Honest Opinion on Skyward. 1/5
This is for sure the downfall of skyward. I have been in a school district that uses skyward my whole life. I have noticed how much worse skyward has gotten recently. It is so much slower and does not corporate with me as well as it use to. It doesn’t even load on the iPad anymore. I get errors left and right, and half of my grade records are gone. I use to like skyward but now this is sad.
It’s time for schools to stop overpaying Skyward for a program that doesn’t even work.

By madii 🤍
I USE IT FOR SCHOOL! it lets me know schedule, grades, attendance, and much more!! you should use this or recommend it for ur school!! love from tiktok 🤍🤍
It locks up faster then what i put 1/5
I put the lock time for 5 minutes yet when i leave it open for a minute it locks me out
Works but with tons of bugs and super behind on new features 3/5
Imagine this you have a house with a roof as leaves. Sure it does the job kinda well and it lets water in but at least theres a roof. This is how the app works. So many bugs, were almost in ios 14 and its slow. Eather fix it or start from the ground up
SO BAD 1/5
By cherry is cooler than y
THERE IS NO ROCK MUSIC ITS SO BAD
An actual honest review 4/5
By Norab Ebuk
My school uses Skyward for students to use for checking grades, attendance, disciplines, etc. I personally feel like the platform is very good for what it’s intended for. No, the mobile app isn’t as advanced as the desktop version in my opinion, but it still works good. I guess I don’t really have anything else to say since it’s main purpose is simple lol.
Also, pretty much everything said with the app crashing, lagging, etc. is all made up, or it’s a problem that has nothing to do with the app itself. The app “crashing” when you close out of it for a second is because “Background App Refresh” is on in your phone’s settings. And your password having to be reset is your school’s choice, not the app’s. (no I don’t work on the Skyward staff)
Umm, it’s not working 3/5
By Nikitha D
Before, Skyward was working great. I could look at my grades and see my schedule and everything. Now, Skyward is not working. Whenever I go onto the app, it doesn’t load and just shows me a white screen. I even tried to delete and redo load the app, but its still not working. Does anyone know why this might be happening?
By Epic great cool
Very laggy 1/5
This app needs to be updated with many major fixes. Has a lot of bugs; crashes multiple times.
Too slow and laggy 1/5
It is so slow
This app is horrible because it shows my grades, like who does that??
Class list 4/5
You should be able to see who is in your class
Fix Skyward app 1/5
The Skyward app has been barely usable for years now. Parents really need it to work right now with schools not opening and everything else going on. I have never had a app give me so much trouble just to login even after I set it up for finger print recognition only. Also the option to use mobile works a little better than desktop as far as user friendly and logging in, but it doesn’t have all the options like parent teach conference times like the desktop does. Please fix these issues
Disappointed, unsatisfied, angry. 1/5
By Skyward is awful
It’s very common to have to use this app to check your child’s grades and see their schedule, but it’s nearly impossible to do any of that because of the app and websites buggy nature! Anytime I use it on the laptop, it says I have to “install a selection”. I have tried many times, but it STILL WON’T WORK. As for the app, it’s EXTREMELY slow. If the developer could manage to make the app faster then MAYBE it would be 3 stars. But until then, 1 star. If I could do zero stars, then I would!
It’s a good app 4/5
By Gabsters v
This app really helps me manage my grades and keep up with my work I haven’t had any bad experiences yet so I like it
It freezes most of the time when I try to get the app running or click on something forcing me to log out of app.
Won’t download 1/5
Internet is fine but ap just won’t download at all.
It never works
Poorly made 1/5

HUGE PROBLEM 1/5
By tingly nips
It causes my mom to hit me
The worst 😟
This app is so annoying 1/5
By puppy unicorn 🐶🦄
I mean after I read the reviews I realized how people feel this app I have to have for school so it’s more annoying I can’t log back in and when I do there is nothing on my screen and every time I stay still for five seconds it freezes I have to log back out and get back in I hope this app can be updated soon
Not good at all not good
Just kinda out of date 1/5
By The Ghost Hacker
I mean sure but idk why my school district still use this. I really wonder if the company even updates this anymore. I mean at least give it some design like Canvas or make its coding algorithm better so that it goes faster? I mean I just don’t really like it. But still, it does what it needs to do to show grades and stuff and plus I have to use it so, hope this is relatable.
it won’t let me check my classes lol
Very bad 1/5
It’s great 5/5
Found my schedule thank god
Not good enough for eight years 2/5
This app has been in the App Store, available as a platform to check homework and manage school for eight years, and yet it still seems to have problems expected in a relatively new app.
The app is not as navigable as it has the potential to be, and the performance thereof is extremely glitchy. Also, the extra security with that ridiculous passcode is unnecessary. I’ve used apps with much less security to safeguard more private information. It’s not as if I care if people get a glimpse at my straight A’s either. And what’s the major threat with a glitchy school-sponsored app? That someone will hack in and do my homework for me? Sure wouldn’t want that to happen. 🙄
In addition, the app crashes when one switches from app to app, or even accidentally presses the home button. I am almost certain this is an easy fix, considering I have no other apps with this problem.
Looking at the version history, it doesn’t seem like the app developers at skyward have noticed their early-2000s quality graphics or utter dysfunction of their app; they haven’t even reached a second version of the app (despite it desperately needing updates) which goes to show that these developers are not trying hard enough.
So do us all a favor, skyward, and update your app!
Foul Odor 1/5
By Adam Eoff
It is rather smelly.
This app will not stop making my parents hurt me

It’s bad 1/5
By Mr GenZ
Couldn’t login 3/5
By hahaha...... hey
When I tried to log into it, it wouldn’t let me. I know my school district and password and username but it says “description” and I don’t know what that mean.
Room for improvement 2/5
Although the layout of skyward is workable it hasn’t changed in a while. It would be great if the grade layout was modernized and maybe implementation of a dark mode would be wonderful.
Hate it 1/5
Can not log in and doesn’t explain what to do 1/5
I got this app today and I tried logging in. When the app makes you log in it does not tell you what to enter. I entered my ID number and password that I know is 100% correct, it said it was incorrect. The second time I tried I entered my E-Mail as you would on the computer and it said “You have entered your password too many times.” It was my second time! After that I deleted the app and reinstalled it. The First time I entered my username and password it said “You have entered your password too many times.” That was my First time entering.
ezz what eezz 4/5
By cryinqboca on insta YEET
tbh they need to update the app and simplify it, not only for students but for the boomers that use this app. and there are so many glitches 😐 i mean it works ig- but like give da homie a update 😔💔💔
The app is poorly formatted
Unable to use 1/5
I have account and use on computer, but the app will not locate my school district and I tried every way possible.

Logged me out 1/5
By brianna vicars
I went to check my new class schedule for the 2020 school year and it logged me out and no matter how many times I try to log back in it says there is a verification issue and I have no Idea how to fix it. It worked fine for me all last school year and now that I actually need it for online classes it doesn’t work.
