    Hey guys!

    (Apologies to the mods in advance if this is posted in the wrong sub-forum)

    Myself and several others have been tasked with finding an alternative to the old, cumbersome, expensive school planners currently being used by 6th form students in order to save costs - and so, I was wondering what alternatives the TSR community finds useful?
    Having spoken to some members of the year group, the two main functions of the planner are:
    a) A homework diary
    b) A place to see the timetable

    Any suggestions, ranging from smartphone planner apps to even some good old-fashioned pen and paper would be much appreciated!


    There's an app simply named 'The HW App' which is very aesthetically pleasing but also a useful tool - it allows you to colour code your subjects and input various tasks and tag it - for example I can input 'Case study' under green for Geography, in the notes I can write the title of the study and then I can 'tag' it as revision/homework (you make it all up yourself so very versatile.)

    For a timetable I use a similar, simple but effective app called 'Timetable' again this lets you colour code your subjects. Also allows up to a 4 week timetable (I think) and note space where I write my teacher/room for each class.

    These 2 are my go to but would love to find more
