Review from Oliver Leung
The designers of this app are Neanderthals - that's my only assumption from the fact that I can't even open pdf's anymore. I really hope that one day, someone will come out with a better app/website so that we don't have to suffer through the results of lazy software developers.
Unusable. The old app was at times a bit buggy but was still functional and suited it's purpose. The only reason I even tried this app is because the old app is no longer supported by the developers. I know have to find an alternative way of accessing my course content because this app is completly non functionable. If I could give negative stars, I would
This app is just not working. I find it to be annoying. I get a grade put in on an assignment I look at it but then I get notifaction six times of the same grade every 30 minutes for two days in a row. If I didn't have to use this app believe me I would not. On top of all that. No one ever responds to the negative comments about this app. Is anyone even reading these.
Constantly sends notifications once a grade has been posted, probably up to 5 times even after I have seen my grade. the app is handy because it's easy to nagivate but it requires bug fixes. Seems like more people have issues with it than benefit.
Seems like they fixed a lot of kinks. I'm not having issues with over the top notifications, the animations are simple enough to dismiss them, my links work, opening up files works just fine (I have both Google Docs & OfficeSuitePro installed & I have a choice). It runs smooth on my old LG Stylo Pro 2 Plus - a mid range phone that doesn't have the specs of a flagship phone.
The old application worked. For me until the Fall 2917 semester ended. I could not log in for whatever reason and was finally forced to press help. I read that the service was discontinued in August of 2017. Not pleased with this. The universities not listed probably don't even know this is an issue.
I really enjoy the app for the most part. The only problem I have with it, which is kinda big, is that I get too many notifications for the same assignment. It seems random and clogs my notifications. I know I can turn it off completely, however, I would like a notification for all my assignments due, but just once. Not every 30 min. If that gets fixed, this app would be a 5/5 app, however, it needs to be fixed.
With the Blackboard app, you can now download course files and view them offline when you have limited or no internet connectivity. We’ve also fixes various bugs in this release.
