It is no longer functional. The lectures don’t work and the tech support can’t explain why this is the only dysfunctional app I have on my iPhone X or iPad Pro. It didn’t work on my 7+ either but all my other app work like a charm.
By UT B. Arch Student
mostly just use the app to check canvas messages.
Stupid app 1/5
Most of the apps just doesn’t load. It doesn’t matter what device or how could the internet connection is. Just use the desktop site if you NEED too.
Big improvement but.. 3/5
There has been a big improvement since the last time I reviewed the app. One thing I would like to be brought back - different color dots on the calendar corresponding to the colors of classes that way you know what class is due and when
I think that the app would be much better if everything was like how it is on the website
Rather use the website on mobile than this 2/5
By Kat Man
It seems like nearly every update requires you to log in again. This also happens frequently when tapping a message notification. Notifications rarely even take you to where they’re supposed to, often times just dumping you on the main screen. The only thing I’ve found this app good for is taking a quick look at grades. Anything else is a pain.
App doesn’t work 1/5
My canvas was working fine now it won’t even open . It won’t allow me to do anything, it’ll pop up and close back out the app. When it was working It was the best app
It doesn’t support latest iOS Firmware 1/5
It’s not showing notifications even if it’s on,
I can’t use this application on my iPhone X.
Won't stop crashing 1/5
Please fix. I have an iPhone 6s, with iOS 10. Haven't been able to use the app for weeks. Keeps crashing every time I try to open it. Bug fix update 11/17 did NOT fix it. This is ridiculous. There have been bug updates for weeks. I still can't open the app
Missing important features 3/5
The app is missing an important feature that the web portal has. In the web portal you can see how your grades compare to the rest of the class in terms of min, max, average grade. The app should add this feature. Also it should show the median too, mean isn’t always as helpful as median.
App crashes 1/5
The app use to be really good until I updated and now I can't even get into the app. I click on the app and it slowly loads, but even before getting in the app crashes.
Great app! Really Useful! 4/5
This app has made it really useful to access my Canvas pages when I am on the go! It’s a really clean design. My only issue is that it is really slow at loading files and when attempting to view discussions. Often times it gets confused when I attempt to quickly switch between classes and the app freezes and I am forced to close it and reopen it.
New Update causes crashes 1/5
Newest update makes the app crash on startup, can't do anything in it.
except local file management it's good support 3/5
It is really useful app. You can even upload the assignment like videos, audios, docs.
However, it lacks the local file and data cache management. Can you imagine it takes up to 800MB of the storage. You have to delete and reinstall. Moreover it seems each time you click the file, it will download the file. It is duplicate process.
App hangs on ios 11.1.1 3/5
It hangs everytime you check the grades or refresh it to open the course. Please fix it.
It logs me out a lot 2/5
This app has the tendency to log me out of my school and not load to let me get back into my school’s canvas. It is a problem because I use this to log on all of my homework assignments
iPad Pro12.9 runs super slow 1/5
By Bo Xiao
After this update, the app always fails to respond, it is very frustrating experience, just like running a windows 98 application on a modern device. I know a considerate number of school are using canvas, your website is good, why don’t you hire some professional team to stabilize your iOS app?
User friendly 5/5
Great app. Needed it for school and love it on the go.
Many minor flaws 1/5
I can’t expand my grades on the mobile app and there are frequent crashes when I spend more than 10 minutes on it.
WE WANT SCORING DETAILS ON THE APP 4/5
Please developers, add a way to see the scoring details (mean, high, low) before I graduate next year😭
The app was mandatory for me to get when i started my new school, but i recommend it to anyone who has any amount of online homework (or not online homework!). It is super helpful at reminders and it works well 99% of the time. The only thing is, if you don’t have internet and you don’t download the assignment or copy and paste it into a google doc, you cannot access the assignment or assignment description. But other than that, this app is totally awesome and I recommend this to anyone who could get a collaboration with teachers. Great app!
Every time i use it, i realize it is insufficient and have to go to the pc to use the canvas full web page which takes me back to poor web design from 2007
WHY WONT IT OPEN?!? 2/5
i absolutely loved this app at first. could see immediately when grades are posted & if you get a message, etc. but like after having this downloaded for like 2 months, i get no notifications. i can't open the app at all. it'll come up the opening page then automatically close out of it & its real freaking irritating. & yes i've updated it.
By Andrew Cedar
App is still force shutting down. 1/5
Usually love the app, but now it won’t open. I’ll try to open the app and the logo screen will come up and then force shut after that, even with the “bug fix” update.
By Dancer 3
Yay! I would like it to have more features, similar to the actual site itself.
I would also like students not to accidentally text the whole class rather than just the teacher.
I find it annoying when I want to archive a message and cannot.
Hey it's pretty good 5/5
10/10 better than the website
I have it for school and just when I need the calendar the most it glitched and said I had school and tests on the weekends. Now every event is the same color and it isn’t refreshing. Great.
Love canvas platform
Use it a lot for school but.... 4/5
I use this app a lot for school, but it has a few bugs in it. The notifications are sometimes buggy and they will show up sometimes saying that an assignment has been graded, when actually it has either been created or nothing has happened. Also sometimes the app will act normally, and then kick me out of the app. The bottom line is is that the app is absolutely great for doing assignments and homework, but sometimes it either is buggy, or it just doesn’t like you.... XD
No notification with iphone x 1/5
What happened? No notifications available when there are activities from my classes....
Oh Canvas... 3/5
Overall, this is a pretty good computer website. But the phone app has tons of glitches. Fix these and it'll be a 5 star in no time.
Won’t work 3/5
I loved this app when it was working. I have tried just about everything to try and get it to load on my iPhone with no success. It worked until I did an update then it began to crash. I am out of ideas on how to get it to work again. I have since done another update and tried everything again still with no success.
Dear Canvas People,
I love canvas so much it is very helpful to me when I need to look at my grades really fast and very useful in class.
Canvas review 5/5
Love it helps me find what homework I have everyday even if I don’t copy it of the homework board
Restarting App 4/5
By Super Sunny Sunshine
app works fantastic! except ever since I updated to iOS 11.1, every time I check my grades through the app, I have to close the app and restart it or else it won’t do anything else 😕
Please go back to putting the colors of the classes on the calendar instead of just one. Also crashes a lot.
Horrible for IPad Pro 1/5
App is horrible with any I product.
Discussions post 3/5
I love this app, but most times I can’t read the discussion post it has issues opening them and I can never open my textbooks!
Great app for organizing 5/5
App is very user friendly
Hate it 1/5
Love it 4/5
It is great!!!
Edit: on the new update, the icon is broken.
Has problems 2/5
By King Naldo
Some assignments say that there is no due date, making me believe I can still turn them in, when they are really closed. Make sure you guys use canvas on the web, this app screws you over on due dates.
New review is trash 1/5
Won’t allow me to open any files, app constantly crashes can’t even use the new version, please fix now
Terrible file retrieval 1/5
I need to retrieve files from the app to complete and turn in as assignments. However, whenever I try to take a file from Canvas, it takes me to its website through the app, where I have to open the same website and download the file from Safari. Please fix!
Wish there was split screen support for the iPad! 4/5
The app is great besides not having split screen support for the iPad!
Better before, but still difficult 2/5
The latest update makes me log in to get materials to download, which wasn't the case before.
It is still extremely difficult to find where professors place things within the app versus the website. There should be a way to make each work the same when things are uploaded.
This website and app actually make finding material more difficult to find than it should be.
Pretty good. 4/5
I like this app pretty well. It's better than any online grading system I've ever seen. The app interface is very nice and easy to work with. The only thing is that I'd like to be able to do what-if grades on the app like you can with the website. It's highly annoying that you can't.
This new update is horrible! I can’t open my PDF’s in Canvas anymore and had to buy a PDF writer just so I can do my school work! And if I want to open up the file, I have to download it open it up then open it in safari and then open it in adobe just so I can edit a document. It’s very slow and glitchy and turns off when I try to turn in my assignments. Please bring back the version of canvas before this! It was so much better!
