They have apps for your phone and for your laptop, and you can sync what’s on your lists with your google calendar (if you use that). It is literally Todoist, and I mean spot on from the layout and features, so similar that I don’t know how it’s legal for both apps to coexist from different developers.
I make “projects” (basically folders) of each of my classes, make another “project”labeled Monday & Wednesday and Tuesday &Thursday to separate each of my classes, and then input everything from the syllabus into each class and their due dates. It’s pretty much todoist premium for free (includes reminders you can schedule) unless I’m missing something I second Todoist.
This really helps when you just see a mountain of work to do and allows you to break down the assingmets into manageable chunks.
This only works if you actually take the time to make the schedule weekly and actually do the daily work.
In coursework, I have a list for each class and put all my assignments (due dates, link to drive pdf with info, etc).
In GTD I have: I copy things from coursework to GTD each week.
The upside is sometimes you can work ahead and have some free time to reward yourself.
Other than that I haven't found apps to be very useful IMO. You don’t miss out on anything good by getting the premium, so the free version should do you just fine! For those wanting reminders, I recommend Tick Tick instead.
As one of the first homework planner apps (launched in 2009), it has many testimonials from users who enjoy its features.
is another app that helps to keep track of your academic life.
