PocketClassmaker free for single users
- My 2015 New Year's resolution is to make PocketClassmaker freeware for single users with no restrictions except for the expiry date that ensures you stay up to date with the latest version.
- PocketClassmaker is mature software that does everything I need it to do, so updates are rare, approximately every six months. I use PocketClassmaker every day for my own use with three different databases always available. My core database now exceeds 225Mb and the software's as fast as ever.
- PocketClassmaker has no nag screens, no advertising, no printing watermarks and no communicating with servers in the background to collect information. It's just a plain old Windows app, kind of like this Web site which I hand crafted directly using plain old HTML!
- Obviously, it costs money to maintain a Web site and to develop software. If you have been using PocketClassmaker for a while and it's making a difference to your life, consider paying me a donation. My email address is Rob Kellock:firstname.lastname@example.org

Does your Lesson Planning Software have these Nine Must-Haves?
- Using Classmaker as an Effective Teacher.pdf sums up my teaching philosopy as it relates to software tools for teachers. Please read it before you proceed further. It may be that after reading it, you will realise PocketClassmaker isn't for you.
Still with me? What next?
- Go to Downloads and download the latest version.
- Have a look through the Classmaker User Guide in HTML or here as a PDF. The User Guide contains a lot of detail that will be too much to digest in one sitting. For some light relief...
- Check out the Tutorial videos. These show you some of the cool things PocketClassmaker can do.
