Backpack provides students with an easy way to keep track of their academic life.  A Schedule to give the student the ability to keep track of upcoming classes and tests.  Assignments tracker to give the student the ability to keep track of assignments that are due.  A Notebook to give the student the ability to type all their notes and have them easily accessible.  Flashcards to allow the student to study for tests with the use of flashcards.

Schedule:

    When courses are created classes are automatically added to the schedule.  If a class is canceled or you need to add a class/test you can easily do it from the schedule tab.  In the settings you can turn on reminders so you don't miss a class/test.

Assignments:

     Enter upcoming assignments that are due and Backpack will list them in chronological order so you know which are due soonest.  You can view all assignments due or separate them by course.  In the settings menu you can turn on reminders so you don't forget to do your assignments.

Notebook:

     Each course you add, a notebook is created for it.  The advantage of this notebook is it utilizes Mark Wei's Standout Library so you can float the note over other apps while still being able to take notes.  This allows you to be viewing a powerpoint or textbook on your device while still being able to take notes.  Notes are shareable so you can upload them to Dropbox, Drive, Evernote, etc.

Flashcards:

     Flashcards allow you to create a sets of flashcards.  Flashcards are easy to create and view so you can study for your next test anywhere.
