Business Description

Homeschooling is becoming increasingly popular among parents who are frustrated with traditional school options. It can be an overwhelming job, and parents are eager to find tools to help them stay on top of lesson plans, grading, and schedules. This software is currently the only homeschool planner designed specifically for Mac and iPad users. This represents huge opportunities for growth. Assuming that just 6% of all homeschooling families use Apple products at home, with approximately 1.5 million homeschooling families in the United States alone, this represents 90,000 potential customers at once, with hardly any competition. As new families start homeschooling each year, there will also be new customers every year.

This software helps teachers design courses and lesson plans, schedule assignments, track grades, benchmarks, test scores, attendance, activities and achievements. It also has a number of report features. There are two versions: one for Mac computers, and one for iPad users. The two versions have different interfaces, but are able to share the same database. Databases are stored on each user’s system (and personal backups). There is no cloud storage of app information and the developers have no way to access any user’s database.

Detailed Information

Code for Mac and iPad versions, website domain & forum, "How-To" videos, and associated logos. (Home Based)
There are several homeschool planning apps available online and for Windows, but this is the only app available specifically for Mac users. Many of our customers prefer to maintain control of their own data and not pay the monthly fee associated with online options.
Growth & Expansion:
We've sold over 1400 downloads of the app with barely any marketing. There is a strong demand for this product in a niche market. A skilled developer could take the existing database, add requested features and performance upgrades, and make this app the gold standard for educational planning and recordkeeping. A little bit of marketing goes a long way in the homeschooling community, because word-of-mouth and review sites are so important to their purchasing decisions.
Support & Training:
Buyers will need to already be proficient programmers. The programming language for both the Mac platform and iOS platform versions is Objective-C, using Cocoa and CocoaTouch frameworks. The database is built with Core Data. Seller will train buyer on how to best use the app and help customers.
Reason for Selling:
My programmer found a job with a big company, and I haven't found a replacement.
