If any of the links have any issues for whatever reason, HERE’S THE LINK TO THE SAME LIST I COPIED TO MY DA ACCOUNT JUST IN CASE;
hey all! i found this neat app called “Notebook” where you can take written, drawn, to-do, and audio notes and organize them into little notebooks! you can also password/fingerprint lock notebooks and change the covers and colors of the notes! this is super helpful and pretty and it’s freeeee!!
Notability is like my digital notebook. I take down notes with it and I can also put marks and highlights on them. Highlighting on pdf is also made possible on Notability in which iBooks doesn’t do. When I review lessons, I can put highlights and marks in different colors in which I find more effective in retaining the information. I can also make illustrations.
Spotify is my favorite music streaming app. Premium subscription is very affordable and what I like about this is that there are various playlist available so I can just choose whatever I feel like listening to. I sometimes just find playlist that is best suited for my mood while studying or I listen to my own playlist. (I will have another detailed post about how I use Spotify for school.)
I know that when things got really serious (when I am cramming) or whenever I am not in the mood to listen to music, I use Coffitivity instead. Coffitivity is an app that generates “enough noise” for me to get things done. I can choose from morning murmur, lunchtime lounge and university undertones noises. I just choose whatever fits my mood. I usually use this when I am studying around 2AM because this hour is so quiet and I find it too noisy if I listen to music so I just use Coffitivity instead. There are also times that I feel like listening to music with some noises, so I can actually play a music while Coffitivity app is on.
I use quizlet if I find writing down my practice questions on a paper very time consuming. I believe typing is way faster than writing. My technique with Quizlet is that I type my practice questions using my laptop and sync them on my iPhone or iPad. With Quizlet, I can have my practice questions in flashcard type, game type or simply with the term on the left and its description on the right. I find this very useful because my practice questions are more handy.
This app is best for time management and it helps you not to waste time. I use this if I study by block which means that I study for 25 minutes and having a 5-minute break afterwards. After my 5-minute break, I study again for 25 minutes but this time my break lasts for 10 minutes. Another way is that I study for 25 minutes following a 5-minute break doing this twice and my third 25-minute study time now has 15-minute break.
So these are my essential apps for school in which I believe that they sure help me a lot in school. I hope you guys would find these apps very useful, too! Let me know if there are apps I might also need.
My get-your-life-together app of choice!
The Fabulous takes you through different journeys to transform your habits. I’ve been using it for 4/5 months now and it really helps!
Plus the aesthetic is 👌👌👌
Some awesome apps i have for stimming. Most are free, I believe Shadowmatic and Monument valley aren’t free anymore.
Heat pad is really nice and colorful. Its super cool, i’d check it out… And you earn new color schemes by playing the app! No purchase necessary!
Fluid Monkey is the second app and it’s a liquid paint stim game where you drag your finger across the screen to make pretty colors swirl everywhere.
Thisissand is a really calming game in which you draw with colored sand. There are some in-app purchases that only enhance your experience. They’re not necessary.
Relax melodies is a really nice app that has calming sounds. Some purchase necessary to have a full library of sounds and to import your own music to mix with the sounds.
Magic piano is a rhythm game in which little glowing orbs go across the screen and you then tap them to create pleasant piano music. Subscription required to have access to songs labeled “VIP”
Twist is a Ketchapp game (i mention that because there’s a few ketchapp games on here) thats really good for taking out your frustrations. Its a simple “tap at the right time” game, and i got really good at it! My high score is 118! If you get good enough at it, it’s mindless!
Smash hit is a game that can be frustrating, but hear me out. Its so satisfying to hear the glass shatter when you hit it with the metal marbles. This is by far the most frustrating game on this list, but i think the frustration is worth it.
Flutter and Flutter: Starlight are two very calming games in which you take care of butterflies and moths (respectively). If you turn on notifications for these apps, beware, they send you at least one a day (if that bugs you (pun!))
Stack is another game by Ketchapp that is very satisfying to play and it’s actually very pretty. The blocks/bricks are in gradient and its nice to look at.
Shadowmatic is a relaxing (paid) game in which you rotate objects to make the shadows look like easily identifiable silhouettes.
Zen koi is similar to flutter, but instead you play as the fish. You breed them and upgrade them and try to collect rare fish.
Pigment is a very calming coloring book app that’s ios only (sadly :
Monument valley is a paid puzzle game. I consider it an anti-physics game, if that makes sense? Its kinda trippy.
imago is similar to 2048 but with colors!
bridges is basically the same as flow, where you connect two dots of the same color. I love getting all the stars by completing the puzzles in the least amount of moves possible!
some apps that are helpful but not pictured are:
listen on repeat (i have this in another folder actually)
I have a billion language apps on my tablet so I thought I’d try to actually use some of them.
I’m really liking Kanji Study because it has different ways of helping you memorize things and it gives you a chance to practice stroke order as well.
I started by drilling the cards and then trying to draw them. I kept hints on because I don’t exactly know every character. Oh, and you can set it to show either the on- and kun-yomi, or just random vocabulary words that use the kanji. It also let’s you change between sorting by jouyou level or JLPT. And it has kana and radical study.
It’s a nice break from just drilling cards in Anki or Memrise. I feel a bit more engaged trying to remember how to actually write things.
This is a new (and quite spectacular!) Cryptozoology app for iPhone called Cryptozoology Today. While their wiki section is lacking, they have an amazing news section and sightings section. It was released on March 3rd, 2016 and you can find more information from their Twitter. It is free to download and use!
Update: The creator of the app contacted me to let me know that the Android version of this app was just released!
PlantNet - For Apple and Android. PlantNet allows the user to catalog plants using pictures and notes. You can also browse through a database of thousands of plants and use pictures and descriptions to identify your unknown plants. However, the app currently only deals with flora of 4 areas: Western Europe, Indian Ocean, South America, and North Africa and you can only browse one of these areas at a time.
Best Essential Oils and Aromatherapy Guide - For Apple. This app allows you to choose essential oils for different healing purposes and gives directions on how to use essential oils properly. It also includes a database of oil blends for certain purposes.
Spellcaster! - For Apple and Android. This app comes with a spell book that is occasionally updated. The spells in this app include a blessed water recipe, a spell to increase psychic abilities, and a depression ward. You can also view your daily horoscope and visit the app creator’s blog.
Drawing Desk - For Apple and Android. While this app isn’t geared toward Witches it is very useful when designing sigils. The app allows you to incorporate photos, doodle, and sketch. It very easily allows you to draw sigils over photos which can be very useful.
Mercury Retrograde - For Apple (there are similar apps for Android). This app tells you when Mercury is in retrograde and when it is going into retrograde. While this app is sort of a one trick pony it can be useful for those who are especially affected by Mercury in retrograde.
SkyView - For Apple and Android. This app lets you look through your phone at the the stars and planets. It shows you where the planets and constellations are in the sky and gives you information about them. Not only is it just super cool in general but it is immensely useful for planetary witches.
Stop, Breathe & Think - For Apple and Android. Breathe is a guided meditation app that includes sections with helpful information and tips. You can also keep track of how you’re feeling and track your progress.
Safety Note + FREE - For Apple. Another app that may not seem inherently Witchy, Safety Note allows you to keep notes safe by requiring a pattern to enter the app. It’s perfect for those who want to keep their spells and notes protected discreetly.
Apps every SB needs:
•PayPal/PayPal here- here is a free card scanner that they will send you. I use my paypal for nannying so it’s a “business” account but if I ask for something and daddy doesn’t have cash or PayPal I can take plastic this way lol also, PayPal has a card that they can send you where your $ can actually be used off.
•Venmo- I really use this more with my friends than with SDs BUT this is an easy way to request cab $ or whatever and you can set it to private. Huge perk is customizable profile so you don’t have to use your real name. Also, this dumps into any account you want to add and doesn’t have any fees.
•Cash- this one I’ve only used once but it is also customizable so you can use a fake name and everything else. This one is for people who don’t want to download an app, they can pay online with a link through here.
•Google Wallet- hooks up to your e-mail (see: fake Sugar e-mail) and also gives you a card. This is another money transfer app that I like because if it’s using your sugar e-mail everything should be locked down and private and because having a card is nifty. This is the card I use to pay for flights that I’ve sent SDs through Google flights.
•Google Hangouts/Google Voice- you have to have google voice but hangouts allows you to send/receive pictures which is huge. You can also choose your area code with this which makes it a more “real” number than most other apps I’ve seen.
•SA- because while it’s salty as hell sometimes you find a good one, and it’s always good to stay online.
•Airbnb- I love this for when I’m traveling to be with my SDs, hanging out with friends, or in between travels. It’s also amazing because you can find last-minute rooms reasonably which is important if something goes awry with an SD/POT. I never would stay with an SD here and use these as my places to decompress that they don’t know about. & they’re usually super homey.
•Hotel Tonight- for when you’re traveling with your SD or for when you/your SD just can’t wait to get home. Last minute hotels as opposed to Airbnbs.
•Truecaller- search anyone’s number to see if they’re a real person/who they say they are! There are better sites for this but Truecaller ain’t bad.
Feel free to let me know if there are any that I need to add. I know I just reblogged some info about PayPal/Venmo/Google Wallet & SW that’s really helpful and important so check that out too.
I’d like to tell you all about the app REFUGE RESTROOMS :) This app is for my fellow transgender and gender nonconforming pals to find gender neutral / unisex restrooms!! As you can see, there aren’t too many downloads!! I love this app though and it is extremely helpful!!! You can log new restrooms as you find them to help your transgender and gender nonconforming pals!! Please help out!!!!!!
Here’s a list of apps that I use to assist with all my Wicthy needs! I am an Android lover, so unfortunately some of these apps may not be available on iPhones.
Star Chart - A must-have for all your cosmic needs. This app allows you to easily locate stars and planets, no matter where they are! There are many apps similiar to this one, but what did it for me is the beautiful pictures of the constellations, as well as the expansions for meteor showers, comets and satellites.
Galaxy Tarot - In my opinion, one of the best Tarot apps out there. Obviously, I love the galaxy theme, but this app is far more interactive than most. This app lets you shuffle your deck as much as you want (cut it as well!) and then you tap on the deck to pick your cards. It feels less like an app, and more like a real deck. I also like that this app will tell you the meaning of the cards in your spread, as well as a deeper examination of the card combinations. There is also an optional “pro” version that gives you access to a journal and the ability to add notes as well as your own tarot meanings.
Soul Wisdom Oracle Cards - I enjoy Oracle cards. It’s a totally different feel from Tarot cards. I use Oracle cards with my Tarot to gain a deeper insight to what my Tarot deck is trying to tell me. This is another app that is very interactive and will easily give you meanings for the cards. The only downside to this app is that you need to buy the “full” version in order to access the entire deck. Indie Goes Software has many different themed Oracle Decks, however you need to buy the full deck.
Galaxy Runes - Created by the same people who made the Galaxy Tarot. It shares all the same features, just with Runes instead of cards.
Lunafaqt - A useful app for Esbats and Sabbats. It gives you the rising and setting times for the sun and the moon, as well as the zodiac sign for the moon. There is also a handy widget that shows you the moon phase on your home screen.
Candle - A very basic app without much features. It’s just a lit candle for those emergencies when you run out of the real thing.
Spellcaster - A cute app that has a simple tarot option, a spell book and daily horoscopes, as well as a link to the creator’s blog. The spell book only has about five spells in it, and isn’t that glamorous, but it is a cute set up and I think it will be great once it has been added to. This app (and the blog) is something cute to look over during your morning cup of coffee.
Chakra Doctor - This app contains a (rather lengthy) test and your results tell you what each of your chakras is ranked at (underactive, overactive or normal). Something like this doesn’t necessarily tell me that I need to do chakra work, but it does give some insight to any areas of my life that I may be neglecting. And interesting “witch” meets “psychologist” kinda app.
Binaural Chakra Therapy - A nice binaural soundtrack for meditation. There are many other soundtracks on YouTube, however this app doesn’t drain your data.
Wiccan and Witchcraft Spells - I am not Wiccan, however this app has a great amount of resources for the basic Witch, as well as playlists and wallpapers. This is one app that I actually bought the “pro” version.
Stones and Powers - If you would like a tiny dictionary of crystals, this is a good choice. It’s not super indepth, it just gives a small blurb about each crystal, but it’s a good beginner app.
“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”
Here are a list of 10, free apps that can help you organize, study, and strive for higher grades
1.) Focus Now This app has really helped me focus and stay on task. It helps eliminate your bad habits and encourages you to develop desirable habits instead. By using a timer, this app forces you to put down your phone in the allotted time you’ve requested while you plant a plant/tree in your farm. If you go on your phone, you kill the plant. This habit building game sounds slightly cheesy, but it really does help and I definitely recommend this app. I also know Focus Timer is a good habit developer app as well that tracks your progress and the hours you have spent studying.
2.) Maths Alarm Clock If you are not a morning person like me and you have a fairly difficult time to get up, this app is perfect. With its super annoying alarm, it demands you to do a math problem in order for the alarm to stop. This way, your brain wakes up and plus you get extra practice at math! You will hate this app in the morning, but it gets the job done and that’s what matters.
3.) Calculator # I always forget my calculator in my locker and this app has saved my math grade. It provides users a no cost, scientific calculator. You honestly cant go wrong with this.
4.) Flashcards+ Being unorganized ( in the process of fixing this ), I tend to lose my flashcards. When upcoming, cumulative tests come up, this bites me in the butt. This app allows people to create flashcard decks and allows you to customize them by inserting pictures which can really help visual learners. Plus, typing out flashcards take little amount of time in comparison to hand writing them. However, if you find that you learn more effectively by writing down things, then stick with that! Just make sure you don’t lose the notecards.
5.) Quizlet This app is slightly similar to Flashcards +1, but it introduces more features.Unlike Flashcards+, you can play games on the topic you are studying, making it more fun to learn. You can also share and find notecards with your peers.
6.) Khan Academy The founder of Khan Academy literally deserves 3841481 medals. With thousands of videos dedicated towards chemistry, math, biology, physics, etc, Khan Academy has helped me understand so many concepts that I could not grasp. He explains the concepts in great detail while making it easy to understand and follow and I can’t even put to words on how much I love Khan Academy.
7.) Photo Math If you’re stumped on a math problem in your textbook, take a picture of the math problem you are stuck on and Photo Math will grant you a step by step guidance on how to get the answer. DON’T JUST COPY DOWN THE STEPS, ACTUALLY KNOW WHY AND HOW THEY GOT TO THE ANSWER. If you just copy it down, then you did not learn anything and you’ll get the problem wrong again when it appears on a test and that is not very ideal.
8.) Gojimo Gojimp provides thousands of practice AP tests, SAT Test Preps, ACT Test Preps, and tons of other tests for students! AND ITS FREE!! The app supplies free quizzes that give detailed, thorough explanations too.
9.) Vocabulary Builder from Magoosh If you’re interested in expanding your vocabulary, you will love this app. Vocabulary Builder is great for preparing for the SATS!
10.) Todoist If you’re in desperate need for a planner, then Todoist is gonna be a lifesaver for you. Todoist encourages users to manage their tasks with their simple working app. It’s perfect for organization and increasing productivity. c:
