Being a student can be fun, confusing, interesting, stressful and a struggle – often all at the same time. Here are 5 essential apps to help you survive student life:

1. AllRecipes – This app is for all those students who leave their Sunday night cooking plans until after the shops have shut – and have to rely on fridge leftovers. Enter the ingredients you have, choose what type of dish you want, and the time you're prepared to slave over a stove for it, and the app will filter the best results and recipes for you. Cooking made easy. Available on iPhone and Android.

2. Wire – Want to stay in touch with family and friends back home or new friends you make along the way? Look no further. This beautifully designed app offers free, crystal clear calls from anywhere with Wi-fi/mobile data. With high definition in-line picture, SoundCloud music and YouTube video sharing in personal and group chats, Wire is a great way to keep in touch. Available on iPhone, Android and OSX.

3. ExamTime - Forget bundles of notebooks, cards and posters. Examtime is the digital spot for all your revision notes. It features mind-maps, flashcards, quizzes and notes which can be used to make the things you want to remember a whole lot easier. You can also make your own revision timetable – and also share those with your friends for group studying or projects. Available for iPhone and Android.

4. SWORKIT – For those who are a bit ‘averse’ to exercise, SWORKIT helps take some of the sting out of keeping yourself trim. You choose a workout category and how long you want to do it for and then SWORKIT will help you find a program to meet that – along with a tailored video to guide you through your workout. There really are no more excuses not to workout. Free for iOS and Android.
