Like other's have said, useful apps really depends on what your needs/goals are. I think it'd be good to identify some goals and then research some apps that others have found useful. For example if your goal is to learn a new language, you can look on YouTube or Google for "Best language learning apps". There will be great videos or articles comparing apps that you can try out.

Here are some apps I found helpful:

I think it's important to have a calendar app that you like so you can easily manage your due dates, appointments, exams, etc. I found without one, I'd always forget something until someone else reminded me. Time management is an important skill to learn in school since once you graduate, no one will be there to remind you. Your employer will expect you to juggle multiple projects and prioritize tasks that all need to get done. You can even calendar block your time to manage your time day to day.

Another important one is a good note taking app. It's a good skill to learn how to write notes quickly and parse all the important information. I found earlier in school, I'd have multiple paper notebooks and was very disorganized. I got an iPad and starting putting everything in Notability notebooks. (GoodNotes is another great app). For work, we use OneNote exclusively to organize everything and easily share information.

A good email app is useful. I would only have notifications for my work/school accounts and would only use those emails for those respective topics. This way, I wouldn't get caught up in other emails and ignore my notifications (and miss an important email).

Some other apps I found helpful were Forest. I would use it to set a timer for myself when I needed to study or do a chore I didn't like. If I could make it through the timer without touching my phone, a virtual tree would grow. It was so satisfying to see a forest of trees that represented all the study sessions I made it through. A similar app by the same company made SleepTown. It's the same idea but it helps manage your sleep by building a building when you slept. I would stay up late scrolling my phone and this app helped me stop that since I wouldn't want my building to collapse.

apps really are only useful if they have connection to what you are doing. So I would look to see if your school has an app that they run. That can be helpful day to day. Also a good budget app would be good esp if you are financing your own education.

Try to document everything, use a program like Evernote, Bear Notes, or One Note.

Check out todo list, apps like Todoist.

My latest app I've been into is called Notion. Almost a personal wiki for your life.

It depends on what you need really and what your OS is. You could have organization apps like OneNote, EverNote, AnyDo, or Keep. You can have collaboration apps like Slack. I would search the app store by category and try some out.
