Ratings and Reviews
This is not a good app.
This app was never very good, and it is not maintained frequently enough for it to be functional.
It is difficult to get to my grades; the app makes me log in every time I use it, and the interface is cluttered with unnecessary resources. I have downloaded myMCPS+, which is a far better app, but I am still frustrated that this app does not work. It won’t even let me log in anymore, on the rare occasion that it actually loads the login screen.
The other review is condescending and somewhat judgmental, so let me say this: I am a student, not a parent. I am no tech wizard, but I am far from technologically incompetent. I am not complaining because I thought Edline was better or because I don’t feel like learning a new layout. I am complaining because this app is bad and does not work.
I am not sure what the reviewers below are complaining about that Edline was better. Edline was clunky and had less information. But more so, the MyMCPS app function much like modern informations apps do. There are numerous options beyond Edline as well. The options are clear and to the point, often providing compliment information under titles, including teacher names, class grades, or other scores. It may seem like a lot to keep clicking to go deeper into a subject, but there is a wealth of information under each options. Links are also present under several options that can take you to other sections.
From my experience, the complainers are parents who do not move forward with technology and get irritated that something changed, and they want to keep things as they have always been because progress only means what is comfortable with them. Change things up and get them having to think and this translates into a bad something and nothing but negatives. Anyone who keeps up with technology should not find this app difficult to use and informative, even if it can be repetitive for the sake of convenience.
The result of budget cuts
In terms of simplicity, Edline was so much better. As a middle school student, when I was first introduced to edline, it instantaneously fell into place. I used the third party Edline Helper app as my primary grade checker on my phone and iPad. Now, myMcps, isn't so easy to get used to. First off, when I want to check my grades, am instantly reminded of my gross yearbook picture I took that looked horrible. As a typical female, aesthetics are very important to me. But my Vaseline face is just so darn distracting. But the app in general is okay, but edline helper was straight to the point. But on so many other aspects, this app was much better than Edline's. first off, I love how in one app, I can get access to a wide variety of things, from the weekly school newsletter, to the lunch schedule. Also, I can access google classroom, which is always great for those select classes that the teacher loves the Google ecosystem. For others, it may seem distracting, but I am quite fond of it. Moving a little away from the app, I have to say, the URL for mymcps for grade checking is kind of hard to memorize. I now have to keep it as a bookmark. For edline, the URL was pretty easy to type.
