Applications to improve your productivity if you are a student

Being a student is not easy, it is perhaps one of the most stressful periods of life for many, especially for those who also have to work or take on more responsibilities than the same studies

Organizing your time and making the most of it can become quite complicated, so never exceed any tools that help you be more productive.

Whether you want to better manage your tasks, make your study hours simpler, organize your time between going to classes, taking notes, studying for exams or managing your projects without dying in the attempt, for everything there are productivity applications that can throw you out One hand and make your life a little easier. The rest will depend on you.

Applications to take notes and organize tasks exist for all tastes, sometimes it is a matter of trying among several to see which one best suits our needs and also the devices and systems that we use most normally in our studies. In Genbeta we recommend the following:

  • Boostnote: although it is specially designed for programmers, anyone can use it. Boostnote is free, open source and cross platform and is great for simply writing. But you can use it not only to take notes, but to write code, or to write essays, or simply to create small folders with notes. The editor is excellent, has a mode without distractions and in full screen can help you concentrate very well on what you do.
  • Evernote: well known to many, Evernote is still one of the best options out there to organize your notes, in addition to allowing you to easily insert in them all kinds of links and additional content such as voice or images. It also has the advantage of integrating additional functions such as handwritten text with everything and search, document scanning, and search in these and in PDF files.
  • Bear has a style similar to the previous two but is only available for Apple devices. If you are one of those who use Mac and iOS then you can give Bear a chance, not only is it an app with an excellent design, but it is specially designed to organize all your ideas into portable plain text notes. If you are one of those who loves to write and stay organized, give it a try.
  • Trello is another well-known name, but it is of exceptional use to organize your projects using the kanban method. Trello is great for making lists with pending tasks and keeping a good record of progress. It's also great for organizing team projects, assigning responsibilities and keeping up with what everyone has done and what they need to do.
  • Zenkit is perhaps the best alternative to Trello, and if you want similar work boards but with many more functions, Zenkit offers you enough so that you can organize all kinds of work, with an extremely careful interface.
  • Notion if what you are looking for is a combination of basically all the apps we have mentioned, Notion offers you all that and more. There you find an all-in-one work area to manage notes, tasks, databases, calendars, etc. The app supports multiple integrations with other services, and you can import all types of files to it, from Word or Excel documents, to HTML files
  • Google Keep is an excellent option to add quick notes, they can include photos, audio or lists. All in an extremely simple interface almost like post-its digital.
  • Todoist if you are looking for something a little more complex but without too many complications, Todoist offers you lists of tasks with colors and comments, reminders, collaboration, and multiple integrations with other services.
  • Any.do if you want to keep things simple and also add a calendar to your task lists, Any.do offers you everything you need. Exceptionally useful to remember what you have to do, and make collaborative lists.
  • StayFocusd if you use Chrome or any Chromium-based browser, this extension allows you to limit the time you can spend browsing certain websites. For example, you can block access to Twitter for 4 hours, or you can create a blacklist of sites to which you are going to procrastinate. You can also do it the other way around, create a white list of allowed sites during study hours, or simply block everything.
  • Focus Booster is a simple Pomodoro watch that adds a small timer to monitor the time of your work sessions.
  • PomoDoneApp is also an app that uses the Pomodoro technique, but it integrates with a lot of third-party applications that you can connect to monitor the time you spend working on each of them.
