    Application is pretty useless. Does not follow the official Android guides. Hence, design and performance are on very poor level. It should be shame for university that has such a good CS school.

    Developers clearly do not have an understanding of app development. App is slow and very poorly thought out. I would happily work with the development team directly to fix this.
