iStudiez Pro Legendary Planner

Keep track of every assignment

For anyone wanting an all-in-one solution for getting their life together while in school.

Being a student just might be the most hectic part of your life. With so many things to worry about all the time, not to mention happenings in whatever small fragment of a life you have left outside of school, you're going to need a lot of apps. A to-do list, a calendar, a grade calculator, a scheduling app, an agenda, a contacts app ... the list goes on and on. That's where iStudiez comes in to save the semester with an all-in-one solution that can do all of the above and more. By inputting information about your semester including courses you're taking, when class components are scheduled, assignments and their weights, grades, professor contact information, and more, the app will magically combine all of this information together to always give you an overview of what's going on today and in the future. Plus, it all syncs across iOS devices and with your Mac, which makes managing your life that much easier.

Why we love it

The iStudiez Pro app greatly reduces the number of apps you need to manage college life, and is very versatile in considering different schedule types and grading schemes. It can handle virtually anything you throw at it.
