School House has updated, and is well worth a look.
I settled on Circus Ponies NoteBook and have loved it!

And whceltics23, what part of the site's banner "Task List is no longer under development and is unsupported. Current users should consider migrating to Schoolhouse." makes me totally wrong? This app is dead in the water, and even if it wasn't, there's better available.

flynntargart, you are totally wrong.
BTW there is a SH3 coming hopefully by December or a little later.

The website says that this is no longer under development, and that we should try Schoolhouse, which is also no longer being developed. (http://idisk.mac.com/gonfunko/Public/tasklist.html)
Does anyone have any suggestions for a good replacement, or is Assignment Planner the last good app?

This application seems really handy, but a feature that I'd really like, is the able to specify grade ranges yourself. For example, in Norway, we use a scale from 1 to 6. Being able to enter these, and have it calculate averages and stuff based on those numbers, would be absolutely fantastic.

Tasklist seems to be pretty good, but I find it hard to organise my classes a little, as my school works on a 6 day cycle. So maybe a bit more flexibility in crating classes would be nice?

As the developer, I'm obviously a bit biased, but I'd suggest you just try both and see which one works better for you. Task List does have the advantage of being open source, so if you're handy with code, you can enhance or modify it as you wish.

Which is better, this or Schoolhouse?

This is a great app for students. It is fairly simple, and could use the addition of some features, but overall, it is the best freeware homework app that I have used. The hilight of this app is its developer. I had a quirky problem with the software, so I emailed the developer. He was extremely responsive, and was able to fix my problems. When I sent the first email asking for help, I recieved a reply in fifteen minutes, a rarity for software support. All subsequent email (About 5 or 6) were answered with the same speed. Some features I would like to see are: Widget Improvements, Color coded assignments based on whether they are due tomorrow due today, late or another type. Other welcome additions would be A button to send the assignments as a note to your iPod, An imporved way to add and edit courses, and an option to hide assignments when they are marked as completed. Overall, a very nice app, with a great, responsive developer who is constantly adding features to his software.

See http://www.gonfunko.com/wordpress/?p=5 for a workaround. I'm aware of this issue and will try to get 4.0.1 out soon to resolve it.

This looks incredibly promising but I get two errors when I open it.
