Default [FREE] Teacher App - Easy Grader

Just published my first app to the Play Store! It's an Easy Grader type app for teachers. Got input from several teachers and designed it with that input. Let me know what you guys think.

Free Ad-supported version:

$0.99 Ad-free version:

Convince me why Easy Grader is better than A+ Easy Grader that actually has feedback from users with an average rating of 4.8 ~ and for the same price!
Thanks.

Um...not sure how to take that. Sorry I couldn't make it cheaper?

I put a lot of time into the theming and design of this app. I think it looks better and functions in a manner more akin to what teachers are use to. The only person in my family (in-laws included) who isn't a teacher is me, and I'm an engineer. I know how teachers use apps like this and received a lot of input and put it into the design of this app.

It's my first app, so yeah, there might be a bug or two I'm not aware of at the moment, but those will be fixed as I'm not an amateur programmer. I've been programming for 10 years.

To add to that, that app only has 4 reviews.

You can't tell me that this:


Looks better than this in terms of UI. Notice the design flaws in the other app. Teachers have to type in how many questions and then hit a button to generate a chart. The chart has 3 columns, meaning it will have to put 33 items per column to get to 99 questions. By the time you do that, you will be off the screen and forced to scroll.

Appreciate it. I see you were just playing devil's advocate now. I have decided to go ahead and offer a free ad-supported version of the app as well. Hope to get that out in the coming weeks.

LOL. A little too late I'm afraid. My brother went from teacher to VP. But I created a heavily formulated spreadsheet that worked for him. Gave him averages for each student and letter grades assigned according to mark ranges. Kept him organized, but that was many years ago. It showed him how students were progressing, which ones might require additional aid, etc.

But that was a spreadsheet and took me days to tailor and make to his specs.

Yep, and now most schools have system-wide programs that do the same thing. THowever, this app doesn't aim to replace that. It aims to replace this:
