How many hours do you spend on the internet, on social media, and watching movies? How many times do you want to be productive yet you’re not aware of the material you need for that purpose.
You do know that the internet has a vast array of things we could use for our benefit.
The problem with this is that so much information could be overwhelming when you have so many good things to choose from. Sometimes, you could get lost in this big sea of information, both good and bad and this is also true for apps as well.
There are so many apps that it’s difficult to identify some of the best. I made it a point to check out some of the best apps you could use to take advantage of your interests.

Also, they give certificates that are acquired via payment. The courses are free and do not require payment before taking a class. They are also available for learning at your own pace.
This is one of the best free educational apps for students with videos available for many courses. Instructors have a way of simplifying material for students to understand. High school students will find this app very helpful. Also, courses for standardized tests like SAT and MCAT are available.
Udemy is another great and popular app for learning just about anything from drawing classes to web development to personal development. You get to learn these lessons at your own pace and clarify any questions you have with other students and instructors alike.

If you’re taking a trip, working for a company, are a student, you own a business, or whatever you do, chances are you need to plan your activities. What better way than an app to help you achieve this as you cross off your list as your day ends.
Trello is a planning app, unlike most apps. It allows users to create boards and cards where they make their tasks or checklists, unlike the regular notebook lists kind. This is great for visual learners. Also, collaborative tools and sharing of your boards with other users is available. Despite these, it can be used offline but without the online features.
This app has a lot of users and so many can testify to its usefulness. You can access this app from any device you have and you can use it for project management, collaborations, and taking notes and media.
