It’s ok

Although this app works it’s not the best. It’s nice that it auto signs out when you clear the app and that it recognizes you fingerprint as a sign in option. But, if you switch apps it and then return without fully closing the app it crashes, which is extremely annoying, especially if you accidentally click the home button.

This is for skyward in general, why do I have to change my password every six months?! Why?! Every other password protected service doesn’t make you switch your password and, most of the time, they have more personal/sensitive information than your grades. I personal could care less if someone else saw my grades, but I get why people wouldn’t like to have their password stolen and people be able to see their grades. But. It should have an option to make it so you didn’t have to change your password every six months.

Tl:dr - it’s buggy, has its problems, but it does what it needs to.

Not good enough for eight years

This app has been in the App Store, available as a platform to check homework and manage school for eight years, and yet it still seems to have problems expected in a relatively new app.
The app is not as navigable as it has the potential to be, and the performance thereof is extremely glitchy. Also, the extra security with that ridiculous passcode is unnecessary. I’ve used apps with much less security to safeguard more private information. It’s not as if I care if people get a glimpse at my straight A’s either. And what’s the major threat with a glitchy school-sponsored app? That someone will hack in and do my homework for me? Sure wouldn’t want that to happen. 🙄
In addition, the app crashes when one switches from app to app, or even accidentally presses the home button. I am almost certain this is an easy fix, considering I have no other apps with this problem.
Looking at the version history, it doesn’t seem like the app developers at skyward have noticed their early-2000s quality graphics or utter dysfunction of their app; they haven’t even reached a second version of the app (despite it desperately needing updates) which goes to show that these developers are not trying hard enough.

So do us all a favor, skyward, and update your app!

An actual honest review

My school uses Skyward for students to use for checking grades, attendance, disciplines, etc. I personally feel like the platform is very good for what it’s intended for. No, the mobile app isn’t as advanced as the desktop version in my opinion, but it still works good. I guess I don’t really have anything else to say since it’s main purpose is simple lol.

Also, pretty much everything said with the app crashing, lagging, etc. is all made up, or it’s a problem that has nothing to do with the app itself. The app “crashing” when you close out of it for a second is because “Background App Refresh” is on in your phone’s settings. And your password having to be reset is your school’s choice, not the app’s. (no I don’t work on the Skyward staff)
