This app is such a disappointment - since the new ODMS system upgrade, none of the information will sync from the iPad to the data system online. Now the app is telling me I can't take anymore recordings until I sync my data, but nothing syncs! HUGE disappointment, especially since we spent $100 to purchase all the book levels. I would advise not to purchase until all the kinks have been worked out.
This would be a great app if someone could figure out how to make it work right. Since purchasing this app I have actually wasted more time having to: Sync the IPAD and having to log in to the odms to make sure that it synced, having to input the data from the app manually into the odms due to the apps inability to sync, deleting the app and restoring to try to get it to function right, sorting through the running records that I emailed myself to try to retrieve some of the lost data, and of course waiting for the ODMS to load. Not sure why but this system is the slowest I've seen since "dial-up".
I can't do anything with the app because it keeps crashing before I even get the chance to do anything. Once this is fixed I will change my review. Please fix it because I really need to do reading records electronically because I have so many kids. Think of all the trees I could save with this app!!
Finally, I can do F&P Reading Records electronically! App works great...but do spend some time practicing as recommended in the description / introduction because this app has lots of bells and whistles!
If you are using iOS 7, don't bother with this app. Before the upgrade, this was a fantastic app to accompany the Leveled Literacy Intervention program. I was rocking it, but now......nothing. Please fix this before the end of the school year!
