Seesaw Is The Best

I like seesaw because my friends my teacher and Mum and dad can see what work I have done in class because I am forgetful so on seesaw my teacher tells in the comments what the work is all about. SEESAW IS THE BEST!!!!! Some people may think that seesaw is a waste of time in your day but I think that is a great app to use especially when you are vey forgetfull and you don’t come home and tell your parents about your day because you completely forget about your day at school. So when you post something on seesaw your teacher will approve your work and then say down in the comments what is is all abot what you are learning about in class. SO THATS WHY I GIVE SEESAW FIVE STARS OF RATING.

Old version is better

As a student, I use Seesaw very frequently. There were ever-so-slight bugs in the previous version, which I didn’t mind. However, when this update came, my work became 2 times as hard. First off, before, when you swipe out of the app during an activity, when you come back it says: ‘You have unfinished work. Do you want to continue where you left off? Edit or Delete’. Now that function is removed. Because of this, I had to start over on my English Assessment. Furthermore, typing is more difficult. Copying and pasting is far more complicated now, and just trying to edit a text box is annoying. Sometimes the flashing line shows that you are editing a text box, but there is no keyboard. You can’t edit the text box because of that. Then you have to go to a different slide, and if the text box is not saved (it’s new) then it’s deleted. This is especially annoying if I’m typing a long paragraph and it gets deleted. My final problem the new way things work. I liked the old one. The messages look weird, the animation of entering a text box is ugly and it’s just overall worse. Please do something to fix AT LEAST ONE of the problems I listed, or I will steal your cookies.

Seesaw is not the best

I am a student currently using seesaw and this app is great accept for a few things.
The first thing is that there are things on the side and bottom that allow you to change from writing something to drawing and ect this is great but the problem I have with this is that it often gets in the way of reading things that are on the side or bottom behind it. What I am saying is that you should make a way to hide it and bring it back.
The second thing that annoys me about this app is that the bar that pops up on the right side of your phone to change the colour of text or your pencil is witch NEVER GOES AWAY and it blocks a lot of my vision of the screen. Maybe this problem could be fixed if I had a phone with a bigger screen but I don’t.
The third and final thing that I want changed about this app is that you can not change the brush size when using any one of the drawing tools. To fix this problem you could maybe make it so if you hold your finger on a drawing tool at the bottom of the screen then it will bring up a options menu.
I hope this app gets better so I can give it a 5 star review.
Edit: maybe also change it so when someone who is not the teacher comments on your work it doesn’t count as a notification because at the moment I get a ton of notifications of classmates commenting something irrelevant to me or my work (and they don’t even comment on my work and I still get the notifications.).
