Ratings and Reviews
Amazingly horrible app
First, I downloaded this app because I thought nothing could be worse than the online lunch menus, which often don’t load, there some website error such as a 504 gateway error, etc. I was wrong.
I downloaded the iPhone app, and it looks NOTHING like the thumbnails in the App Store. There is no “favorite” function - at least not one that I was able to locate anywhere. I work in IT and consider myself to be fairly tech savvy. This is a pain, because I have children in multiple different schools.
Furthermore, the current day’s menu loads fine. I cannot get the menu to load for the rest of the week. I click on Tuesday, and it briefly highlights as if it accepted the user input, but it never loads, and there’s no other indication that it’s doing anything.
It’s an all-around terrible app with terrible UX.
Very Basic, Not User Friendly, Could Be Better
The reviews that say they have to go through several clicks to get to their school are correct, but that is only the first time. Once you click “Favorite” for that school it does add to the favorites. HOWEVER, you can only see your favorites by clicking out of the whole process!! This is NOT obvious, and really annoying, hence the negative reviews. They need to add a favorite button at the bottom to easily switch between schools.
The other issue is the interface is clunky and only has one view available, and that view is by day. You can’t see the whole month’s menus at a glance. For parents who only let their kids buy lunch a few days a month this is REALLY annoying.
Also, the nutritional information is helpful, but a list of ingredients is needed as well. This would help parents who want or need to avoid some things in their kid’s diets.
The app also only has an interface for a phone format, not a tablet. So the app looks ridiculous on a tablet, think phone image enlarged.
I have been trying since the school year started to use this app. When I type in my school name Mytown Elementary School, it first offers schools that have Mytown in the name, but not mine, and then it stops offering Mytown and only offers Elementary School.
So then I try my district. Immediately all the schools show up as well as others in the same county. But nothing, not my school, any schools in my district, nor any schools offered, goes anywhere.
I hope we don’t pay very much toward this useless app.
