Thank you, this is a great selection of apps for the student. I also recommend the essay shortener, you can read more about it. Nowadays' authors in the US are well equipped to give quality academic paper services; professional staff possess a comprehensive understanding of the technicalities of academic writing and also possess the expertise of working with varied people in varied fields, such as academics, students, academicians, professors, universities and schools.
+1 for Affinity Suite of apps, excellent alternatives to Adobe's flagship products. I've been using Foxit PDF Pro as a replacement for Adobe Acrobat, it's a steal at educational pricing for a full-featured PDF editor/reader with cloud service and mobile app thrown in.
Blender should definitely be on that list as well for 3d modeling, some use it to do post/ visual effects and others use it to do CAD, it's very extendable.
If audacity is on that list for audio production, Gimp , Inkscape, Scribus and Libre Office or Open Office deserve a place there too as FOSS options although pretty much all of the FOSS options are not nearly as user-friendly as paid solutions.
Tex is ideal for serious publishing needs, the learning curve is steep, but very versatile and sustainable compared to desktop publishing in proprietary formats.
Though not free, the Affinity apps are a good set of creative applications — Designer, Photo, and Publisher. Each one is only $50 USD. Sketch is $99 for a year. And Figma has a free option.
Is that still widely used?
