Learning is a must. Studying, on the other hand, is a matter of life and death especially if you have parents. Got to make them proud, you know. To help the students catch up with the information era, a few apps have been developed over the years by experts of education. They possess facilities usually in forms of online tutorials, but some are willing to go even beyond that. For this article, we are going to compare those apps to find the best and most comfortable one.
To begin with, let's discuss what the apps do. The most basic kind provides reading materials according to national school syllabus which helps students to check out lessons if they are not in the mood for books. E-Books, except these guys, can be tailored to every student's need. However, to access loads of information (more than usual) normally require a membership and you need money to get it. This means it is crucial to find the right app to subscribe.
Ruangguru was founded in 2014, and since then its popularity has skyrocketed largely due to its primarily tutoring system with flexible options. So far it has the most packages yet seen with good information on each. A simple website and app design also help students navigate its system to satisfy their thirst for knowledge. 
On the other hand, Quipper is not a very well-known app, simply because this 2010 app has only spread its wings to Indonesia lately, making it relatively unknown to Indonesians. Not to mention, Quipper's facilities are almost shrouded on the web which made research so difficult. But, thanks to Wikipedia (which isn't a trustable source, I know), it can be said the services it provided would lose compared to Ruangguru.
Next on our list is Zenius which existed even before Ruangguru and Quipper. Its (only) trump card is video-based learning. Zenius offers a step-by-step explanation on every subject, but with a catch. To access all videos, one must first buy the membership ranging from one month to twelve. Now, this system isn't very different from the others, but it's cheaper. 
Now to pit the three of them against each other, the winner that would come out is Ruangguru. With Quipper, its downfall would be its relatively same price as Ruangguru but with a lot fewer features. Zenius wins the price category but it has no other winning features than that which means a no.
