My favorite parent communication app
I used Bloomz last year and loved it! It translated messages for my parents, it differentiated between a message and an alert, and it allowed me to schedule conferences/ask for volunteers. The calendar feature is probably my favorite part of Bloomz because it made communicating and scheduling so much easier when everything is done on one app. Unfortunately, you only get 125 media uploads, which I didn’t realize until I went to start my new class. There’s no way to archive the class and I’m not willing to delete the entire class yet. I teach special Ed and will still work closely with those students! I’m not willing to pay $100 when other apps are free, so I’ll be switching to Class Dojo 😔

Hate the changes! I’ve used Bloomz for the last 2 years and have loved it. It does have its minor bugs, but I’ve enjoyed sharing pictures and the sign up sheets. However, they have changed things and you can’t send pictures unless you pay $7.99 per month! I’m not paying another subscription fee monthly. I might have paid $7.99 for the entire year, but no way am I adding another monthly fee. I’ve already got my class parents signed up so I’m embarrassed to have to say, never mind, I’ll be using Remind this year! Wish I would have known about the changes before I had my parents download the app!

Too many bugs
I’ve used Bloomz for over a year. I cannot tell you how many times I have to delete and re-install this app. And when my students go to add a post to their parents we have to do the same thing on ALL their iPads. This happens many times. If my school is gonna pay so much money when there are other free options out there, the bugs should be fixed.
