UI is confuse, keeps logging me out, notifications wont link to the right place 1/5
Definitely not the best App for school related stuff, unfortunately my school uses it and teachers have to use it too, inwonder how they were still unable to link notifications with the right page... just a very poor experience we have

Hard to navigate
Great for on the go 4/5
I can see updates and classes easily and on the fly for City U of Seattle. Interface is easy to use as well.
Small suggestion. I would like to see a ‘touch ID/eye scan ’ login since it’s the norm for logging in these days.
Easy to use and a great way to check my grades, course documents and resources.
Old format 1/5
By an avid clasher
I used to use this app all of the time. I didn’t have to sign in every time I used it, it was great. Then an update came along that changed all of that. Now I have to log in every time I use it and I can’t figure out where anything is at! If we could go back to the old format, that’d be great.
good app 1/5
By Lul Kwak

Little Use - Most Assignments Missing 1/5
Most assignments are not listed for any of the two dozen classes I have taken which used Blackboard. When there were links to assignments, the text of the assignment is not there just a link to upload or post a discussion. Not very useful like this.
This is a good blackboard app. 4/5
The UI and UX are good - very user friendly. However, My only gripe is that links or documents are not clickable in Course Announcements. Please fix.
Not very happy with this one. 2/5
Cannot see the courses I am teaching. The app I had was great. IOS updated making the good one unusable. This one too clunky. Not user friendly.
Constant problems 1/5
If i could give this app a zero i would I have had nothing but problems with it. The ebook with the course won’t load i can’t get to my assignments or see anything else. I keep getting error message that this course must be viewed from a computer yet the school directs me to download this app for my course. By very definition an app runs on a mobile device. I have an iPad Pro for crying out loud.
As an instructor it doesn’t work 1/5
This app is not for instructors
Convenient app, way better and easier to navigate than the website!
Can’t login 1/5
App keeps saying that my credentials are incorrect, according to the website, this is a known issue. Summer semester started over a week ago and there’s no progress towards a solution. Missing Canvas after changing schools.
By Beaut (Bre)
This Blackboard app is so helpful to me and easy to use..
Slow and not optimized for mobile 1/5
App is very slow and views are not optimized for phone.
Love the app 5/5
I, Eric Cherry, absolutely love this app!! It comes in handy and prompts me to check for work or grades faster than having to log into the website!! Great work!!
This app is trash! It hardly ever works and now it’s telling me my credentials are incorrect when they aren’t! I can log into B.B. from the web but not the app using the same exact log in info definitely deleted this app! Don’t waste your time
Great, but would like to see a few more features 4/5
For some courses, students can see the medians and means, but this is not a feature implemented in the app. I have to use the desktop version of the site to see them, and it does not look very good on there. I would like to simply view it here in the app.
Problems downloading content 2/5
By Angel Gregoriano
The app is user friendly indeed. But works half of the time. I am having issues downloading content that my professors put on Blackboard. This makes the whole app thing useless.
stopped working 1/5
i was always signed in, but since the update it’s not letting me sign on but i got online & it will. it’s a waste of an app 🤷🏽♀️
Terrible bb app. Hope they improve it or someone else develops a better one.
You use it because you have to 1/5
One of those apps that are imposed on you- the people who made blackboard only have to sell their product to the schools, not the users, and you can see it in their website and their app...
Merge Semesters 4/5
I tried logging onto my app for my Summer courses and kept giving me the Spring semester courses. I had to uninstall the app and re-install again so the option to chose the summer semester as my classes. Hmmm could someone just merge them all into one app regardless of what semester it is? Thanks!
Sign in 1/5
I can’t even sign in and my classes start today
Why do I have to sign in every time? 1/5
It's my account I should always be signed in. So dumb I have to sign in every time. I might as well just delete the app and just go on safari.
Great app! Easy to use! 5/5
It’s a really cool app ! It is very beneficial and helpful to access grades and things instead of going on the website which can take awhile sometimes . I’m so glad I found this app and I can’t wait to use it in the future !
Wasted download 1/5
I am unsure where any of the reviews are coming from. I downloaded the app because it said my school was on their mobile list. As soon as i try to log in it says i must use the web version. All it does is open another window that acts as a new browser. You must still go threw every step of signing into your account like you would had already been doing on safari or google or Firefox. I did not download this app so that i had to add 3 more steps to sign into my BB account.
100% a waste of a download. It in no way works as they claim it does. Good thing I didn’t pay for this crap!
There’s problem 1/5
By King Kalee
After last Update the classes room not working
Overall good 4/5
A little slow at times but overall helpful and convenient.
Okay service 3/5
It’s not the best but I definitely love it more than the website because of how clean and professional look it has. It still needs some fixing but other than that good tool it reminds me when I have something due which is the reason why I have it!
Great app 5/5
It is a great app, I can see what’s going on and any update with my course 24/7. I can even do my posting through my phone.
App is broken it won’t let me sign in
Overall, it’s a very good and easy to use app. I wish there was an app for Campus Connect along with Blackboard, as well as something for a student email. I wouldn’t mind if these three were all wrapped together into one app or separate apps.
Doesn’t do anything 1/5
By N o b o d y
I can log in but can only see 2 classes (one hidden) from years ago.
Blackboard is fond of blaming the institution/instructor when things don’t work. But I have never in my life experienced a worse user interface than the blackboard teacher interface. If getting classes to show up on the app is five hours of ui hell instead of trivially easy, that’s blackboards fault. The fact that they have to have a disclaimer in your blurb is a testament to how widespread the problem is.
broken app 1/5
Literally worked for one semester...that was 2 years ago. I know my school is supported because i’ve used the app for half a term. Since then I’ve been receiving incorrect user/pass errors upon logging in. I have verified the correct credentials with my school numerous times now. I haven’t been able to gain access to the app for more than 2 years now and I have no idea why.
Pretty good 4/5
Never had any real issues with this app. I do wish it supported Split View on iPad, and there was the ability to hide grades when a class is selected (or just the color coding). Either than that, solid app!
Washtenaw Community College app 5/5
This app is so convenient, just wish I could stay logged in!
By Maddi W.
It’s nothing personal. I just hate school.
I don’t get any updates!!!! Even though I changed to receive all updates and yet nothing! I deleted and downloaded it repeatedly and nothing. Horrible.
Please save my username and password! 2/5
It’s extremely annoying to have to type in my username, password, and go through the authentication process every single time I want to access the app. Please add a remember me option!
I like it but... 4/5
I just wish i didn’t have to keep logging in every time I need to use it, or that because I am a CUNY student it's like an extra step to it, idk unless im just being picky
School App 4/5
Great app, just doesn’t give me notifications about grades sometimes
I can’t parts now 4/5
By Rag dolls88
Since the update yesterday I can’t access my grades and badges. It tells me there is an error when I try to access Blackboard on my phone
Logs you out constantly 1/5
It’d be super cool is I didn’t have to log in every single time I opened the app🤗
Greatest app ever :) 5/5
By JLo 4
Great app! Fast and easy to navigate!! Recommend it to all students
New Update won't even let me on 1/5
App worked great up until the April 30, 2018 update in which I got kicked off the app and it won't let me log in at all.
This app is awesome and so convenient, but it’s a pain to have to login every single time. There should be an option to save username and password at least.
No notifications 1/5
I have to go to the actual blackboard website to look at new notifications because they aren’t on the app. Some of the grades aren’t listed on the app either.
Terrible app 1/5
From a professor’s viewpoint, this app is incredibly problematic. The app screen does not “mirror” the online/laptop screen, which leads to so much confusion on the students’ end. For example, the app screen doesn’t hide categories that the professor wishes to hide. In a course where the grades are weighted, the “Total Points” category STILL shows up, despite all efforts to hide it, and students may erroneously assume they have a higher grade than they really do. The fact that instructors can’t see on the app what the students see (a version of the “Student View” that you get on a laptop) is frustrating as well.
