PLEASE NOTE: This app is for TEACHERS. NOT STUDENTS. We cannot respond to your reviews or comments here. If you have tech support questions or improvement questions, you need to contact our office for technical support otherwise your comments are essentially ignored.
ALSO: The barcode scanning functionality is not meant to replace a real barcode reader. The barcode process on the phone is slow, cumbersome, and can be inaccurate. We know this. It uses the camera, not a laser. But it's there in case you need it in an emergency. But it will not replace the use of a regular barcode reader.
If you are expecting the barcode portion of the app to be magical, we are sorry to disappoint you. But it's a phone, not a laser scanner.
Charms Mobile offers the administrator of a Charms account access to many functions on their mobile devices, including student records, inventory lists, attendance, student recordings, library searches, financial reports, and lots more. It also includes a barcode component for checking in and checking out Uniform and Inventory items, as well as checking in students for attendance tracking.
- Update to handle the case where the user doesn't have the barcode features enabled

OK App. Rude owner.
The app functions. When you search for a kid and hit "Go", it returns to the full list.....what?
Also, read the description of the app (unless they've changed it out of shame). They call bad reviewers whiny little children who don't know how to ask for help. What is that? If people have problems with the app (which are REAL issues), don't insult them in your app description.
Not Actually Bad
Despite some bad reviews previously, the app works perfectly fine for me and others I know. Never had major problems logging in and staying logged in (it should be noted - this app is for TEACHER/helper use. It is not the parent/student portal). It is a great extension of the Charms program. It could use some improvements, but it is effective at what it does and is very helpful for on-the-go reference and communication. If there is something you can't get it work, odds are opening Charms in your browser on your mobile device will work well enough. It is a work in progress and I have good hopes for it!
Worked, but no longer works with iOS 11
It was clunky, but it mostly worked. However now, after my iPhone has updated to the next OS, charms doesn't have an update to keep up. ☹️
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
