Help Your First-Years Have a Strong First Semester
Watch how 👇
College is a lot more demanding than high school
They Overestimate how much time they have and Underestimate the time they need. They don’t plan and end up cutting corners.
They get stressed and their grades suffer
Poor time and workload management go hand in hand with stress, anxiety, and poor academic performance.

The best school planner out there. I have horrible ADHD, and simply cannot filter, prioritize, and plan the way Shovel’s algorithm does. My brain crashes just looking at a todo list. Shovel is the brain I wish I had. It guides me through planning based on how much time I have vs how many hours each task will need to be completed by the due date. I just select study time slots and fill them with task time.
I have exams next year and Shovel will save my life and help me get good grades. I have tried many study planners but they just make me angry because they are so bad. However, Shovel has made me happier than ever. Thank you, Shovel team!!!
If you suffer from bipolar 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 discovery of Shovel was a godsend. Thanks to Shovel, I can control every moment of my day and the planning of the studio has never been so perfect and fun. All my study material is organized precisely day by day, and my mind also benefits from this: I am more focused and motivated in studying.
Best planner everr. Simply put, the best planner I have ever used in my life.
So helpful and efficient. I love this planner. It is almost a combination of google calendar & calendar on your iPhone, but it is specifically for college. It helps me plan out and balance studying, work, and classes, as well as helping me see if I have time to go out.
I must say that Shovel is worth every penny. I like the ease of use and simple, clean design. This app should be mandatory for every college student.
Excellent app. This app is helping me a lot for time planner and concentration. Wow.
I found the best planner ever!
I cannot remember how I came across this but I am so glad I did! The layout is awesome and all my tasks are getting done because of it! It’s fantastic for college students like myself!
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.
Amazing idea and amazingly helpful.
Thank you so much for making the perfect app for college.
I’m so excited to kick off my new semester with the best planner for college. It takes into account how long an assignment will take which is what sets it apart for me. You can easily plan out your time more effectively so you can have more time for other things.
This app is really great it takes a while to set up but once set up, this app creates miracles. Can’t wait to start Spring Semester!
Hello, just so you know, I don’t really like to do feedback on apps but this one is different. Since I started college one year ago, I downloaded almost every planner on the Apple store but when I came across the shovel planner a few weeks ago, I found the best planner ever.
This is the greatest application planner.
It is ammazzinng. You can plan for the future, what you have to study, when and organize it. Loved this app! Great. Great!
This app is more like a system than just a regular app! It has become a crucial part of my school life. It is by far the best digital academic planner I have tried and used. It is most definitely a favorite and chart-topper for myself!
Built by students for students
We know what it feels like to struggle so we designed Shovel to help students avoid our pains.
BASED ON STUDENT EXPERIENCE
Our founder was a student-athlete who got overwhelmed
Petr was a hockey player at Harvard who didn’t manage his time and workload well and was frustrated that there was not tool to help him. Soon enough he had bad grades and declining mental health.
BUILT TO HELP
So he built the tool he wished he’d had
There was no tool to help Petr manage his time and workload, so he built a study planner to help the next generation of students avoid his pains.
A TOOL THAT CALLS TO ACTION
Why the name Shovel?
Shovel is a tool for getting things done. Simple and effective.
Shovel is an action. It’s about doing hard work, some of which may not be pleasant.
Shovel is a beginning. It’s groundbreaking. Starting something new and finishing something big, one scoop at a time.
