I like the app; it’s reasonably functional and serves a purpose. For one, the map is probably the MVP for the app. It’s a helpful resource for finding location sites on the campus, it will usually give a brief description/history of the specific location, and the address instantly launches google maps. The below tabs are also additional recourse to further connect to One Portal and other campus services.
I feel like the app overall works and serves part of its primary purpose, to keep all information that we students use frequently in one place (canvas, email, campus map, etc...) but I also believe that it could do a better job of making the information easier to access. For instance, I’m having to log into my email 3 times a day because it keeps logging me out. That’s super annoying and even though I clicked “keep me logged in” it still signs me out every time I leave the app. It makes the app a struggle to use by making me sign completely back in before I have access to anything. I also feel that the app layout is nice and I can see everything in front of me when I open it but it could have a more modern feel to it. It seems to need an overall update; it feels old when I’m using it, lagging and just the way everything looks. It’s like using an iPhone 3g when the iPhone X is out. Other than that, it works well and provides all my information to me in one place.
This app is a must have for all OU students! Don’t hesitate to download it, it will keep you up to date with every exciting event on campus! This app includes academic and financial resources as well as additional support for students! Downloading this app cuts out the hassle of having multiple tabs open to pay your bursar, check grades, schedule, etc. Everything you will need is in this single app! I had to take away 2 stars because the app definitely needs fine tuning! Perhaps a way to clear notifications without having to click every individual alert? Boomer!
Tried to get to Nielsen Hall through google maps, short story was I couldn’t find the place, took every winding turn and went around every single building, ended up at Kauffman. Entered Nielsen in the app and took me exactly to the place I wanted! Now if only it could find me locations like Burr park or the southern sand volleyball courts… oh well future updates maybe?
Like the app, and certainly like the premise for the app where you have all your info you need consolidated into one app but it is buggy and the UI needs a lot of work. Not to mention, the Canvas page of the app, which would potentially be my favorite part of the app doesn’t work for any apparent reason. So there’s that.
I have truly enjoyed this semester at OU. My professors have been outstanding, and they created an optimal learning experience for myself and my colleagues. It has been an honor and privilege having this unique and wonderful opportunity to further my education at OU.
I do wish this app was as traversable as the browser version of Canvas. Also, it seems to notify me of messages from Canvas a couple of days after they were sent. I once drove all the way to Norman for a class that had been cancelled, due to this app’s late notification.
Having some issues getting read items to disappear from my notifications. Wish I could mark as read more than ten items at a time. Overall it’s a good app but minor improvements could definitely be made.
Oh I absolutely love my time so far at OU.... I truly love being a student here on campus at norman.... the best!! As a student from Nigeria ... I am absolutely in love with the school and my experience has been nothing short of amazing!! .... boomer!!
This app literally stopped updating last summer. So it doesn’t show the classes I’m signed up for this spring semester, and it doesn’t show the class I signed up for this past fall after dropping one class (which it still shows that I’m enrolled in).
