Ugly, Buggy, and TERRIBLE overall

I have used many apps, but this one is by far the worst I’ve ever seen. The UI is completely horrible, and is one of the worst app UIs I've ever seen. It looks so outdated, so much so that I wouldn’t be surprised if it came right from Windows Mobile. It’s horrendously ugly, clunky, and just old looking overall. It’s not even optimized for newer iPhones, since on my iPhone 11 it shows up in a small box as if it was running on a iPhone 4 screen. This app needs a COMPLETE UI overhaul before I will even consider it.

Also, the app is super buggy. When I open the homepage, the background color flickers constantly, and I can’t even see the text on it, and that’s just one of many bugs.

It also doesn’t have any of the essential features I need. I can’t check my current grades for the current marking period, which is what I use this app for. I would love it if I could export my schedule to my Calendar, because that would make it easier for me to see when my classes are.

Overall, this app is complete garbage. I would literally consider making my own app for this just so I don’t need to use this horrendous app. It’s a complete eyesore, a complete waste of time, and I’m still baffled that my school district chose to use such a horrible system. And this app hasn’t received any major updates in YEARS. How can a company like SunGard put in so little R&D into this? Its unacceptable.

Disappointed

Great concept. Poor execution. My first frustration is not being able to switch students. I only have one of my two children listed and there is no option on my screen to switch, even though it says you should be able to. The dashboard is basic and seems to be user friendly, but it is not. The website version works better than the app, but still does not allow me to access my other student. I wish they would either do some major updates to this, or our district find another app.

Navigation and GUI

Very confusing to use and is NOT adaptive on website version. Why no enhancements in a year? What are all the codes on the report card- no idea on c, s, e, etc. progress report is hard to read. Where is integration to push all assignments to student calendar on iOS as the ones on the app are to hard to read and no alerts. Why the different apps like power school. Can’t believe our district just changed to this app.

With the resources that SunGuard has- you should be embarrassed that you have put no R&D into- where do your license and maintenance revenue value?
