Blackboard app reviews

  • Not reliable! 1/5

    By Tdhjkdf
    It constantly logs you out and I am beyond frustrated! I keep putting in the correct email/password and it keeps saying it's incorrect....even contacted support and all they do is send you an automated email that doesn't help.
  • No notifications 4/5

    By Kianna Love
    Notifications do not work at all
  • Works well 4/5

    By Winning117
    The app works well and is useful but the one problem I have found is the inability to view professor's comments.
  • Flawless 5/5

    By Salmann3
    Great on iPhone 6s
  • Can it PLEASE be correctly formatted for iPads? 1/5

    By herroseattle
    Most of my coursework is done on my iPad, and I'm still using the old Bb Mobile Learn iPad app because it's formatted correctly. I'd love to use the new, updated Blackboard app, but I don't want a simply magnified version of an iPhone app! Please make it available for iPads as well!
  • Laughable app design 2/5

    By jlag191
    This might be the biggest case of an app focusing more on style than function I’ve ever seen. Not only is the layout sort of confusing, but I feel like you could take a screenshot of any screen on this app and you could find at least a couple things that don’t follow the iOS Human Interface Guidelines. Every animation is too long and too bubbly, so every time my finger hits the screen I get a big sense of unprofessionalism from the UI designer(s). But hey, the app at least works like it’s supposed to. I can check grades, at least.
  • Buggy and unfinished 2/5

    By Glitchblade
    As others have said, this app is not good. Text within assignments is crammed and illegible. Clicking on some links requires you to re-log into Blackboard on the web, which entirely defeats the point of the app. Some pages do not load while others take forever. This is not a finished app by any means.
  • Confused 1/5

    By Wesasouras10084
    My school doesn't show up
  • Doesn’t work 2/5

    By Eyzofgreen
    Updated my iPhone so had to go to updated blackboard. It only works once for me then I get error messages and cannot access anything have to delete it and then I can use it once and then error message all over again. Wish someone from Blackboard would contact me. Loved the old app and used it multiple times a day. This one is a nightmare.
  • Nonfunctioning iPhone-only app replaces functioning iPad app 1/5

    By aedifica
    My previous Blackboard app stopped working sometime in the last week, without warning. The old app did give me a link to download the new one... but the new one is several huge steps backward. Old app: iPad-friendly, supported landscape view. New app: iPhone only, so when I use it on my iPad in landscape mode in order to use my keyboard folio, the app is sideways. Old app: logged me in without difficulty (until it was discontinued this week). New app: has been unable to log me in so far, whether on wifi or cellular data. I'm extremely disappointed with Blackboard that they have removed functionality like this.
  • Unhappy With Blackboard 1/5

    By GringitoDeAmerrrrrrica
    The app is okay. They made an attempt to make the animations and transitions candy for the eyes. Most features are there; however, there is one glaring feature missing, the announcements. I’m not sure if this is because I just started using the app and there is nothing in the activity stream, but it seems like a major oversight that students can’t access past announcements. Very odd. My major upset with this app is its very existence. Despite my school paying for old Blackboard Learn app I was forced to purchase the Blackboard Learn app anyways. Now, with iOS 11 dropping support for 32-bit applications, the old Blackboard Learn app that I had to purchase is unusable. Blackboard has indicated that they are now forcing users to use this app, as they have deprecated the old app. I’m upset with Blackboard and this app to say the least. What a waste.
  • Works pretty goo 5/5

    By FireBlitz
    So far so good. There’s a recently viewed section and it help swap back and forth.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Bre✨
    App is finally working perfectly again, I’m glad the program could be easily resolved within a few days. This app was working perfectly fine when I first downloaded it however a week or so later I went to open the app and I was no longer logged in. After multiple attempts to log back in and deleting & downloading again the app still doesn't allow me me to log in. The same message pops up after a minute and a half saying there's a problem our side so I should try again later. This experience is rather disappointing because I was beginning to really enjoy the app and the easy accessibility.
  • No notifications 1/5

    By Xisyjlsiugsbjs
    Never receive notifications, although the setting is on. That's the reason I have the app so I can get notifications on announcements. Deleting because it just won't work
  • Needs iPad Version 4/5

    By Pikolata2
    This app needs an iPad version.
  • Dysfunctional at best 1/5

    By SANS_15
    The app won't allow me to view my grades, classes, or announcements.
  • Much better. 3/5

    By Sometimes I don't understand
    This is better than the old app by far. My only complaint is that using it is in general confusing. I can't find certain documents and some folders take forever to load. Also, the calendar isn't working properly the way it works on a computer. However, as I said before, the improvements are great.
  • iOS 10 and earlier was better 3/5

    By adefeo4519
    The old app was so much easier to use. This new app also uses way too much animation on an app that has no need to be overly animated.
  • iPad Compatibility 2/5

    By G r l
    I like the fresh new design of the app and the functionality it adds. There is one major problem though; this app is not properly formatted for the iPad. I can open it on my iPad, but it’s obvious that this app was designed for phones. This is a real shame because the old app had a proper iPad version n and this one does not. Please create an iPad version of this app.
  • Please Make An iPad App 1/5

    By Greeny0711
    Phones aren’t allowed in school whatsoever and we can only use iPads. Using the iPhone version on a 10.5 inch iPad is SO bad that I have to use the browser website. And that’s broken TOO. So... Bring back the old BlackBoard? I mean it takes like 5 minutes of class time just so everyone can pull something up.
  • No iPad support 1/5

    By Chris33473
    The app has no iPad support. I take all of my notes and assignments on iPad...
  • iPad support please! 3/5

    By j8g3erut439ygrhoiegd
    SInce the old blackboard app is now obsolete with IOS11, I would love for this app to be more iPad friendly.
  • PLEASE 2/5

    By Ikeydlc
    The app is funky when using as in it is fun but its is not intuitive. They also need to come out with an iPad version PLEASE, you have not idea how hard it is to try to juggle a layout that doesn’t like to go into landscape and freezes out with the new iOS
  • Please make it to work in landscape mode. 2/5

    By NEWtoUD
    Now that the older version will not update or even open anymore with the new apple software update please make this as user friendly as the old one. The PowerPoints do not download to my good notes as cleanly as the old one did and it lacks the use of landscape mode to view the app which is annoying.
  • Make it for the iPad as well! 3/5

    By Braddshaw
    The app works great and looks great. From my phone. Being an online student I used my iPad for a lot of school related things and would love to actually be able to use this on my iPad as well! Please make it work for the iPad, it would make it a lot more convenient.
  • Disgusting 1/5

    By Slbb2007
    You take an app that was working fine like Mobile learn and you discontinue it right before school starts and you give us this crap that won't even let me log in anymore. You idiots should be ashamed of yourselves.
  • Does not have my university of texas at arlington 1/5

    By Nishil Sheth
    Please add university of texas at arlington to BB app
  • Nope!! 1/5

    By KV201312
    This app is terrible compared to mobile learn. And that app was a horrible app. Please fix the discussion board section. If I wanted to see it from the website view I would login from a browser. Apps are supposed to make things either navigate and view on smart phones and tablets and this app does neither!!!
  • Not working!! 1/5

    By Italia16x
    This app is junk!! I downloaded this version after I updated my phone to the new iOS and the old app wouldn’t support the new iOS. This app keeps telling me my username or password are not correct but I know they are correct because I can log into my computer!! I’ve even deleted this app and redownloaded it and ive also changed my password to see if that helped and it hasn’t. Please fix this issue!! It is extremely inconvenient! Thanks.
  • seriously !!!! 1/5

    By R10sh
    the old design is way better.. + THE FILES DOESN'T OPEN + NOTIFICATION DOESN'T WORK!!!!!!!!!!
  • Garbage 1/5

    By Afort518
    Had to update to this app which doesnt support ipads. This company is unbelievable. Paid 5dollars for old app that was last updated in 2011and now you cant even make an app that supports ipad?
  • Missing iPad Version 2/5

    By Xillio
    Why this app is not universal?
  • Not working 3/5

    By LAMEES1996
    I can't open pdf and word files "downloading failed "please fix it asap !!!!
  • Why can I not login? 3/5

    By _ShadowX_
    It is refusing to allow to me login. It has been working great, up until right now!
  • Crashes when I need my grades 2/5

    By JoeyJoeBoi
    Crashes whenever I try to view my grades. Works decently for the majority, won't allow me access to certain assignments (inconsistent cause sometimes it does allow access), and crashes in grades.
  • iPhone only app!!! 1/5

    By @jchowabc
    Useless app to me because at least the old app had an iPad version. Let me know when there's an iPad version. Webpages fit better than this app. Edit: I will review the universal app if it gets released.
  • Unbelievably bad 1/5

    By Rater12345678987654321
    I don't understand why blackboard cannot create a properly functioning app with all the money they have. There isnt even an iPad version available. It's absolutely ridiculous and i cant comprehend why they haven't fixed all these issues. It's just as bad as the old app, but it just looks better.
  • Working Great So Far 4/5

    By ((Zach))
    Everything is working great so far! I can view grades, classes, upcoming assignments, etc. etc. The app did crash once when I clicked on "Programs" however, so I give it a 4/5. Will update if I run into more problems.
  • App is great!... until you can't get to anything 2/5

    By hazeleyes1011
    A majority of the time, when I try to go to the discussion board or even my grades, this app won't log me in and I am not able to get to anything. Sometimes it works and it's great, but most of the time I am unable to use it.
  • Desperately needs to support iPad resolutions! 3/5

    By Wrbluepearl
    Once I got past the login headache (use just the username, not the full email address) this app works pretty well. Definitely more reliable than the old mobile learn app, and much snappier performance as well. Support for iPad screens will make this a five star app!
  • Multiple accounts login at one time 4/5

    By PrashantPG
    Awesome app. I would love to have my all school accounts connected at one time so that I don't have to log out and log in again and again. Please fix this. Thanks
  • Works great, just need to fix connection problem. 3/5

    By matt_man757
    I like the setup of this app and the features it offers, especially when it sends me notifications of when grades are posted. The only glaring problem with this app that needs fixing is the issue with connecting on wifi. When I first open the app, it gives me an error saying that I am unable to connect. The only way I know how to fix this is to turn off wifi and try to connect on LTE, and if that doesn't work then turn wifi back on and usually it will connect and stay connected. Fix this issue and the app is 5 stars.
  • Who's in charge of the app design? 1/5

    By vanipop
    Can't use any of the course link properly. Why did y'all decided to create a web-based app version instead? It's freaking hard to navigate through the links and can't even zoom out to maximize the usage. The courses aren't even in the frequency order. I don't want to scroll through all of my previous courses to get to my current courses. Don't let me start on the "grade" tab as well. I want to old BB app back or at least make it more user friendly or hire a new app designer.
  • Update 1/5

    By Wndifnfm
    I love this app, but it really needs to be looked at. I cant create an attempt to turn in my work on here. I honestly think ill be better sticking to my laptop unless you guys fix this.
  • Good update 3/5

    By Nick22297
    Good step-up from the old app. Should have push notifications when class announcements are posted by instructors
  • Nice 5/5

    By Ladybrooks2017
    So far I am enjoying the app. I am using an iPhone 5 to view it and no current problems
  • Discussion Board Not Working 2/5

    By Wyldflower79
    Cannot access discussion board from app. Help?!
  • Not very accountable 1/5

    By flcc105
    I have deleted and reinstalled this app 3 times. It works for a day then I can't access anything after a day. Everything is denied
  • Horror 1/5

    By rebeccafedup
    Update: redownloaded I can find my school now but still won't let me sign in with my username or password: error says oops something wrong on our end please try again later i downloaded the app gave me a hard time logging in wouldn't recognize my log in and password. Finally got in, accidentally hit help button and from there would not go back stayed on a black screen. Uninstalled the app and re downloaded, now it won't recognize my schools name at all I've uninstalled reset my phone downloaded again about 10 times and still would not find my school. This is ridiculous! You've changed the icon but not the Quality of the app. Even the website is slow.
  • Worked just great 5/5

    By Jesse.F
    Does exactly what I need it to and logging in was super easy. Interface is smooth, although the "pulling down" to back up out of folders and such wasn't intuitive.
