Ratings and Reviews
Good app, but needs just a few improvements.
I am a third grade teacher, and love to use this app. It makes my life so much easier when trying to navigate students to an app or website. When I use it and lock the app, so students can’t close it and get on something else it works beautifully. If I try and lock it on a website, students can click out of it. Students can click icons at the bottom of the webpages and manipulate their way out of the website to others. Needs to stop them if the address doesn’t contain the prefix to that website they were locked on. The other thing that would be helpful is an icon students can click on to send the teacher a message and vice versa, but not each other.
We did not agree to this.
I am a student at a school that uses iPads in the classroom, and so they use this too. I completely understand how they would feel the need to use this on students, since iPads can be often misused in educational settings. I personally would never be “off task” in class, and I signed the contract. The contract listed the rules, such as the locking and opening of iPads and viewing of screens. However, what we didn’t agree to was the modification of the iPad apps once class was over. Now, after school, I am prompted with an Allow Notifications window every time I launch a different app, and my folders are now black. I also can’t name the folders. Well, that’s past tense. Recently, when our teacher switched us into a different app while we were still locked, everything was fine. But, when we got back to the Home screen, the whole class had to start organizing all the apps again. All the apps were scattered around, and on my 128GB iPad, I now have to organize for hours. Well, for a stupid glitch that isn’t supposed to happen on a “management app” And then when it happens again, I’ll have to do the same, over and over again. Please fix this. It’s getting so annoying.
Great, when it works
No, I as a teacher cannot STALK my students. I can only see what they have on their screens. If they aren't doing things they shouldn't be doing they have no need to worry about it.
Unfortunately the app doesn't always work. It worked well for all my classes for the first week of classes, now suddenly everyone is "offline." I've checked several students' iPads and they have Bluetooth enabled and they are on the school wi-fi. I'm not sure what the problem is and why it occurred suddenly. At this point the app is useless.
