Yet another app added for school communication. Not this apps fault, but just a note that our school systems really need to consolidate and reduce complexity!
The signup process for this was bugged for me- blank pages on their website. Support responded fast enough but only suggested to use the app to sign up. That worked.
The app itself shows a badge for 27 notifications but inside the app doesn’t give any indication where those are. I went through every single message (20+) that already existed and was able to bring it down to 11. I disabled app badges for this as a result.
The message scrolling is also a bit jerky compared to other apps. I would assume it’s because it hasn’t been optimized for iOS 14 yet.
Doesn’t seem to be any way to break out individual class messages by a topic. It’s all just one long text chain. This may be fine for 1to1 conversations, but when 25+ people are talking for an entire school year, this is going to be really convoluted.
Not a great experience so far, but I’ll admit my opinion is clouded due to being forced into using yet another messaging/communication app.
Things to work out
When you click on a notification in iOS for this app, it takes you to a load screen that doesn’t load. You have to back out. Drag down to reload and go back in.
Sending takes a long time and you can’t leave the app while it sends.
Adding people to a new conversation is cumbersome and requires many taps or clicks. Sometimes the list of available people loads very slowly or not at all.
Pictures take a very long time to send.
Both in app and online, new messages don’t show up unless you refresh the page or message window. You may get a notification for a conversation that you are looking at and see no message.
Problem with latest upgrade
I upgraded the app and now it doesn’t work at all. Just freezes on the opening screen. Gave it three stars because it worked well enough before the upgrade. But now it’s useless.
