Love it, but please add this feature:

Grade scale of "pass/fail." I've taken a few classes simply for credit that don't affect my GPA, and would love to be able to add those into the app.

Fantastic! Needs a feature

Love this app so far. Very helpful features and I love everything about it so far. What would make it a full 5/5 star app is the added feature of choosing to cancel a class on a certain day or add in a single makeup day for a class. This happens often and I'd love to have that reflected in the app calendar. Otherwise fantastic!

add activities

I am really enjoying the ability to add homework, exams and classes. I would really like to be able to add activities, clubs, appointments, and work. It would be great to be able to use just one app instead of having to check several to see what I need to do each day in all aspects of my life instead of just school or even if I could just add school activities in addition to homework and exam. was going to purchase but I'm just not sure if this will work without those options.

This was honestly my favorite app. My first semester of college, i knew i needed a planner, so i found this one. It worked amazingly. I was on time, organized, and happy with the app. I come back for the second semester however, and it doesn't work whatsoever. I can't open it on my Surface Pro 3, it says i have the app, but i can't find it in my apps, and so i can't uninstall to reinstall it! Very frustrating considering what a great app it really is. If you fix it and let me get it back, i'd even buy the full version. Unfortunately, with it not even working, two stars is all it gets.

A lot of great features for a low price

Just got this app and I really like it. Very smooth interface and easy to use. Really like the grades feature as well as the extra capability the Premium version provides. I would really like to see is the ability to edit total grade percentages manually, and the ability to edit semester GPA's manually (ex. if I want to import data from a previous year but don't want to add all of the classes and grades). Finally, an iOS app would be great...

Hey Brandon, glad to hear you really like Power Planner! Manually overriding class and semester GPA's will be coming in a few months, at most 6 months. Unfortunately an iOS app isn't in my future.

Good app

Kinda good for free. could be more features, though. I guess it's workable. I go to school as a Middle schooler, at a school where I HAVE to have a computer. This helps me level out my time. Although, sometimes I will forget to put in stuff. It is good for $2. I have 2 ssemesters and it will caluate your GPA based on your GPA for a class and the credits. At my school, every class is 0.5 points a semester. The UI is pretty simple. Year here, year here. I would recommend this to anyone that needs to get organized, or really any student. I have to go write a report that the app reminded me to go do.

Exactly what I always wanted!

Just started using this. Normally planners on the computer do not work for me but this one is so amazing and easy to use but offers everything I need for school and work!

If in an update you can add an option to change the standard grading scale that would be awesome! Most professors at my school uses the +/- scale so I have to change each class to that individually to make the GPA correct. Otherwise love it! Also if eventually you made an Apple version for iPhones that'd be great. Thanks!

In the latest update, I added the ability to save a grade scale, so that you can quickly apply that grade scale to other classes. In the future, I plan to add a "default grade scale" setting, but that's out of scope right now. Also, in the future, I plan to make a web version (which would be mobile friendly), but I have no plans to make an iOS app. I'm focused on making the best homework planner for Windows PC's and Phones. I might release an Android version someday, but even that is unlikely. Thanks!!
