Welcome your assignments in the Week pane

The feature you’ve been asking for is now here!

Your assignments can be seen in the Week pane of the app for easier planning of your working load. Check when your assignments are due and how much time you have before you should turn them in! Adds to your self-organization and to our karma.

Curios about what other great features the new update will bring? Here you go!

  1. This update brings you the ability to swipe weeks in the Week pane with your touchpad.
    Browse your schedule, like, fast and furious!
  2. Those red exam days in the Week view became more visible for better differentiation.
    Be organized like never before!
  3. Convert your class into exam event.
    Do it immediately with just a few clicks, and no need to add a separate exam entry. Simply right click on a class entry in the Overview and check “Convert to exam” option. Voilà! The aesthetic impression of your schedule in the Week pane is not ruined.
  4. The refreshed look of the icons in the app.
    It was quite a while since we updated them, so we fixed that and they look yummy!

You may like to know that we have fixed the bug of reflecting the event that lasts for a few days in the Calendar of the app. The dots for the event are now shown for ALL days of the period of duration.
Furthermore, the app now takes much less valuable screen space in Full Screen mode, so you can easily use it along with other apps that will definitely improve your workflow.

We are always glad to receive your feedback in our blog, Facebook, Twitter or email.
You often send us interesting ideas so please keep on doing that.

Thanks!

Meet the Grade Graph on iOS

It’s been a while since we’ve introduced the Grade Graph feature on Mac. First introduced as an experiment, the Grade Graph turned out to be an elegant and charming way to keep visual track of your grades. Kindly meet the Grade Graph on iPhone and iPad.

The Graph pictures your academic progress in real time. It’s kinda easier to see how your grades progress (now we hope they are!) and get a nice visualization of your “studying tendencies”.

Now how to find it? You can see it right in the Planner on your iPad. On your iPhone the Planner is the location too, you just need to tap the course in question and switch to the landscape view.

The Grade Graph always lets you know whether you do well or it’s time to get your… hm… self to your desk and study hard.

So enjoy and please share the news in your social networks, we appreciate any support to our app’s development 😉

Cloud Sync is back to normal operation

Here’s the chronology of what happened to our Cloud Sync service recently.

SUN, JAN 21, 2018
Our hosting provider decided to update hardware & software on our servers as measures to prevent security vulnerabilities.

We as client were not able to either decline these services or influence them in any way.
Usually such maintenance works are underway no more than 4-5 hours, so the announcement from the hosting provider did not raise any of our concerns.
After the maintenance was complete, part of servers were back to normal working order.
However, some of the servers were still down.

We’ve spent the entire weekend trying to get in touch with the provider to reveal the origin of the problem.
The connection with the failed server was completely lost.

MON, JAN 22, 2018
After 48 hours of silence the hosting company was finally able to clarify the situation occurred.
They’ve confirmed that there was a hardware problem (failed HDD) with one of our servers.
We were trying to get the data from the failed server and at the same time were in a search of alternatives to our current hosting provider.

TUE, JAN 23, 2018
Despite our multiple requests through all available communication channels, the hosting provider has not changed the failed HDD on the server yet.
We have already set up the new server with a new hosting provider.

WED, JAN 24, 2018
We restored Cloud Sync service back to normal operation.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding, patience and cooperation.

Little Merry Update!

Acknowledgements first! Thanks a ton to our TestFlight beta testers who worked hard to make sure they never lose any bug creeping past them in the last update of iStudiez Pro. It let us make some really nice polishing and deliver you the results.

iStudiez Pro now works flawlessly on iOS 11. Furthermore, iPhone X users may be pleased with the UI improvements (here we go, on a never-ending road to perfection).

We hope you like the course statistics available now in Planner pane on iPhone.
Yet we dare think you may also adore some other small yet powerful candies in the app 😉

iStudiez LITE just got the biggest update too. With all the novelties the Pro version has had in 2017 (yep, Drag & Drop, Split View etc.) the first-use-experience of our newcomer users should be similar to unpacking a Christmas present 🙂
That’s how we hint that you can easily recommend iStudiez LITE to those who have not yet made up their minds to own the Pro version.

AND, be brave and be our ambassadors, as we are always on guard for you.

See your classes with Siri Watch Face

We got actually excited with it as soon as we saw it on watchOS 4. Pretty handy!
You’d get excited too if you knew that you could actually see your schedule with Siri Watch Face.

How? Simple enough: using Schedule Sharing in iStudiez Pro you can export your schedule to the Calendar app and voilà!
Your classes will show up in the new Siri Watch Face.

What’s even cooler: they’ll be always up to date.
