Schedule Your Homework With Power Planner For WP7
If you’re a student and have to keep track of your homework and assignments, you can of course use a standard calendar and task manager. However, dedicated homework planners are much more powerful, since they allow you to categorize your homework into classes and add useful information like teacher names and schedules.
