App Reviews

  • 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.
  • Not Getting Points

    By 98Ruth
    I was loving this app and would have given it a 4-5 star rating if you would have asked me about it a few days ago. However, all of the sudden the app is no longer rewarding me points for the longer periods of time that I am off my phone. For example, yesterday I was off my phone for about 5 hours in total: 1 early in the day during a class, 2 at work, and another 2 in the evening. During all of those times when I locked me phone I had the notification that I was earning points. When I unlocked my phone, it was to my surprise that I actually had earned no points, though I had been off of my phone. I even tried setting a goal later in the evening and I got the notification on my screen that I finished my goal, but when I unlocked my phone there were no points. Very frustrated at this app. Great in concept, and it was great for a while, but very lacking in delivery. I’m tempted to give it a 2 star rating, but because I had a good experience at first I’m giving it a 3 star rating.
  • Classic PP was Better

    By CaramelCarroll
    The original way to gain Pocket Points was more unique than other apps on the market. You’d have to be on campus and in the app, and based on how long you were in the app you got more points. That was great because no other app on the market was approaching it in that way. If you were to get out of class early, you’d only get a few points, but you’d still get something. Now, you have to set a specific time for how long you want to be off your phone. What if you have a 3 hour long night class and you get out an hour early? You can either lose the points you’ve been earning for the past two hours completely, or wait another hour not using your phone at all. It’s just like every other “stay off your phone” productivity app nowadays, and is nothing special. Also, the app won’t recognize when it’s being used. An example, I left my phone in the app for hours in the campus library working on a paper, only to find out it awarded me no points despite giving me the “congrats on earning points” notification. RIP Pocket Points, you are not what you once were.
  • It used to work great

    By Disappointed NG Leader
    I don’t think I have earned points since any of the new updates (since the app started creating goals and adding ads at the beginning). I set a goal and when I pick up my phone after the allotted time it tells me I failed. Alternatively, when I’m on campus, open and lock the app, I have yet to see any points even after keeping it locked through an entire class period. I keep the app only because I got a lot of points at the beginning so it’s worth my while to use the points but when they are gone they app serves no purpose. It’s a great app for local businesses; I’ve returned to a number of restaurants I discovered only through pocket points. I tried the JcPenny deal and nothing in my cart was eligible for the discount and it doesn’t tell you what is eligible. The Target points were practically useless as well
  • Better a few years ago

    By karik0
    I first downloaded pocket points when I was going to college and it was a great way to keep you engaged in class and stay off your phone. The rewards were pretty good and you could get discounts you couldn’t find else where. I stopped using it after I graduated but then I saw they’ve made it for everyone, not just students. While the concept behind everything is positive (reducing phone time), in my opinion, the rewards are wack! They’re not even unique to pocket points. You spend your points on discounts that you can find by easily googling for coupons. Or they’ll even make you spend points on deals that exist alone without using pocket points. For example, they had a Stila Cosmetics bogo for eye liner but when you go to the Stila website, they have the same deal and I don’t have to trade pocket points for it. Idk maybe the food discounts are better, but the retail store discounts aren’t that great.
  • 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!
  • Needs improvement

    By Erin12260206
    I’ve been a frequent user of pocket points for the past few years and made a lot of use out of it. However, the new points earning system makes it extremely difficult to earn points now. Not only it’s gathering less points than before, when you set up the goal time, the app often refreshes and exits by itself, and when it happens the app indicates it as me exiting the app and therefore I end up losing the time I spent away from the phone. And there are no indications that this happened, so it takes me a while to realize I’ve lost all that time and points 🙄. This happened so many times now that theres no point and I’ve almost given up. If there’s any ways to fix this problem, please do, because otherwise it’s a great app.
  • 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!!
  • New Point System is Terrible

    By The_Pardack
    The new timer point system is the worst, it’s almost impossible to get any sort of reward now and isn’t even worth using anymore. Edit: yeah.... it’s still the worst. They haven’t fixed anything. Edit 2.0: re-download the app for the new semester hoping it would be better. They said they added a non timer version which they did, but it’s awful. If you’re by yourself trying to earn the max you can get per hour is 4.8 points which is absolutely useless. Most things on this app cost an absurd amount of points and would require me to be off my phone for a solid two weeks while on campus to get 2 dollars off an ice cream cone..... and when my phone is used for homework it kind of defeats the purpose of even trying. 1 Star is far to high of a rating for this app. Don’t waste your time using it.
  • I love this app but, there is a glitch.

    By K Co.
    I absolutely LOVE pocket points! I recommend it to all my peers. Multiple professors requested that we use it in their class at the start of the semester. I thought, “If the professors are requesting it then it has to be good.” It is. You earn points towards coupons for purchases such as restaurants or website purchases. I used this app almost every day up until these past few days where it automatically shuts off as soon as I open the app. Hopefully the developers will fix this glitch soon so I can used my earned points. Thank you for the great app.
