Pros: Things I like most about School Diary are -

- A single platform for all school communications

- Instant photograph sharing from school

- Calendar and reminders for school events

- Highly accurate bus tracking and notification system

- Unified payment within the product

- One to one communication with teachers

It's a one stop app for all my communications to my son's school. It provides me window to observe the progress of my son's education. Provides me timely feedback to take corrective action. This app is easy to use, engaging and effective at the same time.

Cons: Initially there were some bugs in the software and UI was not great, but the School Diary team has solved them quickly. Not only that they have also added new features frequently. Over a period this app has become indispensable for me. I am sure this team is constantly working on the product and will keep improving.

Overall lot of manual effort is saved everyday which can be used in other productive activities.

Pros: Homework communication, informing the parents about all school events and sharing everyday pics is where this is most useful. There's still lot of scope for improvement, but it has become an integral part of our system. The support team is quick to respond which helps a lot. After being used to communication through the app, its not possible to switch back because of ease of operation and time saving.

Cons: There are few limitations like video sharing is not possible and Day care module which needs to be revised. Sometimes msgs also get delayed, but overall it can be relied upon.

Overall: Time and effort saving. Homework and other important communications are reaching in parents hands directly. Pictures and msgs can be shared individually or in smaller groups/class wise.

Pros: It is ideal since it is a mobile platform, most if not all parents have phones or mobile devices today, and this app will keep you informed of any news that comes from your children's school and will also keep you alert of events scheduled at the school for which his presence is necessary, behaves like an agenda.

We can not forget to emphasize that it's free.
