Description

Homeroom is the easiest way for teachers to share what's happening in their classroom with students' parents. Upload photos safely to private classroom albums only parents and teachers can see, away from social media and the internet.

Simple for teachers:
• Open the classroom: Show parents all the fun their kids are having
• Exceptionally simple: Share photos and videos quickly and easily

Amazing for parents:
• Stay informed: Get alerts when teachers post new updates
• Collaborate: Assign other teachers and parents to post to the album

Totally private albums:
• Start conversations: Add comments and like photos
• Stay informed: Get alerts when teachers post new updates

How it works:
1. Create: Make one or more albums for your homeroom
2. Invite: Send invitations to your kids' parents
3. Share: Post photos and videos of your students

Homeroom gives parents a window into the classroom:
• Worry-free privacy: All content is only visible to members of the album
• Apps for everyone: Access Homeroom through gorgeous mobile apps and the web
• Relevant updates: Parents only get notifications for their kids' classes

Built by the team that created Cluster, featured as a Best New App in the App Store

 Free in iOS App Store

Oct 17
2015
Version 2.5

We’ve optimized the app for iOS 9 and added some great shortcuts for the new iPhone 6s/6s Plus!

* (iOS 9) iPad multitasking support all over. The app can work in Slide Over, Split View and even Side-By-Side modes!
* (6s/6s Plus) Quick Actions on the app icon to go the most recent albums
* (6s/6s Plus) Peek/Pop support all over the app. Now you can:
- Peek a gallery image to see its likes and comments!
- When adding a photo, you can peek a larger preview!
- Peek from the album list and see the recent activity
- Peek any person's avatar to see their profile
* Added: landscape support for non-miniscule phones. This works great on iPhone 6 Plus and 6s Plus, because you get the split view experience!

* Fixed: (iOS 9): Open links in the app when possible, so you don't bounce over to Safari
* Fixed: The keyboard would sometimes annoyingly dismiss while you were writing your comments, causing you accidentally post an unfinished comment!
* Fixed: Sometimes you were not taken back to your album next app start
* Fixed: UI becoming glitchy when searching your albums

With all these updates and moving to support iOS 9 and multitasking all over, we had to drop support for iOS 7. The old version will keep working, don't worry. However, we really encourage you to update your devices to iOS 9 if possible. If you were turned off from updating because you were worried about performance issues, iOS 9 is much nicer on older devices than iOS 8. Jump in!

We really appreciate you using this app to share your pictures and videos with your close friends! Thank you for using the app and as always, we love hearing from you!
