Does half the job
Key functionality is missing from this app
I can log in easily, and all linked accounts appear correctly as they would if I logged into the website which is good.
The interface to top up balances is good and the alert system also appears to have improved (however these cannot be set per linked account so I’m not sure if the single limit set would apply to each individual account or the sum of all of them?).
However once my money was deposited in the accounts I can’t find an option to order school meals through the app and had to resort to logging back into the website (and the associated clunky web controls when using iOS devices) to order this months menu options for the kids.
Is ordering meals functionality in development? Seems like a major oversight occurred when the functional specifications were defined for this app.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. This initial version of the App delivers the key functionality required by our secondary schools (who don't order meals). We’re now working with a number of pilot schools to scope out the requirements for the next phase which will include some of the additional functionality required by our primary users such as online meal/session ordering and parents evening booking and look forward to making this available in a future release.
Not fit for purpose
I normally use Scopay on a laptop but was out when I got a call from my daughter asking for a top up. Downloaded the app onto my iPhone and managed to navigate my way around with no problems. Then I got to the checkout and found it totally unusable from there on. The interface to input your card details is way too small and you can’t stretch it with two fingers. You can’t see your card details as you enter them as the screen is white. When you do find your way back to the field it just says “hidden” so you can’t check what you’ve input. Not sure what happened next but my basket was suddenly empty. Ended up texting daughter back telling her to wait half an hour till I could get to my laptop. For an app that’s supposed to allow you to pay for things the most important screen, I.e. the payment interface, is totally unfit for purpose. Thoroughly unimpressed.

**Update** We have now released a fix for the issue when entering card details that you raised, which is available through version 1.2.0 of the App. We'd encourage you to double check the version of the App that you are running and hope that this gives you an improved user experience. Please do let us know if this is not the case via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can investigate.
Dear Mamadabs – thank you for downloading our new App and for your feedback. In your child’s case, the display of the payment pages is based on settings on the school’s own third party payment provider account. We’re working with schools and payment providers to enable the mobile pages to ensure that they display appropriately for all mobile device types in the future.
Could be better
I’ve been using this app since before the summer holidays. It has made booking clubs a lot easier for me however there is room for improvement.
My children attend breakfast and after school club daily and recently my daughter was off school ill, so of course didn’t attend the clubs. We as parents have no way of cancelling or amending club bookings once made. I had to speak to the office staff to do this. Why can’t this be a function of the app and/or website? I would be happier knowing that I have full control over the bookings and can amend when necessary.
When will booking clubs be introduced in the app? Rather pointless having an app when you have to go between two interfaces to make full use of this function.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
