If studying has never been your biggest strength, then you sure are lucky to be a student in 2017. The market is loaded with apps to help you stay focused, boost brain power and sharpen your organizational skills. We picked a few of our favorite time management-specific apps, so get downloading and finally crack open that History 101 book, for crying out loud.

Finish

Touted as the “time management app for procrastinators,” Finish should be right up just about every college student’s alley. The app has a really cool timeframe capability that automatically calculates the duration of your tasks and organizes them by priority. It’s the perfect app for someone who can never quite figure out how to prioritize and balance a workload.

Focus Booster

If you’re looking for something simple to hold you accountable, check out Focus Booster. It operates as a stopwatch, so you set a study time duration (and can build in breaks) and a green bar shows you how much time you have left.

Evernote

Available for both mobile devices and computer desktops, Evernote is one of the best free time management apps around. This app enables you to create and find notes with voice commands, organize articles saved from Internet searches, and discuss topics with others from within the app.

Timeful (Update: Google removed the app from the app store and we’re currently waiting on a beta test version)

One of the best time management apps out there, Timeful learns the habits and regular routines of its users and uses that information to suggest the best time to schedule new tasks, based on when you’re typically most productive. Google recently acquired the app, so it’ll be interesting to see where the company takes it.

2Do

If you’re a visual person, 2Do might be the time management app for you. The tool uses color coding and enables users to categorize tasks by type and priority. It also allows you to defer set tasks without a penalty, so if something more important comes up, it’s easy to shift around jobs.

SuperNote

Staying organized can be tough, but SuperNote makes it really easy by allowing you to save all notes, recordings, images and other necessary information within your mobile device. Hate taking notes? Download SuperNote and record all of your lectures – so that Bio 101 class you slept through last week will live on forever.

Any.do

This app touts itself as “the world’s favorite task management app” and regardless of whether or not that’s actually true, this is a pretty awesome app worth downloading. It allows you to organize your day and assign tasks through a clean, easy-to-use interface. You can also create groups with other users, so you can collaborate on lists, shared attachments and more.

    Great list. Technology has revolutionized almost every field, including the methods of teaching students. I’d like to add one more tool to the list- ProofHub. Easy task and time management for students.
