Not working. Not worth your time! 1/5
I’ve used the app a few times with success last term. Tried using it this week and last week and am getting login errors. The same login works when I use my computer so this app has issues. All the universities who want their students to use this app need to be made aware that this developer doesn’t care. Apple needs to pull this one off.
Worst App all time 1/5
Total garbage. Hate this app. Download it if you like having to choose your school, enter your email, enter your password, and then sign into it every time you open it. What a joke. Once my class is over I will enjoy deleting this from my phone and removing it from my life altogether.
Need mobile app for discussion boards 2/5
If you were to do one thing....make a mobile discussion app.
Make it easy to use. Make it fast. Make it now!
Okay app 2/5
I was really excited that I had an app to do school work on the go only to find out I can’t really do much through the app. I would love to be able to view my grades quick and easy through the app as well.
Useless app !!! Blackboard was better!!! 1/5
This app is a waste of time! Unable to see grades! Not much to see or do here...
What a disappointment 1/5
I did read the reviews prior to downloading but wanted to give it a try myself. If it did actually work as it says it should, it would have been a huge help to be able to access my coursework on the go. Unfortunately this is not the case and most everyone’s reviews were accurate. I selected my school, logged in with no issue. But that’s all I can do. It can’t access my coursework and says to try again later. However, it somehow lets me read my two discussion posts. I sent feedback but sadly I know that it won’t make a difference. This would’ve been a great tool to have though.
Doesn’t work 2/5
The app was okay at first, but hasn’t had an update in awhile. Now the app doesn’t work at all.
Works well 3/5
I have this app for Android and up to now it isn’t bad. However it doesn’t really do much.. it’s disappointing in the sense that I expect more out of the app. And when the app doesn’t have a certain feature it goes to the website from the app which is helpful but it makes the app pointless. Can’t complain other than less features than expected.
Too bad :( 1/5
I really liked this app, it was really great. For some people it still works and that is great for them. But after two semesters of it not finding my classes, there isn’t any point of keeping this app around. My school is moving away from the system soon anyway, probably for the best.
Won't let's me log back in 1/5
Ok app 2/5
I like the app however using a computer browser is a bit easier. The real problem is that it won't keep me logged in on my phone and I have to search my school every time I open the app and then go through additional steps to log in. Please fix soon.
Used to work. 1/5
Now it doesn’t
Missing Access to Features 3/5
The app works smoothly, but it is a “bare bones” app. Many features are simply links to the content on their website. It is not a true mobile version where students can work on assignments through their tablets or phones (a supposed advantage in using D2L). Additionally, there are features and content areas missing from the app that I can only access through a roundabout way once the app directs me to the website. These features include access to the Announcements (which seems like a significant oversight) and any discussions forums that are not incorporated into learning modules. I must access the website to see the content within these areas.
App badly needs modernized 2/5
This application is extremely bare-boned and not user friendly. I cannot fathom how universities so focused on Technology degrees, such as SNHU, even consider this platform a viable option for conducting class work. A prime example of this, is that you cannot use the Pulse Brightspace app in landscape mode when on iPad. This should have been implemented for such a widely used student hardware component. Not to mention the poor load times for certain resources. The only good thing about this app is that I can see my classwork and schedule in a consolidated location- I can do that online too (and without craning my neck sideways to see everything). Think I’ll just use a web shortcut until this app is brought “up to snuff”.
Need iPad Application 2/5
Please create a native iPad application!!
This app would be really awesome if it actually worked the way it’s supposed to. I’ve had two different phones and no matter what I do it does not push notifications when they first get sent. I miss a lot of information because this doesn’t work. I have played with the setting on my phone and still nothing. It’s practically useless if I don’t get notified with the stuff my professor sends out. Super frustrating
Time for an Update/iPad Version 3/5
By Ollie C.
Yikes. This app is certainly something. It’s in severe need of a facelift. It’s slow, cannot open most file types, and is quite ugly with its inconsistent color scheme. I'm here for the long haul because my university just switched over from BlackBoard, so I hope it improves soon. I would also love for this app to be universally compatible/optimized for iPad as that's where I do most of my work.
Great App, Better than the Website 5/5
In most cases I find it's much faster and more intuitive than D2L itself. I’ve used this app for an entire semester now. and the checklist automatically populates with due dates and assignments, which makes organization easy.
Doesn’t load 2/5
I open this app a couple of times and I feel like it is a good idea, but it doesn’t load my courses.
Fine, but... 2/5
The app works fine, but I need to log in every time I use it! Not a time saver. I’ll just stick to going through a web page to access D2L.
Has potential but doesn’t work 3/5
This app would be awesome if it still synced up with the alerts on D2L. It worked the first week I had it then stopped and I can’t fix it even after uninstalling and reinstalling. However, it still tells me when stuff is due
Simply does not work 1/5
Just does not work, I do not know why. Sign in never works always says there’s an error. If it is a problem with my school then I apologize for the negative reviews. Simply does not work for me though. If I could give it 0/5 stars I definitely would..
App works great for me 3/5
I'm seeing a lot of bad reviews, but I love the app, its integrated very well with D2L, and they are active updating and improving the app, I really cant ask too much. Maybe perhaps for other students it's the way their school is set up with D2L? Or maybe some people don't know how to use it right? Or some other technical issue.
One thing I would suggest for the developers would be for them to make an iPad version.
Update: at least they’re recently updating the app. However, nobody has responded to my feedback and from other reviews, many people seem to be experiencing the same thing. Please at least show some care for your consumers.
Always signs you out 1/5
I have to sign back in about 5 times a day for like the past 3 days. It’s beginning to get ridiculous...
Will not update 1/5
By Jai 20
This app started out working fine for me. After a few weeks, it stopped updating and giving me notifications. I think I’m going to uninstall the app.
I love this app. It's super easy and convenient but I wish I could read my emails for my courses on it.
UPDATE: my notifications do not even load anymore... please fix this!
Please update 3/5
Great app but notifications used to work but of late they are not coming through..
Sign-on crash 1/5
Having similar sign on problems "something went wrong" as described by other reviews.
Update 10/5/17. Still having problems. The only other apps on my phone that have as much trouble as this one are by developers from Moldova and Albania. I shouldn’t need the ultimate 4g hot spot or boosted WiFi signal to run the app...that’s the point of it being on the phone. It is supplementary to the MacBook website version. It has worked gloriously a couple times, and I can really see the benefit it “could” provide.
The courses are on now 5/5
Now that the courses are on the app is great. I like the notifications and the easy access. It hasn't crashed on me yet either.
Not reliable 1/5
I've been using this app for a year now and it is not consistent or reliable. I am finishing up my third week of the semester and it says it can't find my courses. I requested help from the support, but received no response.
If it works, this app is super helpful and a lifesaver. You might want to look at other options to keep your schedule straight, however!
Great if you like logging in everyday.
Brightspace doesn’t care that app doesn’t work 1/5
Update after 3 months: no one even responds to my request for help any longer. This app is broken for me and NO ONE CARES.
It worked for a semester and a half. Then it started not showing assignments. Then, when I tried to troubleshoot it buy signing out and back in, the app became unusable with the message "check back soon." If you like that constant message or one the says "loading courses" (but never does and goes right back to check back soon), then this app is for you! Don't bother trying to get support either. You will just get bounced around and told someone will email you in a couple days. Worst. App. Ever.
Inconsistent App and lack of quality support communication 3/5
For someone who does not openly nor quickly gives negative feedback, this app’s support group has never responded to my feedback— ever.
The app works and doesn’t work when you least expect then to. I have now deleted the app because it’s honestly unreliable. For example, I’m a quarter of the way in the semester and none of my assignments are showing, just the discussion board and other notifications.
I really want this app to work because it's so useful and a lot if improvements have been made that have been excellent!
As for the other reviews left by others, they are true. You may benefit more from the traditional method of writing things down and checking them frequently.
Horrendous app 1/5
By Tom from Vanderbilt
Two thirds or more of all content associated with this app does not work. How could a company possibly think this was good enough to release?
Works fine for me! 5/5
By Count Jarim the 3
It took me a few tries but I got it to work, and it is super useful!!
Does not work!!!!
Runs smooth and productively and maintains a stunning interface.
University of Akron 2/5
By Mcflownie Mcfloonie Loo
I really like the idea of this app and I think it could be really useful, however, I cannot log on. I just keeps saying something went wrong and for security reasons I need to log in again but doesn't let me finish typing my log in information in. I will gladly write a new review if/when I am able to actually use this app....
Impossible to Login 1/5
You are not able to log into this app. They always "deduce" that something went "wrong". Fix this app please.
Could be more useful 2/5
I'm only able to see my syllabus and power points for all my classes- not any of the assignments, discussions, etc. It would be nice if you could see all the content from classes.
Doesn't work 1/5
I have tried multiple times on both my phone and on my iPad to log on to the app but it never works. I get an error message and it redirects me to sign in again.
This app doesn't work for the University of Akron. 1/5
I cannot log into the app with my information. Same problem everyone else has. Fix the app. It has great potential.
Can't sign in 1/5
Removing from phone. Hoping I didn't just give my university login to a disreputable source : /
"not compatible" 1/5
By Perf, okay?
a little disappointed because when i try and login with my school email, it says it's not compatible :-/
Cannot Sign In 1/5
I have never been able to sign into this app. It always tells me something is wrong. There have been times when I am still typing in my login information and it still tells me that I cannot sign in. Deleted the app and re-downloaded it, to see if that would solve the issue. It did not. This app does not work.
Can't login 1/5
Will not let me login. Says something went wrong. Please fix.
University of Akron student 1/5
I've read other reviews, and it seems I'm having the same problem, so it's not just me. I've been able to sign-on once, but since then the app keeps saying "Something went wrong, please sign-in again". And then I'll reattempt it, and it won't work.
Keeps saying to sign in! 1/5
It hasn't let me on once, keeps saying for security reasons can you sign in again. Very frustrating
Don't understand all the bad reviews 5/5
By Yeti kid
This app works great and sign in is easy and never messed up. All the reviews saying they have an error probably is on the collage end not d2l's. Works just like the website
won't work 1/5
I've seen other reviews and it seems we are having similar problems. When I try to sign it it says there's been an error and then asks me to again, then the app crashes. I'd love to use this to help with my classes please fix this issue!
