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!

Pulse is great

I never miss uploaded work or grade posted from school. As a college student pulse is a life saver. Some people have so much going on in life especially when you have kids, husband, and daily activities you don’t always log into your school portal you really forget!!!!! Thank God for pulse It let’s me know when I need to log in, what has been uploaded from my instructors, and my grades. It contributes to me being a successful student andddddd it’s free. You don’t always have money for some of the things you need for school. So during the pandemic I have had to stop working, purchase tons of things for school that I REALLY NEEDED. So life is going is so many different directions and pulse is a blessing to me I tell everyone about it . I am soooo grateful to the creator of pulse . You been one of my go to apps for two years and counting. Thank you so much for being free . College students NEED and LOVE this pulse app..

It’s an alright app, but...

I’m a student at Loyola Marymount University and we use BrightSpace for all of our courses. I was thrilled to hear that there was an app for my phone or iPad that I could use to keep up with my assignments. Now, having used this app for TWO AND A HALF YEARS, I can say that it is a decent app and does most of what it should do, but it’s basically just a portal for Safari in a different app. To view any course announcements or to be able to download any files while on the app, you have to open the course homepage which opens a pop-up safari window. This just makes the app messy, and every time I open the homepage within the app, I just wonder why I don’t use the normal webpage on Safari instead because it’s the same thing. It’d be AMAZING if the app was all in one and didn’t have to open safari to show half of the course’s content and the announcements. Schoology, which I used all throughout high school, does this very well in their mobile apps and their webpage and I would love for the developers to take a look at that and see how far behind their app is in terms of usability and other productivity apps out there in 2020. If your professors make a lot of announcements and require you to check on them daily, just use BrightSpace in a web browser and don’t even bother with this app until it gets updated to be all inclusive.
