If at the end of each work day you are wishing you had two more hours to get all of your tasks done, there’s a good chance you’re struggling with time management. Between a lack of organization and numerous distractions, time management is an issue for most of us.

But modern technology is giving us a time management hand. Here are some time management apps that will help you be more focused and productive.

RescueTime

One of the coolest things about this app is that it runs quietly and securely in the background of your computer or mobile device. Essentially, RescueTime tracks how much time you spend each day on various websites and applications. It then gives you a detailed report on your activity so you can see where you’re being productive and where you’re not. If you really want to kick up your time management a notch, go for the premium version, which will send you alerts and even block websites for you.

Evernote

You may have heard of Evernote before but weren’t exactly sure how it could benefit you. This free productivity tool helps you capture all of your thoughts and ideas in a variety of ways. For example, you can use notes, voice recording, or images for a quick reference. The app also lets you record your meetings, interviews, and speeches, and helps you create lists. You can also add voice or text attachments and share your files with friends and coworkers.

Toggl

You can’t effectively manage your time if you aren’t sure how you’re spending it. This app tracks how much time you spend on your tasks and projects, then allows you to analyze to be more efficient and organized.

Schedule Planner

This is another app that helps you manage your daily tasks more efficiently. The neat thing about this tool is it lets you plan your day in an easy-to-use interface, then place items in color-coded categories, like work and break time.

The app will then generate charts to help you see at a glance how you are spending your time and what tasks you are managing to get done.

Time management will always be challenging to people, but these apps can help you become a little more on top of your game.
