Ratings and Reviews
A promising start
Bunk1 has truly taken it's web-based site into the 21st century with this app. It is so user friendly and intuitive allowing me to view and favorite photos on my phone with ease. As for bunk notes, they have never been so easy for an on the go person as myself. I do wish the purchasing more credits option was app based instead of redirecting to Safari. Also a next step may be even being able to purchase the photos on the app, using Apple's IPay feature... That would be cool! But all in good time. So far an awesome start. Looking forward to the newest updates!
Quite possibly the worst $5 app ever!
What a kluge-fest! There are millions of free apps that are far more capable and reliable. It's slow, but that's the least of its flaws.
This app crashes regularly when resumed from sleep, but not until you push Send. Then *poof* it's gone and it doesn't save anything when it crashes, so your message is history. Inexcusably, the text entry screen doesn't scroll (really!) so you can write maybe 5 or 6 little lines of text on your note before your typing disappears from view and you can no longer check or edit it. This is a serious flaw, more so given the proclivity of iPhones to autocorrect.
If this was a free app acknowledged to be in beta testing, maybe it wouldn't seem so awful, but paying $5 for the app to use a service I'm already paying for?! and then have it be essentially non-functional?! If I could give it negative 1 stars, I would. Don't waste your money on this piece of junk, stick with the Bunk 1 website.
UPDATE: After complaining bluntly to them through the contact us link on the web site, I actually got a responsive email that thanked us for the feedback and credited us the cost of the app (thank you!) plus a couple of extra Bunk 1 credits (pretty useless, but at least a gesture). Kudos to them for responsive customer service.
Very disappointing - Don’t download
The only very small value in this app is the ease of sending bunk notes, but this can done just as easy by logging onto the camp website. From what I read on the Camp Liognier website there is only one photographer so I recognize our child wouldn’t likely be in many pictures. However, I find it difficult to understand how most of the pictures of all the campers are either out of focus, not zoomed it appropriately, or taken from bizzare angles. So far almost every picture taken of our child is of his back. This makes the facial recognition useless. In addition there are zero Activity or Newsletter updates which make these completely useless as well. The designers should be ashamed of themselves for developing such a poor app
Developer Response ,
Thanks for passing along this feedback! While our app offers you an easy way to send Bunk Notes, read Bunk Replies from your camper, and view photos that camp posts, our team does not create content, take photos, or send updates on the camp's behalf. While Camp Ligonier wants to make sure every parent feels connected with camp, we've reached out to your camp to help them share more content with you. We'd love it if you would give our app another try and let us know what we can improve on our end!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
