Could definitely be better

UMCP Undergrad

There are quite a few reviews rating this app low, justifiably, due to its lack of service and affinity to crashing, particularly on devices older than an iPhone 5s.

I experience no such crashes on 5s, iOS 9, and enjoy having less to carry, but do have two complaints.

1) The app, on long lectures, likes to automatically sign-out—presumably for security and/or academic honesty purposes. The app should be designed such that it remains signed in for, at least, two hours of inactivity, if not indefinitely—which leads into the next point.

2) While it is reasonable to have to input the session ID each time, since that changes per session, it is particularly annoying to have to input all the login account details for every session. A "Remember login details" or "Keep signed in" option should be present, to allow for smoother access.

To anyone thinking of using this app as an alternative to TurningTechnologies' clickers, either make sure that you won't be doing any quizzes or tests with them, or just hold off for now. The tried and true approach is more attractive at this point.

Unreliable and overpriced


Responseware is an absolute piece of trash. Subscriptions cost $20 and are required for graded assignments. The iPhone app as well as the in-browser version both time out frequently and do not record answers to questions. This occurs despite great wifi signal strength and costs students their grade due to poor design. Responseware was poorly designed and maintained no matter what platform it is used upon. Its creators clearly do not care about the quality of their product. Our entire 170 student class has lost connections during quizzes, the software is nothing but a hindrance to any session it is used in. It is clear that the developers do not offer costumer support beyond convincing large schools to mandate that their entire student bodies buy subscriptions at $20 a piece. This app is a buggy ploy to make quick cash on the part of the developers.

ResponseWare's A-OK!


I downloaded the app and didn’t encounter the “disconnection” issue mentioned in the earlier review. Even when my iPhone went into sleep mode, I just woke it up and rejoined the session ID that was still on my screen. Easy!

Also, I have yet to experience the “loss of data” issue cited earlier either. My responses have never failed to make it to the presenter’s computer, and I’ve seen no delay in transmission whatsoever. I even have a history feature I can check out after polling is done. Cool!

Bottom line, this is the kind of app the iPhone was made for… and for me, it means one less device to lug around.
