iStudiez Pro is the ultimate organizational app for students, designed with busy middle school, high school, and college schedules in mind.
It’s not easy being a student, laden down with hundreds of responsibilities, nightly homework, club meetings, band practices, group projects, lectures, labs, and more. There’s a lot to keep track of, and iStudiez Pro can help you streamline your life by streamlining your busy schedule.
iStudiez Pro uses an attractive, easy to read calendar style layout to organize all of your information. When you open the app, you’ll find your class information on the left, and your assignments in a handy list on the right. There’s a daily view and a weekly view, so you can see, in a glance, what you have going on for the entire week.
Each semester, or school year, you will enter your class information using the planner that can be accessed at the top right of the screen. You’ll enter class names, times, teachers, and days. For classes that have two components, such as a lecture or lab, you can enter both in the same field.
The app can handle all kinds of schedules, which is where it really outshines other organizational apps. While most schools have classic every day style classes, there are schools that run classes on alternating weeks, or a rotating or block schedule. iStudiez Pro has no problem with even the most complicated class schedules.
In addition to entering general information about your classes, you can also add in course details and instructor information, including office hours, phone number, and email address. It’s fantastic to be able to have all of that information right at your fingertips when you happen to need it.
Every class is given a color of your choice, so you can easily find it on your daily and weekly schedules. There are also a set of icons that you can assign to each type of class, such as lab, lecture, seminar, and study group. You can also create your own class type, which allows you to add in extracurricular activities like club meetings and practices.
In addition to class information, there’s also a detailed homework section (also accessed at the top right of the screen) where you can enter all of your homework assignments and projects. You can also add homework assignments and test dates directly into your main schedule book.
Your homework is displayed on the assignments page, which is organized by day. When you finish an assignment, you will be able to check it off, and the app will let you know everything that’s due on a particular day. The homework section is great because you can split major projects and assignments into smaller portions, and get reminders to get that part of the project done, which means less stress and more free time.
Homework can be organized in several ways, by due date, course, or priority, which is a great feature that allows you to get the ultra important things done right away.
The app has an extensive settings menu, so you can customize everything to your exact liking. You can add your iOS calendar into the app, add in holidays and working days, add in a section to help you keep track of your grades, and sync iStudiez Pro data between all of your devices.
iStudiez Pro is an amazing app that every student with an iPad should have access to. It makes organizing class schedules, homework, and after school activities so much easier, and a great organizational system is a major part of being successful in school.
What I liked: I’m jealous that students today have access to an app like this. I had to deal with plain old paper organizers, which are far inferior to this app. It essentially does everything that you need it to do – tracking homework, projects, and class times.
What I didn’t like: I think this app could do with an additional section for entering other extracurricular activities. You can add things to the calendar, but it’s not as simple as entering classes and homework.
To buy or not to buy: Priced at just $0.99 right now, this app is a steal. Even at its regular price of $2.99, iStudiez Pro is a great deal.
