What's New in Version 3.16.1
Fixes a crash when viewing modules on older devices.
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.
Wish the app was this good when I was a freshman
I first used the Canvas app for the iPhone but it didn't last long since Website was easier to manage, especially before the redesigned update. But now I prefer the app in tablet format. I mainly use the canvas app on my iPad since it's more convenient and has a larger surface than a iPhone. I love the fact that I can sync the canvas calendar to apple's calendar app, connecting all my devices to keep up with upcoming due dates and assignments. Too bad I'm in my last semester before graduating. I wish the app was this good back when I was a freshman in college!
