5 Apps You Should Download Before Midterms

Cramming for your upcoming exams? Midterms are definitely a stressful – and often overwhelming – time in the semester. Luckily, we knew we’d be able to dig up some apps to make your exam prep a bit easier. After all, there’s an app for almost anything these days. Check out what we found below.

1. Quizlet

Whatever you’re studying, Quizlet can help. This unique study tool allows you to find or create your own set of flashcards that you can review alone or with another classmate. It’s not just for studying vocabulary and definitions, though. The app also allows you to create diagrams, which is perfect for the visual learner.

2. Evernote

Evernote is a convenient digital space where you can store all of your notes. So, what if you’ve already handwritten your notes in a notebook? Not a problem. You can actually scan them into the app and bring them on-the-go wherever you’re studying (along with audio, links, attachments, and more). We’re also huge fans of the “search your own handwriting” feature. It’s basically like using “Ctrl + F” within your notebook, so you can find the exact term you want to study super quick.

3. Freedom

Let’s be honest. It’s nearly impossible to get through a study session without checking Instagram. These time-sucking apps can really make your study sessions a lot longer than they need to be. Freedom temporarily blocks any disruptive apps or websites on your phone, so you can focus only on what’s important.

4. Google Drive

From spreadsheets, documents, presentations and more, there are a lot of materials involved in prepping for your exam. Google Drive let’s you pull up all of these files wherever you have an internet connection. Plus, you can access them via your phone, tablet or laptop. Convenient, huh?

5. Headspace

Exams are stressful, and the idea of submerging yourself in your study materials for hours on end is a recipe for burnout. Whether you enjoy this app during your study break or after a long day of exam prep, the bite-sized meditations it features will help you clear your mind of any stressors.
