What's New in Version 2.0
- Fixed issues with display of students, purchases, and billing information
Works again after the fix but...
I've noticed that the button you press to actually make the payment (at least when the app is running on an iPhone6) is way up on the top-right behind where your battery/Bluetooth status indicators are and it's quite difficult to register a button press. Maybe if it was a little closer to the center of the screen, it would work better. I imagine this would further frustrate parents who have multiple students to pay for as there are many complaints as well about having to pay for each student individually.
Payments don't work thru the app...have to use website. Purchases lack detail - would help to coordinate more info on the lunches instead of 'Lunch A' , 'Lunch B'. Only able to make payments for one student at a time, requiring multiple fee payments to reload accounts for 2+ students in the same family. Nonetheless, i still use it for the convenience, but definitely could be better.
Absolutely Horrible. Can't even sign in
I used to use this and it was cumbersome to say the least. I forget why. I know I was trying to pay but it wouldn't work. I also think it couldn't properly recognize and deal with multiple students. I have 2.
For the last few months, I've tried to log in and it tells me to check my connection. I have a connection. I hate programs that give some misleading error.
The main reason I want this app is sometimes I don't know when the kids need replenishing. Sometimes I'm away from a computer and get a text, "dad, I need some more money in my account". I'd love to go in and pay right there, but somebody apparently can't program worth a darn.
If I can't even log in, this is worthless.
