Web-Based Overhaul Creates Consistency - Both Good and Bad This app used to never work well for Android. It is now very functional for both Android and iOS since it is very much web-based. The iOS and Android versions now have pretty much exactly the same UI. You can even see your items get uploaded live if you happen to have a browser window open on a computer while you upload your work. These are all positives. The problem is server-side issues. I have tried uploading photos on both Android and iOS and will get an infinite upload loop when I upload for certain students, which does not stop unless I close that app. By the time I do, 15 or so blank uploads have been put onto the website (deleting them is a process, as you have to delete them one by one). Wish list: I wish there was a way to lock in the same class and tags, rather than having a prompt ask me after every single upload. I also wish you could sort the student names by last name, rather than first name. This is new as of their overhaul and it's the most annoying one. It would also be nice to apply batch actions to multiple uploads (such as deleting). There is no other app quite like this, but there is much I'd like to see improved or tweaked.
Good site, poor app The concept is good but the app doesn't work well. It often fails to upload photos that I've tagged. I usually have to upload them to my computer and then transfer them that way making the app pretty pointless.
I HATE ART ^
An Excellent Information Capture Tool This app is great for capturing and tagging information. The online component seems to be well designed as well and easy to use. The only thing missing is the ability to access and view your information from within the app itself - you need to access the web component to view your information. Add a viewing tool within the app and it'll be five stars.
Potential This app has great potential. However, there is no way to create a copy of the full portfolio. The student/parent can copy individual posts, but not the entire portfolio.
