Ratings and Reviews
Quite good but could be better!!
This Wildfire app has been an awesome investment for me. The accessibility to student information and safety warning when WarnMe isn’t working had been a lifesaver! It’s not just an app for student problems but also an avenue of entertainment, so it has been a wonderful experience! One thing that could be worked on is the messaging system in-app. It’s difficult to tell when someone has messaged you and therefore makes communicating hard with other Wildfire users and in the end I had to provide my contact information so that our deal could be carried out and that was a little inconvenient. One more thing, the picture quality was appalling! I had sent photos in-app but the pixelation turns my pictures unintelligible! Over all, this app is great and provides students with may opportunities and fun, but I would love the app even more if the messaging system and photo pixelation was improved!
Most useful app I’ve ever used for college
This app is seriously so useful I can’t stress this enough. It’s saved me money on textbooks and I’ve met some really great people on here to help with classes and college in general. I found people in the same major or same classes with the same teacher so panic befriending someone in class wasn’t a huge issue for me. Their main thing is safety which as a female I can really appreciate. Their app can get glitchy because it’s new, but the developers have literally responded to feedback and fixed the problem OVERNIGHT. Starting college for me was really hard for me with a super heavy load of classes and a job, but this app facilitates a campus wide support group. Without it I think I would have been depressed out of my mind or just wouldn’t have gone as far as I am today. Just download it and even if you don’t post keep it around for the safety feature
Pretty good, but needs tuning
I got this app about a week ago and it is pretty fun, especially if you’re in a university. It’s almost like a successor to Yik Yak. From what I’ve seen the people on my campus are quite charming and funny, and it is useful to be alerted on certain issues as soon as they arise (that is, if they aren’t flat out lies). The addition of multiple categories to post to aside from standard alerts really helps you feel more in tune with your campus.
There could be some fixes to the app, however. First of all, hiding the dark mode behind an “invite your friends to this app and you get this feature!” Is ridiculous. I could care less about special icons and stickers, but the dark mode shouldn’t be withheld :(
Secondly, the app lags quite a bit whenever I make public posts (not replies). This can sometimes get so bad it’ll double over and make a duplicate of my post in the feed, which I then have to delete (which also lags or sometimes doesn’t appear to work). It would be great to see this app move along much faster instead of sitting there watching it chug along and hoping whatever you typed actually gets posted.
Wildfire is a good app I’d especially recommend for university-goers. Hopefully the lag and chug will be fixed to make this app even better in the future.
