  • It’s a great start, but APP is glitchy

    I just started using Bloomz, in the middle of the school year. I increased parent connection to class announcements from 3 parents, on my old website, to 25 parents on Bloomz. I love how I can message parents in a less intimidating way, that is more like a text message than a formal email. I love that I can see who has viewed my updates, and parents can interact with it through comments and likes. I also love that families, who don’t speak or read English, can have my updates auto-translated into any language. Then, parents can write to me in the language that they are comfortable with, and I can read it in English. The down side is when I use the app, verses the online platform, I find there is a lag in posting, and items take very long to load. This is especially frustrating when I am accepting and welcoming parents. After I accept a parent on the app, it doesn’t update and shows I still need to approve. It makes it unclear to me if a parent is welcomed, and causes me to worry that it looks as though I am ignoring some parents.
  • BEST. CLASSROOM. APP. EVER.

    This is hands down the best classroom app I have ever tried! I don’t use the management piece (with the points and blooming plants) but I use almost everything else, especially the communication piece. I love how connected I feel to my student’s families and it makes communication easy and simple. The parents love it, too. I see some people have rated Bloomz and said that there were some glitches and flaws but like every app, the developers are always looking for areas for improvement and fixing those bugs with their updates. I have never run into any kind of glitch or flaw using Bloomz. I think that some people are also more technologically fluent than others. Some people may run into something that they think is a problem or a glitch when it’s actually not, they are just unsure how to navigate the app correctly and that may affect a person’s opinion about Bloomz.
  • Excellent way to communicate with families

    I’ve used Bloomz for a few years and this year I decided to pay and upgrade. I love it and recommend it to my fellow teachers. It’s fairly easy to use, once you test it out and get the hang of it. It allows for immediate ways to get in touch with parents- either with a text message or through reminders. Events on the calendar can be set for an automatic reminder which relieves me from trying to send out constant reminders each time. With the text message feature, personal info is confidential and it’s all through the app, which allows for more immediate communication without revealing too much personal information. And the parents have responded positively as well- to the photos and updates posted, reminders, and being able to get in contact with one another through the app. All inclusive! Highly recommend!
  • Good app, bad customer service

    By Phase10-er
    I am a 4th grade teacher and have been using Bloomz for a year or so. I’ll start with what I like- ability to add photos, easy to navigate, easy for parents to sign up, options for personalization. It’s a valuable resource. There are some funky bugs in the app, most are workable, but there is one in particular I cannot work around. The “sign up” letter is a formula, which is fine except the language doesn’t make sense in the title. I sent an email to customer support and while they were responsive at the beginning, they didn’t really listen to my concern. When I laid it out for them again, they stopped responding. It appears that there is no fix for the issue, so they decided ignoring me would be a good idea? Horrible customer service!!!!! Might be migrating to Remind 101 or the like if I have any more issues.
  • Easy to communicate

    This app is a great way to communicate with my sons teachers and other parents as well. However one thing I did not like was when I first began using the app you have to do the whole tour, which is fine for one go around. But with my experience it did not go away after the first time and kept coming up every time I signed in and it was very annoying. I’m not sure if it was glitch with the app or what. It took about a month for it to finally go away. But I do like being able to reach anyone in the class and post pictures and see others albums and upcoming events. It also makes signing up for events and conferences a lot easier. This is a smart way for teachers to communicate with parents rather than having to email each one. I enjoy it very much.
  • This app actually hinders communication!

    By Katebloomer
    The above statement may sound perverse, but it actually puts up a barrier between direct communication between other parents. While I like being able to communicate with the teacher - who I generally wouldn't just text directly - there's no reason there has to be so many steps between you and another parent. Because of this app, parents don't get each other's information, and school directories are becoming obsolete. With the ability to email and text directly, there is no need for this app. If you want to create a real community in your school, you have to have some level of trust. This app works against that, and fosters disconnection and distrust. Plus, it's so clunky and unreliable! I frequently miss group messages, and so do other teachers. School leaders - don't believe the hype!! This app complicates communication, rather than facilitates it.
  • Bad as a parent

    By ram1006
    I’m in my second year of using Bloomz for my son’s school. Although it has become slightly more user friendly, it still feels very awkward and clunky. Difficult to navigate and had to find obvious thing. Notifications show up different on the app icon than 2 different locations for notifications once app is opened. Bell icon for notifications doesn’t work. Just shows super old and outdated invites instead of what my new alerts are. When scrolling down on my son’s class site, the app jumps around making it hard to make sure I’ve seen everything and just frustrating and time consuming. There should be clear places to go for updates from teachers, photos from school, events calendar. Having everything in one feed is fine as long as you can also see it clearly separated.
  • Good but needs work

    By BrainandPinky
    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.
  • Love this!

    By JLOinGainesville
    My son’s teacher uses this app to communicate with all the parents and I love it! She sends daily updates with pictures that lets us know what they are working on and makes it so much easier to discuss their day with first graders who aren’t always so forth coming with details. She can also send reminders for special activities, set up meetings/conferences and request volunteers when needed. It takes a little getting used to and isn’t always the most user friendly, but in terms of making communication with my kids’ teacher easier I absolutely love it!!! I hope the rest of the teachers start using it too.
  • Almost awesome

    As many parents know, getting accuracy about how a day went for (younger) children can be challenging. Bloomz lets me ask better questions and get more in depth answers because of the insight I get into what my child did during the day. I find myself immediately opening the app when I get notified about new posts, I make a more concerted effort to leave likes to show appreciation for uploads than I would in other social media apps, and I generally like the model a lot. It does have some polish issues around usability and performance which are some of the reasons I didn’t give it 5 stars, but I have noticed those issues getting better over time as well.
