There are a lot of applications on the Google Play Store, which claims to help us manage our time & schedules, but not every app best fit for our needs.
Here are our top picks for the best time management apps which fits in your routine.
1. Loop ??? Habit Tracker
Loop is an ad-free and open-source Android app. The idea is that you create your own list of good habits, and track the progress over time by marking the dates when it was executed. It even has a reminder feature, so you are always reminded to complete these habits, which also send reminders on a connected smartwatch. Each habit comes with its own “Habit score??? which shows you your current streak, complete with detailed graphs and statistics.
The only complain I have with this app is the “widgets??? which fails to display on my home screen. Other than that, I think Loop is a good app. The minimalistic and material design is an eye-candy for any stock Android fans.
2. Ike ??? To-Do List, Task List
Ike, named after the former U.S President, Dwight “Ike??? Eisenhower, is a to-do list app, utilizing yet another time management method known as the “Eisenhower Principle,??? also “Eisenhower Priority Matrix.???
During the Second Assembly of the World Council of Churches in 1954, former U.S President Eisenhower said in his speech: “I have two kinds of problems: the urgent and the important. The urgent is never important, and the important is not urgent.??? This is how the former president is said to organize his workload.
Ike uses the same principle. It will prioritize your workload depending on how “important??? and “urgent??? it is. The “Eisenhower Principle??? has four levels, with the first one being the top priority:
- Important and urgent.
- Important but not urgent.
- Not important but urgent.
- Not important and not urgent.
Ike also allows you to add due dates and features a reminder in multiple timeframes or even location-based. That means you can set the app to remind you once you enter or leave a place. You can also add images and audio, which integrates with Google Speech to text (helpful if you’re the lazy type), as well as colorful material design widgets.
3. ClassUp ??? Schedule, Note for Students
College life is a bit messy, and the same goes for the class schedules. ClassUp will help you manage classes, create and organize notes, and even track some school-related tasks. What I like the most though is the widget, which provides you with a quick look at your timetable without actually launching the app. You also have choices of colors to set in each subject, which makes things a little bit easier. Especially if you like associating subjects with colors.
4. Todait ??? Smart study planner
Todait is yet another study-oriented app. It automatically plans and divides your study materials over a specific period, complete with detailed statistics. To use the app, you have to enter how much time you can spare for each subject, and how many hours you’d like to spend in studying per week.
One of the unique features of Todait is its ability to automatically redistribute the study material based on whether you are ahead of time, or behind the schedule. There is also a “Lock-out??? mode, which prevents you from using and getting notifications from other apps just until the stopwatch stops running. The pastel colors are also very eye-catching.
5. Flip ??? Focus Timer for Study
Always get distracted by your phone when studying? Flip is the perfect app for you. Flip measures your study time, and focus level with some weekly and monthly statistics. All you have to do is flip your smartphone, and the app will accurately measure your study time. There is also a mini-window feature, which continues to measure your study time even while using your phone as a dictionary or streaming a video lecture.
Flip utilizes a unique time management method called the “Pomodoro Technique???. Pomodoro was developed by Francisco Cirillo in the late 1980s and refers to a time management method, which uses a timer to break down work into intervals, with short breaks in between.
So here’s how the “Pomodoro Technique??? works:
1. Choose the task to be completed.
2. Set the timer to 25 minutes.
3. Work on the task, until the timer rings, and then mark it as finished.
4. Take a short break, usually 3-5 minutes. Then go back to step
5. In every 4 Pomodoros, you are rewarded with longer breaks.
6. Evernote ??? Organizer, Planner for Notes & Memos
Evernote must be the most popular app on this list. It allows you to take notes, write journal and memos, create a to-do list, import images, scan documents, take handwritten notes, and even make sketches. You can also clip a full article from your browser, which you can use offline.
The thing I like most about Evernote though is the ability to search an exact word from your handwriting, and scanned materials. This feature eliminates the need to open each of the photos to look for specific content. Just one search away.
7. Dreamie Planner
Dreamie Planner is a simple note app, with daily, weekly, monthly and yearly planner. Aside from its note, and planner functions, Dreamie Planner also works as a diary with a collection of unique emojis you can use as a calendar marker. To wrap up, the app also provides themes to suit your mood, and backups all your data to the cloud, which can then be easily integrated on the Google calendar app.
8. Family Shared Calendar: FamCal
FamCal is a calendar app designed to sync combined calendar data to each of the family members. So, every time a family member logs an event, task, notes, and birthday reminder, the data is shared to all devices. There is also an option to create shareable grocery, and to-do lists, and even contacts. Users under one account can also interact with things like memo with support for comment and push notification.
9. Focus ??? Productivity and Time Management
Focus is one of the best looking and effective time management apps on this list. Just like Flip, Focus utilizes the “Pomodoro Technique??? but does it at the simplest way possible. The color gradient is easy for the eyes, and the UI itself is beautifully executed. Focus allows custom session length, short break, and long breaks.
Just like Flip, Focus allows you to concentrate on your work, usually around 25 minutes, with short breaks at the end of each session. Every time a user completed four “Pomodoros???, he is rewarded by a long break.
10. aTimeLogger – Time Tracker
If you were looking for a free app that could suit your personal time tracking needs, aTimeLogger may be for you. It’s highly customizable so you can tweak it to fit your preferences and lifestyle. The tracking options are split into themes such as sport, work, shopping and more.
Besides keeping an eye on your time management, aTimeLogger helps you set your short- and long-term goals and track time toward them. You can use it to improve your productivity and focus on the important tasks in your to-do lists.
