Top back to school study apps

Students across the Heartland are heading back to school, but that means they'll be hitting the books as well.

Check out this list for some of our favorite back to school apps this year:


  • Made for studying on the go.
  • Students have the ability to create their own flashcards, and be tested on everything from those animal kingdoms to the week's spelling list.

  • It's free for Apple and Android users.


  • Helps keep students with multiple classes organized.
  • The app keeps homework assignments and deadlines all together in one place.
