Need to plan and manage your time and work more effectively? These Android timetable apps are the perfect way to do it.
Creating a schedule and sticking to it has proven to improve efficiency in both work and life. A simple weekly timetable planned out on paper can go a long way, but with smartphones becoming such an integral part of our lives, it’s best we make the most out of them.
Whether you are a student, teacher, or simply someone looking to plan their week effectively, there are a handful of apps ready to assist you with creating a schedule. We have tried and tested the most popular ones of the bunch, and have for you some of the best timetable apps for Android.
1. My Study Life
My Study Life is possibly the only schedule planner that you need as a student. You can add subjects, create a schedule, and input dates of upcoming exams in the calendar view. Assignments can be added as tasks and will also show up in your dashboard.
Speaking of the dashboard, My Study Life has a minimal approach to displaying all your current and upcoming assignments and exams.
Details such as the room number and the name of the teacher can also be easily added to individual classes while creating a schedule. My Study Life has automatic backups, so you never need to worry about losing a carefully planned schedule.
Another edge that My Study Life has is the lack of any ads and in-app purchases.

2. Class Timetable
Class Timetable is an incredibly minimal and to-the-point timetable app. You can add classes to create a weekly schedule and can even assign colors to each subject for better visual interpretation. Although there’s not much you can customize while adding classes, there’s a description box that can be used for the same purpose.
There’s a separate tasks view where you can add assignments, exams, or other events. These tasks can be bound to any of the classes that you’ve added. Tasks under the same class will also appear in a grouped section.
Class Timetable also has a pretty little widget, although you’ll need the pro version of the app to unlock the “tomorrow” and “tasks” views.
Other pro features include the ability to export your timetable, set notifications for each class, add reminders for tasks, and get rid of ads. However, we found the free version to be sufficient in displaying a simple timetable of your upcoming classes.

A simple name for a simple app—Timetable lets you create a weekly schedule, manage tasks, add exams, and set holidays to better plan your academic year. One thing this app offers, in addition, is a week view alongside the traditional day view for your classes.
Like other timetable apps on this list, you can add tasks and exams which will appear in a separate tasks section. You can make use of reminders and add additional notes to your tasks as well.
Only certain timetable apps have the level of customization that this one provides. The app lets you pick the default view whenever you open it, choose between a dark and a light theme, and even tinker with the widget’s transparency.
You’ll also get notified for classes without the need to purchase a premium version, while Automute is an ingenious feature that silents any reminders within the app whilst you’re in a class. Our only letdown with this app is the lack of any backup and restore functionality. Other than this minor inconvenience, the ad-free timetable experience is quite wonderful.

4. My Classes
The Play Store page for My Classes describes it as the ultimate tool for students, and we tend to agree. The app brings a personal touch to the rather boring process of creating and managing a weekly schedule for your classes.
In the app, you can add subjects and assign teachers to each of them. These subjects can then be added to a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly schedule. The dashboard does a good job of displaying your upcoming tasks and classes. We also found the expressions on the emojis for the different days of the week to be quite hilarious.
My Classes gives you the most control over creating and customizing tasks, doubling as a great to-do list app. Not only can you add a subject and description, but you get to pick dos and don’ts, add chapters, and even manage sub-tasks for bigger projects that you can individually tick off.
The free version of the app has unapologetically huge ads, although they’re not the annoying popup kind. You also only get to add and manage up to two timetables. To unlock unlimited timetable slots, add widgets, and get rid of all ads, the pro student pack holds good value.

Those looking for a timetable app that’s not specific to students will cherish every bit of TimeTune. This app makes use of a time block format to plan your day. Although there’s nothing stopping you from using TimeTune as a timetable app for your classes, it works best as a general multipurpose schedule planner.
The way you get around creating a schedule is a tad bit different in TimeTune. You will first need to create a Template, in which you can use tags to outline your day. This template can then be used to fill a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. This way, you can easily add repeating patterns to your calendar without having to manually change the tiny details of your schedule.
TimeTune has an extensive list of icons and colors that you can use to create tags. This helps you recognize them with ease. The premium version of the app unlocks more theme options, eliminates ads, allows for time tracking, and enables automatic backups.
However, we found the ads to be quite unobtrusive while using the app, and you can still create manual backups with the free version of TimeTune.

Concluding the list, we have an app that’s similar in principle to TimeTune, but one that’s a little easier to understand for those digitally planning a schedule for the first time. TimeBloc has an uncomplicated timeline view of all your tasks for the day. You can customize these tasks with tags and icons.
Routines help you manage more than one type of timetable and make it easier for you to repeat days involving the same list of tasks. The premium version of the app comes with statistics and unlimited routines.
While we really adore the simple timeline view of TimeBloc, the app feels quite sluggish despite being designed quite nicely.
