The idea is awesome, and I prefer this over a lot of other engagement solutions in the classroom. The UI isn’t totally intuitive yet, though, and some features are missing. One in particular that bothers me is the lack of split screen mode on the iPad. Without it I can’t take notes and watch the lecture simultaneously.

UPDATE THE APP

I HATEEEEEE THIS APP!!! Every time I close the app it starts me all the over to the beginning of the chapter. EVERY TIME! There’s no bookmarking to start back where you left off. And then sometimes when you’ve scrolled back to where your spot is it’ll close out of the textbook again and then you’re back to scrolling and scrolling. Having an index helps none if I’m in the middle of 2 sections. UPDATE THIS APP!!! PLEASE!!

Wait Before Downloading

DO NOT download the app before you buy the course. You will probably be led to download the app from the mobile website, and if you do and create the account on the app, it will start the free 7 day trial. Once you purchase the subscription, your account on the app will still be stuck on the trial and once it expires the subscription does not carry over and you will be locked out of your classes. Top Hat is nothing more than another useless, expensive, and poorly made grab at taking part of the education industry. Encourage your professors to not use Top Hat!

I have to log in every time I open the app, and it has caused me to lose points. How hard is it to make an app that doesn’t log people out every single time??

Money Scam

I would always use the website on my Mac in class so I could split the screen and take notes. it would never load, I would always be three-four slides behind, and my quiz questions would hardly ever load in time for me to answer them. I figured I’d just start using the app, but I have the same issues on the app that I have on my Mac. the connection is always “poor”, and my professor can’t ever use it either - and will insist that the students are taking up the bandwidth and are causing the app to crash and lag (?? don’t know where he got that from), costing us our attendance points. and I know I’m not the only one, whether it be in my class or across everyone who has bought the app, that has these issues daily. if I have to pay this much for an app that simply takes *attendance* and gives mini class quizzes, I expect it to work 100% of the time, flawlessly. the rest of my university uses a free attendance app and I have never had an issue with it - ever. drop your prices, and fix your interface. this app is a whole mess, a money scam, and absolutely ridiculous. if they have to charge for the app to keep it running and whatnot, why not $.99, $2.99, $4.99?? where did the $27 and $50 come from? the people buying it are college students with little income who are forced to by their professors. incredibly pathetic for something that never works.

A fix for crashes

This is me second review Apparently my first time installing this app it did not work but a quick fix was uninstalling the app and installing it again and now it works amazingly good.

Making me take a survey as I am stressing to enter my attendance code is very ignorant!!

Great way to reiterate learning strategies and engaging.

Great in theory, terrible in execution. Not like I had a say in my purchase anyways...

An Unhappy "Customer"'s Review of Top Hat

Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:27 PM

Yes, I agree that teachers need to hold their students accountable for attending class. But when you end up getting questions wrong because the app won’t allow you to submit answers, there’s a clear problem there. It has happened to me numerous times and I consider myself a good student in class, but constantly end up missing “clicker questions”. (Especially when your professor only gives you 20-30 seconds to answer a question and you can’t even answer in time). My chemistry class at my university is centered around this app, and to have to pay for a subscription service with so many bugs to play a role in determining my grade is entirely unfair. If you are a professor reading this considering using Top Hat for your lecture, please look elsewhere, and avoid placing unnecessary stress on your students!

So glad that Top hat consistently bugs out on every single lecture I attend, and states I didn’t answer questions when I definitely did.
