The initial salespeople are extremely pleasant and will tell you anything you want to hear just to sell you this app. Once you pay for it, you truly find out how limited the app is and the fact that it is not fully functional for a Florida school. You are then left to the mercy of not so pleasant people who could care less about your experience or your review.
DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR SALES PITCH! I am out hundreds of dollars and I did not use the app for a single day of my daycare being open.

Pros

I liked the idea of the parent communication feature. Yet was not able to use the feature, as I discovered after being given access to the app that it did not have the necessary features needed in a Florida daycare setting to comply with all necessary documentation needs. I therefore cancelled before my actual subscription began and was denied the refund of the months I had prepaid for.

Cons

This app does not have the administrative functions needed to document all areas needed to keep up with Florida Certifications. I asked if they had everything we needed multiple times before purchase and only realized once given access (after I paid for a subscription), that it did not have the tools for that documentation. When I called (during my FREE month of subscription, before my paid for subscription even began) they denied me any refund, even though they admitted that 4 other daycares had cancelled their subscriptions for this same reason. I was led to believe this would have everything we needed and when it was clear it did not, they would not reimburse my payment, even though we were still in the trial month.

I like being able to communicate more fluidly with daycare providers.

Pros

Pictures and the content. The desktop has lot more functionality than Tadpoles or other apps I've used.

Cons

The mobile interface is lacking and not great to navigate and cannot access all humans features and content, such as menus and calendars. I wish I could save pictures and videos from the app.
