Using this app is beyond frustrating... 1/5
Honestly, blackboard is a very important app for pretty much every college student in America.
This app randomly logs me out and I have to log back in, every now and then. There should be a system designed for students to stay logged in; without the hassle of logging back in every single moment. Sometimes the login doesn’t even work and when it logs out, it’s impossible to log back in without refreshing the app. Please make some positive adjustments to it. It would certainly make lives easier.
Limits at Best 2/5
Limited at best. Please don’t think this will replace blackboard on the computer. Regularly sends me alerts that work is late or overdue when it’s already been submitted. I don’t really like it. I only use it in when I have to, or to check grades.
The app is just awful 1/5
1 - It doesn't keep you logged in. You have to log in EVERY SINGLE time you use it and it takes forever.
2 - After 10 seconds you log in, it asks you to log in again and again and it never works. A new window will keep showing up until you log in again, but since it doesn't work, it will keep showing forever.
3 - The app does not have the same features as the web version. In other words, you miss a lot using the app, which can compromise your performance at school.
Good to use when you’re not near a computer and can see your grades.
Change Icon 1/5
By Ammar Joudeh
Please change horrible icon!!!!
By Shortayy! ;D
Everything works great the only thing is I wish we could message through the app. It would be sooo much easier!!
App vs desktop 4/5
Oddly better than their desktop application
Blackboard Review 4/5
By Lissa 😊📱
Overall the app seems to be quite good. However, I chose to give it only 4 stars because it lacks a built in GPA calculator. This functionality would be great for us students who want know our GPA for the semester in real time. It would be great to see this function update every time professors add grades. Such as assignments, tests, quizzes, projects or extra credit. This is only a suggestion but but it’s considered!
Great Appo 5/5
It’s so convenient!
Help full 5/5
Fast of this app is awesome it helps to check your grades very fast. Another thing you can get quick updates whenever a Proffessor sends a message about homework. Another thing which I found fascinating is that it can even help you to choose your internships and plan early which is great. 😊
App closing when opening discussion boards 1/5
The app has begun closing out when clicking on the discussion boards for each class. Please send an update to fix.
I would expect an app from blackboard to be more efficient. Disappointed.
Just One Thing 4/5
Every time when you open, you have to login again and again. It makes me so bother. But, Everything is really good!! Pretty color and convenient.
Great App! 5/5
By MIchelle Gerace
This makes school so much easier when professors are so dependent on Blackboard.
Very limited 2/5
Incredibly limited a filled with glitches.
Fix it! 3/5
It’s just slow, stupid, extremely counter intuitive, oh and it’s broken, it shows a blank and black screen whenever a notification is opened.
Please have a remember me feature 1/5
By maria kristine
I have to log in every time i open it. Sometimes even when I'm still logged in, it asks me to log in again for it to work properly, so i have to log out, then log in again
Collaboration future it’s need to enhance 4/5
The application it’s useful; I want you to enhance the collaboration, it have some lag , I want it clear as possible.
leader in accessibility? 1/5
blackboard kit claims to be a leader in digital accessibility, however during a one year period of masters study, I've only had unfettered access to the discussion forms for a total of four weeks. If blackboard is going to claim to be a leader in accessibility, they should put more effort towards the user experience of the blind. Thank you!
Update Created More Problems 2/5
This app was working wonderfully until a couple weeks go. Now every time I open the app and try to open a course, it comes up with the error “there seems to be an issue on our side, please try again later”. I tried logging out and logging back in, and now it won’t even let me log in! Please fix this, it could be five stars.
Ap logs out every couple days 2/5
Last semester I had no issues the ap worked perfect. for some reason, now the ap is constantly logging me out and I have to resign in every couple days. Not convenient at all
Unable to load 2/5
Blackboard doesnt load the notes anymore on course contents :(
I have an Iphone Eight and I can’t do much with this app on my phone. My web browser’s work better and it’s pointless.
Have to keep logging in 1/5
It’s very inconvenient to keep having to log in every time I open the app. It wasn’t always like that.
Been using it for a few months now 4/5
Everything seems to work good, but some course information is missing in the in app. Like, descriptions of tests, quizzes, labs, etc. They are just never there. Aside from that, the app never crashes, everything loads decently fast, and it’s very easy to navigate.
Bad update 1/5
I can’t log in because of the new update! Please fix this!
App never keeps up with the classes you are actually in!
Voice Over 2/5
With latest update voice over no longer reads discussion board posts and replies. This functionality is essential for blind users ... please fix.
Update is horrible 1/5
I haven’t been able to log in to the app for the past 4 days. My password and username names works on the computer but not the app. This needs to get fixed ASAP. This has been a huge inconvenience!!!
Black board 5/5
This app is very great. It helps me stay on top of my work and get good grades. Thank you black board
Trouble logging in 1/5
I can’t find my school on here to even log in. There is only one option with my school and it’s not the one I need.
Great app 5/5
By PS Smitty
I have finished 1 masters degree in theology with black board and now I am starting my MBA. You are still bette off actually logging into your blackboard account from your laptop o computer. However, if you are on the go this app is fantastic
Fix your product 1/5
By Someone 2.012i8ejhcdalksdj
No ability to upload documents, view documents, download documents or use blackboard at all. Great patch guys, you really fixed it good!
Not even worth it
Blackboard is awesome except... 5/5
By Caroline Carbaugh
As much as I love this app, I can’t even see what people are writing on the discussion board with this recent update so please fix that bug. This is a rather annoying bug as a blind user who uses the blackboard application so by all means please fix this
App no longer works 1/5
This app used to work. It was handy so I wouldn’t need to use safari. It was simple
Sadly it stopped working completely on march 7th. No way to contact support. Can’t even send feedback because the app gives an error.
Bad update 1/5
App got updated and now it keeps logging me out and crashing 90% of the time I get on it.
Update don’t work 1/5
Since the update a few days ago black
Board doesn’t load. Worked fine before please fix
I loved the app before it received the update from 2 days ago! Nothing is loading properly, the app is moving slow, and I am not able to complete my work on my phone!
Cannot login 1/5
I usually like this app but it can no longer find my school and will not allow me to login.
Broken one minute before and after app update 4/5
By I Love My Truck
I do not update critical apps unless; 1. security concerns are addressed 2. major bugs are neutralized 3. app stops working. The latter issue is the reason I updated this Blackboard app as the following message appeared on my iPhone:
There seems to be an issue on our side. Please try again later.”
However, this message appeared this night (2019.03.06) and after updating to the new Version 3.12.1 the same message appears with no access to Blackboard.
I am using an iPhone X running iOS Version 12.1.4
For the love of fellow JAGUARS, please developers fix the issue as we do enjoy using this app.
Don’t update it won’t work 1/5
After update its not working ... I can make this app better in my spare time.. if you guys don’t have capable support
Bad update 1/5
Since the update the app doesn’t work at all. Cannot load
Usually works 2/5
By hadrians wall ball
Overall it’s pretty good. Nice looking user interface. It seems like least once a week I can’t download any lecture material through the app, which gets frustrating when I’m trying to get the material before class starts.
App doesn’t work 1/5
Application doesn’t work on iPhone XS. Even with full working internet.
There has been some issue with operating the app! Plz fix it!
logs me out all the time, doesn’t send me notifications when i need them. just use the web browser on your laptop and save yourself the time.
Garbage update 1/5
App was working fine until the update yesterday to include “rich text”. Now it won’t load any of my courses beyond what was there before the update.
Used to use the app more then the website itself 1/5
Now, even though it’s for the same institution that runs Blackboard, and I can easily log in as usual online, I was randomly logged out of the app and my saved log in information, which works for the browser version, does not work on the app. This seems to be an update problem not a personal or Institution related problem. Would gladly give the 5 stars back once it’s been fixed. Currently running IOS 12 on an IPhone XS Max.
