Remarkable app, holding a spot on my homescreen and outside of folders on iPhone OS 4 Beta 4. Has 4 stars for now only because I believe it's missing a vital tool to all students and even faculty, Blackboard integration. Aside from that, push notifications for FSU ALERTs would be a nice addition as well. FSU's current mobile text solution is much slower if not less efficient than the current twitter feed for these alerts. Overall though, amazing and you can't beat the price!
This app is so bad it makes you want to scream. I feel like we all need a class in how to use it - or at least go over it better at orientation. It is not user friendly, has no ability to “search” and feels like you are just going in circles to find even the most basic information. We basically gave up using it and now just login on the computer. It needs an overhaul!
Any academic enterprise in the year 2023 has at least 1000 students who can build a useful app. With over 40k students at FSU I would think at least one could build a better app than the junk heap. Do this thing have a purpose other than wasting someone’s time? Come on FSU, give one of your computer science students or classes a project to create an app to be proud of, this is a debacle.
Turned it from a decent app that let you access multiple services easily to a glorified browser that opens the much-less-useful-on-mobile full myfsu website. If I wanted that, I’d use my browser. The “my menu customization” is completely broken.
I have been a student at FSU for 5 years. I got my Bachelors degree here and now I'm working on my Masters here. This the BEST thing FSU has come up with since I've been a student here. It's easy to navigate and has all the information about campus that you could need. This would be really great for anyone who is unfamiliar with FSU's campus such as incoming freshman, parents, transfer students, foreign students, etc. I highly recommend this App. Good job FSU!!! Now if only they could get blackboard to run this smoothly..... Lol
Must Have for a Nole Even Tho There are Still Bugs
I love this app and i find myself using it almost everyday. It's great to find out what is open on campus like dining areas and the library especially when the holidays come up and the hours for everything starts at odd hours. Cant wait til they add the tracking bus option here. then this will be the best app ever!
The directory function works well. The Campus Building locator is essentially useless--the buildings are not in alphabetical order so you might need to scroll through hundreds of entries to find the building for which you are looking. The calendar function does not seem to provide a true academic calendar (which lists the first and last day of classes, holidays, add-drop deadlines on a single page). You can see events and deadlines only for the specific day you are viewing. The campus map can be viewed only in portrait orientation whereas landscape would be more useful.
Great features. Please consider enhancement to the map to include route from one building/location on campus to another with option for walking or driving route. Also to locate nearest parking to a building and option to limit based on student/faculty/white/etc parking allowed. Thanks!
This is a great app for keeping up with all things FSU. I especially like the GPS powered map and the calendar features. It's also much better for athletics info than the Seminoles Mobile app from CBS Sports is, and unlike that app this one is also FREE. The app's design is pretty slick too.
... I agree with another poster. The building list should be in alphabetical order (the current order is numerical from the physical map). And a basic academic calendar by term would be very useful. Otherwise, pretty sweet app.
It's easy to tell that this application has had some major time and effort put into it. There are tons of well thought out features to really get the most out of the FSU experience. Thank you for making this free!!!
It's a pretty good app fsu. I think the blackboard component could be better though. Perhaps adding the ability to view assignments and such. Also, improve the maps. Add some items such as vending machines and buildings by prefix. Also, make the map available in satellite images. Reality adds 100x more detail than virtually drawn maps.
This is great. Everyone who is interested in FSU will find useful information no matter where they live. Those that are in Tallahassee, however, will find some great features that complement campus life.
Poor specific database. Poor Sports app and fair Bb app
Everyone has to go to the real Seminoles website to get information on rosters, in game reports, post game reports, player bios, etc. Blackboard needs a way to access schedules, webmail and other secure apps details. It is possible to find licensing and security from the university to do this. I use this app only to look up class info, otherwise it is pretty useless to me.
Aside from the maps feature which is helpful for a new student, I have never opened this app and had it help me do anything. The calendar is terrible and difficult to navigate to find anything you are looking for. Even something as simple as FA Disbursement. BB works on this about as well as it works in general, which means it doesn't work well at all. Useless and has since been deleted.
Map app works pretty well. Very useful for new students. Wish there was a GPS navigation feature. Dining hours are completely off. Says something is open when it's really closed and vise versa. Blackboard works 50% of the time.
This app when works has everything you need for school! However for awhile now it hasn't been letting me login to my classes saying a login failure. Pretty annoying! I'm about to delete it if it doesn't get fixed soon!!!!
Loved the app and used it all the time for Blackboard access, but now it just says "login failed, can't connect to your school right now, try again later". Tried uninstalling/reinstalling - negative fix. Please fix this ASAP!
Find out what’s happening on campus! Florida State University’s official mobile app gives you access to the latest campus news and events as well as athletics updates, real-time bus tracking, campus maps, library hours, dining locations, laundry timers and much more. Students can even keep up with their classes via Blackboard Mobile™ Learn or contact faculty members using the campus directory.
