Who enjoys studying? Decades ago, it would have been a lot more fun if we had powerful study apps like the ones learners use today. Such applications offer a few notable benefits to an otherwise tedious task. First, they make studying more engaging for digitally-inclined students. Second, they can enhance collaboration in study groups. Third, many study-oriented apps have features that can make the process more versatile and allow for better information sourcing.
