Review from Christina Fayz
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 worked quite well for the last three months until my school stopped showing in the server. Error MSG was a "We're unable to reach your institution's server". No bueno
It's been great so far except for one very very annoying thing. I've been getting multiple notifications for the same assignment after being marked. I've had the exact same notification at least six times. Once is quite sufficient thank-you!!!
Can't open any documents to save my life. If I have a blackboard app, I want to be able to open the documents. Y'all got rid of the last blackboard app and replaced it with a terrible one. Horrible.
Aw, I really liked the little animations, made it really polished, shame they're gone. It's still far better than the earlier stoneaged version, BRING BACK THE ANIMATIONS AS AN OPTION!
This app is reliable, fast, and very intuitive. My favorite things about this app are: how the first thing you see are the class announcements, which is incredibly handy, and that the grades are color coded, which makes quick work of finding the assignment that's bringing your overall grade down
There's no notifications.. at all.. What's the use of it ?! The app before it has notifications.. Letting you know everything.. Assignments , announcements .. etc.. But this one .. useless.. 😡😠
