What's New

Version 3.2.6: Over the last few weeks, I've posted a couple separate versions of Assignment Planner to fix some bugs. The first release was to fix a bug in the calendar view, since February of this year only has four calendar weeks in it. This release introduced a couple new issues, due to a new development environment, so 2.3.5 and 2.3.6 have been released to fix these errors. I believe that everything more...

Version 3.x crashes upon launch.

I've purchase a license for version 2.x but installing the latest 2.x version rejects my license.

All attempts to contact the author is met with silence.

From my lack of response, I don't think the author has any serious interest in supporting this software.

Version 3.2.6

Current Version: 3.2.6

Pros: This app is very organizational. There's a place where you can put down your tasks, assignments, a calender (that you can only export to ical and textedit but not vice versa), you can distinguish projects from assignments, a basic GPA calculator, a textbook input where you can put down everything down about it, a professor information input (but they have to be in your address book, I find that a pain). And for $8 it's pretty good. Plus the $4 online syncing for every 6 months, you're paying for bandwidth so it makes sense. It gets your job done and keeps you very organized. And you can configure your settings and text fields so only shows information to your liking especially when you're inputting courses or textbook information.

Cons: Every time I open the app, it has problems syncing online. I have to go through preferences and sync it myself. It's not a huge problem however. For a planner that does this much maybe $8 is worth it, but keep in mind if you want it to sync you have to pay $8 ($4 for every 6 months) for you mobile-ipod touch on the go. Most of us get tired of carry our laptops everywhere, so it would make sense for this feature to be added. But you're paying more, so is it all really worth it? I don't recommend this app for long term use.

There's an iphone/ipod app called "iHomework" it's only 2 bucks and syncs over a wifi network. (and that folks, is free). There's color coding for every assignment ranging from Test, Quiz, Reading, etc. There's an advanced grading option where you can input percentages such as Homework, Quizzes, Tests to calculate your grade quickly and painlessly. You can export your calender to iCal.

The difference is there's no textbook input but it does everything Assignment Planner can do but it's way cheaper in the long run. The Mac Desktop App itself is free, but if you want to edit your tasks and reminders on the go it's a measly 2 dollars.


I know I shouldn't be reviewing two products but if you want more bang for your buck I would just stay away from this application if you really want to use this as a phone AND Mac friendly application.
I feel ripped off and to those of you reading my review might as well go check it out. They both do a lot but bottom line is why pay for something X4 as much when "iHomework" does that and more?

Umm...Schoolhouse is free and wayyyy better.

Schoolhouse IS nice if it doesn't eat your assignments (which it's done to me 3 times), whereas Assignment Planner works reliably. $8.00 versus loosing all your inputted info (or grabbing from backup)... priceless.


i can't say i have ever experienced it eat MY assignments to I'll be sticking with Schoolhouse thanks


I haven't tried Assignment Planner but probably will have to as Schoolhouse isn't working on my Macbook Pro. It crashes right off the bat, before it even loads up. Talk about annoying--and useless. It worked great last semester and was really helpful in keeping on top of everything, so I'm bummed that it has stopped working. Anyway, I need a decent alternative, maybe Assignment Planner is it. That's just my 2 cents.

Not a bad piece of software, it's easy to manage school stuff with. I was looking for something to manage my homework at the beginning of the semester, and this is a good option.

Things I think are well done:

The filtering by course is really easy to use and is a quick way to find assignments.

The GPA and Finals calculator is nice, and I would use it, except that it doesn't include support for GPAs that are not 4.0-based.

The program as a whole feels solid and performs well.

Things I think could use some work:

Only one file can be added to an item, which for me feels incomplete because I often have multiple PDFs and documents that go with an assignment.

Don't really understand if the notes feature is for lecture notes, as it doesn't have any ability for rich text or adding pictures or anything.

I like the calendar view, it allows for easy viewing of what is coming up, but it seems to lock up on me whenever I try to drag assignments between dates. If I switch to list view and back again, it is useable again.

The dashboard widget is nice but it isn't quite useable since it doesn't allow checking-off when an assignment is done, you have to launch the application to edit anything.

After trying this out, I think I will stick with my original choice, which is Schoolhouse 2 (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/21783). It has more features and is completely FREE. For a college student that's a godsend.

The new version (2.0) rocks!

It's great to know that this developer is willing to help with any problems, and the program has really been advanced and polished since the first version I used. It's easy to manage all my courses' homework; I used this program a little bit in high school, and it also works great for my college.

If you need to organize your assignments, this is THE program to do it (and the price is negligable, even for a college student!). Try it out before you buy it; you won't be disappointed.

Buggy, buggy, buggy.

Not ready fro prime-time. Event hough it is "free" it is not reliable enough to use for tracking my college coursework.

That being said, I think there is some decent promise here..especially since there is practically no software in this genre.

1.3's new features are well-worth checking out! I'm glad the developer added importing, iCal export, and many other useful features! The developer is definitely open to suggestions - let him know what you want!

I have a serious complaint. (It's the only one I could come up with.) Next to Mail, Address Book, iCal, TextEdit and AppleWorks in the Dock, Assignment Planner's icon is flipped horizontally.

Fantastic app. I use it for managing projects at work.

This is a really cool app, I attending NMSU and this program really helps me to organize my class assignments. It is really nice not to have to sort through sylabus after sylabus trying to find an assignment, now it is all in one easy to access place, although it could be made easier. I am excited to see what improvements will be made in the future.
