Xplor is a private and secure digital platform helping you communicate faster with parents, create observations and share photos and videos. With full compliancy controls, medical records and sleep tracking, you’ll have a permanent and searchable view of everything that happens throughout the day.

Xplor for Parents:

Every moment; every day. Toothless grins, first steps, music, art work, books, and priceless mementos. Saved on a beautifully organised timeline, celebrating your child’s learning memories.

Photos and Videos - Xplor lets you receive learning moments as they happen. You can even add voice files or text to personalise photos and videos.

Live Messaging - Reach educators instantly. You’ll see when your message is delivered to your childcare centre, plus when they’ve seen it. This way, you can be sure your messages are going through like they’re supposed to.

Automatically Sign in and Out - The Xplor app lets you automatically sign your children in and out each time you drop off and pick them up. No more time wasting, no more clumsy registers.

Xplor for Educators:

Every photo and video opportunity captured quickly, tagged with names, activities, medical, sleep and learning outcomes for easy distribution and storage. Share learning with parents quickly and securely.

Automated Rostering and Time sheets - With automated time sheets and rostering, it’s easy to manage your shifts. Your payroll information is automatically updated into the general ledger, without you ever having to lift a finger.

Medical and Health Records - Xplor gives you an easy-to-read dashboard of a child’s health and medical data. Each child has an emergency card with important health information — for example, their blood type or allergies — that’s available straight from their home screen.

Photos and Videos - Connect with parents instantly. Xplor lets you send learning moments as they happen. Educators can even add voice files or text to personalize your photos and videos

Xplor for Service Providers:

Easy Invoicing - Work smarter with online invoicing software. Create professional recurring invoices, schedule bill payments to manage cashflow and invoice groups of customers – with one click. Payments, returns and credits are all tracked automatically.

Payroll Processing - Automatically track time and attendance, minimise compliance risks and increase employee productivity. Employee hours seamlessly appear in your payroll for automated calculation and reporting.

Instant Payment - Your parents just click the payment link on your invoices and make direct payment using their credit card or PayPal. It’s easier than ever to get paid on time.

Has potential but nothing is polished


This app has great potential, it COULD be great but it seems they just don't care about polishing the features they have before adding new ones.

Things like disclosure arrows being hidden under things, numbers on the login pad not being center aligned and other janky UI scattered around the place. My partner also has sleep timers that update on her iPhone 8 but they do not on my iPhone 6.

Incessant nagging about location services gets pretty old too. The location services don't even work for me anyway and shouldn't actually be required when Bluetooth is perfectly capable and has worked perfectly in the past before an update required GPS and it now no long works on my iPhone 6. I'm forced to use a computer to log my child in instead of the app. It was always a bit rocky whether it would work or not but there was a period before Bluetooth location was disabled and it was flawless. Needless to say that only lasted about 2 weeks.

All that said, it's a good foundation, I just hope they look at what they're doing and improve the UX before bloating the app with more half baked features.

“While Using” finally available


Thanks to iOS 11, “While Using” is finally available in your phone Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Xplor. Previously the only two options were Never and Always.

My problem now is that the controls that appear over the photos are hard to see. For example the back button “<“. I know where to find it by experience but not because I can see it.

The app is useful, and it is improving but it still needs some work.

Location services required at all times


The app shouldn't require location services to be set on 'always' - it should be only when using the app so I can sign in and out at the centre. Also the app opens on the timeline, but you have to separately navigate to notifications otherwise the badge on the app (ie the red number that appears on the app before you open it) won't go away. If I'm viewing new activity in the timeline then I shouldn't need to go to notifications as well, just to make the number disappear. Main issue is the location services though. Please fix this asap.
