Ratings and Reviews
OK - Some frustration
It’s a little clunky. One key challenge is when you are using the chat feature. You enter your text, hit enter and it shifts focus to another area. Doesn’t seem to make sense that focus should move away from the user data entry field for chat. Very frustrating since I think I am typing to send a message and it turns out the focus is not in the chat field. Also, it would be handy to shift some of the items like user info to a pop up from the bottom that would provide more screen real estate for the session.
Zero updates during pandemic!?!?
With schools stubbornly relying on Adobe Connect as the primary distance learning platform, the fact that this app has gotten zero updates for the duration of the pandemic is criminal.
When apps like zoom and meet are releasing updates at a furious pace to add features to meet the demands of this moment, kids on iPads using Adobe connect can’t even view two videos live at the same time. The poor audio/video quality (10fps best), the clunky 1990’s user interface, and again, not being able to see more than one tile live at the same time (and needing to manually tap other tiles to see other speakers live) are just a few of the reasons this app deserves no stars. These are all table stakes features that literally any other video platform on the market easily covers.
Yes Adobe has made incredibly modest improvements to the desktop app, but they must know children frequently must use mobile devices as a more durable, portable, cheaper, and easier to use alternative to their parents laptops. That they would continue taking money from school systems during the pandemic and leave this app and the students who rely on it to waste is unconscionable.
Does not function properly at all
Watching webinar recordings on playback is not supported on the app. But even watching on a desktop is frustrating because whenever you pause the video, pressing start again causes a 3 second delay, so you miss what the person was saying for that amount of time. And since there is no 10 or 30 second rewind or fast forward option, you end of sliding the time bar too far behind or too far forward, which is extremely time consuming and having to keep relistening to what you already heard, or fiddling with it to find your space again. For me to take notes on an hour long webinar, it ends up taking like 3 hours just because of this tedious process. So what i started doing is recording the voice on my phone’s voice memo, so that way I can pause, rewind, fast forward with ease.
But how silly is that?! Adobe needs to get their act together and create a fully functional webinar software!!
