  • Last update messed it up

    By GearheadMom
    As a teacher and parent, I have had nothing but good things to say about this app, but after this last update I cannot use it on my phone. I am getting notifications, but cannot post anything new nor reply to anyone. I post everything from my laptop, but still can’t see anything new from my phone. I can only see posts on my classroom page and my son’s teacher’s page from before the update. It’s been saying on the computer version for about three days that they are having connectivity issues - why so long to fix it?!
  • The worst

    This app is the worst. It’s hard to navigate and I’ve been using it for 2 years now. Notifications and messages are hard to see. Parents get one on here and chat, blowing up my notifications for unimportant things but the worst was when a child got on here and downloaded every single picture from their parents camera roll. Hours and hours of alerts that couldn’t be silenced. I realize that that’s not the norm but when one person in your kid’s class decides to abuse the app, the rest of us suffer.

    The app is very glitchy and not user friendly. It stops working many times throughout the day. It’s a good idea - they need to work out the kinks.
  • Any that school app!

    I have used 3 or 4 different school apps over the course of 4 years and as a parent I feel this one is Not very good. The interface is layered and not user friend which makes it hard to figure out how to navigate through the app. I would not recommend this app..
  • Not friendly for more family members

    It’s ok. The “news” feed is really busy. For example, do I really need to see every time some kids parent (ehem KAREN!) in my kids class changes their profile picture? No, no one needs to see that. I don’t need to see every little change that the “other parents” are making to their profile. Stop being terrible Facebook and be original. The app is also glitches and freezes in some screens. You have have to force close the app to get it working again. Also, I find it challenging to see what is newly posted and what is old. That could be on me. But my REAL ISSUE I have with the app is for a family you can have yourself, a spouse, and your children. End of story. That is so ridiculous. When is the last you’ve seen a traditional 1940 nuclear family? We have step parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, step children, cousins, foster parents, etc. Why can’t they get be apart of the family? At the very least there should be room for both parents and step parents. These are my thoughts. Thank you. That is all.

    I can only speak to the iPhone version. It freezes for unacceptable duration on certain screens and some actions lead to the app doing crazy things like partially transitioning to a useless page, etc... This is alpha quality at best. It needs to go back into the oven for some additional cooking.
  • Photo sharing and captions

    It’s really disappointing that teachers cannot download a photo that has been posted or write a caption for a photo without paying for an upgrade. I understand the need to monetize an app, but it would be nice if teachers could have that feature for free. I feel very limited in this app. My school wants all teachers using the same app for consistency. That’s the only reason I use it. I’d rather use the app I used previously. It was much more kind to teachers.
  • Absolute junk.

    Hot steaming pile of garbage. I am so sick of the world trying to cram social media down out throats.
  • I have to reboot the app.

  • Slow

    By Genesis Ortiz
    Very glitchy and slow when selecting menus. Requires me to close and end the app in order to get it running again.
