Live Activities

November 20, 2023

Introducing Live Activities: see your schedule at a glance! Live Activities display what's happening now, what's coming up next, and the countdown right on your lock screen, complementing Saturn’s existing calendar lock screen widgets. Users of iPhone 14 Pro, 14 Pro Max, 15 Pro, or 15 Pro Max phones can additionally see Live Activities on their always-on displays and in the Dynamic Island. No configuration is required — just open the Saturn app during the school day and Live Activities will launch automatically!

Bulletin Expands Beyond Events

November 13, 2023

This week’s update includes a LOT of additions to Bulletin, your home for sharing and discovering announcements with your school!

First, we’ve added two new post types: text and image posts. Since launching Bulletin in Spring, we’ve seen clubs at thousands of schools turn to Saturn to spread the word about events like Homecoming, sports games, tryouts, and recitals. But you told us that you had more to say than just events. With text and image posts, you can share fliers, photos, reminders, and simple updates with your school!

We’ve also added comments and reactions to bring your community together! Wish your friends luck in their game, celebrate their win, or ask a question.

New Tasks Widgets

October 27, 2023

We’ve launched a new Tasks widget on the Now tab! This update seamlessly integrates task creation and management into your daily workflows. We’ve received over 20k+ requests for this feature and are very excited to finally be sharing it with you!

You can now create tasks directly from a widget on the Now tab, view your task completion progress, and keep track of upcoming tasks that you have yet to complete. In addition, tasks now display on your class profiles. These improvements have already increased productivity, doubling Task usage for new users on Saturn!

Improving School Schedule Menus

October 23, 2023

We’ve revamped our schedule menu! Now you can easily preview any schedule before you elect to change to it, providing a more seamless and comprehensive experience.

Any given high school has various schedules that they follow throughout the year– whether that be one of the school’s primary schedules, a modified schedule (e.g. an early dismissal), or a unique day (e.g. an exam day). If Saturn is not showing you the right schedule for the day, you have an option to change your schedule locally on your device. Implementing the schedule preview allows you to more confidentially make a change and know exactly what schedule you’re choosing.
