The iPad Student Diary App that does so much more!

App4 Students replaces the traditional printed school diary and record book with a modern iPad App. One less book to carry around in a student’s bag, plus the capability for the school or teacher to push out updated information throughout the year are just some of the key benefits of this App. App4 Students is a modern App that goes way beyond the printed page.

Retaining the familiar look and feel of a printed and bound diary, the App’s interface is easy and inviting to use and encourages the student to chronicle their school days by providing for a daily journal entry and photo or image.

Other features include live timetable information, school notices, parent notes (to the school), teacher-set homework and assignments, and homework sign-off for parents. The school can also choose to execute agreement forms that must be signed by the student and/or the parents.

School Info Pages
All the important information normally found at the front of a printed school diary is now found under the Info Tab. Schools can provide and easily update this information through their App4 Schools System via .pdf documents or links to their internal or external web pages.

Help on Hand
The Help Tab provides links to all the help services that a school thinks appropriate for its students. These links can include help with schoolwork, emergency services, or social issues such as reporting bullying. Personal crisis contact numbers provided by the government or the wider community can also be listed here.

School Access
If your school is not using the App4 Schools System yet, you can still download App4 Students and use the functioning Demo mode to run in Trial mode as “Jimmy” or “Julia”.

Access to the school’s App4 Schools System server requires password login credentials which are provided by the school. Once connected, student information, timetables and the Info and Help content is automatically synchronized for each student. The App can work “offline” with data being uploaded to the school's server when available.

Note: To obtain full functionality from the App4 Students App, your school needs to be running the App4 Schools System web server. If your school is not using the App4 Schools System yet, you can still download App4 Students and use the functioning Demo mode to experience how this App can replace and revolutionize your printed student's workbook.

So I have now been using this app for almost 2 years as part of my schools 1:1 iPad rollout and over this time both students and staff have had major issues. To begin with the app freezes and crashes a lot and is very unreliable. Sometimes teachers homework won't even show up in the diary or only appear a couple hours or a day later. There are also issues with the timetable. Also, half the teachers at the school can't even submit homework and their app won't even work - as I said very unreliable. This bug isn't due to the school but is due to the app. Due to these issues the school is in the progress of finding a new form of diary, if that's an electronic or hard copy alternative is to be decided. The app itself has a terrible, clunky and not very well thought out design. Visually the design is tacky and old. Sorry but trying to make the app look like a hard copy diary isn't doing you any favours ('skeuomorphism' is soooo iOS 6). So, all in all, don't waste your time or money. It has turned out to be a whole school issue. As mentioned the app is unreliable, outdated and is drowning in software bugs. I strongly suggest you find an alternative to this lacklustre electronic diary app.

This suite is awesome

We have rolled this out to our school community for 2013 to complement our 1:1 iPad initiative. This system is integral to its success and the ease of use has impressed our staff and parents. It will be great to roll out the Parent App in the near future. The developers are very accommodating and are keen to work you through any troubleshooting in a prompt and professional manner. It will streamline communication in our school and simply "makes sense" with an iPad program within schools. The server fees are very reasonable given the savings on the old written diaries. Now we teachers can push out events/notes/homework to students and have it instantly appear in their diary app.
