    "This is an amazing app. I have been looking for some free software for my classroom and this app is exactly what I need. It seems to have thought of everything and because it is made my Google, I trust it to work properly. There are a few negative reviews and it is not the top rated app in Education, but I like this app and it works for me. Although, I will admit I am curious to see what app people like more than this gem!"
