  1. Hi Victoria, at the moment the app is for Apple, Android, BlackBerry and Palm only. I would hope that a Wndows mobile version is on the way, particularly as we start to see more devices running this OS. Will comment here if I get any further news from BlackBoard who make the app.

  2. there’s one for web os, but there isn’t one for windows phone? please sort this out

  4. A lot of the reviews in the PlayStore for Android give this app 1 star, lowering the average to 2 or 3 stars. A closer look shows that the vast majority of these reviews are in protest of having to pay the app a subscription. As we are from the University of York, we DO NOT HAVE TO PAY for this app, so please take this into account when considering the app’s rating.

    Having said that, I’ve found that the .pdf files won’t open through the browser option on my phone (Samsung Galaxy Ace), so I have to download them, which I need a separate app for.
