Canvas Student

The Canvas Student app is the mobile version of Canvas that helps students stay current with their courses anywhere. Canvas is built on open web standards and uses minimal instances of Flash, so most features are supported on mobile devices. You can access Canvas from any browser on your Android/iOS device. However, mobile browsers are not supported, and features may not function as expected compared to viewing Canvas in a fully supported desktop browser. On mobile devices, Canvas is designed to be used within Canvas mobile applications. Canvas pages within a mobile browser are only supported when an action in the app links directly to the browser, such as when a student takes certain types of quizzes. Support is not extended to pages that cannot currently be used in the app, such as Conferences or Collaborations. Additionally, Canvas offers limited support for native mobile browsers on tablet devices

Available on the App Store and Google Play.
