Designed by a teacher and mom, this engaging app will help your child (or student) answer the question, "What are we doing today?" Help your child learn the elements of the calendar and plan a sequence of activities. What's Today? combines a monthly calendar and a daily schedule in an easy, intuitive format designed for children. Simple icons, colorful buttons, and voice supports make learning calendar concepts and planning fun.
- use a photo, picture, or icon to mark special events
- record a special message about the day

What's Today? has the flexibility parents and teachers need. It can be used with adult support or by a child independently. With up to six log-ins, all of your children can have their own calendars. It is easy to get any child started, even those who aren't reading, by setting the level to beginner (non-readers), intermediate, or advanced (readers).
Whether for home schooling, teaching students with special needs, reinforcing concepts taught at school, or in classrooms, the activities in What's Today? meet numerous educational standards.
The app has been updated to have current and future year options in the opening date screen. Users may continue to create custom icons for the daily schedule and select the preferred level of voice support.
Ratings and Reviews
Great app! Learning about when something happens plus the days, weeks, and months can be a difficult concept for children. This app has all the right pieces that fit together. I easily rated it 5 stars because it is colorful and easy to use for all levels of readers and nonreaders. It is kind-of-like having a daily activity planner for kids. There is even a place for children to draw and save pictures within this app. The "help" voice that is the child's voice is adorable and easy to understand. Thanks to the creator for taking a difficult task of teaching children about the calendar and giving it a new, fun and easy twist. This app is like a "game of calendar" that both parents & kids will enjoy using rather than the old method once used in my house, "How many more sleeps until ___?"
Homeschool Must Have!
As a homeschool parent this app gets straight to the task of whats needing done without having to waste time setting things up. The less we have to jungle, the more work we can get done, leaving time to just be parents and enjoy our kids. The design graphically and functionally are extremely user friendly. The add user can be used from practicing name writing and the draw board the Todays Schedule page can be used for a quick daily math and stay all with in one app. Hoping for an update to the years real soon but other than that this is one happy homeschool Mom. Wonderful Deal! Affordable!
Wouldn't purchase again, not even worth the 99 cents!
There are only two pages to the app. The first page is cluttered with numbers and words along with a small calendar. Kids just find the matching word or number to complete the date. The calendar is so small that the days of the week are abbreviated S, M, T, W, T, F, S.... Really confusing to a kid just learning the days of the week.
The next page has a larger calendar (better) but all you do is 'x' out the day. The calendar is rainbowed with all the Mondays one color, Tuesdays another, great! But today, yesterday and tomorrow are all white, not great.
I don't like the app, it has caused more confusion than clarification to my Kindergartener. Not even worth the 99 cents for what you get.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
