The student-phase in everyone’s life is a crucial phase that almost built the character, habits of an individual. It is that phase of life where we all learn the importance of time.

Now, the time has been changed, the technology is improved to the next level. Nowadays, android mobiles are becoming substitutes for books. So, many students are spending their important time on social media, or playing the games available on mobile phones.

Undoubtedly, this is an alarming situation for the students, and their future, as they are spending the time on mobiles.


Although the benefits of this pocket-sized tool also called mobile phones are unavoidable.

They provide us the knowledge of the entire universe on a small screen. It is magical, that we can age answer to every possible question just in seconds.

Android applications can be a boon for students if they use them carefully. The play store section is full of educational application, and the application that makes students more creative and focused.

Being a student, it is very common that we get distracted by the things happening around us. Sometimes peer pressure also makes us less-confident that leads a student to divert his or her mind.

This article contains insight into the available application for students.

1. Homework Planner Apps

The thing most students fear is homework. Spilling the beans, I was been a student who always used to get punished for not completing the homework on time. It was the toughest task for me at that time.

I searched for applications, that can remind me to complete the homework. I am pretty much sure; you are going to love this application. The application ‘myHomework Student Planner’ works like an alarm.

2. Online Classrooms Apps

Pneumonia like an infection that is named COVID-19 created havoc throughout the world. It made schools and universities shut.

Virtual classrooms are the only possible option for the teachers and students to protect against the transmission of the disease.

Google-meet, zoom, and Easyclass are some of them. These are easy to use. While using a virtual classroom, it feels like we are sitting in a physical classroom.

3. Focus and Concentration Apps

Have you ever been in a situation, that you have a lot to study but finally end the day just by scrolling on social media?

If yes, you need to work on your focus. For a student, focus and consistency are very important to understand the concept and earn good grades.

I would recommend ‘Forest: Stay focused’. This is an android application with a very creative idea. It has won so many accolades as an application for its benefits to the users.

‘Motion’ is an alternative application for ‘Forest’, that tracks the use of social media and sends you a notification if you are spending more time on ‘not-productive’ activities.

4. Time Management Apps

Time and health are the most precious things in this world. If you are not respecting these, you are losing something, you won’t get back. The value of time in a student’s life cannot be compared with anything else.

For every student, it is a must that he is utilizing his time respectful manner.

During the examination, when you have to cover the entire syllabus of a year, many books you have to revise, you cannot do these without managing your time.

‘Google calendar’ is a simple, yet practical application that is available on Android systems. You can organize your classes, tasks, events, and other important activities here.

An alternative for ‘Google calendar’ is ‘Todoist’. It enables you to list your tasks and set reminders for the tasks based on priority. You will feel well-organized by using this application.

Brain Storming Apps

To keep for mind active and sharpen your memory, it is suggested to solve the problems.

Hundreds of applications are available with millions of active users, helping them to keep brain cells active. ‘Brain Test’, ‘Brain out’, and ‘ThinQbator’ are some of them.

Take Away Message

Isn't it a good idea to use Android apps for your benefit?

It is a win-win situation for students if they use some application to enhance their skills. It is suggested to make sure to use these applications only as a tool.

Let me know what you think of Android apps that help you as a student or in the daily life, and of course, leave your opinions in the comments section.
