Ratings and Reviews
More security features needed
I’d like to add my phone number so I can log in to the app with that, get text alerts about my time at the store and have calls and texts for two-factor authentication, for added security, along with the Google and Microsoft Authenticator apps on my iPhone 6s. And, logging into Facebook, Google, Microsoft Twitter with my store profile would also be a wonderful thing! I would much appreciate an app developer response! I don’t feel safe with the very basic security measures this app uses to protect my Boston College B & N account!
Don’t download this useless app
This app is as useless, broken, and unreliable as the BU Bus system itself. The estimated arrival times for the buses are always wrong.
Most buses don’t even appear on the map! There is also no indication for when a bus will go “Out of Service.” This means that when you finally find a bus that is actually on the map, there is a good chance you’re going to be denied entry to it when it arrives.
You should never, ever rely on this app or the bus system as a way to get to class. Don’t download it, no matter how hard they try to promote it.
Left a lot to be desired
The major and perhaps only feature that is useful is probably the bus tracker. But since the addition of the Fenway route, things are starting to get confusing. Most bus stops will not load estimated time for arrivals, and schedules are plain unreliable.
Have been also waiting for a release that will allow students to access student link, library and so on for many years. And there is nothing.
