Now, everything you love about Constellation is even easier to use on your iOS device. The Constellation App is free to any Ashford student enrolled in an online degree program and to all Ashford online faculty.
HIGHLIGHT WHAT’S IMPORTANT
Use our one-touch highlighting to easily emphasize key points. Many students find that highlighting text helps them to concentrate and enhances their understanding.
Add a quick, one-touch note to write any question or comment that comes to mind. Add a note to respond to what you’ve read and help you remember and better understand the content.
You spend lots of time highlighting and creating notes. Use the Notebook to quickly access them.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
No need to swipe through the text looking for a special section to read. Use the Table of Contents to navigate directly to another chapter or section.
PINCH & ZOOM
Are you used to enlarging text on the device with pinch & zoom? No problem. Use it in Constellation to make reading easy for you.
Looking for a specific topic to discuss in your course, or for a paper you’re writing? Use our handy search feature to quickly locate the material that will help you complete your assignments.
LAST READ SECTION
Have to stop reading to take care of something else? No worries! Constellation for iOS will automatically open to where you left off.
SYNC UP WITH THE WEB
We know you’ll probably use Constellation on the web sometimes, so we made sure to take care of syncing the highlights and notes between the web and your iOS device. All your notes and highlights will be available to you whether you access Constellation on the web or your iOS device.
In order to download or sync your Constellation materials, you must have Wi-Fi or 3G access. Once the material is downloaded, you can access it, regardless of your connection.
Minor service update.
Ratings and ReviewsSee All
The bottom bar is now almost impossible to see the nav icons, which makes it really frustrating to move about the text. You can’t see exactly where to touch to begin a search, and navigating search results is also difficult. It didn’t used to be this hard, so I feel REALLY bad for anyone new to the platform. I know there is a button for that, and I can tap around until I get it right, but if I didn’t know, what would I do? It has also become so difficult to turn pages that if I can’t catch it right the first time, I open the menu to get to the next section. Did I mention how you can’t see the nav icons at the bottom? Right, so THAT is also not as easy as it should be.
For every problem I discover wrong with this app I will deduct a star. My problems right now is this app is so hypersensitive! With the slightest touch words get highlighted and it’s aggravating. I don’t have the greatest of eye sight so I have to zoom in due to the letters being so small. I have to scroll side to side to read the text and due to the app having a swipe feature if I scroll to hard or fast it will either go back a page or go forward a page. When I go back to my page I’ve lost my place! I did online schooling at another school (Penn Foster) and their system was so much better. Easy it didn’t have the swipe feature, highlighting was easy (and had an array of colors), you could underline words or sentences, highlight a word for the definition, and zoom in and out no problems. Their app actually had a good rating unlike any of Ashford apps. Maybe you guys should check out their system and what their doing right.
Can’t read searches
The toolbar on the bottom used to be visible for easy access to table of contents and searching. With the latest update, the bar is white with white or just off white color of icons. This also happens in the search bar, the text is white so it’s not readable. The functions are very important. Please fix them!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
