Needs to connect to Canvas app.

This app is a fine idea and I know it’s still in it’s Beta trial, but one major flaw is that any link to canvas directs you to the canvas website and not the app. The website is way less user friendly. If IU Boost could be intertwined with the Canvas application in the future, it’d be much better.

Thank you for your helpful feedback; the app was recently updated (version 2.1.0) to deep link to the Canvas Student app if the app is installed on your iOS device. Enjoy!

Easier than using canvas by itself

My school started using this, the reminders right before my assignments are due are really helpful

Doesn’t log in on canvas

Disappointed... I couldn’t even log in on Canvas when I first opened the app. It would give me an error and wouldn’t connect to my school LMS and my account. There was no even a chance for me to try this app for my actual classes :(

Hi naknabel,

We're so sorry you weren't able to use Boost as intended. Please note that at this time Boost only integrates with Canvas if your school or university has activated Boost. If your school hasn't worked with us to get Boost switched on yet for their Canvas instance, then you unfortunately won't be able to access the app.

Can you let me know which school or university you're attending so I can take a closer look at this?

If your school hasn't yet activated Boost, I'd encourage you to reach out to your LMS Administrator or a member of the IT staff and have them contact us at so we can get them set up and running with Boost ASAP.

Thanks so much!
