Pulse is such an amazing app and I wanted to take the time to let everyone know just how great it is! I’m a student at Southern New Hampshire University (which uses Bright Space) studying business with a concentration in entrepreneurship and staying on top of my work while I’m on the go has been made so easy with this app! I always have my phone with me and whenever I need to check in on my assignments whether it’s reviewing grades for previous submissions, rubrics for upcoming essays or even accessing digital books, databases and quizzes, this is the app that has helped me stay on top of everything that I need to get done. My favorite part is that I’ve even been able to take part in all of my discussions with the other students while I’m away from the desk at my home office or the library here in town. No matter what, Pulse has kept me going and it’s gotten even better over the past two years that I’ve had it with me in my pocket with constant updates I don’t even realize are necessary until the changes the developers have made are noticeably helping my system stay optimized each and every term! I’m very appreciative for this app for the fact that I would have otherwise not been able to be as connected and studious as I have been! Thanks to the team that keeps this app alive!

Good in theory...
It would be good if it worked. I got it to work once or twice and it was great. However, in total, I haven’t just used it once or twice; I’ve used it many more times and I’ve consistently had the “A Little Hiccup... The Internet is being fussy right now. Let’s try again?” error message pop up and despite refreshing and reconnecting to my network (even going to cellular data instead of Wi-Fi) I keep getting that message. Maybe it’s just my school’s security or something... but then this app should verify be able to bypass that security via a sign-in or other means.
In conclusion, if the app worked, it would be great since I wouldn’t have to go to my school’s website page every time and sign in. But it doesn’t work. Don’t get me wrong I was hoping it would work—work like everyone else’s reviews, it seems—but alas. No such luck. My experience: 1/5. Because that’s about how many times it seems to work.
UPDATE: Even after updating, this “hiccup”/“fetch” problem still persists.

App badly needs modernized
This application is extremely bare-boned and not user friendly. I cannot fathom how universities so focused on Technology degrees, such as SNHU, even consider this platform a viable option for conducting class work. A prime example of this, is that you cannot use the Pulse Brightspace app in landscape mode when on iPad. This should have been implemented for such a widely used student hardware component. Not to mention the poor load times for certain resources. The only good thing about this app is that I can see my classwork and schedule in a consolidated location- I can do that online too (and without craning my neck sideways to see everything). Think I’ll just use a web shortcut until this app is brought “up to snuff”.
