To keep up with the continuous changes which Apple makes, we have decided to remove the manage students/ groups functionality in the application.
What does this mean for you?
If you have used the app to add students or groups in the past year or so, you will now need to delete these students/groups in the iPad Teacher application and then and add them back using www.lexlogin.com. You may use the same username and password you have always used to access the app.
Rest assured that students can still use the iPad App with the username and password that you have given them.
You may also choose to not update the app but there are no guarantees that the app will continue to work as apple changes its operating system constantly.
● Removed a lot of redundant code
● Fixed games
● Updated to latest iOS requirements
Ratings and Reviews
This app is really good, however for 5.99 a month it is way too expensive since the content rarely changes.
Developer Response ,
The Social Express is a comprehensive social skills program which may be needed for some individuals for 1 month or 1 year until they have gained the benefits from the program. Therefore your monthly fee is to access the content until you no longer need it. You may cancel anytime. We give you the option of a monthly license or an annual so you have flexibility on how much time you need.
Susbscription-based apps are a no go
So sad that this is the "replacement" for the Social Express app I purchased, which was then removed from the App Store. This "replacement" equals similar content, except you pay into eternity to be able to access what you once had for a one-time fee. Those of us who used our dollars to purchase the original app (and it was not a cheap app) should have been given a LIFETIME subscription, since the app was removed from the App Store with little warning, and no recourse. Please fix this situation, the content is decent but there is a bad taste in my mouth...

Hello and thank you for your feedback. We are concerned that your complaint is not validated as you discuss the new content for the subscription, but you have you actually purchased the subscription? The original app featured 16 lessons, the new program has 81 lessons yes the original 16 are included but all else are new. Futhermore, we have created student logins and full data analytics to track progress none of this was part of the original application. WE do offer a lifetime discount of 50% off the new app should you contact us for the promo code. We had hoped our original app would keep working but ios11 killed it and many other apps as well.
I really felt like the original APP applied to so many students. I used it often and was surprised when it stopped working with the update. I could not figure out why when I had already purchased the app. I would purchase the new APP and understand that it has more stories/scenarios, but can’t do a monthly fee thru the school district. This monthly fee makes it difficult to access. I am so disappointed. You may be losing lots of purchasers due to the monthly fee.

Hello and thank you for your comment. There is an annual option to purchase the program as well.
