We (Android for Academics) just launched an Attendance App. It’s available for free on the Android Market. I can attest to its awesomeness because I’ve been using it in my classes this semester.

The really novel feature is that you don’t need to enter student names into your phone or export the data from your phone at the end of the semester. The app is designed to interact with a Google Spreadsheet.

Here are some details from the website:

A great way to take attendance. Put your student list in a Google Spreadsheet, and this app takes care of the rest. There is no need to enter total absences into a spreadsheet at the end of the semester because all absences/tardies are calculated in your google spreadsheet each day you take attendance.

Key features:

  • Automatically calculates total absences and total tardies.
  • Stores the dates that students were absent/late.
  • All data is stored on your Google Docs account!

If you have an Android phone – check it out. Search “Attendance” in the Android Market.

    This sounds very Big Brotherish. Sure, easy attendance sounds great. But then the machines will rise and our privacy will fall! Vive la revolucion indeed.

    Why you gotta waste my flava?

    I’ve been using it for taking role at church. I don’t seem to be able to remove classes on my phone and the only other thing is I’d like to be able to edit the options. Change the defaults from Present. Absent or late to something else or just present or absent.

    Great app on my D2, but it doesn’t show in the market place with my Archos 70. Is there a tablet version??
