The three common homework apps for the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad and Mac (sorry Windows) are up for a battle of which is most worthy of space on your devices.

Price free $1.99 $2.99

So who is the winner? The one that sits on my iPod’s dock is iStudiez Pro. My college life is hectic and iStudiez offers the most customization to adapt it to my needs. It is worth the $2.99 price tag for all that it offers. It lacks a desktop app and a easier way to transfer/sync information across iDevices but I can live without it for now. The app is packed full of features that make the app great for a power user but simple enough for most people to use. Go through the table and get the app based on your own personal needs.
