Written Christine Rees

Are you easily distracted? 

It’s easy to fall down the social media rabbit hole when you’re trying to get work done. The best way to avoid wasting time is to invest in a time management app. Time management apps can keep you on track and there are plenty of free ones out there! 

So, what time management apps work best for students?

If you’re looking for a simple app, then Toggl can keep you on track. By hitting “start”, the timer begins and you can add tasks to an ongoing project. Likewise, Toggl keeps the timer running across devices when you switch between them. So everything is synced! Also, if you forget to hit “start” Toggl sends you a reminder! 

Furthermore, Toggl’s free basic plan does what students need: manages time! Toggl is available for:

  • Android

  • iOS

  • Mac

  • Windows

  • Chrome Extension

  • Linux

Clockify
