For the past 18 months, Covid has had us splitting our time between remote/virtual school/work and in-person. As a result, our habits and routines were turned upside. We collectively adjusted for the greater good (well most of us did anyway), but now we are preparing for a return to (a new) normal. Students and parents may need a little help getting back into the groove of juggling school and work under the continued threat of Covid. Luckily, there are a number of tools that can help like these 6 of the best organization apps designed to make work, school and personal life run a little smoother. Plus, they will make taking 10 minutes for self-care easier too.
We have only included apps that can be downloaded and used for free with many offering in-app paid upgrades for more options.
6 of the Best Organization Apps:
1. My Homework
My Homework is an essential tool for every student. It is like having your own personal assistant. It helps you keep track of classes, assignments, homework, upcoming tests/quizzes/exams, and it rewards you for completing your work. It’s also accessible even off-line so you don’t have to worry about requiring connectivity to access your information. You can even sync devices and set reminders for yourself all in the free version. Plus, it’s really well designed which makes it even better 😊
Any.do is a simple to use task and calendar manager that can replace whatever calendars, to-do lists, email reminders and/or scraps of paper you currently may use to stay organized. It will actually help you get more done. You can easily add items, set notifications, and review/prioritize/move tasks/items assigned to you on any day to determine if you will complete or defer them. It’s clean design and ease of use ensures you stay in control of your tasks/schedules and remain productive.
Microsoft OneNote is one of the most popular note-taking apps and rightly so. It will help you remember and keep track of…well, everything. It’s a place for you to store, record, organize, clip, search, and save…everything. Like, your notes, thoughts that pop into your head, articles you come across, videos and images you like and anything else. There are multiple ways of organizing all that information too. It’s free, easy to use, available across a variety of systems and can be synced and shared. It has too many features to list – check it out for yourself.
This is a great app for students because it keeps track of your exam schedule and other important (due) dates. It simple to use and counts down the days (to the second) so you stay on top of prep and never miss a start time. This free app offers in-app purchases and allows you to add notes and customize each reminder.
If getting multiple family member’s lives in sync is a challenge for you, you need Cozi. Cozi will help solve your problems by centralizing everyone’s schedules, appointments, activities, and other important events/tasks in one shared, customized calendar. You can also set reminders, build family recipe boxes, and create/track lists (shopping, chores, etc.) all of which can also be shared. This free app is simple to use and available from any mobile or computer. Plus, it’s also a 3-time Mom’s Choice Award Winner and The TODAY Show “must-have app” for a better life.
Juggling school/work schedules, homework, lessons and personal commitments can mean household chores get overlooked. Coming home to a messy, disorganized house does not make anyone’s day easier and the OurHome app understands this and wants to help. OurHome gives you the tools to assign chores to family members and track their progress to make sure everything is on track for completion. This not only ensures chores get done, but it also teaches kids to be responsible. Plus, there is a built-in rewards/goal system to keep everyone motivated. There is also a family calendar, list tracking capabilities, and a reminder/notification system. All these features can be shared among the family as the OurHome app is available on iOS, Android, and on the Web.
We hope these apps help make the coming months easier. Have you tried any of these 6 of the best organization apps? What do you think of them? Do you have any suggestions for other organization apps? Please let us know in the comments. We’d love to hear your feedback. Be sure to return next Friday when we review some great back-to-school app
