Ratings and Reviews
Good app, but some issues
I live in the United States, and it's not available here, but you can still ise it without redeeming points. This is great and all, but it requires location to make sure that you aren't using your phone, but I've never been prompted to allow location services, and when I click go to settings, there is nothing about location services. Basically I can't use the app right now, but I love the concept and the design.
Great concept but needs to add the US
I say this on Mashable on Snapchat and I was so happy to know this exists but the. It said it is not available for US students and I was upset plz HOLD contact the US government they will fund you well because they know they have a problem with teens always being on their phone. I really hope this comes out in US
I (and im pretty sure I speak for every reviewer here) would really appreciate it if you guys added US schools because like all others you would get at least a million more users if you added US high schools and US universities and if you would we would all really appreciate it. Thanks for your time that you (hopefully) read this review
