Canvas can function with several smart phones and iOS devices. Compatible devices include platforms such as the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, Android, Palm and Blackberry. At this time Kindle Fire and Windows Phones are not supported. 

Note: Since Canvas uses small elements of Flash, not all Canvas features may be supported on mobile devices, especially on iOS. 

To download the app, go to the App Store (iOS devices) or Play Store (for Android devices) and search for Canvas by Instructure 

Important Note: When you load the app, it will ask you to find your school in the list of colleges. Harrison College will NOT be in this list. In order to use the app, enter as the URL (school).

Keep in mind that the Canvas interface was optimized for desktop displays, so using small form factors such as phones may not be a pleasant experience in using Canvas. Canvas is not officially supported on mobile browsers. We recommend using Canvas mobile applications for an improved user experience.
