Slow and not always accurate. 3/5
I switched from Remind to Bloomz this year hoping that I could be more efficient in communicating with parents. I love all the functions the app provides, however; the app has downfalls.
When I have created sign ups and then went back to change the details...I found out it never saved the changes. I’ve all tried to change/update a document that I have uploaded to find that that never changed. I’m also finding, as well as some of my parents, that the app is slow to relay messages and you don’t always get them right away. Please fix these problems.
Recent updates 4/5
I love the recent update! It has made accessing the app on my mobile device much easier.
So much better than paper handouts. You can respond instantly, to teacher questions. I especially love the requests function; that allows you to know how many chaperones, snacks, or supplies are still needed. The direct messaging to the teacher is very convenient.
What’s the use of the recent update? 1/5
App was great until the update 2 days ago. For some reason It signed me out. I’ve been trying to log in and every time I try to sign in the app keeps on crashing! There’s also a new post from my kid’s teacher from Friday’s and I can’t even open this thing 👎🏼
Naming private messages!!!!! 1/5
Wish I could name private messages I have to message parents every night so I put the parents together but can’t see what parents I’m messaging of the child I need. If I could name the private messages it would make it a lot easier for me at night and faster. Not having to click on my messages and who the parents are
Great idea but glitchy 3/5
I love the concept of Bloomz. It’s great to share the calendars, photos, events, and general posts. But the number of glitches is often and therefore rather annoying.
Garbage app 1/5
This app could be good in theory but is just garbage in terms of performance. I constantly see loading spinners, I wonder if the developers know how to use basic caching and prefectch for images. It’s hit or miss if I am to get notifications on this thing, half the time they don’t show up.
The fact that this app has 5 star reviews makes me realize that this market is either insanely easy to satiate, and any random developer can vastly improve on this app and drink Bloomz’ milkshake, or bloomz will get its act together. Hoping for the later but have very low expectations.
I Love It But It Doesn’t Always Work 2/5
Today I need to post a reminder about testing. The app will not allow me to post when I click the plus sign to add a post. It just shows the same screen but it is lighter in color. Please help!
Fast and awesome way to interact with teachers and parents 5/5
This app made it simple and straightforward to interact with parents and teachers for my daughter. Better than phone calls and emails. Highly recommended.
Great App 5/5
By C lower
This app is great it keeps me in touch with his teacher constantly.
Solid app with TONS of potential! 4/5
While I absolutely love the premise of this app and what it is able to accomplish thus far, I still can’t help but feel that there is much that can be done to the app that would make it even more amazing and special. Lots of potential that I hope is tapped into!
Great communication ap 4/5
Love the ap. Gives me the ability to reach out to my students parents quickly. However, sometimes I do not revive my notifications immediately or at all for messaging part of ap.
This could be a good app...with some work 2/5
Lots of bugs. App is not very responsive. It could be a good app with some work.
The camera is terrible, you must have a picture already available in the photo library in order to upload to Bloom messaging.
Can’t see posts 1/5
I receive notifications on my phone and via email when the teacher posts but when i open the app, I cannot see what she has posted. When I open the emails, it directs me to the blooms app and I still cannot see the new posts. I enjoyed this app early on but i have had nothing but issues the past few months.
Proud Mommy 5/5
I use this to keep track of what my son is doing in school. It is really nice to have.
I love how I can talk to
Other parents in my child’s class without searching for numbers. Other apps that our teachers have used didn’t allow for that. Everything about this app is awesome.
Love it! 5/5
It’s such a great way to communicate with teachers and parents! My sons teacher writes a summary everyday of what went on in school.
Great way to connect! 4/5
Really enjoy the communication with teachers and parents! Participants on the class board are approved by the teacher, so access to pics and info is secure.
Best application for teachers and parents!! 5/5
I absolutely love this app and how easy it is to use to communicate with the teacher and class!!
Tremendous tool for parents 4/5
What a fantastic alternate to pinning notes to a kid’s jacket! This gives a reliable single point of contact for my child’s K teacher, as well as a way for that teacher to broadcast information or photos to all the parents for the class.
I love that this is not Facebook and none of the other social media does not creep into these focused interactions.
On the downside, the app is slow to view and I do miss a few FB-ish features around viewing media. Also, getting notifications about postings seems haphazard so I recommend opening it at least once a day to not miss any important information.
But, overall, a great tool for parents.
By Eskrima De Campo JDC-IO
Simple app to stay in touch with teachers and fellow parents.
Love this App! 5/5
Really love how this App keeps the line of parent-teacher communication open and available at all times! I can write my sons teacher a message and she can reply to me directly, or make a whole post for all parents to see. 10/10 would use again.
Awesome app! 5/5
I love this app! My daughters teacher uses it to keeps us parents informed and to send reminders. I would rightly recommend it.
Best app 5/5
I love this app, thank you
Good but needs work 3/5
This app is good because I can communicate with teachers and other parents without having to their personal info or give out mine. I get the whole year schedule of testing and field trips and events. And I can upload pics of those events.
What could use work is the notifications and calendar. I have missed entire conversations I should have been a part of because the notification didn’t come in or I couldn’t find what the notification was for.
In the calendar, it’s great to know what’s coming, but being able to click on the event and add it to my own device calendar would make it better. Or to be ale to set a reminder for the event from Bloomz. Then I wouldn’t miss special clothing days, dressing appropriately for field trips, etc.
Can't create a school group type 1/5
By Cmndo brndo
The app crashes every time I try to create a group type for my school. Worthless.
The app is very easy to use as an administrator. I will say that it slightly confusing if you are not an avid smart phone user. A few of my parents had difficulty with figuring out how to Adjust notifications. Other than that, it has been a wonderful app. I'm definitely planning on using it next school year!
By Okalie dokalie
My sons kindergarten teacher is always keeping all of the students families up to date with any news. It’s awesome! I love it!
I love that I can see daily (our teacher is super about posting) what our son is doing in class. Great way to ask him questions and jog his memory about his day when he says he can't remember what they did :) . And I love how easy it is to communicate with the teacher and other parents. It's all right at your finger tips!
Love it 5/5
I think all teachers should use this app
Great form of communication 5/5
Great form of communication between Teacher and Parent
Great communication app! 5/5
My daughter’s teacher uses this to let all of us parents know what’s going on in class, and if they are having a party so we can sign up to bring things. I love this app! We (the parents) can also talk to each other about birthday parties, activities between our kids, etc. It’s wonderful.

Bloomz makes getting in contact with your child’s teacher easy. It is also great at keeping parents up to date with events.
Bloomz Rocks! 5/5
I love how I can easily keep in touch with my daughters teacher! She posts pictures of their progress and fun activities. The reminders she also posts are extremely helpful. I wish all teachers used this app
Bloomz Review 5/5
By Parent at LMES
I love the communication and ease of use Bloomz offers! Glad Love Memorial uses it!
Easy to use 5/5
Easy to use and the teacher is able to share everything with the class. You can sign up for goodies to bring to parties, your availability, see pictures of the kids, as well as private message the teacher and other parents.

By مريم م
What a great App 5/5
I really hope more grades and more schools adopt this App. It’s very helpful keeping me informed and up to date on the everyday aspects of my sons day to day activities. He usually says he did nothing or nothing is happening at school. This App lets me know that’s just not true!!!
Great app.! 5/5

As a teacher, I love this app! My favorite is the calendar. I like that it sends reminders without me having to do anything beyond the initial set up!
