Like everyone else on here I have had major issues using this app for about the last 4-6 weeks. My son started secondary school in September and the app worked well initially and I was really impressed. Then it just stopped 🥴. I reported it to the school’s IT who got in touch with Firefly. First they said they had released an update to fix the problem. So I deleted the app & reinstalled it. Worked for about 5 mins. When I told school they got back to firefly who then said they had no idea what the issue was AND WERE UNAWARE THAT ANYONE ELSE HAD A PROBLEM!!! Obviously they don’t read their reviews!

App not opening on iPhone

Firefly worked like a dream for the last 2 academic years . This year I have had constant problems with the app opening to a blank screen on iPhone almost daily . I have to uninstall then load it again and even then it will crash later that day to a blank screen . Very annoying and frustrating. Please sort it out . Friends also having same problems on iPhone .

Needs a lot of work

It’s a good idea to have all your child’s information at your fingertips but man, there are some major issues here.
1) when the child marks things as done or updates tasks on the web it takes ages for this to appear in the app, leading to confusion. You might think that dragging down and refreshing the task list might work. No
2) On initial setup of the app it took me about 5 minutes to sync all the tasks. This is just bonkers.
3) lots of other minor but annoying UI quirks and flaws.

I think some re-architecture of the app and how it works would really help, or I fear many will not use it, or worse it will cause stress and confusion for parents.
