This app is a good idea, but there are major flaws. For those of you that have yet to discover a need to use this, please be aware that whenever you try to activate a Safety Timer, you have to request that one or more Guardians monitor the timer. They have to accept the request in order to see it, and if they decline the request, the timer automatically shuts off, regardless of how long the timer has left on it. If they don't see the notification that it sends, which they probably won't since there is no designated alert light color or notification sound, the timer will continue until it reaches zero, but will state that no one watched over the timer. This is very unsettling and definitely not safe. The app should notify everyone regardless instead of sending a request and allow everyone to see it instantly, and there should be a designated sound or vibration for it like the current Amber Alert system placed in Android devices. My sister and I tested the app multiple times, at home, to see if it actually worked since she will be attending college this fall and wanted to see if it worked. Suffice it to say that we were unsettled at the lack of apparent value the app placed on actually safety. We did not get to check out the safety features of the app calling 911 or campus police, but these issues need to be fixed immediately.
Doesn't work. Freezes and crashes the app. Need it right now for a current issue on campus!
Will not send confirmation code. It says code was sent, but it is never recieved
Won't send a confirmation code making the app useless.
security outsourced Not sure if I'm comfortable with this rising trend of outsourcing everything at my state school. Food, safety, repairs & renovations... gone are the days of in-house local jobs. Just another brick in the wall that's whittling away at funds, only direction tuition goes is up. I much rather see the school/students be innovative and creative with developing their services & solutions, not simply passing the buck and having another giant contract bill to pay annually.
Good idea but... How am I supposed to be safe when it won't add my guardians and says pending no matter what? Unusable and disappointing.
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
