One large flaw lets down this otherwise brilliant app

On the whole the app functions exactly as you would expect and want. Intuitive and fast. Everything for your course in one place. The one Large flaw I refer to is that if you switch to another app Canvas resets itself, it also doesn’t allow for split screen on iPads. This means you can’t make notes or cross check anything online without having to go back to square one when using the app again. If this could be remedied it would be a 5 star app in my opinion.

Great app but one thing could be improved...

This is a really great app because I can access all of my course information on one platform across a lot of my devices. Why I didn’t give it 5 stars though is because even when you leave the app to open another one, the app restarts, as in if you go back to the canvas student app the page you were in will not be present and it will go back to home screen. This is sometimes very frustrating when you want to check the internet for a piece of information then come back to where you left off to find out the app has restarted. Very annoying. Also I would like the aesthetics of the desktop version to be applied on iPad, as right now, the main screen is split into two with a narrower part on the left and a larger on the right giving a preview. I would prefer the desktop design layout on iPad.

Mostly perfect

I really like this app. My only problem is the fact that I cannot view anything on the pages tab of the app which all my modules use. I don’t know what happens on screen because I’m using VoiceOver, but the screen has nothing that speech can detect, therefore, not being able to access any of the lecture material on my iPhone 7 right now. I think it’s a common problem with people using this app to generally be unable to read anything on the pages part. Not sure if I’m putting this in the right place, but it would make using this app so much more worthwhile if users didn’t have to go through a computer to simply glance at the lecture slides.
