Ratings and Reviews
Are we here just to suffer?
At a surface level, this app creates a facade that it’s very functional and well organised, however, it’s it just one massive heap of technical issues.
The worst offender is the notification/read function which 100% of the time is always broken. Either the developers don’t care, or they just want us to punish us.
Tasks you’ve marked as done send you notifications to do them, tasks from years ago decide to mark themselves as ‘to do’ with no reason.
Sometimes you get a notification for a task before you can even access it, whereas other times it just decides it’s never going to inform you.
You’d think the updates would gradually weed out all the bugs... nope... occasionally they even make them worse. Last update made it so that every time you refreshed the page, it would set every. Single. Task. Back to ‘unread’ and they just... never fixed it.
Some tasks you can never actually mark as done as the teacher themselves have to archive them (which they never do) so they just sit there forever.
And just to top it all off, 90% of all the functions are only available on the website, so this app is absolutely useless.
The only people I would recommend this app to, would be people who want to look popular in class, because my phone is vibrating so much that I might actually offset a 7.0 earthquake. But apart from that, nobody should have to touch this app with a 10 foot stick.
This app it terrible for a number of reasons too long to list but here are a few of the problems. First of all when I mark things as done it quite often undoes that so I have to delete the app and get it again only to find the same problem so I go onto my laptop and it says that i need to submit a file which I have already done. Secondly tasks that I have done ages ago suddenly light up to say that they have been edited but the have not then I have to scroll down every single task to find the light up ones. Thirdly I am very annoyed that you cannot delete tasks that you were set last year so you have to scroll all the way down to the bottom to find out what marks you got. Also I was annoyed to find that you cannot delete picture that you have sent because i accidentally sent 2 of all of the work I had done and found out I could not just delete the doubles this also leaves me with the worry that I will send the wrong picture. The final point that I will make is that if my teacher marks a piece of work then I have to scroll all the way down to the bottom to find it this is very annoying.
Honestly do not get this app I would delete it in a second if my school didn’t make us have it.
It would help if...
You could delete comments/files/audio messages sent to your teacher. Sometimes (we have all done it) you send a message to the wrong person and why should it be any different with firefly? Sadly there is no delete option which is the only reason for not getting 5 stars. Also, quite recently, after I check a message a teacher has sent I keep receiving the notification for that message over and over again. It is really annoying. Please fix. Also some teachers send files as attachments and it says that they are too big. Please update your storage firefly. At the start of getting the app (it was essential for homework) I was very disappointed as the app is VERY basic. If you could maybe add more features to the app so that we do not have to go onto the google page to view homework tasks. I’m very annoyed with firefly as the must have seen that they only have 1.7 stars at the moment, so they should actually do something about it rather than leaving it as it is because it is NOT good enough at the moment.
