This study aimed to determine the perceived effects of apps utilization to study habits and academic performance. Further, it also sought to determine the views of the participants and respondents on their engagement in math apps and their relationship with study habits and academic performance. This study made use of explanatory-sequential design. The purposive sampling design was used to determine the respondents in quantitative data while the quota sampling design was also used to determine the participants in qualitative data. The study revealed that the mathematical application that is mostly used by the students is the calculator app as it garnered the highest percentage value of 80.85.%. The participants agreed that math applications serve as an aid for math problems, aid for lack of teaching by the teacher, promote learning of specific lessons and increase, and help in improving their academic performance. Respondents’ perception of their utilization of math apps is due to technical problems. The respondents also agreed that math application also affected their study habits in which they become dependent on it which led to laziness and tiredness. In addition, this study also found that there is a significant relationship between respondents’ utilization of math applications and their study habits. Lastly, there is also a significant relationship between the study habits and academic performance of selected math students of Notre Dame of Midsayap College.
