Ratings and Reviews
For what I paid for Barbri, I should be able to study how as is best for me. That means on my phone and making the most of the few minutes I have here and there. But usually I just end up fighting with the app. I’ve wasted so much time trying to figure out this app and get it to work for me. And as a working law student, time is invaluable!
I can’t complete amp questions through the app—which is about half of the early bar material. I can listen to lectures, but the app crashes frequently, especially mid-way through lectures (whether downloaded or streaming, or video or audio only). I have an hour commute and try to listen to the lectures on the way but it’s hit or miss whether it will work that day.
There are some good features like being able to speed up the lecturers but that frequently causes it to crash. And it’s a hidden feature, not available when the videos are playing full screen. Moreover, it is not intuitive AT ALL how to download the lectures. (Menu>Lectures>More Review>[subject] then swipe left and tap download. Audio only downloads pretty quick; video takes forever. Especially Con Law.)
Also, on Barbri in general, I need access to the full bar prep materials in early November, but they aren’t available until December. That’s not much of a head start. Themis or Kaplan have access much sooner. I’m regretting my Barbri decision already.
Couldn’t be worse
This app is ridiculous and worthless. The first time I used it, it crashed and then froze upon reopening. Then, when I needed to listen to videos while away from my computer, the video wouldn’t play even though my phone was operating on full 4G signal. So, I tried downloading the audio so I could listen to it that way, but of course that feature wasn’t working either. Go figure. Now, I can’t even log in.
I have a newborn and the only way I can study sometimes is to be on the move. In my car or walking with him in his stroller so he will nap while I study. I can’t do that because the app NEVER works. For the amount paid for this bar prep program, this is simply unacceptable. After all the negative reviews and complaints about the app, you’d think the developers would have done something to fix it. Our bar prep tuition certainly should cover a decent tech.
App doesn’t work as advertised
Before signing up, you should know that Barbri's app doesn't work and on-site lectures have tech difficulties (for example, Tuesday's lecture -- day one-- took an extra half hour because the live stream wouldn't load).
You must do everything from your computer connected to WiFi. You cannot download lectures to go, despite Barbri's advertising that you can. I wish I had known this when I signed up in the fall. I took for granted that Barbri would have the basics down, unfortunately.
I have registered complaints, and the response has been "We are aware of a problem with the App at this time. .. I have not been given a time frame of when this fix will go out though." If you look at the reviews on the App Store, this has been Barbri's response for the past year. Evidently they've been aware for a while now and are not going to do anything.
