  5. Forest
    Basically, this application is a timer, but the interesting thing is that it has a unique way to keep you focused on your lesson. By spending time studying, you are meanwhile planting a virtual tree and earning some coins. The very thoughtful and creative thing about this app is that the coins that you earn will be saved up and used to help real trees in  countries in Africa.   It encourages people to undeniably put down their phones because the trees will not grow if the app remains closed.

  7. Photomath
    Needless to say, this application is not for cheating; however, it helps you to solve maths problems in less than a minute by just taking a photo of the problem. The app does not only give you the answer but it also gives you an explanation of how to solve the problem step by step. The main purpose of this app is to encourage students to try solving maths problems by themselves first, then use the app to recheck the answers. Since the solving method is different for each person, you should not rely too much on the app.
