    Finding a PC runs show and the timetable makes you re login every time. Otherwise good.

    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.
