Today's Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Quick TimeTable Pro and MyHomework Student Planner

Today's Free App of the Day is Quick TimeTable Pro
Originally $1.00


This is an app to keep track of your daily schedule by the hour. Good for people who have class schedules or anyone who needs to schedule regular daily events. (Though I would probably just do this on my calendar. But perhaps you have a busy shared calendar and want to keep your class schedule separate.) I wish there was a way to move a "class" or scheduled item from one time to a different time by dragging or cut and paste. As far as I could tell, you have to delete the item and then recreate it somewhere else. Nor is there a way to designate recurring items. So if you have American History three days a week, you have to add it to the three days. Though once you have American History as one of your subjects, you can just pick it from a list to add it to other days or different times. Really, I'm not sure why anyone would need this app, but if you need something like this, it's okay. Three stars from me. Because I think it's kind of lame, I found an alternate app.

3 of 3 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: myHomework Student Planner.


This app lets you set a schedule (though once it's set, it's not quite as pretty and clean as Quick TimeTable Pro.) But you can set recurring classes very easily; setting and changing the time is easy. It also lets you track homework, and, apparently will connect in with a system that some teachers/school systems use. The only thing I didn't like was you had to login with either Facebook or directly to the site, and if you don't use FB, it asks for your gender and age (I apparently now have a 13 year old son). Ads were not intrusive but there is supposed to be a premium account, though I couldn't access it through the app and it doesn't appear to be available in the App Store.

147 of 185 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HDXs. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
