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.

Please make the default Android back/exit button and swipe gesture work. I get that apple products only use in-app back/exit buttons... But this is Android and this is my only app I've used in the past 2 years that doesn't go to the previous screen if I swipe back or hit the default button. There's many other things that's are really frustrating about this app but man, the tedious as all heck need to reach across the ENTIRE screen just to go back is nonsense.

1. I need to be able to add multiple photos at once. 2. I need the notifications and inbox to be separate. 3. I need do not disturb/out of the office hours. 4. I need captions to go back to how they used to be. It's harder to add them now. 5. I need add a photo to go back to go it used to be. You added one additional step to add a photo from device which is time consuming. Please separate add from drive/device/etc. again. 6. There are numerous other things I'd change about Seesaw itself.
