Enter an app by the name of High School Writing which hopes to help students learn exactly what they need to know to approach essay writing, right down to addressing college application essays.

The app, recently updated, includes ten major essays that students should learn. These consist of: Argumentative (Persuasive), Cause and Effect, Compare and Contrast, Descriptive, Expository (Informative), Five-Paragraph, Narrative (First Person), Narrative (Third Person), Opinion and Reaction (Response) Paper. Each essay type is vital for numerous different purposes so this app should cover all eventualities. It even goes onto teach students how to write the best college application essays to ensure that they know how to sell themselves appropriately.

Currently priced at $14.99 (regularly $19.99), High School Writing is one of the more expensive apps out there – however, its ability to teach critical thinking in such a simple way is priceless for those desperate to improve their grades.

High School Writing is available now. It’s an universal app with the iPad offering some great dual-viewing fields allowing for side by side comparison of websites for research purposes.
