Needs an update
The app itself is laid out fairly well there are a just a few things I would change/add to make this a 5 star app. First of all it tends to crash quite a lot which can be extremely annoying as it's very difficult to find the same thread you were reading. This leads on to my second point which would be the introduction of a search bar so we could quickly search through threads for a specific thing as well as just browsing. Finally a really good feature would be a save button so we could save threads to keep looking back at and maybe get notifications when new comments have been posted there. In all the student room is a great community though and I hope they make these improvements to the app as then it would definitely be a 5* app!
Good app, if it wasn't for the crashing
I downloaded this app back in August, and whilst it has been insightful and useful for keeping track in university life and other students who are applying to get in. I have learned quite a few things from this website.
However, the app itself is full of adverts which, I believe, are the reason my app continues to crash. It is the updated version, however it will crash a page 3 or 4 times and, if I have not had time to set it as watched, it's sometimes difficult to find and continue reading. There are also a number of immature posts, however that can be expected from a school-aged and related forum.
Overall it's a good app, the only thing I'd change is the constant crashing.
Great app but needs an update
The title says it all really this is an amazingly helpful app that has already helped me find some flat mates (for Derby uni 2015) months before I'm due to move in! It's a brilliant app if there absolutely anything you need to know that another student may know the answer to! I would highly recommend it!
However the app is in desperate need of an update, it's very slow and crashes frequently. Also I think notifications would be very helpful, I have to frequently check the app to see if there is any replies to discussions I have participated in, so I feel notifications would be a massive asset to the app.
