    Good morning! I was having difficulty downloading your apps via Edmodo using Edmodo credit. I wanted to download the Romeo and Juliet app and the Of Mice and Men app. I need them for two groups each (which, frankly, I believe is a disservice to high school teachers who teach five full classes, but I digress...). Please let me know if I am not doing something correctly.
    • Amanda Zeligs - Hi Ms. Spillane. Thanks for contacting us regarding this issue. I am sorry to hear that you encountered issues installing the StudySync apps. I am happy to report that these issues have now been resolved. If you would like assistance installing the apps, please let me know, and I will be happy to work with you on this matter. I hope this helps, and please let me know if there is anything else I can do :).
