There are many applications in my smartphone that have helped make my work easier. But when I have to name one, it’s Google Keep that I like the most. It’s a note-taking service developed by Google. It offers a variety of tools for taking notes, including text, lists, images and audio. It helps me safely store all of my notes in one place which has made my work easier as I no longer have to take the world upon my head to search for my notes.

The most-used application in my phone currently is a project-management platform named Adobe-Office Suite. It starts with a master folder for each overarching task, there I create a separate to-do items for each facet of the project. It has enabled me to get my data stored in a systematic manner and to them as per my requirement. Adobe Sign is another application that enables me to do my official tasks more easily during travels. Music players and social networking apps are among other applications that I use more frequently.

Coursera has helped me become more productive. This website works in association with universities and other organizations to offer online courses, specializations, and degrees on a variety of subjects such as engineering, humanities, medicine, biology, social sciences, mathematics, business, computer science, digital marketing, and data science, etc. The courses last for about four to 10 weeks, with one to two hours of video lectures a week. These courses provide quizzes, weekly exercises, peer-graded assignments, and sometimes a final project or exam. It has helped me take courses of my interest and served as a guide with my assignments.

Among the many applications in my phone, Pinterest is the one that I have been using most frequently. It has helped me get connected to the pop culture, get updated with the ongoing trends and various information related to it. Besides, Instagram and Facebook are among other social media applications I frequently use. These platforms have eased my access to the outer world in an easier and effective way.
Drishti Maharjan, A-levels student
For me, the SATVocabulary website has proved to be of great help. They have over 6,000 words with proper and precise definitions. The website also takes practice tests for you to analyze your ability and memory. I get to learn new words and their meanings everyday which have helped me strengthen my vocabulary. I have my choices in this website on whether to learn basic words or more challenging words. This website has helped me score better in the SAT test.
Sulav Gautam, IT student
It was not so long ago that we had a table full of gadgets like calculators, radio, and computer to get our works done. However, we now have smartphones ruling our worlds as an easier way to communication. I use Kindle mostly to read e-books available on the internet and office suite to get my works done which required a computer until lately. Since I am also interested in learning languages, “Duolingo” is an application that I have been enjoying to get a hold of languages and learn fluency in them. Besides, Milimilitia is a game application that I like to indulge myself in my spare hours.
