Ratings and Reviews
Every parent best friend
I check Tapestry more than any other app on my phone lol. I absolutely love it to see all the updates of what my child is doing, pictures and videos. I also enjoy the conversation we can have with the other parents and all. It’s brilliant 🙂
Developer Response ,
We're so glad to hear you love using Tapestry! Thank you for taking the time review the app. :)
If you provide it in the website please provide in the app.
I’ve just started using this app which my my daughters school uses, thinking this would be great for when I’m at work and commuting etc. It’s nice to see the observations and comment on what she has been doing.
However, it doesn’t have everything the website does. You have to log in through the website via the computer to access documents, which is a hassle when out and about or if I’m not near my own computer. Its also runs everything in a time-line which is frustrating. There’s no separate tab for memos, activities, observations so you have to scroll. It’s doesn’t feel complete or organised.
Our our old school used a much more comprehensive app that was easier to use to find everything that was also accessible on the website.
If I’m honest yes I love the observations, but I really need the the app for the memos, activities and documents for when I have forgotten something! It’s not particularly user friendly.
There is potential - please keep working on it.
I love tapestry!
The features it provides for practitioners is amazing, exactly what every setting needs. Learning journals, send framework, day diary’s, 2 year progress checks and summative assessments, just naming some of them.
However, the app limits you from soooo much! You can only upload observations, which is quick and easy, I admit. But if you could add a day diary on there and progress checks, it means my staff can also have a quick and efficient way of uploading other reports. As you know it is difficult to find time to do these, so convenience is the key. I am finding easy paper tools which are not environmentally friendly to offer my staff the easiest way to document, which needs to be fit into their crazy day of nappy changing, snacks and craft activities.
The app would be perfect if there was an extra drop down.
