What's New in Version 1.2.1
iPhone5 support and bug fixes
I had a bad experience with this app, and several attempts at dealing with customer support were futile. I accidentally entered the wrong email address upon launching this app. Unfortunately, it is completely impossible to change it. The app has "already been launched," and as a result the mobile passcode will only be re-sent to a nonexistent account. While it's sort of my own fault for messing up at the beginning, friends at my school have had similar issues. Since my school changed our email addresses this past year, it is again impossible to access the mobile passcode even if the correct Naviance address is entered. In my eyes the whole startup/login process is faulty and deserves to be revamped, and Naviance should in general put more effort in to their services (I contacted just about every branch of the company, yet everything went unanswered).
NOT USEFUL AT ALL
Not even close to how amazing the website is. This hardly even gives you the names of the colleges- they get cut off. Some of them do not listen location, there is no way to filter, there are no pictures, and there is no information on the school (like SAT scores) besides the school being "private" or "public.". So if you want to know whether the status of a school is private or public, then download this app and have a blast. Otherwise, the space it takes up on your phone is NOT worth it. It does not do anything. It is not even synced with the website - none of the colleges on "my colleges list" do not show up etc. It does not show your information like SAT score or GPA. It does not even have your counselor's email. Really really horrible - why did they bother?
I Wish I Got This Sooner
I've already sent in all of my applications, and I wish I would have downloaded this app a bit earlier. It's really easy to search colleges and see their stats right there along with deadlines and the ability to update your admission decision right there. The tasks feature seems so helpful too because they can send push notifications so you'll always be on top of things! I love it!
