Ratings and Reviews
Great app- just needs a few tweaks
This app is great for learning the names of my nearly 700 students. First, I wish that the self practice quiz would mix up the names (just as the other quizzes do). I find this the most helpful way to initially learn the names (flash card style) but since they’re in order I tend to remember the order rather than connecting the names and pictures.
I also wish class lists would sync between devices. I paid the extra $3.99 for sharing but when I got a new phone all the groups I’d set up on there were deleted. I emailed customer service a few weeks ago to see if there was a way to retrieve them and haven’t heard back. I had nearly half my classes on my phone and so I was super bummed to lose them.
Finally I wish that the pictures would display bigger on the iPad. I initially set up groups on my iPad thinking it would be easier to see the larger picture but they display the same size as the iPhone.
Overall it’s been a really effective tool for learning names though!
Love it, but
This a super useful app that I use frequently. Opening the camera directly from the app seems to have stopped working, but I still can take a photo and import it in. Needs o be fixed. Also, wish I could search by creator for un-shared groups. Had to re-download the app when I experienced an iPhone software glitch and I lost all groups that hadn’t been shared, such as small groups that I just used for myself. All in all, super helpful, but a few minor flaws. Get it, you won’t be sorry if you need I remember names and faces.
Wish lists would transfer between devices
I started a new job recently and downloaded the app on my phone to try and remember people’s names, but then I got a work phone and none of the lists I had built on my personal phone transferred over to the work phone. Other than that, the app is pretty basic and straight-forward, which is pretty much what I was needing it for, though I also think it could benefit with a few leading questions to go along with each contact. Something like: where do you know them from? Distinguishing characteristics? Things not to forget? Something like that.
