  • Slow

    By Karla526
    VERY SLOW. My internet connection is 330 mbps but this app is just too slow. I would rather use regular browser (safari or chrome). They seem to load canvas faster.
  • Garbage. Crashes. Constantly hanging

    Too much flash and fluff. Useless to do any actual schoolwork. Junk. Slow. Crashes or hangs frequently. Takes forever to connect. Forgets credentials often. Makes using strong passwords painful.

    please show the calendar event description in the app. Not showing the description is counterintuitive to having a calendar function.
  • Is it just me?

    I don’t know if this only happens to me, but I have notifications ON for everything, yet I never get notified when something happens within the app. It’s kind of annoying tbh. I don’t check Canvas much, which is exactly why the notifications need to be fixed.
  • Some problems

    By KitKatPattyPat
    It's good to use for college, but it's very infuriating to get spammed with notifications every single second. It would be fine if I could adjust the notifications to only get notified of messages from instructors, but I cannot find any options to remove notifications of other students. It would be a slight annoyance were it not for the fact that whenever I try typing in Canvas all of my work disappears when a notification about a classmate that has nothing to do with me is constantly popping up. Even when I copy and paste my work disappears when the notification pops up. I hope that's fixed very soon so I don't have to be annoyed when doing my college work.
  • FIX IT!!!!

    I use canvas very frequently and I like it for the most part. The MAJOR ISSUE I have is that the calendar does not work! I can see my classes and that my teachers have posted something but, I can’t see what they posted like I can on my computer. This is the thing that I cant stand about canvas. Another thing is that I stopped receiving notifications from the app. This drives me crazy as well. On top of that when I try to add an attachment it says that there was an error. Only being honest: the app would be so much better if these would be fixed. It makes me so mad when i have to log in to canvas on my phone just to look at something. FIX IT
  • Okay, Could Be Better

    All of my classes are one this app and, for the most part, it works really well. The most frustrating thing is when I get a notification, click on it, and then it doesn’t take me to what the notification was about, just the homepage with all my classes. For example: Yesterday my teacher added a new file and canvas sent me a notification. I clicked on it and instead of going to the new file or even just the file page under that class I had to go in and follow the steps to find it myself. It’s more annoying than anything else, especially since I have a tendency to click without looking at what the notification says, then have to go back and try to remember what it is I’m looking for.
  • Not useful anymore

    I used to be able to view my assignments via the calendar page. Now nothing appears and I have to pull out my laptop and log on. It’s gotten less convenient and less useful. Don’t update your app!
  • Please fix this bug in this wonderful app!

    By A honest review (:
    I absolutely love the Canvas app! The quick and easy access through my phone makes college way more manageable. However, for some reason my to do list is not loading any assignments anymore. I would really love for this bug to be fixed because i simply cannot handle college without this app. ;)
  • Not a very good anything

    By soundneutral
    As an app and website, it really is not very efficient for teachers or students. Teachers have to manually put in the grades from canvas onto encore and sometimes they forget to publish an assignment so the kids don’t see their homework and it just screws everyone up.
