Ratings and Reviews
I’m having the same issues with this app. I’ve been getting emails for months telling me to upgrade and I have but still the emails come. I even called the B.O.E. asking if there’s anything else I need to do. She said,” No, when you click on the update its automatically updated”. Apparently not. I guarantee they hassle my son at lunch because of their own glitches. I also find it a disgrace to pay a fee every time I add money. Lunches are expensive and they don’t get much for teenagers but as a working mother, and no refrigerator for home lunch at school, there’s not much choice. It’s a wonderful convenience when it works and a hassle when it’s not. Another thing is I bought gym clothes for my son last year and because the teacher didn’t know how to put payment thru for gym clothes, he got angry, told my son to get the cash after it was taken out of my account, then gave him a zero for the day for not being dressed for gym. I was flipping out.
Clunky, not well developed
I’m getting ready to have a second child in the same school and I’m told I cannot move money between the two different accounts which is a nightmare. I also find it ludicrous that there is a processing fee to add money to the only way my child can buy lunch. That is a scam. There are many times where my payments don’t go through for some reason or I get messages saying I need to update the app but it’s showing as if I have the most recent version. This app is clearly an afterthought and I wish the school district would abandon it.
Having an app that does this is great I just wish it wasn’t this one
Why a Fee?
Why is there a fee to use this App?
Not only were the lunch fees increased which I don’t mind at all .. but if I have to upload my 6 year old son’s account with $50 or $100 then the fee for each transaction is more than the cost of 1 lunch. To avoid this fee, I have to send him in with a check which I don’t find to be safe - if he loses his bag pack or the check with my sensitive information, if he forgets to bring it to the cafeteria. I’m all about saving & convenience. I find the App very convenient but I don’t think I should have to pay to upload funds to the account each time.
Also, I’ve downloaded the latest version of the app but I keep getting emails to update. Come on, get it together. Focus people.
