There are a ton of apps out there vying for students’ attention and it can be tough to sort through them all. This list includes five apps that are particularly useful for students, based on their ability to help with productivity, organisation, and studying.

The app’s most significant selling point is its versatility. Apart from taking notes, you can manage projects, create a calendar, write a daily journal, plan travel itineraries, and much more. You can use it to organize not only your uni work but pretty much everything else in your life.
