Hi, this app is such a great concept, it really enhances the experience of being a parent :) that said, some things are rough around the edges. Photos are nice, but the viewer isn't very advanced- you can't even zoom. My workaround is to download then view in an editor. The video doesn't play natively either, so I have to open in the stock video player. Other than that, great app! So glad our school uses it!

This app works well for IOS devices, but the experience isn't the same for Android. You can't zoom in on photos in the android version and the notifications do not work consistently. I have to check the app regularly for messages from our daycare because the push notifications haven't been working. Update after developer response. Notifications are turned on they just don't consistently work. I know I can download and zoom in, but you don't have to do that for iOS (which was my point)

Hello and thank you for your feedback. Our team is currently looking into what's needed to allow for zooming into photos on Android, but you can download photos to zoom/edit them. Also, you should be able to receive push notifications when new activities are posted. Please doublecheck notification settings and let us know if the problem persists.

The app shows me stuff, but it really is a poor experience for Android users. I cannot zoom into photos, I can't swipe between photos, and I cannot choose to turn off the swipe to exit the app. This feels like the people building the app do not actually use the app or have kids.
