  • Useless App
    by Millie12200 on June 23, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    I never receive my notifications and they are turned on. Also, I’m not able to get into my discussions at all. What’s wrong with this freaking app???

  • Wish we could stay logged in longer
    by taymadison878 on June 23, 2022 at 3:37 am

    I love this app, but it’s frustrating at times. Every time I view a pdf or anything attached, I have to exit out and log right back in. I wish we could stay logged in for longer periods of time. It’s frustrating putting a long student email in and long password

  • Login Issue
    by HSJ86 on June 15, 2022 at 2:14 pm

    Can’t log into app. Every time I try to log in I get an error message that says “Incorrect username/password,” even though my credentials work fine on browser site.

  • Use to work!!
    by KrysM. on June 14, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    I am currently enrolled in 2 colleges for summer. When I logged out of the one I was taking classes for in the spring when the app worked perfectly fine to switch to the college I’m taking courses for the first part of summer. The app will not let me log in. When I went to switch back to my old university now it won’t keep me logged into the app, it just won’t work for me anymore since I logged out 1.5 weeks ago but worked all last semester no issues!!!

  • Won’t let me login anymore
    by ChekedaT on June 14, 2022 at 4:45 am

    I usually don’t have a problem with this app, however now it won’t let me login. Everytime I put in my info, it says that “My session has expired” Please fix this

  • App not working
    by Chocolate0981 on June 14, 2022 at 3:39 am

    This app was working just fine a week ago and now it won't let me log in at all! Please fix issue please!

  • Crashes when I try to view discussion board posts
    by gyie on June 9, 2022 at 2:19 pm

    When will there be at least an acknowledgment that they are working on fixing the discussion board issue? There have been updates but no notes that they are working on the bigger issue that makes the app useful. Helpful to see a quick update or check assignments but not an app to actually do school work on.

  • What is the point.
    by ___._Sunny_.___ on June 9, 2022 at 5:06 am

    I attend Bryant and Stratton university online. This app has NEVER worked. I can never view my discussions or anything for that matter. The most I can do is see my grades and that’s it 🫥🫠 I would LOVE to use this app to view my discussions and maybe even reply using the app. I’m so confused how everyone’s app is working. I have the latest iPhone and it’s software is up to date.

  • Trash app
    by tZb 34 on June 8, 2022 at 11:00 am

    Considering what schools pay to use blackboard this app is trash. Nothing loads. Constant error messages saying “it’s something on our end, try again later". The app is completely broken.

  • Never works
    by Hijknop on June 8, 2022 at 10:13 am

    The app is always “experiencing errors right now.” It may be helpful if I could actually access any of my classes on the go, but it usually comes down to me needing my computer.

  • Sad loss.
    by Summersunshine10 on June 8, 2022 at 4:13 am

    I used this app 24/7 it was easy access to my school work, but ever since the update I can’t use it at all so I’ll have to delete it.

  • Experience is usually great but recently..
    by brem67 on June 8, 2022 at 12:52 am

    Recently i haven’t been able to open my discussion boards in the app. “There seems to be an issue p On our side. Try again later” pops up everytime, but for months now. Im taking a summer class and having the same issue . HELP!

  • Issue on YOUR side
    by KateyMarieP on June 7, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    For the past month or so this app has NOT been working. The ‘there seems to be an issue on our side, please try again later’ message continues to pop up and apparently nothing is being done to fix this matter. Such a shame, because when I can use this, the app is amazing.

  • Was great
    by Ambvh on June 6, 2022 at 1:44 am

    I depend on this app to do my classes on the go. It stopped working last week saying “ sorry- seemed to be an issue in our end” well it hasn’t worked since. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!

  • needs an update
    by I_am_Emrys on June 4, 2022 at 2:40 pm

    i think there needs to be an update because it keeps giving me an error message saying “there might be an issue on [their] end”. otherwise the app is really helpful!

  • Worthless app
    by Evil Beaver on June 4, 2022 at 12:50 am

    My university requires a web login but after authenticating, the app just shows you the university's blackboard site in a crappy mobile browser and if you hit the X to go back at all, you have to log in again from scratch. Literally completely worthless.

  • Won’t stay logged in
    by re login every time on June 3, 2022 at 12:49 am

    Every time I go to use this app it logs me out. I always have to log back in which is a huge pain.

  • Discussion Issues
    by HisMrs420 on June 3, 2022 at 12:15 am

    This app is great for my classes and assignments I do have. However, I’m NEVER able to get into my Discussions. It always give me an error message that says it looks like it’s an error on Blackboard’s side and to try back later. It’s been 6months.. same issue. It never got fixed and it’s frustrating when I don’t have access to a laptop or computer to do my discussions.

  • When it works, it’s handy. The problem is, it rarely works.
    by Majetich on June 2, 2022 at 6:18 am

    When I’m able to use the app and access my classes it’s a great mobile resource, however, I spend most of the time with a “There is an issue on our end. Try again later.” error that pops up with every tab I try to open and I just wind up waiting to use an actual computer anyway. I’m giving two stars just because it’s not the worst app I’ve ever tried to use.

  • Dysfunctional garbage
    by NicknameNotTaken999 on June 1, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Worst school app ever. Videos don’t display unless you enable third party tracking… and even if you do that they work only *sometimes* and often only at mini (non-enlarged) screen. Class syllabi and course modules are not viewable at all (using SCAD version). No “save draft” option on mobile. Images cannot be embedded into discussion posts on mobile. You cannot cut and paste from a discussion post on mobile (making it impossible follow non-hyperlinked URLs posted by classmates, for example). Company offers no ready contact info for feedback or complaints. Absolute NIGHTMARE.

  • The most poorly optimized piece of online learning software
    by Negroes in paradise on June 1, 2022 at 9:01 pm

    The most poorly optimized piece of online learning software I have ever had the displeasure of being forced to use If you are an administrator considering using this service for your school, use their competitor Canvas instead. If you are a student being forced to use this software, save yourself the trouble and open it in a browser if you are capable. If you must use this app, I pray for your soul and sanity

  • Good for checking up on classes but…
    by Fiona aka dragontail on May 31, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    Some features seem to be website only rather than the app such as listening to class recordings, clicking website links & downloading some things. I tried to login but that probably only works one device at a time. I don’t recommend the app version…

  • Fix the discussion board!
    by Liz_27 on May 31, 2022 at 2:06 pm

    My word! Fix the discussion board issue already! This is a HUGE component of the app. It has rendered the app useless for nearly everyone.

  • Blackboard Discussion Board Feature Does Not Work!
    by xXBanksyXx on May 29, 2022 at 3:06 am

    I’m giving a one star review because several students in my cohort including my self cannot access the discussion board features in the mobile app. In addition, technical support on the Blackboard end is difficult/impossible to access conveniently. I sent a message 2-weeks ago and still have not heard back. My Universities IT department has been unable to assist as they believe this is a glitch in the Blackboard app. Moreover, they have no control over the functionality of the app and no convenient means to get support from Blackboard. Please help!

  • Discussion Board
    by FeltMountainHiker on May 28, 2022 at 4:19 pm

    Please fix the discussion board for those of us who take classes remotely and asynchronously. The app is otherwise useless for us.

  • Not working
    by SJVgold on May 27, 2022 at 10:26 pm

    The app is alright, much less functionality than the website. It has not been working for about two weeks now though, shows an error loading tab.

  • Fix this app
    by Zillyzocal on May 27, 2022 at 2:39 pm

    “There seems to be an issue on our side. Please try again later” is a message I get under the discussion EVERY time I use this same and has been occurring for months. My iOS is up to date. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Blackboard app. None of that works so it IS an issue on your side that you refuse to fix.

  • Many bugs
    by Michael11223445667889 on May 27, 2022 at 1:04 am

    Not great. Crashes frequently, logs me out despite enabling “stay logged in,” and requires several refreshes before updating information to match the desktop site. Worst of all, my discussions don’t load making the prompts impossible to view or reply to, the assignment overviews are not available on the app without starting the assignment and saving a draft, and grades do not post in sync with the desktop site. Also doesn’t allow signing the academic integrity statement unless on the desktop site. Hardly functional overall and wouldn’t even have it installed if I didn’t think they might issue an effective software update sometime before I graduate.

  • Never works
    by wkdnepwpsjclwpe on May 25, 2022 at 10:27 pm

    Always an issue. never loads my classes on the app. always a pop up saying “there seems to be an issue on our side please try again later”. just annoying that it literally never works.

  • Needs Major Upgrades
    by Jen22825 on May 24, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    This app cannot do a quarter of what the website can do. It always has errors and for the past couple of weeks it will not load discussions and sometimes the course itself won’t load. It constantly says error and to try again later. I’ve tried logging out and re-installing. Save yourself the hassle and just use the web browser on your phone.

  • Summer semester
    by sparstud03 on May 24, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Blackboard is generally an amazing app. Since this summer semester has started, blackboard has been acting funny and the discussions won’t show up. It keeps saying the problem is on their end and try again later. It’s been over a week now. Other than this issue, blackboard is amazing and easy to navigate.

  • Issue
    by Rico coolio on May 23, 2022 at 10:01 am

    Please fix the discussion board post issue! Whenever I try to access the discussion boards of any class it says “ please try again later “

  • Fix
    by Lynee85 on May 23, 2022 at 1:24 am

    Please fix the issue with the discussion boards as well the red error on the bottom stating there seems to be an issue on your side.

  • Update PLEASE!
    by Sindisbaht on May 21, 2022 at 10:25 am

    Yes having this app on the go is great. But it takes forever to load. Please update the system and the look of it! It’s needs a whole new makeover.

  • Please fix Panopto video player
    by MBH88 on May 20, 2022 at 6:39 am

    Logging on, signing on, loading my classes and is fine. But once I try to load the Panopto video player its a black screen on my phone and it says click to sign in and play video… then it load and loads and loads but next plays. Please help and fix this thanks. Otherwise 5 stars.

  • Discussion does not work
    by galaki4822 on May 18, 2022 at 12:33 am

    Have used this app for months with no issues. Suddenly the discussion boards are not loading and just keeps saying there is an error on their end. I use the app specifically to check in on discussions, so the app is now useless to me. Zero stars if possible.

  • Connection Issues
    by Robert Swofford on May 17, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    I’ve tried to view discussions, grades, etc., but I get a notification that there’s an issue on blackboards end when attempting to refresh the screen. Also, the activity stream doesn’t always update with current information so, I recommend tracking what is on the class syllabus for accurate dates.

  • Discussion is now broken
    by Traciepbnj on May 17, 2022 at 1:59 pm

    I struggled the app logging me out chronically. That was fixed in the last update. HOWEVER- the update broke viewing of discussions. They are no longer visible. Please fix ASAP.

  • Good Website, Bad App
    by Bassoonman3 on May 16, 2022 at 3:31 am

    The app seems to lack most of the functions of the website. I can’t access the discussion boards on the app, and many other pages don’t want to load.

  • Discussion rarely works and only thing need
    by apple forced name on May 14, 2022 at 3:22 pm

    Would like to read discussions but like all here never works. Get stupid notification then won't load and saya error. Seems absurd all the money blackboard gets and app looks like from the 80s

  • Glitching
    by Elw05d on May 13, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    Update: another update, issue persists Since the last update, discussion board threads will not load properly. A red warning keeps saying to try again later, even after “later” has taken place.

  • Fix bugs
    by Savagekid86 on May 13, 2022 at 4:20 am

    On my iPhone and iPad it won’t let me see the discussion when I click discussion or when it it pop up in my notifications.

  • It’s garbage
    by Arjunghosh1024 on May 12, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Hard to navigate, scrolling is broken and doesn’t save login information. This basically opens a web view from within an app. Save yourself some phone space and just log into the website via safari.

  • Stopped Working
    by just another grad student on May 12, 2022 at 2:34 pm

    I used this successfully for 5 courses with only minor hiccups but then the discussion board stopped loading at all. Since this is the one feature I really need to use via app, it’s useless to me now. I have restarted my phone, removed/reloaded the app, removed the app then reloaded it, etc and it still won’t work. Really when we pay $$$ for courses, unreliable apps are not okay.

  • Constant Issues
    by Eddierae on May 12, 2022 at 11:04 am

    The App has been showing error messages for weeks. I have logged out and back in. I also deleted the app and installed again. There are still errors. The worst part is my school says they can’t help, to contact Blackboard. Unfortunately Blackboard does not provide help desk support or contact info for assistance. The platform only works on the desktop. The app is view only and pretty much useless.

  • So Buggy
    by Don't know what to put here. on May 12, 2022 at 6:27 am

    Literally couldn’t use the app all semester. if I could give the app 0 stars I would.

  • Does it ever work?
    by Brobgilbert on May 11, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    This app will rarely open, and no matter how many times you refresh, it will never update.

  • Discussion error
    by Jaxagon on May 10, 2022 at 3:51 pm

    Constant error when loading discussion posts! Please fix!!!

  • Buggy and frustrating
    by Derpherpherpderp on May 10, 2022 at 3:19 pm

    Haven't been able to log into blackboard for a week during finals, been stressed out and this app does not help at all. Devs should be ashamed of creating one of the most needed yet incomplete and broken applications ever

  • Login issues
    by jhgggilmng on May 10, 2022 at 4:16 am

    People at my school frequently have trouble with the app now allowing you to login. You have to delete the app and redownload it and even that doesn’t work sometimes. My husband who works for IT at our university gets frequent calls about it but of course he can’t fix it because it’s on blackboard’s end.
