Ratings and Reviews
Could be better
I like the app for the most part. The idea is great but I don’t need my calendar being full of activities other year groups are doing. Or constant pop up reminders. I want these for the years of my children only so for me, to get this to a 5 star review, would need a setting to allow filtering of year groups for calendars and pop up notifications. Hoping the developer takes note here, I’m sure a lot of people would like this.
Good, but year group opt-in needed
Love that the school’s events sync with your phone calendar, but a year-group opt-in that can be easily changed each Sept would make this app a 5-star product.
Having two children at the school currently c50% of event info is of no interest. When our oldest leaves next year that will increase to 75%. At the moment I delete irrelevant appointments out of my phone, but the app still sends reminders for things we don’t need to know about.
Overall it is a great way for parents to keep up with school events and info and I’m sure it has prevented people ringing school to ask about dates as they are so easily available in the app.
A good start, but refinements needed.
Definitely recommend this app
Very good App for info, news, links to social media, website, etc. It updates my phone‘s calendar automatically. And I find it especially helpful that all important contact details are just there as well as letters to parents.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
