Recent update adds a step but not bad


SkoolBag recently updated and while it looks fantastic it’s meant I now have to click an extra step before seeing my school (although I assume you have to click the circle for your school so that if you had multiple schools via the app this would allow choosing, it would be great if you could click to default to just one).

Awful app give it a miss


Just terrible. This app is so clunky and slow. It is next to useless. Too many bugs to list: not recommended.
Edit: Sept 2018 The app has been updated but is not much better.
The new "absentee" form is a huge scrolling effort and there is no "summary" option before submitting the form, as in the old app.
The signature box makes your phone/ ipad go into landscape mode and then it's impossible to make a legible signature as the signature screen has no sensitivity and wont record your finger strokes.
All I managed was to scrawl an X. Great.
The new app upgrade has gone nuts on pastel colours too.
DEVS: Note to self KISS. keep it simple stu***

I'd give it no stars if possible......
