“Jessica D, a teacher in Louisiana, uses Remind daily to brief parents on whether their children did well in class and what their homework is for the night. She says the app has led more students to complete their homework and even credits it with improving scores on standardized tests. “The word I use is ‘transform,’ ” she says. “It transformed my classroom. And I think it made me a better teacher.” – Bloomberg Businessweek
“…Remind’s features have proved especially popular in low-income districts, where parent engagement is a key issue for teachers, and parents’ sometimes erratic work schedules can make it difficult to get in touch by phone.” – Buzzfeed

Great, but with lag issues.
Love using this app to communicate with my son's teacher. I appreciate the announcement feature as well. However, lately it seems to take a long time for inbox messages to load or the app crashes completely when opening the inbox. When I first installed this app a few months ago it worked perfectly. Now I am a little frustrated that it can take so long for me to write a message. Hope to see a fix soon. I'm using a iPhone 6, latest updates.
Long time user disappointed by recent update
I've used remind for nearly 4 years and love it. The only thing I hate is that my messages are limited to a character count that is short. As a teacher, I should be able to use formal language and not shorthand text speak in my messages so as to set a good example for communication. Instead, I'm forced to use ridiculous abbreviations to stay within the character count. Please change this.
Great App. Tech Issues
The concept of this app is great and I like using this app. It allows my students and I to communicate in a 21st century way. The kids love being able to "text" me and have group chats. A huge issue I have with this app is that it's very slow. It takes a while for messages to load, often freezing and lagging. I have an iPhone 6 with the most updated iOS software. Overall, this app is great and hopefully these technological issues can be fixed.
