    This is such an informative blog post! Some of these tools I’ve never even heard of. The iPhone flashcard app seems easy to use and so portable! Plus, the fact that all of your flashcards are in one place versus accidentally misplacing them certainly helps. I would love to share this information on TeenLife’s blog!

    Nice list of tools but I want to add a couple more. First of all, there shout be add-ons for browser that lock social websites for a certain period of time. It actually helped me a lot because with all the Facebooks, Twitters, Tumblrs and so on I was spending a huge amount of time there. I enjoyed a lot app called Freedom http://macfreedom.com/ which disabled Internet connection for a period of time that I get to choose, I never got distracted and was concentrated on studies.
    And the next great thing is a typing tutor for increasing the speed of typing on computer keyboard. I am a huge fan of Tux the penguin so I used to spend plenty of time on improving my skills on Tux Typing http://softwarepuppy.com/review/Tux-Typing.html I can’t say that I am a super professional but yet my wpm result is so much better.
    Thank you very much for the list of the software that you have made in this post, as a lazy and all th time distracted student I will definitely take a closer look on each one of them.
