Access to scholarships? 2/5
Only a “free 3 day trial” then $44.95 a year. The reason people need scholarships is usually cause college students are broke and need help achieving their dreams. Why can’t it just be free?
Was excited to use but saw you had to pay for it... 1/5
I know it’s great and you get a lot for what you pay for. But the whole point of me getting an app like this is to search for a scholarship to help me pay for school. This is like a random expense in my budget and for you money savvy people out there, you know that every penny counts. Just disappointed. And I was too nervous to try it because I tend to forget when the subscription ends and don’t want my bank account to get overdrawn.
Shady to advertise as free when you have to immediately pay $45 to use it 1/5
I just downloaded the app to check it out and immediately after signing up, you can’t get past a splash screen to sign up for a $45 annual subscription with a seven day free trial. There’s no way you could reasonably figure out if this app is helpful within a week of use (scholarships take longer than that to be awarded), and it’s not worth the risk of losing that much money if you forget to cancel. The app description makes it sound like there is a free functionality and bonus features for the subscription price and that’s not the case.
App doesn’t work 2/5
Lucky for the trial because the App doesn’t work. I can’t get pass the first page.
Makes it easy to find scholarships 5/5
It’s only been a few weeks so I haven’t heard back from any scholarships yet, but Scholly makes it easy to apply to lots of scholarships. I’ve applied to over 15 and will be applying to more. Hopefully I win some lol.
I cancelled my subscription and it continued to take my money even after I cancelled. I have never won a scholarship and have been using it for two years now. I do not recommend unless you want to waste money, time, and happiness.
App issue 1/5
Nothing happens when I click on Scholarship Feed to see the list of matching scholarships. Please fix this.
Don’t bother if you’re not in high school 1/5
I am a 40-something mom going back to school after 20 years to finish my BA degree. We aren’t rich and I’ve maxed out my student loan qualification bc of too many credits. I was excited to try this app as I’m having a hard time finding scholarships for returning adult students and I was hoping this app could find scholarships in corners of the web that I couldn’t.
As it turns out, I will never know. The sign up process asks what year you are in high school. I am 25 years out of high school, and yet I couldn’t continue signing up until I chose a year. It gave me no other choices than those. I gave up after that as I don’t want to pay $45 to get matched with scholarships that are only for high school students.
What’s funny to me is that the sign up process also asks what kind of degree you’re seeking, including Master’s Degrees. I would be willing to bet that there are WAY more working adults going for Master’s degrees than there are kids just out of high school.
If you’re a returning adult student, find a better app and don’t waste you’re money on this one. So disappointing. 👎
IMPOSSIBLE TO CANCEL SUBSCRIPTION! 1/5
I have tried over & over to cancel this subscription. Scholly says to cancel thru iPhone subscriptions but iPhone says it has to be canceled thru Scholly! I am beyond frustrated & regret ever signing up for this rip off app!!!!!
Good Idea but not worth it 1/5
I loved the idea of this app. I have searched for scholarships and it’s frustrating. They had a great location to find tons of scholarships. I applied for over $80k and didn’t receive one reward. It’s. It their fault but I really do wonder if these scholarships are as rare as they make it seem.
DO NOT INSTALL 1/5
Scam. Claims you’ll have a three day FREE trail but when you sign up, there is an ‘error’. If you try again, it will charge you $45! NO FREE TRIAL. SCAM.
Stop Stealing Money. 1/5
By Doctor average
Y’all are taking people’s money in a slick way. You think you’re paying once but no, they take your money every month and raise the price without letting you know. Smh.
Use Fastweb instead folks.
Too expensive 2/5
For a poor college student looking for a scholarship, that subscription fee is cost prohibitive. This is how the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. I’m quite disappointed.
I like the design photos, but maybe have an ad version for the rest of us? I’d much rather have to scroll past an ad to see my scholarship results then pay $50 I don’t have. Thanks bro.
Scholarships shouldn’t cost money 2/5
Any company that asks you to pay money to apply for a scholarship is scamming you from what scholarships are for. This company is disgusting.
It’s $49.99! PER YEAR!! 1/5
I got the app because I needed money. When will Apple start making developers be transparent about costs?
What makes you think someone who is looking for a scholarship wants to pay a monthly fee just to be able to view scholarships.
I purchased this app 5 years ago when my oldest son was applying to college. I just tried accessing it again for my younger son and the purchase cannot be reinstated. Given that I paid and offered support before the developer made it big, they should honor original purchases and not force customer to pay $44.00 per year for something they already bought.
Ridiculous; hypocritical 1/5
When I first heard of this app from a friend I was ecstatic! I have tried so many different applications which aim to help match students with scholarships. I was drawn to the unique story and what seemed like a genuine effort to help students succeed.
However, upon downloading the app I was shocked and appalled to find that you must first pay $45 dollars for access to this service. This is ridiculous, first a story discussing the many struggles of students, in particular those with economic challenges, then an attempt to breach the gap for them and as it turns out it is yet another attempt to make money.
I am very disappointed.
I tried to use the app but couldn’t. I tried to put in my age or location but everything was blank so I gave up trying.
This app asks that you start a three day trial or pay over forty dollars a year for its service. The point of applying for scholarships is that you're in need of money - why would I pay to find & apply to them?? I'll be sticking to whatever I can find on my computer, thank you.
By Charity lover
you have to pay like $45 annually to use this but at least you get a free three day trial!!!! if you’re looking for something like this app but actually free try raiseme.
It’s a no for me 1/5
By Melanie 👑
An app that claims its free/ supposed to help students but before you can even see what the app is about it wants you to pay $44.99 for a year. I could’ve sworn the reason why people apply for scholarships is because they need financial help. Not offering monthly payments is definitely not helpful. This app is for the middle class or upper class. Also for people who have debit/credit or prepaid(?) cards. Btw The trial is only for three(3) days.
Don’t say it’s free if it’s not 1/5
Not free- membership required.
It’s ok to charge for an app- most of us pay for a few. But please let us know that it’s a subscription.
Not that it’s free with some “in-app purchases” when you’re required to pay for a membership. False advertising and reading the reviews below, most haven’t found any scholarships.
My Review (2019) 1/5
It keeps crashing once pressed on.
Paying to get access to scholarships??? 1/5
So this app charges $45/year to be able to access scholarships. The reason we apply for scholarships is because we need the financial help. The dumbest app.
NEVER pay for scholarship searches. There are so many free resources through your school or online that you should never have to pay to try and find scholarship money. You’re looking for scholarships bc you’re poor in the first place?!
Monthly subscription- doesn’t say in app purchases 1/5
It appears to be a free app but then requires a subscription. Yet isn’t listed as in app purchases when you go to download. Lacking transparency.
Have a bug 3/5
First: theres no help area or way to contact whoever to get help with an issue. I looked around and all I got was a FAQ page that didn’t have my issue.
Second: the app will not let me get padt putting in my extracurriculars! I go throught the list, checking any that apply, but it will not let me click “next” for some reason. I would like to increase my scholarship search by including LGBT advocacy and that I hike and such but the app will not let me!
Other than those two issues, a really good app. I hope I can get my issue solved soon.
i already paid 1/5
i already purchased this app and now i have to pay for it every year?
App Crashes will not Open 1/5
App will not open on my iPhone. I recently downloaded Scholly and it continuously crashes every time I attempt to open it.
This app costs $45 per year. How could a student needing scholarships afford that? Seems like a scam to me. Definitely not worth it when there are plenty of other free websites and counselors available to assist students for free.
Won’t even open 1/5
I was kinda excited to use this app but it won’t even open & ive deleted and reinstalled 4 times.
The app needs work 1/5
It won’t click next on some things. It fumbles around it’s central ui. Needs better polishing. Don’t sign up for the trial. It’s how they snag you.
App won’t even open 1/5
By Good Ol Tux
Running latest OS on iPhone XS. I hope a fix comes out soon.
By Avidius Cassius
I re-downloaded the app and created a new account. Little did I know, THERE IS A MASSIVE BLOODY PAYWALL. This is the first thing you see when you create an account. WHY DIDN'T I SEE THIS BEFORE I CREATED AN ACCOUNT? THERE WAS NO INDICATION OF A PAYWALL. Massive scam. They say “lets help you pay for college,” yet also offer a massive $44.99 paywall to even use the app immediately after creating an account. Even reading what it says here on the app store, the indication of such paywall is hard to find. The thing they do, however, which is incredibly misleading, is they display with incredible ambiguity the “free trial,” with absolutely no respect to a duration of time for which the trial lasts. When you are presented with the paywall in the app, it tells you the trial is three days long. How incredibly short a time for a trial. My situation can be best described by a quote from Vizzini, a character from the Princess Bride: “Inconceivable.”
I just signed up and deleted the app. 4/5
The app stated that it is free. However it’s not free. Only a 3 day trail. Please stated that is cost up front. I would not down load the app. Free means free all the time. Free trail explains that there is cost. It’s not cost of the free trail but the app misleading stated.
App seems predatory 1/5
The only first step you can take is to sign up, which requires that you give them an email address. The next step is to buy the service starting with a brief free trial. I'm not ready to do that and I feel deceived. It doesn't matter to me how good the paid service may be, I am angry that I gave them my email address before discovering that the only way to use this app is ultimately to pay for it. I wish they just charged for the app. My concern is that my email info will now be sold and distributed. Not a big deal just again not what I was expecting. The whole experience feels predatory.
when i try to start a payment , it says error everytime .
Support is very difficult to find. 1/5
Can anyone out there help me? Our trial period expired with being able to access. Now I am being charged $45 for the full version... which I would be ok with IF we could access any of the material. There is no place that can help with log in issues.
App keeps on crashing every time I open it. I’m on IOS 13 I’ve deleted and reinstalled multiple times
Crashes on iPhone Xr 2/5
By Ahmed Gelemli
I think it’s good application but it crashs on iPhone XR!
Can’t log in 1/5
I paid for the yearly subscription and it doesn’t let me log in it keeps saying “an error occurred” that I have to pay for the subscription but my iTunes account says I’m already subscribed.
Please check possible bug in profile view 2/5
Unable to save my profile information without the app crashing on an iPhone x running ios 13.1. Please check as I wanted to test this during my VERY limited trial period (3 days) to see whether this was great to keep or not.
I remember when it used to be $3 a month, which was great but now they do annual plans only. This makes no sense for people about to graduate. Scholly used to be a great resource for scholarships but now they’re money hungry. Don’t bother with it even when I had the monthly plan it wasn’t great. It could be so much better. It’s all based around you getting the annual plan now.
Another subscription rip off app 1/5
Yet another app with sketchy subscription setup. Download the “free” app. Prompted to put in your email address and create a password. Only then are you presented with a signup for $44.95. There is no option to continue unless you pay.
I thought Apple had rules for this?? Apparently not.
This app is a scam and rip off. All the information is available for free online through generic searches. They require additional steps beyond the app store to cancel your recurring charge. Stay away from these leeches. Im in dispute now to get my money back that they have been stealing. Scum of the earth.
It is not working 1/5
For my three day trial I loved this app, I had over 200,000 dollars in potential scholarship money. Then I bought the full version because I was in love. Now I cannot access my account everyone I try to sign in with the app it says, please subscribe and I press subscribe and it says I have already am subscribed and nothing else happens. When I tried to access the web page on my iPhone, which is updated to the most recent IOS and it is not letting me access my account. I subscribed initially I had a problem with the credit card but then fixed it and have pairs. I tried to email the scholly team using the link they provided but apparently my email was blocked. I will change this rating once this issue is resolved
Scholly respondes to this comment with email the scholly team, but I have sent them 5 emails and it did not send. It is not my email, since I have sent multiple emails since them. I am requesting a refund since this app can not aid me if this problem is not fixed.
Absolute scam. There’s no way to cancel the subscription in the app. I’m having to contact Apple now to correct the billing issue because I wasn’t able to cancel the sub in the first place.
Also, the only scholarship I applied for now emailes me every day asking if I want to take out a loan through them.
Rather have ads than pay $45 1/5
By Two thumbs way up!!!
This will fall on the creators deaf ears but the 3 day trial period is not enough time to receive any scholarships. The other apps “included” aren’t useful enough to justify the cost. Way to “pay it forward”. Deleted app ✌🏼...and now he’s building an empire on their backs...
