  • 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.
  • Good app, bad customer service

    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.
  • 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.
  • Good but needs work

    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!

    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.
  • Best Communication Attributes Currently

    By hallwbc31
    I’m a current 1st grade teacher and have used the app for two years now. I’ve used many of Bloomz’s competitors and Bloomz has the best overall attributes. The Media Signups, and Documents section, the vast customizable features, and the ability to schedule conferences within the calendar section make this the cornerstone communicator for school to home. Bloomz support/staff continue to enhance the app and are open to user suggestions. The user interface is simple and clean when considering all the features and abilities presented. Continue with the great ideas!

    This app is not user friendly at all. One of my kids teachers used class dojo years ago and I️ found it very easy to navigate and use. This one seems very buggy, even after updating the app. All of my kids teachers use bloomz and every single one complains about posts not uploading, communications getting lost and pictures not being uploaded. I️ don’t bother anymore using Bloomz to communicate either directly to the teacher or in a group with other parents. Email is much more efficient and direct. If I️ was able to give it zero stars I️ would. I️ tell every single parent and teacher I️ am in contact with to stop using this and use class dojo instead. Or even using nothing but email would be better. This app is a waste of time and is useless!
  • This app is NOT free to use as intended

    After several years on Class Dojo our son started at a new school with the teachers using Bloomz. We got signed up fine, and the second day of class a parent posted a picture to share via the messaging section. I clicked the button to download the picture and all of a sudden got a pop-up requiring a $20 payment to be able to download photos. One of the selling points of Bloomz in the app description is the ability to share class photos. But that’s not the case unless every parent pays the $20/year subscription. I’ll stick with Facebook, text, email, or Class Dojo—all of which are free for parents to use for keeping up with class happenings and sharing class photos.

    I’m giving this two stars because it currently is lacking but it has so much potential. The biggest problem is that when there is an update and you Receive a (1) new update on your app icon it can be almost impossible to find what was actually updated - the home page needs to only have updated so that every time you receive one new message, the most recent one ,no matter, who it’s from is at the top of the list ( I’ve been searching teacher/announcement/child/etc for the last 30 min trying to get the (1) to go away and give me my update). If it would do this I would give it 5 stars - I love being able to communicate with the teachers on this!
  • Love it!!

    Omg why aren’t more teachers using this app?!! Its so convient and easy to stay in contact with the teacher. I also love that he can upload pics of their learning experiences! We just had teacher conferences and the teacher was able to make time slot event for parents to sign up for. It was super easy and and quick to get conferences set up. More teachers need to get on board with this app. This one is my fav out of the ones others have used. And the fact that its easy to navigate, and communicate makes it so much better!
