Skyward's mobile app can be downloaded and accessed on all major mobile platforms including Android, iOS, and Windows Mobile. With Skyward's June 2016 release now live, the new app is out of its beta testing stage. Four key features included in the updated app are improved menu navigation, home screen widgets, push notifications, and Touch ID for iOS devices -- among additional enhancements.
You now have the option to view widgets on the app's home screen, which provide snapshots of information such as recent notifications, an employee's time clock, or a student's grades. Similar to the favorites option, widgets allow users quick access to information and save navigation time.
You may also take advantage of the option to receive push notifications from Skyward's app to your mobile device. With push notifications enabled, you can receive notifications of new information to view within the app including scored grade book assignments, vacation requests, lunch account low balances, and more.
If you are using an iOS device, the Touch ID feature is also included in the app's update. This function allows users to log into Skyward's mobile app with the touch of a finger - an alternative to entering a four-digit passcode.
