Capitalism is dumb 1/5
By A relictant consumer
I don’t like that I am buying a subscription. That is dumb, if I was just paying for the tech I wouldn’t care as much, but they are betting on the fact that you NEED this app for school
Never works properly 1/5
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.
Forced me to pay for a subscription 1/5
By Marc Y. Liu
I’ve already subscribed but the app doesn’t recognize it. I had to pay for another six months. There was no way to restore purchases.
bad app do not get for your class 1/5
crashes frequently, freezes up, and makes me lose points from my grade. needs horizontal orientation feature if i could give it a 0.5 i would
Terrible for iPad 1/5
iClicker reef does not support the iPad. The app scales up and looks pixelated and hideous.
The app needs to support the iPad natively and support side-by-side/slide over for multitasking between the iClicker app and taking notes.
Huge disappointment considering how expensive this app is. Students deserve better for their money.
Always decides to fail in class making me loss points
Reef is an example of the scam of higher education. Why can’t we just use Kahoot and not pay $15 for this clown show
So hard to pay for
Force is a poor motivation to use an app. 1/5

Horrible but works just fine :)
By LaRue L
Best app ever
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.
Registered my remote and it still wants me to pay!! 2/5
In class, missed points because all of a sudden it wanted me to pay even though I registered my remote and there was no way around it!! 😭
WASTE OF MONEY$$$$ 1/5
If there was a 0 star, I would choose it. Waste of money and used for one tap attendance. Unneeded when you can easily take roll several other FREE WAYS. -10/10 do not recommend.

Can’t even get past creating a password
A review 1/5
Extremely expensive compared to the original. I’d recommend most professors go back to the I clicker2 system.
Waste of Money 1/5
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.
App crashes sometimes 2/5
By Mike Parunchaichayanon
Sometimes it crashes on me.
Won’t let me sign into class 1/5
Repeated times, I have been unable to login to my class, losing points every class.
Failure of location feature 1/5
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.
Junk app 1/5
Can never answer the first question my teacher posts because it takes forever to “join” in class, it will only let me in after I have already missed the first question. Piece of crap app, just buy the clicker
Now notification when subscription is up 2/5
It’s an ok app but it doesn’t tell you your subscription is up until you try to answer polls in class which is too late.
Please encourage teachers to use paper handouts instead of Iclicker... college students are broke
Great but not free 4/5
Works great but I wish they'd told me upfront that I would have to pay $14 or $15 after a couple weeks
Answers & time 3/5
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.
Someone is reefing these benefits 1/5
By whatcha wannamado
... and its not those that have to purchase/use it. The app constantly logs me off and even when teacher posts a question I always have to reset app to have it appear. The cost does not, at all, match the services. The app is not worth it and i have had other professors use similar programs/apps that do the same thing for free.
Quits out. VERY Annoying 1/5
By Subway Supreme
I’ve missed a good amount of points because the app quits out on me during class. My professor isn’t very understanding. I’d recommend to be safe and buy the iClicker remote to avoid this.
STUDY GIFT FROM ABOVE 5/5
Reef helps me be able to study questions I never would be able to. It’s amazing to use in class.
I love the app but needs landscape iPad support as well. 4/5
In class, I use this app on an iPad, and I wish that this app has landscape orientation support.
Froze during class and I missed my questions for my quiz
I love the app, very responsive. Quick responses as well. Not that expensive, which is $15 for 6 months. Good app all around
Very Disappointed 1/5
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.
This app is very slow in case of taking response for in class questions. Answering the questions are still not recorded and you have to try 4-5 times to get a response. Isn’t reliable!!!!
Quiz 1 3/5
By Raven Canionero
I was not able to change some of my answers because the quiz froze.
By I want rewards
I hate when apps continually ask for reviews. App is a little slow and continually logs you out, making it hard to fully participate in class.
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.
You should not need to pay for something like this especially when it is required for a class 1/5
Should be free
Doesn’t load on time 1/5
Please don’t 5/5
This expiring thing is dumb I don’t want to pay 15 dollars for my 1 class that uses it.
Why would you be so expensive for a useless app 1/5
What a scam
Cool app 5/5
It’s like the floor is lava game but instead of lava it’s my sanity and I’m dressed in a purple pink gimpsuite
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.
A lot of the times it has a hard time connecting
By Victoria Hyman
Reef has crashed on several occasions and, despite attending every single class, says that I’ve missed five or six days. Don’t bother with it. Just get an iClicker.
Can’t log in 1/5
By Jazz quest 87
It constantly tells me im not at the location of my class but I am in class. I delete the app and re add it, refresh my locations, and make sure my locations is on at all times and it still doesn’t work. It’s not very day but at least once a week this happens.
Aarti does not like this application.
No option to redeem codes 4/5
Great app that saves money and makes it easy to use in class. However when asked to Renew, you can only repurchase a subscription. If you have a code to redeem for a subscription, it can’t be done on the app.
This app makes me miserable every Mwf morning from 10-12
