Ratings and Reviews
Not too bad
It’s a pretty nice app overall, but the new update hurt it a bit. Before, you could scroll through countless old surveys and just answer them all. But now they removed all those so you can only see what they post every couple of hours. The real prizes they offer cost a ton of points, and they surveys they post on a daily basis usually only get you 10 points. Not being able to go through all the old surveys really hurts your chances of ever getting a prize that you actually care about. They do have streaks, but as you can imagine it takes a while to get any meaningful points out of them. The surveys themselves are usually pretty fun or interesting, there just aren’t very many of them you can do in a day now. The graphs that they use sometimes to display data are extremely weird and can be tough to read. Overall, not a bad app, but they shot themselves in the foot a little bit with the newest update.
PS: please bring back Yik Yak. This app’s comments are basically the same thing, so if you could bring that back I would appreciate it. I miss Yik Yak so much.
Took away ALL the meaningful prizes
I saved points for something like 8-10 months just to have them take away any prizes that were actually worth anything. The app is still fun and I like doing surveys and seeing what people say, but the prizes kind of feel like a lie after they removed everything good. For example, there was a $2500 cash app credit that literally not one person ever made it to before they removed it. They basically put a bunch of nice prizes on there to keep people taking the surveys, then took all those away once they had a nice following that wasn’t going anywhere. Now they just do so-so prizes in a raffle that you have the same chance of winning whether you’ve been engaging with the app for a year or for a day. I know I’m ranting but they’ve really bummed me out lol I truly feel lied to
Fun and Interesting
Many college students avoid each other and deep conversations enough that they don’t even know what most of the population of students on their campus are thinking. This app deletes that and replaces it with insight into the minds of others around our age with sometimes fun and/or startling quizzes and surveys. It’s definitely kind of addicting because you just keep wondering how different you are from the rest of your community. But also, you get stuff for doing it which adds a whole other level of interest! I’m glad I got an email about this app. It’s definitely worth it if you’re as curious about other humans as I am.
