Waste of Money
This is a scheme intended to milk poor college students of what money they have. Given the existence of free apps like TopHat which do the same thing, there is no point to dropping so much money on an iClicker subscription. In fact, TopHat probably has better quality just because of iClicker’s occasional glitchiness. Although iClicker usually gets the job done, albeit sometimes with frustration, I was very annoyed that my professor had his students use this app. Alas, not my choice though. If you’re a student like me, you probably have no choice but to buy this app. If you’re a professor though, I beg you, please do not make your students waste money on this app. They’re already paying enough for college and TopHat will do a better job for you. If the developer reads this, please seriously consider reducing the price of this app or make it free. I would give the app 4 or 5 stars if that wish is granted.
I would give zero stars if I could. When I first started using iclicker I thought it was just crappy, but ever since my other professor has us using Tophat, this app is really sucky. Iclicker constantly disconnects during the class period, and if your teacher waits even as little as 6 min to ask the next clicker question, chances are you will have to refresh the page and log back in. Which keep in mind may count you as absent. I know it is not my internet connection because my laptop has very good internet connection and I have never experienced these issues with Tophat. Tophat is also much better because I as a student can study the materials even when class is not in session, as well as answer practice questions. TopHat has my five stars.
The moment I’m using the application, I just can’t do anything with my phone. The moment my screen light turns off and the phone locks automatically, I’m out of the class.
Wish it had more notification settings
This is a pretty good app, although a bit on the basic side, however, when a new question comes up after the previous one, there is no indication whatsoever from my cell phone and/or other device that a new poll has begun. I truly wish there were more notification setting options, such as being able to set a tone/set a vibration notification that sounds when a new question appears.
My Reef subscription has expired, but since then I purchased an iClicker and registered the remote. Even though this registration number clearly shows up in the Profile section of the app, I’m still being prompted to renew my subscription to use the app. Then, when I click the option to register a remote, I’m redirected to a website. I shouldn’t have to deal with all this rerouting. The system should know through the app that I have a registered remote and not prompt me.
It's like an ex girlfriend
First, the app will constantly ask you if you like it. If that wasn't annoying enough, when you tell it you don't it asks why. Then it asks you again the next week. The app also frequently requires to be reset and reloaded. It's not free even though it's incredibly basic. Basically you're paying however much for a professor to have an easier job. Best part is it doesn't matter, if you're reading this you probably have to use it because it's for a class. So jokes on you, enjoy the sub par app that is more clingy that a freshman girlfriend.
iClicker are my professor’s ways of keeping attendance. I had heard that I would eventually be charged to keep the app. I expected a notification that my free trial would be coming to a close. Right when we needed to check attendance in my Chem lecture I was notified, then and there, that I could not use it because my free trial had run out with no heads up. I missed the time limit to check in for attendance as I was scrambling to pay for the app. It had been a very long week and it was the last thing I needed. I could not be more disappointed.
When doing the attendance poll for my class, the gps for the app will sometimes glitch out and say that I’m somewhere else than from where I actually am, and it doesn’t let me verify for attendance because of this. I am not the only one in class that has this problem. We are a class of about 30 or so, and maybe around half the class has this problem everyday. Please fix this.
Failure of location feature
The location feature was a good idea to keep absent students from marking themselves present...BUT, it does not work. The location tracker is frequently wrong-egregiously so, and won’t let me or my classmates sign in to class. This is a PAID app that is required for courses. Talk to your professor if they want you to use it-it will steak your points and give you much grief. The app is also slow. The developers need to fix their broken systems if they want anyone to pay for this hot mess.
Answers & time
Reef needs to not just show “your answer”, but it should show “correct answer” as well once the poll is over. This would help with studying. Reef needs to also show the count down timer so we know when a poll will be over. Sometime the question ends before getting the chance to respond simply because I didn’t know it was ending.
So disgusted to pay for an app that doesn’t work when I need it to. I spend so much time in class fiddling with this application when I’m supposed to be learning and paying attention to the professor. It’s quite disheartening to charge a high price for something that doesn’t do the job. So irritating. Never recognizes my correct location, and it’s not my phone. I have missed out on countless poll questions due to failure of this application working properly. Thank you for nothing Reef.
Half the time it wouldn’t work and just said “Error” but didn’t tell me what was wrong. I came to find out that my free trial was overdue- would’ve been nice to have been told instead of missing questions for class. It also logs me out and takes forever to load when coming back and missing questions do to that. When it does work, however, it’s great.
Very user friendly!
This is my first time using an iClicker and I find it fun and easy to use! It's a remarkable little devise and I enjoy it's simple, and yet diverse functions in each of my classes. Very affordable as well; I am quite pleased!
Never works properly
Questions do not pop up even when I am in the session the whole class, sometimes it will only gives me 5 seconds to answer and it won’t register. Do not buy this, missed so many points in class due to this service. Should at the very least vibrate when a question is up because I never know if it is actually working. Do not spend the $15 like I did.
It’s good for school usually glitches when taking attendance with a range set up and also can’t see the questions nor answer when having quizzes but idk if that’s the professors decision
