From tools to help you organise your time and notes, to apps that help you focus, sleep or wake up, students of the 21st century have helpful digital advisors, assistant, and audience 24/7. Here are some of the coolest study apps.

With this app, you can create flashcards or choose one or already made sets. Great to review when you are bored.
