    Not great but it's required for my classes. I do not recieve notifications until a few days after the fact. The Activity Stream doesn't show the correct dates. Honestly, if we had the option to switch platforms, I would do so in a heartbeat. The "update" claimed to fix minor bugs but doesn't seem to have fixed anything at all.

    It's an ok app, but there are a a lot of errors. Some files can't be accessed. Reflection can only be accessed through the website. My answers sometimes disappears when I pass them, and sometimes they don't register. Even when I passed on time, it still says overdue. Sometimes, the scores are 0 even when all answers are correct. Another problem is that, there are frequent shut downs.

    Blackboard is something that I'm required to use for classes, and the desktop website is perfectly fine for the most part. The app on the other hand is riddled with numerous problems that generally make the app either impossible to use or pointless. Right now for instance, no matter how I try I can't open the app. It simply begins to open for half a second and then immediately returns to the home screen. Please fix this app, it'd be nice to look @ my grades when I'm not around my computer.

    Nice tool to keep up with your duties and to be updated in case of announcements. I would like to see the due dates/ calendar to be clearer. I can see only the week, and tasks of a selected day. it is necessary to scroll through the weeks to have an idea of your timmings or amount of tasks that are yet to come. I would also like to see a way to link this calendar with my Google phone calendar. Is there a way to do it? Last point, we should be able to open hyperlinks.

    I use this application multiple times per day on my phone, tablet and the website version on my laptop. It is a critical component of my post secondary education. It keeps me informed, organized and coordinated while taking 5 courses with different associated lab, lecture and seminar professors. Excellent solution to a complex system and process. Thanks.

    Its frustrating and annoying to use, the blackboard collaborate does not work in the app for me and I have to access it through the website. Sometimes I can't submit my assignments for some reason and I don't know that until the teacher contacts me. It took me a whole month to figure out how to change my profile picture, turns out it was because I didnt toggle my display option, which is only on the website and not the app itself. This doenst work very well as an app.

  7. Bree-avatar



    I'm required to use this for my school. The app is just terrible though, many bugs and glitches that need to be fixed. Even on my computer though, this website doesn't work for me at times. The worst part being the service. They tell me it's something I have to solve with my "professor" if a homework I submit doesn't go through. But that's their fault! If the app and website can't do the only thing they're supposed to do and the service doesn't help you at all, it just pisses you off

    Somehow, the app is fine. However, we experienced connection issues in the website. We're always having a hard time to reconnect. Instead, we are having a smooth discussion, most of our classmates, including me and our professors, wasting our time in refreshing the website. There's nothing wrong with the internet because the other websites run smoothly except for Blackboard site.

  9. Francis Johnson-avatar

    It will need quite a lot of work in order to reach this app's full potential. The app has relatively simple features(ie opening/closing of tabs and accessing their contents), but it still takes a few seconds to get there no matter the internet speed. 1. The app needs to get optimized HEAVILY to run smoothly. 2. There's this bug that keeps popping up on the "IMPORTANT" notice saying "Join a group to participate" when there are no groups sets in those group tabs. 3. Some files are inaccessible.

  10. Vikaash-avatar



    Sorry devs, it's not really worthy app at all. Lags a lot, my exams mark were cut due to this app's slow loading rate and it wasn't that my network was the problem. All my classmates had similar problems, and I tried using various speeds of networks. Even worse, then video streaming is based on Google Chrome, instead of in app. Are the Devs are not pro efficient in JVM based languages? This apk feels totally like a Javascript based app, all I wish is the devs would update it often.

  11. Elegy Garcia-avatar

    Elegy Garcia


    It shows what is needed, but being unable to open Word documents is absurd. Also, the fact that there is NO way to turn off or edit notification preferences unless you log into the web version is really tedious. I keep experiencing a bug where "important alerts" from years ago keep showing up no matter if I dismiss them every time I open the app. Please update soon, more students than ever are online this semester, these issues shouldn't be a thing in a modern education app.

  12. gerard huelar-avatar

    gerard huelar


    As much as I would like to raise my ratings, it truly deserves to be this. Class updates doesn't immediately show up when posted. Announcements are not as real time as it should be. Files such as PDF are not uploading. And many other app mishaps. This kind of errors would affect a student's academics even to the point of failing a course. Please fix this immediately!

  13. Haylie Phipps-avatar

    Haylie Phipps


    The app has been okay overall, but I don't like that it doesn't send push notifications when a professor posts something, you can't view the calendar from the app, and you can't find recorded lectures under the collaborate tab like you can on the website. I would like to be able to listen to older recordings on my phone rather than just the computer

  14. Diana Ochs-avatar

    Diana Ochs


    Ready for the least user friendly app? Well you might have just found it. Good luck trying to download or see any attachment/document. Copy/paste flat out doesn't work, but don't worry, if you accidentally back out of the page, it won't save your work either. But hey, you don't have a choice because your school forced you into this broken app that will crash and require "updates" so you can't access for hours on end. (Hint: use your internet browser, it works better)

  15. bassel []-avatar

    So many problems with this guys need to improve it...i get signed off for no reason at all and yes i did told the app to "remember me".... notifications always pop up late after an hour and sometimes never! Please fix the app...its important to us. Thanks!

  16. Omie-avatar



    1. The app has a significant difference with the web version. 2. In the activity stream, alerts from weeks and even years ago are piled on top EVERY TIME I open the app. These are irrelevant to my course and when I click them, they don't show up. 3. Can't archive these "important alerts". I have to either dismiss EACH irrelevant alert, or scroll to the VERY BOTTOM to see what's new in my course.

  17. Pei-Jhen Wu-avatar

    Pei-Jhen Wu


    I have no idea why my university required us to get us this app because it's really really difficult to use. The notifications never work the way it should be, the app doesn't look pretty, it loads super slow (I have stable internet), so many functions are missing, my profile picture is not showing up during sessions, unable to change view courses.... So many problems.

  18. Daniel Sisneros-avatar

    Daniel Sisneros


    Really terrible app. I'm not having the issues like others are but overall it's just lacking completely from its desktop version. It looks like it's from the 1990s with the way the layout is, when emailing a professor I have absolutely no idea where to even read the email it is overall terrible. The overall very clunky and inconsistent. canvas is an extremely better version of online learning; clean, simple and easy to use, blackboard sucks.

  19. karla sevillano-avatar

    karla sevillano


    So far I have trouble following up the app. I previously used Canvas and I really enjoyed it. Now I am let wondering because the menus are not very helpful, I don't have a to do list that tracks the assignments for the day as well as mark the ones that are already completed. Instead I have all assignments and announcements for the semester cluster where you have to read what is what and waste some more time wondering. I really miss Canvas

  20. Lilly G-avatar

    Lilly G


    Better. Wish it had better notification settings (and maybe personalization settings?) and was easier to log into when your school has special security settings, but a lot better than before, easier to navigate. My only true complaint is that it still doesn't show everything from the courses, like sometimes all announcements don't show or assignments aren't listed or can't be opened from the app.

  21. Gokay Orsel-avatar

    Gokay Orsel


    Overall does what it's supposed to do. My feedback is automatically opening external links. When this happens, I can't reach the context and instructions inside that link because I'm automatically sent to the browser. Fix this please.

  22. Samantha Maclaughlin-avatar

    Samantha Maclaughlin


    Blackboard is a requirement for my college as we use it on a daily. I really with the notification feature worked better and that we could personalize it to notify us as soon as a teacher posts an announcement. Sometimes they dont click the option to have it emailed to us when they post and we dont know its been posted until the next time we login. Meaning they could post a last minute assignment and we may not find out till the next after its due. Also, some of the remind features dont work.

  23. Rainstorm-avatar



    I constantly get a Sign On error. I tried to reinstall the app, clear cache but I get the same error. It used to work but now there is no point in having the app anymore since I have to use a browser to log in. I would give it more than a star for the way it used to work but in the current state I can't use it at all.

  24. Cameron Cannon-avatar

    Cameron Cannon


    I have to sign in using the web which takes extra time. I just save the password and use biometrics. My only problem is lack notifications and the app crashes a lot. If I open the app, I'll get loads of missed notifications which isn't great when depending on the app for my online courses. When typing a discussion response, I cannot view all of what I typed.. Sometimes I cannot scroll it either. The app is definitely in need of an update.

  25. Donnetta Woodrup-avatar

    Donnetta Woodrup


    Love this app, although I have experienced some trouble with uploading my assignments at times, it helps keep me on task for my assignments when I can not be near my laptop. I am not the best learner over the internet but I am able read my assignments, print them out and turn them in on time. So far the I am winning using this app.

  26. Andie Toth-avatar

    Andie Toth


    It works alright I guess, if you don't encounter any of the many glitches and bugs. There's an issue I encountered just today where I log in, but not two seconds later after it loads it pulls me back to the login screen, and it keeps doing this. On top of that you can't really open attachments and this app is pretty much useless.

  27. Jennifer Taylor-avatar

    Jennifer Taylor


    I like having BB access on my phone, there are a few glitches but overall is helpful. Notifications could be personalized, some grades don't show unless I click again. Same with files, they say not available but click again and it works.

  28. Karl Erik Hofseth-avatar

    Karl Erik Hofseth


    The app is useful in that I like getting push notifications for new announcements, but the amount of stuff you simply can't do from the app is a serious drawback (to the experience of Blackboard itself, which already is not stellar). Your course splits you into groups? Well, go to the website to view that. Trying to use this app for anything beyond the push notifications is a constant fight to not have to move to my pc instead.

  29. Ping Pontiveros-avatar

    Ping Pontiveros


    It's an ok app however theres still a lot to improve on. What I hate the most is how the app fails to notify me (push notifications) regarding new updates immediately. It would normally take hours before the app would decide to notify me regarding updates from my profs. 2nd is how some features on the app aren't available as it is on its web counterpart such as checking messages and attendance. 3rd, the Activity Stream, real pain in the ass to use. Wish we could archive old announcements

  30. Sebastian Rubio-Gomez-avatar

    Sebastian Rubio-Gomez


    It works okay if you want to access your course material on your phone. But there is no dedicated emailing option, I have to load the desktop version through the app. Also your session times out constantly so you have to log in multiple times a day, really annoying and unecessary.

  31. Larry Quick-avatar

    Larry Quick


    You cant control the notifications beyond being on or off. I need to monitor messages (which you cant see or respond to through the ap) announcement from my teachers, replies to boards and etc. But no, I have to filter the 5 push notifications I need manually out of the 40 I get from "new student orientation" and "tutoring" that blackboard wont let you get rid of. Abnoxious.

  32. Ichigo Mirai-avatar

    Ichigo Mirai


    App is great and amazing! I get to learn whenever and wherever I want! Just a suggestion, hoping that the app will have a landscape mode as well. Basically it will take action to flip screen when "rotation lock" is turned off. Hoping for more improvements soon!

    Used the app for almost a year. Most of the functionality works but there are unresolved issues that shouldn't be that difficult to fix. One being the grades only updating after the second time opening the page. It needs some improvement but it is avery handy app.

  34. Bård Hestmark-avatar

    Bård Hestmark


    Notifications are almost always pushed hours after they show up in the web version, and can be burst pushed in the middle of the night. Found this to be the case on iOS too. Don't know if this is the fault of the app or my institution(ntnu), but it needs to be fixed.

    I literally have no idea what is going on right now no matter what I click i get "there's an issue on our side please try again later". It has been like this since i reinstalled it about 2 weeks ago, I updated to the latest version and cleared chache/data nothing has worked. Please help me or fix the issue

  36. Bouncy-avatar



    The app is so buggy, whenever i submit something, it'll just start loading for eternity, legit i waited 30 minutes for it to submit, and its just stuck at loading, another thing is that whenever i download files from the app, it just wont, even though i downloaded the apps required, it annoys me so much! I dont really know why the school that i am attending on chose this lms app, instead of google classroom.

  37. Michael Reece-avatar

    I mostly used this app to quickly check my grades. However, after my summer class I literally cannot get the course list to refresh and show my classes for the current semester. I tried logging out and in, clearing the cache, uninstalling and reinstalling the app, and nothing works! It's now a completely useless app. Really disappointed.

  38. Bonnie May McMaster-avatar

    Bonnie May McMaster


    Everytime I open the app it says "there seems to be an issue on our side, try again later". Other than the times it doesn't work, I find the features quite good. But the desktop version works much better. This app is limited to what it can do.

  39. Ann Authier-avatar

    Ann Authier


    App keeps logging me out then telling me my password and email is incorrect when I try to log back in. Neither is incorrect there's just a problem with this app. If this were fixed this app is incredibly useful and helps me stay on top of my assignments and grades.

    We have experienced so many connectivity issues using the blackboard app and the collaborate feature on mobile and on desktop. Our internet speeds are normal otherwise. Some content is also only available through the app and not vice versa. Distracting and frustrating in a time when this is our only access to learning material.

  41. Majed-avatar



    It is very slow when loading the pages. Also, it does not refresh for new data or changes from the first time. I have to return and click again to see the updates inside the course.

    Great website but the app is trash. I couldn't even view my documents and course contents. Hello developers if you would listen for awhile I have a couple of suggestions like adding light mode and night mode. Second, add a download button for videos and course contents. Third, Fix your menu sometimes you can't see tabs.

    This app is terrible, somedays it works other day not so much. I thought it would be a good idea to log in and have a quick look at upcoming assignments or newly posted grades but I cannot even login most of the time. Trash this app and just log in to your school's website for information.

    Even after this update I have been having the same problem as everyone else with all of my courses I try to open and it keeps saying that there is a problem on your end which is annoying and sad because many people rely on this app please fix this problem and a lot of error messages and glitches. Please fix this for phones I rely on this app heavily for all of my classes also having issues when opening class announcements I get the notification but can't open please help

    Hayley Fox


    This app needs a hard update. Blackboard ultra is aweful on the application. For some colleges it doesn't keep you logged in, for others it does. It's designed more of a webpage design than an easy to use app. I don't think there has been any design update in the 5 years I've had to use this app for school.

  47. Sharon Schoonover-avatar

    Sharon Schoonover


    No matter what update you roll out with, something never works when I need it to! Now I can't upload pictures of my math work from my phone without the app stopping and shutting down. Updated on 08/17/2020: STILL WON'T upload more than one picture per submission.

  50. cloudy-avatar



    The grade book never updates and the calender doesn't work, it'll say you have no assignments due for the next two weeks but if you check the calendar on desktop it will show ur assignments due. It's rlly out of date and you are better off using the desktop version to complete assignments.

    The app has been showing the same error message for months now. I've tried logging out and back in, deleting and reinstalling and nothing has changed. It's not fit for purpose and is entirely ineffective. I have had these same issues on both my phone and laptop.

    This app is complete garbage. You can't do half the things that you can on the desktop website, like being unable to access certain folders and emailing your classmates/professor is a nightmare to deal with here. It's only useful for looking at grades but otherwise this app is broken, slow and useless.

  53. Aesha Muwwakkil-avatar

Then none of my notifications are even up to date, I'm m not getting ANY of my recent activities and its not close, im seeing my 1st and 2nd week when we are in the middle of the 6th week. Fix it

    Not bad! It's really good to stay notified of all your courses and even allows you to do the work straight through the app! Although some files are not supported by all mobile devices, of course. I recommend it. Very useful.

  56. MarMar8312-avatar



    What an awesome and easy app to use. It puts all my courses and assignments right on the go. I love the calendar and alerts so I don't miss anything that's due and I can plan ahead for things that are coming up.

    Every update makes me feel like you guys are taking 5 steps backwards and 2 steps forward. You create more problems than you fix and only cause me and my friends frustration. Nobody at my university actually likes your website and the app is constantly broken to the point where it's just a litteral waste of space.

    It definitely comes in handy, but going to the website is better, for me, because the app is limited on what you can view . For example, my grades are never up to date in the app. The website always shows current grade, app doesn't.

    Generally a good app, but it doesn't have notification options for upcoming due dates or a section on the home page showing all the assignments due that week which makes it difficult when you have multiple classes.

    This apps notification features are bogus... i am only doing this because I got a notification of an assignment update from like september 3rd.. thanks for the update. I did that assignment 3 weeks ago. And no it wasn't a grade update. I don't use this app at all.. i think it needs major adjustments. One thing i do like is the color coding of the grading, it adds some motivation to get that green!!

    I'm a freshman at college this year and this BB app has been quite helpful so far. Although it has its occasional lag and slow updates when I made changes with my schedule, it works fine now. Will update this in the future semester if needed.

    Although not as easy to use as the desktop model of BB, it is good to have have access to course thread conversations. I often use when I'm traveling or need to access something quick on BB.

    Not great. Notifications come in hours late sometimes. A lot of content is not visible on the phone app but is there if you check on a computer.

    I can't even log into the app. Blackboard is working when I do it on a PC and when I do it on a browser on my mobile device but the app won't even let me get past the log in page. I hope the bug gets fixed soon.

    It has been logging me out at least once a day. AT LEAST. It's very annoying when I just want to look something up really quickly and I have to keep re-logining In.

    I wish that it synced up faster with the university's website for Blackboard. Also, some issues noted with video playback. Otherwise, a good way to access uni stuff on the go

    Honestly I always end up accessing what I want using the website... I can't use view the pre recorded session or navigate through it as easily. Its just taking up storage at this point?

    I can't even participate in my online classes for some reason, I've tried to do this for 2 months now since my laptop had no camera so I thought I would do it in my tablet, it has nothing to do with my browser since it's up to date so any problems are beyond me.

    Wow, I really miss the old blackboard. I can't even log into my school credentials. All it does it provide an external browser for my school and cannot properly log into the app interface itself.

    The due date system needs to be reworked. The app will tell me when something is past due, but not show that assignment on the due date timeline

    I prefer canvas over this confusing app. I failed a course because I didn't know how to use this. The laptop version is even worse. Canvas is 10000x better.

    After 4 months of deleting the app because I had the summer off. I downloaded the app again 2 days ago and still shows me the, "there seems to be an issue on our side. Please try again later" message. So disappointing! 😞

    This app is the definition of trash. Even the platform is full of bugs and will disconnect you by itself for apparently no reason at all and reconnecting takes time to the extent you can't imagine.

    It's WAY easier to find due dates for assignments than on the normal Blackboard site, PLUS it's more reliable to notify you of announcements and the like. I cannot recommend it enough as student who can sometimes forget assignment due dates!

  86. Candice Henderson-avatar

    Easy mobile access that allows me to review my assignment guidelines in an alternative way, rather than pulling out my Surface at any and all hours of the day. User-friendly, and easy to check assignment grades as well.

    Most unreliable app for University students. I cannot even look up a single University, let alone access my content. Have had no response back in over 8 weeks in regards to the issue. DO NOT BOTHER DOWNLOADING THIS APP, WASTE OF TIME.

    A lot of features from the pc/desktop version are not included in this app. It's also slower to load stuff. As a student who utilizes my phone for online class, this app doesn't give me the equal benefits.

    I posted a review a few years ago about this app, and was glitchy when it was first made. However, now the app works great! I can upload assignments much faster there then my computer and it's very convient to look up class updates from there.

    It's okay for checking grades but there has been a bug where the menu ui overlaps the rest of the screen on some pages making it impossible to click on things, the whole app could use a redesign because it is not mobile friendly

    Super handy, if I didnt have this app I would have been lost. I can track my grades, check my class messages and even click on my courses whenever I'm without my laptop. It's by far the best app I've had for college! Would recommend to anyone
