Ipad App? - I love this App and have been using it since February 2011. The added ability to calculate my grade is awesome! I just wish there was a way to have this app on my ipad. I am using the Ipad more often since I have electronic books on it and would love to be able to at least access if not input data for this app on the go. Great Job, just needs to be a little more flexible! :)
Used to like it, now I hate it. - I spent 1 1/2 hours entering all my assignmnets last semester and none of it saved. Now I am getting an error each time I open it on both of my computers and it still won't save. Thanks for wasting my time schoolhouse, I guess I'll stick to iStudiez Pro.

I love it, but it has some issues …. - I own all the college apps for Mac and iOS. Schoolhouse is my favorite. Its simple to use, and puts everything in one view, or I can break it down by class, semester, etc. It is also the only app that can calculate grades accurately, including both extra credit and work not counted (none of the others can handle Extra Credit). However, it is missing the ability to list locations (my school is split up into 5 campuses that are miles apart), and instructor information (it'd be nice to be able to email an instructor from the app, or at least look up their phone number or office location). Most annoyingly though, the iCloud sync doesn't work at all. I emailed the developer, and weeks later got a reply, which didn't resolve the issue. I've emailed back 5 times now over two months, but not a word in response. iCloud sync isn't really a deal breaker for me, but for an app that hasn't been updated in 7 months, I worry about how long I'll be waiting for improvements, or even a bug fix. Its a shame to see this excellent software being ignored, as it really is the one with the most potential.
Great program but crashes in OSX Lion - This program looks to be very promising. I set up my schedule for this coming up semester, but when I tried to "define a kind of task for the course" it crashed on me. I've tried it numerous times. Other than that the app is top notch. I love being able to keep organized for classes, homework, tests, and the like.
Don't forget 2 star reviews before you buy. - The app itself is great but it will take alot of time to get use to and explore it's functions, therefore, I recommend getting this app during break. Once you got the hang of it, this app will definitely come in handy if you have alot of homework and projects. However (not sure if this happens to everyone ), Schoolhouse has some weird crashes. Such as when I enter the number of % in the weighted grading bar, for example, homework counts as 15% of my grade, I enter 15%, but when I enter the number and press ok, it crashed. It told me it sent a report to Apple but I highly doubt they will fix it. For that reason I currently do not trust this app and it's functions, but if nothing happens do you, then you should be grateful and enjoy.
Best thing I've ever bought for school! - This app is the most helpful resource that I've ever purchased for my education. It lets me keep track of not only all of my assignments (either by individual class or all classes together, and then in either list mode or calendar mode) but it also tracks my grades. It's super-helpful when it comes to knowing which assignments are most pressing as it allows me to set the priority for each one. That, in conjunction with the calendar mode, is the best part of this app because it helps me manage my time with respect to the urgency of each assignment at any given moment. The only thing I could possibly ask for is a matching iOS app.
Broken app - This was a good app at some point, but then the developer moved on to work for Apple Inc and gave the responsibilities to someone who doesn't know what they're doing. You can go to their Twitter and read all about their inane ramblings -- Schoolhouse is obviously not a priority for them, and I'm sure Logan does not want his name attached anymore. So now we have an app that is behind the times in terms of looks and broken syncing when it was the best thing around before. It's sad. Don't waste your money on this.
