If you’re looking for something simple to hold you accountable, check out Focus Booster. It operates as a stopwatch, so you set a study time duration (and can build in breaks) and a green bar shows you how much time you have left.


Available for both mobile devices and computer desktops, Evernote is one of the best free time management apps around. This app enables you to create and find notes with voice commands, organize articles saved from Internet searches, and discuss topics with others from within the app.



If you’re a visual person, 2Do might be the time management app for you. The tool uses color coding and enables users to categorize tasks by type and priority. It also allows you to defer set tasks without a penalty, so if something more important comes up, it’s easy to shift around jobs.

It allows you to organize your day and assign tasks through a clean, easy-to-use interface. You can also create groups with other users, so you can collaborate on lists, shared attachments and more.
