Might Not Use It
Seems like a great app with great potential. It'd just be nice if I could narrow down my newsfeed to just show people in the same degree path as me (or if there's a way it'd be easier to find cause I've tried). I'm attending a large online school and after scrolling for about 3 mins I was still seeing posts that weren't even a minute old and none of them were even in the same field as me. Meet ups are the same, there's no way I'm scrolling through pages of meet ups for places like Dallas that aren't even close to my field. So while I was excited about it, it just seems like more of a hassle than anything.
good idea, poor execution
this app has some really good things and some flaws. first, i love how you can connect directly to staff at your school. however, notifications don't always work and sometimes ill get a message somebody sent me a few days ago late. i also like the many different ways you can narrow down your search. but, sometimes the app literally doesn't work. i get error messages all the time, and i have to delete the app and redownload it for it to go away. i also don't like that you have to connect to facebook, as not everyone has a facebook anymore. one thing i think the app could benefit from is a huge update, as this hasnt been updated in 7 months. in the update i think you should fix bugs, get rid of the facebook thing or at least add more options like twitter, insta, google, and finally, add a quiz that can help you narrow down your results that would include something like room temp, sexuality, political stance, etc.
Good idea, bad execution
I like the thought behind this, but there are a few things that really need upgrading. First, notifications don't work for me. The only way I've found is to have them email me when I get a private message, or comments on a post. Second, way too often does it crash and come up with a message saying "Schools app error" This should not happen as it drastically lowers the usability. Finally, add a block feature, or mute. If someone I'm not interested in talking to keeps messaging me, I shouldn't have to put up with it. Fix these, and it'll be wonderful
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
