So, about 50% of the time I really like this app! I think the UI is pretty and more user-friendly than the actual desktop site is. I also really like getting alerts when there is a new grade. The issue is the other 50%. I am notified of a new grade roughly five times per grade, even if I go check the grade through the first reminder. Also, links to the discussion boards work maybe one out of every five times I try to access them, which is a real problem because most of my required assignments are on the boards.
the app tells me I don't have an internet connection when I try to go to "my grades". Sends me repeated notifications about the same exact grade being updated but doesn't send me any about uploaded content. The mobile learn version may have had a less user friendly interface and may not have been as pretty but it is definitely better than whatever this is. I'm in college and my school uses blackboard for various things, having the app for blackboard is a very helpful thing, but not with this version.
Unfortunately the update hasn't helped the app much or at all. I've been getting kicked out of the app and having to log in again. It sometimes makes me select my school again as well. When I was logged in, I did notice that important captions were left off of items that were added by teachers. It would be nice to include those notes whenever the app find it's footing.
It won't stop notifying me with the identical notification throughout the day, even if I click it to open the app. It always reappears. If it worked better overall, it would be good to use but the website version of blackboard is 99 times better than this app. Galaxy S7 edge
Honestly I don't see what all the negative reviews are for considering the new update seems great. My only problem is that it will notify me of a grade a few times, not just once. It's a little annoying but the app has never crashed and I have submitted assignments and even looked at my previous work. I love it!
Well it's a lot more user friendly than the last one, so kudos. The only problem is that I keep getting like 7 notifications telling me I got a new grade. I don't need to be reminded that many times that my grade sucked. How would you like it if I just told you 7 times in a row I had something to say about your app, but it was just the same crappy comment..... Fix it Fix it Fix it Fix it Fix it Fix it Fix it
