Ratings and Reviews
Piazza is great, but this app is not.
Piazza is a fantastic resource in all of my classes, but I have been disappointed by the mobile app. Instructor answers to follow up questions are not highlighted, the editor for creating a new question/ responding to a question is very clunky and lacks nearly all of the formatting options provided on desktop, and the overarching interface feels more like a half-baked mobile website than a dedicated app. Really hoping this is updated and improved at some point.
Room for improvement
The app works, but it has a long way to go. For one, I can’t print PDF files attached to posts. Instead, I have to long-press and copy the link in order to paste in Safari and print from there. This is unnecessarily complicated – just about every other app lets you print files as long as they can open.
The handling of images is garbage
There’s a lot good about Piazza, but the terrible image issues in this app mean more often than not, I have to use the web version on my iPad or just go view things on my Mac. It would be very simple for them to add the ability to tap on an image and view it full screen (with the ability to pinch zoom). The fact that they haven’t added this over the many, many months that this app has been out makes it feel abandoned.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
