Five Star app reviews

  • Needs Improvement! 2/5

    By lizgl88
    Whenever I try to scan it never works with the brackets! Otherwise it would be a good app.
  • Doesn’t make flash cards 1/5

    By Odiethedog4
    First all the notebooks that have the sheet advertising the app don’t all work with the app. Only ones that have QR codes inside but it doesn’t say if they do or not when you buy them. It gets even worse though when the do have it and you scan them in it doesn’t make flash cards for you. You just get little pictures of parts of your notes and you have to put what would be on the other side. I would not suggest the app or buying the notebooks.
  • Good app, only one issue… 5/5

    By Aburt25
    Im actually quite impressed of how well this app works, and how i can easily scan all my math homework into google drive. There is one minor problem though, sometimes the holes in the side of the paper are picked up as if one of those triangles are filled in, which makes a flashcard. No big deal, i can just delete that, but it may be annoying for some people.
  • Awesome App! 4/5

    By TyWar92
    This is great, the scanning feature works great, taking pictures for things that aren’t in a Five Star notebook is equally great! I would like to see the ability to add tags and typed notes to scanned files, that would be a huge benefit for someone taking notes for an extended period of time (like a semester or school year) so they could spend less time digging and more time reviewing the notes they need!
  • Glitch? 3/5

    By petania_sui
    When ever I would try to take a picture of my notes it would instantly go to my Home Screen and not take the picture.
  • Pretty good 5/5

    By Alex 35);;?)
    Makes studying flash cards easier!
  • Scanning Feature 1/5

    By MKTis Superkool
    As a High School student I really need notes saved out for the future for studying. But the scanning feature is the thing what pisses me the **** off. I can’t scan the thing without the app saying “hmm….” And I get annoyed bc I tried my best to scan the notes I want saved but it won’t let me scan the notes I want. Update your **** please
  • Flash cards 2/5

    By joe mommie :)
    I wish I could zome in when editing flash cards
  • Good but needs work 3/5

    By sjjskaoa
    Amazing idea and for the most part functional. Very good if you forget notes on a test day or need a quick study without unpacking your backpack to find it. On the other hand it is very hard to get it to scan. It could be improved and down right should be improved but everything else is there. I’d recommend.
  • Amazing but there are some issues. 4/5

    By Tamasha k
    I love this app! It’s so convenient and the flash cards are so helpful! I also love the feature where you can scan your notes and make them into flash cards. However, I came across one issue/ one thing you could add. I thought this app had an area where you can just scan your notes and keep them. Also, whenever I tried to scan my notes and make them regular notes, they always turn to flash cards. Other then that, this app is great!!! I definitely recommend this! :)
  • Doesn’t work on iPad 3/5

    By BickSci
    I love this app and the integration of pencil/paper with technology! I am a teacher with students in my classroom that are one to one with iPads. I can NOT get this app to work on the iPad. We have a no cell phone use policy in our district, so I can not use this app. I would love to use this in my classroom and know many teacher would love to use it also. PLEASE consider an update to allow use on iPads.
  • On to something special 5/5

    By Agent619
    You guys are on the right track. Keep up the great work. Lots of love definitely went into the development of this app. I found this notebook at Walmart and got curious about the app. I already was impressed with the folder and thought the arrows were useful for easy to highlight notes! But they actually serve an even greater purpose with the built in camera flash card maker. I like the animation it shows when your done studying and I like that we can store notes into note books. The study mode is pretty straight forward. I would like to see a pattern mode where let’s say you can’t progress until you successfully study pile A correctly under let’s say condition of 0 misses. Before moving to pile B of the same deck. Basically like how a relay race is ran. I want to run each leg of my deck successfully 3 times before passing the baton to the next leg of my study. I think you guys are doing great work bridging tech and paper.
  • Does not scan and camera keeps crashing 1/5

    By Lanegang224
    I just got the app today and I tried scanning but it failed to pick anything up. I tried using the camera feature but it just kept crashing. I would like if this app actually functioned because if it did this would be a really useful app. Unfortunately it doesn’t work.
  • Amazing 4/5

    By santosrl
    I love this app so much the only thing is I wish there was a way to break each notebook into chapters
  • please help 5/5

    By qwertykilano
    hello have been using your app for one hour and I have already experienced bugs you need to update this right now because it’s unacceptable that I didn’t even install it like two hours ago and you’re already failing me. whenever I would scan something it would go and it would like bring the demon inside my phone and I don’t need that I don’t need this bus driver energy right here so please install please update this and thank you very much because I really need this and I’m not looking forward to CY for no reason that you could not be updating this unacceptable with capital letter Siri, i use the iphone 11 and whenever i used to try to scan the page, it would shutter randomly black and white on and off and it would freeze and crash. but it seems like this bug is fixed. if not, please check.
  • Good app 5/5

    By Cdog199
    You should add an update where it takes handwriting and converts it to text
  • Working Good 4/5

    By sydatron2000
    I think the app is really helpful but through my college they use Outlook. I would enjoy if there was an option to link through outlook and OneNote
  • Neat but definitely needs work 3/5

    By Fyshsticl
    The flash card feature worked very well for me and the biggest advantage that needs to be implemented is the set feature. For me the notebook would be most useful to keep notes from each class in their respective unit but I can’t do that all the note pages go to one place and I don’t want to have to make a new class for every single unit/topic for the same class. I hope this makes sense as I really enjoy this app and I would really love to use it every day but I can’t when either all my notes would be mixed or I had too many class folders set up.
  • Scanning 5/5

    By kawaiipuppef
    I want this app to do well so bad because it’s a great concept, but when I go to scan my notes, the images come back too blurry or too bright and it can’t pick up my pen’s ink.
  • The scanning 3/5

    By ilovesos101011
    I was really excited about the Note boom but the scanning is not working. I tried everything just don’t work.😕
  • frustrating 1/5

    By OkokokokokokLLL
    Was excited to use the app but it doesn’t work well. There seems to be no iPad version of the app so the size and formatting is terrible. Also, most of my pages don’t scan. I have a whole notebook of notes I was hoping to put in but it takes a very long time and often the page won’t scan. The pages aren’t wrinkled or dirty so I don’t know why they aren’t recognized. Super disappointed.
  • Not scanning 3/5

    By maria0118
    I am using my 5 star note book that specifically for this app and the codes at the corners do not want to scan no matter what I do 😔
  • Great for a Newer App! 4/5

    By macylt19
    Very easy to learn how to use. My only complaint is that it’s difficult to make flash cards if you’re writing out definitions. You would need to write the term on one line and the definition on the next line in order for this to work! Overall, it’s a great app and will be extremely useful!!
  • It’s ok 5/5

    By clxdy-girl
    Ok so first off I gave it five stars so u could see my review.and second why dose it have to be college rule because kid in elementary school middle school take notes as well as people in high school and in college so could u pls make the product in other grades and one more thing could u try and make the scanning easier? Like I’ve spent all the time on this app just trying to scan my notes
  • AMAZING 5/5

    By jhhkfkr
    very nice very good amazing app would buy more of these notebooks again after all of mine are filled up❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
  • Scanning? 3/5

    By jgirl60
    I really liked this app at first and I still do, but the scanning all the sudden just isn’t doing it. No matter what lighting I’m in now it just doesn’t work. Also the corner markers are always in the brackets and I followed that stuff for if the scanning doesn’t work but I still doesn’t work Idk maybe I’m actually just doing something wrong though.
  • good !! 5/5

    By very amazed human
    i love this app and it slays but they need to make custom colours bc i need yellow
  • Perfect for AP class notes 5/5

    By Didi.21
    This helps me stay super organized and on top of things! I’ve definitely never have been a naturally organized person but this really sure does help! <33
  • Add Yellow!! 5/5

    By ReesedaBeast3
    Love the app so far! Only complaint is that there isn’t an option for a yellow notebook. Please add!!
  • 👍🏼 5/5

    By Morg Sch
    Great idea, though I wish white was a color option for notebooks :(
  • Great app, just a couple improvements needed 1/5

    By Nathan0953
    I love the entire app and the overall concept of it; however, when scanning my notebook, my notes do not come back clear. This happens with and without flash on. For some reason I can barely read my notes. Once issue is fixed, it will become ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
  • Perfect for Dungeons and Dragons 4/5

    By Greygoose1402
    I play dungeon and dragons and I’m The Dungeon Master for my group. I was shopping with my daughter and noticed this app on the front of the Five Star Notebook. I’ve used it for a few sessions. And I think 5 star really has an avenue they should pursue!!!! Notebooks and Dnd go together like peanut butter and Jelly. It’s the perfect balance between written notes and digital storage. Love the idea of creating flash cards and storing notes. Great for creating a digital version of what I write down. Nice to go back to my notes and review through them and it’s all stored! I would like to see a few items that could be modified. 1. Shareable flash cards. Create a link that allows people to use created flash cards. This would be great for teachers. For me, I’d use it for my players. This is a really incredible app and a neat idea. Great job to Five Star for this.
  • Difficult 3/5

    By Marley0823
    It is really difficult to get the brackets perfectly positioned. I wish we could move them around on the screen to get it to fit the paper quicker.
  • helpful 4/5

    By sophia flaverhadden
    very easy to use and practical, my only critique is that the scanner is really bad at picking up highlighter color because the pictures get really over exposed. I would suggest for the makers of this app to implement a way to edit the lighting of the scans so that highlights come through in case notes are color coded.
  • Scanning Feature bad 1/5

    By Squidnugget12463
    I downloaded to scan my notes faster. With or without flash it is super whitewashed and blurry and I can’t read my notes. Very unhelpful. Edit button does nothing.
  • Game changer 5/5

    By abx.42
    Thank you for making this app
  • Minor Bug 5/5

    By Bleedinghrt
    The app is great, except for one issue: Whenever I try to move notecards to a new set, the screen goes entirely gray. I hope they resolve this issue.
  • Crashes as soon as it’s opened 1/5

    By Nickname done right
    Repeats continually, don’t know why, have restarted my phone and redownloded app to no avail, will fix rating when it works
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By Olson_K
    I tried putting the brackets in the QR codes and it didn’t scan. So disappointing
  • good but scanner isn’t working anymore 4/5

    By cbr7579
    this helped me study a lot but the scanning option to scan my notes isn’t working anymore :/
  • None of the features I need 1/5

    By Bobsunscreen
    Overall, for my purposes at least, Five Star is pretty unhelpful. Below are the two features that would’ve made this app worthwhile: - Use OCR to digitize notes so that they are searchable and to create flashcards (tiny images are hard to read - it would be more helpful if Five Star mirrored Quizlet’s document scanning tool) - Add a learning mode in addition to flashcards where you write out the answer to each term - Get good PDF quality like something like Scannable so notes are actually legible
  • Love it, but… 4/5

    By Bekah Forrette
    I just got this app and I absolutely love it so far. The only thing I wish is that it would keep the color on the page like when I highlight things on the page myself when doing notes in school!
