Review from L H
Terrible app! Don't bother installing unless you LOVE receiving the same notification 50 times a day. When I click on the notification it just brings me to the activity stream instead of where the notification is coming from. Lol what a terrible app.
I have been using the Blackboard application for the last two semesters. I prefer the application over the website. Simply put, the website has it's issues that don't translate over to this application. This app is clean, and organized pretty well. The UI is very user friendly. Also, being able to receive updates for my classes on the go is really convenient. I use the Blackboard app daily, as of yet I haven't faced any crashes. This app has a quality build, and a nice appeal.
Lots of notifications, don't go away until you silence the app meaning tapping on them doesn't work to make them disappear. And as of a recent update I can't even read the assignment text, I can only see when it is due and what files are attached, therefore I have to go on the browser version to even see what my assignment is. This app needs some serious work.
Literally no other app in the history of all apps has such an issue with notifications. I get 15+ notifications at the same time, multiple times a day. It is ridiculous, and incredibly annoying. Why is this the only app with these issues? GET IT TOGETHER, DEVELOPERS!
Significantly worse than the old version. My professors often upload things that just don't show up in the new version of this app. It's so unreliable that I pretty much just go through the Chrome browser on my phone to access Blackboard. I also receive the same notifications for the same announcements over and over despite dismissing them.
it's ok to use for simple things, but has some issues. Notifications - nearly always keeps giving the same notifications over and over again - this is the single reason for 2 stars. Being able to download all course content is good, but the app doesn't sync - when more content is added you have to manually tell the app to download it.
I love this app. It definitely makes things a lot easier. The only downside is the same notifications will repeat throughout the day. Even after I read and dismiss them. Also, if I get a new notification within 24 hrs, all of the old notifications will pop up again.
