Nice idea but terrible inconsistencies/awkward functionality 1/5
The idea of having instant access to our children's grades is great but it needs to be consistent (currently there are no grades previous to last week). Also the functionality is awkward at best.
The app works terribly, but is worse when it won't work at all 1/5
This app is really convenient if you only care about the grades you have in one six weeks at a time. The server crashes are impossible to deal with, and the way the interface is organized is ridiculous. I wish I could rate this app lower for the unnecessary struggle it has caused me and everybody else.
SUPER DUMB!!! 1/5
I forgot my password and I tried it a few times in different ways that I thought was my password but then when I looked in my planner and got the passcode it said that my account acceded the limit of tried when I had the right password
The most honest review on this app 1/5
I just really freaking hate school: Something needs to be done because some teenagers would rather die than go to school. People actually dread waking up in the morning just because they don't want to go to school. I'm not saying it's like this for everybody, but the system is seriously messed up. Personally after I learn something and take the test over it I just forget it. I go to school to get good grades and I do, but I literally don't remember anything from ANY of my classes last semester except for the ones that I enjoyed being in. To me those classes are photography, choir, and biology. I absolutely have no interest in any type of science, in fact I have always hated that class, but my teacher actually made me want to learn. She was energetic and made learning something I wanted to do. As fast as photography and choir I liked them because I am interested in those two things and find them fun to do, but also because my teachers were amazing. They pushed the whole class as a group to be the best we could be. They didn't slap work in our face to do while they "monitored" the class. They were with us to help us learn and get better. They encouraged us to ask questions, because if we had a question there was at least 1 other person in the room that had that same question. I'm not saying that school is a bad thing I just think that people need to get off their butts and review the whole situation. I don't understand how people don't understand the stress that teenagers go through. Yeah it's a tough time trying to figure out who you are, I know. But that's not the stressful part of being a teen. In my opinion school is the #1 most stressful thing I have gone through and I am positive it is not healthy to be going through as much stress as I am. But you know what, I have to deal with it because there is nobody even considering the situation. I can go to a counselor to report a teacher, heck I can go to the principal to report a teacher and I HAVE. But is anything going to be done? No. Why not? "Since that teacher has so many students it's hard for them to give 100% effort to all of their students equally." If that's your answer then maybe you should train that adult human to deal with situations like these. Teachers are supposed support and advocate for their EVERY SINGLE ONE of their students, and if they can't do that because they don't particularly "like" one of them then maybe they shouldn't even be a teacher.
Not bad I just don't like school 1/5

I don't like school
Useless piece of crap 1/5
Skyward, while useful before is now completely useless, I have attempted to log into my account multiple times and it constantly gives me an error. I don't know why but this stupid app is nothing but a pain.
FIX IT NOW 1/5
I can't check any of my grades anymore. Skyward says "nothing to show" so I can't check my exam grades or my semester grades!!!!!! 😡😡😡. Fix it now
I failed English smh I hate this app it always brings pain and suffering and it gets me in trouble smh
By BMAN WELLS
Missing so many features compared to the website that it's useless.
1 Star 1/5
And btw if you haven't noticed yet this app has more 1 star reviews than anything
Very Poor Design 1/5
The app is slow. The design is even worse! I would like to see all of my grades, missing assignments, and tests all at the same time. The first thing I would want to see is everything. Instead, I have to spend forever trying to look for everything! I hate searching for my grades. Please give the app a cleaner look! 😩
The app has been broken for a year. 😑😑😑 1/5
The Touch ID on it never works for me, and it won't allow me to put in my passcode. Honestly, I think it's a broken mechanic in the app, and it's really annoying. 👎 also, I can't turn the Touch ID off in the settings. 😑 I have to delete and redownload the app every time I need to use it because I can't log in otherwise. It's been like a year since I've been having problems with this and apparently no one cares to fix it. I wouldn't use it if I didn't have to for school.
Look at all the 1-star reviews, 'nuf said 1/5
Can't enter attendance and the UI is from 1990. Terrible.
Wow. 😡 3/5
Ok so I'm trying to look at my grades and I can't even get into my account! I may have changed my password, but it locked me out!!!!!! Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!! Please lemme back in the app so I can see my bad grades! Pleeeeeeeeeeeaase! Also, Skyward looks weird. The color scene is sooooo blegh! Chaaaaange! Ahhhhhh!
Complete Garbage! 1/5
I can't even tell which grade I have anymore because on the app it says I have a C but then I checked the website and I had A B. The website is very difficult to use and it bugs out every time I use it. I can't even see my missing assignments! You might as well take down this app because it is useless, it can't update anything and it only shows test scores. This is bizarre! You have to pick up your game, skyward is one of the most widely used grade book! I'm really hoping for a change but I doubt that will ever happen.
It does what it needs to do but it is in no way sleek and easy to use. This app could use a lot of visual improvements.
2016 not 2006 1/5
By Tyson Allgaier
Please update the app and make it work, there is always a pop up saying there's a mobile access issue. The app doesn't look good either. Please just make an update to the app to make it look good and function well
This is a completely pointless app, as in its trash and it doesn't show my true grades. I know I'm better than everyone and smarter. Gimme all A's and I will give this garbage app 3 stars at the very least.
Notification Option 2/5
Please add in a notification option for when teachers put in grades. That'd be great!
By Viv cookie nguyen
I think it's okay it's works fine but ,for some reason I just got kicked out and I for some reason can't get back on. I would say half of it's good while the other problems just stink.
This app and this platform is hard to use and disappointing as a teacher, a student and a parent.
Doesn't show missing assignments!! 2/5
Either I'm blind or it's not on my phone or something but I have to go to google just to see my missing assignments. I got this mobile skyward so I can checked my grades and other stuff faster than you could on the web. I don't like the website one on the phone because the picture is too small and usually doesn't even work and this app works fine except I can't seem to find my missing assignments. I know I have a few so there's no reason it's not on there. If there could be an update strictly for this, not the design, it would be a great help and would be very useful. I would give a way better review if it just had your missing assignments listed.
By cool -dog
this app is very helpful but it would be way more handy if it told me my current GPA. MAKE A CHANGE
Thought it was good but I guess not!
Really buggy! 1/5
This app is so buggy it can be hard to use. So frustrating. 1/10
Animations are cool... 1/5
I can't login to my account
Trash 🚮🚮 1/5
By Ghetto Ninja.:)
Somehow this app got worse with the update. It's hard to use and overall terrible. Go back to the old skyward please.
I know that very few people actually like this app, but I differ from the majority. Whenever I want to look at my daughter's grades, I just go onto the app, sign in, and they're right there. Right when you log into the app, you are able to see their grades, and I think that that is most important. It is also very easy to access the grades that my daughter got on her specific class assignments. I personally like the new update! I use Skyward all the time!
I don't know why everyone hates this app 5/5
There is nothing wrong with it. It is simple to open and check my grades. It makes my life so much easier. I don't know why everyone is complaining about the new layout...
By Ocean man take me by the hand
I can't look up past grades. I click "show past grades" but nothing happens.
Good with grades
Wish we could go back to the old app. 1/5
Really poor redesign of the app. You cannot look at grades in student management and it is not user friendly. You cannot set preferences and it constantly reverts back to family access when all I want is student management. It takes weeks to get any answer from skyward and all that you get told is no it can't be done.
I don't why our school switched to this site and left PowerSchool. The app doesn't tell you your GPA, it doesn't tell you if your grade went higher or lower and It doesn't tell you the percent of your grade just the grade point I do not recommend
Not good whatsoever. 1/5
Hey Skyward, have you ever heard of the phrase "if it isn't broken then don't fix it"? With every update this app has gotten worse and worse. Users have to learn how to use the app again with every new update because it is so butchered every single time! A few terms that describe this app are as follows: clunky, slow, non-innovative, and broken. Sometimes it feels like the developers are trying to push away students from using this app, and if that statement is true, they have done a great job doing so. To be completely honest, I'm glad this is the last year I have to use it.
By Jenna Disser
Before the update it looked clean and simple. Everything was easy to access. Now, it's ugly and it made everything 1000x more difficult to navigate. Deleted.
It's Works Fine 5/5
By Chloe mistress of Thunder
Literally the whole point of this app is to check your grades. Not by how it looks, if your reading this don't listen to all the kids here. Their writing bad reviews because they hate school and or their grades. But this works perfectly fine, it shows your grades. It does everything it's supposed to be. Don't listen to all these kids.
By Basketball beast11
You guys should make a wager for iPhones like on the lock screen. Please share so they can say.
Less than useless 1/5
My school district changed from GradePro this school year. Skyward mobile app fails in the following ways: Only shows current marking period; Doesn't sent notice as new grades are input; Doesn't track GPA; Doesn't calculate grade across all marking periods; Display is bland and unwieldy; and so much more.
Worst thing ever created next to the Clintons
bring back the old skyward 1/5
i don't know how to check my grades anymore. it used to be great but it's so cunfusing now. bring back the old skyward
Great App 5/5
I can hide my grades from my parents
Not friendly 1/5
This app is not user friendly at all!! I end up have to go to the desktop. Then I have to set up a new password every once in awhile!!! It's so frustrating!!! Pls fix this!!!!
By Lizered lover
I have a idea plz make it so the teachers can put a picture of the assignment next to the grade thanks. 🙂
Can we get an Apple Watch app? 3/5
I'd love to be able to punch in and out from my wrist.
Don't get it 1/5
By Read !!
This update is terrible I can't even look at my grades or even get into my account. The only way I can is if I go onto my desktop. I don't recommend this
Shouldn't even exist 1/5
This bull crap was only designed to get kids in trouble. If you're failing, then your teacher will let you know or you can just ask them. Skyward is Skynet
I hate it!!! 1/5
Ok I can't even log in to my acc on the app or the website. Like what is this? My password is invalid but I got it from my school they said it should work then why doesn't it and when u r logged in the app is so hard to opperate
