Hello all,

one of my teachers would like to replace her black planning folder with an iPad app. She is looking for something that has the year view and individual days and lets her edit both - e.g. mark weeks of the term on the year view ("book week" or "camp" etc.) and put her daily planning into the day view. I hope this makes sense! She has looked around and not found anything suitable yet - any primary teacher out there who has sucessfully replaced their black folder? My teacher is happy to pay for the app but it's better to know beforehand if its worth it.

Many thanks in advance!

    I have used Planbook (hellmansoft) for the last 5 years or so. I love it!  Jeff Hellman has been very responsive over the years to include features teachers have asked for. He is  a teacher in the US (secondary). He has listened to us primary teachers and made it just as useful for all. He has made iPad app. Syncs well with Mac application but I have found you do need to close your planbook each time you finish using it or you will get a conflicted copy on other device. Good addition this year has been the ability when using planbook on OS 10.8 you can browse previous versions.
