In our latest feature geared toward the college-set, we outlined a few essential tools students can use on their smartphone to help improve productivity and scholastic performance – proving a ban on phones in class may not be the best protocol in lecture halls this coming semester. Now we’re taking a look at even more apps that can help not just undergrads, but students of any age and even professionals hoping to keep sharp.
GradeProof for Grammar and Spelling
While peer editing is a surefire way to gain insight and perspective into your assignments before handing them in for a grade, it’s not a foolproof process for identifying flaws in writing that other students might not pick up on. GradeProof is a personal editor app that allows students to improve their writing one sentence at a time. It goes above and beyond in identifying complex grammar issues that most word processors often miss while assuring the user adheres to specific writing styles when necessary, and even checks for originality to prevent any accidental plagiarism.
While GradeProof is free to download, it’s more than worth it to splurge on a $10-a-month subscription to guarantee users have a trusty editor in their back pocket.
Photomath for Breaking Down Tough Problems
While GradeProof can help make any student’s writing better, helping out with Math is another playing field entirely. Originally designed for high school students, Photomath is an aid for anyone trying to tackle a query that has them stumped. Users can take a photo or type in a math problem, and the app finds the answer alongside the user by breaking down the most logical steps to the correct solution. The user, in turn, will adapt their problem-solving skills alongside the app to take these tactics with them to the classroom – a big help for those college students who don’t major in math but need to pass the 101 course to fulfill their credit requirements.
While these apps can act as study buddies that live in students’ back pockets, tools like LINK can take a student’s entire digital world and place it in the palm of their hand, cutting down on the clutter within their backpacks that they have to lug between lectures.
