Planbook is lesson planning software for educators. Enter the courses you teach and the type of schedule you use and you'll be planning in no time at all.
Planbook lets you create lesson plans using six customizable text fields. You can easily create assignments with assigned and due dates and attach web sites directly to your lessons.
You can view an entire week of lessons at once, or zoom in and focus on one day at a time. Making quick edits is as simple as tapping once on a lesson. For more extensive editing, tap with two fingers on any lesson to bring up a full screen editing mode. When viewing a week at a time, pinching out on a lesson will show just that lesson using a large font suitable for use when teaching.
Planbook for iPad is fully compatible with Planbook for Mac and, now, Planbook for Windows. You can use iTunes File Sharing to transfer files back and forth between your iPad and Mac. Or, transfer files wirelessly using Planbook for iPad's built in Dropbox support.

Not ready for serious use
I'm giving it one star because its shortcomings make this app unusable. For example, once you create a time period for a plan, you can't modify the extent of time - so if you made a plan for February, you couldn't extend it to March - you'd have to start the process all over again. Courses can't be created independently of a time plan, so if you do have to create a new schedule, you have to recreate your courses (or classes) all over again. For someone like me who sees 22 different classes in an elementary school: useless. I need my technology to be easier or more useful than writing things down on paper. This app is cumbersome, frustrating, and disappointing.
More customization PLEASE!!!!
I'm a frustrated speech teacher spending too much time trying to find an efficient way to plan. I've lost count of how many methods I've tried at this point. I like most of the features of this app BUT there's no way to adjust for holidays. I teach on a 6 day schedule and no 2 days are alike. My school year started on a Wednesday as day 1 but this app won't allow me to do that. Also, for the rotation it only gives the option of the days as letters (Day A, Day B etc...) I need it in number form and can't find a way to do that. I beg you to allow for more flexibility in this app! Soon!
I use the full version of this program on my MacBook. It works well there, but my lap book is currently in need of repair so I bought this app expecting to be able to sync my iPad with my laptop.... Big mistake. After HOURS of trying to link the plans created on my laptop, with the iPad app. I had to give up. It just wouldn't work. Not even after I downloaded Dropbox as the program suggested.
Now I am must look for a new program from which to generate lesson plans. I need one that will allow me to work from multiple devices w/o having to rewrite new plans or create new plan books each time I change devices.
