Pros and cons of Blackboard app for iPhone and iPad

Blackboard app good for

This is great improvement from the previous iteration of the app. However, can we have an iPad version as well?
The app is much better than the original Blackboard app, but the icon needs a facelift. The colors are too vibrant and do not match each other
I just found out my schedule days before I was supposed to. THANK YOU SO MUCH BB STUDENT!!!

Some bad moments

No iPad app, only iPhone. When I start on iPad in landscape mode, it shows the screen sideways in relation to my keyboard. It doesnt work on the same Cas custom login page that the Mobile Learn and Grader apps work fine with. It still doesnt honour any of the HTML formatting in announcements, items, etc. instead of a nicely payed out announcement we see one long unreadable paragraph. Seems to be no structure to the content, I lost the course menu. Definitely not a delightful experience.
Why schools have to pay you to create an app for them Why not just create one central app for all schools and then charge them
This application is not user friendly with Voice Over. The main items on the menu are spoken aloud, but it was impossible to activate any link with the program running. As a blind user, I am highly disappointed.
I downloaded this app so I can more easily keep up with the required discussion board posts and replies for my Masters program, which is all online and heavily relies on BB discussions. Unfortunately, the discussions are displayed in a desktop view within the app, so its almost impossible to navigate and use the features. Newsflash, Blackboard: its 2016, time for some responsive design in your product. This is crazy!
When I first got the app it was cumbersome - signing in took multiple steps and theres not options to remember my school, username, etc. once signed in, it was hit or miss on what features would work. More recently, it wont let me sign in. Pick my school, put in username and password, and it takes me back to school selection. I didnt like canvas, but I wish my school would go back to it - at least their programs works.
My field of study relies very heavily on being able to view instructor feedback for grading purposes. The app only shows you the score on an assignment. To make things worse, my mobile browser wont even let me view Blackboards website. You need to use a computer to use even the most simple features! Terrible. Please do something about this!
