Canvas Student Reviews


Can’t open files  Imheredontworry  4 star

This app works great but I can’t open files. This is an issue because I am normally away from my computer and need to access my syllabus. Please fix!


iPad features  iChrisRomero  4 star

Great app just please add split screen.


Bad Update  Debaser182  1 star

Updated and now can’t login just like many others. Please fix!!!


What if  arnavfoshow  5 star

Great app would love the “What if” feature to be added to the mobile version, so users can check what their possible grade could be.

Please fix security update  Marissa Quesada  1 star

This app was okay before the update. I have it downloaded on my iPad and iPhone. Before the update, once I logged in on each device, I would stay logged in on both devices. Now, if I log in on my phone, it logs me out on my iPad and vice versa. The feature of being logged into 2 devices simultaneously is invaluable. I’m beyond frustrated this feature disappeared and I urge the developers to fix it!!


Problem  tjlotts  1 star

Hi the canvas app keeps logging me out of my canvas account.This is my second time of uninstalling canvas reinstalling canvas in order to use the app.


Very good  tzvired27  4 star

This is a very good app if you’re in college like me. But the new update doesn’t even let me sign in!! It locked me out of my account!!😡😡😡😡😡😡

Needs one more thing...  tK TerroR  5 star

Please add the ability to perform “what-if” grades and scores on assignments like on Android, it would be really useful!!


Bad update  thatcjkid  3 star

After I recently updated, every time I open the app, it’s on the find my school page. That is highly annoying. I have to search for my school and log in every single time.

I hate this app  exreamly unhappy student  1 star

We recently converted to canvas from blackboard. This is the worst thing possible a professor told me I had a group assignment and was placed in a group but it never populated till about a week later and that assignment was extremely late. I receive notification that I have email waiting but when I click on it, there’s nothing there. Things take a really long time to actually appear. Probably the only good thing about this app is that it is easy to navigate through.


Terrible.  KimSwinUni  1 star

Awful app to use for something as important as university. The notification tab is incredibly slow, often my computer notifies me hours before my phone that I have a new message. Messages on the discussion board are idiotically set out, with miles of blank spaces between each message. Terrible.


Useless  willlllliiiiiiiiiii  1 star

It requires me to select the school and then log in every time.


unusable  SizzleNic  1 star

not able to read information easily on iphone.


iPhone scrolling issue  nonivkmame  3 star

I use Canvas via Swinburne online and there seems to be a glitch with the iPhone display of conversation threads in that the pages appear massively too large for he device and scrolling takes forever. The comments are 40- 50 swipes down the page, even when there are few comments. I guess, I’m a nutshell, it’s not very responsive.


Great compared to competitors  Benjamin2856  3 star

Compared to competitors it’s a great app, especially since most online classrooms don’t even have an app, However this app is certainly not perfect. For example it does run slowly on older hardware and sometimes I have issues with it not displaying everything.


Unusable  jpyke  1 star

Literally cannot use this app at all. Assignments are blank pages and discussion board comments either don’t load or load with a constant space between them that no matter how much I scroll down I can’t seem to catch up to the comment zooming away from me. Please fix this so I can actually study.


The discussion board  everynicknamehasbeentaken12345  2 star

I can’t view the discussion board on this app because the comments are not laid out properly. In some instances, i can’t view the comments at all because the individual comments keep scrolling themselves down.


Works well  whtrbbt  4 star

Needs to be updated to work with new iPad Pro resolutions - current is letterboxed with black bars, so isn’t taking advantage of the full screen. Works quite well otherwise, with good integration and functionality from the web version.


Information disappears  NurdanKullukRennert  5 star

It was working beautifully when I downloaded this app and I was using it everyday. Now, it doesn’t show the new notifications nor when I go to my units do the discussions show up. Please fix this issue. Thanks.


Syncing Improvement  KPC732  5 star

The app is easy to use and great at managing all the materials and the to do list. Hopefully there’s a way for the online version and the app to sync, so when you read a discussion it knows when a discussion or announcement has been read on either one.

Recent update broke app  OkDokeSoccer  1 star

This app worked great until the update the other day. Now the app asks me for login every time and just loads the website within the app vs the actual mobile app.

New update ruined everything  Katiekv  1 star

I, like others, am unable to log in. It says my username/password are invalid, when I try to reset the password I never get the email.


Can’t Log in  Jayneleo24  1 star

Since the last update I haven’t been able to log in. I even submitted my email to reset my password, but never received an email from Canvas to reset it. And yes I have checked my junk folder and it’s not there either. Very Frustrating.
