There’s no shortage of task managers or calendars on iOS, but Schooly takes a slightly different approach by tailoring the app to students. Whether college or high school, Schooly brings many different features together into one, well-designed app. Let’s talk about why I like it so much, and why I’m a bit bitter I never got to use this while I was still working on my degree.
Schooly was developed after lots of research and input from students throughout varying stages of schooling. College and high school yes, but middle schoolers too. It’s ability to prove useful throughout many levels of academic progress means you’ll be able to use Schooly for years.
You can input your current class schedule so that way you always know what class is upcoming and where it’s located. But it supports multiple schedules so you can jump between different ones and add new ones with each semester. Classes can be color-coded on your schedule making it easier to visually discern which class is next.
A basic to-do app can help with keeping track of classwork but Schooly is designed for actual assignments — as well as your typical to-dos. Exams can be tracked in the app too, with appropriate reminders for all of them.
While in high school, I never much worried about attendance. It was just assumed I was going to school each day. But with college, there were certainly times when I didn’t feel like going. Flexing that newfound responsibility! Schooly can track your attendance for you so if you classes have minimum attendance rates, you won’t fall behind.
The app also takes advantage of many iOS features. It supports Focus modes that debuted iniOS 15 so that way you don’t get unnecessary notifications and you do get notifications while in a your configured “class time” focus. It also supports widgets. Widgets can show your upcoming classes or your upcoming tasks, without ever having to open the app.
I may be too old for Schooly, but for anyone else still grinding through, this beautiful app can make it just slightly easier.
But enough about other people's apps.
