8 Coolest SmartPhone Apps for Students


In today’s post we’ve got something for all students who are tech savvy – every student should be anyways! So we are making a list of the most relevant mobile phone app for students.

Smartphones are worthy of the name since they make our work easy by helping us carry out some tasks with ease. Fortunately, smartphones are not just for playing music, watching a video or taking selfies.

As a student there are a lot of other things you can do with your smart phone. Interestingly, you can save some money too. So let’s quickly run through some of the most useful smart phone app for students.


WPS office app

From the name I’m guessing you have an idea of what this app will do for you. Well with WPS office you are bringing all the awesome features of the Microsoft Office Suite on your Windows PC to your smart phone.

This means WPS office enables you to read PDF, Docx and PowerPoint files with no stress. Interestingly, you can also create any of these files using WPS office.

Even though the WPS office app wasn’t featured as one of the top in our list of best apps for college students, I can assure you that it’s an app that’s really worth its salt.


Everyone hates plagiarism and I can assure you that you may get in trouble if you submit a work to your lecturer and they happen to find that you copied or someone copied you.
