Ratings and Reviews
Just got it setup as part of our school’s rollout. Good idea but app is lacking certain basics. Could not see any option to login to my account on website to load our schedule, which would have certainly been easier than the app. Cannot set a recurring schedule for multiple days of a week, so I wound up doing each day of the week as a weekly recurrence. Once you set up a recurring delegation, remarkably you cannot edit it — only possible to cancel one date or cancel the series. All the pop ups are painful.
Will report back after we actually have to use this...
Hunger games in the lot. Do not use this
Unless your school has 2 kids in it, this app will crash as soon as parents try to announce their arrival. Took 1.5 hours to get all of the elementary aged kids out of my kid’s small school. The system crashed as soon school let out. Save yourself the trouble and do not even mess with this junk heap! If there were a negative star option, this would be the time to use it. I’ve never reviewed anything in my life, so that should give you some indication as to how bad this was. Trust me and stay away. Our school’s parking lot was like the hunger games. Parents were blocking the road, there was a giant game of snake happening in the church parking lot south of the school. People were cutting in cars and narrowly avoiding fender benders...can’t say enough. It was pandemonium. I’m sure the developers are nice folks, they just created an app that just doesn’t work.
Good concept, until you think about it
I have three main issues with the app: First, it needs a few more development cycles to add all the functions it needs to match reality. The way the app is currently set up, my family needs to have a discussion every afternoon to determine who is picking up the kids so I can enter the correct person into the app. If I’m in a meeting and miss the deadline, oh well.
Second, human nature is to wait as little as possible. In less than a week, people at our school have already figured out how to cheat the system to jump the car lines.
Finally, it is a crime to be using a cell phone while driving in a school zone. I’m supposed to watch traffic, kids, look for the stop sign and fumble with this app? Just not a good idea.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
