Your phone holds the key to an even more productive study session with tons of apps that will help with your focus, organization, memorization and time management. Just make sure to download some of these before classes start this fall, that way you’ll be comfortable navigating each app when you really need it instead of wasting precious study time.


More than 50 million students have signed up to study for free with Quizlet, a study app whose features include memory tests, flashcards you can create and share with friends and other students, races against the clock games and general study assistance to help you get exam ready.
