App Reviews

  • Terrible app for students TOTAL SCAM!

    By Dr. Yan Itor
    I have a lot of professors who buy into tophat and force us to use it for in class quizzes. It seems easy enough on the professors’ end but for the students using their phones it is total garbage. It works like an endless string of popup windows and notification banners every time the professor opens a quiz. The lag is terrible and the submit button doesn’t always work. It won’t stop opening a banner letting me know I’ve been marked present every other question. I have to exit out just to get to the next question. There is not anyway for the student to turn off the constant pop ups. Piazza is a much better app for students. Further more they like to lock up your account and charge hidden fees mid semester! That is the definition of extortion!
  • TOPHAT system doesn’t work!!!!!!!

    By college student anonymous
    Why the heck am I paying so much for a stupid app? I had a question that I pretty chose the right answer but system would let me pick it. Told me that I had submitted my answer when in reality I haven’t. This is not me being careless and submit the answer. I logged out and when I logged in again the next day. Magically, the app just didn’t let me choose my right answer. Talked to professor but professor couldn’t confirm so she can’t give points. She can only see my last answer. What a bogus app. This company is a joke. I bet they give sponsor to professors to make students pay for more to study. Evil education scheme. Be warned!!!!! DO NOT TAKE PROFESSORS WHO USE TOP HAT!!!! It’s a waste of YOUR MONEY AND YOUR TIME!!! Blackboard is free and is much better!!!!!
  • A hip class structure with no functionality.

    By Horace06
    If you have a crippling case of FOMO then this is for you, however If you don’t then you will ultimately find this application/service pointless. Schools and universities without an integrated web platform may get some use out of this, but for those who already have one, this is just another worthless service to add on top of your schools online platform. Almost no functionality on any mobile devices; the interface is less inspiring than MS DOS. File previews don’t exist. The instructors and TAs are either technologically illiterate (unlikely), or this program is about as user friendly as an etch-a-sketch. This product is not ready to be something a student is required to pay for. It’s basically in the pre alpha development stage. I would be willing to pay another 28 dollars to not have to use this for the rest of the semester. I wish I could have rated it one star, but Tophat isn’t even inspiring enough to warrant that much rage or disgust. Mediocre garbage.
  • Due dates taken off

    By Kmblljkmy
    Pretty aggravated they did away with due dates. I could see the due dates on my phone up until about a week, maybe 2 weeks ago. I thought my professor took the due dates off since we were so behind. Had no clue that Tophat took them down. 2 late assignments later and I figure out what the problem is. Not real happy about this at all! What’s the point of paying for this app if it’s only going to be halfassed?? The point of the app is so you don’t have to log in online every time. Sure would be nice if this was fixed and due dates were put back on there.
  • Location symbol wont go away because of this app

    By Ironik1989
    I always had my tophat locations settings”always on”. However, in the past couple days, its been collecting my location even when I'm not using the app which is why I was having the location symbol all the time. I had to disable the location for every app I had to find which one was causing the location symbol to appear and tophat was the cause. I changed the location preference to “while using” and that made the location symbol go away. I wonder why your app is collecting my location even though I wasn't using the app?
  • Good

    By Satan 😈😘💋
    I mean it’s required by my professor but I had no problem with the app. I don’t like I had to pay for it even if it’s something just used for attendance and answer a few questions throughout the lecture. Btw if you have trouble answering the question Socratic is a amazing app to help quickly even if the questions are timed.
  • Please make this compatible to split screen!

    By jhtanu
    It works great and looks very nice, but I wish i could split my iPad Pro screen to where I can take notes while having the powerpoint at my control in case I fall behind on notes without having to move the skinny screen (which I wish I could make half the screen size) out of the way constantly
  • Everything this app does can be done for free and with software that works better

    By Orgoprof
    This software and app are a waste of money. Much easier to just use a clicker and your schools course management system and save you students some cash. You can even use Plickers which is completely free if you don’t want them to have to buy a clicker. The material in their MarketPlace is mostly available for free on the web. There customer service is also lacking, good luck getting them to actually show up for an appointment.
  • Needs improvement

    By frustrated med student
    I usually have issues logging into class about once a week. My teachers just mark me absent and it effects my grade, so that gets annoying. Also, you cannot split the screen with this app on the iPad. It would be extremely beneficial to be able to take notes on another app while I’m reviewing the slideshow on Top Hat. Please make adjustments.
  • Misled an entire class room

    By DanimalsMcNabbits
    TopHat was contacted by our professor before use. After having all students in the class register for the app service, TopHat came back to say that taking tests required an extra fee. They locked the class out of the classroom group thus interrupting our professor’s class schedule. Thanks TopHat. I definitely didn’t want to learn today. There are also bugs with older devices and geo-location.
