Used this app before and was able to search for University of Toronto. But, when I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it for the second time, I wasn't able to find my school's name... The app itself was great, didn't have to pay for any and constantly updates me on latest postings, grades, and assignments. That itself, I will give 4 stars. So basically, I had the convenience of checking my work on a regular basis, to having to log in every time on the browser to check, all because I can't find a school. It didn't make any sense because a lot of my classmates said they searched for it school's name and found it. This is the reason why I'm giving this app an overall of 2 stars.
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?
Blackboard Shelton state community college requires it based on instructors decision. It's nice to look at and I like the personal touch added from the last update but it still needs a lot of work. It's slow to load and update. I wish we could add notes onto our home screen or just had a place for notes at all.
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.
What happened? This app used to be great. But after these recent updates, things have sucked. I don't recieve any notifications although I have them all check marked in the settings. Also the little number next to the course title won't go away even after I click on the "new content" that has been posted. Fix that please
Easier to just use web browser The point of the app is to provide convenience, but it's easier and more time efficient to use a mobile web browser for BlackBoard. Certain areas of the site are inaccessible on the app, it doesn't remember credentials and makes you type in your info every time you log on, and the widget just flat out doesn't work. I really wish they'd improve this app, it could be ever so useful. Luckily, I was never asked to pay for it, or I'd be piiiiissed.
