    I echo the 11/15 review by purrfectrek!!!, most specifically the notification issue. I am to the point where I want to turn my notifications completely off because more times than not I can’t find why I’m being notified. OR, I’m being notified because 100 other parents are making comments on something that doesn’t pertain to me and I have no desire to follow. I wish our school had not jumped on this app without more testing. Unfortunately, this is the only means of communication for us so I must live with it AND struggle through notifications/badges to find the things that I need to know. PLEASE FIX!!!

    I love this app! I get reminders to send home books, events, things to look forward to etc. I can message the teacher and get a quick response. I definitely recommend Bloomz.
  • Cluttered and chaotic

    We just moved from a school district that had its business in order to....this. It’s cluttered, and the time line and events are all over the place. This could be streamlined and used so much more efficiently. This is the bane of school apps.

    It’s coo. I enjoy class dojo better but this is good too.
  • Great platform that fills a small but critical niche

    Simplifies a communication process that can very easily get lost in the noise of basic student/teacher/parent activities.

    I’ve been using Bloomz for my son’s class since September 2018. It is my first experience with a classroom app and I have to say that I’m not too impressed. It seems glitchy and not very intuitive. I have badge notifications that seem to take days and days to finally go away after I’ve seen any updates. This alone drives me crazy! When I see a notification badge I end up searching all through the app to find something new, alas it’s all old news. Then magically a day or 3 later the badge will finally disappear. I’m always left wondering if I’ve missed something important from the teacher or another parent. My other issue is that I get notified for every little “like” and “comment” on a post, yet when someone posts photos, there’s no notification. Nothing. Crickets. I’ve recently just stumbled upon some fun pics of my son from October that I had never seen. I’ve also been the main poster of photos for the class and I am 100% certain that no one has seen them. So now I’m wondering that if I post class photos, do I then have to separately send a class-message informing parents to head to the media section to see pics of their kids? Seems very silly and redundant when it could be a simple badge when anything new in any part of the app has been added. I could go on and on. I do like some features, but it could be a LOT better.
  • Worst Classroom app I’ve had to use

    With 2 young kids in school we’ve used several different classroom management apps the past couple years. This one is by far the worse. constant notifications but when you open the app nothing is there. The group chat is a horrible upgrade to a mass text chain. The app is garbage. Developers could learn a thing or 2 from Seesaw
  • I like this app

    I like this app it keeps me updated of what my kid is doing at school. One click and I can see pictures of what she’s done for the week. Also, teachers send notifications of what is expected for homework the following weeks. I like this app a lot
