Good with potential to be GREAT!!!
I’m not one to frequently pay for apps and I NEVER leave reviews, however scripts deserves it. First off, the app does exaclty what it says it does. It’s also the only app of it’s kind, so I paid the $7. I have searched all over for a way to combine all my college courses to prepare for transfer and was unable to find any alternative to the lousy school counselors. This app has been a HUGE help and will help me a lot as I prepare to fill out applications. That said, I really hope that development on the app is ongoing - I would love to see some additional features (such as W, or a way to mark classes that were retaken) as well as more print options.
NOT worth $7.
It does MOSTLY what it says it does. It does NOT, however, allow you to do something like set “homework” as a percentage of your grade, and then add assignments to this set. You basically have to predict how many homework assignments you’re going to have, and then divide your total homework percentage by this number. Which is impossible. Also, if your class is point based, you will have to find these percentages, which wouldn't be a big deal if you knew exactly how many points there are in a class. However, sometimes you’ll have something like this: “There will be 7-10 homework assignments worth 20-30 points each”. It does have some good, though. I really like that you can group your courses. This makes it extremely easy to see your major/minor GPAs. It’s also nice to be able to see a GPA for each semester/year. The bar graphs are a little wonky, though. The C column has a weird negative area, whether you’ve had Cs or not (I tested a few things to get this to go away, but it wouldn’t). It would be nice to have a little more customizability than changing the font colors. I haven’t been able to figure out how to change the background color yet (as it shows in the pictures). In fact, a tutorial for the whole app would have been nice. All in all, it is an okay app. It is extremely sub-par for a $7 app, but I could see spending a two or three dollars on it.
You know what’s great? The fact that if this software does what it claims it can, it refutes what every academic advisor told me was possible this semester (namely combining your cumulative GPA from other institutions). Impressed already.
