This app is terrible. I appreciate its concept but it’s execution is horrible. I wish I could give more specifics but I’m exhausted and my longer review glitched out and got deleted. It’s horribly unintuitive, bizarrely structured, and wildly overcomplicated. The functionality is not nearly deep enough to warrant such a convoluted structure. Loading different “apps” within it is way too confusing. There are way too many different pages that seemingly serve the same purpose while all being incredibly confusing. It’s load times are astoundingly awful and make it a chore to even navigate. They don’t speed up on faster internet or on simpler pages. Fifteen seconds to load your own profile, containing your name, profile picture, and email, and that’s it. A quarter of a minute. It makes the app feel more like a task than a tool. Also when loading your profile it just shows “()()” and an option to post a comment. Then, when it loads, it doesn’t have that option at all, and obviously the debug text is taking away. Like, come on, programmers. This is insane. There’s so much more, too. So much more. Hire a user experience manager. Come on.
As a university student whose campus requires the use of CampusGroups, I wanted to like this application. I like the functionality of being able to plan out my schedule in advance and see all upcoming events happening on my campus. However, both the mobile and web versions of this application have a convoluted, confusing and overly difficult UI (both for users and administrative functions), not to mention constant bugs and lagginess. If this app were made simpler, cleaner, and smoother, it would feel much more like a useful tool and less like a hassle.
Cannot read posts, notifies you for things you can’t read or can’t find the notification for to dismiss it, constantly have to log in when navigating, slow to load anything... why not just use a web browser it would be faster/easier ... worst app I’ve ever used honestly... totally useless. I also don’t understand how it can have 4.5 stars when you look at the complaints and it’s all 1 star ratings, and the tip 5 star review is very obviously a fake plug...
Terrible user ability. Filtering events by group does not work. Regardless of what combination of filters I select, the events that show are different and non correspond to the selected filtering criteria. The my groups and my events tab have similar issues. My groups should me ALL groups, not just groups I have signed up for and the my events tab shows ALL events, not just events I have signed up for. Terrible user ability.
I have an iOS 15 iPhone 12 Pro. For some reason, every time I try to check my notifications or open the messages/chat tab, my app automatically shuts down/crashes. At first I thought oh, maybe it’s a glitch or something. I deleted and reinstalled the app and this issue continues. Help!
The one complaint I have about this app is that it take absolutely forever to load. I go in to check an event and it takes 5 days, go in to change the notification settings but I can’t because the page won’t load. Super annoying with pages taking so long.
The app crashes no matter what I do. Try to create a post, crash. Try to like a post, crash. Try to comment on a post, crash. Try to edit a post, crash. I had this issue while using ios14 and now still have it with iOS 15. It’s frustrating, I need to use the app to help with a journalism class by finding sources and I can’t. Do. Anything. In. It. Help please! (Have restarted phone, deleted/reinstalled app, cleared phone cache)
This app is extremely slow to load. Like, it takes 20 seconds to load sometimes. Often it decides to break entirely too, so the app has to be restarted to see any events or groups at all. Extremely frustrating experience to try and see everything happening on campus. I wish my college would use a different app.
The app has always been slow to load (everything from loading notifications to loading the events page), now, whenever I try to go to the settings on the notifications page, the entire app crashes. Tried to use the help center to find out how to report the problem, but that was no “help” so I have to write a review instead.
App started crashing since last update 4 days ago. There is no clear ability to report the issue other than through leaving a review. I searched the help page for "app crash" and "not working" with no success, and the apply report and issue page says the developer doesn't allow reporting for this app.
This app is so hard to navigate it is not even funny. The only reason you don’t read more terrible reviews is bc the app is only used by college students who don’t care enough/ have the time to submit a real review. Please at least hold a focus group so one of you can see what its like for people who didn’t create the app to try to use it.
This app sets a new low for functionality, it’s unusable. I’m scrolling down in the feed and it’s scrolling up, by itself. Everything about it is awful. This app is supposed to make it easier for campus communities to talk to each other but it’s so frustrating to use, that I’m sure it creates more divide.
I have tried to log onto this app so much and I have this little pop up that won’t let me click out of it but when I click on it, it takes me to a page that won’t load and I cant get out of it. Now I can’t access my orientation schedule and QR scanner and it’s making me really anxious.
This app has been an absolute disaster from the first day I started using it! I really don’t know (as one other reviewer here has mentioned also) how it has so many five star ratings! I urge the App Store management to check and see if the developer is rigging the reviews because this certainly is not anywhere more than 2 stars!
Has all events but if u look at event and go back it goes all the way back to current date view rather than some future week you may have been looking at. Also the feature to add to iCal used to work. No longer adds to my calendar.
Orientation week at my college and there are a lot of events! But nothing is loading on the app. Even the text I'm typing right now isn't loading. Luckily my keyboard is showing me the last word I typed (autocorrect style). This is SO ANNOYING!
My school issued the students iPads and keyboards, the app doesn’t change it’s orientation so currently I am literally typing this review horizontally while the app presents itself vertically. I am typing with 90 degree angle difference between what I see and what someone using their phone normally would see.
Pros: - easy one stop shop to see events on campus - automatically adds events to outlook calendars Cons: - search function has no filters. will often show events that occurred in the past, or events you are not able to register for - app does not remember what day you were viewing once you click into a specific event. When you click back, it takes you to the current date.
Though this app helps students view upcoming campus events and check in easily, it crashes constantly and d makes you sign in even when you are logged into the app defeating the purpose of efficiency especially during covid
