iHomework Gets Students Organized

While I was searching around for cool "apps" the other day (this has become a hobby of mine),  I came across iHomework for iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.  After downloading and playing with it a bit, it made me want to go back to school just so I could use it for my classes!  This app has it all.  No need to carry around paper and pencil to keep track of your assignments, homework, readings, and tasks.  It also allows you to enter your course schedules and teacher information for easy reference.  The app also lets you put in your assignment grades so that you can track your overall course progress.  Then it can sync all information to your computer whether it be a Mac or PC.  Students, Teachers, Parents and guardians will love this app!  Of course, not every student has an "i" device though many students do.  For the ones that do, this is an exceptional app and is rated overall as 4 out of 5 stars in the App Store. 

When students are organized with assignments, due dates and other resources, they are more likely to do well in school.  This app will keep all the those little pieces of paper where they have written their assignments off of the floor of their locker and into a device where they can easily find the information that they need. 

Here is an instructional video on how to use the iHomework app and you can follow them on Facebook as well.  They have a website where you can get more information.

If you currently use this app or are trying it now, please leave a comment and let everyone know how it has worked for you.

    Great App! I wish we had devices and helpful apps like this when I was in school. I seemed to always be losing my assignments and I could never keep accurate track of my grades throughout each term.

    I hope that teachers embrace these sorts of uses for mobile devices in the classroom and I hope students utilize apps like this to streamline their workflow and greenup the classrooms by working as paperless as possible.
