Useful Review:

“I am currently a sophomore in college and have been using this app since my sophomore year in high school. I cannot even imagine how i would stay organized without it. It is so easy to see what assignments need to be turned in, and i can also see my schedule day by day. I also upload pictures of needed pages in my textbook so i do not have to bring it home with me. The schools i have not had teachers that use the app to post assignments and it has still been very beneficial to me. you can fully use the app for free, but i choose to pay the annual fee which is very affordable at around just $5 i believe. You can also sync your classes and assignments to your iCloud calendar so it is all visible on your iPhone. everything synchronizes easily between my devices and can even be accessed online from a school computer. In college i have gone to complete paperless work, where i have all my textbooks and notes on my iPad, and when i need to turn in an assignment i just print it off after completing it on my iPad. This app really helps with that where i can easily track all assignments that i have due right on my iPad, along with my notes and textbooks. I tried multiple different homework tracking apps and this is by far the best on the market.”

Useful Review:

“I have been so happy with the Toolbox. It is full of such a wide variety of templates for nearly anything I would need to use for both work and personal use. The templates have great graphics and pictures that can be used directly, or are set up to be placeholders to use with your own pictures (which I usually do when I customize one of the designs). I really like the infographics and elements, as it gives me great ideas for how to present in a visual a particular concept or idea. I think I use the Toolbox for this more than anything, as I am often trying to find great visual ways to communicate some complex ideas, and the examples that they have for data representations are particularly useful. And, I love that they keep adding content that I can freely download.”
