Ratings and Reviews
Haven’t used this app for long, and if I’m honest, I don’t like the concept. I preferred the old system of receiving a text from a dedicated school number. I don’t want to have to install an app for every business I wish to interact with.
So far as flaws are concerned, the biggest is that I am still receiving the texts. 🙄 I assume that this is due to the app failing to recognising that a mobile number that’s been recorded with the prefix ‘0’ and one that’s been recorded with the prefix ‘+44’ are one and the same. (I registered my number on the app as +447... I assume the school has registered it as 07...
The other is that the app doesn’t seem to send notifications to my phone when there’s a new message, which is just useless.
So basically, by introducing an app, you’ve just made what was a very good system into an annoying one, that doesn’t work and takes up space on my phone. As a governor, I get a very big say in what systems we as a school use - our parents are not currently getting the quality they deserve. My advice to you is to return to the single phone line system, until you have an app that works flawlessly, before you start losing customers.
First I’d like to say thanks to the developer and I can see potential as it gets more widely known about.
We’re on version 1.7 so I guess this is a relatively new app. Me personally am only interested in the messages and timetables but the school my child goes to only use the message feature at this time but I guess they will explore other features later.
The only improvements I’d like to ask for at this moment is:
1, a message notification on the icon sat on the desktop to alert me of a new message. I have to open the app to check for new messages.
2, when you open up messages it goes straight to the bottom where the new messages are sat.
Helpful but needs improvement
A great idea in theory but has a few kinks that need straightening out! I haven’t been receiving some of the messages and as there are now no text alerts I have missed out on some important info, further to this I don’t always get notifications or when I do I have a constant red icon on the app indicating that I have a new message - which I don’t and nothing seems to clear it.
I’ve tried updating, deleting and downloading again, scrolling up/down, tapping the message, turning the phone on and off yet nothing works so I constantly have to check my phone to see if there is in fact a message.
If these bits could be sorted it’d be so much easier to use.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
