Love the app
I have use daily connect for years. Its a huge enhancement for the parents and they absolutely love it. I recently upgraded though, I am a home provider, and it can get costly, but its not terrible considering the parents love having minute by minute updates. I have asked and still hope they come up with the video uploads enhancements soon, its the only thing I can say they are missing. As well as customizable reports!! I highly recommend it though! Gave it a four because of the fee per child vs flat fee and not capable of video yet;)!

This app is amazing for any parent who is going back to work after maternity leave or any grandparent who is helping out with dropping off / picking up the little angels for the day . It really is comforting and cuts down on stress and anxiety to see the activity of the child . The app allows photos , it tracks how much sleep they are having , how much milk they have consumed how many dirty diapers , it also lets you send a message to the care giver it’s amazing . It’s so comforting to open up the app anytime of the day and see how your little angle is doing , and what kind of day they are having . It helps keep track of things for you too. On the weekends you can input your daily information. It’s so helpful. Your whole wellbeing is taken care of for you with this app knowing that your baby is being loved and cared for . I show it off anytime I get a chance . Thank you, Proud grandma

Glitchy and frustrating
I’m a teacher who is required to use this app. In short, teachers and centers don’t waste your time. It kicks students out of my classroom daily so I can’t log anything for them with no way to get them back on my own classroom device, so I have to go to another classroom and use one specific device every time I need to fix it. I have parents who can’t view or download documents, and I don’t have the emails so it’s how I’m required to send newsletters. I’m admittedly picky about this, but I don’t like the design of the app (fonts, images, icons, etc.). I think it looks cheap and tacky. The only reason I gave it two star is because it does what it’s supposed to 50% of the time. Teachers and centers, run away! Pick something else, like brightwheel.

Subscription bites
I probably should have written this review a while back. I used to love this app until it went to a subscription format. I used to keep track of my children’s medical stats and symptoms when they got sick. Recently, while I was gathering data to store elsewhere I was reminded of how loyal users were priced out. To be fair I went back and looked at my purchase history. The history stated I paid $4.99 twice back in 2012. Once was for the iPhone version and the other was for the iPad version. I did get quite a few years of usage. But I lost the functionality after so much time and data were invested in the app. Be careful before they make changes again that push loyal users out.

Has potential, but needs work
This app is used by my current daycare provider and I love that they use an app. I check this throughout the day and think it makes sense for every daycare to use. However, this app is a little sub-par for me. My previous daycare used BrightWheel which is much more new, fresh and innovative. It has a better layout, design and interface that I think DailyConnect is really missing. It's odd to me that DailyConnect lets me use the app as though I'm the provider (i.e.: I can enter feedings, diaper changes etc) and doesn't seem to have separate functions. There's so many great opportunities for this app, but right now it feels like I'm using an iPhone 3 vs iPhone 7.

Bug fixed after March 3, 2022, update
App works well after the developer fixed a bug from prior update that resulted in app freezing after update. The developer posted another update a couple days later, responded directly to my concerns in the app review, and fixed the bug. I appreciate the continued support for the app. The app works well to allow the daycare center to update me on my toddler’s day with picture and messages.

One of the poorest ran facilities in the metro for childcare!! They have only the care of themselves as staff and not the concern of development for the children. The app itself is vague from the truth of the actual place where you leave your children throughout the day. This not being the first child that was cared for there I thought why not because as usual the staff may change but the app I thought would make it possible to communicate better, yet due to the age ‘complexity’ of ‘some’ staff they weren’t able to communicate through the app but called my personal number numerous times of ‘child-like’ behavior from a child??? But thanks child connect for the app, I’m sure once we he’s at his new facility they’ll have staff professional enough to learn the app.

Less functional than the website without premium purchase
Almost all features - including all photos, communication with daycare providers, and even the basic update history (over all or breakdowns for food, potty, sleep) - are obscured by a gray box with the statement ‘This feature is limited for your account. You need to upgrade your account to view more.’ EVERY update from the provider is obscured by this. The app functions solely as a check in/out tool for the school. For any parent updates you either have to pay or use their web interface. I’d understand unique features like timelines, growth charts or automated graphs being a premium feature. But they have paywalled any reason to have they app beyond check ins.

Updated- I’m still learning
I try to register and it keeps saying I need an invite. But I’m the care taker trying to set it up so I don’t waste paper. Is this a glitch or am I missing something. 🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️ UPDATE: I discovered the website and then it was easy peasy. It gets the job done and I like that the parents can also use it so I can see how their morning or night was. Also compared to others this is very affordable.

Best baby tracking app
I am one that NEVER pays for apps. This app is the one exception! It is worth every single penny! All the details that you get with the paid upgrade are very helpful when trying to remember things and being able to talk to the pediatrician about your baby. We have used this for all 3 of our children and HIGHLY recommend it to all of our friends!

It works great
It’s a great way to keep the parents informed about what the child is doing throughout the day. It also helps with reading comprehension. If a child can look at what they did during the day with a parent at the end of the day and then tell the parent what was happening in the picture and who the people are that’s the first step towards reading comprehension.

Asking me to pay again. Excellent customer service.
UPDATE: although the app has its problems, I must say customer service is extremely responsive and helpful. Every time I ask for help they respond timely and without complications! ———————————— We changed daycare location (being the same company) and now we can’t receive the updates from the new facility. I logged out to see if logging in again would fix the problem and now it’s asking me to pay again. Pretty trashy app.

Missing Features
Bring back the system where you can choose to mark things for only the kids that are marked in!!!! This was the best feature and made it soooo much easier to do updates instead of scrolling through all kids in the class to mark only the ones actually there that day. It was there for a short time and then you removed it and that was a mistake. Things get marked for kids that aren’t here from accidentally hitting those kids names.

👍🏻👍🏻
Been using for several years and have been happy with it. Support has been good. They always respond quickly to questions or problems. A calendar was added recently which is great! Only thing missing now is the ability to upload video and it would be great if it could store a list of commonly fed foods when logging meals/snacks. Most of us I think are rotating through the same meals. Having to type in what is served everyday is time consuming!

Useful tool!
The app works for me again. Thanks for the update! I appreciate being able to keep up with my kid’s day and communicate with the teachers. Very helpful to have the timer since the last time my baby ate or slept to quickly know his needs when we get home from daycare. The graphs of bottle and sleep history are very useful. Very much appreciate this app!

Wonderful!
We have had nannies for our three girls since the second was born. I like to think of this app as our own private Facebook group. I have invited grandparents and godparents to be part of it. At first the nursing/feeding/potty areas are SO helpful. Now we use it mostly for pictures during the day or if one of the girls needs medicine. One issue is getting the nanny to use it. Ours now lives to post pictures but it was tough for some. I emailed the developer previously to allow users to “like” a picture or activity. This let’s the nanny or caregiver know the parents are seeing the posts and appreciate it. One of the best features was the message portion. When my husband and I were out of the country for a long weekend we could still communicate with the nanny/grandparents/kids only using WiFi.

I love this app!! We made the decision to put my then 10 month old son into daycare, the provider told me she used this app. Throughout the day, the app kept me and my husband in the loop about our son (as the provider made updates). It tells me pamper changes, bottle feedings, sleeping patterns and his step by step day, so it made it easy when doctors asked for feeding plans etc. I am so glad his provider uses this and I love it.

Used it for 6 years!
When I first used it at work I shared suggestions, and kept learning how to use it. There’s so much you can do now. It improved immensely since then!! The only suggestion I have now is for us to be able to upload videos to parents. It would be nice to capture funny moments, or a kid first walking. Some parents have gotten mad if we’ve seen that first.

A DAILY DOSE OF SMILES
This app has been amazing. I love being able to see updates of what my son is doing throughout the day. The teachers capture little moments in photos that we as parents may otherwise not be able to see. I am really going to miss it once he moves on to kindergarten. Thank you to the creators of this app. You have provided me with memories and smiles that I will cherish forever.

Free version is useless
Our daycare provider uses the app to record our child's daily activities. My beef is that the free version of the app is practically useless because it shows only very limited data entered by the provider. Their model has the provider paying for their software on a per-child basis, and then they hit the parents for access to that data on a mobile device. So now I'm paying for this twice. Do yourself a favor and add their website to your home screen and save yourself the couple bucks.

Meh
Hard to compare since I’ve never used a similar app and not sure if it’s my daycare not using it to full capacity but. It’s not super clean, I miss important updates and events because of how difficult it is to find the different formats of documents vs notes vs dates. My daycare doesn’t use the calendar feature so I have to make sure to check dates on forms and add that to my calendar manually each time.

I’m so very thankful that I can see pictures of my beloved granddaughter. (We do video on weekends but I’d much rather hold her.) Living in California and being cautious about traveling at this time, I enjoy seeing parts of her days in preschool. Thank you for all your hard work with God’s precious gifts to us. Blessings always.

Life saver and day stealer!
This app is amazing. Can't tell you how valuable it has been for both my wife and I to stay up to date on what our guy is doing at daycare. Also nice to look at before we go get him so we can prepare and be ready for the upcoming night! Awesome app, and I am sure it's all about how the staff uses it and the staff we have is great.

Love this app!
I love that I get updates whenever my daycare inputs something into the app. The only way I think they could improve the app would be by adding video capability. Not to watch what my child is doing in real time... but so they could video the children doing something fun, that could then be uploaded to the app. Like a dance party.

Okaaay. But could make it a bit better.
Our center uses this app. I love that I can see and get all of the updates on our littles throughout the day, but the app sometimes freezes up and the glitches are frustrating. Also, I don’t feel it’s the most user friendly set up to find what you’re looking for.

Notifications are very inconsistent

It doesn’t push notify reliably. My kiddo has diapers and food and pic updates awaiting me in the app and I don’t always know about it until I actually go and look to see if any updates have posted. Yes, all notifications are turned on and alerts permissions are on. Otherwise, it’s a great app

Very disappointed
I have been using this app for 5 yrs, last yr you did an update and required a charge that continue using the app. I did that, now all of a you want to charge a monthly subscription, for an app I already purchased. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. 100 percent unethical. It is fine if you want to charge new customers but not for those who already purchased your app and have been faithfully using it.
