The platform is excellent for teachers who are looking for an opportunity to perform their duties regardless of whether they are at school or not.

Design — 4/5
Created to suit the needs of any possible user, the application is simple yet rather comfortable. The interface is an interactive class register with lots of fun and useful functions to improve your classroom management.
As you enter your account, the top left corner menu brings you a scroll-down list of features. Here, every function is easily accessible and activates by pressing a specific pictogram. Because each pictogram is a separate menu itself, you don’t need to worry about having to shuffle through tons of confusing options.
Moreover, the interface is equipped with an instant support function. It gives the user the most important information about the app and guides them should they encounter any difficulty.
Usability — 5/5
The app is suitable not only for teachers but also for students and parents. When setting up an account, you get to choose one of the profiles, which results in proving you a certain set of features.
Because the app is free of charge, it’s available on Play Market and AppStore for everybody. To create your own classroom, first, you’re going to need to add personal information about your type of class, number students, and time frames. Each student has to install the app on their smartphone and use an invitation to join a specific group created by the moderator, that is the teacher.
When everything is set up, and all the students have joined the classroom, the teacher can manage their activities, schedule, and communicate with them via DM.
The notification feature at the top of the screen will inform you and the rest about all the most urgent events, classwork, and homework.
Features — 5/5
Here, the moderator has a wide range of functions and a lot of authority to manage a class sufficiently. To utilize the best functions, you need to get to your Toolkit, where they are all hidden.
When starting your lesson, it’s possible to check the students’ presence by accessing the Toolkit menu and choosing ‘Group Maker’. Also, each student has their individual space on the presence list. There, the teacher can send them notes, mark their homework, and even behavior or have a private conversation when needed.
To keep everyone updated, there is a ‘Class Story’ function. By it, the teacher and students themselves can add information about their daily activities, most important events, and updates. This makes up a perfect class blog, especially when adding photos and multimedia files.
In-App Purchases — 3.5/5
To improve your classroom environment, the app offers a lot of free-of-charge functions that alone are sufficient enough. However, the developers are offering a whole set of new features to utilize. They can be acquired by accessing the Toolkit menu and requesting them from inside the app itself. They can be a great asset to your classroom development.
The Bottom Line
Download the app to make the best of your smartphone when it comes to staying in touch with the people who depend on you most.
The app is a nice assistant in every busy teacher’s daily routine when it comes to checking the presence, privately communicating with students, and watching over the kids. Utilizing the available features will improve your management potential and ensure a better connection with your students. You don’t have to seem nosey, but you can send them a private message to show that you care.
