ACT Photo 1/5
I strongly agree. I’ve been trying to take a picture to upload on my IPhone for over a month. Didn’t know that you can’t on IPhone unless you have chrome .. Almost time for for test and still haven’t uploaded..didn’t know about this until I read the review. Thought ..either I’m crazy or this app needs and upgrade.. they sho update have advised in the app.
Terrible process and app! 1/5
No way to download the pic, then couldn’t take a pic! Not a user friendly app AT ALL! 2020, get it together ACT!
This app has one job and it can’t even do that 1/5
The app won’t let me either take a photo or upload one from Photos. This is absolutely ridiculous, and should be fixed ASAP.
Works for me 5/5
I saw so many bad reviews saying it doesn’t work, and I’m sorry to hear that. It took like 5 minutes to upload my ID. Very simple process
Yay, I look like a crackhead in the photo I submitted to act because their goddamn app won’t allow me to upload a decent photo. Thank you act for helping me achieve my full potential of looking like a crackhead. Congratulations.
i mean... 3/5
its really stupid to have to download an app in order to submit a photo for the ACT. but it does work and that's good at least?? i also hate how it flips the photo and makes your face unsymmetrical 🙄🙄 BUT it gets the job done 👍
Charged my bank account $89.95 1/5
The app worked I guess. Submitted a picture, but the issue is a mysterious charge of 89.95 showed up on my bank account. I didn’t give any financial info. Please be careful. I know have to dispute these strange charges with the bank. Very odd.
Didn’t have any problems. Downloaded the app on my iPhone, took the pic in the app and submitted it in about 3 min total from start to finish.
I would give this app zero stars if I could. This process should not be so complicated.
ACT Photo 1/5
By The master of puzzles
Worse app I have used! Tried 10 times, kept on getting an error, or a “try later”. Also, you can’t upload photo from photo library. Whoever made this app should get out of the business!
Look, I don’t really care about the app itself or how it functions. It’s the fact it exists. A whole app for submitting my photo? I mean it’s alright I suppose, I just don’t understand why there isn’t an easier way of doing this, like through your website... I would get rid of this. Which is what I’m going to do as soon as I’m done.
fix the app 1/5
make it so you can upload on mobile device!!!! this is stupid because it doesn’t tell you that it doesn’t work from mobile device. hate this
This Ap should never have been released. 1/5
Awful. I’m not sure what’s worse, the website or the ap. If you don’t submit the picture immediately you’ve just started a nightmare. Even if you follow ACT down their labyrinth, doing all they want you to: download the Ap, sign in for the 100th time, make sure your photo meets more requirements than getting top federal clearance, it still doesn’t work.
Maybe they’re encouraging you to come to their offices and submit a paper copy like when the dinosaurs roamed?
Come on ACT this should not be part of the difficulty of the test. Go hire someone from the SAT.... they got it right.
I can’t believe ACT makes you download an app to upload a photo, it makes me question them professionally and technically. On my computer it took 30 minutes to be able to upload something. So dumb. SAT was way easier to upload a picture
I didn’t want to download this 1/5
By Seattle Sushi
Like why couldn’t I just upload it on safari
Works Great 5/5
Other people seem to be having a problem with this app but it worked great for me. I logged in, took the photo, and uploaded it without any hassle.
ACT photo upload 5/5
Super easy, glad they make you do this that way nobody can take the test for you!
Ridiculously stupid 1/5
Does not allow you to upload an existing photo from your photo library. Only allows you to take a new photo. App has zero other functionality. What a ridiculous process to submit a photo.
By Ida w/ a silent A
This app is so frustrating you can’t upload pictures from your camera roll you can only take pictures on the spot which is very inconvenient. They should probably try to change that part of the app to able people to upload from their camera roll but until they do that I suggest not use the app. It just makes life harder.😡😡😡
Pure Idiocy 1/5
So the same organization that cannot create an app that allows you to upload a simple photo is the same one that administers the test that will help decide my child’s collegiate fate? How ironic. Just another in the long line of examples of what a sham the whole college admissions scheme is.
Photo submission 1/5
By the act is a scam
So not only do I have to take the picture through the app but the website says I could have used the app to upload a photo from my library. Where exactly do they expect me to do that?
Eh 🤷♂️ 3/5
I mean...I logged in, took my photo, it uploaded, and logged out. It did exactly what it said it would. It was a little annoying I couldn’t upload a photo I already took, but whatever. I’m sorry so many people are having trouble with it. But my experience was adequate
By Jamie of F&N
Unable to upload a photo from my phone using this app. It does not even give you an option and rushes through to the last part with a message saying You did not Upload a Photo. Well, I sure didn’t....because I was never given a choice. Poor platform for students relying on this to submit photo for test.
Poor Ap 1/5
By Lion Artist
Unable to get this Ap to upload a simple photo. Needs to be addressed.
Can’t upload photo, so change the basic description of what this app is on your site 1/5
App doesn’t let you upload photo...it lets you take a photo, which doesn’t help if you’re a guardian or parent completing registrations on behalf of students. This is absurd, it should be super simple to upload a photo from the site using a phone. Do I really want this institution judging my child’s college preparedness?
where does our money go? 1/5
laggy, slow, and old. where does our money go? i hope that it's going into better student accomodations and improvements in the overall testing facility, bc from what i've seen this is concerning. Yikes!
It worked (shockingly) 5/5
I don't know why so many people had issues with this app, but I found it was very easy to use and a quick way to take and upload a pic.
why do you need an app? why does this exist? why can you not give zero stars? why won’t she text me back?
There is a reason this app is rated so low 1/5
You can’t upload a picture from your camera roll in the app, even though the app says you can! I l’ve been trying to upload my picture for the past 20 min. but the site also says it’s down, without any prior warning! It has dates to when the site will be down and right now it isn’t within the timeframe. The SAT is WAYYYYYY easier to upload your photo. This is so frustrating.
What an unbelievable joke. 1/5
You guys seriously made a whole app for the sole purpose of uploading ONE picture. It’s almost comedic. Almost. Except for the fact that this made an already tedious process even more frustrating. Absurd.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By K St C
Don’t bother to download, the app would not access the camera so no picture could be taken.
This app is a waste of space on my phone with the purpose for it is setting a profile picture for your account. This could have been done on the website saving time and space for everyone.
Bad customer service bad app 1/5
Dealing with uploading a picture in order to take the ACT makes me seriously question the quality of the organization itself. A process that took two seconds on the SAT website. The ACT app and website do not explain that you can’t upload a pic from iPhone or iPad unless you have fox or chrome ( and having any IT people employed at ACT should be able to tell you why this is a problem!!!). I emailed questions to ACT last week and got no response except auto we’ll get back with you - which the customer service person on phone called a response. Customer service also said I was the first person to ever call about this - oh judging from these reviews, I think not!! Get it together ACT people. You expect customers, yes customers, to let your test be an arbitrator of intelligence and studiousness for college applicants? Maybe you should consider hiring a couple of them to design your crappy site and app. You’re making money hand over fist.
The process to register for the ACT online is awful. The website is awful. And you have to download this app to take one picture. It makes you wonder how accurate the testing and score process really is.
ACT Photo 1/5
This app does not work at all for me. It doesn’t give me an option to upload photos or to even take them. As someone who works in a school system and is trying to sign up multiple kids for the ACT/upload their photos, this is a very big issue for me. I can’t understand why ACT can’t resolve these issues and provide an actual functioning app, especially since you can no longer upload to their website 🙃
DOESNT LET YOU UPLOAD 1/5
This app doesn’t work. If the take a photo part wouldn’t work.
I did 1 star so people would realize what they are doing wrong 1/5
Click settings, scroll down to ACT Photo app and tap on it, click the slider to allow the app to access camera. Now the app will work as programmed. Hopefully I have spared you some lost hair over using this app. 🤙 Also you need to be patient; It takes a minute or two for it to upload. If you stop it you will have to take another photograph.
By park lovin
Hard to use and ineffective! Awful App!
WORST APP EVER!!!! 1/5
You can’t use photos in your camera roll. This app is USELESS!!!
This app doesn’t do what it says it’s supposed to what the heck. So dumb. Negative stars.😠🤢😷🥴
If you are going to develop an app solely for the purposes of uploading photos, it seems reasonable that users would be able to upload photos. But alas, that was too much to ask for.
I wish there was a 0 stars option 1/5
Not only is this app redundant and unnecessary but your website barely works and is outdated. Absolutely trash!! Glad to see how much you guys care by making an absolutely terrible system!
By that nickname is takenn
The app worked well and was very straight forward
ACT APP IS HORRIBLE 1/5
So I have an IPhone. To be able to register for the ACT, I had to download this app so I could upload my picture. I had a friend take a few of me, went home to upload my photo. It clearly says that you can either take a picture, or upload one from your camera roll.
WRONG! You can only take a picture, not choose one from the camera! Um and a selfie won’t work. So being that I was by myself, I could not upload the photo on my camera. Just a heads up for anyone else out there.
Useless and frustrating 1/5
This app is awful. It’s bad enough that I can’t upload a picture directly into my account on the website, but instead I had to download this app. But then I can’t even upload a picture from my photo library into the app! Nothing like giving students and parents more things to create anxiety in the college testing and search process!
Bug Maybe? 2/5
There seems to be a problem with the app. When I go in to upload a photo it skips over the photo taking part & immediately goes to the screen saying no photo was uploaded, log out. And my photo deadline is coming up.
By Unknown unmade!!!
I would have liked to give this 0 stars.
Photo won’t work 1/5
By ASAP ATTENTION
The photo option is not working as it only shows a blank black screen with option to revers and take picture but no camera view is showing to do so.
You made an app. Just for people to upload pictures. So you can keep a data farm. Government interference in college is making a mess of the system. And these people running the tests just wanna milk the profit. You’re not helping the poor kids by making it hard for them to even do these expensive tests.
