Ratings and Reviews
When I first downloaded the new and ‘improved’ app in September I was not a fan and ended up deleting it as it was too dark, barely worked on the iPhone and was just a mess.
However, I have now had to re-download it due to the old app no longer updating and the updates that have occured have improved the app tremendously!!!! Everything flows quickly, it fits the iPad and phone easily, offering the ability to hide courses so it’s not as cluttered and it looks more aesthetically pleasing than the previous app. Some areas could still be tweaked or made to be personalised, but right now I’d say it’s just as good as the old app.
BRING BACK THE OLD APP!!
I’m absolutely gutted that you didn’t update the old app - it was perfect!
Loading anything in the new app takes an age and sometimes will not load for no reason. I hate the flip-up tab system - a back button would be so much better as then you can quickly go between folders etc. Instead of having to flick each one! Which takes ages and is so annoying as my phone thinks I want to bring down its own menus, not the ones in the app!
I don’t like how you can’t change the order of the courses now - I have upwards of 20 course tabs on there so scrolling right down to the bottom (when the scrolling isn’t fluid/fast and freezes) every time is an absolute nightmare.
There are more annoyances I could say but basically BRING BACK THE OLD APP - This one is terrible!!!
The whole layout of the app isn’t very user friendly, the older app was much more inviting. Also a huge issue which is now getting very irritating is the recaps not being accessible. 9 times out of 10 when I go to check it a re cap has been put on to blackboard or to catch up on something the re cap are hardly ever available! Always says there is some kind of error I’ve refreshed the app before, re-downloaded the app and eve turned my phone off and on makes no difference. It is very unreliable in terms of recap and that is my main use for this app so I’m not happy wit it at the moment.
