Avoid Study Distractions, Organize Lists, and Scan Everything: 3 Apps You Didn’t Know Existed

Ok, maybe you were aware of these already.

But if you’re not using them regularly, or if you’re feeling overwhelmed, disorganized, and distracted, using one of these apps may help get us all through the rest of 2020 with a little more controlled chaos.

1. Microsoft To Do

This free app syncs with iPhone, Android, Outlook, and Windows 10 in order to keep your deadlines and important dates in check. If you’re looking for a new way to keep your to-do lists in one place, with the ability to create sub-lists and store documents, then this may be for you.

2. Microsoft Office Lens

This free app for iPhone and Android users gives you the ability to scan any document and save it in one place. If you’re looking for a place to electronically capture notes, business cards, or receipts, try it out.

3. SelfControl

Unlike parental control apps, you are in control of what and for how long you want to be free of distractions. For Mac users only, this free app is easy to use but hard to disable once the timer starts. If you don’t have a Mac or if you’re looking for something a little easier to hack your own focus session, then check these out.

Share this with someone who always complains about being too distracted to study.
