The technology advances at a fast pace, especially when it comes to the Android universe. If in terms of smartphones lately there is not so much progress, in the app development part we always see something new and useful. An interesting field is the study area. Thinking about it, we gathered 7 apps that help teachers and students in the organization of the study, from high school to university.
The current generation of young people is the most connected to each other in history. In this respect, apps have gained an important role in helping to organize studies, and also in accessing content material that supports what is happening in schools and universities. For example, students from distance learning colleges make up for the absence of a teacher, physically speaking, looking for complementary material on the internet. In addition, apps play a key role in connecting students and teachers beyond the classroom. That’s right, nowadays it is already common for students and teachers to communicate outside the school environment, through online means.
So let’s go to our list. They are apps for all ages or study stages, whether in high school, pre-university entrance exams or attending university. In addition, it is very useful for those who teach. Many of them serve to organize life, that is, they are not restricted to students only. Come on.

5. Pomodoro Challenge Timer
The Pomodoro Method was created by the Italian Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s and is based on the assumption that short intervals between activities guarantee greater focus during work. Cirillo started using a kitchen timer in the shape of a tomato (in Italian, pomodoro) to establish strict intervals of work, as well as short rest times.
Based on this method, the Pomodoro Challenge Timer app can help you better manage your time and track your productivity. By tracking your performance, the “Pomodoro Challenge” helps you identify which days of the week you are most productive, as well as helping you build feedback on your own performance over time. For those who like to develop productivity management methods, it is an exceptional tool.
