I promised I would update my opinion of My Well-Planned Day software after I used it for awhile. This review is unsolicited, unbiased, and written on my own initiative.
I love the concept behind their lesson plans and assignments. I am a checklist person, and this satisfies my need for seeing accomplishments in list form while keeping records of which days we "did school" throughout the year.
The Lesson Plan page (link is to tutorial page) is where you divide your curriculum into a number of lessons. It is like a holding area for future assignments. At a glance, you can see your progress in any subject you have planned. Don't let "lesson plans" scare you. It is as simple as determining how many days you will work on a certain subject throughout the school year. Then if you want to be super detail-oriented in your planning (like I am not), you may edit each lesson to reflect your plans for each assignment. Or you may not...
The Assignments page is for assigning those lesson plans to a certain date/time/student. Once you assign a lesson, it is no longer on the Lesson Plan page. You could assign an entire semester in one click (because you have already told the program on which days and at what time each student will be doing each subject) or you could assign one week at a time. I assign one week's worth every Sunday. Honestly, most of the time I do it on Monday morning at 8:25.
What I do not love is that there is still no mobile app and that the calendar still does not sync with Google Calendar. The Husband and I live by Google Calendar. My dream is that when Well Planned Day finally syncs with Google, my homeschool life will sync with every other part of my life. There is lots of potential in the chores, shopping list, and calendar. But those do not interest me if I cannot pull them up on my cell phone.
That's it in a nutshell.
Is it worth $65? Perhaps. If you need help in organizing lesson plans.
Will it be worth $65 when it syncs with Google and comes with a mobile app? Yes!
