Top 5 Apps to Boost Your Productivity

Friday, January 14, 2022

Aiming to be a better student this semester? Here is a list of the top applications that you can use on a daily basis to boost your productivity:


  1. Forest

What if someone told you that avoiding your phone and focusing on work could help plant trees in the real world? Forest is a mobile application that plants a virtual tree every time you focus on your work and stay away from your phone. Leaving the app halfway will kill your tree.

Prolonged periods of focused work can eventually turn your tree into a lush forest! This application is a fun and visually stimulating way to stay focused and compete with friends.

The makers behind Forest have collaborated with a tree-planting organization, Trees for the Future, to plant real trees. You can earn and spend virtual coins on Forest and the team behind the app donates to their partner and places orders. Learn more about the app here


  1. Motion

Motion is a productivity app that lets you take control of your distractions by limiting your access to popular social media sites like Facebook and YouTube. The free version of the application can be installed on your browser and even gives you a report to check how productive (or unproductive) your screen time has been.  You can find out more about Motion by clicking here


  1. Tide

Are you a fan of the Pomodoro method to improve productivity? Then you will love Tide – the perfect combination of productivity, wellness, and beautiful design, all merged together in an application.

You can set up personalized Pomodoro-focus sessions throughout the day and accompany it with a variety of sounds, white noise, and calm music.

Leaving the app when you are working will lead you to “fail” the session. Other interesting features of the application include modes for sleep, nap, meditation and even beautiful quotes for motivation! Interested to know more? Click here.


  1. Google Calendar


Google Calendar is one of the most underrated applications of all time. This classic, go-to calendar application can help you organize all your classes, events, assignments, and even extracurricular activities altogether, both on your phone and computer.

Never miss any deadlines with the easy and clean interface. It lets you stay organized hours, days, weeks, and even months in advance!

  1. Grammarly

Having troubles compiling write-ups and reports for your class? Grammarly is a writing assistant that can help you ace your grammar, punctuation, spelling, clarity, and engagement.

It is available online, as a desktop application, and even as a keyboard tool for your mobile device!

While the basic version offers correction of basic grammatical errors and scores you on important factors, the pro version gives you full access to a detailed overview and suggestions to improve your writing.
