Looking forward to the day I remove this app.

Prior to my universities switching to Canvas, I haven’t imagined an app would be so bad that removing it from my devices will be part of the graduation celebrations.

No split-screen multitasking. No drag and drop. Notifications lead me to home page instead of messages. And recently the app quits itself every day for my “updated language settings”.

Good and at times to be mentioned, typing off electronic device takes a while for the typing to be updated on the screen. Other than that excellent.

I find the app clunky, the courses are laid out well, but there stupid flaws which would seem easily resolvable, no zoom in making it difficult to read notes on a small screen or to see detail on images.
You can’t change the orientation of the screen to enable sizing up of video footage.
