Fixes a crash when viewing modules on older devices.
Saved my grade and from being dropped out of my class
Ever since starting college in summer of 2015, I have never had an online class before. Needless to say, I have hardly an idea of what to do or how I will go about my class. This brings me to my fear, which sadly had already begun. Since the gmail app hadn't let me add my college email to it, and has yet to do so, i hadn't been able to see my emails until today when I logged onto the computer at school. This is when I saw all of the emails for my class, including the one about the drop date. I quickly signed into canvas and finished all the assignments I could, and from that moment I realized that the online class will be challenging for me because I have a tendency to forget to check online regularly. Thankfully, I went to the App Store where I discovered the canvas app! It has helped me so much since gmail isn't letting me log in. Now I am able to get notifications and reminders from the app!
I despise this app. The only thing that has worked correctly for me is the discussions, and even those are painful to navigate. The grades are completely jacked up. You click on the grade you want to see and it takes you somewhere else completely. I have never been able to see a single grade in this app. For lectures and videos you have to finagle it each time to be able to log in and finally see the material. On top of all of this, it is just cluttered. There are multiple tabs that are basically the same thing, making finding assignments a huge pain. In addition to that, sometimes modules remain locked after they should be open and sometimes assignments don't show up on the to do list and you have to go digging for them. All in all, the app is worthless. If you have no other choice than canvass, use the desktop version. You'll still have a headache, but not quite as big.
Worst app I ever used
The app tends to crash.
It doesn't consider canvas pages dimensions, have a zoom function, or tilt landscape mode.
This leads to huge issues trying to view any document posted to my instructors home page. Since I can only read half of the page. The other half is cut off and you can see the words trail off the side and get cut off. So you cant even read a sentence.
Any time, i send error feed back or note these issues of page dimensions not changing for my phone. I receive an email stating my case has been opened under my subject. Then usually 30 seconds later a notice immediately stating the case has been solved. When I can go back to the error and still see it. Even months later.
This company is just eating money up from colleges and do not care about you.
There are numerous other flaws with this app.
So.... to long to read:
Use your phone's browser. It will work better than this app 100% of the time.
