Android App Pre-review: myHomework Student Planner

Here’s another unsolicited review of an Android app.

At the beginning of the summer semester, I did a review on some apps I was going to try out for school.  One of them was a homework tracking app.  That particular app, in action, turned out out to be so convoluted and difficult to use that I ended up uninstalling it.  It was getting to the point where I was beginning to considering learning to code to just design my own app to get exactly what I was looking for.  I want:

  • To track my classes
  • To track my homework
  • A widget to go along with my calendar widget
  • The ability to see what’s coming up, not just what’s do on one day

I don’t want to have to dig to find out what’s coming up in class.  I need something that shows me what’s coming up when, what’s overdue, etc.  Also, it can’t be complicated to use.  It’s a planner, not astrophysics.  Enter myHomework Student Planner, free from the Google Play store.

This will be my second attempt at using an effective digital planner on my Samsung S4 running KitKat.

I downloaded it and got it set up.  It gives you three options for how to enter your classes, whether it’s by class period, time block, and I think the third is by color?  It has a big widget (4×2) that fits right under my calendar widget – I had to sacrifice my big huge clock but hey, we do what we must.  It can sync between a web version, tablet, phone and Win8 app versions so you’ll have your homework listing wherever you go.  It has notifications for things that are coming up or are late.

How I didn’t notice this app the first time around I have no idea, but I’m really looking forward to giving it a test run when the semester starts in two weeks.  Hopefully this one out-performs the previous one I tried.  I’ll keep you posted!
