3 Productivity Tools You Might Not Have Known About

April 6, 2011

With papers, tests, and the dreaded finals coming up, we know how easy it is to get distracted from studying.  An hour in the library can turn into an hour of surfing facebook or youtube, or just chatting with your friends and those endless snack and coffee breaks.

That said, there’s plenty of online tools available (for free) today that help you get back on track.  While many of these are tailored towards the working crowd, there’s no stopping a savvy and motivated student from using these to make better use of his or her time.

Without further ado, here’s our top 3 productivity tools online.  Give them a shot if you’d like!

  1. RescueTime – RescueTime.com – RescueTime is a time management tool that runs in the background.  Each week, it’ll email you a snapshot of how you spent time when on your computer.
  2. RememberTheMilk – RememberTheMilk.com – RTM as we like to call it is an iphone and online app that helps you create and complete todo lists.  You can also collaborate with others and send and delegate tasks to them.
  3. Pandora – Pandora.com – Okay, you’re probably wondering why we listed this one, but studies have shown that listening to classical music helps you concentrate and stay in the zone.  For only $36, you can have access to Pandora One on your SmartPhone and computer, commercial and ad free.  Setup a classical station and a “solo piano” station.  Trust us, you won’t be disappointed.
