Good but needs improvements Please fix notifications options because when my phone or tablet is off for a while and turn it back on the app will send you notifications for the entire day and I have to sit and wait to finish before I can use it. This is completely unnecessary since I only need to receive notifications when I'm using my devices not for what happened when it was turned off.
Good, but room for improvement The user interface is intuitive, easy to use. It allows our family to have a private space to share our moments, without the distraction of advertisements or "friends of friends" as with other social media services. However, there appears to be quite an emphasis on the mobile app development, whereas the website feels somewhat neglected and sluggish at times. There is also some inconsistencies between the website and the mobile app. For example, there's no header photo on the website, but there is on the mobile app. A message to a single person on the mobile app showed as to "all" on the website (which may be due to the other person being the only other person currently added, thus technically speaking would be "all" indeed, but adds to confusion). I would like to see some improvement here, as some of the oldest family members do not have (nor want) touch-screen phones, and so prefer to use a computer. Otherwise, very nice!
The number of acess permissions is scary I'll try it for now, but the amount of permissions will make me Google this app before I start using it.
Great app just needs minor improvements The notifications need to be in number format rather than just icons. If 5 comments are made, you can only see 2 if you aren't by your phone when all 5 go off. Otherwise, it's a really fun app for family and friends!
So far so good (Nexus 5, Android 5.01) Good app and my family is test driving it now. I really appreciate the privacy. Also like the ability to message some of members in the group (i.e. daughter and son but not mom). Some observations: unable to open menu by swiping from left side of phone; no annual payment option; app slow to open; prefer to see date/time of message posts versus numbe of hours/days past.
Ok but.. Needs calendar sync, and more versatile calendar repeat options.
