Great App should be used by every school
Awesome app great for parents and schools alike the perfect way to help your children stay on top and on track with school work. It's so good to have a day to day breakdown of our sons progress and preform ace at school. Every school and every parent should use this wonderful app. Not sure how good the contact teacher links is working as I have email a couple of teachers from within the app and never had a reply from either of them maybe it's something that needs fixing or at least an alert function so teacher know they've got mail. App is awesome and I'm sure it will only get better with time as it becomes more common than not for teachers and parents to use.
I love I am now able to keep updated on my child's progress in school while our and about. This info is available on the website, but this is much quicker! Now I know what assignments are due when, what his scores are, & what activities are coming up.
Can't see any improvements that the app can make unless there is a controller for the teacher built in to keep their data up to date!
Updated review- since the 2.0 version came out, I am unable to find my sons school. I know it's there, but it can't locate it and keeps saying there is a server issue. That's wrong because when I get in my computer, I can sign in with the regular version. FIX THE PROBLEM!
updated review: Now I can’t even get into the app. I updated from an iPhone 4S to a 6 this past week. The app acts like it is opening, but then freezes before it actually opens. Developers, please fix this!
If you're a parent that actually cares about your kid, this app is awesome!
At the touch of a thumb I get all the most updated information that I need. But it's only as good as the information that is being plugged in, so if I don't see recent information I have to contact that teacher and ask why the delay. I get the feeling that some teachers don't like this system. Tough pooh though, they make loads of money, so they need to do their job!
