Since I have changed phones in Nov, I have been unable to log in to the app. The reset password link also does not work, and there is no way to contact the developer. The school district has also been unable to help. When the app worked it was useful, but no with cold weather and it being useless I am very frustrated by the inability to reset the password/ get into the app once it was installed on a different phone.

The app made me create an account, and after that keep saying that is unable to find the student. I thought that the student ID was wrong and called the school to verify, but it is correct. I created a second account because I taught that something was wrong with the first, but still the same, keep saying that they are unavailable to find the student. This app doesn't work 😠 is just collecting our information for nothing, this is wrong!

This is pretty useful but can be better. (1) Users have to know (watch) where the bus was to set up the correct notification radius/area so there's plenty of time to get to the bus stop. (2) A list of bus stops with pickup/dropoff times would be more useful. (3) I'm happy the "bus number changed" notification also changed the tracking info in my app, (4) but the system and app notifications seem to be viewable only once. I had to manually search the map for the new bus to lookup the number.
