To give you a better understanding of the user experience with AIM, let’s take a look at what some users have to say:
“I am just wondering why you add a feature that allows you to pay fees but isn’t completely reliable? It makes it more interesting when you’re charged extra to use the feature, surely one must understand that when transacting money your reliability and trust go hand in hand. So please remove the feature so that there aren’t more victims or do something about it.” – Anonymous
“At first, it was functioning properly but after updating, it’s misbehaving. When I try logging in with my credentials on the app, it says username or password incorrect, meanwhile, it’s correct. I even added the suffix. I then reset the password and still, but when I log in online with the same credentials, it’s working.” – Anonymous
“This academic app is very useful. It gives a bird’s eye view of what’s happening on KNUST campus. It shows you the fees to pay and where to pay. It allows you to see your results for the previous semester. The only setback I have on the app is my inability to read lecture notes. Notes have not been uploaded to where they must be on the app.” – Anonymous
The developers of AIM are continuously working to improve the app and address any issues that users may encounter. Here are some recent updates:
- Fixed issue where the app crashes when the passcode screen opens on some devices
- Enabled push notifications
- Added security settings
