The semester is never more busy than in the weeks leading up to finals.

With project and paper deadlines looming, staying on top of your game as you take one step closer to the end of the semester is more crucial than ever. For that reason, and for countless others working to benefit your experience, keeping yourself organized and productive is the best way to cruise through the chaos of the last few weeks of school.

Since many of us already spend a significant amount of time on our phones, why not make the most of that time by downloading and using the following apps intended to help you find success no matter what the semester might throw at you!

1. Duolingo

This language learning app allows students to practice their foreign language skills through gaming techniques aimed at making the process enjoyable and fun. With over 30 languages to choose from, the different speaking, listening, and translation challenges will help you brush up on everything from nouns to verb conjugations in no time.

 

2. Exam Countdown Lite

Great for keeping track of schedules, this app will allow students to have access to final exam times and other deadlines as basically a virtually calendar or planner. You can even customize the colors and icons used for each subject!
