Very convenient! The ease of navigating Blackboard right at your fingertips. The app will keep you logged in and is much more user friendly than the desktop website. Notifications are easier to read and the your classes and class content are organized neatly and visually appealing. There are a few bug issues I hope the developers will fix in the near future. I will be waiting to see if they acknowledge those that are mentioned by their users.
Do not pay for this, junk!!!!!!!!!! My institution gives me access to Blackboard Mobile for free so I've tried to use this for years off an on and it just doesn't work. When it will sign in it is great but 90% of the time it never loads and you just end up looking at the swirl for a few minutes. I have an Ipad at nd it is the same on it too, I don't know why they won't address these issues. If they ever work on it and get it to work it will be great but seeing I've been trying it for almost 2 years I don't think that's going to happen.
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?
Well it's pretty. It's colorful and simple. A perfect IOS clone. However, loading times are way too long regardless of Internet speed. (using Google Fiber). But the biggest issue and the reason I'm Uninstalling is because it doesn't remember your username and password. It is much easier and quicker to check blackboard via your Internet browser app that remembers your information and allows you to log in to check your grade quickly.
Extremely helpful app I just started online classes and thanks to this app, I can use my phone like a laptop. I haven't had any of the issues mentioned in these reviews. If you can make the content more customizable and fix the the threads on the blogs so they don't go back to top after you read each one, I'll give 5 stars.
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
