Ratings and Reviews
Won’t load information anymore
Similar to another reviewer, I am also having the experience of being able to open the app, only to have it refuse to load any data. Next to each category, it just spins. The app used to be pretty useful, but no matter what I do now, it no longer works.
Really Awful UX/UI experience
I like the idea of what my child is doing, but this parent app is awful. Looks good on first inspection, but trying to use it is a bad and frustrating experience. First button placement is horrible, beginning with the bottom navigation. It is not optimized for a iPhone X and falls below the screen. This phone has been out for 2 cycles now. How did this pass your QA? The back button works sometimes. Requires excessive touches. On my child’s work sheets, I should be able to pinch and zoom and rotate in landscape to see my child’s sheets and to see what the instructors rely sheets, because at portrait and at the scale it’s on my screen, it’s is 95% illegible. There are other problems with just the way the fonts are handled, small and grey. Again looks cool, but falls very short from readability standards. I am happy what you offer my child, and this would be a great tool for me to follow along with, but it really is not a great tool. I hope this feedback will lead to optimizations in design and QA.
App needs to be improved
The parents app worked at first but now it’s not loading stats. I have to go into the actual Thinkster application to review what worksheets were completed and see results/progress. I’ve tried restarting my phone to see if that would help but still unable to load the data.
Outside of that, my child is enjoying the worksheets, the tutor is great on the tutoring sessions and she does a great job engaging my child. I know that I saw that some reviews how they think 15 minutes is short but I find that it’s good amount of time for my child.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
