I have been looking forward to this day for many moons and now it’s finally here. Grades 2 is now available on the App Store.

This is probably the riskiest endeavor I’ve ever been involved in. I took a 5 month leave from my job to finish this thing and I’m trying a new revenue model: free + ads and in-app-purchase to get rid of ads. Maybe it will crash and fail. Maybe it will do really well. One thing’s certain, it’s gonna be a fun ride. I’ll be sure to keep you posted.

Here is a snippet from the description, in case you’re wondering what this thing is all about:

What do I need to score on my next test to be on track for an A? There’s an app for that.

Now with due dates and a handy GPA calculator.

    In the edit class screen, it’d be nice to pluralize the assignments. Right now I see:

    3 Project
    11 Lab
    3 Test

    I could just pluralize the assignment name when I enter them, but then I see “Projects 1″, etc.

    Just a thought, great job on the app!

    Yea, pluralizing is a bit tricky since its not always just adding an s at the end but I’ll see what I can do. Thanks for the input!
