10 Best Websites and Apps For Students

May 28th 2015 at 1:48 AM

The life of a college student can be really hard sometimes, especially when it comes to remembering the information and studying while there are so many distractions on your laptops and smartphones like Facebook and Twitter. Luckily, there are websites and apps that help students study and avoid procrastination. Here they are.


This is a small app that works as a phone call to remind you about your deadlines and important exams or to wake you up on your classes. If you are one of those sleepyheads that tend to push a snooze button and fall asleep again. Thus, if you have a phone call, you are more likely to answer. In a word, use it as a reminder and alarm clock.


Many students are used to read the material online instead of buying or printing (let’s save the trees!) it. However, if you spend too much time without moving your mouse, your laptop will fall asleep. Lighthead prevents your screen from doing that while you read.

Note: for Mac only.


This one will help you to stay away from the websites that interrupt your studying and distract you. It sets a block on Twitter, Facebook or any other websites that could be distracting while you have to be studying.

Note: for Mac only.


This is one is a version of Self-Control for Windows. It blocks games and social media to help you study more and procrastinate less. This program also has an option of blocking certain groups of websites.


This is an app that works as a reminder of what you are supposed to be doing while you start doing other things.  It will help you to focus on your tasks instead of fooling around.

Note: for Mac only.

Positive Reinforcement

With the help of app, you will be able to type your essay or paper and get a positive reinforcement after every hundred of words. By positive reinforcement, I mean that it will show you a picture of a pretty kitten, puppy or bunny.

Negative Reinforcement

This one is an opposite side of the Positive Reinforcement. This app times you for the amount of time you planned to spend writing and if you fail to make the number of words you wanted within that period of time – it shows you… a scary picture!


This website provides custom written essays and dissertations for students of all grades. So, if you need a professional assistant, editor or proofreader to help you cope with your paper – try one out.

Hemingway Editor

This application will clean up your essay for you. It detects mistakes and highlights the things you need to fix or changes them automatically.

Another Writing App


This app does not let you read the text you are writing until you have hit the word count. This helps you to let your thoughts flow and just write instead of going back every five minutes and change the previous sentences.
