When launching the app for the first time, I get the message “Unable to launch configuration” on my iPhone or “Configuration loading failed” on my Android phone.

This is generally caused by the lack of an internet connection. Please ensure that your phone is not in “Airplane” mode and that you either have a Wi-Fi or cellular data connection. If you were connected to the internet and received this error, then it is likely that the configuration server is not available. Please wait awhile, and then try again.

Once you get this error, you must do the following in order to have the app download the configuration:

iPhone - Double Click the Home button and find the George Brown app in the bottom list of running apps. Touch and hold the app icon. Once the icons start to shake and the delete symbol appears on the icon, click the delete symbol on the icon. Once deleted, click the Home button once again, then launch the George Brown app.

Android – Click the “App Switch” button, then press and hold the George Brown App. Once a menu is displayed, select the “App info” menu item.

You must “sign in” to access the “Student Section”, which consists of “Courses”, “Grades”, and “Account Alerts”. If you don’t “sign in” you still have access to “College Info”, “Social Media” and “Actions.”
