Much work to do!

The last update partially fixed the display of homework as in it would only load and display when you turn the phone into landscape and back to portrait! However, it’s still sporadic and still needs fixing.
The most annoying ‘feature’ is the insistence on sending multiple notifications for the same single message. Today I received 5 notifications in 4 minutes for a single school bulletin message!
Don’t get me wrong, pretty much all of these school homework apps are rubbish and so you’re all on a level playing field, what’s annoying is that there are so many users for these apps yet there seems to be so little support to update and improve them or to listen to the feedback to do the same.

Great idea but frustrating app

A simple idea (communication between school and parents) so poorly executed that it actually causes more confusion. No-one appears to have considered the volume of interactions (we receive) from schools so finding a ‘recent’ message (or is it a bookmark??) that you noted but wanted to read at another time is almost impossible to locate. Viewing a letter (pdf) is quite a drawn out process, the app simply cannot seem to render some pages (usually tasks) on mobile devices (although it can have some success if you flip your phone to landscape) and now I even find that the view of outstanding work is not synchronised so my parent’s view of tasks differs significantly from my daughters.

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!
