Homework apps – Find the one that works for you!

Using Apps to stay organised at school:

Homework, assignments, tests and exams. It can all get a bit overwhelming at times, especially towards theend of term.

Here at Unity Studios, we know that our students work hard keeping track of everything throughout the year and we have many different tools to assist you with this. Using one of the apps below is just another option available, which may be more suited to some students or helpful to use in conjunction with existing tools.

  1. The Homework App

  2. myHomework Student Planner

  3. Class Timetable

  4. My Study Life

All four apps are simple to use and can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play store. You can buy an upgrade for each, which gives you access to features such as notifications and the ability to attach a photo to a task. I like this feature, as how many times are we rushing around trying to find the assignment before we can even start.

I have downloaded each app on my phone and had a quick play around. myHomework Student Planner seems great for younger students that just need help recording their timetable and assignments. My Study Life may be more helpful for Senior students as it has greater features and customisation. Everyone has their own way of keeping track of things, so the 4 apps are a good selection of what is available and it is just a matter of working out which one suits you best.

Happy organising!
