Term has started and you’ve been thrown back into the deep end with reading lists, 9am lectures and impending coursework deadlines.

Never fear, though, because if you need a study boost (and we think you probably do) there’s an app that can help you out.

From translations to calculations to notes that are safely stored on the cloud, here are the top five apps available in the Windows Store to help you study smarter:

1. Bing Translator

Bing Translator helps out with quick translations, including visual or text translation, and offers more than 40 languages. You can translate from anywhere, whether you have an internet connection or not, and hear translations spoken with a native’s accent.

Price: Free










2. OneNote

One Note takes and organises notes that are saved to the cloud, for easy access whenever and wherever – whether you’re in a lecture or the library or cramming on the bus. Make lists, draw, take pictures, search for facts, share with coursemates – all your info will be there when you need it.

Price: Free









3. SkyDrive

SkyDrive can store any file and provide automatic, immediate access from any device – making carrying around USB sticks seem like ancient history. Never suffer a last minute panic over that lost essay document ever again.

4. Calculator + HD

Featuring an interactive graphical display and a graph plotter, Calculator + HD’s interactive graphical display makes difficult calculations a little more manageable.

5. Advanced English Dictionary

Advanced English Dictionary includes more than 400,000 entries – there's no need to be lost for words ever again. It describes itself as “the most pleasant dictionary app to use in Windows 8” – which is nice.
