The low understanding of scientific texts in the university field requires an urgent alternative from the didactic. Therefore, digital application strategies are an interesting alternative solution. The purpose of this research was to determine the influence of a set of applications and programs used as a didactic strategy in the process of reading and understanding scientific texts. To achieve this, two tests (pre and post) were applied to assess reading comprehension. From a population of 1580 university students, a sample of 310 was taken: control (160) and experimental (150). For the data collection, adaptations of the Test CLUni, 2015 were applied in one paper of indexed journals. The results reflected significant differences in understanding, in the results of the evaluation of entry and exit according to study groups. Therefore, it was concluded that Digital Application Strategies significantly improve the understanding of scientific texts.
