Never waste another minute

1. Set when you’re awake

Set when you get up and go to bed every day. That’s all the time you have available and it’s up to you how you’ll use it. Your awake time also gives Shovel parameters for when to look for your study time.

2. Set when you’re busy

Set your fixed or rotating class schedule along with your activities, meals, and me time. Minutes matter, so set your commute time as well. Know exactly how you use your time to know when you can’t study.

3. Know when you can study

Your awake time minus your busy time equals your available study time. Shovel knows when it is and how long it is every day. Now you know how much time you have available to get every task done.

4. Know how long things take

Knowing what you have to do is not enough. You need to know how much time you need for each task. Shovel calculates the time you need for every reading and lets you set the time you need for tests and assignments.

5. Create repeat tasks

Now it’s easier than ever to create repeat tasks in Shovel. Don’t waste your time creating tasks one by one. If you do something or a regular basis, create it in a matter of seconds.

6. Know you can get it all done

Shovel’s algorithm compares your available study time with the time you need for each task. It takes start dates and other tasks into consideration and let’s you know if you can hit every deadline.

7. Plan tasks into specific times

Plan what task you’ll work on, when, and for how long. It’s an easy drag and drop in Shovel and it will complete your daily agenda. Now all you have to do is follow it and you’ll for sure get everything done.

8. Track progress to the minute

Always know how much time you still need for each task by tracking the time you spent on it already. Time yourself with built-in task timer and/or record how many pages you’ve read so far.

9. Update your estimates

Constantly have the most accurate estimates. Did a reading take longer than expected? No problem. Adjust your time per page and all future readings from the same reading source will update the time needed.

10. Check things off

There is no better feeling than being done with something, marking it done, and celebrating with confetti. Seriously! Seeing your to-do list shrink is a great motivator to keep going. One task at a time.

11. Put college in your pocket

Manage everything from your pocket. Plan, add, edit, time, track, and complete taks on the go. Add events, change events, add grades, plan each study block and much more all from your iOS or Android app.

12. Get perfect grades

Use the weighted grading rubric to know how you’re doing in each class. Enter grades in points or percentages. Our goal is to make sure you get perfect grades so always let us know if there is anything to do to help.

Shovel gives you a peace of mind

“If you have trouble with time management, get this app.”

Every “how to do well in college book” tells you steps to setup everything Shovel does but on paper/calendar but that does not come close to giving you the information you gain from Shovel. If you have trouble with time management get this app.

If you suffer from bipolar disorder or depression this app is a life saver. It takes off some pressure when you are in an episode. You can schedule “my brain is not helping me at the moment” time.

“The ultimate planning and anti-procrastination tool.”

Shovel has been incredibly helpful in my first semester of college. I highly encourage all students to get this app! Shovel lets students plan out assignments, commitments, and me time. It’s the ultimate planning and anti-procrastination tool!

Frequently asked questions

Why isn’t Shovel free?

No Advertising

Most of the popular ‘free’ apps that students use are supported by advertising, either by displaying ads, charging you to remove ads, or selling your information to some other advertiser.

The LAST thing students need in a study app is advertising and we would never share your email with any advertiser, ever.

No In-App Purchases.

In Shovel, every feature works together to create the best study plan you can have. No upsells, no surprises.

Is there a mobile app?

Yes, available on Android and iOS.

Can I switch my plan?

Yes, anytime you want.

Why is there no free trial?

Support

We’re a small team and we need to be able to focus 100% of our support time on our student users. We’re here for you!

Too many people sign up for free trials, skip right past the tutorials, but still ask dozens of questions. They either aren’t serious or aren’t even students. We just don’t have the time. 

We know that you want to know what you’re getting before you commit and that is why we created our demo video (above). By watching it you’ll understand what Shovel can do for you. 

Commitment

Shovel isn’t a game that you just open up and play around with. It is a serious tool to manage your entire semester. You won’t see the full power until you set it up completely which requires time and commitment.

Lastly, Shovel is not expensive. You can get it for just a single month, a semester, or a year. No matter which you choose, be willing to commit to it. Your grades DO matter.
