In the free training here at ScheduleU, you learn that there are two ways to time-block, or become a Total Task Scheduler. The first is to use an auto-scheduler, while the second involves manually manipulating a digital calendar. Each requires a unique combination of habits, practices, apps, and devices which you, as the user, must choose.
On this page we look at a single element – the software available to you to engage in either technique. This is just a plain list of apps… in the future, I will offer a feature by feature comparison.
These lists were last updated in March 2019.
All the above apps have seen new releases offered to the public within the past 12 months. The ones below seem to be dated.
Auto-schedulers act like a GPS for all your tasks, providing you with an optimal calendar with the click of a button. The best description of what they do is provided by the introductory video on the SkedPal website.
Digital Calendars Ideal for Manual Use
Compared to a standard app like Google Calendar, these apps are far better suited to the job of moving tasks from a master list to your calendar, in order to build a schedule.
These two add-ons are features which have been added into already existing apps. They both rely on machine learning, but have received few positive reviews or recommendations. We don’t recommend this alternative to Total Task Schedulers at ScheduleU.
