Update 1.2.1

A+ Student Organizer 1.2.1 will hit the app catalog today! This really is excellent news as this update is the most solid release of A+ Student Organizer to date. It includes a large number of improvements which will really enhance the utility of the app. Here are the big changes:
  • A+ Student Organizer now has dashboard notifications for tasks to help you stay on track with your school work.
  • A counter showing how many outstanding tasks each grade has now appears on the list entry so you can easily see which grades you still need to work, and which you are just waiting to get a grade back from your instructor.
  • The grades and tasks lists have been updated to show more useful information.
  • The overall speed of the app has been increased by adding optimizations that came with WebOS 1.4.
We should also mention that this app fixes a bunch of bugs, most notably the bug which set all the grade definitions to undefined whenever they were changed. We apologize to everyone who was effected by this error. We didn't do enough testing before putting out the last release, and we didn't fix the error as soon as we should have.The last two months have been a little crazy for this developer. Between the birth of a second son and some seasonal illnesses A+ Student Organizer didn't get the attention that I would like to have given it. The good news is that now that things are returning to normal updates and improvements should be coming more quickly and better tested.

Thanks to everyone for their support of this app! We are one step closer to this app being the ultimate tool for students that we want it to be.
