The school year is coming and that means southeast Michigan kids will be back to juggling classwork with extracurricular activities, part-time jobs and family functions before they know it.
Instead of opting for a paper planner to track those assignments and tasks this year, students can download a homework app to keep tabs on their classes, assignments, tests, social stuff and more.
Not sure which homework app is worth downloading? We’re here to help. Take a peek at these top-rated homework apps.
My Study Life
Track more than just homework with this free app, which is available to download on iPhone, Android, Windows 8 and Windows Phone. My Study Life is both a calendar and to-do list – plus it stores data in the cloud and allows you to sync with other devices.
It supports weekly and daily rotation schedules and lets you specify how much of a task is completed (if you’re not totally ready to check something off your virtual to-do list).
A dashboard gives you an overview of your entire day and even highlights if an incomplete task is due soon. It has reminders so you won’t lose track of a test or assignment.
Note taking is a big part of the day-to-day life of a student, especially older kids. With Evernote, kids can take notes, then organize, store and even share them with others. For those collaborative projects, create checklists to share with fellow students, too.
This free app is offered to both Android and iOS users and allows you to sync with your phone, tablet and computer.
Students can enter their assignments, then sort by due date, priority, class and whether or not an assignment is complete. Available for iPhone, Class Manager lets you set reminders of when homework is due and get homework help in things like chemistry and math.
Weekly, monthly and list views are offered for class schedules and assignments — so you’re able to customize the view depending on how you prefer to see your schedule.
The Homework App
Customize the color of the dashboard with the Homework App, view repeating events, a weekly schedule, simple tasks and more.
Another option you can find in the App Store, Homework App adjusts automatically when you mark days off, helps students track their homework assignments and sends push notifications when an assignment is due.
It also syncs up to other devices and offers offline support. For college students, this app allows you to keep track of instructor office times and contact details.
