Android for Academics part of our windows phone Education and have installs 100000. Update Dec. 19, 2013.Rating is 57.9259. Windows Verison is 2.04. Actual size 200.0 KB.
Used to be my favorite, but no more I have used this app for many semesters, but last semester, the app stopped locating my spreadsheets. I waited patiently until the middle of the semester, but I had to go with another program. I tried again this semester, but still no dice. So frustrating. I'm really sad that such a great program has become my least favorite of all time. Going to find another way to keep attendance. Bah, Android for Academics. Quit advertising products that don't work.
Cannot Log I have installed this app, in the hope that it would deliver what is promised. Much to my dismay, after i encoded my class list and would now add class to the app itself, it keeps on denying me access through this repetitive prompt: "invalid username/password" which I think was absurd due to the fact that I have entered the details correctly every time.
Would be great, but isn't I was really wanting this app to work, but when after following the guidelines to the LETTER (based on the help page example) it still says it cannot access my spreadsheet information! I even downloaded the Google Sheets app and got all of my spreadsheets downloaded on to my device to circumvent any possible wifi issues. But nothing helped. And now it is saying that my log in info is not valid, even though I have confirmed it is correct and it is the same information I used only one hour ago to access my documents. Please fix these issues (as it seems I am not the only person having them) because the set up of this app is wonderful and should be really easy to work with, if the app itself was working right.
App stops The app has worked well for a year and now it fails and closes when I try to open one attendance sheet. It does it every time on only this one sheet. All others working correctly. Jan 2015. Uninstalled and re-installed app on my tablet and phone. Still will not work with either. Message that information on spreadsheet cannot be found, then it stops.
Error message Great App. I've used this app all last year, but this year when trying to set up my classes I keep getting an error message "There was a problem retrieving data from your spreadsheet" Please try again. It all started when google forms updated forms automatically. Any suggestions? Thanks
Frequently crashes, or cannot pull the attendance sheet. Not an option if you are taking attendance.
Signing to gmail account-Problem I am providing correct usename and password but it says invalid!
can't connect to spread sheet I figured out how to sign on (I had to disable a security feature in my Google account that disallowed non-Google apps to connect). But, when I tried to connect to the spreadsheet, I kept getting a message that the app could not read the spreadsheet. Disheartening. I had hoped to use this, as it sounds like a great idea. Hope the kinks are worked out.
What a waste of time Well that's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back. Tried to set it up....wouldn't recognize google username/passwords....wouldn't open the spreadsheet. Seriously? Don't advertise it if it doesn't work!
Error message Always keep on saying your username or password is incorrect
Very easy attendance app - syncs with Google and cell phone app Extremely easy to set-up on a google drive spreadsheet.... just have one column student names roster, then the app sets-up the formulas linked to that spreadsheet. Extremely easy to take attendance via the cell phone.
A After use and my view about this application
Great App This seems like a great App for college professors. Those that are having any issues go to the website for any clarification you need.
Can't load data I keep getting a message saying it couldn't find the data.
Cannot log in to google
Spredsheet error The spreadsheet shows an 'X' mark on both 'in' and 'out' cells in the participant overview export, when a participant is marked present. Would be great if there was a way to see class participation of a particular student in a calendar format. when I export to Google drive, it makes a new file with a numerical addition instead of updating (replacing) the existing file. That would be better, so that I could keep track of a months attendance in a particular file. Or is there a way to sync the attendance to a file on Google docs? Great app by the way. I hope it doesn't have a time out or a limit to number of students or classes as other apps have.
It's Okay I love that it works with Google Docs. I'm looking for an app that will track 1/2 day absences too (elementary teacher). Being able to note the time a child leaves or returns mid-day would be great!
Bare bones It sets up relatively easily and works without any glitches--if you have data activated (either wifi or network) but it needs to be more customizable. For instance, you only have 3 choices: late, present, absent. My school differentiates b/w excused and unexcused. Furthermore, I need to allow more than three columns for a student's name either for email address, user name, or student i.d. (which I need for reporting attendance). Until it allows for more control, I'll be shopping around.
Couldn't find spreadsheet App couldn't find a spreadsheet on Google Drive. Noticed others had this problem with the Nexus 7. I really like the idea of this application, and it says it is compatible with the Nexus 7, but this seems to be a big problem for the developers. Uninstalling but will check on it from time to time to see if it has been updated and fixed.
Good enough The setup was very easy, and I was excited to use my new streamlined attendance "sheet" that was paper-free. Unfortunately, the app wouldn't work in my classroom. The program says, "Retrieving Students" for several minutes, then it crashes, or it tells me it is unable to connect to my spreadsheet. UPDATE: The problem was that I needed to authenticate my WiFi account. Now that I have done that, the app works fine. I would like it better if I could include attendance notes -- who did and did not have their books, who participated in class, and so forth. But this is good for what it does. Very easy.
Problem Accessing Spreadsheets The app works when the user is able to retrieve the spreadsheets, but I receive a persistent message saying "There was a problem retrieving data from your spreadsheet. Please try again." I believe this problem occurs when users use the two step verification feature to sign in to Google accounts. If the problem with two step verification were fixed it would be useful, but not until then
Not bad I understand the need to keep the app simple, but I would like it if there was an single optional field that could be inserted into the UI. In my case, it would be whether homework was completed. This wouldn't clutter the display up on even a mobile phone, and if it was placed in the spreadsheet (say in cell A1 on Google docs), shouldnt be hard to setup. It would make the app more versatile overall. As a simple attendance recorder, this is simple and easy to use. I like it.
Doesn't work! Utterly sucks! Repeatedly forced closed and finally locked my phone. Try something else.
Spreadsheet error!! I would like this app but it cant find the spreadsheet on google drive... i have tried on the nexus 7 and the google phone.
help I cannot get it to open a spreadsheet. I have created a spreadsheet with the first name and last name columns labeled, but when I log in through google it says it found no spreadsheets
Please use the gogole API Please use the google API (OAuth) instead of asking for a password to the google account! DIfferent options for the output would also be nice. In other news, I love the GUI.
Good You can also use it to monitor daily attendance of your employees to check against your standard bundy clock for verification if your people are honest
Great app in general, but need offline mode This is a great app in general, but I really do need an offline option here, I hate that I have to connect to my google docs account in order to use it
good app! This one would be more useful if it had a text entry box so I can enter notes besides their names. This would open doors dramatically.
Won't work on Nexus 7 Can't find the spreadsheets on my nexus, no problem finding them on other devices.
Not for Nexus 7 Nexus 7 doesn't find any files on googledocs. Please, fix the bug and let us know. Meanwhile, we have to try something different.
Useful App:-) This app works perfectly until I activated my google 2step verification, then this app is malfunction. I can't sync my spreadsheet. Please fix this problem. Thanks
Has potential... This works really well on Android Ice Cream Sandwich, but unfortunately on Jelly Bean (Nexus 7 and Nexus 4) this does not find any spreadsheets on Google Drive. A shame as i really want to use the app
Great tool. Great tool. I use it in all of my classes.
Best app for attendance The best attendance app
It would be perfect if you could have a column for student numbers before the surname, and also if we could create a column for each class, with the abesnts marked for each date.
Won't log in When I try to log in it says its invalid!!!
I've had the same issue as others have had: I am unable to sync with my google account, despite following their online instructions.
I want to use it but can't. I used to use it all the time until I changed over to a samsung tablet and now I can't even get the support or help I need to get it going again. Is there anyone out there who can help?
No login to Google allowed! This app looks fine but simply didn't work.
Access issues I never gained access to the app. After trying several times I have given up on the promises that this would be a great app. Shame on Google for such an inferior product.
cannot log in
Fix this login issue, please! (It denies me to log into my Google profile.) It used to be the only usable attendance app, but it is no longer the case.
