We use mobile applications to do almost everything on a daily basis, from exercising, diet, and getting a discount voucher, to ordering food or booking a taxi. As a student, you can use an app to learn a new language, revise your notes, create flashcards for your lecture, organize your tasks, or even search for the meaning of a phrase or a word.

Apps are useful for students and amongst the many student apps available online the most useful student apps are as follows:

1. Evernote

You can use Evernote to write down lecture notes on the spot and even take pictures and use them within your notes. You can also use the app to add recordings, sync notes between two devices, add a checklist to your notes, and even add video links to review videos that you think are relevant to the subject. It is a very useful student application that you could get through the App Store and Google Play.
