  • Slow and no data!

    This app is really slow, has confusing notifications (half the time, I don’t know why there is a badge number, and it just disappears after I open/close the app), and doesn’t do any sort of data tracking (like BabyConnect, which has amazing charts). I guess it’s okay for sharing photos, but I want trend lines!

    I do NOT like this app at all and find it to be more of a pain than anything else. It is too generic. I do not like the layout and frankly I think there were better choices.

  • Very Disappointed in Update

    I have been using this app for my school all year. With this latest update everything has come to a crashing halt. The App freezes, takes forever to load pages, and you can't download pictures anymore. With these changes I look like a fool to my teachers and parents for choosing this app. Now I will need to look for a new app, even if I'll need to pay for it for next year, if not immediately. Very angry and disappointed. No excuse for these errors on such an important app for schools.

    The latest update made it so the app won’t open. It keeps saying no internet, but all of my other internet apps are working.
  • App broken with iOS 1.14.1

    This used to be a decent way to get updates from staff at my kids’ schools, but at some point between June and September the app stopped responding when attempting to join a new class with an access code. I can’t select any kids, and choosing “Not Now” leads to and endless loading icon. Why is this not fixed?? I’m about to just delete the app because it’s essentially useless now.
  • Parent doesn’t like app

    Our school started using this app this year and I can’t stand it. I want basic, timely communication. Not a social media type app that constantly lights up with unnecessary notifications every time a parent joins, comments, etc. It all feels unprofessional and unnecessarily complicated.

    Please fix your app. It works great if you only have one group but once you start having multiple groups, it is very difficult to join. It seems to lag or not know what to do one you hit submit.
