Ratings and Reviews
App works well....tweak ideas
The app works great in iOS 12.
Suggestions to make it more intuitive:
When first opened, there was little to explain the graphic or what the user needed to do next. It my be smoother to skip the graphic and start at the home screen at the top of which could be the numbered steps with a brief description. Scrolling down in the home screen would display the photo thumbnails as they are now. The overall corner shots of the vehicle work great. I didn't have as much luck with the VIN photo, it didn’t scan on its own on several attempts on different locations in my car...until, I believe, clicking the screen triggered a photo.
Back to the beginning of using the app, starting with the guide through the main damage photos was not helpful. I think the first step to get users used to the app should be to take the overall corner pictures.
Wow I’m blown away! On a very busy Sunday, I was determined to get mulching around my property. No having done this before I went to Home Depot to buy 20 bags of Mulch, I didn’t realize that the bags were that big and weighed so much, needless to say I could only take 10 in my Honda Fit. I unloaded the bags and sent my son back with my car to pick up the rest. My son called and said I have bad news, my first thought was, there’s no more mulch. No it was worse, it was a mulch frenzy and some one by accident backed into my car. Never having dealt with an accident before I didn’t know what to do. Fortunately the person who backed into me had State Farm. The Pocket Estimate is so simple to use, it all step by step, even a sketch of your particular car shows up on the camera, you simply position the sketch where asked and take a picture, it’s that simple, then submit. I’m very impressed.
Intuitive Interface and Easy to Use
The app is very easy to use and figure out. The slots are clearly labeled as to what image is wanted. The only improvements I might give to the developer are to allow the use of previously taken photos in the Other photos section and to allow image rotation and labeling in the Other Photos section as well. My tailpipe got bent and I took a close-up photo of it because that didn’t show in the damage photos but it would have been nice to be able to label that in case the estimator couldn’t tell what it was. I also took some Other photos in portrait orientation that got rotated into landscape and I would have happily put them in their proper orientation. But those are minor issues - overall, it’s a great little app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
