Doesn’t count my points! 1/5
Sometimes it works, I lock my phone and see points when I unlock. But most of the time, I lock my phone and it says I’m earning points, yet after hours I unlock and I’ve earned nothing! I’m disappointed.
The app just isn’t good 1/5
I’ve had the app for a while, and it’s horrible. The “rewards” aren’t good for many reasons, a few being that they don’t have good rewards, and they are only for percent off of a purchase. Saying that, I tried to redeem one for somewhere I could make use of a discount, and of coarse, the app crashed and told me I had to wait another day to make my selection for a reward. This went on and then I gave up and deleted the app. If they fix it and add more stuff, great, but until then I will not use it.
New update —> not working 3/5
Have had this app for 3 years and it has always been working fine. Got the iPhone 8 and ever since, the app constantly crashes. It will randomly say I’m not on campus or if my phone is locked, it will say I got “x” amount of points, but the points will not be added to how many I have. Now the app won’t even let me log into the app. I type in my email and the sign in button is white. When I go to type in my password the sign in button shows up as not clickable. I hit “done” and it shows error. I can’t even log into the app. Very frustrating
Doesn’t count my points 3/5
Sometimes I will have it open for hours and my phone is locked but then when I get back on my phone it doesn’t give me any points. This happens quite often.
I just got the app based on good things I’ve heard from friends. When I signed up through fb it crashed before I could do anything, so I deleted the app and re-downloaded. Tried signing up with email instead, but same thing. Very disappointed right now
I downloaded this app because I heard about it from a friend but it has done nothing but crash. Like it only logs me into Facebook and then crashes and nothing works. Please fix!!!
Doesn’t work 1/5
By Canada is my friend
Downloaded this app today and can’t make an account
Keeps crashing 1/5
By Brenton Malnofski
I’ve heard how cool and useful this app is. Yet I cannot experience it myself because it won’t stop crashing after the first two “Next” screens. Fix this issue please.
Keeps crashing 1/5
By Awesome weather
Can’t login because as soon as I agree to the location question, it crashes
Money saver 5/5
By T4F is trash
This app has saved me so much money and all I have to do is put my phone down and study. It’s a win win!
Can't even open the app without crashing 2/5
No schools even in my area. 2/5
I love this idea, and as a teacher I would totally encourage my students (& colleagues) to use it, but I’ve been suggesting my school for a YEAR now and it’s still not on there. 🙄
Cool Concept 1/5
The concept is pretty cool. Earning points to not be on your phone and redeem for items such as free pizza but you don’t earn points half the time and all of the good rewards are always locked.
What happened??? 1/5
I used to use pocket points a lot in previous semesters, but then fell out of the habit. I wanted to start again because some of the discounts/deals are really great, but the app keeps crashing!! It’s made me re-login through Facebook 6 times and every time it crashes. I even tried deleting and re-downloading the app. Super disappointing.
Not Earning Points 1/5
Lately, I haven’t gotten any points even if I lock my phone on the app.
Needs improvement 2/5
Having issues everyday where I leave it “locked” and it says I am earning points, for very long periods of time and when I unlock my phone, it shows my home screen as though I had never even opened the app. Looking forward to getting my points that I should be earning. Hope you find the bugs
Solid App. Helps stay off phone 5/5
Some of the rewards are worth staying off mine phone during class
Love It, Hate it! 1/5
Amazing benefit and really nice of them to give us free discounts, but....It crashes all of the time and doesn’t give me points for many hours I have it off at school. Most days it will work 1 out of the 5-6 hours I’m on campus. Makes it hard to want to use it.
School not available 2/5
I go to a Pennsylvania state school and it is not listed, I can't use the app because it doesn't have every university involved
More than likely rigged... 1/5
Always says im not in class..doesnt wanna give u points because people hate giving things away without pay. So its probs rigged.
Do it. 4/5
By Pappa Griff
Pocket Points is sweet! I like the easy access to Points. I know it's in the upcoming phase, but more options would be nice.
No Schools 1/5
By Biddy po
So how does it only have LSU? Sure it's the biggest but cmon you don't have University if Louisiana at Lafayette, ULM, or La Tech. I would love to use this app but noooo they don't want to add my school even though i've put in the suggestion multiple times over multiple weeks.
Buggy on iOS 11 3/5
Sometimes I’ll open the app and lock my phone, only to unlock my phone later and find out the app crashed and I didn’t actually earn any points. This started after updating to iOS 11. The app definitely needs a little work.
This app is a great concept and works well so far (Havent tried to use the points yet). My only suggestion is the ability to save your favorite brands.
Middle Schools! 4/5
By Kaitlyn Hummel
I loooove this app but it should have middle schools on it! I am in eighth grade and really want this app but I can’t!
Awful with iOS 11 1/5
After updating to iOS 11 the app is literally unusable. Lock my phone for hours and get no points.
Good idea but 3/5
How do you choose schools cause mine isn’t there?
Good concept but GLITCHY 2/5
Recently stopped working. It will act as if I hadn't had my phone locked with the apps open, won't let me access the gifts to redeem points, and in general does not load. Really disappointed. I haven't even updated to iOS11.
This 👏🏾 app 👏🏾 won’t 👏🏾 stop 👏🏾 glitching👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 2/5
Great concept but everytime I go to set it up or spend my points the app crashes and I end up paying full price wherever I am. Super upset by this 😠
FIX THE TIMER 1/5
I love this app. I have almost 2000 points from it but in recent weeks the timer is acting weird. I will lock my phone in the app then when i open it back up it will say that i have gotten no points even though my phone has been locked for an hour. This happens frequently. The timer will start from 2 minute and then say it’s at 3. I’m tired of it. please fix this bug. I enjoy this app very much and I don’t want to have to get rid of it.
Good app, needs work for iOS 11 3/5
Worked fine before upgrading to iOS 11, but now having issues with it crashing quite frequently. Please have your development team focus on resolving these issues. The latest update claiming to resolve iOS 11 compatibility has not fixed the issues I am experiencing. First, I would open the app and it would just never get past the concentric circles (trying to access location data I think). I deleted and reinstalled the app to see if that would help. Now, the app crashes either during the login process (w/ Facebook, after approving via Facebook app it reopens your app and just hangs or crashes) or if it does get past that it crashes when you agree to allow it to access your location (even if you did this previously and it shows up correctly under the phone’s settings). Please work on these issues.
recent update not working 3/5
Love this app but it’s not working as of late. Doesn’t load, just a blinking white dot.
Needs Giftcards 4/5
This is a fantastic way to get students off of their phone by giving them incentives. However, I think it would be even more rewarding if we could purchase electronic giftcards to Target or Amazon like Swagbucks.
Great....except for when you need it. 1/5
This app is super buggy and will never work when you need to access rewards. It constantly fails and won't run smoothly. Don't get this app! Waste of time and space.
Wish I could try it 1/5
The concept of the app is great. Unfortunately I can't even create an account to get started. I entered my name & email, created a password, and when I entered my birthday, it just hung... spinning little circle for 5 minutes with no response. When I close and reopen the app, now I'm not even sure if my account has been created yet or not, so I try to log in. Enter email & password. It just spins again, minutes with no reaction, no message, nothing. So hey, maybe the account wasn't created, go try to create it again. It hangs again, this time on my email & password. It gives no message, just hangs there forever, pretending it's doing something.
There is no break in network connectivity during any of this.
If folks can't sign up and use it, the app is worthless. "Hanging forever" is not an adequate software response for anything. I'm deleting this, maybe I'll try again if/when the company improves it. No point until then.
I don’t think I’ve ever been more frustrated with an app. There has been several times I would “lock” my phone to get points and I even get the notification saying “you’re currently earning points” but when I unlock it, nothing was earned. And right now the app won’t even load, it’s stuck generating those circles, I restarted my phone, closed the app several times, didn’t work then I deleted the app as a last resort, but now it won’t let me sign in, it’s stuck on buffering when I tap sign in. I’ve spent nearly 2 months gaining points and I was at nearly 1000, and having the thought of losing all those points really irritates me!
Won’t load 1/5
It won’t even load when I go and try and get food with points
Free items always locked 1/5
By Skating rules
All gifts that are free will always be locked. Even after a new week starts. Only gifts that require a purchase seem to go through.
Great App but... 1/5
Why is this only available for students? The whole world is distracted, using our phones too much. This functionality would be great for anyone trying to disconnect with their phone less, and connect with the real world more.
It keeps saying that I am not on campus while I am sitting in class. It’s been basically four days and I am super done.
Was a great app 1/5
It functioned perfectly fine up until recently. It'll still register the time I've left my phone locked, but it won't allow me to earn points, and also there's this negative count now??
Seems like a great app but would be awesome if I could get it for Des Moines area community college.(please add this school)
Doesn't work 3/5
Never registers that I'm in class. I've tried in every single one of my classes now, and I've reported this problem with no result. Absolutely useless.
Edit: figured out that it wasn’t working because my phone was in a different language (Hungarian). Works just fine in English, but please fix this bug
Used to be fine 3/5
I was so excited when I saw that they added Chick-fil-a to my school, but all of the items are always locked! I want Chick-fil-a but it's never available
Tried to use this at Subway and the cashier looked at me like I was crazy. Very disappointed because I wanted that free cookie
Also the recent update was so unnecessary. It's annoying to have to close out of the pop up with info I don't care about every time I want to use the app.
Very good but buggy 3/5
I love this app and use it all the time at my school. However, on so many occasions I have locked my phone and gotten the notification “you are now earning points” and after about an hour or so after my class I’d check how many points and probably about half the time I never get any points. Great app but this needs to be fixed.
Not My College 1/5
By Very good give it a B
I was super excited to try out the app but when I opened it to select my college, was not on the list. They gave me an option to enter it but I have no clue if they will even add it or if they do when. They need to expand the colleges or schools that they have on the list
good idea 3/5
great idea but it doesn’t have my school
Completely Broken 1/5
This most recent update broke this app. The timer won’t go when the phone is locked and when you leave the app or lock and then unlock your phone, the timer resets. Fix it.
I love it but… 4/5
I love this app so much and I use it every day. I’m actually number one in my school and have been for a few years. However recently the app barely works. I will have my phone locked and I’ll be in class and then when I open it it either closes the app or it just opens as it I have never locked it and I don’t receive any points for the time I stayed off of my phone. Very annoying but other than that I love the app. Just wish it would work
Recent Update 2/5
By Wife left meh
App has been awful since iOS 11 came out
