Ratings and Reviews
Useful For Bus Stops
The app is very jumpy; it’s not smooth at all. It does work for the bus stops and their routes which is primarily what I use it for. I tried using it to access Athena and ELC but it doesn’t remember my ID which makes it a hassle to use. Every time I login it links me to the login, then my settings that say they’ll remember my ID when I login. If this feature worked, I might use the app a lot more.
Bring back the old design! New update STILL horrible with one handed use
The new folder based design is horrible for one handed use. While the recently used folder brings some features down the screen for better one handed reach ability, the old design I can just tap the bus icon at the bottom and I don’t have to stretch my finger and I can track the bus. Now, I have to stretch my finger all the way to the top of the screen, horrible for one handed use. If you pin your favorites, it goes even further up the screen making it impossible to use this app one handed. Horrible app design! They need to conduct user experience research before pushing new app designs. Bring back the bottom navigation at least please!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for taking time to review the UGA mobile app! We have heard your request and are happy to report that we are currently working on a design that will combat the inconvenience of having to reach up and down the screen. Until the new features make their way into production, here is something you can do to minimize the amount of one-handed reach needed to interact with your favorites: We have created a tile titled, "Recently Used." Here is where it saves the top 8 most recently used tiles. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to what you have to say when we push future updates!

App doesn’t work, doesn’t help that websites don’t either.
You are supposed to be able to use the app to access the health center, registration, the online learning service, etc. none of these things are very stable on the computer, so when the app does decide to work, they still don’t load correctly or at all. That’s fine though - chances are the app will crash or misdirect you before you get to try whatever you wanted to use. How frustrating when we are increasingly expected to be able to access these services 24/7 and the tools to access them don’t work 99% of the time.
