Are you stuck in the midst of revision not knowing what to do next or spending too much time checking the internet? If you are then look no further. Here are eight productivity apps to get you back on track and focused. Come on the A*s!!

Remember the Milk 

Remember the Milk is a to-do app to which you can create either complete revision notes or lists to. You can use them while you are out and about and have them synced up to your computer ready for when you get home. You can prioritise your revision and set yourself tasks sand reminders and if you do set reminders you'll receive texts or emails telling you to get to work so you'll never have an excuse! 

Exam countdown

Exam countdown gives you the opportunity to have all the dates of your exam stored in one place as well as being colour coded. You'll never forget an exam and will be able to plan your time leading up to each exam. 


AntiProcrastinate is an app which enables you to lock your phone when you need to get some work done and don't want any distractions. You can lock your phone for different lengths of time, keep a timetable of all your revision sessions, and if you try to use your phone in 'lock mode' extra time will be added. 


AppDetox helps you to calm down your mobile app usage, and take a digital detox. You are able to set your own rules for your app detox, locking yourself out of those over-used apps, and if you violate one of your own rules, AppDetox will remind you to take a break and stop your heavy app usage. You can even keep track of these violations in a log so you'll never want to pick up your phone again check Facebook again. 


If you've no idea where to start Procraster uses prompts and short-term rewards to help you tackle projects one task at a time. When you’re stuck, you select the project you’re working on from your project list. Procraster prompts you to identify the source of your block by offering a list of common culprits and responds with some sage advice about your problem, then asks you to set a single task to perform and choose an incentive (including "coffee" and "check Facebook"). From there, Procaster’s timer breaks the task down into a series of 25-minute sessions. When you finish a session, you can collect your reward. Procraster can be configured to add completed sessions to your calendar so you can track your productive time and use it as motivation. 


Finish combats procrastination by sorting scheduled tasks into short-term (within 0-2 days), mid-term (3-7 days), and long-term (8+ days) due dates. As time progresses, your tasks move through the term blocks, with Finish pushing you reminders at every step. Ignore them at your peril: the app will continue to bother you about a task until you mark it complete. 


StayFocusd increases your productivity by limiting the amount of time that you can spend on time-wasting websites. Download it onto your web browser and set time limits for your go-to procrastination websites. Once your allotted time has been used up, the sites you have blocked will be inaccessible for the rest of the day.
