Awful App, truly awful...
Update: Parents are lobbying the school to get them to drop using this god awful app and go back to Show My Homework. The developers of Sims should be ashamed of themselves.
Can’t open links for homework or attachments so nothing can be printed or viewed. Makes life even more stressful for students (and parents). App constantly signing out so don’t get notifications, or get random notifications even though there’s nothing to view. Students unable to mark their own homework as “submitted” so if their already busy teachers don’t do it, there’s a constant list of “overdue” homework, even though there isn’t. I can’t believe this is even used as a viable app. DREADFUL.
Dismally poor quality app
Apps like this should never be inflicted on the public. Schools should be required to insist on appropriate user acceptability test evidence before obliging parents to sign up. I have to uninstall and reinstall the app each time I want to use it. Otherwise, it gives no option other than “Sign in with SIMS ID”, which as expressly instructed by school we should NOT use, so I dutifully, though reluctantly, used my PERSONAL (!!) Twitter account to sign up initially. I have two kids at different schools both using this pathetic excuse of an app. Waste of everyone’s time.
I can’t believe this app has been released with so many issues. How did it even get through the testing phase?
Have only been able to log in once and even then it took ages. Since that initial login it just sticks on loading screen and then eventually times out with an “ooops” error message. Can’t see any homework so no idea what has been set or it due. The student version is just as terrible. Bring back Show My Homework as this app is horrendous. If the school are paying for this then they should be demanding a refund.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
