Hit the ground running by using the best that the tech world has to offer. If you’re organised early on, you’re much more likely to create a clear study plan and actually stick to it!
To save you some time, below we’ve put together a list of what we consider to be the top 10 studying apps to help keep you in tip-top study shape!
Flashcards are a great revision aid and this app allows you to take them with you wherever you go!
You can choose to create your own flashcards or search StudyBlue’s library of 500 million flashcards created by other users. You can easily customise the materials with images and audio making it super simple to learn in a way that works for you.
If you’re more of a social learner, this is the app for you as it allows you to connect and collaborate with your friends, classmates, or even students on the other side of the world!
You can join in with countless Learning Groups on different study topics, share and post resources, and get feedback and advice from other people studying the same subject.
Check it out on iOS or Android .
Find it hard to keep track of your upcoming exams? This app provides a handy visual reminder of all your important upcoming dates. You’ll keep yourself focused as you can easily check how much time you’ve got to cram before you sit each exam.
We love the fact that you can colour code all your exams and tests and use icons as a quick visual reference for each subject. You can also add notes to remind yourself of anything you need to bring on the day.
Designed for high school and uni students, this calendar app lets you build your own timetable to easily keep track of your classes, assignments and exams.
It lets you assign tasks to specific classes and comes with reminders so you don’t forget a thing! Plus, it comes with day and week rotation timetables, so you can easily pop in those classes or assessments that you only have every other week.

Evernote is way more than just a place to store notes. It’s the ultimate organisation app that lets you add to-do lists, images, webpages, memos and more!
Whatever way you like to keep yourself organised, we’re 99.9% sure there’s a function for it on this app. You can type up notes, handwrite notes and photograph them, store things as word docs or PDFs - it really is the only organiser you’ll ever need!
Mind mapping is a great study method as it helps organise your thoughts, spark your memory and come up with new ideas.
With SimpleMind you can create your own mind maps, or you can opt for one of the auto layouts and fill it in. You can work to any scale you like as it boasts a virtually unlimited page size and number of elements.
Getting too stressed? Taking time to relax is just as important as putting in the hours! Meditation can be a great way to unwind as it relaxes and encourages focus which will also help you when you get back to your studies.
Headspace has loads of different courses that are designed to help you with different aspects of your life. There’s a Sleep course which unsurprisingly helps with sleep and a Productivity courses which (you’ve guessed it) helps with productivity.
Do you sit down to study only to get instantly distracted by calls, texts, emails or social media alerts? Then you need Offtime in your life!
It allows you to block incoming calls, texts and notifications for set periods of time and can also stop you accessing apps during this time so no more endless scrolling through your Insta feed instead of getting down to work!
It even tracks your usage of your phone and apps so you can see just how long you spend procrastinating throughout the day!
Get it on Android .
Always sleeping in for class or right through your free study morning? You need the ultimate alarm clock. Enter Alarmy. It features super loud ringtones and ‘missions’ to complete before the alarm shuts off making it impossible to ignore or snooze.
Choose from photo missions where you take a photo of a pre-set object, maths missions where you solve maths problems, barcode missions where you have to scan a pre-set barcode and shake missions where you must shake your phone a set number of times to stop the alarm.
You’ll never oversleep again!
Want to focus better? Listening to music can help clear your mind and get things done. With Study Music, you can choose different music for different tasks like studying, reading and being creative.
Plus, you can add in nature sounds or alpha waves to your chosen music which has been said to make it easier to relax and improve your focus - think of it like being able to bring a piece of the great outdoors with you to the library!

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
