Productivity tools

Apps can help you to manage your time, stay focused and prioritise your workload. There are lots available, here are a few that UEA students have used and found helpful.

 

To-do list apps

Using to-do lists will help you to keep track of what you need to do, and start to plan when and how you will complete these tasks.

Remember the milk

A free tool which syncs with all of your devices to help you to manage tasks. The app sends reminders and allows you to share your lists with others.

myHomework

a student planner that syncs across your devices and helps keep you organised, with options to set reminders for tasks and assignments.

 

Distraction blocking apps

These apps can help to minimise distractions and help you to focus on your work.

StayFocusd

This Google Chrome extension can help you to stay focused by restricting the amount of time you can browsing websites. Once you reach your allocated time, sites will be blocked for the rest of the day.

Forest

An app/extension for Google Chrome. Plant a seed in the Forest. In the next 30 minutes, this seed will gradually grow into a tree. An incentive to resist browsing other websites; if you do, your tree will wither away!

 

Priority apps

These tools you decide what order to complete the things on your to-do list.

Todoist

A free app, with a premium version available to buy, that lets you organise tasks into actionable lists. You can also share your lists with others, and visualise your progress.

Trello

Trello is a great app to help you to manage your work and prioritise tasks. Create colour-coded cards of the things you need to do, and drag them around them to create lists and prioritise tasks.
