Love being able to have a conversation with my ex and be able to have proof of what all was said to where it is not only easily accessible, but also admissible in court. Love the fact that none of the messages can be deleted or edited. It time stamps when you or they posted comments then time stamps when the other read it. So there is no saying that you never told me this or I never got that message. The calendar is amazing also. Not only to be able to keep up with appointments for the kids, but it time stamps everything as well. So now when my ex adds that doctors appt the night before I can now provide proof that they aren’t giving me enough heads up to be able to attend the appt. Only thing I would change is when requesting a record, I don’t always need every single conversation. Maybe just the first and third threads that were posted in. Also the calendar you shouldn’t be able to delete events. Instead just edit them saying cancelled or something like that. I have messed with the journal part of it as of yet. But I’ve only been fully using it for a little over a week. Highly recommend this for anyone who has gone through separation that involves children. Just so that you can always protect yourself.
Please remove the exclamation point that is tacked on to every notification. It says “New Message!” as if to imply that we should be excited... If you are using this app, chances are pretty good that your level of enthusiasm about a new TalkingParents message is not on par with that of an Instagram like. Otherwise the app is pretty good, sans some periodic connectivity issues.
We shouldn’t have to log on to a web browser to talk to the other parent. It’s ridiculous. Some areas don’t have very good service and the browser doesn’t work. And only the app works at that moment. It should be free on the app and not the browser.
Cool. Going to try it but what usefulness is it to me when my mother’s primary language is Spanish. Would be cool to see translation feature.
I don’t like how every Month it makes me upgrade service just to use app then I have t remember to cancel upgrade.
I’m stuck using this because of narcissistic high conflict ex spouse. I love the idea of an app but the steep price of 4.99 was not appealing considering most of the people using this program are going through a tough court battle and don’t have that much extra money to spare. Regardless for many months I used it because it’s a pain to check your email then log into the TP website where as the app would send you a notification then go directly to the message. Now it’s $10 a month extremely overpriced. There’s no justifying paying that amount, on any level, no matter how many features it includes. Many should make a dumbed down version that ad supported and/or a .99/1.99 for basic texting.
I’m a little confused. I’ve used this app in the past and I don’t remember being forced into having to buy a premium subscription in order to use it. I don’t need all the bells and whistles that comes with a premium subscription, I just need to be able to write communications (if I’m not at my computer) and I just need to have a notification when I receive a communication.
It’s a poor app. Have more problems with it then normal texting. Honestly not worth $10.00 a month.
I love this app it really help with conversations and tracking any problems your situation is having but the calendar is crazy! Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. It freezes and won’t let me click on the day I’m trying to add into calendar. It drives me crazy. I really need this fixed or else I’m afraid father will stop using it. Otherwise great app.
