App Reviews

  • Meh

    By Nami_Dia
    When this app first came out I loved the idea, it’s great for students, it’s incentive to stay off your phone during class and you can use the rewards to save money because as a college student you are really on a budget. I really liked the system, the only thing I felt was lacking was the rewards but I figured that would get better with time. I stopped using it when I couldn’t spend my points on anything. I picked it back up after the update and I absolutely hate the goal change, it’s just a way to cheat you out of points. It also doesn’t really make sense because now you have to check your phone and tell it to keep going occasionally which defeats the purpose of getting you off your phone. The rewards increased in the number of places but they still haven’t gotten better. It’s just not worth spending a crap ton of points on 5% off someplace I wasn’t planning on going in the first place. This was originally targeted for students but now they are trying to broaden the spectrum of users, which is fine, but if you are catering to students and people of low income maybe have rewards that actually make sense to your demographic and are monetarily worth it. 5% a clothing store I can’t afford anyway isn’t really great.
  • Updated is trash

    By pocket_points_did_us_dirty
    I would’ve given this five stars before but now it gets one star. The new update cheats you out of potential points with the fifty minute goal. I have two classes nearly three hours long and I don’t get rewarded for it like I would’ve before for having my phone locked for three hours consecutively because the fifty minute goal is so limiting in terms of points and you have to remember to reset it. I feel like the update was to appeal to businesses and in the end, capitalism, but the whole point is to help the student be less distracted so screw the update. I’m still going to use it because discounts are cool, but the new system doesn’t actually reward your actual effort anymore. If you haven’t gotten this app yet, I would reconsider and not do it, especially if you have longer classes or if you wouldn’t remember to reset it. Maybe try to find other ways for deals, and a lot of places gives you discounts right off the bat if they’re near your campus or if you have a student ID. It actually defeats the purpose because you’ll be distracted by the phone waiting for fifty minutes to pass rather than just locking it and forgetting it.
  • Has potential

    By tbtbtb2018
    This app could be great if it worked well at ALL TIMES and not certain circumstances. It only works well if you continuously use the 30 min goal. If you try to go higher, for example - 60 min, it will cut off on you and you don’t earn points. It sends a reminder to come back to the app only for the 30 min or less. It also doesn’t give you time to come back to the app if you go over 30 min. I don’t know if it’s their way of cheating people out of points or not, but I have lost like 20-30 points because the app wouldn’t stay active for the 60 min goal. I haven’t tried the class option yet. We’ll see how that works! This is really helpful for focusing, but they HAVE to fix this! It’s annoying to keep putting in 30 min goals when you want to focus for an hour or more. Excited for the new features coming!
  • LOOVE the new update! Just one suggestion...

    By AJFielding
    I REALLY like this new update, I stopped using Pocket Points because it was never locating me on campus, and it was simply too frustrating to try and make it. Now I use it to reach my goals of staying off the phone. However, I notice that sometimes I lose my points even when I haven’t unlocked my phone, but I receive a text. I feel kinda cheated losing all that time. Maybe we could receive a very small portion of points based on how long we have our phone locked, then if we reach a goal, we can receive significant bonus points? Just a thought. Otherwise, LOVE this app!!
  • It’s impossible to earn points with new update.

    By gAmLuvR
    New update makes it extremely difficult to get points. I had an hour and 40 minute long class and got zero points because some solicitor called me. I didn’t even mean to hit the ‘end call’ button because I just knew it would say I lost points. It’s much easier to do the 10-20 minute time limits, but also you can really earn anything since you shouldn’t be resetting the timer during class. It’s also hard to check for points after class because if you get too far away from the room (like if you had to leave because a new class was coming in) it doesn’t register that you were ever on campus and therefore gives you nothing. If the next update won’t fix any of this, I’m just going to delete it.
  • Bring back the old version!!!

    By 574269536$9
    I used to love this app! It helped me focus in school and the rewards are actually really cool. But this version is extremely annoying. I am constantly having to check my phone to make sure that my time doesn’t run out, and if my class ends earlier than I set my timer to, I lose the points that I made while I didn’t use it in class. Please go back to the old version, at least for the time that you are in school. Because I like this “challenge” idea for when I’m studying at home, but when I’m at school, the old version was a lot better, because I can’t control how long my professors decide to teach. And if my class ends and I have to check the bus times, I miss out on my scheduled points.
  • I don’t like the new update.

    By Nellie 96
    I enjoyed using PocketPoints until this new update came about. While I understand the idea of having a goal in order to give students something to look forward to while their phones are locked, I don’t think it helps anything. A student cannot help if their professor ends class early or if a class doesn’t take as long as expected. Also, what about the classes that are three hours long? The highest goal is about two hours, but I’m taking three courses that are three hours long within the first few days of the week. All in all, I think switching the app back to the way it was would be better.
  • Needs better deals

    By Mistafun21
    I love the concept, the execution could be better due to the app not always being able to detect when I’m in class. For example, I’ll use the app during class, but when I come back to my phone, no points will have accrued. NEEDS BETTER DEALS. Most of the deals are discounts that the companies already offer. There are very few incentives to even use this app if I can get the same discounts for just going to the vendor’s website. Chick fil a used to be the best one, but that’s gone now. Definitely needs more food option. Mediocre app until they can get more/better deals, even if the rewards cost more.
  • Great App!

    By kellosa1
    This app is easy to use and really beneficial for college students. My professor had told me to get this, to get free/discounted deals. I was skeptical at first, but it really works! I have gotten multiple FREE foods and such. The only downside is if you are NOT on campus, it takes much longer for u to get points. 35 minutes only gets you about 3-6 points. But they always update the app and add more amazing features, so it keeps getting better. Definitely recommend for anyone.
  • Works like a Charm

    By Sruns
    I’ve gotten really sick of being on my phone, especially during class. This app helped to motivate me to beat people in longest time not looking at my phone and I earned real rewards at the same time! Having the rewards close to home and things that I normally spend money on has been great! I love that they are updating it to expand to home, work, or where ever you are! Thanks PocketPoints!
