Attendance App for iOS

Attendance is a universal iPhone/Touch/iPad application. It allows you to take and keep attendance records. Its main intended use is for teachers to keep track of records for their classes, but it can also be used for meetings and group gatherings.

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.

Used in course? Yes
