It's honestly a good app when it works but it often ends up crashing and lagging/freezing a lot and having to reinstall it to get it to function properly. These issues are very prominent in the 'My UW' section and 'search and enroll' app. All it really needs is a little more attention and reworking and it can be really good.

Very unpolished and keeps crashing. I try to send crash report data- but if I do I have to uninstall and reinstall the app. It's just too bad. UW Madison admins may not ever use this app, but 3/4ths of students do. It's odd that you put so much effort into cleaning admin buildings no one but yourselves go into-- but when it comes to an app everyone else uses- you leave it a dilapidated mess. It's embarrassing and makes your school look low quality.

Simple and extremely easy to use. I wish buildings were able to be looked up by Facility ID as well, but that would just be a convenience of life feature useful for university employees.
