Get Tapestry on your tablet and mobile
The Tapestry app is available for Apple, Android and Amazon Fire devices, putting all the essential Tapestry functionality right with you in the classroom. It is particularly helpful if you don’t have an internet connection all the time, don’t want your staff to be able to access Tapestry outside your school/setting, or if you want to lock down your devices so that users can’t access internet browsers.
The app has been purposefully simplified, meaning that whilst you and your children’s families can still add, view, and comment on observations, there are fewer distractions e.g. the analysis section. This makes it easier to use, quicker to load, and means practitioners spend less time behind a screen when they’re with the children.
Here are some of the key thing you can do with it:
- Add single child and group observations.
- Attach photos and videos from your device’s gallery.
- Take photos and videos through the app. If you like, you can set it so these are saved to Tapestry but not to your gallery.
- Make assessments (staff accounts only).
- Create drafts.
- Edit observations.
- Add and see clickable links within observations.
- View documents that have been attached to observations.
- Comment on and ‘Like’ observations.
- Receive push notifications.
- Filter which observations you see.
- View and add observations whilst offline.
It is an incredibly popular tool for parents as it allows them to instantly view and contribute to their child’s journal on the go, improving communication between them and you.
Of course, you can always access the browser version from your tablet/mobile device if you’d like to. It has been designed to be responsive to the size of your screen, so if you’re doing something that requires access to more features, then you can get to them with little effort or compromise in terms of usability.
If you’d like to have a look at it for yourself, take out a free trial – there is no obligation to purchase afterward (and we won’t take any card details to automatically bill you), it will last for 2 weeks, it will include all the functionality you’ll get in a paid account, and is, well, FREE!Free Trial Please!

Tracking for EYFS
Tapestry has a whole range of tracking screens for EYFS children covering a variety of frameworks and for both groups and individuals.
Use #hashtags in observations to identify key-phrases such as ‘#childinitiated’ or specific focus points e.g. #behaviour, as well as for categorising observations e.g. ‘#outdoors’.
Reduce your workload by making group observations for activities involving several children.
