App Reviews

  • Definitely got better

    By Iemmzii
    The way that the professor utilizes this app is definitely important. Since you can't receive notifications for due dates, your professor will hopefully be diligent about that. Other than that, I think this is a really nice tool for classrooms. It's interactive, and has some cool question types (heat maps, clicking on images, matching, etc) although some of them are either difficult to use or don't work because my professors struggled. What's cool is you can go back and forward in the slides your professor has up so if you're a slow writer you can still get all the notes. Overall, this is a really nice idea and needs a little work but I enjoyed having it in my class. Definitely could do with more organization in the content, it's a little overwhelming when all the slides are posted and you're trying to study.
  • 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.
  • 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?
  • 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.
  • Works Great Sometimes

    By Amanda.Prease
    Works great when it actually authenticates your account. However, it’s been months since I have been able to access my account through the app on my phone or iPad because once I authenticate it never redirects me/let’s me go back to use the app. I’ve gone through multiple different resources, can’t find a way to use it other than on my computer.
  • Okay, but glitchy

    By Mjsielerjr
    The app is decent, but glitchy. Would be nice if the app didn’t kick you out of the content/textbook reading section if the lecturer opens up a Top Hat question. A better idea would be a notification with the option to click on it to exit the content window. The computer version does this.
  • Regularly Fails

    By Mars944
    Probably 2-3 times a month the app just quits working for one reason or another. I’ve been logged out and unable to log back in. The app regularly can’t submit answers for questions due to “bad connection” (I’m the only one in my class with the same tablet and internet connection). I also can’t follow a professor’s lecture because it won’t ever load the current slide -I’m always 2-3 slides behind. This app needs work.
