Having trouble opening Blackboard notes on your iPad or iPhone? Just OpenItApp.
What is OpenItApp?
OpenItApp opens Blackboard™ (WebCT™) documents on your iPad and iPhone that won't open otherwise. It is an indispensable utility for any university staff or student that uses Blackboard™.
Do you get to university and realise you forgot to download some notes? So you load Blackboard™ in Safari and open some course materials, to discover that only the first page loads. You try scrolling, double tapping, zooming, but nothing works.
OpenItApp works. It gives you full access to all your notes so you can look at every slide or scroll through every page. Then open it in your favourite app like Pages, Keynote, GoodReader, PDF Annotator, PDF Expert, Dropbox or any other app that handles documents.
