Ratings and Reviews
Has potential but nothing is polished
This app has great potential, it COULD be great but it seems they just don't care about polishing the features they have before adding new ones.
Things like disclosure arrows being hidden under things, numbers on the login pad not being center aligned and other janky UI scattered around the place. My partner also has sleep timers that update on her iPhone 8 but they do not on my iPhone 6.
Incessant nagging about location services gets pretty old too. The location services don't even work for me anyway and shouldn't actually be required when Bluetooth is perfectly capable and has worked perfectly in the past before an update required GPS and it now no long works on my iPhone 6. I'm forced to use a computer to log my child in instead of the app. It was always a bit rocky whether it would work or not but there was a period before Bluetooth location was disabled and it was flawless. Needless to say that only lasted about 2 weeks.
All that said, it's a good foundation, I just hope they look at what they're doing and improve the UX before bloating the app with more half baked features.
Childcare centres DONT CHOOSE THIS APP, ITS BIZARRE AND COMPLICATED.
After installing the app, putting in a email address and password, you are able to load a PIN. So far so good, and was able to see a previous sign out of my child. The app wants both bluetooth and GPS turned on (why?) and a cellular connection. OK. Now - you go to sign in - it asks do you want to sign in at <particular childcare centre> and you click YES. You go off to the sign in panel, and click unresponsively on the screen. There is very little on the screen that looks clickable. That's as far as you get. Kill the app, same thing. So give up on that, try using the ipad the childcare centre has setup. Put in your phone number, put in your PIN. Doesn't work. Put in your email, put in your password. Doesn't work. Now you would think being an IT professional - with an iOS app in the app store - would give one a certain advantage in this area. But no. A bizarre, complicated app best steered clear of.
Poorly designed app
This is a poorly designed app. I use it only because my kids childcare uses it, but otherwise it would have been long gone from my phone. I constantly have different issues with this app.
If you don’t know the app, it is hard to navigate, for example, the buttons are hidden by the photos posted. You learn to know where the buttons are, because quite often they are not visible.
The FaceID locks your phone if the last app you used was Xplor. The phone gets in a seemingly endless loop of unlocking with FaceID. This doesn’t happen with other apps that allow FaceID. How to solve it? Disable FaceID for this app.
