It's OK. It helps out for seeing and replying to o messages on the go, but you can't access any course materials through the app. So doing any sort of homework with the app can't happen. If they spend more time giving the app more capability, it would help out a lot. I should be able to do everything I need for a class right from the app. That way I am always connected to my class. Right now I can look at something but if I have a task to do I have to get to a computer.
Are you committed? University of Phoenix is an excellent educational mobile application. If Internet is available, the option to do school work is possible. That includes a coffee house. You can create rough draft responses or replies. Review them and edit, if needed, before final upload. I did 3 days of responses, replies and answers at a remote campsite. I worked hard to submit my assignments before Wednesday. My vacation was possible from Friday through Sunday.
What happened? Initially this app was performing excellently, although, there are a few syllabus courses and eBooks that could not be loaded due to outside avenues where they have to be performed on a non-mobile device. As of recently, the app no longer loads and it says it cannot reach the server with every attempt to login. I have disabled/uninstalled/logged out completely with zero change once reinstalled. It's a shame because this was a go to when out and about and was quite convenient to have on the hip.
Because my class is on campus and I don't physically start until Wednesday, I'm am going to give 3 stars. I was able to access all the content from the workshop I did but I can't access my class material. I would love to be able to sit on my couch or in a nice setting, as suggested in my reading material. But unfortunately, I am stuck in front of a computer because the app will not open my current reading material. I will reevaluate after my class has started and I see if I have access at that time.
Love This App But... I really like this app. im a student @ the UOP & this really helps to keep track of everything. But the only thing I have an issue with is that it doesn't let you view class messages. Some teachers post DQ's to the classroom messages tab and it would be nice if we could get their via our mobile device and also it would be nice if we can upload assignments from other devices than just the computer. Please fix ! Thanks ! #SorryThisReviewWasSoLong
The app is good but it doesn't support all of the video and Gamescape assignments. I have bought more tablets and laptops to accommodate these classes and finally just bought a 2-in-1 because the work I need to be able to work on while on the go isn't supported by Phoenix for Android phones. Neither does it allow you to download the ebooks and open them up for reading on the go.
