Research papers, study groups, final exams – if you are a full-time student you know how overwhelming the semester can get. The iPhone iHomework app, however, is a great organizational tool that will ensure you never forget about an assignment again.

The first step in making use of iHomework is logging all of your classes, including time, location and Web site. If you are one of those students who likes to be in close contact with your instructor, you can also list your teachers and their contact information and office hours.

In the “work” function of the app, you can list all major assignments and cross-categorize by class and due date. One feature lets you prioritize work by setting the urgency level at low, medium or high.

One of the app’s best features is its grade-tracker. Log points earned on each assignment, and you will know exactly what grade you are earning throughout the semester, all without having to ask the teacher.

Another great component of the app is the reminder feature. It creates a little red flag that appears at the bottom of the screen as a way of reminding you of a meeting or assignment that needs to be attended to.

The one thing the app is lacking? Advice on how to pull an all-nighter so you can get through all of your work.
