Students at universities have to work on many academic projects during the semester. While working on multiple subjects, things may go haywire. Thankfully, Apple has added a lot of extraordinary features to its third-generation iPad Pro. And to enhance the Apple tablet capabilities, there are some iPhone and iPad apps for college students. We have compiled a list of iPhone and iPad apps for college students to use in their studies. Since students are continuously hooked to smartphones and tablets, the apps come in handy to finish their college projects on the dot. We have selected a few essential apps after trying dozens of apps from the App Store.
1. Google Drive
Now, I know iPads come with limited storage options, and the ones with more storage are quite expensive. So, an alternative to that is to have a cloud drive to store all your notes and class presentations.
I know iCloud is already there preinstalled on all our Apple devices, but it offers only 5 GB free storage while google offers 15 GB. Which is considerably more. Also if you have 2 Gmail IDs then you have an added benefit of 15 GB extra storage. So you can make the most out of this free app

Juggling between multiple courses and corresponding assignments all the while keeping a sane mind is very important. Stress is the biggest productivity killer and would eventually affect your grades.
Headspace is one of the best apps out there that helps in calming your nerves down and keeps you stress-free.

4. Adobe Scan: Document Scanner
Having a scanner app is a must these days, and if you are a student, then it is of utmost necessity as you would need to scan your paper handouts. Handouts can sometimes be too much to handle, and we might even forget to carry them.

7. Forest – Stay focused
Have you ever started mindlessly scrolling through your phone while you were studying? If yes, which I feel most people would answer, then Forest is the best app for you. This app motivates you not to use your phone for a specific period of time.
Just set the timer and keep your mobile aside. If you are successful, then the app will grow a tree on your virtual forest, but if you exit the app before the timer ends, then your tree won’t grow. It is a very interesting way to stay away from your phone.
I have been an environment enthusiast since forever, and I love to switch to digital format wherever possible. So I switched to Notability for trial purposes, and I am not ever going back to normal pen and paper now.
Notability offers a variety of tools to make your note-taking experience worth every penny it charges. Shifting to digital note-taking comes with a ton of advantages like you don’t have to carry multiple notebooks, all your notes are synced with the cloud, so you don’t have to worry about losing them and many more.
Students have to write “n” number of papers during their university papers. And writing those in wrong grammar or with spelling mistakes will definitely hamper your grades. Grammarly is the perfect app for correct spelling and grammatical errors.
It is basically a keyboard for the iPhones and iPads that can correct your grammatical mistakes and spell-checks your write-up. Not only does it correct the grammar and spell checks your text but it also gives you suggestions on how the sentence can be in a better manner or if a better synonym can be used for a specific word.

10. Class Time Table
Have you ever forgotten to finish an assignment by its due date? Or have you ever skipped a class because you lost track of time? I know to be in the University we all have to remember a lot of stuff and, Due Dates and Time Tables should not burden our thoughts.
This app keeps track of all your Assignments, due dates and class timings, you can also feed in the room number or class numbers. So, this app reduces a considerable burden of yours.
Price: Free (Upgrade to Pro $0.99)
I have always emphasized and said that all these apps might help you out to achieve your goals but ultimately will always come down to you. You have to work hard and not rely on 100% on these apps. They are just there to help you not do your work for you.
