User Experience could be better I use multiple devices for school, so accessing all my class docs through this app is convenient. However, some parts of the user experience feel incomplete. Pressing the back button on my Note4, for instance, does not scroll backwards through the previously visited pages in the app, but sends me all the way back to the opening screen to select an institution again. Some documents just won't open on my mobile phone. A reply and improvement to those issues will warrant an updated review.
It's OK but I never receive notifications of anything! And I have all of them on. Having two jobs and school, I rely on this type of apps to make my life easier. I almost missed my online test because it didn't notify me. It wasn't even showing there was something new when I checked. Good thing I trust my intuition. Something as simple as notifications can't be done? Come on, guys!!
App no longer works This app used to be a very efficient way to stay updated while on the go, but now the app functions poorly. It does not allow you to use the free version because it continually kicks you out of blackboard to buy the extended version. It is extremely disappointing, since this app has great potential, but is losing its credibility as a useful blackboard tool. Strongly advise to not download the app.
Login Issues 80% of the time it doesn't let me log in and kicks me back to the screen where I select my school. I'm sure my password is correct. I also deleted it and re-downloaded it and now it says my school (UMKC) is not offered and the guy next to me in class is logged in. Please fix. (I have a Galaxy Note 3)
Added profile picture without my permission All of a sudden, Blackboard has a picture of me that i never gave permission for it to use. Albeit only visible on this app, for some reason not on the actual website, the photo is still of a 13 year old me and is unprofessional. I have no option to remove it, just like i did not have an option to add it onto this app. On the actual website, it shows i have no profile picture.. so why do i have a 5 year old picture of myself on here without explicity adding it?
Convenient for me but there's space to improve My institute used this. It is very convenient whenever i forgot to carry my notes into class or i could check my assignments immediately without switching on my computer. While I'm enjoying these , i found it auto log out sometimes. It took me another little while to log in. Please fix this
