Great Concept/Meh App At Best

The app is pretty much just a photo update versus their website with much more information. Works be great to have all the same info as the website. Worst part is that it didn’t even do is intended purpose well. Notifications havens even been working properly so I just have to check randomly to see if a photo of my child has been uploaded.

A huge benefit in the new distance learning environment

My son’s school rolled out TC this year. It was nice to see what he what works he was doing. Now that he is finishing his last 2.5 months as a 6th year remotely, it has been invaluable.

All of his works and projects are done through TC. We upload pictures of his works to share with his classmates. It is the primary tool we use for getting work and has been great. Are there things I wish it would do, yes. But for this emergency learning environment it has been ideal.

Needs to be more user friendly

I love the way the online website is set up but the app is not user friendly or orderly like you would expect for something Montessori. To tag a child after taking a picture with the app I must exit and go online log in hit activity (not photos) and then I can tag the children. To use this photo as a profile picture I then need to go to children select the child edit click on the area for the photo and select. I must guess how the photo will be cropped.
It would be nice within the app after taking the photo immediately being able to tag a child. Having a box to check to make the picture a profile picture would be amazing!
