Technology can be a valuable ally for students who can take advantage of numerous tools to make summaries, take notes, organize their study days and stay focused.
Pigro recommends the 5 best apps to study and concentrate on studying.
Paragraphs – App for summaries
How to make an online summary quickly? Paragraphs allows you to make summaries directly from your notes or books. How? Upload your documentation on the platform and type the question: Paragraphs extracts directly from your content the paragraph containing the answer that you can save in a new doc, adding text blocks and moving the various important paragraphs.
So you no longer have to read entire documents to find specific information, but you can ask Paragraphs directly.
The app is free and has no import limits.
Resoomer – App for automatic summaries
If you need to make automatic online summaries, Resoomer can help you. It’s a very simple free summary app: just copy and paste the text or URL of an article you want to summarize into the platform, and Resoomer will take care of the rest.
In just a few seconds you’ll have a summary, which you can download in various formats.
To summarize a short text (less than 40,000 characters) the app is free, while to create online summaries for larger students there is the Premium version which, at a cost of €4.90 per month, allows you to import up to 200,000 characters.
Things – App for organizing your study
Having clear goals is the first step to accomplishing them. Things allows you to plan your daily tasks, so you can schedule all your study activities and have a global vision for exams and projects.
It has 4 main functions:
1) Tasks: the individual tasks entered in projects. You can add notes, labels, schedules, and subdivide micro-tasks.
2) Projects: to achieve the objectives it is fundamental to concretize them in projects. Within each one you can insert the due date, to make sure you stay on schedule.
3) The areas: macro areas of your life: work, family, etc. so you can organize each aspect.
4) Your Plan: where you can see your lists and planned events.
Evernote – Note-taking App
Evernote is a free note-taking app. One of its mottos is “say goodbye to paper”: in fact, its goal is to make your university and school material digital, and to be able to interact with it within the platform.
Scanning documents allows you to always have everything at your fingertips, with the ability to take notes and combine them with existing material.
It’s an app to study better and everywhere, so you won’t have any more excuses!
Forest – App to focus
Forest, as its name says, lets you build your own virtual forest, but only if you stay focused. This application, in fact, lets you plant a virtual seed to which a timer is matched. Once the time starts, the seed will start growing until it becomes a tree.
However, if you give in to temptation and use your phone, the tree will dry up, ruining your forest.
Also, thanks to the partnership with Trees for the Future and your digital forest, you earn virtual coins that can be used to plant a real tree. More than 1 million trees have been planted worldwide with Forest!
