Ratings and Reviews
Same as Website
So it’s virtually the same as the website, which is convenient, except that I would have thought it would keep me signed in after I close out the app. My email and password is super long to type in, so it gets a little tedious having to login every time I visit. Nevertheless, it’s nice to have an app for it instead of having to use an internet browser, and I think the app has a lot of potential.
Thank you for FINALLY making an app for the Common App. This literally helps a lot of us out who are doing this on the go. Obviously, the Common App is something millions of students already use for their college applications, so this review won’t really be geared toward the platform in general, but more towards the actual app performance. Now, this app is just starting out but I do believe there are some issues that need to be resolved before I can give this a higher rating. I shouldn’t have to login every time I leave the app to switch to another one. This is my phone after all, other folks aren’t going to be accessing it. At the very least, keep us logged in until an hour of inactivity has been reached, not when I go into Google Docs for a moment. Also, are there ways to increase the size/shape of the text boxes so that you can read all of the words you have written at once? The full screen button doesn’t work. Thanks.
So far, so good
Too bad they didn’t launch the app earlier this fall because I think this would’ve been much easier for me to just use an app rather than having to login into a computer, and I’ve already submitted all my applications, so I don’t really need the app. I still downloaded it just bc I was curious and I’m really impressed. It's not glitchy at all. It looks exactly the same as the website, which is already convenient and organized itself. It's also fast in opening PDFs or external links. 5 stars!!!
