The 5 Best Study Aid Apps for Students | Edudemic

I am always on my children to get up and move around while they are studying.I have also been known to use an app that reminds me to take a break by shutting down my computer for five minutes.

Here are 5 apps your students might find helpful. The only two apps ]that you get on the app store are Sworkit: There is a lite version, but the Pro version is only $2.29. It provides you wilt a variety of work out from yoga, to cardio when you  don’t have time to go to the gym. And Vocabology: Also $2.29. Helps build vocabulary (it actually looks like a lot of fun…)

Study Buddy and StudyRoom are web-based, but work on the iPad. The former is a free tutoring service fro math and science. The latter is a place where study groups can get organized.

The only one that doesn’t work on the iPad is the open source, SelfControl, which you can program to block certain sites or mail serves for a certain period of time while you try to concentrate!

Check out the article though- it gives a way better summary than I just did.

It’s not easy for students to stay on task these days. From Facebook to Instagram & Twitter to instant messaging to pop up, there are so many distractions.
