This app makes it easy for me to learn students' names, take attendance, and e-mail attendance summaries to myself in spreadsheet form. (Other export forms are also available.) It also lets me send not only e-mails but also text messages to individuals, to everyone absent on a particular day, or to all students in a class. I love being able to let students know if I'm going to be late because of a meeting I can't leave or absent because of illness.

Technical Remarks:

Limitations imposed by my mobile service provider make it necessary for me to use a workaround to text everyone, but the workaround is relatively easy to set up. The software author has provided a number of useful updates in the three years I've been using the app, and he provides good support materials and responds to questions quickly. There is now a new version of the app which should be even more useful, but since I have retired, I have not tried it out.

Time spent reviewing site: Have used the app for three years

I use this app every semester, since I have downloaded it to my iPad. In conjunction with PhotoBooth and Address Book, I can upload all of their contact information and photos into the app. 

I can familiarize myself with my new students, take attendance with one press of a button, and send messages/assignments for absent students. This has saved me time versus passing around a class roster for students to sign OR verbally calling roll.
