Teaching Strategies Family Negative Reviews
UX is so poorUnfortunately it’s almost impossible to use the app because of not-intuitive interface and lots of bugs..Taly4Version: 10.11.13
DisappointingAs a teacher, I’m extremely disappointed that I can’t use the app as well. I have to be logged in to the website to see or send messages. I don’t have time during the school day to keep logging into the website, so I miss messages from my parents. I would much rather have push messages sent to my phone through an app so I could quickly check them. If I want to send pictures to my parents, I have to take the picture, mail it to myself, download it to the computer, then upload it to the site. And I can only send one picture per message. It’s far too time consuming. I would also like a stream where I can see a list of messages sent to the whole class. It’s too time consuming to check each child’s list individually. If my district didn’t make me use this app, I would be using ClassDojo. It’s so much more user friendly..KbelledVersion: 10.8.21
So bummed…We are stuck with this app because my child’s preschool uses this to share pictures, videos and messages.
The pictures and videos are a pain to view in this app (cannot zoom properly) and extremely painful and require multiple attempts to be able to download!
Cannot hear anything in the videos in the app- though you can hear them if you are able to download on your local phone.
Since we cannot hear anything in the videos in the app, the videos that has other kids are useless because we cannot download it due to “security” features!
I think most undergrad software students can build better apps today!.AnynicknamenkttakenVersion: 11.11.15
Was great at firstWas great when first downloaded it in August. But since the last update I now can not see any of the messages my sons teacher sends. I will get the notification that have new message but can not view in the app. My husband also is having the same issue on his iPhone as well. Hopefully this issue is fixed soon so I can communicate with his teacher this is very important since we are all online right now..Capsgirl70Version: 10.11.13
Terrible app for viewing updatesWe get alerts to view our son’s activities at school on the app and nothing appears on the app. This happens over and over and over again. It is super frustrating and very difficult to find the logins to the correct portal on web, which we have to use, because the app is so terrible..Tortuga1507Version: 11.11.15
Goodbye to all pics and communicationThe worst company and app ever, no wonder our school is moving to another platform. They show low res images and there is no option to download everything!!!!!! You have to go in one by one to download images and forget about what teachers wrote about your child. Tell the school to avoid this company at all cost!.User 801724Version: 11.10.7
Not coaching friendly for the teachersHi, I am a coach. I would like to have access to this app in order to coach the teachers and their families on how to use this app. There is app not coaching friendly for the teachers to support the families. The teachers cannot access the app in order to walk the families to use it..[email protected]$LoveVersion: 10.8.21
The most user unfriendly appFrom signing up to using, this is the worst developed app, makes simple functions extremely cumbersome, very user unfriendly.
I’m very well versed in operating and using web based technology so the problem is not me. Very bad!.MarnoamVersion: 11.11.15
Auto sign off ...In the middle of me using app once I go to my messages the app says invalid token and signs me out..Ayyub_BXVersion: 10.11.30
It worked till it didn’tThis app was easy to use in the beginning but now it doesn’t work right. I can’t upload my observations and communicate with my child’s teacher..ZavertnikVersion: 10.12.10
No goodThe app shuts down every time I attempt to click on a thumbnail picture. I would love to be able to check in on my child but can not. I hope my daycare switches to a different app.TheDuke470Version: 11.10.7
Messages won’t workI downloaded the update and now the messages area won’t work. It’s completely blank. So frustrated since I can’t see any messages from the teacher now. Useless..Jensign43Version: 10.11.13
A shameIt’s 2022 and this is what we have? The app malfunctions, emails with links about your child send you to the App Store… really wish my school didn’t have a contract with this company. Dojo is so much better.Sunbum808Version: 12.4.5
FrustratingAfter taking FOREVER to log in, I can’t even see the communication that I have access to on through my browser. A real disappointment..Mel198199Version: 10.8.21
Teachers can’t accessThis app would be wonderful if the teachers could have access to it without having to have a “child” in the class..FullhouseofchildrenVersion: 11.10.7
Not a functioning tool.Can’t see any information on our page despite teach uploading information. It’s currently a non-functioning tool..Bene11511Version: 11.3.11
If you can give zero stars i wouldThis app is awful ! Freezes and takes forever to load..Mrs KDVersion: 10.7.22
CrashingJust keeps logging me out. Can’t see what’s happening with my baby. Very frustrating. Can I give zero stars?.EricaindenverVersion: 11.10.7
Log in issuesEvery time I log in the app immediately logs me back out. Completely unusable..Previous Droid UserVersion: 11.10.7
3 Days Into Use, 3 Days of FrustrationWhen the app works it’s fine. It shows the content, albeit, the interface and format is not great. My issue is that I can never get logged in! It only works intermittently. Really needs a major update..Denver Colorado galVersion: 9.6.13
Not versatileOnly one parent can get all the pictures and messages..HendjaVersion: 11.11.15
Buggy and barely worksThis app badly needs an overhaul; it’s so bad it’s almost insulting. I can log in fine, but I can only look at one PDF or picture before the app freezes and prevents me from doing anything. Clearly this company cares mostly about selling its cruddy software to schools and does not care one bit about the parent experience. I’ve emailed their support people and no reply. You’ll also notice they haven’t responded to any of the issues people complain about here. If you are a school trying to decide whether to buy this software, please do not. There are many vendors who care about their customers and actually hire developers to make usable products that are updated regularly..AlicetiaraVersion: 9.10.4
I can’t even log in!When trying to log in to this app, after entering my email, it forces me to login via Google. I did not sign up via Google as I hate linking my accounts together, Google does not need access to my child’s info. I can’t even enter my password that I created via the website, my only option is to log in via Google..AlaskaChildVersion: 9.10.4
Needs messaging and better designWhy is there no way to message teachers during the day? Every other daycare app I’ve used has that basic feature..LeomoregiVersion: 9.6.13
It’s alrightDoesn’t upload all the pictures that the teacher puts on there for us to see.AMA1017Version: 7.12.5
Can’t see anything besides her nameWhen I log in I can see her name perfectly fine but that’s all that’s on the screen. No photos or ways to share the work she’s been doing I hope it can get better because she really misses you guys😊.JnylacVersion: 9.10.4
Can’t even log inI can’t even log in but literally NEVER been trying for a month already and nothing. I really would love to see my child’s school pictures and his day by day pictures 🤷🏻♀️.NayenatyVersion: 9.10.4
Not easy to create a new accountNeeds a major improvement to process for creating a new account..ATB_2016Version: 9.10.4
Worst app - can’t even login in.It’s appalling that this app does not allow users with a gmail email to create a separate account to login. Instead, it forces the users to login in through the Google portal. I guess I will be missing important updates from the teacher..Hello.333Version: 12.8.26
