There are apps that will handle all the details for you. I've used (sort of...) just a deck of cards with tunes on each card. Pull a few off the top of the deck each day. If I can remember if play it well, it goes to the bottom of the deck. If I can't it goes back on the top, so I'll play it again tomorrow. Sort of works as long as I actually do it.
Yes I just bought a box of index cards to do just that , forgetting stuff has become an issue with me, I have a tendency to focus my practice time on stuff I can't do yet while the stuff I could do fades away, time will tell if I stay disciplined enough to keep it up.
