This is the companion app for Tapestry, the EYFS Online Learning Journal, for parents and staff of schools and nurseries that use the Tapestry system.
The app enables secure viewing and uploading of observations to the Tapestry web service. Each observation or page can include notes, photographs and EYFS assessments, leuven scale, characteristics of learning and videos. Observations can be uploaded in one single process that makes a new entry immediately available or, optionally, hidden until the manager has approved them.
Tapestry Mobile automatically locks the app whenever you close it; but you'll be able to log back in quickly using a pin.
Fix for videos playing then stopping suddenly on iOS 11.3
Fix for uploads in some situations where the network connection is poor.
Ratings and Reviews
Great but log in to two settings frustrating
I love this app i have used in an early years setting as well as at home for my own children, being able to see what they’re doing at school/pre-school each day is fantastic and being able to share their experiences at home helps the school staff build on their interests. I would however like to be able to switch more easily between different settings on the app, its frustrating having to log out of one to log into the other rather than having both available being able to click on the setting and entering the pin I have to log in with the password each time (which i can never remember both!) i can set remember password but only on one account so I’m constantly resetting my passwords to get into the app or viewing one setting on the app and one via my browser - it would be better to have a ‘switch setting’ button on the home screen of the app so that I can just put in the PIN number (please?!)
App does what it has to, but no more.
In terms of functionality, there’s little difference between the Tapestry app the the web interface, it does everything the website does. You might think the mobile app gives you the flexibility to check updates for your child whilst on the move, but this is not the case. Despite having a PIN number securing the app, you still have to enter your password every time you start it up. By the time you’ve looked up your password in your chosen password management solution, you may as well just log into the website on your PC. This also invalidates the PIN security - what’s the point of it when you have to enter your password every time? This could have been so much better to use, and also more convenient.
So much potential, notifications please!
As others have noted, please create a feature so that parents receive notifications when there is a new post! Our preschool updates at different times each day depending on when staff are free so you have to look all the time to see if anything new is there, it's so easy to miss things and it's basic to the way most apps work that you can get notifications - this is one of the few apps I would actually like to hear from!
I also agree with the comment that photo saving could be made more user friendly with original date and time stamp retained - that would be really great.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
