Updated for the Fifth Edition of the Foundations Curriculum!
Ratings and Reviews
We use it often, but it could improve
We love CC! We also use this app a lot for our review time. However, I dislike that the audio starts as soon as you choose your subject and week. I have to quickly hit pause if using it in class. I also dislike the fact that the app has not been updated with the new Presidents song. The song is available for free on CC connected, however it hasn't been updated on the app. Getting on CC connected requires having an internet connection and sometimes even then, the link doesn't work. So having the updated song on the app would be very helpful and would be easy to update the app with it. I do agree with the other reviewer when it comes to CC making $$ of selling new curriculum. It seems like CC should offer a trade in like IEW did! IEW was so generous when they updated their TWSS. I hope that when CC switches to the new foundations guide that they will update the apps also instead of creating new one and making us buy them over again. I don't mind the tuition costs, because I know it goes to paying the tutor, director, SR and so on.
Nice tool but falls short in key areas
The CC app is a nice tool to use on community days for review of individual topics and the content is pretty great. That said it is lacking a few crucial features and falls well short of being user friendly when used at home for review.
A few added features could make this app absolutely amazing! The best change that could be made to this app would be a repeat feature that would allow the user to loop/continuously play their choice of individual topics or an entire week without having to babysit the app. As it is now I have to constantly be on top of the button to hit play every 10 seconds.
Classical Conversations is great for homeschooling but this app falls well short of being user friendly when used at home.
It could be so much better...
I hope this doesn’t sound too critical but my mind is bursting with ideas on how this could be so much better! For $15 bucks I was expecting something pretty amazing. (I mean, what app out there costs that much?!) Instead, you get something that looks like a power point presentation (you skip to the next slide for each week’s memory work in different subjects). Yes— a power point with clip art and 1990s font and colors. The content is good and “does the trick”...yes, it aids with CC memory work but it could be so much better as far as inspiring wonder, and being beautiful as well as more interactive and user friendly. Time to update to 2019! People buy this because it has the content they need for their child to learn, but it could be SO MUCH BETTER! Also, by way of price... make your CC apps an average price for an app, and charge for “in app purchases” just like everyone else does. Or, better yet, charge CC families $5 a month for use of apps. But first, you gotta make it worth it!
