Being a student in London can be difficult. You can get caught in the hussle and bussle of the city and organisation can go down the drain as you’re having too much fun. But organisation can make your day run much more smoothly. There are many ways that you keep yourself organised such as keeping a diary, making yourself notes or getting someone else to organise your day. But wouldn’t it be much easier if one device organised everything for you?
Well your phone can. Thanks to the wonderful app store there are many apps on the market that can help you organise your life and keep on top of your schedule. From shopping lists, to assignments, to remembering appointments to visit the likes of studio accommodation in London or even the dentist, it can be tough organising your time without forgetting something. With these useful free apps you will never miss a deadline again. Here are some of the free apps that will help you accomplish your goals:
If you’ve forgotten to send an important document to a classmate or lecturer, do not fret. If you save your documents to Google drive on your laptop you can easily access it on your phone which makes it much easier to share documents with others. You can access your files simply, whether it is photos, videos or documents; it’s also great for PDFs. Simply search for files by name and content. You can even create and edit documents on the app (perfect for when you forgot to do an assignment).
Timeful helps you to find time for things that you want to fit into your day without avoiding the things you already have planned. It connects to your existing calendars to get a sense of your important tasks and lets you also add new appointments or add things that you like to do during your day. The app suggests times that might be optimal to complete tasks you assign yourself and becomes smarter the more you use it as it learns from your behaviour of accepting and rejecting.
Note taking can be a powerful tool for organising any aspect of your life. With Evernote you can take notes using text, images, audio or a mix of these and you can then organise them into note books. A popular feature on Evernote is optical character recognition which makes text in images searchable. Evernote synchronises all your files by saving them to a cloud service meaning anything you create or alter from your iPhone will be there waiting for you when you log into any other version of Evernote.
Todoist is the worlds most powerful to do list and helps you to achieve more. The beautiful, innovative design allows you to collaborate on shared tasks to help you reach your goal which is perfect when working on shared projects. Much better than a simple to do list, the app allows you to create sub tasks so you can break down bigger tasks into smaller ones. The app will notify you when important changes happen via emails or push notifications and you can set reminders via email, push notification or SMS that will alert you when you’re on the go. The app allows you to check out your productivity and see your productivity trends which will highlight your areas of weakness.
