We recently presented you to a list of useful apps for iOS, designed to help you with studying. However, we never meant to ignore Android users, so here we go again with another set of apps for the classroom, this time with a green robotic flavor...

these are what you call apps for students. students are supposed to have a little budget, these apps are cheap and half of them are free, unlike the one for iOS, theres something for $29.99 and its ridiculous..

yeah that $29.99 for that Oxford dictionary is way beyond many users budget but I might be wrong since in my country iphone/ipad users are mostly if not all are society elites in financial terms.

good start but there are a few mistakes/needed edits.

1) wikipedia is not an allowed source in any real school, so we cant use it for anything "official".

2) flashcardmachine.com and its apps for ios/android should have been included. make a central flash card database where anyone with the app can search it, save it to their device, and flash at any free moment. Its the most useful app in my arsenal besides google calendar.
(and i mentioned this in the ios app article. :) )

i agree with you.
I get so annoyed with professors telling me not to use Wikipedia as a source over and over again.
and the flashcardmachine is great so much easy than actually writing flash cards out.

true, but everyone (including professors and teachers) uses wikipedia to look up quick info or check facts. I wouldn't really consider that as a mistake or needed edit.

I think cam scanner is better designed

and realcalc is a really good calculator

Very handy apps.. As a college student I've tried them all and more, and have finally settled down on a couple. For anybody interested, here are my favourite 15 to use in class:
