[prMac.com] Asten, The Netherlands - RoJaSoft today is pleased to announce the release of proSchool 1.0, their new app for iPhone and iPod touch. proSchool is a school calendar, based on a class schedule for the iPhone. It allows you to keep track of all your homework, tests, grades, subjects, etc. proSchool has a unique user interface, which works very fast and intuitive. Users can create a class schedule very easy and fast. It won't take more than five minutes.
When the class schedule is created, users can start using the calendar. Schedule items will show in grey. Adding a calendar item won't take more than two taps. The report card keeps track of all the grades. It automatically calculates averages based on weight of each grade. The calendar has four views: Day, week, month and details view. proSchool fully supports rotation of device. Rotating in the month view will bring up the week view.
The month view shows one month. Above is the calendar of the current month. Homework, etc. will show as a dot on a day. Below it shows the homework for the selected day. Going to the next or previous month, can be done with a swipe up or down. The week view shows one week. It overviews all the homework for a week. Scrolling up and down will show the whole day. Going to the next or previous week, can be done with one swipe. The day view shows all the homework for one day.
proSchool allows you to add subjects. Information for subjects include a name, a teacher a building and a room. Adding a picture to a subject is also possible. You can choose from a variety of pictures. It's possible to override this data in the class schedule and the calendar. So it works very flexible. That is useful when you have different teachers for a subject on different days.
Creating a class schedule is very easy. First select the day and than add a schedule item. Just choose a subject and a start and end time. proSchool will suggest times. Which will help you creating the schedule faster. A schedule can consist of one or two weeks. Calculating averages is done using weight and a grade table. Every grade has a value assigned to. E.g. the value for "A" would be 4.0. It is possible to change this table when that's in necessary.
