Top Hat 1/5
Top Hat is simply unnecessary. It's rubbish! If you are a professor considering using this program with your students I urge you to rethink. I have spoken with many professors as well as students who have experience with this subscription and have gotten negative responses as a whole. There are simpler ways of teaching that are compatible with both students and professors and trust me this is not one of them.
Needs Slide Over Support in iPad Pro 3/5
This app is okay, but there are some thins that need improvement. First of all, the cost is a bit pricy. Second, make this app support slide over and split view on the iPad Pro.
By Boss Ruten
Should have push notifications
Better alternative to a text book 5/5
For those who have never taken chemistry in high school, this online text is perfect!
Insanely expensive service with a broken app. App says that subscription is expired even though website lets me log in.
Attendance doesn't work. Laggy, bad design, and way to expensive for students who already pay thousands for classes. It's a lazy alternative for professors so they don't have to write down their attendances and Top Hat can't even manage to do that correct. Worst part is I still have to pay this developer for this broken app as my class requires it. Terrible
Crashes and fails to load content 1/5
By Class of 2017 Student
This app crashes, fails to load content, fails to connect, or freezes at least every class. As I am writing this my professor is doing a quiz that will not load and causes the app to freeze. My GPA would like to help the developers for their support.
Super lame yo too expensive
Needs push notifications 2/5
Mobile app needs push notifications, semester price should be cheaper.
Still having problem 1/5
I still have an invalid subscription banner
Cost should be lower. 2/5
By Chad Hirsch
The subscription cost is a bit pricey for a service that still has a few bugs. Overall makes giving a large group of students quizzes very easy. Would like to see a longer input for short answers. 16 characters is not enough for most questions that need to be asked. Please give at least 32 char.
Newest update 2/5
By GRIM ADVOCATE
After updating, my subscription had expired , when it finally did re-authorize, I now cannot access my courses content questions even though they are open
Made me lose credit 1/5
The stupid bug where it said my subscription expired made me lose points. F this app
I personally find the app a useless waste of money only having it since I was required to have to it to take test and have my attendance taken.
Negative stars should be an option 1/5
By Tophat Isabel lend
Not only is the app beyond useless, but the information in the 'book' is also wrong. I feel as though I lose knowledge from using this resource. An army of trained baboons could have made a better product. This is absolutely the worst rendition of an online resource. Not only is the app garbage, but it is no better on a web browser. I personally believe top hat should refund anyone who is unfortunate enough to have to use this trash, furthermore tophat should also refund any students tuition for the cost of the class that undoubtedly many people will have to take over because of this none sense. I trust Wikipedia more for answers than this book. top hat, go find a different line of work to be in. Negative 5 stars for you.
The interface is very hard to use and get acquired to and the money your paying is worth something 200x better than this. Wouldn't even use this app if it were free if my professor didn't make us
Awful, too many bugs... 1/5
By Struggle O-Chen student
There's nothing worse than being a guinea pig class for a new interface and e-text, especially when its one of the hardest classes in my academic career. The app itself is extremely minimalistic and has several bugs. Between using the e-text through my web browser or trying to answer hw questions there's always an error or it just shuts down completely. How do companies not excessively test and trial this stuff before messing with peoples education? ...oh yeah..$$$. I deem this entire interface and app useless for the iPad Pro. The only way I can justify e-texts is when they're interactive of offer more than just cracking open a traditional text book... get back to work top hat... stop inhibiting students.
Great app 4/5
By Anthony Rabel
Easy to use, but has some minor issues to work out
Great app 5/5
Product so bad Professor quit using at semester, won't refund. 1/5
Just DISGUSTING. Their product was dysfunctional EVERY week.
Great app 5/5
Had a great experience. I can take my notes and go back whenever I feel like it. Access to everything that I need and I take majority of my quizzes on here. Really awesome app.
Fatal Error 1/5
Tried to update, stuck on "install". Now I can neither update, use, nor delete.
What a drag.
The idiocy of this app is amusing. A monkey with a keyboard could have programmed a better app. Not to mention at the steep price of 60 dollar for an iPhone application, this app should take my tests for me.
This app is absolute garbage when put next to an app like "Reef Polling" but guess what?! REEF IS FREE AND THIS COSTS AT LEAST 25$. 👿👿
Great but crashes a lot 3/5
Make it so it connects fast and easy. Also maybe bring down the price? We got a lot to pay for as it is.
Great app 5/5
Never have had a problem with the app
Great App! 5/5
This application is very useful especially when you do not have your computer to use.
By Tophat blows
Your teacher is bad if they encourage the use of this app in their class
Your service is completely idiotic 1/5
I'd love to meet the millennial losers who thought this up. Nothing short of petty theft.
Works poorly and costs too much 1/5
This app has way to many problems. It doesn't always submit your responses which is really frustrating when you get graded on answering the questions. It also cost way too much for how poorly it functions. I get upset when I find out a teacher will be using this because I hate paying for it. I'm already shelling it way too much money to go to college and to pay for overpriced textbooks, so why should I have to pay for a malfunctioning app?
Top Hat 5/5
By Mayor John
Why paying to participate in class? 2/5
By عبدالله الطائع
Why do they let us pay for everything? A simple app like this should be free for students!!
TopHat Review 5/5
This app has made the class room a little bit more fun and enjoyable.
By Yassin Moha
App comes in handy during lecture. Suggest you use it.
Good but too expensive 1/5
It serves it purposes to poll classes but uses its requirement for some classes to up its prices, there are countless of other education apps who charge $14 or less for a 6 month period compared to $24 for four months of this.
So happy 1/5
I'm happy that I spent 24 dollars of my own money that I worked for, for such a stupid and retarded app. CEO mike you are a disgrace and should shutdown this app and work for mcdonalds and maybe then you will be able to make the world a better place
By Lil Kanye Ross
This is a giant waste of time, the app is garbage. Don't get it if you don't have to.
Not so good 1/5
By Henry Lancashire
Tophat took too long to download so i killed myself
Don't click that "get" button! 1/5
By Eddie Martinez (Mr. Fab)
I understand why this app exists, but why it is so complicated and expensive is beyond me. I feel we as college student pay enough as is and don't have to pay money to be counted as present in class.
Literally kahoot with a more complicated interface. Why any professor would utilize this is beyond me.
Poor quality for price 1/5
For $24, I expected a hell of a lot more than what I got.
i agree with the other review, this app is a waste of money. there's no reason i should pay to be counted present in my class
Another pointless app used by professors for in class activities. This can be done easily with paper and pen, just another way to strip students of their finances.
By m the friz
Would it really be so hard to make all of my progress stay open when I close the app, because this is one of the most inconvenient apps I have ever used. If I could give less than one star I would as one star is far to generous to who ever designed this app. They should call whatever YMCA class that hosted their app development class and demand their money back because they clearly didn't teach them anything. My dog could make a better app and she's been dead for three years. Also who ever is giving this thing five stars must be either, 1) disturbed, or 2) being paid to write those reviews.
Don't ! 2/5
By M.C. Shan
Glitches, freezes, performs slow, super low tech, and not really organized well. The app seems unfinished and answering questions is a nightmare (to submit)!
Too many bugs/glitches 2/5
Good concept, and works well a good portion of the time, but it has a lot of bugs and problems that go on in class. They just need to further develop it, making it run smoother.
Top Hat 4/5
By Lenin Lainez
This is an excellent tool to learn in class and to keep up with attendance, however it is a expensive tool to keep paying $ every semester.
By Dfcmira 84
Used this for Logic class in college this semester. I skipped way too much class but I do know that this app is a really chill to get participation points and practice.
Was alright wished I could edit slides with my finger and add my own notes.
