Okay, I was typing something and the app crashed for twice. And I lost everything that I already typed in. So I had to do those things again for twice.
A sad excuse for a mobile application 1/5
This developer takes advantage of a large user base of students and teachers who are required to use canvas software by their institution. Since they have such an attached user base, the developers get away with developing a shoddy, bug-ridden application with a horrific interface; this is unacceptable.
For example, the most noticible issue is the instability of how content is delivered. I am not a developer, but it seems like the app is not downloading content in the most efficient way. The dashboard is horrible–it takes about 10 seconds to load on each app launch. The display of html content is very hard to navigate. And when leaving the app, it does not save your location in the app, downloading all the data again on re entry!!!
The next huge issue is the interface because it’s confusing and inefficient. Honestly, their interface design was already dated when it came out, and it’s only getting worse as the app is updated. The entire navigation theough the app is horrible-there are about 4 to 8 different ways to go back at any point in the interface, some of which produce unexpected black screens and the like. Additionally, the process of submitting assignments is exhausting. You have to share the file to the app, which should have been deprecated in ios 10 or 11 after files were implemented. Additionally, there are another 3 or 4 ways to submit a video, and I don’t understand what the whole scrolley thing is for with the big orange rectangle. I’m sorry this is all I have time to write down right now.
Great interface and overall well designed app 4/5
My only issue with this app is that it sometimes logs me out randomly.
Useful but could be better 4/5
Opening powerpoints open only a portion of the powerpoint per pge so alot of cut off pages. Have to re login sometimes which is very ineffecient.
Good app bad update 1/5
Updated the app and now it doesn’t work!
I Love 1/5
I y yet another Europe
Not user friendly to sign up 1/5
Signed up with NW ILLINOIS for a course. Sign up should be straight forward, not having to read guides on figuring out how to log on and use “other “ browsers as it states on your site
It’s great BUT.... 5/5
I have been using this app for school this year and it has been a life-saver. It’s easy to use and very efficient HOWEVER I wish that the app would notify me of discussion posts only when there is a reply to my specific post or comment(s). Quite annoying that I get a notification every time someone posts because they aren’t addressing my discussion posts. Other than that, pretty happy with the function of the app. 👍🏽
Too hard to find school,difficult to get to field to type url 1/5

Go back to school 5/5
By wu Guochan
It’s feeling good I still have chance to go back to school on my age, Hope can learn more English,Then I can help other people who dosn’t know English, But at my age , My memory going down, I always forgot things😥, So,I try my best to make the study done.
Canvas Student 5/5
Extremely helpful in getting updates without having to open up my laptop or check my email frequently. Works just like any other app with notifications. Highly recommend
Needs Improvment 3/5
By swiz wizzel
Usage wise this is a great app but, it has a lot of problems. I get a white screen after entering my school. I get signed out for no reason.
By Jace Niatka
It crashes quite often. I can’t always submit assignments but I can easily do that from my laptop. Having the app makes it easier to check what I need to read and to see due dates and such. I’d love to get the todo stuff synced with my calendar on my phone! That would make things so much easier and make it a 4 or 5 star!
Missing a schedule function, but for the rest a great app!
Application lag 3/5
This application is slow to respond sometimes when transferring from course to course. It is also slow to register input from the keyboard when dealing with discussion boards.
Notes gone 2/5
By bethany 55
It’s great just hate then when professors make changes all my work and side notes get erase. X/
By Preston cox
There’s no point in having an app for canvas if you can’t upload files or submit assignments on the app. All this “convenient technology” is pointless if you can’t actually do schoolwork
this app is such a time saver for my classes! It lets me keep on schedule with i have to do.
Necessary app for students 5/5
This app will become one of the most used apps on your phone, especially during finals week
Discussion Navigation Poor 3/5
Although it is great to access the course material and grades via phone, it is extremely challenging to locate unread posts. This is partly due to the way instructors use this area - but in any case it should be smoother.
Can log in 1/5
I have been using the app on my iPad for almost two semesters now. For some reason it has kicked me our and says that “most likely the user has denied application access”? And that the authentication has failed. Wish I could log in with the app instead of safari!
Need improvement 3/5
Needs improvement sending messages to all students in class, instead of selecting one by one.
Good. Not perfect, but good 4/5
Not all canvas services are available in the app. Otherwise, it works great for checking up on stuff and pulling up items to read on my iPad or phone.
Grade comparison 3/5
By Bugdans bbq
I’d like to be able to see where I fall in the class comparison in the app. I can only see that in the browser
Previous classes 4/5
Wish it would pull up all previous classes taken.
Amazing app for class 5/5
This app is amazing and allow you to reach your professor in less than 5mins. You can view all
Your classes and grades, submit work as well.
Nice App 5/5
This app is very easy to use and always works well whenever I use it.
I would give Canvas a better rating if one could go between modules and email without having to log in again.
Very reliable. Weak discussions boards. 4/5
This app is very easy to use and reliable. I like its simple design.
But I don’t like is how difficult is to navigate around the discussion boards. When you have many many comments it’s impossible to reorganize them by date, read/unread, or user. It also lacks the ability to collapse threads Reddit style. Also, you can’t check your own comments and see if you had answers in the discussion, there is no way to jump or list your own posts. When you touch the notification for an answer in a discussion, it sends you to the top of it and not to that interaction.
The mobile app 4/5
It is a nice feature but I’d like to see the edit and delete for our own posts like in the website feature.
It’s convenient, easy to use.
Yes I am enjoying the course but the time required to complete the assignments was hugely misrepresented.
To speed read the modules and participate in the webinars takes 4-6 hours. To think things through and intelligently complete all that’s required takes a good 20 hours a week.
Support is excellent but the Canvas Guidelines are lengthy and generally useless.
The laptop version and the cell phone version of the course are different and I lost a lot of time working this out.
Interesting course but lots of technical debugging is needed. And please be more forthright about the time required to complete the course.
New update needs work 3/5
Canvas use to work very well. Since the new update, when I get a notification and I swipe to view that specific assignment it just takes me to the course page instead of the assignment. Therefore, I can no longer view some of the submission comments on my assignments.
I absolutely love this app for the simple fact or more than allows me to access my courses from my school efficiently. I recommend to everyone that can have access to it. Much worth the convenience.
Love the app 5/5
The app is very reliable.
Very useful 5/5
Very useful and easy to manage
Text is cutoff 4/5
When taking an assessment the questions are partially hidden behind the answers and reading them is difficult.
Good ; my PC is being repaired 5/5
Very efficient for reading on am iPhone. May require a refresh for loading. WiFi a must.
I live this app!!!! 5/5
It’s easy to navigate and user friendly 10 stars for sure!!!!
Worst app ever 1/5
By foto student
During my photoshop app I was able to access my course materials,but when I downloaded the app I can never get to my class.
The app does not recognize me by my e mail, but asks me to locate a school.
Very frustrating, as I have to go through thousand of mails to find my instructors links.
The reset password doesn’t work either. I would rate the app as zero not even one star
Won’t allow me to open on iPad Pro 11 inch 1/5
I type in my school name it goes to the site but it just remains white. Not a problem with the internet because I’m using that same internet right now to type this
Canvas review 5/5
I love it!
Not Built to Do Classes on Mobile 3/5
By JoJo Ronga
Sadly the app is only usable for reminders... You cannot actually do you classes online.
Needs work 2/5
Not as user friendly as actually logging on to canvas through an actual computer. I still have to log on to a laptop and download assignments or print assignments even forward an assignment to the professor or another student. It requires another application to edit on google apps.
Canvas is wonderful 5/5
By Builder of Men
We have used Blackboard for years and have recently switched. Canvas is easier to use and has more features. In fact, it is sort of fun to use, for a learning platform.

Yes, yes, yes! 5/5
I am currently in grad school and I teach full-time so I have a lot going on. This app allows me to stay up to date with EVERYTHING involving school. I really love that I can check my grades and assignments at any time! I don’t have to pull my laptop out...it’s right here on my phone. The app loads quickly and does an awesome job sending notifications. I would recommend for anyone who schools uses Canvas. I just love it!
