[prMac.com] San Diego, CA - Eddy Martinez, media contact of FurrySoft, is excited to announce that iPhone and iPod Touch users can predict their GPA as they progress through their college years. College students predict GPA by entering cumulative GPA, grade points, current term courses and predicted letter grade. College GPA does the rest to calculate predicted cumulative GPA.
Martinez states, "College GPA Calculator is a must for college students trying to predict their future GPA. If your goal is to graduate Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude or Summa Cum Laude, then College GPA allows you to plug in anticipated grades for future terms, then performs the GPA calculation for you. Not sure what will happen to your GPA if you get a "C" in Organic Chemistry? Plug in your best case and worst case grade scenarios and see what will happen! In addition, the GPA calculator is a great tool for students on probation or disqualification that need to know the minimum grades they must achieve to reach a 2.0 or higher."
The application "College GPA", available on the iTunes Music Store for purchase, is unique to the iPhone and iPod Touch and is the first of it's kind to deliver predictive GPA results for the college student. Users are not required to visit a web page and all data is saved for later input as the student progresses through each term.
He continues "We wanted the student to have the best experience possible when using College GPA by organizing the information in a concise and predictable manner in accordance to Apple's human user interface guidelines. Once you enter the information into College GPA, it will be stored and saved for you, making modifications or changes to potential grades easy and convenient."
Cumulative GPA and grade points from previous years are entered as a baseline calculation. Next the student will enter the current term. Each current course is entered individually along with the student's predicted letter grade to see future changes to their cumulative GPA. If the student sees room for improvement, they can adjust the letter grade for a specific course and view the impact to the overall GPA.
Martinez adds, "Being able to adjust your letter grade shows the student what is needed in order to a retain scholarships, meet transfer requirements or stay out of the dean's office." The College GPA application allows you to turn off courses for transfer students when the desired college does not accept a particular course. "This is a very important feature to turn classes on and off in the GPA calculations. Some students are surprised to learn not every class transfers to every college. This could jeopardize their career before they even have the chance to be accepted because the transfer GPA did not meet requirements."
Students like to be in control of their future. College GPA allows the student to make informed decisions about which course to dedicate the correct amount of time to.
FurrySoft's College GPA numerous features include GPA calculation, GPA prediction, disable non-transferable courses, stored data, requires no internet or wireless access and can work from a user inputted cumulative GPA or with each and every course inputted by the user. It's simple interface will give needed information to the student in about a minute. "The academic adviser, students and developer worked together to make it as easy as possible and still deliver the experience academic counselors provide on campus." Martinez continues, "College GPA does all the work for you."
There are three basic steps: 1) Enter cumulative data for previous terms. 2) Enter the current term name. 3) Enter the courses under the current term with the predicted grade to see the future cumulative GPA.
iPhone and iPod Touch owners can download the "College GPA" application at the iTunes Music Store.
