  • Serious issues 1/5

    By Jlpotter
    I like to participate in my classes on a daily basis which means I need my phone whenever I get some downtime and I’m away from my laptop. Problem is that I can’t participate in discussion questions and most of the time I get an “x” at the bottom of my screen that says “somethings not right”. Early versions of this app were buggy by I was able to get by. Now this app isn’t catered to anyone. Solutions: -Fix the problem with the discussion board. -Allow students to post assignments without having to go back through the web page to make sure they were submitted, because it never loads out to a confirmation page. Edit: -Cannot participate in discussion boards which is why I wanted the app. -app still crashes when you open it from time to time. -modules for the current week of assignments in corrupted and fails to open up always. UPDATE -still cannot participate in discussion boards -modules are still corrupted. -app crashes from time to time still
  • Bug glitches 2/5

    By TFletch92
    For the most part the app works fairly well, but whenever I try to open “reading and viewing assignments” it never fails that the app crashes and closes out. Very tough as I work a busy schedule and this app is the best possible way for me to keep on top of schoolwork.
  • Send help 1/5

    By Patty1595
    When I first downloaded this app it worked perfectly. Went back on to check it for a second time and now it won't even log in saying my credentials are incorrect. Help!
  • Due dates 3/5

    By Mom3rc
    I like that I can access my classroom for MSU but all my due dates are off by a day.
  • Awesome since yesterday 1/5

    By COYG_avid_football_fan
    It is now in a perpetual state of the log in window appearing and disappearing. I can't use any of the functions of view my classes because it keeps trying to log in. Please fix
  • I’m surprised this is allowed. 1/5

    By AtlGli
    First off, invest some money into a mobile compatible website. It’s one of the worst thought out designs and doesn’t even allow you to utilize half of the features. Now, this app. It’s almost as bad as the mobile website. Horrible interface and UI. Navigating the app requires a masters degree in Blackboardonomics. It’s ridiculous. You’ve had many, many attempts to get this right. How hard can it be?
  • Grades don’t show 2/5

    By beachchick21
    The app doesn’t let me view my grades. Under that section for each class, it says “You’re in the right place to check your grades. After your instructor grades your work, scores will appear here.” But I log onto Safari and all my grades show up.
  • Notification stop 1/5

    By prisspl
    I download the app but the first day i was receive all the notification but now my teacher put the grade but i didnt receive any notification .
  • Please fix the notification 1/5

    By R10sh
    there is a problem with the notification!! please fix it as soon as impossible !!!!
  • UPDATE THIS APP!!!! 1/5

    This app was fine before I got my new phone. Update it for iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X!!!!!
  • Hot garbage 2/5

    By Bhayes444
    The layout is not very good, but the biggest pile of disappointment this app offers is being able to submit assignments. You can’t select multiple files at once, and must add them one at a time. Once you submit you need to wait quite a while to make sure it actually submitted since it fails to do so half the time. When it fails you have to add everything back again, one by one. Just a terrible app...
  • So helpful when you’re on the go! 4/5

    By Smashley23
    Since they updated the discussion board, this app is my go to for school! Many of my classes revolve around the discussion board and having access right from my phone is simply amazing. Not a huge fan of the layout, I often times close a window that on accident. Otherwise, it’s my lifeline for school.
  • Needs update 1/5

    By Monalish
    Incompatible with iPhone update.
  • Not impressed. 1/5

    By sLexi!
    This app is straight up awful. Nothing loads and I can’t access anything. Get the old app back the “mobile learn”.
  • Worked Great Until Today 3/5

    By Borufan3
    The interface was brilliant until today. I’ve been logged out and now every time I try to log in it says “License error”. I deleted and re-downloaded the app and it still says “license error” and keeps me logged out. Yesterday the app was working perfectly and I could access all my professors’ notes and now it’s useless. I hope this gets fixed soon since it’s so close to my final project deadline.
  • Terrible 1/5

    By Acyett
    Great app if you want to have to re-log in every time you click on something... waste of time. You’re better off logging in on safari or google chrome. Save the space on your phone!
  • BB working much better 4/5

    By clohrke
    Recent improvements on this BB app much better than the other prior one. Thanks, keep improving 😃
  • Amanda Min 3/5

    By A Mc
    It would be nice to have a chart for the letter grades the colors are for. I mean I have a good idea but I’d like to glance at the colors and know what letter grade I have instead of looking it up all the time.
  • So convenient, I use it every day! 5/5

    By Very satisfied costumer!
    I know that this app has a pretty bad rating, but I'm pretty sure it must have gotten better after a few upgrades because I don't have any issues with the current app! Checking grades, looking at assignments, and even taking online quizzes is easy to do without having to log into your computer every time! Plus, it'll always keep you logged in :)
  • Crap 1/5

    By Lalablahp
    I’ve already missed two assignments with this app and an exam because it gets the dates wrong. Thanks a lot.
  • Discussions a mess 1/5

    By Cheesensalad
    The discussion board since the big update has been so difficult to maneuver! There is no pattern to the posts (not by time or author or anything) and my classes require that I am able to see the posts in order. Please fix this!
  • Keeps crashing 2/5

    By Plrdqctfv
    This update has resulted in crashes
  • Horrible 1/5

    By Peoplearecil
    This app is such trash. I’d give it zero stars if i could.
  • Mobile Learn Transfer 2/5

    By NikkiGalvez09
    I really love the simplicity of the Mobile Learn App, I was not aware there was a new app, I wrote a complaint of it not opening a month ago and did research on their website just to find they have a totally new app today, ...a blast email to all students would have helped, but the new app works great, it’s a change going to be some getting used to. Love how the other one was more customizable hopefully they’ll bring back features of the other one. Good luck everyone it will be okay!
  • Last update feedback 3/5

    By LOLXDXDXDfjvrykcaqyjkvdsf
    The app crashes after 5 seconds of opening it.... DO SOMETHING
  • okay 3/5

    By Katocha-lol
    it's got a decent interface and allows access to the lessons but you can't change the default color for the lessons and as someone who color codes my classes (one class green, another blue, etc) that's incredibly annoying when I can't make my blue class display as blue and not yellow (because I can never remember the name of the class). even just making them all grey would be better at least then I wouldn't get my classes mixed up.
  • Disappointing, needs fixing 1/5

    By MrDanysan
    This app rarely works well. Constant “error on our end.” Way over styled with animations that are unnecessary. Maybe work more on the apps stability and not the animations. Glad my school is switching to Canvas next semester.
  • A great app 5/5

    By nurapom
    The old backboard app stopped supporting iOS 11, so I decided to download a different kind. Love it! Very user friendly, easy to navigate and access courses.
  • Great App 5/5

    By _guyanesedoll
    So far so good. I haven’t had any complaints yet and I’ve had the app for about 3 months. It’s easy to navigate. I get my notifications when my grades are posted. I get to check the messages which are sent to me from my professors, as well as what assignments are due etc. I personally like the app. It definitely makes my life much easier since I use my phone for everything so it’s much easier to access. I do recommend. ☺️
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By JonnieB9
    Won’t connect with school blackboard
  • App does not show any courses 1/5

    By Ocgene
    I have enrolled in 3 courses, app does not show a single one of them.
  • New app new blackboard 4/5

    By Cutielove123
    I love the layout for Blackboard, a very good app, when you do not have access to a computer.
  • Blackboard 1/5

    By Jessaaaaaaaay
    I have tried downloading and redownloading this app multiple times; however, it still is not allowing me to login. Not with the hassle!
  • Miss the class 1/5

    By al.arabi
    After update IOS 11 this new app cannot open virtual class. Is miss a lot of things.
  • The design looks good but...... 2/5

    By EyeAmBella
    The design looks much better but there are several things missing. First the directions for the discussions are not present. I still had to go online to see what was asked if me. Secondly I wanted to post to a discussion and I kept receiving a message stating “thread was not created” with a big red X. Had to go online again to post. So really there is no point to the App as nothing works, it just looks better than the original App.
  • Severely lacking 1/5

    By BrianStoiber
    The old Blackboard app that was available on 32-bit iOS devices was wonderful. It didn’t have the polish that this one does but it was much more user friendly. You could access all data in classes, view all grades, upcoming and submitted. I wish they would just port the old app over and discontinue using this one.
  • Excellent App for using Blackboard 5/5

    By AU(Student)
    When comparing the website and the app, the app wins almost every time. There are many features within the app that make it easier to use. The app design is simple and very easy to navigate unlike the website, having tabs to organize classes and grades, as well as providing you with the same information on the website with just an easier aesthetic appeal. The app functions well allowing you to do almost everything without ever going to the website. With this app it becomes easy to find things rather than spending hours figuring out where certain files are located or how to submit things. I would advise all college students to get Blackboard the app especially if they are new to using it. With the app, using this software for grading etc. can be a smoother transition from the software you’re used to.
  • Old app was more navigable and organized 1/5

    By mamy1119
    This version is more difficult to navigate and less organized than the last version. There are constantly errors when trying to turn in work, especially with attachments. You can’t view the calendar anymore and it tells you assignments are overdue when the due date clearly shows that they are not due yet.
  • Works good enough for me 5/5

    By Mc Hammer!!!
    I use the app a lot between my 12.9” iPad Pro and my iPhone and at first the app wouldn’t scale to fit my iPad but after a recent updated it fills the screen nicely. No bugs or performance issues that I can see. It’s really nice to bring up notes or a ppt and then export it right into the app I want.
  • Garbage 1/5

    By Dookie splasher
    Im trynna see my grades why se would i want this trash
  • File upload doesn’t work 4/5

    By AnthonypenaNYC
    The app is very accessible , please update the file upload section . I’m unable to upload files to A discussion group
  • Fix 3/5

    By joharah02
    the app was great until notification stop working 😫 fix it
  • Crap App. Old one was better. 1/5

    By ShyOfLife
    Ok. So I’ve been taking college classes since high school. Thats over a decade and I’ve used all the blackboard apps. The last app was literally a mobile version of blackboard and worked perfectly. This app takes forever to log in and isn’t user friendly. On the old app I could go in, see what assignments were still needing to be done AND the due date. Not so much now. I really wish they would go back to the way the old app worked.
  • Decent app, but... 4/5

    By DearElla
    Blackboard Mobile is a good app, but I haven’t been able to use it since I updated my phone to iOS 11, and maybe this should be the next update?
  • Great app! 5/5

    By Jahroy
    It provides almost the same experience you would as if you were on a desktop computer.
  • NA 1/5

    By Mvrk96
    Stopped working
  • Needs updating! 1/5

    By ladyowlen
    Was working kind of when school started and after an update nothing works! All the links for my classes don’t work at all! Please fix!!!
  • This app is ok! 3/5

    By DianLC
    Allow to app to connect more than one school!
  • Works great! 5/5

    By NinjAmit
    Great app! Such a welcome upgrade from the awful mobile learn app. Easy to keep up with class updates and grades and has a simple yet effective interface. I'm impressed.
  • Great Update Giving Everything We Asked For!!! 5/5

    By ~CHR!S
    This app worked okay on a mobile phone for quickly and easily accessing school classes and information. However, it was not great for actually working from and completing school assignments. That has all changed now! The latest update has solved so many problems that we had and made the app a great tool to actually work and submit assignments from! I can use landscape mode from my iPad, type and submit assignments, use the discussion board, even watch videos...its great. Thanks for listening to our feedback and improving this app for all of us who use it on a daily basis. You just made my schooling and experience with Blackboard 100% better. I am thrilled!
