Ratings and Reviews
Poor Navigation and more
First - navigation stinks. Try to search. Once you enter the Search feature, the only way out is to kill the app.
More annoying, the requirement to have your iPhones Location Services on to use the app.
I have an older phone and Location Services is a drag on the battery life. If I have subscribed, what does Location Services have to do with getting school generated alerts? Where I am, or the app knowing where I am at that moment, should NEVER keep me from getting an alert.
I will stick to web portal through my child’s school system website.
Highly disappointed user.
I NEVER write reviews but this app is so useless and frustrating that I had to comment. Signing up was easy enough as was finding my town, but then it all went south. I can’t select any emergency notifications and when I try to do it on my laptop it doesn’t accept my password. sticking with it I try to reset my password only to be asked security questions I’ve never set up. An hour of my life I’ll never get back and am still not on any notification list
App & Online problems
The app won’t let me log on anymore, it keeps saying my password is wrong. When I go on their website & hit “Forgot password” it gives me a security question to answer & that question is not one I picked out, I would never pick it out. Then the one I do recognize “Name of first pet?” When I put the answer in it tells me I am wrong. It only gives those two questions so I have no way into my account.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
