Do you remember last time when you spent a day without using your mobile phone? Nowadays, a small device encompasses everything from entertainment and education to shopping and banking. People become more dependent on the convenience that mobile phones provide. Students also benefit from using smartphones in their education and personal life.

It is stated that female college students spend 10 hours per day on their mobile phones. The amount of time is slightly less for males, but still significant. Apart from emailing and messaging, Instagramming and surfing Facebook, students often use their devices to improve their academic performance. There are many free applications available in app stores that can boost your academic performance. In this article, we are going to discuss the top 3 apps that serve students well.

Dragon Dictation

Dragon Dictation is not a new development but it works like magic for students. The app was developed by Nuance Communications and works for free. It allows converting everything that is said into digital files that you can save, edit and share with friends. Finally, there is no need to make notes or type trying to cover all themes mentioned by a professor during the lecture. You can turn the app on, and it will catch every single word your professor said and convert it into a typed text. Also, this app helps to dictate messages since qwerty keyboard still takes much time to type.

Google Docs

Google Docs is a wonderful application offered by Google developers’ team. It helps in creating and editing files, including texts, tables, and other types. The app works for free. You can share a link with your friends, allowing them to access the file and make edits. With such a function, shared projects are no longer that difficult to organize. Working in combination with Google Drive, a universal tool that allows you to store your files in the cloud, Google Docs indeed helps students to study and work in teams.

Wrapping Up

Many students admit that without applications and technologies their academic results would be worse. However, this dependency works both ways. Applications indeed help students save time and learn, but they also make educators harsher when checking assignments. Every day Android, Apple and Windows app stores are supplied with new applications designed to ease the academic burden. Many of them do not get popular, but some indeed help millions of students. With all the pros and cons of smartphones and applications, education would not evolve if it was not for technologies. We need to accept this fact and move forward, using the apps for the better.
