Ratings and Reviews
Tried to fix something that wasn’t broken.
This app was ok. Nothing groundbreaking, but useable. However a few months ago they decided to update it and it’s rendered it useless. Now I will admit they have made it easier to open up documents from Moodle in this new version compared to the previous one. However the main use for the app was to check your timetable on the go, but sadly the timetable has been rendered useless.
The update has absolutely ruined the app😩
Before the update students were able to view the whole week/month of timetables much easier but now the timetable can only be viewed day by day which makes it difficult especially if you want to make plans and have to look through day by day.
Apart from that moodle is connected with the app which is helpful during lessons
All I want is the timetable ☹️
I'm failing to see the point of this app. Why take away the system of being able to sync your timetable to your mobile and view it easily to this system where you can't see at a glance what day you're in or the times of lectures! It's just taking up phone space. Pointless app.
