Use to be good (revised)
But ever since the new look update, it stinks. The app is very limited in functionality to begin with, but it has now gotten (sorry) worse. Any changes you make in skyward on your PC, will not be saved in/to the app. For example (one of many- but I won't waste your time) "schedule (child's) will not be made available until family info is updated." Thank you- but I already did that a couple of weeks ago. That info did not change in the app, as well. Heck, the only changes I've seen is the graphics and interface. Not impressed. I need something that works, not looks different.
*update*- since the school year began, the info change rate has improved some. What you can do with the app is still limited compared to the browser website, but now it shows the students' appropriate schedule for that specific day (our school has 3 classes a day, not six, and they have a specific rotation. That specific rotation can be difficult to remember and follow). It has some good functionality that was not obvious during the summer, so I have re-adjusted my star ratings. This app is far easier to use than canvas.
Doesn't show missing assignments!!
Either I'm blind or it's not on my phone or something but I have to go to google just to see my missing assignments. I got this mobile skyward so I can checked my grades and other stuff faster than you could on the web. I don't like the website one on the phone because the picture is too small and usually doesn't even work and this app works fine except I can't seem to find my missing assignments. I know I have a few so there's no reason it's not on there. If there could be an update strictly for this, not the design, it would be a great help and would be very useful. I would give a way better review if it just had your missing assignments listed.
How am I supposed to rate something that I can't even use?
I share my account with siblings and parents. Recently my mom changed the password because she couldn't remember the old one and didn't bother to just ask me for the old one, and she didn't bother to give me the old one. Skyward locked me out, and I assumed it was because the school year had ended. I tried logging in with my old password- many times. My mom finally told me she changed the password, but now it won't even let me log in with that one because apparently I tried too many times. It's been months and it still won't let me log in. This is just ridiculous. Don't get me started on all the other problems when I was actually able to use it.
