The BEST app for education

This app is highly recommended, I personally think every school should use this app, it’s easy to go to websites, documents, books or anything you want in just a couple of clicks. Also, what really matters, is that there are no distracting adds all over the place like some apps have, that are distracting young kids from their tasks. To teachers, you really need this app for a easy life working for a school, it really helps

Ruined by a stupid update

I loved the old version so much and it helped a lot but now they added an update that was clearly made over night my school isn’t even here and I legit live it city and my school is the largest in my city yet it’s not on here I spent ages trying to get help but the creators clearly don’t care enough. This was a good app and it didn’t need to be changed and a update is supposed to make an app better but this completely destroyed it would not recommend this app until it’s fixed, even the people who have there school on it struggle with bugs that the creators are to lazy to fix, absolutely lost my respect and they changed it during the time you couldn’t go to school bc of covid so I couldn’t check work teachers emailed me e.t.c. Would have given a 5/5 star rating if this update didn’t occur, the original was SO much better it annoys me

Bring back the old feature version

It is disappointing that the new updated version is not really convenient, especially the display of activity stream (announcements). Much better with the old version, where the updates are displayed straight away rather than have to multiple click to get the updated news! It is also more convenient with just “One Click” to get access to the regarding units rather than have to go to the units sections again for quick access. I wish I can downgrade the apps. The updated version should be more useful and convenient for access rather than difficult/complicated. I wish I could not have done the updates. Hope this can be considered by the team.
