Love it 5/5
It’s the best thing ever I can save on stuff just to get off me phone (yes please) but here’s the thing I wish there was more stuff like gas or grocery stuff to be honest but otherwise it’s great
The developers should add middle schools
More things to earn 4/5
By CaptainSpace Penguin
Get a footlocker sponsorship and I’ll never go on my phone again.
Great as a teacher and a student! 5/5
By Erin Allen
I use this in my classes and have seen it help A LOT with cell phone distractions. I also like using it myself when I need to be focused on something or just need time away from my phone. The drive points are also great!
I love it 5/5
Awesome, just got extra food for free
My issue with pocket points 1/5
The idea and overall theme of the app is great. The two things that I strongly dislike is that the on campus mode does not even work and goal mode has a limit to how much you can earn at once. You have to continuously get on your phone to reset it. If these two things were fixed I would probably rate this app 4-5 stars.
Not detecting I'm at school 3/5
My teacher has signed up for the app and I joined her class but the app doesn't detect that I am at the school when I am.
It Rocks! 5/5
I’m a Chico State student, so I love using this product because my fellow alumni created it.
My classmates and I make a game out of how many points can you farm in a day. Then of course there is the obvious benefits of using those points on all sorts of goodies, like how I get free fries!!!
Really nice! 5/5
There used to be some bug where it wouldn’t work after I locked my phone, but it’s fixed now and works well! The goal function is also great because it’s kind of more worth(?) the longer you set your goal to.
App is now terrible 1/5
At first they had great deals around me, now it is just garbage. They removed the best deals and there’s no point in having this app any longer.
Has potential... 3/5
I think the idea behind this app is super cool. It’s fairly easy to use and collect points, especially with campus mode, and fun to compete against friends. But... there’s nothing I really want to cash my points out on. Nothing is really worth it unless I want to go out of my way to buy something.
Overall, a pretty good app
Can’t store purchases 1/5
By preferred store
I redeemed points for a purchase. I exited out of the purchase because in the old version your could go back and view what you had. Wasted points on nothing because there’s nowhere in the app that you can view what your purchase was.
Ok, just not developed enough 3/5
This app is great! The concept is very helpful for students. I learned about this through a teacher who wanted us all to do it. I thought it was a great idea, because I have no problem with staying off my phone in class, and now I get rewarded for it. The problem is, once you earn a bunch of points, like I have, there is not enough places to spend it. I go to/use only one of all of these place (Moe’s), and I would definitely like to see that change. This game definitely targets stereotypical teenagers, because I haven’t even heard of half the stuff on there. In the end, they need to expand there quantity of stores by a bunch. If someone from development actually reads this, please try to add more free stuff and less discounts to things. Don’t add any more clothing stores. PLEASE!
I try to cash in my rewards and the cashiers don’t even know what it is they can’t scan it because there’s no bar code so anyone can make a reward saying free drink don’t use this app the rewards are not even good and they don’t work!
pocket points 5/5
helps me stay off my phone
The pocket points app is very useful helps us study and eat something for free after ur tired. But the options in it are partial towards Non vegetarian. Vegan’s have no option on chick fill A, which is the nearest restaurant the USC students can find. Please include some veggie burgers in the free options
Needs a lot of work 1/5
By Nazi Mike
I downloaded this app hoping that it would help me stay off my phone in class to earn deals on the things they offer. I never really had a problem with my phone being distracting but I soon found that the app was very buggy. When I run the app off screen and on campus, it wouldn’t time me for the length that I’ve been off my phone. I would be off my phone for close to 3 hours and it would say that I had my screen off for less than a minute. I tried contacting the help center on the app and I wouldn’t receive any help for days, and when I did get a response, they would ask the same questions over and over again. I soon found that this app has become more trouble than its worth.
Am I the only one having this issue? 1/5
Tried to use goal mode... was off my phone for 3 hours, checked, received 0 points. The app also isn’t registering when I lock my phone. The 5 hours I spent studying yesterday (don’t get me wrong, I definitely benefitted from having not used my phone) I didn’t receive a single point (well technically 0.8 — no joke). Tried reaching out to the help center. No response. This app seems like a total bust. Good concept, doesn’t work (for me). From other reviews, it seems like they’ve messed up with their newest update. Hate when developers lose touch with what got them started smh.
MS version? 4/5
Are there any plans for a Middle School version? We have a lot of the same issues! It would be awesome for students to earn pints for keeping their phone in their locker all day...maybe points for no motion between the start of the school day and the end?
I love it
Pretty great study thing 4/5
Great for studying but wish it had deals closer to me like in Albany
Login still not working 1/5
No option to login using a previous username and password. The verification code using your phone number never gets sent.
By Charlie Br0wn
Used it but had to delete it because the rewards wouldn’t load. After re-downloading to sign up again the conformation code won’t send to my phone (tried with and without WiFi on my iPhone multiple times). Overall just a big, irritating headache.
Okay just a bad app now 1/5
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 from using my phone. Also the driving point is not working I’m either a passenger or on a bus and it still asking if I’m driving when I’m not ugh stupid app to begin with and I won’t recommend it unless it’s gives better rewards and the time on the clock is fixed.
Pocket bois 5/5
So simple. Put phone down get discount.
It’s greaaaaat 5/5
UPDATE YOUR APP SO IT DOESN’T KEEP CRASHING 1/5
App crashes upon opening. Every time. Useless without an update.
Great concept but rewards are bad 2/5
By Wesam Hindi
Literally the rewards are anything you find on google.
crashes every time i open it
Pretty much just free money! 👌
Pocket Points 5/5
I love this app! What is better then getting free stuff for just being off you phone!
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.
Everytime I try to open it at school it immediately kicks me out. Sometimes the app won’t even allow me to open it.
I really like the concept of this app. It’s very easy to use and it has done a great job of getting me off my phone. However when it comes to spending points, I am just a student, like most other people and as snooty as this may sound.. I want free stuff! I don’t want to spend just a couple points on 10% off of some overpriced store, I want to save up my points and get things for free.
It’s not good 1/5
The coupons don’t even work and it only times you for like 30 min when you can go more time
End Time 3/5
By Time and challenges
The app is GREAT! I don’t get how you do it and how you have such an AWESOME IDEA. The only problem is that when you set a goal for one hour (example) at 5:00pm it should say that the end time is 6:00pm but instead it goes all the way to like 12:00am and that throws off the amount of points you get. When I should be getting 30 I instead get 0. I may be wrong because I’m new with the app but from what I know that is whats happening to me.
love it 5/5
I love pocket points because I get free Chick-fil-A
It’s not working.. 1/5
I downloaded this app a year ago, then I deleted it because it’s not working (you cannot open the app: when you tap it, there is a white screen and after a few seconds it directs you to your iPhone’s main page)
Does not work on IPhone 6s 1/5
The app crashes every-time I try to turn it on. I tried deleting and reloading the app but it doesn’t work. Would not recommend until they fix the problem.
Add a option in settings to be able to change ur name. I spelled my name wrong and now im stuck with it.
Broken lock mechanism 1/5
I love the app however when i set a goal and lock my phone it says get back to pocket points to earn points. So the lock is not working. Even when I try screen timeout it does the same. Sad!
Life saver and brilliant idea 5/5
By Titus Schultz
Seems like one of those scam apps but I've been using it for months and it's a really easy way to get free food and other stuff. It's really easy to earn enough points for free food and I love it.
This app has inspired me to spend more time in the real world and less time on my phone.
Needs work 1/5
By The Truth...©
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
