YALL NEED TO FIX YOUR APP BECAUSE ITS TWEAKIN. PERIODT.
the update screwed everyone over
I just updated this app yesterday and now it won’t let me open it, it closes itself
Will not even open. 1/5
I downloaded this app to show to my teacher as I thought it would be a good incentive for students to earn bonus points, or to get a deadline extension. But I can’t even open the app on my iPhone 7 Plus. Hope it gets fixed by next school year.
Locked up/frozen app 2/5
By pointless points
Used to work fine but all of a sudden, cannot get this app to do anything at all.
It used to work 1/5
It randomly started kicking me out of the app It doesn’t let me open it and I’ve deleted the app and downloaded again a few times and it still won’t work.
Improve stores to get discounts 4/5
By Adrianna Simovski
This app is easy to use and it’s fun. But if im not on my phone and I’m getting points from it. I would like at use it at stores where I shop. Ex:Hollister, Forever 21, Pink, Lush. I would like to see more stores in the app.
App keeps crashing
Latest update was a joke 3/5
This was a great app but ever since the latest recent update, I cannot get it to work at all.
This new update that you added isn’t working for me, every time I open the app, it turns just blank white and closes, I tried restarting my iPhone, nothing worked I have a iPhone 8Plus, is there a bug with the update ?
Keeps telling me to update 2/5
I like using the app but after the update it keeps asking for an update please fix. I wish there are more stores to use points. I wish there is a list of participants instead of list looking through them on a search bar.
By Ubiquitous Omnipresent Entity
After the update I installed today, when I enter the app, it asks me to install the latest update, update 30100, and if I take the link, the App Store tells me what I already know, that it’s already installed. Hopefully this is just something that they have set to go off for today to ensure that everyone gets the app, but it is getting rather annoying.
The whole “earning points for discounts and coupons” is awesome, but I wish there were more popular options for locations to use these discounts.
Great app 5/5
This app helps me stay off my phone, but also rewards me for it! I wish they had some more popular places to redeem the points & I think it could be really big if they did that- but love this app! It’s made a few of my friends competitive to see who can stay off their phone the longest, which is just what this generation needs!
Selling our info 😡 1/5
I received a push notification today spamming me for a Mother’s Day Flower coupon. This wasn’t a reward, just an ad. This is totally against Apple policies and should be reported. Selling out students for push notifications and saying it’s to help tech addiction is just super low. For shame.
By Nicole Abraham
A couple of my friends got this app and told me to get it. The first time I went on it, it lets me sign up and stuff and then when I tried to look around the app a bit, the screen turned white for like 5 seconds and then went to my home screen. Every time I go on it it does this, I’ve reset my phone and deleted and redownloaded to so many tines and it stills does the same thing. I really want to use this app but every time i try it just shuts off. plz fix it.
Won’t stop crashing 2/5
I’ve had pocket points for a long time and have never had problems with it until these last couple of months. I can delete the app then log back in and it works but as soon as I exit, I can’t get back in. It crashes every single time.
Please fix this!
4 stars 4/5
Love the free pizza
More places options 4/5
I feel like u should make coupons available at more places that are bigger brands also.
Not what you think 1/5
This app is not completely accurate. I tried a Panera in my home town when it said on the app it was accepted there and then I went to pay and they said we’ve never heard of such a thing. They refused to take it because there was no scanning option or feature to apply the discount. I sent an email to the company and they said they would refund me the points I lost from “purchasing” the coupon but I never received any points back. It makes me skeptical about this app so be weary.

For some reason my discount for vineyard vines is not working
Great but I wish more 5/5
It really help me stay off my phone but sometimes I wish that it had other ‘coupons’ or discounts I think it might interest more people and want to make more other people us the app.
Good idea, mediocre execution 4/5
It’s an excellent idea to keep people off their phones. The goal setting or counting how many minutes you aren’t on your phone is brilliant. However, the reward system is pretty limited, doesn’t do much, and it only uses a few points. It doesn’t fully encourage increased time off your phone, which is the point. It looks like they’re getting better, but maybe a few things that are free or close to it for more points would be better because I would have something to reach for.
Lost coupons 3/5
The app itself is cool and I planned on using it with my students in school to encourage them to keep their phones away. However, it’s not very user-friendly. While I was testing it out before I pilot it with them, I “purchased” a coupon with my points, but the coupon has since disappeared. If it were a little more user-friendly, it would be 5/5!
Easy, free money!! 5/5
As a student, having available discounts just for not using your phone during class and while driving is so great. Thanks so much for adding a ton of vendors and restaurants!
This is hands down one of the best apps i’ve ever downloaded. Whenever i walk into 1st period i’m always using my phone but with Pocket Points, the app makes me not use my phone at all anymore during class. You would think it’s fake or something but i didn’t spend a single penny on chick fil a and all those coupons for everything else is real. I recommend the app for everyone, especially if you use your phone a lot in class.
This is a good app 5/5
I was able to use it in getting a discount on a hotel and an airplane ticket
good value 5/5
By Hairy Ma
Good discount and good deal near campus
App doesn’t work 1/5
I set a goal, lock my phone and set it aside. Tells me I failed to meet it when I didn’t even touch it. The passive point generation also doesn’t seem to be working.
Needs more participating businesses! 4/5
I love the concept and highly encourage anyone to join pocket points, but i wish more businesses were involved around more colleges. It would really motivate students to stay off their phones if they could use their points on nearby franchises.
Needs better rewards. 1/5
The app feels pointless without better rewards. Many of us are students, and don’t have $30, $90, $100+ to spend on stuff, just to get a few dollars off. It seems unfair and stupid at that point.
Need better rewards.
Keeps Crashing! 1/5
I love the idea of this app and want to be able to use it. I’ve heard great things. But whenever I try to open it it crashes so I can’t even get on the app to open it or be able to collect my points! Real disappointment. Hope they can fix this soon, so I can actually use the app.
Good discouts-false advertisement 3/5
I was trying to get some airpods from chill...because i seen it in the picture i go to the website its not even there...but great way to get freepizza
I got screwed over 5/5
I thought this app was really cool and was a great opportunity to earn something for staying off my phone, but when I actually tried to use the points I've built on a reward, I got screwed, it didn't work and I lost all my points
(Edit) They were totally nice and gave me my points back! This is a great app!
Good student discount 5/5
Motivates you to do what you already should be doing and rewards you for it! Good deal.
Great App! 5/5
This app has not only gotten me off of my phone but also I’ve gotten free food out of it! (Which is nice because I’m a college student) is definitely recommend this app to anyone! The only thing is I wish there were more options for rewards just because a lot of them I wouldn’t use! Other than that this app is fantastic!
Love it. Great way to save money
I just want to earn extra credit points in my math class but the app won’t stop crashing. I’ve deleted the app and redownloaded it and nothing changed. Please update the app and fix the crashes.
There aren’t any rewards that students can take advantage of 1/5
Pocket Points seemed like a great idea! But there aren’t any rewards that any of my students have interest in. The only thing we have for food is a pizza place, and a Jersey Mike’s. Please update and add more food places. I.E. Chick Fil A, Canes, McDonalds
Why not middle school??? 1/5
Lately my school has had a tough time with students and phones. I was excited to implement this for my middle schoolers. Why is this not available for middle school? My students were very interested in using this app and disappointed when I told them it was a no go. Hopefully this will change.
Overall, my experience with this app has been fairly good. It is a cool concept and actually works, allowing me to stay off my phone while competing with friends. However, two big complaints I have (hence only four stars) is the fact that the app logs my “distracted driving time” while I am just a passenger and reduces my total points. There also is little incentive as there are few rewards which are actually relevant to me (more food and trendier clothing shops would be nice) and it is difficult to find any rewards local to my area or while I’m out of town. Besides that, I think the app is based on a cool concept and executes it well.
App won’t open :( 1/5
My class is using this as a way to earn extra credit by not using your phone during lecture, however, every time I try to open the app, it doesn’t load and closes itself.
Not knowing how to use it 3/5
I accidentally hit approve on the chick fil la coupon and lost 300 points which are really hard to get
I get hits on distracted driving when my phone is in my pocket the whole time. My phone is always in my pocket or purse and on silent when I drive. And it hits you in distracted driving points when you are the passenger. That needs to be fixed.
Proven Savings 5/5
I have been using Pocket Points since 2015, and I have been extremely impressed by the continual savings and offerings that Pocket Points has provided me. As a college student, finding deals is a lifestyle; finding deals on food is a necessity. Pocket Points has allowed me to eat at all the spots that I love in my town without having to empty my wallet. Excellent app!
I love the idea, but every time I open it, out crashes?? Just gives me a white screen. I’ve tried to fix it but 🤷🏽♂️
