Lag city

considering they like to track your every move via check in you’d think they’d at least make an app that doesn’t crash and freeze every time you use it

OK… but annoying in iOS 13

The app is alright… the notorious check-in system works or is doesn't, and sometimes it claims you're too far away while you are in the correct room… whatever.

My issue with the app in iOS 13 is that iLancaster has somehow become the default app to open files downloaded on Safari… and this is extremely frustrating because iLancaster then won't do anything with those files, and I wouldn't want them there anyway as I have other apps I use to store documents (eg Documents 5).

Please fix this, it hinders my work!

Tries to open my downloaded documents, can’t

For absolutely no reason, for any files I download on safari, iLancaster jumps on them when I try to open them, but the app then can’t do anything with them, it won’t open them or allow me to view them. This completely ruins the download feature on iOS, and it means my iPhone is hindered by the requirement of having the iLancaster app on my phone. Extremely frustrating and a real barrier to using the download feature on my iPhone, not just for university stuff but for documents in general that having nothing to do with university.
