Love this app!! Much better than still other planners I've tried, reminders are useful without being annoying, and the live time is exactly what I wanted! Would like to see some lock screen support for class schedule and/or homework, having it universal on Windows 10 is great as well!!

Great Product!

Power Planner is a great product for students looking to advance/improve themselves in the classroom. The online planner part of the app makes it easy for students to keep track of their due dates and class times. The interface also helps to keep the user responsible by sending notifications of when upcoming assignments are close to due. Although the overall performance and speed is great, the category "grades" seems to be the worst section of the app because of the difficulty of having to enter every grade manually. Overall, this app is easy to learn and edit, and helps to give the user an enhanced experience. Definitely would recommend to a friend!

I am a college student taking a full load of classes. I just found this app after the semester is almost over, but it is definitely worth it. The calendar with color coding is amazing. Being able to input the grades I've received and seeing a running calculation of GPA is great, too. I use a handwritten calendar for daily assignments and usual things, but I have a tendency to forget what's coming up for the rest of the week so this calendar having an upcoming view is beneficial. There are two drawbacks for me. 1) I have to manually put in each of the assignments' due dates and exam dates. It would be nice if we could import them from a PDF or something. 2) While the initial app is free, there was no mention (that I saw) of there being a $1.99 charge for the full version of the app. (If you don't pay to upgrade, you can only input 5 grades.) Of course, it's definitely worth it to pay $2, but it would have been nice to have a warning.

Great Functionality and Tracks Grades Properly

I have an iPad, an android phone and a Windows computer, so I have viewed numerous apps across multiple systems for school assignment tracking and grade management. This is the best I have found and not only is the functionality perfect, it also is aesthetically pleasing. Great jo.

Ugh! The new update!

For some reason, this update has zoomed in making the agenda, calendar, ect, bigger making it harder to view multiple things at once. Also, something useful that was taken away was the day when choosing a due date. In other words, over the number of that day, it would display the actual day; it no longer has this feature. I am a bit unhappy, if they changes were made to accommodate this, then it would be better.

Hey Tino, The "everything is too big" issue is caused by Windows 10 - there is nothing I can do about it. You'll notice other Windows 10 apps like Calendar, Mail, and Twitter, appear equally as large on your PC. Windows 8.1 apps were incorrectly not scaling up - that's why when Power Planner updated to Windows 10, everything got "bigger", even though this is actually the correct behavior. To make everything on your PC smaller, you need to change your display's scaling settings. Open Start and launch "Display settings", and then use the "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" slider to choose a setting that works best for you. As for the due date picker - sorry about that, I'm working on adding that back! Thanks, Andrew

The new updates for this app really improve the aesthetic feel of the app. One thing to keep your eyes on though, is the games and apps devices connected to your Microsoft account. If you have to many on there, this app will not open, so just keep an eye on it.

Great Electronic Planner + Organizer

This app has made me so much more organized, and I use this app on my windows tablet at school and on my home computer. I love how it syncs between devices, and how Andrew is so dedicated with updates! Thx for helping me become more organized.

Great App!

This app is very useful and helps me keep track of my work, especially since it is synced between my phone and computer. I just have to recommend that there be a way to set up alerts.

Great for staying on track!

This app is great if you want to keep track of your classes, assignments, tests, and even grades! I just wish that they had better options when it comes to setting reminders. I think it would make more sense to set reminders for specific assignments.

Some things need to be added!

Reminders would be awesome so that it would alarm when you assign one. Sometimes I don't even open this app except to list down homework. But it'd be awesome to have reminders to do projects and the like
