Common App app reviews

  • It works but it doesn’t fit my screen 4/5

    By raging idiot
    Ive got an iphone XS and i can’t tap or use some of the icons because it doesn’t fit on my phone screen. My battery and time is covering the buttons :(
  • Doesn’t work for transfer students :/ 1/5

    By Leia Calumet
    It just takes you to the webpage.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By dhdhhsvdvs
    Won’t let me log in at all terrible app that doesn’t work
  • No in-app access for transfer students? 1/5

    By Cameron B 315
    As a transfer student (not a first-year) I don’t seem to be able to access my applications through the app, it just takes me to the web and doesn’t load the page. If there is a way to access my applications through the app that would be amazing! If not I would suggest the developers consider making that work for both first-year and transfer students.
  • Horrible for transfer applicants 1/5

    By From:Create A Name
    It literally just links you to the website for transfer applicants, quite literally no app functionality, horrible.
  • Transfer Students Can’t Sign In 1/5

    By RS-N
    As a transfer student, the sign-in doesn’t work for us. Crappy.
  • Need an option to stay signed in 3/5

    By One of the most popular
    I’m a fan of the Common app and I’m grateful for a mobile version which allows ease of use. However… the requirement to sign in upon opening the app each time makes the app more difficult to use. Please at least give us the option to stay signed in :)
  • App 5/5

    By Boujee Baboon
    It has an app
  • Works for me 4/5

    By iexidt
  • Not for transfer students 1/5

    By journey to college
    Must only work for first year students because the transfer student tab will redirect you to safari
  • Based 5/5

    This is a totally based app that comes of great help to me. I like it a lot and therefore you should download it
  • Just a Web Browser 1/5

    By Arwing Production
    Really? I would've thought that an imporatant tool such as assiting students in creating future college careers could have an applications that works natively on iOS. But I was wrong and this application is just a reskinned web browser with CommonApp being its only tab, window, and start page. On phones without the button, the "web browser" appears in areas unreachable to interact with. Completely Useless
  • Not functional for recommenders 1/5

    By v.daniell
    If you are on your phone, the website will constantly steer you to use the app, which you download and find doesn’t work unless you’re a student. So common all does function at all using iOS if you are a recommender.
  • Useless for transfer students 1/5

    By Einaloj
    It doesn’t allow transfer students to log in on the app, so it’s useless. Disappointed.
  • Transfers can’t use 1/5

    By Tooty tootenstein
    You can’t use the app if you’re a transfer student so it’s completely useless for me.
  • Transfer Student Negligence 1/5

    By laynextor
    First year students are allowed to sign in, but transfer students just get taken to a phone browser instead of the app, disappointed.
  • I’m annoyed. 1/5

    By annoyedtransferstudent
    I’m glad it works so well for first year students.... but just like the website, there are things accessible to first year students that transfer students are not able to access. So yeah, doesn’t allow transfer students to sign in. Stupid. Maybe you should fix that. I’d give you no stars if I could because I’m annoyed that I’m being discriminated against.
  • Negligent to transfer students 1/5

    By cm33322
    Title. Can’t even log into the app if you’re a transfer student lol. Was hoping this would be convenient to use when on the go and could double-check prompts easily or something like that. Didn’t expect much from it in the first place, yet it still found a way to utterly let me down.
  • Great but needs to fix one big thing 4/5

    By Conorhk23
    When I go into the app, I have to login every time.
  • Sends filthy emails 1/5

    By Lucy86547
    President of common app Jenny Rickards sent an email with racist language and extreme bias.
  • Racist language from CEO 1/5

    By Mayjoe
    As a mom, I am OUTRAGED and ANGERED by the email sent out by their CEO. Outraged by the race warfare encouraged by people like this. Not to mention the CEO of a “college app” misspelled "supremacist".
  • Well designed app 5/5

    By AppsForever2020
    Well... now we can carry our anxiety on our iPhones too!
  • Tedious and non-intuitive 1/5

    By Sirjohann
    Worse application process. Long support wait. Hard stops every step of the way. Like common core learning. The common app is the same non sense logic.
  • Doesn’t work on iPhone??? 1/5

    By KiraG0618
    Could the developer reach out? When I try to sign into the transfer side it just takes me to the website and doesn’t return me to the app after signing in. What’s the point of an app if I have to use the site?
  • Doesn’t work for transfer students 1/5

    By mima the mami
    I got so excited when I found out it was finally an app since it’s way more convenient but when I click on the transfer tab it just prompts me to use the common app on a browser. Super disappointing! 🙄
  • Great app 4/5

    By Shelbylw22
    Works well but I would love to not have to sign in every time.
  • common APP lol 3/5

    By lucypram
    I’m surprised this hasn’t happened earlier but I’m happy that people can use this as an app now instead of a website. The functions are all the same, but I WOULD like to say that having this app has started to add onto my application stress. My phone is my break and escape from all of my college and school stress but seeing this app has added to my anxiety. You get what you’re looking for in this app, but beware of college stress fellow applicants!
  • Lol common app app 4/5

    accept me stanford👋
  • follow my ig @taramarizzle 5/5

    By reallysadgirl143
    i’ve been waiting for this app, now it’s so much easier to access my common app account instead of using safari, 10/10
  • College Board = Evil Corporation 1/5

    By yoda 592
    Exactly what the title says.
  • This is the common app app 5/5

    By Zachisrich
    Only gave 5 stars because it's called the common app app and that's retry funny. In terms of how useful it is, it's basically just the common app website in an app. I guess it's kind of nice but there's no huge advantage versus just using the website. It's a little nicer because it takes up the whole acreen. Unfortunately it doesn't save your login info so you must enter it every time.
  • Good Start 3/5

    By cokoli12
    Thank you for FINALLY making an app for the Common App. This literally helps a lot of us out who are doing this on the go. Obviously, the Common App is something millions of students already use for their college applications, so this review won’t really be geared toward the platform in general, but more towards the actual app performance. Now, this app is just starting out but I do believe there are some issues that need to be resolved before I can give this a higher rating. I shouldn’t have to login every time I leave the app to switch to another one. This is my phone after all, other folks aren’t going to be accessing it. At the very least, keep us logged in until an hour of inactivity has been reached, not when I go into Google Docs for a moment. Also, are there ways to increase the size/shape of the text boxes so that you can read all of the words you have written at once? The full screen button doesn’t work. Thanks.
  • Doesn’t work for transfer? 3/5

    By Chipring13
    I go to the transfer tab and it just sends me to the website. Not sure if it’s supposed to redirect me back to the app after logging in on the web but it doesn’t.
  • Nice 5/5

    By Anonymous'$$&,!;&/@,'
    Thank you devs
  • Great app 5/5

    By workout specialist
    Finally there is an app. Very helpful
  • Needs a back button 2/5

    By beemerbeeper0456782
    Every time i open a page for a college in more detail, I cannot get back to the main menu without logging out and signing back in. Even from the College Questions tab to the Writing Supplements tab requires you to log out
  • Not designed for phones 1/5

    By ⛵🚤🚤🚤🚤🚀🚤#⃣
    Just use the website, its the same thing but obviously better
  • Fix please! 4/5

    By Evananderson517
    Good, simple app. One issue I’ve found: When logging in, the app won’t prompt my device to launch an iCloud Keychain request. I therefore have to manually enter my password. Please fix ASAP!
  • Finally! 5/5

    By Sarah @ sj
    This is so exciting to have as a senior and it’s a lot more accesible.
  • Same as Website 4/5

    By TheLogoMaker27
    So it’s virtually the same as the website, which is convenient, except that I would have thought it would keep me signed in after I close out the app. My email and password is super long to type in, so it gets a little tedious having to login every time I visit. Nevertheless, it’s nice to have an app for it instead of having to use an internet browser, and I think the app has a lot of potential.
  • It’s alright 2/5

    By fixurshitdude
    What’s the point if you have to re-enter your password every time you use it? Just gonna keep using it on safari.
  • i wanted to be the first to write a review 5/5

  • I Love It 5/5

    By Lertysert
    I absolutely love the idea and the app. Only complaint is that the arrows don’t render correctly. I’m sure this’ll be fixed in the next update.
