I love using this app! It makes it so much easier to keep track of documentation. I do wish there was a way to take any videos and pics from my iPhone and upload them onto the app. I don't always remember to take the videos and pics while in the app. I can upload them onto my computer then upload them online but it's a lot of extra steps. This would be especially helpful when I don't have an Internet connection. Also, I would like for the app to stay logged in for a period of time. It takes extra time to log in over and over throughout the day and I sometimes miss the interaction that is happening because of it. Overall, a very helpful tool.
I love this app on my iPad, but think it should be a universal app because not every person can afford an iPad or iPhone, especially on a daycare teacher's salary. A lot of my co-workers have other tablets, but they miss out on these great benefits.
My favorite feature is using the microphone
to put in anecdotal so! So easy, so fast and mistakes are easily corrected!
About the only things I would change, other than making the app available to other tablets,are the ability to save password and if you choose only one child's name you shouldn't have to click back and forth between screens.
And I love not having to put the date in each time. I would certainly keep that attribute!
I've used gold since it came out but just got an iPad so I can use the app this year. Love that I can take observations on the fly and the voice works amazing! Changes I would make would include being able to leave it logged in so that during my four hours of preschool I wouldn't have to login repeatedly. I would like to be able to add two pictures to an observation if necessary. I would like to use fewer clicks to put an observation like clicking on kids names twice for example. And finally I like to do on the spot observations with the on the spot tool and maybe there's a way that I'm just not figuring it out. Thanks for listening.
