Not impressed 1/5
Doesn’t usually recognize my email for log in. There’s no oversight when other parents make insulting or attacking comments. Due to glitches and log in issues, you’ll actually miss out on more than your getting informed on. Poor and superficial support. Not a
Good use of technology.
Worst App Ever 1/5
Not sure how this app is rated so highly. It’s awful... It’s so unreliable. 8 times out of 10, my class, my messages, and my posts disappear. The app crashes ALL the time. I truly regret ever getting this app for my first year of teaching. Instead of making things easier, it made things sooo difficult.
By General Mutley
Trying to navigate around this app is a joke.
Nothing is intuitive and following the latest update I have lost all previous communications and links sent by the school.
You need to take another look at the UX and UI....it really does not work well.
I tried to reach the company via the feedback feature and it just endlessly gives a please wait symbol.
Can not believe that schools actually use this clunky, outdated software.
Happy to change my mind but so far having used it for last 6 months I am not impressed.
Ok but what Evz 1/5
By zane boi
It was a bit ok but it won’t let me do ANYTHING!!! It was ok tho 😡😡😡😡 that is what I think 0 out of 10000 well what ever it’s ok tho i just dont like the way it is in so yea oooooof 😂😂😂 I’d rather just play around and show my fans what I’m saying right now😂😂😂😂 so WHAT EVER LETS GET BACK TO WHAT I THINK I think it is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo......
👏🏻👏🏻 OK I WILL STOP AND TELL YOU
That’s what I think
Good news is it’s not glitchy
Have used this app for 2 years. It is terrible and not improving. Notification settings don’t work, and I get badge notifications for every comment and they don’t go away. App freezes often. Messages to teachers take forever to go through. Teachers, if you are considering this app, this parent begs you to please look elsewhere.
Good app 4/5
By Dan Ske
This app has really helped us maintain excellent communication with our kids teacher. Glad she opted to use it.
I truly enjoy Bloomz it’s a great way to communicate with teacher and see what kids are doing in class . Love it
I LOVE BLOOMZ! 4/5
I’m a grandmother of a 2nd grader. I joined Bloomz so I could keep up with my grandsons school life. I am in awe of this app - there is open communication with the teacher - daily messages from the Principal - parents can freely communicate with on another, sharing stories and photos! I WISH I had BLOOMZ when my daughters were growing up! Much more efficient than passing notes back and forth thru their book bags! LOL. I rated BLOOMZ
Four stars, only because I know technology changes and improves so quickly - and I want to see them get better and better each year!
Terrible programming 1/5
The user interface is horrible. When responding to group messages, entire fields will disappear forcing you to retype everything. For an extended period my wife’s account would not send notifications and there’d be delays in her reading messages. Truly hot garbage. We have 2 kids separated by 2 years. In those 2 years nothing improved. So glad Bloomz will not be following our children into next year.
Amazing, especially now 5/5
This app was great when school first started. Our teacher posted pictures of our little ones on their first day, pictures of arts and crafts, pictures of parties, and special events. They posted tips on how to help our kiddos learn and study the lessons they were working on in class. We even used it to invite classmates to parties on weekends. Now that school is closed due to Covid 19, we’re using it to keep in touch with teachers so they can send resources for our kids to learn while they’re home. We’re sending pictures of our kids swimming, doing arts and crafts at home and studying. This app is great and I hope our next teacher uses it, too.
Great app for school! 5/5
Unlike some of the school apps out there this one is easy to use & navigate. Doesn’t have 100 annoying advertisements & makes it easy to find announcements & message teachers individually. Wish all my kids teachers used this app!
Functions well! 5/5
For a non tech savvy hard working single papa, this app function well! It has helped me with a vehicle to quickly check in, as well as stay in the loop while I’m on the go. Well done, warmly, Gorn
Update quickly!! 1/5
We can no longer submit work to my students portfolio!!!
Great tool, needs a little refinement 3/5
I could really use the option to snooze notifications for a half an hour. When the Bloomz gets hopping while I’m in a meeting, it’s tres distracting.
This parent is happy 5/5
By sagi in paradise
Children already love electronics. I find that the children are focusing on their work and has less distractions and develop more discipline studies via this means. Parents transparency without the need to go to the child school , , disturbing a class or taking time off from work. Monitor child progress at the tip of your finger tips.
By Neha 2905
It’s a very easy and faster way to communicate with teacher. I really like this app.
Worst app ever 1/5
This is the worst app ever. It is always crashing and unfortunately our teachers rely on this as communication. It is difficult to navigate through. Only get about half of the messages and usually far too late. What’s the point if we have to use back up communications as well?!?!
Years of unimproved glitches 1/5
I have used Bloomz for 4 years with my children’s classes. Bloomz continues to have serious glitches that freeze the phone, do not allow photo uploads, etc. As an iPhone user (have had 2 different phones while using Bloomz) I cannot upload a photo in the messages to communicate with our teachers. If I try to upload a photo it always freezes. I have to shut down app and start the message over. Never am I able to post a photo. Not once.
Our entire school (26 classrooms) have wanted to love and use Bloomz as a school wide platform but it has too many glitches that make the app freeze. This is a huge bummer. I love all the potential features of Bloomz when they actually work.
We will be moving to Class Tag even though we in theory like Bloomz features better- if they actually worked.
Bloomz- Why have these glitches not been fixed in 4 years? Many of us have asked for these specific features to work. Make the switch to make it work or take away the false features. The first thing out of every parent’s mouth in regards to Bloomz, “It has a lot of glitches.” “It’s very glitchy.” “I can’t ever get it to work.” “It keeps freezing.” “I can’t upload photos to an album.” “I can’t message a photo assignment to teacher.”
For old pepople. 1/5
This application is very frustrating, it is not work for what it is supposed to be, please just delete it, so the older teachers can see the new applications, much easier, much more simple. Stop complicating our lives in this quarantine.
Never gives help!! 1/5
I was never given help when I needed a class code and still do and when I asked two times more never got a response!!
Bloomz is gaming user ratings and it is fraud 1/5
It is against Apple rules to only give the rating prompt to users who first reply they enjoy the app.
Great Application! 4/5
By Heart Teaching
I love this app and the way it helps me keep in constant communication with families. I also love that it helps me track frequency of homeschool communication. I wish that it were less glitchy, but I’m hoping that when I buy a paid subscription it will be everything I need to document and track behavior and home/school communication.
Kind of confusing 2/5
Not really easy to navigate.
You guys really have a difficult app! Not even gettin messages Is easy. I sometimes don’t see stuff from my grandson’s teacher till days later. It tells me it’s there but nothing.A very difficult app to navigate.
Not family-friendly 2/5
I like the concept but the app just isn’t very intuitive and frequently has glitches in the feed causing parents to miss important information.
I’ve been using bloom for a while. I just love it. It’s a good app for parents to communicate with their kids teachers.
Remind or dojo instead. 1/5
It’s super frustrating during these times that you can’t figure out how to get your app to work correctly. I get notification of messages from parents to open my app to nothing. I’m getting messages days later. No bueno Bloomz. I won’t make this mistake another year.
So much better out there 2/5
Moving to online learning with covid-19/Coronavirus I am using multiple apps to connect with different teachers and schools. This is by far the most difficult to use and is constantly slow and glitchy. I find it incredibly frustrating as the app and site both barely function.
I’m a student and I use this for online learning for school, and it won’t load at all! I can’t even see my work for the week and it has that loading circle at the top and it won’t go away. I deleted the app then reinstalled the app and signed in and guess what, another loading circle! I can’t even message my teacher. Sorry guys but if this app does not get fixed, I’m contacting the teacher.
By Cati V
My husband and I love this app! We enjoy getting daily updates on our daughter and her class. Thank y’all so much!
I’ll stop using it... 1/5
App is not the most user friendly and it keeps bugging. I can’t comment on post. Tried to uninstall and reinstall but now I have lost class and don’t have my access code.
It’s so hard to get anything done for my daughters class that I’ll just stop using it.
Great app for schools 5/5
It’s a great way to connect to your class AND the school as a whole!
I like it because I can talk to my teacher Mrs. Perry 5/5
I just got homework and I have to do it
This app is always slow to update. Half the time it doesn’t work. I have to wait until low traffic times to get the updates from their teachers I need. Not impressed!
Worst app I’ve ever had to use. Glitchy, slow.
Very happy 5/5
I have been very happy with Bloomz. It’s a great way for the teacher to communicate with us and it’s easy to navigate.
Latest update reset app and now I’m not connected. 4/5
By Hank Barron
The app worked again the next day so I updated the review. Seems back on track. Thanks.
Worked fine until the latest update. Getting a message about the app to the developers is a pain. An app to aid in communication should be better at assisting with problems and how to resolve them.
When I did finally log back in, none of the classroom information I had been linked to for the past 6 months is a available. Pretty frustrating.
Bloomz is easy to use and very convenient to reach my child’s teacher with any concern, hw assignment question or just to share pics. Big thumbs up!
Great App! 5/5
By Wicker Pants
Great way to connect with the teachers and other parents. Love it!
Takes a minute to figure out, but helpful! 4/5
By working mom of 3 goofballs
It’s not the most user friendly system, but I do like having a means to keep in touch with our child’s teacher and the other parents without having everyone sharing their private phone numbers. I also like the photo sharing options!
Great app 5/5
Teacher’s review 5/5
I use BLOOMZ to communicate with my parents and love it! I like that I can use the app or login on my computer with it. It does glitch sometimes and can be slow to load certain things but I feel that’s the case with any app.
Efficient communication tool 5/5
I appreciate these parent to teacher apps. This is the first school year that I have used Bloomz but it appears to work as intended. The teacher is able to send out notifications and school updates as well as share pictures from class or field trips. I’ve also used the private message to send her notes or ask questions about my son directly. Great tool!
Great Application 5/5
It’s easy to use and the communication has never been so easy before. Definitely would recommend to all.
Bloomz is wonderful 5/5
By Eiley's Mom
We Love Bloomz for communicating with my child’s teacher and parents of other classmates. The app works great and is totally secure.
Not reliable at all! 1/5
This entire school year Bloomz has had spotty service. I thought it was getting better, but now when parents need it most to keep in touch it isn’t working. I plan to fix this review if you will fix your app.
My sons teacher chose this. We downloaded the app, signed up in the app but now it refuses to send a verification email to me. I can’t access anything. Yes I checked my spam folder nothing their either.
Love this app 5/5
My child’s Montessori school uses Bloomz to post photos of the kids doing their work! It’s great to see them and what they get to do!
