Needs Updating 2/5
The app is severely out of date. I really like being able to use an app, but needs to be current. Also needs to be updated with the iOS 10.3 before app is removed.
Needs to update to 64Bit 3/5
By Axle Temple
I use this app frequency to quickly look at a syllabus on the go, and here in a few months, iOS will not support this app. It needs updated.
Actually Useless 1/5
The app is so slow I don't find it useful - I always go online to see my coursework.
Don't bother buying, it isn't helpful.
Please update 1/5
Please update this app. It works really poorly on iOS 10. It will not work at all when they release iOS 11. Please update.
Not a fan 1/5
While it can be helpful when not around a computer to check grades, it is not good in a lot of areas said to be available through this app. I don't dare attempt to post to discussions because it is even difficult to open certain files and others are not viewable at all on my iPhone. I think if Blackboard wishes to have a mobile app it definitely needs to be polished up
DOES NOT WORK on iphone 7 1/5
Ever since I got my iphone 7 this app does not work. I sign in and it says incorrect username or password, when I know its correct! Please fix and update asap!!!
needs a major update!! 1/5
This app haven't been updated in 2 1/2 years. The app works half the time. Always bugs out. It's slow. I keep on getting an apple notification saying this application might slow my iPad any to contact the developer and and request a 64- bit updated version ** hint,hint. If your going to charge for an app, it should be updated more frequently.
The only useful function of this app are the notifications.
Do not get this App for AF PME 1/5
I got this app to do my AWC on my IPad when I am on the road. Absolutely nothing works in it. The lessons will not load and you cannot take the test. It is useless. Don't waste your time or money.
If it worked it would be great 1/5
By fix your game niantic lol
90% of the time I open the app it won't sign me in, and the 10% of the time I can actually sign in and look at my classes it won't open things like documents and grades. The notifications work very well, and that is about the only useful part that works all the time.
Minimally functional. 1/5
Somehow I still get alerts, but the app itself literally never loads anything. Magical alerts, however...
Needs an update 1/5
Please update the app.
Major issues 1/5
This app has major issues. It's useful as a reference but that's about it. Nothing else seems to work and if it does it only works half the time.
Need to fix! 1/5
By Valencia's student
Great apps but to slow.
Please update for iPad Pro, latest operating platform. It would be so much better if it was 100% compatible with the most used platforms!
Could be great 2/5
This is a great app WHEN it works. It has so much potential. Someone PLEASE fix it!!
So much potential but falls short 1/5
I really had hoped this app would work efficiently. It failed to load files that had been uploaded by my instructor and I couldn't follow along with the PowerPoint in class. So disappointed. Please update or do whatever is needed to get it working to its full potential.
Overall, the app is very useful. However, an update would be perfect. The update should include new features.
Update needed 2/5
Attachments doesn't load properly. It cuts off and can't scroll through the pages. This is a good app for many college students. But it's time to update for better compatibility for newer phone system.
Nothing loads half of the time. I have to force quit the app just to have it load the main screen often.
Useless to me now 2/5
I had this for checking my grades and looking up documents, and it would work most of the time. But now that I decided to update from ios 9, it always freezes when I turn it on. I might keep it so it sends notifications, since they still work somehow. But if you have ios 10 you may as well just use your internet browser instead of this.
App works 1/20 times I try to use it. I try to use it and the loading arrow is there forever. The app never has updates so the poor compatibility makes the phone slower. Awful app
good for basic usage 4/5
By Rob Ireton
Allows in-app viewing of documents as well as export to other applications. Works well with all device orientations and sizes.
Not every feature is implemented—some fall back to the website version—but most of what I use is there.
Super Handy 5/5
This app is great for quickly checking the calendar or looking at documents when on the go! It's easy to use and handy all around.
Cant get lectures to import into notability
Handy when it works 2/5
Seriously, this app not only slows down my phone, but almost never works. When it does work, it's really handy and gives easy access to the online information for my classes. But the majority of the time I get the loading symbol, & nothing happens.
Add an option to save login info 4/5
By @_SoSquishy (Follow me!:)
Just PLEASE make it possible to save usernames and passwords. I only really use the app to look at updated grades, and it works just fine for that. However, it's really inconvenient to have to log in each time.
Update Please?!? 1/5
Can we please get an update for this app? When I open the app it literally tells me that the app needs to be updated by the programmers. Plus the app is completely unusable except in giving me notifications on my grades being updated. I really wish the app worked so I don't have to hop into safari and log on every time. Thanks!
I receive notifications but the app will not load up the content. It just sits and spins continuously.
Crashes more than it works 1/5
My iPad just gave me a notice that this app will slow my iPad and need to be updated by the developers. Please work on this BB. I am forced to use your product by my school at least make it a decent product.
Needs update desperately 1/5
The app would be fine if there weren't so many bugs and what not. It needs an update so badly that my phone warns me that the app is slowing the phone down.
Logs you out and deletes your work 1/5
This app continually logs you out! The "best" part is that if you're doing a discussion board, email, or any other writer it deletes it with giving you an option to save the draft. I was doing a discussion board And my finger slipped and tapped the menu button. It went to the main screen but when I clicked back, it was gone. 800+ words f---ing GONE. What a waste of time and space. Deleting the app.
Worst app ever
Update this piece of crap please
Can't Even Log In! 1/5
I started downloading it before I read all of the negative reviews.
After downloading, I selected the university I attend, entered my student ID, which is what I use to log into the desktop version, & my password, but got a notification it was incorrect (it isn't; I can log into the desktop site with the exact same info). So, I tried my university email address as my login & got the same result.
I am deleting the app after finishing this review.
I would not recommend downloading this app. Just read all of the negative comments. They are warranted. This app has issues.
Complete garbage. 1/5
What a garbage app. It's seriously such a joke!!!! It slows down your phone, the app does not work most of the time. Documents do not load, VERY DISAPPOINTED!! Thanks for such a piece of crap app.
Useless for professors 1/5
It's almost completely useless if you are a professor. If they wanted it to be great, they would give us a way to post grades from a mobile, have our announcements emailed immediately, send email to students, post documents...
It lets you post non urgent announcements and view docs, so it's better than nothing. But barely.
Needs major changes
It is faster and easier to use a web browser. This program is broken on so many levels. Just use the website.
Please fix! 2/5
This app would be great to have if it did work so please fix it! Currently it doesn't really work at all...
Please update the app 1/5
Please update the app
Y'all need to update this app. There are plenty of areas to improve on.
By James Pruden
This app needs update. The dashboard is a mess with classes scrambled onscreen. Even the iPhone suggesting that the app needs to be updated.
Completely useless 1/5
If I could give 0 stars I would.
One of the worst apps I've ever used 1/5
By Applooks likecrap
Nothing good I can say about this app. It's buggy, crashes constantly, takes forever to load anything and a lot of times it doesn't at all. Hasn't been updated to fit anything bigger than an iPhone 5s. With as many users of blackboard as there are it blows my mind they have such a terrible app. Especially considering how simple it would need to be.
Awesome!! A+ 5/5
Don't be lazy!! Download & check it out for yourself!
Bad reviews about the app seem to be from lazy folks that have gotten too comfortable with apps & think that all apps like this are a complete replacement for their full web versions & that's just not the case!
- This app is mostly for viewing only.
- I wanted a quick way to check & view my grades w/o having to log into the full web, & this app does this part amazingly!
- I can view my course & course material & that's awesome!
- Don't be lazy & rely on an app to do what its full counterpart was designed for, and you'll be satisfied.
For me, it's perfect.
It won't hurt to try it & if it does not satisfy, you've not lost but 5 mins of time, time which you've saved anyway by not logging onto the web.
A+ for my needs!!
Crashes a lot and never loads classes 1/5
Crashes a lot and never loads classes
Needs an update 2/5
application needs an update rolled out!! Very useful but, needs optimized for the new iOS and new devices.
Has potential... 1/5
Doesn't always work.
Great improvement 5/5
By Paige Ana
I used to think this was the worst app to be available to human kind.
And here I am, 1 year later, finding myself installing the app once again bc we all deserve second chances. Saying it has improved greatly would be an understatement. Fast, smooth, and easy.
iOS 11 64bit version needed 3/5
Please update version to be used with iOS 11
