Studying can be messy. You’ve got a lot of different classes, subjects and tasks and it’s not always easy to keep track of it all. I know, I know, your weekend finally started and you don’t want to think about school, but trust me, this app will get your school life organized.
School Manager wants to be your school agenda, but on your phone. Just like a normal school agenda, you can keep track of you grades, tasks and exams. The app is well designed and uses a TabView to navigate from the grades, tasks or exams submenus. A swipe from the left reveals the navigation drawer, where you can navigate to the Timetable menu and a Semesters menu.
Adding a task or exams is straightforward and you get a nice overview of your completed tasks or exams. Completing an exam will prompt you to add a grade. Here’s where it gets a little weird, because you add a grade via a slider, which seems a little off. You can give each grade a value and at the grades submenu you get a nice overview of all your grades per subject.
Making a Timetable is also very painless. Adding a lesson is a matter of seconds and you can give each subject a different color, so that each subject stands out. School Manager also has a cool discarding animation. The Timetable gives a clear overview of your schedule and scrolling between days is super smooth.
If you want to have access to the Semesters menu you have to upgrade to the pro version of the app, this will also remove the ads. It’s a small price and you’re supporting the developer, even though the ads aren’t really that annoying.
The app also comes with two widgets, one to display all tasks and exams for the coming days and the other one for your schedule. The widgets are good looking, with a Roboto font and transparency all over.
School Manager is a great, feature rich app, in an intuitive package. Adding tasks, exams and timetables is seemless. The app Golden Cydia remembers all your subjects, so you only have to add them once. It gives you a nice overview of your grades, so you know which subjects deserve a little more attention. School Manager is an awesome replacement for your physical school agenda.
