Ratings and Reviews
*Updated Review 7/5
The automatic login was fixed! Unfortunately there is an annoying, more minor problem with a new feature Tocomail released, if someone sends you a link, and you click on it, it will open inside the Tocomail app, instead of taking you out, to Safari or otherwise. That would be ok, but it doesn't work all the time and we always get half the screen showing it, and the bottom half doesn't. It's annoying, and I wish they would just fix it, or take you to Safari again.
Old Review: The most recent update (as of 5/10) makes your child sign in every single time you open the app. It was great, BEFORE the update. Now if you swipe out, you have to log in again. EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Thank you for your feedback. We have corrected this problem. In addition to this, we added authentication using fingerprint, which is fun, easy and safe for kids.
Good Email but Bad App
This email is great for monitoring kid’s emails, but the touch on the Mailbox screen is off. For example, if I try to tap an email it will select the one below it. This makes me have to click above the email I want every time. Very frustrating. Please fix.
I reinstalled the app like you suggested and this fixed the problem. Thank you!
Thank you for your feedback. We are looking into the problem and will fix it in the next release. Meanwhile can you please re-install the app to see if the issue will go away. To reinstall, you will need to delete the app first and install it from the AppStore again. Please let us know if this fixes the problem.
Works great for my two kids
We are using this service for three years. Absolutely love it. It has non-intrusive parental controls and it is a lot of fun for kids.
