Inability to zoom in on multiple images

I Love this app! The school use it to communicate our children’s daily activities or big daily/weekly events, tours and excursions as they happen. You can literally be a fly on the wall! 😉

My only complaint is that when they post one image, you have the ability to tap to open it and zoom in (helpful if you'd like to pick your child out of a crowd). But, if they post multiple images in the same post, when you tap on the images you can scroll through them, but not zoom in!? Please can you look at this!!! Would love a fix.

Thanks for Seesaw

It’s wonderful to be able to see what my three grandkids are doing at school (in almost real time) from Australia. I miss them so much and don’t know when I’ll be able to see them so Seesaw helps me feel closer to them. As a retired primary school teacher I am also very interested in the work they are doing. I’m impressed by the wonderful opportunities they have to experience a wide range of learning opportunities.
Thank you
Kate Devitt.

App Limitations

The App is a good idea but has limitations that developers need to work through as follows:
1. The App does not allow to turn off notifications for each time someone “likes” a pinned video, photo or message. So, you keep getting highly annoying pings.
2. When a notification arrives that an item was updated, it’s not straight away evident what changes were made, so you have to go through every single slide looking carefully what has changed, and whether quotation marks have had a slight change in colour meaning there’s a comment hiding in that slide. Seriously. Sometimes I cannot tell what was updated and what my attention is being drawn to.
