8 Non-Existent Mobile Apps Every Nigerian Student Could Actually Use

September 21, 2020

We live in a world that is dominated by phones and other gadgets. For students, there are a plethora of apps designed to solve different problems and make learning easier than it used to be. Notepads and other studying/organisation apps are lit, but there is a lot more to create. We’ve done the difficult job of making a list of apps every student could actually use if they existed.

1. Freeze

This app will simply allow you to freeze time. Now, you won’t have to obsess about the stack of assignments you haven’t gotten around to doing. Just stop time and procrastinate for however long you need.

2. Porter Alert

Hostel porters are the bane of every student’s existence. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an app to warn you whenever they are within a 50-metre radius of your room? This would give you enough time to get squatters out of your room, hide your electric stove and other contraband, and ensure that you’re not in the middle of breaking any rule.

3. Landlord Observer

It would be unfair if students who live in off-campus accommodations don’t have something to help them deal with their problematic landlords too, and possibly evade them.

4. It’s Your Turn

You definitely need this one if you have roommates. Why? There are chores to do around the room or apartment, and nobody wants to do them. And this is usually the start of most of the arguments that break out. Now, what if there was an app that could decide whose turn it is to cook or take the trash out? Wouldn’t everyone be happier for it?

5. I Have A Thing!

Are you really bad at coming up with excuses to get out of hanging out with your friends or anyone else? Such situations require you to think of the perfect lie in a split second. I mean, there’s only so much “I’m busy” or “I have to do something” can do.  An app that can generate the perfect, most believable excuses cannot come fast enough. 

6. My Lecturer’s Schedule

Don’t you just hate it when you go to an early morning lecture and the lecturer decides not to show up? Granted, this doesn’t happen all the time. However, the point is that every student could use an app that can predict with almost 100% certainty the chances of a lecturer showing up to class. 

7. Wardrobe Assistant

I don’t know how much of a problem this is, but deciding what to wear to class can be incredibly difficult sometimes. What if there was an app built to suggest an outfit of the day from your closet? Think about all the time you will be saving. 

8. What’s My Route?

Sometimes, there are people you don’t want to run into on your way to class. With an app like this, you will be able to track the location of the people you want to avoid, and plot a different route to your class. This app will prevent a lot of awkward encounters. Get to work, science.
