Needs work 1/5

The "driving" option doesn't account for when you're not driving. Therefore you're punished for being a passenger in someone's car while you're on the phone
Keeps crashing 1/5
By Can't watch videos
I haven’t been able to properly open the app in months
The idea of the app is great, however, the only food place it gives me coupons for is Jersey Mike’s. The other place I can go to is Redbox. There is no variety of places to go to.
Teacher Rewards crash the app 2/5
I love the idea and overall concept of this app. However, just as I was about to share this amazing app with my entire faculty, it turns out that when you try to use the teacher rewards function in the app, it crashes and doesn’t hope again. The only way to get the app back is to uninstall it and then reinstall it. I hope this glitch gets fixed soon as it is an awesome idea and would be great for our school.
Compatibility problems! 2/5
I agree with other reviewers that a lot of the rewards are pretty subpar, especially the clothing ones. It would be cool if you could follow the trend of “safe to save” and release location specific rewards. Also, on the iPhone XR, if I’m listening to Spotify with my phone locked, or I have another app open with my phone locked then the app now considers me to be distracted driving, even though my phone is locked.
Fix these things and we’re back to a 5-star app, otherwise, this app is soon to be deleted
LOVIN POCKET POINTS 5/5
The only problem is the low amount of stores that they have but beggars can’t be choosers!!
Title as in my username? 🤷♂️ or title of review... 5/5
By salty boiii
I love this app, I can earn coupons for not using my phone! I only give four starts because on the pictures before I downloaded the app it showed Chick-fil-a, but after I downloaded it I realized there wasn’t Chick-fil-a ☹️
Has potential... 3/5
The idea of this app seems great, but I’ve have several issues when I start a goal, then I get an alert telling me my “phone was locked for 12 seconds” when I hadn’t used it at all. Confused...
Also, it would be great if there were more free deals maybe??🤷🏻♀️
A great way to keep me off my phone
By A student who is a person
Pocket points is useful it seems to my brother so I downloaded it and my school is not on it . It’s a tad annoying because I been requesting to having my school because even if it’s a small school we have better test scores of San Diego. There are lots of schools that pocket points probably doesn’t have and if it wants to grow I suggest they add schools that aren’t just big high schools.
Food Option 3/5
I love the concept of the app and it is continuing to get better and better. Could you all please add a food category. I think college students would enjoy that because we collectively spend a lot of time looking for the food on the app. Other than that great job guys!!
Creative and great idea to motive people get off their phones. Wish there were more and better stores listed on the app to get deals. Other than that, no complaints!
Love ! 5/5
By I looooooooooooooooooovvvvvvve
Teachers at school use it and places around me have great stuff ! Worth it
Good idea, bad delivery 1/5
Bad rewards. Everything you redeem points for could be found for free online. I really want this to be a good app it’s just not. Get actual rewards
Where’s the map go!? 3/5
Decent app with some pretty good discounts, but the map that shows the local restaurants is a pretty important piece to the benefit of the app. I hope it comes back in an update soon.
Money Instead of Points 3/5
Overall, I like the idea but I feel like instead of deals and rewards, we got paid with actual money. For example, if we earned 50 points, we would get .50 cents. If you earned 100 points, you would get a $1. It would be better to spend that money on the stores and restaurants that they promote, instead of getting measly deals which still cost a lot of money.
Love it! 5/5
By Best EDI
This is amazing. I’m a senior in high school and this app has got me lots of stuff. I’m glad my sister showed me this. Truly amazing!!
Not working 2/5
When I first downloaded, it worked like a charm. I’d get the little notification telling me I was earning points and I’d be good to go. Now whenever I’m on campus or just trying to set a timer, I’ll open pocket points to the correct screen and press start or whatever. The green bar at the top appears telling me to lock my phone. Yet when I do, I get a notification to go back to the app so I don’t lose my points. When I open the back back up, it’ll always say I was locked for ___ seconds and earned like .02 points. What is the point of staying off your phone if I have to leave it on and tap it every minute or so to make sure it doesn’t stop giving me points? Right now my primary earner is the distracted driving. But I’d really like to know how to fix this?
I lost all my points and account!! 1/5
By angry !!!123
I used to use my Facebook to log in. Now since i got a new phone it won’t even give me an option to do so! It only asks for my number ! I had over 400 saved points and now I’m starting at zero
Chico student here disappointed 1/5
This app has changed a lot but the worst change was when they removed all the local rewards. Now the only thing you can earn is discounts in stores I would normally not buy from. Disappointed even more so since this app was first launched in Chico and has now evolved into this.
Great app! 5/5
By Peter B. Parker
You get points for not being in your phone what else could you ask for?! Very few times it’s not worked and I love it!
app won’t open anymore 1/5
i’ve downloaded this app three times now in hopes that i won’t be locked out again, but it happens every time. i start my account up, start the goal, and then when i leave again i cant open the app up. i thought maybe it was because i didnt finish the goal, but even after i knew i finished, it still wouldn’t open! the screen is white before it crashes. i really want to use this app but i CANT
Stealing time 1/5
By My name is hungry (thanks)
Whenever I start a goal witherI’m on campus or not, it just sets the end of the goal time 5 hours ahead of what it should be (i.e. sets 120 min goal at 2:00 AM, goal end time 11:00 AM) I don’t earn any points and it just makes me not want to use the app anymore.
By Essie James
I don’t usually review apps, but 10 min after downloading this one, I deleted it. The deals aren’t worth anything, I wouldn’t use any of them. Most of them are like “15% $50+ purchase” don’t waste your time.
They keep taking away rewards... 1/5
This app was great at the beginning of the fall semester of 2018. Now we can no longer group together with people in our class and earn more when everyone is collaborating with no phone usage. Also, the rewards that students on campus are using keep getting taken away and now I have no use for this app anymore. I used to stack up points so I could get free coffee any size at Starbucks but then they got stingy and made it a free grande iced lemonade in the winter time.... I can’t even drink that because of my dietary restrictions. They also had a free sandwich deal with Starbucks but they took that away too and replaced it with nothing. Any other deal is vaping and ecigs that appeal to college students that shouldn’t be doing that anyways. Super disappointed and uninstalling.
Good shut 5/5

Advertising vape pens to 12 year olds 1/5
Wow. Super disappointed in this app. Already slowed use due to not good deals, then they popped up an ad on my phone for a great deal, but on vape pens. Nice to know you could be advertising vape pens to 12 year olds. You can tell money speaks, but advertising to a user without the Health warnings.. shame on you guys. Hope you get sued by the FDA like everyone else.
Doesn’t work 1/5
I loved using this app last year as a freshman it helped keep me off my phone during class and made me pay attention so when I went back this fall semester I re-downloaded it on my phone. I was excited to start using it again only to find that it doesn’t work. Upon opening the app all I get is a blank white screen before it takes me back to my home screen. This keeps happening despite deleting and re-downloading the app.
Great idea, not well put together 3/5
It’s a wonderful idea. Who doesn’t want free stuff for not being on your phone? But the places that have coupons available are so few and far between, and the stuff that have coupons are mostly stuff I wouldn’t have bought in the first place. I’m keeping it because if I end up having to buy something that has a coupon from this app I can use it, but otherwise there’s no reason to stress about staying off your phone all the time to get as many points as you can. It’s just not worth the time.
Was good, getting worse 1/5
App use to be awesome however I feel like most of the rewards aren’t actually useful or a promo code for the same discount/promo code can be found online. What were once great rewards in my area seem to have become drastically limited. Use to go to smoothie king and get a free smoothie. Now a days that award is “fully redeemed” within hours of renewing.
Great app idea, useless or insignificant rewards.
More stores 4/5
I wish there were more branches of these stores that allowed Pocket Points. Take Chick-fil-A for example. I’m lucky that I live right by the ONLY Chick-fil-A that accepts this, but if I went to any other one, I could not use it.
App won’t open 1/5
I’ve been using pocket points for many years and it’s worked very well, especially at keeping me off my phone during class. However, about two weeks ago it stopped working. Any time I tried to open the app it would just flash a white screen and then crash. I’ve tried deleting and redownloading it but it still does the same thing. Please fix this issue.
App Doesn’t work half the time 1/5
I’ve been using this app for 3 years now, over 3 different generation of IPhones. Lately every time I try to use it on campus or off, I will set a goal follow the instructions and lock my phone. When I get on my phones hours later the app will say I didn’t earn any points. It’s really frustrating when I don’t use my phone for hours hoping to get some points and realize it didn’t give me any points.
great... but one problem 4/5
i got this app when i was in middle school but my school wasn’t in the server. now that i’m in high school i re-downloaded the app and i’m loving it! my school doesn’t have wifi so it’s super easy to stay off my phone and earn points! one thing though, whenever i purchase a deal, i am not getting the promo code sent to me. hopefully you can respond and help me figure out what the problem is. thanks!
it works 5/5
it actually works haha!
By all nicknames are taken tf
What’s not to love??
Free food 5/5
By another mixed person
You get free food sometimes. What’s better than free food?
Lame rewards 1/5
My friends told me to get this app since they use it to get free Chick-fil-A and pizza. But when I signed up they had the worst rewards. I don’t want 5% off on a brand I’ve never heard about. Keep trying pocket points, you’ll get there one day
Really good 5/5
I like it idk what to say
Free Chick Fil A ❤️ 5/5
Pocket points is a great way to be more focused in class and a pathway to free food and great coupons!
Good but... 4/5
I need more info beforehand on reward refresh periods
Repeated issues unresolved. 1/5
Ever since I got my new phone the app crashes immediately after opening it. I have deleted and redownloaded the app multiple times with no fix. I contacted customer service and they said they would look into the issue. Multiple updates have come out since then and I haven’t had any resolution.
The time is now off from the time zone your in and it won’t show how many points I’ve earned either I may stop using this app completely if you don’t fix anything on it and give more stores it’s cheating me out front using my phone.
Why does my friends have different places, stores than I do? Shouldn’t we all have the same?
More options 4/5
I love this app because it’s a great way to save money I just wish it had more options to choose from that were more useful.
By Literally no possible name
Every time i try to use this app the goal immediately fails and says I’ve only had my phone locked for 15 seconds (give or take a few) even though i set my phone on do not disturb and lock my screen immediately after setting my goal. Because i don’t pick up my phone, I’m essentially losing a lot of points because i can’t tell if my app is bugging or not
It’s a great way to get discounts with a benefit for both your studies and wallet
App keeps crashing 3/5
I love the idea for this app and I love the actual app until a few days ago. Every time I open the app it crashes. I have the newest update so there’s nothing I can do update-wise. Overall, great concept but I’d like to be able to open the app.
