I remember seeing a paid app called Class Schedule or something like to the effect that laid out your courses in different colors and such.

I can't think of anything that would be specifically for school or a class, but I have a couple of ideas.

For starters, the dictionary.com app could come in handy if you need a definition, spelling or a thesaurus. It's better than nothing if you need a quick definition and are not by your computer.

Also a task program like MyThings would come in handy to just keep things straight.

And lastly, a countdown app. Thats kind of a stretch, but you could put big projects and tests in there and have a countdown timer showing you have many days/weeks you have to work on it until it's due. Might help keep you from forgetting a paper or studying for a test.

Hopefully these might be helpful app ideas.

Check out Noborizaka.

It's a good tasks app that "levels you up" RPG style as you complete tasks. I like it for when I study and it helps me keep track of how long I have studied for.

Evernote is great as well (crashing problems aside) but I see you already have that in there :)

Thanks everyone for your feedback!

Seems like there are not that many school-specific apps yet but hopefully with Mango it will all explode :D

@rpm5101 for sure! LOL I prefer Plants vs. Zombies though :p
