Getting information to those who need it
Hunting for crumpled letters at the bottom of a bag is not an efficient way to get information to parents. An app means they have all the details they need, whether that’s about a trip, an emergency situation or homework.

7 must-have feature for your schools app
It’s simple to add any feature you like in Builder Studio so if you’ve an innovative education idea, we can help. But here are our top 7 features, that most educators find helpful when creating a customised school or university app:
School attendance, homework & assignment
These important daily tasks consume a lot of teachers’ time. By automating this or making it simple for parents and teachers to connect, less time is spent chasing up students (so teachers can spend more time educating them).
Online fee collection
Not only does this feature save your school or university time but it makes it much easier for parents to pay you! Queuing to hand in envelopes is messy and time-consuming. And hoping small children will not lose cash – is definitely optimistic.
Parents want to keep a close eye on what their kids are learning. This feature helps parents to get in touch with teachers. And this is key for spotting and dealing with any issues early on.
School bus tracking
Great for giving parents peace of mind. This feature may not apply to your school but allowing parents to keep track of their child’s movements between home and school is reassuring and makes your institution stand out.
Essential for keeping parents updated with school activities. This helps you publicise your events properly in advance and puts them front of mind to encourage more people to attend.
This is one of our most requested features for a school or university app and it’s a real must-have. Making it easy for you to send notifications to parents at any time – in case of emergency or sudden changes in your schedule.
This pandemic (COVID-19) taught us the importance of online learning. All educational institutes are planning or providing online classes. And once people see the value, it’s something that can supplement your lessons and help improve grades.
What platform should you go for?
Building a native app for iOS and Android would be the best way to start. As you need all parents or students to be able to access your information, whichever device they own.
If you want to test your idea with a Minimum Viable Product (MVP or a bare bones version of your app) then choose wisely. You can go with iOS, Android, or PWA. We suggest just choosing one of these for your MVP, we’ll build versions across all the platforms you like for your finished product.
- iOS: Apple is the most preferred brand in the USA, Europe, and PRC. So go with an iOS native app for your MVP, if you come from this here.
- Android: Android holds 86% of the total market share and is popular in Asian countries. Android app development is also cheaper than iOS.
- Web Apps: If you’re not able to decide on the native platforms, we recommend you to go with a web app which works similarly to native apps, on any device.
