Ratings and Reviews

Owen ONeill ,

Nothing compared to other Apps!

As a student using this app, it's not very informative and lacks any Data that would be useful. I was told to use this but found it terrible, I ended up using University Compare's app and found that very useful, statistics, reviews as images. Be interesting to see if they bring anything else out.

More please

Great for those that work in HE policy like me when one might need a quick overview of stats.

Perhaps more detailed data sets as in-app purchases? That would be fun.

Won't install if you don't have iOS 6

And no mention of this in the update information. So if you don't want to lose the convenience of Google Maps, or don't want any of the other ijunk in the latest update this is no good. Well done, HESA!
