1) Synchronization. You will be able to effortlessly talk to your class through our multiple platforms.
2) Replacing slow email communication. One place where everyone can communicate. Push notifications for every post.
Ex: You have a classroom announcement you want to make; you can now simply pull out your phone (or go on the website), and make a post. Everyone in the class is sent a push notification to their phones, as well as an email for that post. Same to students, they have a question, they pull out their phone & ask the class/professor, everyone gets a push notification and an email.
3) Ease of setup. We know professors are used to heavy software that have tutorials and are hard to learn. This will be easier than Facebook to use. We also have 24/7 support, this should save time from your day, not add to it.

The app is cool, but I don't like how you have to download every picture in order to see it.
Love it! So much easier to use than Blackboard!
As an adjunct professor for online classes, building community is difficult to say the least. PiApp is a huge leap forward in bridging that gap and it does so with a clean, intuitive interface.
Such a great class resource. I've never had so much fun using an education app before. I just wish all my professors used Pi.
