Which is the best app for school?

It is possible to peruse top educational offerings in the app store, but identifying the best ones is a tough task and demand attention. While some are developed keeping the needs of the high school students in mind, few are meant for the college graduates. There are apps available for teachers, educators and trainers as well. In simple words, the education industry is currently flooded with multiple apps.

Whether you are eyeing to exercise your mind, organise your coursework or enhance your knowledge, the app store can spoil you with multiple choices. Understanding that the demand for educational apps is growing at a rapid pace, I have listed out some of the top ones to help students and teachers choose the right one.

• Ready4SAT – Ready4’s series of test prep apps such as Ready4 SAT is famous among the students as this free app matches the potential SAT score with schools and academic programs across the globe.

• Photomath app – This useful app is meant for the high-school students who require guidance on how to isolate “x” in their algebra homework. Students can click a pic of the question if they are feeling lazy to write or type, and the app will quickly offer solution into separate steps.

• GradeProof app – Currently available only on iOS, this free app allow students to improve their writing style, check for originality and find out complex grammatical issues that are missed by other word processors. Students consider this app as the most efficient pocket writing coach.

• edX app – This app allows anyone with a smartphone to learn from top-notch higher educational institutions(MIT and McGill) and earn a certificate. The students can study from the online lectures, take quizzes, and complete assignments as per their own convenience.


One thing runs common among the above-mentioned educational apps. All of them have been successful in luring the attention of the audiences due to its ability to offer what the consumers want apart from focusing on simplicity to boost interaction.

So, if you are planning to launch an educational app, it is key to understand what the audiences want and identify the varied ways to make it interactive.



Some good ideas for an artificially intelligent mobile app

Innovation-driven new ideas are rare. In fact, many of the ‘new’ ideas are usually old ones that are presented in a new way that help the customers realize the relevance of the old ideas. The target is to build a ‘connect’.

Conceptualizing an app idea is simple provided we know the answer to question – Do you aim to perform some particular functions on your smartphone? An app should be developed with the aim to address a specific problem that hasn’t been resolved by any existing app.

The artificial intelligence space has been growing rapidly. The idea of a personal assistant (e.g. Siri, Alexa, etc) which connects us to the Internet has become common nowadays. The new age app designers are pushing the boundaries of what we think technology is capable of performing.

Experts are of the belief that artificial intelligence initiates with natural language understanding (NLU), ensuring that the smartphones and other devices are able to receive direct input or instructions. Some of the best-known examples are Apple’s Siri and Google Now.

An app for productivity rather than entertainment could be one that learns patterns in your behaviour or preferences. How about an algorithm that learns your lifestyle behaviour over time and can subtly modify it with notifications to become more healthy, or reduce a habit, like sending you a message “are you sure you want that cigarette?” just before you light up in your coffee break, or “why don’t you go for a jog” after an hour of video games or when your tv show finishes.

I would say that an app developer should not censor or analyze any ideas right at the beginning. Engage in brainstorming and do not worry if the idea is good or bad.
