper can be found. Academia on the other hand has a less appealing homepage but has a repertoire of easy-to-access articles, including the ones not included in journals.
