Classkick is a free app that students work on and get help instantly from their teacher and peers.
Students work on assignments with their Chromebooks, laptops, or iPads, while getting help from teachers and peers instantly. Teachers create assignments, see all their students’ work in real-time, and give LOTS of student feedback. Best of all, students can help each other anonymously.
Using Classkick, feedback to students increases by 300% and grading time is cut in half.

Ratings and Reviews
I love the idea of Classkick. It is easy to use, allows me to quickly and efficiently give feedback and help students, and lets students anonymously help each other. My issue is that the interface is not as friendly. It is not very smooth to write on. You cannot zoom in very much. There is little option for font and color. My students do not like writing in it, so I am looking for an app that does all the same things, but is smoother.
Classroom comes first
When was the last time you offered feedback for a website, app, company, or any other product/service and did not receive some generic "Hello Mr./Ms. (Insert name here)"? Don't worry I'll wait...well that's the first place I'd like to start when discussing Classkick. They've been so helpful in making a great experience with their app even better. I work in a High School with 1:1 classrooms and it has been such a struggle trying to find an app that offers practical use for my students. I can monitor how on task they are while also giving enough attention to the students who need the extra help. It has a very simple layout and allows you to creat the lessons that cater to student needs. It is very user friendly which is needed for teachers who may not be tech savvy. So far it's the only app that the students are happy to open up. Whetherused for a full lesson or a warm up, Classkick is a download you won't regret.
Notability is better
After using the app I found that it was difficult to use.
One issue is that the controls are bad and it’s hard to customize the text box when you are typing in a text box. Another issue was that because I had so many tabs open on my iPad I was closing them out and after I closed out the tab for classkick the app kicked me out and would not let me sign back in. I’d definitely encourage Notability over classkick.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
