I initially loved the app. It's a great way to communicate with my son's teacher. However, I am unable to use the back button on my device anymore, I agree with others about being able to add more than one picture, and can you put teacher image announcements back in the main feed as well that was helpful for me to keep track of important information without searching for it in messages.

First I would like to say, I appreciate the concept that the devs made to allow students and teachers interact with each other and allow the students to have fun uploading homework. However, it is a very inefficient platform. What could be done on paper in 5-10 minutes, it takes over 25-45 minutes for my kid to do the work. We ended up just printing everything out, making them do it on paper, then uploading the picture of their work instead of doing the work in the app, because it was just taking too long. Here are some of my chief complaints and improvements desired: 1. While I understand why the worksheet uploaded by the teachers are an image file (so that the kids can't edit it) because of this feature, they are forced to draw text boxes to fill in the blanks. because the text boxes automatically come in a larger size, students are forced to type everything up, close the text option, use the select option, then resize the text. Would it not be easier for the teacher to be able to upload a pdf version and then convert the platform into a pdf writer with drawing capabilities? 2. The app and website are both buggy. The website lags terribly and it is impossible to do any work on it. The app crashes every so often, doesn't save frequently (its a kids app, it should save automatically after every change), so students are forced to do the work over and over again. 3. The text box function. I am sorry to bring this up again, but it is terrible. It's worse than paint. It should have an option of selecting text size, but instead the default text size is a poster size. navigating the text box in itself is a challenge. It isn't intuitive for a tech savvy parent, let alone a grade-schooler. 4. There is a constant pop-up that comes out that tells you to update your app, when I have the most updated version. Seems like other people are having this issue, so hopefully it will get ironed out. All in all, I appreciate the concept, but it definitely needs work.

Overall a great app for distance learning. I like that all of the classroom settings that we can control. I also like that I can include voice instructions. Its really frustrating how it translates differently on different devices. My second graders cant use the links I put to songs I want them to dance to because our school gave them iPads. When they click on the links they go nowhere. It's been frustrating experience for parents. Also why can't I post a video and a file or link?
