Entering university can be a dramatic change for people, because of how very different it is from previous educational stages. It can be difficult for students to adapt to their new environment because of the increased need for independent study at the university level. Students who fail to adapt to this environment often face problems with their studies. Such problems sometimes lead to stress and anxiety. One possible solution for this is good time management. The use of smartphone applications has increased over the last few years. A number of previously physical tools have been digitized into smartphone applications. These include calendars, timers and to-do lists. This has created a market for applications used as tools to facilitate daily life. For example, there are applications for managing a user’s personal finance, learning languages and planning the user’s day, among other tasks. However, there appears to be a shortage of applications intended to help students with their studies. This shortage points to a potential for an application that can assist students with planning their studies. The purpose of this project was to design a prototype for a time-management smartphone application to help students manage their time. With the aid of the prototyping model, different theories on time management and design guidelines, we were able to design a prototype application.
