App FAQ's

App News

  • The app has caught a cold… a bug so to speak.  We are aware of it and are working on it.  Apple released an update to their iOS operating system which has impacted the ability to login to the app on iPhones and iPad’s.  It is not affecting those folks that use Android smart devices.  We have some very talented people working to solve the problem and we hope to have a fix for this very soon.  We have received feedback from customers but wanted to share it with you that “we are working on it”.  The error in question is “error 400, login.html”.

Q.  We already pay for our Homeschool-Life service, why do we have to pay $2.99 for the app?
A. Our goal is to provide an affordable service with top level customer support.  We can keep the cost to the groups lower by charging a nominal one-time fee of $2.99 to help defray the cost of app development and future app development.  Keep in mind that this is only a one time fee.   App development is long term and very costly as it's specialized.  We also have a human element in app development support and we need to pay our homeschool support staff as they support this new service.  We also want to provide the best product to you.  We are continually upgrading our service to you and did not want to slow the development pace down by having to divert funds for app costs.  In the last year alone, we have tripled our development costs to bring you the absolutely best web service.  We received advice from those that develop apps that setting a small cost for the app increaes the ownership in the app and your group web site.

Q. Can I belong to 2 homeschool groups and still use the app?
A. Yes, first login to the app, then select Settings and enter your multiple login information into the additional group area.  Your login and password need to be unique for each homeschool group you belong to.  If not, please change it by logging into your group web site and select "Edit My Profile".

Q. Is the app available for Android operating system versions 2.1 or later?
A.  Android supports apps that are developed for Android operating systems 2.2 or later.

Q. Is the app ready for iOS7?
A. Yes, we tested extensively under iOS7.
