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?
