It is 2018, schools have resumed and as a student you’ve probably made a new year resolution to get better in your academic pursuit.
I also believe you’re ready to get more committed to your studies and stop the procrastination that got you some poor grades last session.
And since you wish to improve and get better in your studies, here are some applications that can help you actualise your new year academic decisions.
These apps will increase your productivity, make your academic dream easier and your study more fun.

Every student is expected to have a dictionary, as a matter of fact, a student’s life is incomplete without a dictionary. It is 2018 and nobody expects you to go about carrying a cumbersome copy of the New Oxford or Merriam Webster Dictionary.
There are hundreds of dictionary apps you can download on Play Store, but I will recommend you go for the popular one.
Merriam Webster Dictionary apart from giving you the meanings of the words you look for will also give you the pronunciation of the word, its etymology and your recent searches.
