I just downloaded this app and I love it instantly 5/5
I just downloaded this app and I love it instantly because it keeps me up to date on the go. I don’t have to consistently keep logging into my iCollege for gsu on my laptop or on my phone in safari.
Pulse works well on iOS devices for the most part. However, you cannot view embedded Google Slide content because the app uses Safari. I wish that users could choose the browser that Pulse uses or that Pulse would automatically detect and use the default browser app set for the device so that all content would be viewable.
can’t go to d2l 1/5
where is d2l @
It’s Okay 3/5
The app requires the functionality of webpages, rather than being a fully functional source in itself. In general, it’s not as intuitive as even the ‘echo’ engine my high school had. It needs some UI work.
Top notch 5/5
This app is top notch. It helps me keep track of my assignments and announcements for school. It also helps me keep track of my grades received for my assignments/quizzes. Thank you Pulse app!
This is Awesome 5/5
New Update 1/5
PLEASE add back the ability to view courses using the web browser!!! That link to bring up the web browser was essential for me to be able to download powerpoint slides onto my iPad. This app will be almost irrelevant to me without that feature.
Needs to update some features 2/5
By why u do dis to me .-.
This app would be great if I could actually download the content I needed from my iPad. The app only allows you to make documents downloadable for offline use. I find that useless since I need to annotate on these documents. Also it’s extremely frustrating to use and Isn’t as organized as the desktop version.
Hard to understand
App works partially 2/5
I could not access the course reading material. The site indicated access denied. I have to go back to my computer and could do my course work on the go.
Doesn’t ever get past blank screen 1/5
I am trying to use this app with American Military University but it never gets past a blank screen after selecting my college. I can’t figure out if this is a problem with my college or a problem with the app. Regardless the college says to use the app and it doesn’t work.
When I want to download notes or put them in notability for note taking, I have to go through the browser. I can’t just do it from the app.
Good App 5/5
Helps me keep up with assignments and grades!
I have never felt so unorganized in a classroom before. As far as the app goes, it is just a mini browser of what you see on a computer. The computer layout is horrible. I would like to be able to see each post from a larger view, not just scrolling through them in the largest font possible. It is hard to keep up with despite the sort options. It would also be nice if it was easy to navigate, but you have to jump through too many screens. This is going to be the most frustrating class ever and not because of the content/course itself.
Nice, but in-app content limited 4/5
By Michael W. McCormick
Thanks for providing this app, but basics like content tab pages and assignment feedback should be in the app too. Instead you’ve got to click a link to open them in the website.
Great but not the Best 4/5
I like that it alerts and notifies me of everything that’s posted but I wish it had a feature that allowed us to see which notifications we haven’t seen. I don’t think it would help very many out but I’d definitely give the app a more polished and refined impression. As well as discard any notifications that the no longer exist on the actual online website if the professor took it down. I haven’t had the AP for two long but I wish there was a setting that allowed us to have a bit more control over which tasks we could set so stand reminders for like if we have a test coming up and we could set a reminder for every other day at 7pm so we could remember to study.
It’s so close to perfect... 5/5
Hi devs. I constantly recommend this app to my college friends because of how useful it is. 5 stars because it’s so handy, skipping login and whatnot!
Thank you so much, you’ve made something that has saved my life hundreds of times (metaphorically)!
However, an improvement could be made. It doesn’t allow pop-ups when browsing D2L, so I can’t get the full functionality of the site, like replying to emails and interacting with certain media.
I would really appreciate it if you added pop-up compatibility to D2L, even just redirecting the page to the pop-up! Thanks for hearing me out.
highly recommend! 5/5
this app is simple & so convenient!
i am able to receive notifications of a new assignment has been created, a project i stayed up all night to perfect is finally graded and i can simply tap to see my grade!, etc.
I wish I could more easily respond to discussion boards or complete small assignments like that while doing something such as sitting in Starbucks drive-thru, 😁 But app is still great as is!
Highly recommend if anybody questioning too good to be true as I did before downloading!
Great app 5/5
By bighead bri
I work 5 days a week so this app really helps me out to stay on top of my school work. But it keeps sending me the same notifications over and over . The assignment is past due and I’ve already turned it in and got a grade for it but for some reason I keep getting the notification. But overall great app
By Alexa Moe
Just no. Stick to canvas. Very confusing. Impossible to use!
Makes checking school work so much easier! 5/5
I go to Middle Tennessee State University and this app is an absolute life saver! It keeps me up to date and gives me the opportunity to check grades and assignments while away from my laptop. If your school supports Pulse, I highly recommend downloading it.
Basic af 1/5
By Preview Works Better
Basically a browser to navigate to your institution’s Brightspace without logging in. You do get notifications, but you can get those with email. And Amalthea doesn’t work for iOS within the app. You have to enable cookies in Safari to get it to work, which is dumb if you’re trying to prevent web tracking.
Why have an app if it doesn’t even function as a stand-alone resource? You literally just log in with Safari and you get everything listed for your courses rather than having to check everything in the browser within the app?
Can’t log into iCollege through app.
Cookie and sessions cannot be unblocked 1/5
It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies. pluse
This is an awesome tool. And I thank God for it.
On the right track 3/5
I just wish that the app offered the same features as the website has. There’s a lot that I have to go to the website to see. That being said, I’m glad there’s something
A main component of my coursework is discussion participation. This app simply opens up the browser version of discussion boards - little mobile optimization.
Similarly, course announcements and assignment details load slowly on a browser pop-up.
It is nice to get push notifications/brief summary when grades are posted.
Thanks !! 5/5
This app is a lot of help.
Glitches make it worthless 1/5
Keeps telling me I need to login. Once I login I can see my classes for a split second before it logs me back out. But I know I’m logged in because I keep getting notifications on my phone when my classes have updates. Please fix otherwise this app is useless to me.
It’s ok 3/5
By Ajah garrison
I have this app for school. It great for connecting me to my assignments, but if an assignment requires a video on the internet or something, it doesn’t allow it.
Can’t you grade a pdf by hand directly?!
Asking students to email me the quiz and grade it directly in the email (iPad has this capability) is easier than trying to use this app - or the desktop version.
For each quiz one needs to download the pdf, grade it in some other app that allow you to write in, upload the pdf again... this multiplied by hundreds of students... you ought to think of a better way.
New Issues with the App 1/5
I used to be able to log into my classes BBCollaborate classes and access them through the app and that was a wonderful and very convenient feature. Now BBCollab never works when I try.
Can’t Login 1/5
I recently downloaded the app and tried to login before my college started classes. Didn’t work and then I changed my password and it still didn’t work. Then, I tried login after classes had begun and it still doesn’t work. I don’t know what it is.
It will not let me log into any of my accounts, ecore or D2L. Just shown a black screen.
Doesn’t work 1/5
When entering the app it asks “who is providing your learning?” And I try to type in my school but nothing shows up it is just a blank screen. No other tabs or anything else to press.
Defund the use of this App. 1/5
This app in its entirety is garbage at best. It’s a complete waste of money for then university.
Like the app 5/5
It lets me check in on my class, and can see feedback from other students on assignment. It just a time saver for me
Wow! Pleasantly surprised 5/5
This app is awesome! When you are juggling multiple classes this does a great job of letting you see your upcoming work without having to drag out your laptop or sign in with a browser. I like getting real time notifications about grades and updates and feeling more involved with my schooling. I like that it is in “dark mode” so it’s more calming to the eye. I would love if I could color code my own classes. The brown and gold are close in color so I mix up what assignment is for each class. I showed this app to a friend who’s college doesn’t use Brightspace/D2L and she wishes they did since she was impressed with the functionality!
What’s the point then? 2/5
It just takes me to my schools website, I can’t see anything from my courses within the app other than their name.
So helpful! 5/5
By alea marie1
I wish I knew about this a year ago. I love it keeps me on track.
Login issue 1/5
I’ve been having a hard time logging in to d2l on the app and online. I even changed my password a couple times cause I thought that would be the problem, but that was not the case. I am honestly disappointed because the school site put up an announcement for this app and it made me think it would be really good but right of the bar I had such a hard time. I don’t think I’ll get to use this app any time soon.
Mainly just an extension of your browser 2/5
It’s a well developed app sorely lacking in features. What it does have is well executed. Various bits of information from your course are available in the app. But for about 80% of total information available on bright space per course you have to go to the course home to see it and it essentially just takes you to their mobile website. This is fine I guess but makes me question why they even have an app. Poor user experience having to open an in app web browser.
Daytona State College 5/5
By Skye Alexia
This app was pretty amazing. I just graduated with my AA and the school I am transferring to does not utilize Bright Space. This was a serious help and I’m glad i discovered this app pretty early. I seriously recommend if your school uses is available. Good luck!
Sooooo Helpful! 5/5
I’m a freshman in college this year. I’m extremely stressed because I don’t know what to expect. Thankfully this app gives me notifications when something is due or something is graded. It’s so helpful for people who are a little forgetful (like me). Would most definitely recommend !
Good for checking grades and announcements 4/5
The app is a nice tool to access minor things like when grades and announcements are posted. Not as user friendly like the website and, if I’m not mistaken, the app actually routes you to the website for major things.
Gotta have it 5/5
This app is invaluable for people like me who have days full of activities. I love the prompts that make sure I don’t miss an assignment.
Productivity Killer 1/5
Constant problems with this app. Slides play with no volume. The phone turns off when PowerPoint slide presentations are being made. If the app is playing a video, then the video plays all the way through without the phone turning off. Try pausing the video and there’s a tiny button to play and pause. Hit refresh in a module and sometimes it doesn’t work. It would be so nice to stay on top of coursework on the go. I had no such luck with this app and am happy to be done with my coursework this week. Then I can uninstall this app.
I can’t click on the course 1/5
Hi my courses for my class are up however on this app I can’t click to enter into it. I have to actually go to the web page. What’s the point of the app if I need to use the webpage. Please fix this problem, thanks.
