Download this app to stay connected and it tells me the website can’t be found. I got happy when I seen this app on Steve Harvey Show but I can’t even do anything. It’s not working but I thought it would be s great app.

I wish

I could give this app more stars but it doesn’t seem to be working most of the time. You can’t send pics through the actual app you have to go to connect which takes you to a webpage. But the webpage never opens up it just keeps saying server can not be found. I really want to support this app but so far it has just been super frustrating. Please fix so I can give it a better rating. The idea is phenomenal. It just needs to work

Does Not Work—Did It Ever Work

Looking through the other reviews, it’s clear that this app hasn’t been working for at least a year. It downloads fine, but once you click “Get Started” it takes you to a webpage that never loads. It’s a great, generous concept, but it does not work. It should be removed from the app store if it isn’t fixed. It’s causing people who want to keep in touch with incarcerated parents more heartache.
