iStudiez Pro app

Homework planning is at iStudiez Pro’s core, but it goes beyond most planning apps with full-featured scheduling for homework, classes, work and even your social life.

iStudiez Pro allows you to track your grades and comes with a GPA calculator to help you stay on top of your studies. It also lets you set class dates, times, locations and professor names. Live tiles, notifications and alarms remind you about assignment due dates, upcoming classes and other events.

With a paid subscription, the platform automatically syncs between devices – iOS, Mac and Windows – and can be synced with Google calendar as well as other third-party calendar apps. You can also share your schedule with friends and classmates.

I’m a senior in university and I’ve been using my iPad Pro for most of my schoolwork for three semesters at this point, and this app is the first planning app that I have really enjoyed using. Flipping through four separate twelve page syllabi three times a day? Not anymore, suckers!” – ALEXBOBALEXXXXX via the Apple App Store

3. My Study Life

Free | iOS | Android | Chrome | Online

My Study Life app

My Study Life features a student-centric system designed to replace paper planners and minimize time spent scheduling so you can devote more time to studying.

Though traditional task scheduling is included, one of the app’s primary benefits is the ability to set repeating and rotating daily and weekly timetables. That means you can input classes just once to fill out your entire schedule. You can also limit classes to semesters with custom start and end dates, plus block off holidays, vacations and other breaks in your schedule.

The best part? My Study Life is 100% free. The app has a 4.7-star rating on the Apple App Store and 4.4 stars on Google Play, where a common complaint is that it only shows upcoming assignments and exams for the current week.

“I got A’s bc of this app! This app saved my life and my GPA during a crazy semester. It’s so intuitive to use. I love the color coding. I love the percentage completion. That was so motivating to get things done for a visual person like me.” – mmmoxielady via the Apple App Store

iHomework 2 app

iHomework 2 is more than a homework planner app – it actively encourages you to stay on task and get your homework done on time.

Rather than simply enter an assignment’s due date, you can also enter your planned start and completion dates. The app will remind you when to start. You can also set sub-tasks for each assignment and track your progress to ensure you’re on schedule for your completion date.

The app lets you group and tag assignments, such as for a specific subject, plus track grades with customizable grading scales and weights.

6. Chipper

Free | Optional Career Coaching: $50 – $100 | iOS | Android

Chipper app

If you’ve ever felt like your homework assignments are pointless, Chipper might inspire the motivation you need to get stuff done on time.

It’s like other homework planning apps in that you can set your schedule, create tasks and receive reminders, but with one major difference: each assignment and study task is automatically assigned a monetary value that projects how completing it will impact your future earnings.

Of course, it’s not an exact science and all “earnings” are virtual, but visualizing how seemingly-mundane homework assignments contribute to your future success could help end chronic procrastination.

Chipper is free for Android and iOS and offers optional in-app career coaching services ranging from $50 to $100. It has a 4.7-star rating on the Apple App Store and 4.4 stars on Google Play.

Some students say they wish the app had more options for repeating events (like classes scheduled every other day), and the developer intends to add these in the future.

“Best app I’ve found to keep me organized. Love that it ‘pays’ you, and you can set each individual homework assignment. Everything is color coordinated for each class, and their study timer has built in breaks!!! Only downside is that it takes a while to input all your assignments for each class (but that can’t really be helped at all).” – Mia Johnson via Google Play

7. Egenda

Free | iOS | Android

Egenda app

Egenda offers a simple interface that makes it easy to view homework assignments, due dates and overdue tasks.

Egenda is free for iOS and Android. It has a 4.7-star rating on the Apple App Store and 4.5 stars on Google Play. Some users have reported issues with notifications.

“I’ve hopped back and forth (between) planners and different homework apps but never stuck with one more than a couple of months because it was ok but not good enough. This app however is a lot easier to use, notifies me how many assignments are due the next day, it lets me view my assignments as a whole or individually.” – MysteryGaming101 on the Apple App Store

8. School Planner

Free | Android

School Planner app

School Planner is designed with a simplified user interface for fast, intuitive homework planning. Enter your homework assignments, classes, exams and due dates; then, view them in a color-coded daily agenda, weekly timetable or monthly calendar.

In addition to homework planning, the app also features reminders, grade tracking with GPA calculations, instructor contact information, Google Drive backups, notes and lecture recording.

School Planner is free with in-app purchases for Android, though it’s not immediately clear what the in-app purchases are for. It has a 4.6-star rating on Google Play, and some reviewers say they wish timetables were more flexible.

“I get so many tests and assignments every week, it gets hard to keep up, but School Planner has helped me stay on top of everything, and all the other features like adding your grades (marks) has helped keep me motivated.” – Kerynn Fleetwood via Google Play
