Needs public safety access

Would be useful to have public safety access numbers at front page level

Great and getting better!

There are so many pieces to this app, many of which merit 5 stars. The UW directory allows Eau rollover into my iOS contacts. While I have the choice of several Metro bus apps, this one is the best, providing real-time information with the easiest user interface. The MyUW and Canvas both provide the vital gateways to all UW classes and information. I could go on, but you get the idea; an essential app for anybody in the UW community.

BTW, when I’ve encountered bugs, somebody from support actually responds and fixes it.

Hijacks your phone

I accidentally hit this app, which I had already downloaded long ago.
Immediately questions about location and notifications came up, and I didn’t want to answer any of them, since I hit the app by accident.
The pop-up questions hijacked my phone and I couldn’t do anything (get out of the app or even do a hard shut down) until I answered the questions.
I hate apps that do this and I don’t tolerate it.
App deleted.
