I just got my "Welcome Packet" for school this year and spent an hour or more wading through the calendar of Parents' Nights, festivals, and No School Days. How did our kids' school calendars get so darn complex? They need their own filofax (er..I mean iPhone app!).
One way to stay sane through it all is with this cool new NYC School Calendar app, which is designed to help parents and kids keep track of the important school dates. Designed by John Tran, a New York City public school teacher, the app works by integrating and syncing with an existing calendar so you don't have to input the school calendar your iPhone. John hopes that the app will also help teachers to plan their lessons, parents to plan their vacation, and work schedules easier, and students to be more organized and plan ahead so they can do well in school. Such noble goals -- a real teacher through and through!
So, no more -- "whoops! It's a half day?!" You won't have any more excuses when you forget to pick up your kid.
The FREE NYC School Calendar app is now available at the app store and it is compatible with the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, and will soon work for the Blackberry and Android smart phones.
