Great App! 5/5
This is a great check in to see your progress. Obviously- do all your common app work on a computer, but this gives you lots of great tips and tutorials come time to fill out applications.
Can't login!!!!!! 1/5
It does not allow me to login!!!!!
Still broken - can't log in 1/5
They say the latest update fixed the login issues, but it didn't. We can easily log in to the Web page, but using the same login information on the app fails to log in.
Given how much $$$ the Common App folks make, it's ridiculous that this app has such basic issues.
Developer finally contacted me - 5 months after I complained to them and submitted this review. Useless customer support. It's horrific that something thousands of students depend upon is so buggy and has such horrible support. I'd give zero stars if I could.
Should be more helpful 1/5
By C. Krypto
I have been having trouble getting on the common app on my computer due to some unrelated issues. I added a college of my choice to my list and when I click on it, all it does is tell me about the college. I could be missing the deadline trying to figure out if I am missing something, but as it turns out, all this app does is make you struggle to log in and allow you to look at information about a college you most likely have already found out or track your application. My suggestion is that you guys find a way to give us the power to actually complete applications on this app, otherwise this app is just glorified propaganda that can not live up to the needs of the consumer. The CEO’s/CFO’s reading this may not care but here is why you should: Unhappy consumers/customers = a decrease in activity on your product = no money in your pockets. DO NOT just simply say “reach out to us @appsupport.whatever”, actually fix the problem!!
Can't log in 1/5
I am not able to log in to the app. I just downloaded the app to December 11, 2017. Please update the app this will be very helpful.
It doesn't even let me log in. My account is 'unrecognizable' but I know that I'm entering all the information correctly. It'd be a life saver to be able to actually use this app, though.
Not an alternate to the website. 2/5
I was on the road and wanted to look a college’s unique question to start thinking about what to write. When I tried to access the website on mobile, it redirected me to this app so I decided to give it a try. I downloaded the app and logged in with no fuss. When I opened the app and clicked on the the college specific question section it brought me to a tutorial on what a “college specific question” is. This is app is pretty useless it really on shows the status of your applications and you can’t actually do anything with them.
TL;DR: Only shows application status.
Login still does not work 1/5
Devs state they fixed the login issue but it still does not work.
Pretty bad 1/5
By anthony allmond
Can't log in, the problem is probably the @... can't be a special website like your school account
UPDATE .... still doesn't work :/
Can't Log in 1/5
Even with the right username and password, you won't be able to log in
Login issues 1/5
This app won't recognize my account even after I changed my password
Can't even log in 1/5
Like many other reviews are stating, the app will not recognize my log in and it is very important to have access on my phone and iPad. Dissapointing
Awful App 1/5
By Loyal Gamer 56
The app is a big waste of time to mess around with because it doesn't let you log in even if you have an account. I've been trying to get onto the app for the past couple weeks because it would be a life saver to help me finish my college applications. The only problem is that the app doesn't recognize my account. I even tried contacting CommonApp's tech department to help me, but after an hour of shooting emails back and forth, I got fed up with it and just gave up because nothing they tried worked and they just kept telling me they don't know what's wrong. I know I'm entering my email and password correctly because I can still log onto the Common App from my phone online, just not the app. Don't bother getting it, because it will just waste your time.
This is awful 1/5
By Marley Barley Snowflake
I had completed the common app and then the website shut down for awhile, making me miss the deadline for an application. Then, when the website was finally back up, I went to log into my account and could not log in. My application that had taken hours was deleted.
Cant login 1/5
The login will not work
By A desperate HS senior
I feel bad reviewing this since I can't even get into my account to see how it functions - fix it. Please.
Login Issues 2/5
Logging in does not work on my phone unless I use Safari or Chrome. It works on my computer, just not within the ap.
Won't Login!!! :( 1/5
By D-League Fanatic
Login for the app doesn't work
By Ellie Mari Kirkwood
Glad to have this to help me apply for colleges :)
No Point 3/5
Not a bad app per say, and I didn't really expect it to be anything great, but it's actually just completely useless
Keeps your application progress organized 5/5
You use this for exploring and adding any of almost 700 colleges using CA. This latest version lets you invite recommenders and see the status of your rec forms. It's also handy as a quick reference for how complete your apps are and for staying on top of deadlines.
Not diverse 1/5
By May kor
This app is limited to HBCUs.
Doesn't work. 1/5
Everytime I try to go to colleges it just loads forever and nothing happens so I have to force- shut down the app.
Add Colleges 1/5
Won't let me add schools. Stays on loading screen.
Needs to be fixed 2/5
By Idk a nickname now
The app is a good idea but it doesn't work.
Great Supplement App for Deadlines 5/5
You can see all your colleges, see what parts of the applications you have or have not completed, their deadlines, and see if your recommenders have finished their letters.
The app is great!
It won't let me pick any colleges 1/5
It gets stuck on the loading screen.. :/
Looks great but won't work! 1/5
This looks like such an awesome app. But every time I go to "colleges" it just shows the loading symbol forever! Please fix this!
Best app 5/5
This app is perfect for college and all students should have this. Will always be useful 😄
Great App!! 5/5
This app is great to check the status of my application and to keep me in check. I doesn't let you write essays but once you have submitted shows you the progress of your application.
It's very helpful as a mobile app though the desktop site does a lot more. Nonetheless it's very organized and keeps everything in check but it would also be very helpful if some of the application could be done on mobile and I wanted to ask, does the app tell you if you've been accepted or rejected by colleges?
Doesn't help 2/5
It doesn't really help if I can't write essays or answer some of the questions. I can set reminders and not waste space by downloading this.
