Ratings and Reviews
It’s alright. Really useful in certain aspects, really annoying in other. Sometimes I rather just open the Penn State websites on chrome or safari instead of on the app, and the notifications keep saying that they’re unread even though I press “mark all as read” every time they show up. Sometimes it feels like the app is just using the website and didn’t change the function for the phone experience (example: the maps). Has a lot of potential and some of it is good but a fair bit wasted
Has an extreme amount of bugs.
When first opening the app, you are greeted with a page full of options that you may need. Many very helpful in your day to day life. But as soon as you click one, the problems start to arise. To start, the messages feature rarely works as it should. The app also has you log in often, but won’t let you auto fill and will sometimes just not log in.
The biggest pet peeve is how none of the icons lead you to that section like you would expect. Most of them open a page of safari in the app. The app renders itself pointless due to how you can do everything faster by a google search. The app needs an extreme amount of bug fixes before it is usable.
Won’t keep me logged in
The main idea behind the app is great and there’s a lot of convenience behind it but, I have to log back into the app every time I relaunch the app. This strips away the convenience that the app initially offers.
Beyond that, the message notifications don’t go away when an item is read and sometimes the tapping on the item doesn’t even register.
Cool app, needs work.
