An absolute treasure, especially when you are doing your exhausting literature review and need a helping hand within easy reach. The Oxford Dictionary application is destined to become your most trusted helper, and the source of most of your screen time when drafting your essays towards the end of your semester.

Ok, this one isn’t exactly a big secret, and you have probably used it a million times before. But in the case you haven’t, it’s time you did and discovered how phenomenally cool this app is. Editing in real time with your seminar group means your group work is hassle free and made much easier!
Have you ever read up on the Pomodoro technique? If you haven’t then perhaps it’s time to get acquainted with it. This productivity booster is ideal for those of you with knack for procrastination.

TomatoTimer is – unfortunately – not an application at this point, but it still made the cut because of just how user friendly it is. You may wonder, “why don’t I just set a timer on my phone though?” and although you are right, most of the times we’ve opened our phone screens to put that 25 minutes timer we ended up scrolling through our Instagram feeds for a couple of minutes. So, we figured this one was surely worth putting on the list!
