Won’t load 1/5
The app will NEVER load. Deleted and downloaded over and over and same result. Even tried it on multiple devices.
I really want to like this app but about 80% of the time, it doesn’t load. Just spins. I’ve uninstalled/reinstalled but no difference.
Why would I use this app? 1/5
Update #2: Thank you for the response, but: Too little, too late. This is May daughter’s last year in school and I will celebrate by deleting the app.
I am sorry, but this is billed as a communication app, and it fails miserably at that. I go back to my original complaint! The communication from teacher to parents is OK. But there is no communication from parents to teacher. ONLY parent to teacher works.
As a programmer myself I would not have released an app with such a glaring hole.
Update: no response from the developers! I wish the app would just die!!! I use this app not because I think it is good in any sense. Nor does it provide any features that a plain old text message cannot provide! I use it because my daughter’s teacher uses it and it is the only way to communicate with the teacher. My complaints: 1) When I get a message from the teacher I have no way to know if it was sent to just me or to a group of people. 2) There is no way for me to send a message to the teacher and my daughter’s mother. These two “features” lead to miscommunication and confusion. I am sure that an app supposedly built to foster communication does not want to hear those complaints but they are real. I would not use the app if I had any other option for communicating with my daughter’s teacher.
Mystery of the Unread Message 1/5
My app constantly says 3 unread messages in the home button, but I have read every message.
What happened TalkingPoints?? 1/5
Last year my child started kindergarten. I was introduced to this app since this is what the school uses. I loved it! This year my child started 1st grade on 8/29 and I’ve not been added to her class on this app. Every time I contact the school they tell me it’s a TalkingPoints issue. What’s going on?? I contact support and get no response. This is horrible!

Not user friendly , cannot update or change profile name!!!! 1/5
Not user friendly , cannot update or change profile name!! No technical support either.
Very difficult to navigate. Dojo points is awesome app comparatively. Very disappointed.
Oh wow apparently they need a nickname to go with the review.. every possible nickname is taken!! They don’t want us to post especially 1 star review…Simply can’t believe this!!

Thank you!! 5/5
By Tracie A Anderson
Very good idea, and easy to follow app! I love that it will even tell you if your child is in each class on time! Fortunately my child doesn’t skip class like his mommy did, but he won’t be able to with this app!! It also gets all the info needed to parents in a timely manner rather than the last minute relay I’m used to getting from my son, not to mention whether or not his work is getting done and turned in Thank you for this!
Good app 5/5
Great communication app to connect with my daughters teacher. Highly recommended
Love the app but why a “❤️” to like a post? 5/5
Great way to communicate but I don’t care for a heart to my kids’ teachers when I like their post…especially to the opposite sex…it feels creepy. Can you change it to a thumbs up or a happy face or something less love-like? Maybe an apple or a star or something associated with teachers? That is the only reason I would take away a star. (Edited - thanks for the response!)
Sometimes there are 2 parents 5/5
Talking points needs to share both parents communication on a thread when appropriate. My wife and I cannot see each other’s comments and responses from the teacher appear to be very random and out of context. Big oversight in the spirit of privacy, but really needs to be fixed since parents aren’t always tied at the hip.

I love this app! It is very convenient and hen you need to get to your child’s teacher quick!
Not clear 1/5
By 2224 wake up
I get notifications that I have a new message but when I go into the app nothing is new. I.e. it is hard to tell which notification to focus on. I cannot easily find a teacher even once I have been invited/messages by them.
Messages don’t have time date stamp 4/5
Maybe I’m missing this, but I would like the messages to tell me when the message was sent. An exact timeline email. So many of the messages seem to cometo late for me to do what is required. It would be good to know if my device isn’t updating or if the teacher is sending things out at the last minute.
Crash central 2/5
When it works, great. For now, it crashes every time I try to open a message. I’ve rebooted device, reloaded app multiple times. Nothing works. Frustrating when not able to respond to teacher.
Too slow! Or loading time is extremely longer then normal! 1/5
Excelente aplicación 5/5
Hate this app 1/5
This app is whack

Gracias x tenernos informados de la educación de mi hija
School asked me to use this. Cant get any support. 1/5
My kids school asked my to use this app. I can get messages from the parents but the school district sends announcements, i get notifications but can see the announcements. I have contacted talking parents online help many times about this issue and am being ignored. Many times without any response. If you want to rely on communication with the school or teachers find a better option. As many of the teachers now just went back to texting me due to the unreliable service this app actually provides.

Msg Rec’d? 2/5
Saw two messages in app today. One from Dec 8, the other Jan 14. Pure luck that I happened to look there.
App did not indicate msgs were there. Other apps, when msg or notification received, show number of items received. For example, on iphone, msgs or notifications shown in blue circle in corner of app which, of course, disappears when app exited.

Great Communication App 5/5
This is my 1st year using TalkingPoints and I have had zero issues. I really like being able to contact my children’s teachers without having to search for their email and hope that I actually have it. It has also made it nice to be able to have all the communication saved and in one spot to be able to go back and reference.
Muy buena 5/5
By love ' it
I have trouble getting things to load and messages don’t alway get sent.
By Mikaylah’s GG
easy to contact my kiddos teachers. Only thing I’d add would be a directory of teachers with class name and hour.
Parent talk 5/5
By willa harper
It’s the best for communicating
Seeing others’ comments 3/5
By nickname aaaaaa
When both parents are on the app, we can’t see each other’s comments/replies. We can only see teacher’s replies - but can’t see what they’re replying to.
Not easy to use 3/5
I really enjoy this tool to directly text with the teachers.
It often times is hard to open a message when an alert comes through and is hard to figure out if it is a DM or an announcement. The work around for me is to always open all messages.
Like the application. 5/5
Very nice tool for parents.
Not good for group communications 2/5
When one parent sends a message to the teacher, the teacher can’t see which parent sent it. And the other parent can’t see the text at all. We’ve resorted to taking screenshots of the communication with the teacher and sending them through our messages app just so we both know what is being said.
There has to be a better app for comms out there, but we have to use what the school selected.
Thank you for all you do!!!
thank you 5/5
