What is Soshiku?

Soshiku is a simple but powerful tool that manages your high school or college assignments. Soshiku keeps track of when your assignments are due and can even notify you via email or SMS.

Many of us are looking for programs and websites that will sync to our mobile phones. This site allows to SMS updates as well as email reminders.

Logging into Soshiku is easy, and will look like this:

These are all customizable to your situation, whether you’re using Soshiku for school or for professional reasons, the assignment and calendar are all accessible from this screen.

In my own world, trying to balance professional and personal duties has always been a challenge. I want a easy interface that’s simple to understand and is also available on my mobile phone. Some people might be less interested in the SMS features of Soshiku, but would utilize email updates of assignments. In my opinion it’s all about what keeps you organized.

Soshiku is geared towards todays student, but it’s usefulness seems to stretch far beyond those with assignments due in class.
