How do I get the view in the Canvas Teacher App to match what I see online?

I just downloaded the Canvas Teacher App for my iPad.  Seems nice, but the view I have of my course looks quite different from the view when I look at it online from a browser on my laptop (or from a browser on my iPad).  There are many items that I did not include in my course that clog the view, but some key elements (like Home or Modules) are not there at all.  In fact, I have no way to see the Modules in my course with this app.  (That seems particularly counter-productive, considering how Canvas seems to want us to design our courses around modules... and I worked hard to do just that.)

I looked in the Canvas Teacher Guide for iOS and could find nothing about this particular issue.  (The guide is actually pretty nicely written, for the most part.  But like most Canvas guides, it does a great job of telling you what they want to tell you... and a very poor job of anticipating any sort of problems or needs that are outside of their particular way of thinking about things.)

Any ideas?
