App regularly does not open and is always very slow when it does. Unintuitive UX/UI and no updates or fixes. Really not suitable for purpose. Update: Developers have asked for 'further details' but as above, the application simply hangs with a darkened screen when trying to open most times. Also, note to the development team, it really shouldn't be up to end consumers to perform the functional testing and feedback on your application.

Update a few months on: This is still the buggiest app on my phone, and the only one I can't just uninstall (as it's the only channel our school uses to communicate with parents). Super frustrating. It crashes, it stalls, and most of the time it just won't open the messages, news letters, whatever it is you're trying to get to. Haven't been able to view a single daily update this week. Frustrating doesn't really describe it.

Hi, we wanted to let you know that our development team have now released a fix which has been tested. This does not require an app update, but you *may* need to hard close the app/restart your phone for the fix to take effect. Once again, we are very sorry for the inconvenience caused and the delay resolving this.

This is the 3rd time I've updated my review and unfortunately it is not to add anything good. For over a week the app has been unaccessible. I get a box come up saying "Network Error" behind a loading circle. I am getting notifications of messages from the school but can't access them. Ironically the latest one appeared to start with "We are aware there has been difficulty accessing the app recently...". Please sort it out!
