There have been a couple of issue with this update. The problem is corrected by deleting and reinstalling the app. However, we have a fix ready and waiting for Apple Review. Thanks for understanding as this update is free and a complete rebuild with added functions.
Provide excellent feedback and reduce your grading time. Essay Grader is not automatic grading software. Rather, it is smart and fully customizable technology that allows instructors to provide more effective essay critiques than ever before. Instructors soon find themselves grading faster as Essay Grader eliminates the need to write the same comments over and over again with a red pen. Just touch appropriate checkboxes to create a feedback document for each essay you grade. The gradesheet can then be emailed to the student, emailed to yourself, or exported to a desktop for printing, editing, and archival. Essay Grader uses Dropbox to sync files across multiple platforms and devices. You will never lose your work and you will have all the powerful features of Dropbox to handle your file storage, sharing, and workflow.
Essay Grader comes with an extensive library of pre-written comments in the areas of praise, organization, content, mechanics, style, and documentation. Each comment comes in six unique varieties in order to assure varied language on graded feedback documents. Essay Grader’s default comments were written by a small group of English professors and are appropriate for all levels from secondary through university-level academics. After you have chosen your comments, simply assign a holistic score on the “Grade” screen and that grade will appear at the bottom of the student’s feedback sheet.
From tab labels to comment text, every aspect of Essay Grader is fully editable. Customize the default comment database or create entirely new comments of your own. Essay Grader's content can be modified to conform to any discipline, rubric, or grading style. The app was born among the earliest tablets in 2010 and has matured into effective, stable technology that is not just for grading papers anymore. The app's flexibility makes it the perfect assessment tool to evaluate just about any project, performance, speech, product, assignment, or creation in practically any discipline. The mobile version is especially good in environments where one must grade on the move. Teachers and professors from middle school through college have reported praise from their students for the quick turnarounds and thorough feedback Essay Grader makes possible. Many departments are even using Essay Grader to standardize grading among their teams.
Reclaim your weekends, provide comprehensive and highly targeted feedback, and watch your students' writing improve with Essay Grader.

Needs A Lot of Work!
This is a horrible time to roll out an update. My database from the previous version is gone! The program constantly being crashes. Comments are not visible until you are ready to send an email. Interface is not user friendly. Please consult with teachers before you change things around again. For now, I have to downgrade my rating from five stars to one star.
Nooo! Updated and now crashes :/
Crashes after loading the database. No work done tonight - hope you can fix this soon; this is one of my favorite apps.
Absolutely terrible… Whoever is making the decisions and doing the programming should be fired immediately. Warning… Do not buy this app it is a complete rip off
