Ratings and Reviews
Undoubtedly one of the best apps out there. 10/10 would recommend to any Newcastle Uni students. Disclaimer; not useful for non Newcastle Uni students so 10/10 would not recommend to them.
New update 2018
The apps is always lagging, way slower and the design makes me assume developers were trying to make it similar to other universities apps, which doesn’t work at all in instant. Please make a new update to fix this countless problems with program loading pages or simply cancel this update.
Thanks for the feedback Ffhjsb, sorry to hear that you're having problems with the app. Please could you provide more detail on the parts that you are not happy with, e.g. Timetable, Library or Find a PC, by using the 'Help & Feedback' option in the University app so we can identify the issues and fix them where necessary.
Works well, but it's pretty glitchy (registering touches while scrolling). Should make use of more standard iPhone API's so it not only looks better and more consistent with iOS, but works smoother, and loads faster.
Also would it be possible to log in once, keep everything such as timetables in some sort of cache and update if there is an internet connection? Rather than logging in and pulling all info every single time. With an optional logout button (similar to Facebook/Twitter)
