Screws students over

Never keeps you logged in. Doesn’t save your vehicle info. Glitches when buying a parking permit (and I got a ticket because I thought I purchased a permit, but apparently didn’t? And there’s no way to go back and see past activity). Doesn’t save your payment info. Navigates to blank screens. Doesn’t refresh to show classes once you do log in. Just not reliable at all.

Cougar Courses

I believe this needs to be implemented to use Cougar Courses as an app that allows a better view. It REALLY needs to add push notifications for when assignments are assigned and grades are posted.

This is not an angry review, or an attempt to be a little of the developers of this app. However, without the implementation of cougar courses this app is pretty much useless.

I don't understand how a school that is almost entirely based on viewing and submitting classwork online, doesn't have a dedicated app that links directly into their portal. If California State University San Marco's actually wants this app to be even remotely successful, then they better allocate all resources to implementing some sort of cougar courses feature in the next update for this app. Otherwise, it's really just a big waste of time and resources for everybody involved.
