Review from Matt Wright
Much better! Now it has everything I need to have a better Canvas experience at school. The reason I only put 4 stars (it actually should be 4.5 stars) is because it needs to be optimized a little better for tablets now. But other than that, awesome!
It's very useful and helpful and keeps me organized, but I have one thing I don't like as much. Taking quizzes and tests is not very easy and I have had times where my test is missing answers that I've filled out, affecting my score. Other than that, it's great!
This app seems to be very glitchy. I frequently have to go to my instructors to fix my tests because the app either submitted blank questions or incorrect answers. I'm also having issues with receiving my school emails on this app. Several other students in my classes have this same issue. I use both a Samsung Galaxy S7 Active and the S3 Note
A little polish would go a long way. Push notification behavior is inconsistent. Most of the time, tapping on a Canvas notification in your notification pane does not load that notification, but just opens the app to the first screen. However once in a while, it does load it (weird). The other thing that bugs is it's difficult to find any explanation as to the differences of push notifications (discussion, discussion post, all submissions, conversation, etc.). I'll probably figure this one out over time, but some question mark icon with an explanation next to the options would be great.
Can't log into Webstar, Canvas, or use most of the resources links after last update! it shows them as locked. I try to log in but says invalid. I know for sure I'm inputting the right info. was working great before update
While the app is nice for on the go, I have a few issues with it. The course list does not update itself with each term. For example, my dashboard still list course(s) from Summer 2016. The interface sometimes presents me a with an incompatible "browser" presenting the quiz I want to take instead of just allowing me to take a quiz. If it is possible for an instructor to disallow taking a quiz on a phone, then Canvas needs to indicate so and degrade gracefully.
Frustrated that after a recent update, the text field when in a reply (specifically a reply, not a new message), doesn't allow predictive text. It seems to be interpreted (by all keyboards on my phone) as a non-predictive field. Makes typing back to students cumbersome.
Added support for quiz improvements.
