Won’t let me access it
I have been using this app for a very long time to check my grades and while it has have had its moments, it was overall fine. This entire app though recently won’t let me access it even though I logged in with WiFi on! At first, I thought this was a glitch and would check my grades another day, but every single time I do it had the same error. I am now convinced it is your faulty service and I also have seen many other reviews complaining about the same issue. If your school uses this service, use the website version as it is much better. If the developers do change this problem though, I will edit this post and change my rating.
A parent’s necessity!
Update: I regretfully updated to the newest version and now can’t log in at all. I should have read the reviews like I usually do before updating. School ends in a week so hopefully it will be fixed by the start of the next school year. As a parent, I have used this app to keep up to date with my kids grades as well as school events through the messaging section. It is great except using on the iPhone. Messages are cut off and links embedded into them always crashes the app when clicked onto them. I rarely if ever use my desktop or laptop, so please fix this app to work on the iPhone 8 and up.
Works ok, but lots of room for improvement
This app works fairly well, does it’s base job of displaying grades. However, the UI seems to be just a simplified version of a website, not an actual native app, which makes it somewhat cumbersome to use. It would be nice if grades less than 48 hrs old were bolded or somehow highlighted to help me identify new grades easily; a notification that new grades have posted would be awesome. I see no use for the calendar function at all, though that may be because teachers just aren’t using it. Also, can you please make it possible to hide dropped classes? This is possible in the web-based version, but not in the app.
It is a great app, but after about three weeks of having it, it is being a little bit funky. It logged me out saying I had a lot of invalid passcodes, yet I all my information was right, and I didn’t even log in for a couple of days, so it’s impossible. And now it won’t log me back in even when I deleted my account, and the app, and tried everything all over again, but it won’t take anything. It is just too strict and it won’t let me do anything, no matter how hard I try. So now I can’t see my grades and projects, and things due. Over all, it has some things they might need to fix, but it’s a good app.
Won’t let me log in
I used to use this to check my grades and I never had a problem with it. But recently, it has been stuck on the “Verifying...” screen forever after I put my password in. I deleted the app and re-downloaded it just to find out that it won’t let me search for my School District. Anytime I start typing I see a pop up that says “Please check to ensure you have a Wi-Fi or other data connection and try again. I have turned my WiFi on and off and even tried using my data but it still didn’t work. Therefore I believe that this is a problem with your services, especially since I have seen this problem in other reviews from as far back as October. Listen to the reviews and fix this.
This app has been very helpful in the past to be able to quickly check grades and to check food balance and other info. Recently the grading doesn’t update and it hasn’t updated in over a month. It will update on the online desktop version but not the apps. It also is frustrating to have the link for app support take you directly to a page not found website. On top of this, the program is buggy and there hasn’t been an update released for a while to fix any of this. I hope an update will be released soon. This app has a lot of potential to be very helpful and to introduce new features to Skyward. I hope the app developers can fix this!
I obviously love being able to take attendance for my classes from my phone, and I love being able to know when my own child’s grades change and see how he’s doing. However, if you unlock your phone, the notification is gone; you can only see it once. Also, with the most recent update, I no longer receive notifications at all, and I am NOT happy with this. I checked my phone settings and the settings within the app, and they’re both set to receive all notifications. This needs to be addressed.
This app rarely works. It’s great when it works correctly but it often won’t connect. Sometimes when it finally connects it keeps the password keyboard up that you can’t exit out of and you can’t view your grades. Sometimes it glitches and stops working altogether. Every once in awhile it will say something along the lines of mobile access won’t work. Sometimes it won’t let me view my grades because it won’t switch off of my sisters account no matter how many times I click the arrow to switch people. Over all it just isn’t that great of an app.
It just... doesn’t work
It worked sort of well before, but -after accidentally logging out of my account- I cannot login. I examined the problem, and, as it turns out, a core service that Skyward should provide to the app is not being provided: the ability to search for a school district. No matter what WiFi configuration I use, the app throws an error saying I have a bad WiFi or network issue, when, in reality, the service they programmed the app to use to search for a school district is unavailable. Go figure. The app is completely unusable due to this; I cannot login at all.
Current Grades Won’t Show up
I use this app all the time and it’s been pretty good but for the past couple of weeks it hasn’t been updating my grades. If I log in through the website it works and I can see my current grades but on the app it’s not up to date. Some may not realize this and it will make them think they’re grades are still the same when that’s not actually the case.
Does what it’s supposed to do
Although there are many problems with this app, I still feel like it does what it’s supposed to do. Its U.I. is fairly simple and is a pleasure to look at. The only reason why I’m going to give this 4 stars is because of the fact that 30% of its different features such as career goals or endorsement progress are COMPLETELY useless because I’ve found that mine, and many other teachers have never used those features.
This app is so well done!! At first I hated it because it wouldn’t let me type in my school district or anything. But then the next day, I decided to give it a try. It worked!! And now, I can check my grades whenever I want to. This app is so good, and for the people who had the same problem typing in your district or something, wait 1 or 2 days and it should work perfectly!
I’ve been using the app since 2014 and it’s been fine. I loved when they updated the whole mobile system in May of 2015 it looks so much cleaner now than it did 4 years ago. However, sometimes when I go to get on the system, it loads while it says authorizing and nothing more. It typically starts working again the next day. It’ll do this maybe a couple times a week.
I check skyward regularly and often notice what grades are new and what are not. However, long after I confirm my grade I get a notification that the same assignment was graded. It’s useless! It doesn’t notify me before I even check it, so what’s the point of even having alerts. The setup is pretty old and glitchy itself too. I think the design needs an update, as it’s been the same for the past five or so years.
It doesn’t show you your whole paystub, you can’t actually print the paystub to see it in it’s entirety either, you literally see the three bits of information that is shown on the screen, and True Time is buggy as all get out. Oh, and 65% of it is disabled if I’m not on my work’s WiFi anyways, so, why do I have this?? I literally downloaded it so I could check my pay and make sure my whole check from my 3 different school district jobs were all happening and that’s LITERALLY the one thing I can’t see.
