Seats is a classroom management app that makes smart seating charts and selects volunteers just like you would, but faster and easier. And new in Version 2, Seats has several attractive and customizable ways of showing a map of your classroom.

You can arrange students into rows or groups based on what's important to you:
• Chatty students will be separated from other chatty students.
• Students who do better in the front row will be placed there.
• Groups can be created with diverse (or similar) ability levels.

Need a volunteer? Seats can keep track of who is participating and will randomly select students to pick, prioritizing those who aren't as involved.

Seats can be used for up to 2 courses with complete functionality, or unlimited courses can be unlocked with an in-app purchase.

What’s New

Version 2.0.2

This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

[2.0 Updates]
• New customizable seating chart maps show what your classroom will look like. Classes can be arranged in several common patterns, and you can pick whether to view from teacher or student perspective, how to arrange desks throughout your room, and more. Pictures of the setup can be easily exported to other apps or to print. This has been my most requested feature, and I think it strikes the right balance of customizability and simplicity.
• Speed up seating chart randomization for simple set-ups.
• Fixed a nasty crash when arranging larger classrooms using front row settings.
• Other adjustments and optimizations.
• Added the ability to batch-add students by separating names with a semicolon ("Alice; Sarah; John"). This should make entry a bit easier. I'm looking into other options.
• Adapted layout for iPhone X.

If you've tried using Seats but it doesn't quite fit your circumstances, let me know what would help. The website help page will have tutorial videos for how to use the app.

Not functional enough

This app needs some work. I need more criteria input.
I like the chatty student feature and the ability to specify which students need to sit near the front. However, the free version only allows me to input 2 classes. Since I have 7 classes, this doesn't offer enough opportunity to really test its functionality for each of my preps. I just can't make myself pay for it when I can't test it thoroughly. I also don't want to input data for even one class if I potentially have to download a different app anyway.
It is likely worth your money to buy it if you only have 1 prep or a small number of classes.

Developer Response ,

I'm glad it sounds like the features line up with what you're looking for. Sorry the trial model didn't work out; I wanted to have some way to let you test the full app, without ads, and this seemed like the best way to do it.

Closest thing to Happy Class

I was massively disappointed when the happy class app disappeared because I used it to make random-but-not-too-random seating charts. This is the next closest thing I’ve found after scouring the internet and for those who are complaining about having to pay $2 to unlock more sections, it’s literally a one time $2 payment as opposed to happy class which charged $15 annually. There was a learning curve to get it to make my seating chart how my room is set up but once I got used to it then it worked great.

I would like to echo the sentiment that it would be nice to be able to make custom seating charts. I love the ability to keep students at the front, separate chatty students, and group by similar or different ability levels. I would also like to see a functionality to keep students that work well together.

Also the app hasn’t been updated in 2 years which is a bit disappointing. It has so much potential!

My mistake

I thought it keep the participation counts until I do something to delete it, but it doesn’t. I wasted my money on this app. I wish I have read the reviews first. It doesn’t have the flexibility to create uneven seats in different rows. It just doesn’t look right. Also, students’s participation counts get lost on the next day, so it was not easy to keep track for a term grade. Any way, it’s my mistake not to try it longer before buying it.
