I’ll give this app 5 stars. It’s good for returning students for grad programs like myself. Information passed through others through the app is great. I can communicate to other veterans with the same issues that I have and get answers faster. I only wish I can access my student email from this app but maybe I just haven’t figured that part out yet.
I like the idea of having an app where all my school information is available, rather than constantly having to log into different websites. The app looks nice and is fairly easy to navigate. However, it takes forever to load! It can take a a few minutes sometimes to just view my grades. By that time, I can open up safari and log on to blackboard myself. Also it is impossible to clear notifications... I always have them! I want to know when grades are posted or when an assignment is due but I also don’t want 50 notifications on my phone! But like I said, everything takes so long to load that there’s no way I’ll be able to go through them all. Anyways, overall a great idea but I wish it worked a little better and faster.
I run my own cleaning company and posted on the buy/sell/trade thread around 7a this morning. I already have people commenting wanting to book or referring me to friends and family and the post hasn’t even been up for 24 hours! It’s nice to see students supporting students! It also keeps me on track for different homework deadlines and lets me know when things are due! I couldn’t be happier!!
I like it because you are able to communicate with your UTSA community about anything. Need a textbook? Go to this app. Need a to lease an apartment? Go to this app. Need any recommendations on professors or classes? Once again, go to this app. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this app. If you are thinking about downloading this? Don’t hesitate and do it! It will worth your time.
It’s nice to be able to easily navigate through and view my class assignments, grades etc. and get notifications when grades post or new assignments are posted but the app doesn’t sync across multiple devices. I use the app on my phone and iPad (the iPad is used solely for school) and am constantly having to clear notifications from one device that I’ve already viewed on the other device. It’s super annoying and seems an easy fix. I’d give the app 5/5 otherwise.
It wasn’t reloading to current date, and when I signed out of the app it ended up not showing anything at all (nothing in feeds, no courses,etc.). I tried resetting the apps multiple times (including deleting the app) and it didn’t do anything still. I reset my phone roughly 4 times and the app was still not showing anything. My iphone is already updated with the IOS 12 and wasn’t a problem before until now. **Please help with the problem...I need to see when I have assignments and when they are due.**
I like how I can talk to other students and it even shows me my assignments linked to blackboard which is awesome. It’s really good for cheap textbooks too that are usually expensive. If u need a quick buck, it’s good for advertisements about stuff u need to sell too.
It’s a good idea for an app to have almost everything you need in one app, but the organization of this one is just not good. You will get 100 and more notifications to click through but the app is not smooth at all, and you have to sign in constantly. The app would improve if you just had to log in once on the device like gmail. The calendar syncing feature is cool though.
The app worked well enough (it wasn’t great but it at least worked) at the start of the fall semester last year but once the big new updates started happening the app has become completely useless except to let me know of all the hundreds of notifications I have but cannot check. I’ve tried resetting the app and all that but now instead of an error message when I click on anything I get a red block that just says [[null]]... can’t even login now.
A lot of information and alerts this app has but lacks importan information that a new user or student needs like college acceptance, recommended courses based on your major or even simple next steps needed depending on your application status. Like I said all the resources are there but just need to refocus them.
Its annoying to have to sign back in every time ive left the app. And if its an issue with security then why not utilize the phones built in lock systems like face id or touch id etc etc If i HAVE to be signed out every time id at least like the option to sign back in with something other than my 15+ character password
Great App, But it’s Diminished by the Social Section.
This app provides a lot of resources but those resources are dwarfed by Facebook styled social disorder network it uses. Constant alert and posts that relate to the emotional fragility of what’s considered an adult now. Honestly I would spend more time exploring this app if it wasn’t dwarfed by the shadow of so many obnoxious posts.
Before the new update for worst, we were able to link or course calendar to our iPhone ios calendar which I think was the best aspect of the app in the first place. Now with the new update there is no where to do that ! Can you guys please update the app where we can link our course calendar to our own iOS calendar .. cut me a break
I lot into the app and immediately afterwards it says “you have been logged out please log back in” and it keeps doing the same thing! This isnt the first time although the first time it fixed itself after a few days. Please fix this! Ive made sure to keep up with the updates for this app.
This app is all over the place. You will always have notifications from the app, it is impossible to get rid of them. It’s extremely slow 70% of the time. Should take a note from the canvas app and duplicate that because this is a disaster.
I like the idea of this app however, the app never works. Soon as I log in the app immediately logs me out. UTSA consistently is having technical issues. If it’s not their app it’s their website. C’mon UTSA lets get it together.
Used to be great but this semester, sp 19, it stopped working and crashes every time you log in. It signs you out before it even takes you to the homepage. Not sure what happened to it, it used to work with no issues.
