Sure hope you like spam, 'cause that's what you're getting
They will pester you to subscribe each time you open the app, sometimes multiple times. They will send you email, asking you to subscribe. And in case you missed the first email, they will send you a second, and a third. But they know that you are busy, so they will send you several more. I've been signed up for less than a week, and I must have received almost a dozen emails from them, only about 20% of which were actually useful. The rest were unapologetic ads, or thinly vailed ads for their service disguised as notifications. Oh, and the in app ads are tricky. They don't just let you exit out of them. Nope. You have to scroll through the whole slideshow first, and then when you finally get to the end, they will ask you if you are sure you don't want to buy their over-priced service. And just what is it that they offer you that's so great that they have to make sure you know all about it? Well, for what I can tell, it's so you can have the opportunity to know the moment your child's teacher has read your message. In other words, all the parents with real things to do all day get nothing, and the parents that love to look over their child's teacher's shoulder get instant creeper-level access. In short, if you are a teacher, keep looking for a better app. If you are a parent, I'm sorry. And if you're an entrepreneur, this market is apparently very ripe for disruption; you'll make meelions!
