Within the app, you'll be able to manage your app settings and view a history of the notifications you've received. Teachers are able to send notifications to their classes from their mobile device.
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

Ratings and Reviews
This app was fine for the first semester when I wanted notifications for my grades in each class. It was nice because when I clicked on the notification it showed me what my average grade was in that class after that assignment. This semester I was getting the notifications but the grade just said null so I figured I had to wait a while for it to fix. 3 months later it still wasn’t fixed so I decided to logout and log back in to see if that helped. Except I couldn’t log back in for the life of me. I checked my password a million times and I had the correct url, it had even saved the information from the time before so I new it was accurate. I deleted the app and redownloaded, restarted my phone and tried so many different things but it kept saying “unknown error.” I don’t know what’s wrong with it but I keep getting notifications for grades but I can’t even see what class it was I when I go in regular aspen I can’t find where that grade came from. Somebody please help me fix this.
I could see this being good if you only have one child, I have grades coming in for 3 children and can’t figure out which grade is for whom right at a glance of the notifications page, that is until you open it. Would it be difficult to add students initials? Color coordinated? Also have a problem where I lose track of where I was being that the previous notification I had just opened didn’t turn a different color when I read the grade,. Maybe you could have it turn a darker shade or even possibly a check mark. Needs some updates but it is a great tool to have at the tip of your fingers.
Good Idea, Terrible Execution.
You are happy to find the app in the store, the login looks legit and takes the schools URL and login credentials. Then you get updated from the school (outside of Aspen) that info is posted on ASPEN… but all you can see is the “Welcome…” notification with options to view the About, Settings and can Logout. I waited a week to see if anything would sync up and nothing. I ended up just logging in via a browser and making a “homepage” link on my phone - so much easier! It’s been 7-8 years since an update (2014?).
I’ll take this is a clear sign as to why this app is not posted anywhere on the school systems sites??
Perhaps there’ll be an update soon with much better overall functionality with the app. It could be a great, useful, informative and up-to-date app too!
