Being a student is hard; you have to balance studying, socialising and doing work, be it homework or a job. We have our phones with us constantly throughout this, but have you ever thought about using your phone to make things easier for you?

There are plenty of apps out there that can turn your phone from timesink to a means of managing your time.

Let’s take a look at some apps that can help students be more productive.

Particularly great for students doing Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, WolframAlpha can help you solve problems and even show you how it got its answers, if you pay a little for the premium version.

There’s nothing worse than when you’re almost finished a project and BAM, your laptop dies.

All that work, gone.

EasyBib

I don’t know about you, but I hate writing up a bibliography.

It’s tedious and you have to get it exactly right or you get slapped with a plagiarism charge.

Fortunately, there’s an app for that.

EasyBib allows you to easily generate citations for books in over 7000 formats.

You can even scan the barcode of a book with your phone camera and you’ll get a citation just from that!

Zombies, Run!

It’s hard to stay motivated to go running.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll jog around the corner, get tired and give up.

It’s a little easier to stay motivated when you’ve got zombies chasing you though. Zombies, Run!

Mixes your music with an audio adventure - as a runner for a settlement after the zombie apocalypse, you need to run to gather supplies...and stay alive!

The app also records stats from your run, such as where you ran, your fastest kilometre, and more!

Zombies, Run!

Zombies, Run! is available on the Play Store and the App Store.

Uber

If you’re planning a night out, you’ll want to have Uber installed.

Guaranteeing you a safe trip right to your destination and cheaper than a metered taxi, Uber will get you home safely after a night of partying - it’s better not to take a risk and drive drunk!

Just drop your location and request a ride; you can track your driver and even share your trip with others so they can make sure you’re okay.
