What are users saying about BuddyUp - College Messenger

by G####:

Will not update school data. Galaxy s7

by U####:

Never worked

by I####:

Loading screen bar gets almost to the end then freezes

by T####:

I wasn't even able to use the application. It wouldn't even load after installing. Not even their website functions properly. Horrible app. Will not use or recommend to any of my college associates.

by L####:

Keeps saying it's having trouble connecting to the buddyup servers and to try again in a second, can't get past login. Y'all got some work to do on this thing before its actually useable, good concept though.

by S####:

Once i enter my info into the login screen it just sits there telling me that it is signing me it. I left it doing that for 30 mins and nothing. If it worked i think i would like it but it doesn't.

by Z####:

Wow, this helped me so much!

by W####:

You need a .edu email!!? Ridiculous. My bf is studying for finra series 9 and 10 certifications. There is no .edu for him but just as important that he needs to study and have a group. What are you FB cerca 2004? Edu lol ridiculous.

by M####:

Too slow

by P####:

Keep up the good work!

by O####:

This app is simply not done. It's full of bugs and is not usable by any standards. It would be a great app if it actually worked.

by K####:

I'm using the galaxy s7. I figured this would be a good app to use for some of my classes, but I am unable to post any messages... that makes the app pretty much useless

by H####:

This app is slow as all get out. It works fine in classes of maybe 10 people. Any reasonably sized college class (50+, which is below the size of the class where this app was shown to me) makes this app slow and crash. It slows so much even the loading animation doesn't move. It's a great concept. And it has improved since September, when I downloaded it. But it's still far from ready. The promise of "weekly updates" hasn't been fulfilled. It's December 26 and the app hasn't been updated since October 23.

by N####:

I've had an absolute pleasure using this app to connect with students in my psych class. It's very intuitive, user friendly, and just pretty to look at. This app is perfect for me as a student at Portland State. Some glitches happen here and there but I think that'd to be expected sometimes with these newer apps. Overall, I love it.

by E####:

Does not work. Never sends the confirmation email.

by D####:

Wow, this helped me so much!

by V####:

Buttons in app dont respond when pressed. Lags and difficult to navigate

by U####:

Facebook does essentially the same thing and isn't slower than a dead sloth. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if we weren't forced to use it to get marks... Way too slow to be of any use, you can't add people and the interface is just not good.

by I####:

I'm sorry but please fix it... I can't add new mates cuz the add button doesn't work; although I am in the class and can see my classmates, no one can see me; the user interface is confusing; There are 3 classes of chemistry for one single course; no notification is not shown. I really wanted this app to work but no... It's not working... Just. No.

by T####:

I tried to use this app but sadly I couldn't get onto a login screen. This app needs to function first and look pretty later. It's a great idea, don't lose your opportunity to capitalise on it.

by L####:

It recognises the uni briefly, until I press the sign in button. I am mainly using it because a lecturer suggested , it doesn't sound a little redundant, given all the ways to communicate that are already out there. But Idk, maybe I don't want to friend everyone at uni, who i may be able to collaborate with. I'll only be able to say, if l can actually get it to work.

by S####:

So it was okay for a while and then suddenly this morning, it won't let me sign on...can you please fix this?

by G####:

Just by the look of it I thought its a good app..but I cant even get to the login screen..it just vanishes as soon as I open the app. I reckon some changes are getting uploaded..is it ?

by Q####:

Crashes occasionally but is useful for connecting with class mates. Update: I can not message to the class. The post button is broken. I am experiencing a bug where the type window and post button are shown above a blank space where you actually have to click.

by B####:

Great idea and looks like a clean no frills app. But it hardly works at all on my android galaxy note 8.0 tablet.

by M####:

Like the idea. Cool for linking classmates together. Poorly designed and executed. The problem is simple, posts to class do not show up or there is a latency for messages that cause them to post much later. Kind of weird. Using samsung galaxys6. My phone has problems with other apps because i know the samsung series is notorious for having problems with apps. So this may be the issue. Help us Samsung users out!

by P####:

There is no way to recover my password. Terrible.

by X####:

This app is slow as all get out. It works fine in classes of... Around 10 people. Any class of a reasonable college lecture size (50+, which is below the size of the class where this app was advertised to me) makes this app slow and crash. It slows so much even the loading animation doesn't move. It's a great concept. And it has improved since September, when I downloaded it. But it's still far from ready.
