Excellent Does everything I want to do on a mobile device to keep in touch, and I've even successfully taken quizzes. Instructure fixed the bug in which you couldn't open items from a notification if they're on a hidden class tab (my school is really into hiding tabs for some reason), so they get back their stars.
To solve my issue, I thought I could just go to the To-Do List and to find what I needed, but previous days are gone, and for some reason, that included the current day. I could only see what my upcoming assignments would be. This app is fine. It did what was needed and expected. It would be nice though if the To-Do List would show previous days still. For some reaseon, the current day's event is also gone. (This might be my teacher scheduling it for 12:00 or something the day of). Still, it would be a nice feature.
Useful but has issues I use this all the time for my schooling and for the most part it's great. I can Not submit any assignments from here though. Any interactive parts of my modules are blank, some quizzes won't load or are missing questions and sometimes the screen pops back up to the top of the page randomly. All in all, I still use it over my desktop.
URLs open in a tiny embedded browser This is really annoying for any app unless there is a really good reason to do it. FB does it to own the cookies. Flipboard does it when they don't have a flipped version. In the case of canvas, I don't see any value to either the user or Canvas. At least have an option (like FB does) to open external links in external browsers. I just started a class that uses Canvas and this is going to be immensely annoying if not fixed immediately.
Can't watch videos on Nexus 7? The reason! I downloaded this was so I can watch the videos on the go, but they won't play. I get the spinning icon only. If I click along the progress bar at the bottom I can see the slide corresponding to that point in time of the video but the video doesn't move on or make sound. Update: Works on my LG G4 but not my Nexus 7. I would have preferred watching on my larger screen with a longer lasting battery.
App doesn't work Our school uses Canvas for pretty much everything so I need the app on my Nexus tablet. Problem is, no matter how many different things I try, the app refuses to run. Thanks Canvas for making my school year very difficult.
