Awesome for texting but lacks features for educators
Being able to text people in a class or small groups is amazing and very helpful. However finding individual texts is very difficult to do...there’s no way to sort or organize msgs and if you receive images or attachments from members (students) they are also extremely difficult to find after several threads. You’d have to download or copy the attached picture right away because if you miss it or if you don’t do it immediately then you might as well forget it. The new features to attach files from different platforms is amazing but if you can’t receive msgs in a way that’s easy to organize, you might as well stick to email for more classroom related tasks like assignments and schoolwork communication. If it’s being presented as a tool for constant communication in an educational context it would be most helpful to sort msgs or find attachments somehow in a way that’s efficient and organized. It’s also difficult to find contacts when parents and students are not separated or filed easily, especially using it in the primary grades where the main contact or only contact is with a parent (you still need to know who’s parent they are) and adding that to the “notes” is not the best option.

A great teacher-to-student ap and vice versa
When I returned to teaching in the fall of 2018, I knew some teachers were using Remind but I did not see what the big deal was. Mr. Covid has made it very clear to me what the big deal with Remind is. Remind gives a teacher the convenient, easy, and quick way to communicate with his/her students, either individually or as a class. Remind also gives each student the same option to communicate with his/her teacher. If a student has a problem or issue that s/he does not want to share in front of the entire class, Remind is the perfect vehicle for that student-teacher communication, especially if the teacher has his/her phone out and available while teaching - as I now do. Why not just use the school's email system? Simply because many students now do not check their emails frequently. They use phone aps to send and receive messages. I know now that Remind is a terrific phone ap for useful and needed teacher-student conversations. I am now a true believer in the power of Remind and will be making extensive use of this ap in the fall when my school district returns to in-person instruction. I strongly recommend all other teachers do likewise.

Some inconveniences
It’s fine to receive basic reminders. We use for school admin to parent or teacher to parent and Vice versa communication. The free version has very low character limit (140) so it’s hard to fit even basic info-so then it’s a reminder and see attachment. Which you can only attach one picture or file. So that means sending several messages which leads to over notifications, which then parents are bothered. (There are plans available for higher character around 500 is the one my school finally switched to. This is very helpful. Idk the cost on the administration side, but I appreciate it both as a teacher and parent.) On the parent side if you have receive notifications turned on then it’s really like two notifications because you get the notification and view it. But then you still have to open the app and view in the app for it to be marked read, otherwise it still looks like you have a new message. Also if several attachments were sent in a row you have to open each one separately. So it’s small inconvenience but adds up. I do like how you can individual message within groups so it’s a way for parents to connect without sharing numbers. And you can individual connect with a teacher. But each teacher had to make their own group. Overall it functions for its basic purpose to send a brief reminder to a group of people who have signed up-but that’s the key-very basic.

First ever app review.... this should be used at every school!
This is the first app I’ve ever reviewed! But I have to say how this app has been so amazing for our family! My 5 year old son has autism and receives a lot of special services including seeing numerous teachers and therapists at school. Before this app I was never able to keep up with all the emails, found it impossible to go through everything and respond to everyone in a timely manner. Once his school started using Remind, all the important communications, the stuff directly from his teachers regarding things in his specific care, now had their very own home on my phone, and the unique style alerts easily combined to separate these important messages from the noise of my constantly roaring email inbox! With this app I have been able to GREATLY improve my communications with my son’s teachers and therapists at school and it allows so much better cross communication between the entire group on his team as well! I think every school should be using this app. Teachers, get your classroom on here! Parents, send Remind invites to your children’s teachers! I love this app so much and hope to see it used everywhere soon!

Stopped before it started
I’ve heard and read so many great reviews for this app, including from my colleagues so I after two terms of hearing about it, I finally decided to try it. Lucky me! 😒 I’m not sure what I did wrong but within seconds, it has already been a fail. I’ve tried uninstalling and installing and was still a total fail. After setting up my classroom, I went to enter some contacts and it got stuck at asking me what I wanted people to call me, which I had already done in the initial setup. Already strange that it was asking me this again. I typed my name again, and chose “Ms” for the title; then hit next. First it changed what I entered and added an “M.” in front of my name and no title. It then would not advance to the next screen. I repeatedly hit next and it just kept repeating the same screen name question. I even uninstalled and when I installed again; it eerily would reload and show the last screen from before I uninstalled it - still asking me what name. A major glitch to be sure. It just kept blipping “What do you want students to call you?” Call me baffled and disappointed.

Terrible Sign up experience
First, I signed up using the text option provided by my daughter’s school. Second, I downloaded the app and chose to sign in using my google account, rather than creating “another” user account on someone else’s servers. I finished the verification process and and found the account I had just created via text message. I was prompted to merge and I accepted. I received an email saying my accounts were merged so I assumed the app was just a stuck. Third, merging was stuck for over 10 minutes so I removed and downloaded the app again. When I got to the main page it had already pre-populated my email address in the email field. Assuming the app was smart enough to use Google SSO, as I had previously indicated, I clicked the next button. Now it’s trying to create me another account on remind servers. So basically no SSO. And, I’m stuck on the page that wants me to choose a password! I don’t want to choose a password! I want to go back and sign in with the Google account like I indicated in the first place. But now the app won’t let me go anywhere until I enter a password. I’ve deleted the app. I’ve deleted the app and app data, but it appears to be keeping track of where I was in the app. Clearly it’s storing something where I cannot delete it. Now I have no idea how to use this app. It’s stuck and I have no recourse.

Awesome addition for parents!
I really enjoy this app, it’s great for parents of younger children that are in school - I get text updates all the time from my boys’ teacher’s, one kid goes to after school care and his program director keeps in touch and sends pertinent updates through it, if they rode the bus (I drive them and pick them up) I would be able to communicate with the bus driver through the app, and even the school principal sends out announcements from the app - announcements that I’m sure are told to the students but by the time they get home they’ve forgotten about and never tell us, so we’re able to keep up to date on things like book fairs, student award ceremonies, dances, dress up days, reward days (Kona Ice comes to the school monthly), etc… it’s just a really beneficial tool to keep up with my children’s different school activities, projects, behaviors, etc. I am someone who does more texting than calling, I absolutely HATEEE talking on the phone for some reason, so it’s great that it’s a text app to keep us informed - but it also makes call for those who aren’t really into texting. It’s a very useful tool to have.

Horrible app!!!!
This app is apparently too hard for some teachers to set up. I sent a message to my child’s teacher at about 9:45 pm one evening and the message wasn’t received by the teacher until around 3 am when it woke her up because she had her am/pm switched around in her available hours and had it programmed mistakenly to go to her personal cell phone. When I arrived at the school the next morning to drop off my children I was met at the car/curb by two administrators who demanded that I meet them across campus at an admin office where I was accused of hacking into a teachers personal life and obtaining her cell phone number!! Luckily I was able to prove that I sent the message at around 9:45 pm vs the reported 3 am by showing them the app and the message to clear myself. However, this resulted in the teacher getting embarrassed &/or still not trusting me and she didn't think she could continue being my child’s teacher. So, my son was transferred to a different teacher where he went through an entire school year being constantly abused verbally and physically. Now 2 years later, the teacher who was too stupid to understand how to properly set up her app is now my child’s teacher again and even though I refuse to use the remind app to communicate with her she has created a new nightmare for my child this year!!!

This is an awesome app
This is an amazing app to use. You can use it for many different things, you can use it for school or just for groups for school. You can use it for work. You can pretty much use it for anything related to learning or working. It’s an awesome app to have because it has helped me to remember things for school I mainly use it for my beta club stuff. You can add friends and different things in it, and you can also, you can make your own profile. You can add friends on it and it’s just a really good app to use if you forget things like I do and I just love to see what things and opportunities for school and mainly my group for school, beta. Whoever made this app is amazing I could give them a huge thumbs up, and also I want to give he/she a hug because of this app I am able to remember things for beta club. THANKS FOR GIVING ME TJIS OPPORTUNITY to make a review. P.S. I want to say thank you again and I want to meet the person who made this app because they are a genius or they all or all geniuses

Great idea
Really helpful way to keep in contact with teachers or classes. However, there are a few kinks to still work through. I cannot message a teacher without having received a message from them first. I don’t understand why I can message anyone in the class except for the teacher. There has got to be a better way to organize classes. More customization within the app would be very helpful. For example, being able to organize the list of classes or teachers in any order, or in alphabetical order or put them in groups. Another helpful tool would be a way to mark something as important or put it in a to do list. It’s great to have these reminders, but once you read it there is not a way to set it aside to remember where it is later if it isn’t something that can be done right away. Lastly, I hate getting text messages as well. What is the point of the app if I get a text anyway. I disabled this in the app, but made the mistake of accepting a class through a text and began receiving the texts again. I unsubscribed, again mistakenly through text, and that ended my ability to send a message to the teacher even through the remind app.

Great for teachers
I love this app. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because I think you should be able to send longer messages. I often have to send 3 messages to relay the week’s reminders, which is annoying to me and the parents. Also, I have to keep a parent contact log and I wish there was a way to sort the dates of messages sent directly to the parents that aren’t whole class messages. I have to go into each parent and do them one by one and it takes forever- so a sort drop down menu filter would be nice. What’s great? The fact you can go back and look at old messages. I actually had a parent try to sue our school because she said her child slipped on the bathroom floor and lost a permanent tooth. On the day her daughter was playing with the sink water, she did slip and lose a tooth, but her mom texted me through remind and said, “ thank goodness the doctors said it was a baby tooth, her permanent one is getting close to coming in.” Lawsuit saved! I also like that it lets you attach pics. I often take pics of school flyers or homework sheets and send.

5 years ago, I reviewed it!
This app is...kind of......ok-ish. This app used to be great! I will be honest and say that the app WAS awesome in the past. However, now it’s just a necessary annoyance. I use it now only because I need it to keep in touch with the schools that my children attend. The stream of messages with no division of which school or class is annoying. The inability to leave a school is annoying. Yes. I get that there is a way to delete a school, but it doesn’t work every time. Try it. It won’t always work. I have a teacher who has two different groups. They both go to the same stream because they were both sent out by the same person. That gets confusing because I have to check the header of each and every message to see which group is being referred to instead of them being able to be separate even with them having different codes!!! It’s a different group!! It shouldn’t come in on the same screen as the other group!!! It’s just annoying!!! This is the situation for the most active groups on my app. Good luck trying to keep track of everything with this crazy app!!!! I’m so sad to leave a two star review for what used to be one of my favorite apps. :-( :-( :-(

Good so far, but could use improvement
I really enjoy using remind because it’s user friendly and extremely compatible with all of my apple products. Even my students without smart phones are able to use remind through SMS. I also love the feature of allowing parents to join a class. However, there are a few features that are lacking. I don’t like that my characters are limited when I send an announcement. I tend to send a lot of attachments and that seems to lower the character count additionally. Also, I like to create videos of my solutions to problems and send them to students. Remind doesn’t allow for videos to be sent. It does allow pictures to be sent, but if I have a multitude of pictures (for example a packet where each page is its own separate picture), I have to send the pictures one at a time in their own separate messages. I’m looking forward to updates that will make Remind even more useful for my students and myself.

6 years ago, I made this for you!
Remind is a one of a kind tool to use in classrooms, clubs, and really any organization that needs mass communication. It is really simple and easy to use. It can take less than a minute to send a message to the group, and even allows private chats between students and teachers. I think one of the best things about Remind is that it allows teachers to communicate with students without the awkwardness of private phone numbers. It is all done through the app so the numbers are confidential. However, the only down side is that it is very difficult to send large messages to the group because there is a character max of about 130. If Remind were the change it to about 200, I think it would make communication even easier. Sometimes there just isn’t enough space to say all that needs to be said, so the new max character count would aid in that aspect. Other than that, Remind is a high quality and effortless way to communicate within organizations!

Remind is a Great Alternative to Email
The app is a great way to communicate with my kids’ teacher directly without having to email, which is so much more convenient. I don’t think you can send videos though, or maybe I just haven’t figured out how? If the latter is the case, then I would say the app needs improved user-friendliness because it should’ve been easy for me to figure out, but I don’t think it’s possible. I have been able to send pics through the app, but have had to send the videos via email. Also, I would prefer a clearly displayed time stamp (hours and minutes) of when messages are sent and received, kind of like some cell phones would show, although I know many of the newer ones don’t do this anymore. With my cell, I have to swipe the message to the left to view the time stamp, which is kinda annoying, but that’s just me and my preference. Other than those things, I think the app is great.

Please Take This Into Consideration
As an eighth grader who participates in many school-wide sports and clubs this app is wonderful. I have the ability to communicate with my teachers, coaches, and advisors, and that is wonderful when you aren’t allowed to have their personal cell phone number. One thing I wish this app had however, is the ability to call and video chat with the people as well. I’m a cheerleader, and the day we voted on captains I had to miss for something more important. I was one of the candidates, but I would’ve loved to vote on my friends as well. (Obviously for fairness purposes you were not allowed to vote for yourself, but we had two captains *one for seventh grade, and one for eighth* and some of my best friends were candidates as well.) If this app had a call or video chat feature I would’ve had the ability to vote on people for cheer captain. Please take that into consideration. Thank you so much for reading. Have a blessed day!

Love Love Love this app!!!
The Remind app is simply awesome! I struggle with anxiety when it comes to my kids, one high schooler and one kindergartner. I find myself wondering how they are, if they are ok, what’s going on with them while at school etc. My youngest started kindergarten this year and as most of you know that can be a struggle in itself. The first few weeks there were tears, asking teachers to call “mama”, etc. The Remind app has helped not only myself but my little one adjust to going to school and being away from me. Knowing I can check in on them or the teachers can check in with me with updates, emergency’s, class assignments, school functions etc.. its a total game changer! My high schooler can stay in contact with teachers even after school hours for homework questions, help with assignments, etc. Thats a plus itself! I can breathe easy knowing I can be & stay in contact with my kids teachers at anytime! I’m so grateful for the Remind app. We Love it!

Used to love the app…but now…
I have used this app as a teacher for years & it worked fine. I liked that students could text me easily without having my cell #. I also liked that messages were never deleted for safety reasons. Cut to a couple of months ago where now I can no longer send “announcements” reliably out to my classes if my district has hit some arbitrary limit on sending announcements. I have no warning if/when the weekly limit will be met and no way to extend my personal account to keep sending announcements. I have no idea how many other teachers in my district use Remind or how many announcements are allowed in total for my district, so this has become very frustrating and is ultimately making me walk away from the app for something else…unless it gets fixed. I understand I’ve been using this service for free for years, but I’d be willing to pay a reasonable fee to be able to continue doing what I’ve been doing without restrictions. Until those restrictions are lifted one way or another I guess I’ll be moving on. Thanks for the years that the app was still good.

So happy with this App but..
This App is great! I am glad I can finally keep in contact with my teachers over the weekend or even when school is out and there is no after school tutoring. There are so many great things about this app to talk about but I do have one complaint. See I move a lot being a military family and also moving schools. So when I try to switch my schools to my current one it kept saying that it wasn’t advised to do it and wouldn’t let me it took me 46 minutes until I was able to get my school switched with the help of a teacher. I thought it would automatically switch when I became registered in a different school because I am in high school and it said I was in middle school. And because it said I was in middle school I couldn’t join any of my high school classes on remind. I would just like it to be less complicated in the future. But otherwise this App is 5 Star!! I recommend it to all of my friends all the time!

Very helpful, few minor flaws
“Outside of office hours” needs to have an option so the app will not notify you during that time. I have at times been unable to silence my phone for personal reasons and been awakened, disrupted or frustrated by students messaging at times I have asked them, numerous times, not to. It has only gotten worse with online learning. Students do not always have the maturity to realize that it is inappropriate to message a teacher at 10 pm to ask if an assignment was turned in or to correct a grade. That option would save me, and I’d imagine many teachers, so much frustration. The good: I use this app daily. It has helped me support numerous students over the years, whether it was simple questions or reassuring them to focus on self-care and family during difficult times. I don’t know what I would do without it. It helps me connect with and help so many students. I very much appreciate what it does, but I need a break from the notifications/work sometimes.

Was so pleased that thru the first few months of this school year that having this way to communicate with their teachers helped a lot. Miss Keddie and Miss Churruca were really supported and helpful to our Kadence when she needed it. Wish I can turn back the time to the beginning of 6th grade to really appreciate the days Kadence was attending at Ocotillo. Days went by so fast blink of an eye!!! Children grow up so fast!!! Really saw Kadence’s face light up every morning when she approached the school and when picking her up at the end of the day I looked with so much happiness and loving feelings to see my granddaughter happy with her friends and her family. Her parents were not around so her grandparents, which was myself and my husband, took charge to take care of our beautiful grandkids. They are now reunited with their mom and day and doing well still at our home. They feel safe and have support and so much love from their family. Thank you again!!!!

Group chats need improvement
*update* They changed it so there are group chat character limits. Part of why we liked group chats are because we can send out messages with more information instead of sending multiple messages out. The group chats also shouldn’t be limited to just 10 people. I coach dance and there are times where I want to create a group chat for each category team so dancers who don’t compete in that category aren’t bombarded with questions related to something they’re not even doing. But this causes chaos because then I have multiple group chats for multiple category teams and some dancers miss questions that the other chats ask. There also needs to be a safe word dictionary. My account got flagged because I said “booty shorts” to clarify with dancers what to wear under their team skirt! What would happen if I had to tell them to wear briefs? There’s also times where dancers have forgotten to pack underwear and now I don’t know how to remind them because I don’t want the account to get suspended.

Nice app but few concerns
Hello, my name is Shelly. I congratulate you developers for making such a simple and nice app for commucation. Teachers use this and so do students. Thank you for creating this app. Alrighty, every time there is an update, I’m sorry, but this makes me giggle because all it says in the description is “improvements” and that’s all. 😁 That’s not my concern—my concern is the fact that it kind of glitches with no wifi. Sometimes the messages don’t show up, and I’m confused. I see it on my notifications, but I don’t see it on the Remind app itself until it refreshes, but I constantly try to refresh it and have it take longer than usual. You all don’t need to fix that because it’s due to wifi problems that are easily solved. That’s all. 🙂 Other than that, I believe this app is good and recommended to anyone. ❤️Again, thank you so much for your time & patience reading this.❤️ P.S., I’m sorry about the story someone reviwed here; their bad experience made me feel pity for her and her child. I hope he is doing better now & so is she. I personally wouldn’t know what to do, if I had that kind of teacher. So far, I only had one teacher that wasn’t the best. She didn’t like me one bit but kept a secret / hid that. Maybe it was her demeanor or I perceived it wrongly, but still, it was very awkward being in her classroom. Anyway, I hope nobody goes through that. Tough world out there.

Difficult to use
Unless you're sending an announcement to the whole class (parents), it is difficult to use. It assumes you know parents' names, because you can't just go to a list and see the child that's associated with the parent without having to hoover over the child's initials or typing in the child's name. Nobody has time for that? If you want to sent a specific message to a particular group of parents, it doesn't allow. The only options are to delete and some other ridiculous thing, and this is after you've hoovered over all of the names, checked the ones you want to send the message to and it gives you every option, except message. So then you have to select names individually, which is really a serious pain and waste of more time. This designer did not have teachers in mind for sure. Go and look at how TalkingPoints does it. All of the "names" are there, not initials. You can click on one, some, or send a class message. Most teachers I know do not like Remind, because it reminds them of struggle, and our job is difficult enough. It is not teacher friendly at all. Thank you

Love this app
The Remind App is great. I had never even heard of it until the beginning of the school year when my daughter’s teacher sent all of us parents a link to do it. It’s just fantastic. But if you don’t have a school, or teacher that’s on top of it and sends out the reminders then clearly it’s not going to work. It’s great though to get reminders the night before, or the morning of, ab any changes or special events at school. They even use it to tell us if school is cancelled or delayed due to snow, and send class pictures from special occasions. And you can comment or ask questions, privately, or publicly so other parents that might have the same questions can see it. It’s also secure, it’s individual to each class within each school, and the admin has to approve your request to join, or send an invite link. With life being so hectic this is truly something helpful 😉

Mostly Great
I mostly like the premise of this app. It does exactly what it says it will do mostly perfectly. Students like it and it’s easy to use. However, a couple things drive me crazy: 1) it’s impossible to clear notifications. I HATE seeing the notification tag on my devices and it’s impossible to get rid of them. I have spent an eternity combing through the thousands of messages I’ve received over the past three years, none of them are unread, yet I still have four notifications that will NOT go away. Grrrr. 2) I know that app designers want us to constantly use their apps, but this one goes too far. It will send me 20 notifications a day, with no options on which to receive and how. They’re either off or on which makes the app either useless or completely obnoxious. There’s no in between and that is annoying. I’ve now uninstalled this app for the second time. That means I only use the web browser version, which is not as convenient, but at least it can’t bombard me with notifications that are impossible to remove. Please fix and I will reinstall!

Remind is AWESOME!
I have been using this app to communicate with my students’ parents/guardians for several years! Starting last year, I started added grandparents (as long as parents approved) because they wanted to support their grandchild with anything they had going on at school. I teach 3rd grade & our administrators do not allow us to text with children, for obvious reasons. I can send group photos when I take special pictures like: First day if school, homecoming week dress up days, fire prevention week, and this week we are doing Red Ribbon week! Everyone enjoys knowing what’s happening at school! This is a format that allows me to share “great things” instead of just negative phone calls. Parents are much more helpful when they see the teacher as a positive and meaningful person in the life of their child! Remind gives them this new perspective! Thank you for this app! Teacher 3B! 🐝

Very, very helpful
I really appreciate the fact that I can text my students as a class and individually while all of us maintain the privacy of our phone numbers. This is much more effective than the email system our school provides. Teens hardly ever check emails, but they do check texts. I send reminders about homework, projects, and tests; I contact guys who have left their books or their coats in class; I give them a heads-up about inclement weather; and I send notes of praise and thanks as well as offers of extra help and do-overs. The only reason for the four instead of five stars is the limited number of characters in the text that I can send. I usually have to go back and abbreviate heavily or end up sending two messages. Evidently, my school has not bought into the upgrade that would give me the ability to send slightly longer messages.

Great App!
Remind is a fantastic way to keep in touch with your children’s school(s) and teacher(s). It’s a great way for the school(s) to send announcements during inclement weather or if there are certain things coming up they can send reminders for the dates of those. As well as if you have any issues or questions you can always reach out to your child’s teacher to discuss those questions as well as their grades, extra credit work, etc. My husband & I both have this app and I recommend it to anyone who has children whose school uses it. If your phone can’t hold the app you can also set up where you can just get text reminders which I also think is great bc not everyone has enough memory on their phone to hold the app but they can still get in contact with the teacher(s).

Easy easy easy
Easy to set up, easy to get subscribers, easy to use. Great app for keeping groups informed. I use it for my Sunday School class to keep them informed of events and needs of the class. I have been using this app for almost 2 years now, and I'm still happy with the product. Recent update to the app however, have made it more difficult for me to see the messages. I am visually impaired and need more of a high contrast between text and background. Even when using the accessibility options in the Apple iOS, messages are still difficult to see because of the color schemes that were selected by the developer. Unfortunately, pastels seem to be the big thing now so this is not the only app I have difficulty with. Perhaps allowing users to pick a color scheme in settings would be appropriate I am looking forward to the day when the app takes advantage of Dark mode to make viewing easier.

App has been acting up
Partially though the year my app notifications just stopped. I would suddenly realize I hadn’t heard anything in weeks so I’d check the app and see everything waiting for me. Then promptly forget to look into why. Repeat over and over until finally I turned on mobile notifications and turned push notifications from the app off. Went looking for info about school and realized I never figured out what was going on with the app. At this point I could just delete it. Now it says I have 29 notifications but nothing I do clears the number. I would also love to clear messages sent to the jr high teachers and teachers from previous years. I remove the teacher but those old messages stay there under conversation. I feel like it would free up phone space if I could delete them. The app is wonderful when it works especially when teachers use it but over the last year it’s been hit or miss... mostly miss.

Great app, just one small problem...
The remind app is great, it helps me know when assignment or tests are coming depending on what grade I’m in on my phone. However in this case I’ve been in a conversation ever since May, I haven’t been able to leave the conversation even when I looked it up on online and using the help center. It said there was a bar where It say X to leave conversation where the icon is. I tapped on the Icon and all I saw was my teacher, the info on the view profile, the options to block or report, and the conversation history email option . I have no idea how get out of this conversation. I’m a student first year into high school and I’m still in the conversation back from end of May that isn’t even necessary to me with no way to leave myself. If you could add in a way to leave a conversation for students it would help so much for anyone else having this problem.

Remind is Awesome
We have used this app extensively for our Drama Club for the last three years and it’s absolutely invaluable. Parents and students can be so easily and quickly contacted about anything! Especially last minute rehearsal changes, and reminders for when things are due. The app does have a couple of small bugs - it doesn’t refresh well without clicking out of the screen and back again; sometimes it’ll say I’ve got a message on my notifications, but it won’t show up on the app unless I close it and open it again. But these really minor bugs don’t make the use of the app even uncomfortable. It just costs an extra 10 seconds a day, but the app itself saves us hours! So I think it’s absolutely 100% worth putting up with the minor bugs. I LOVE this app! Thank you for making it!

Great Ap for parents
My only child started kindergarten this year so Remind was brand new to our house & this level of communication between parent & teacher was a pleasant surprise. Remind does exactly what you’d want or need it to & is very simple to use. 💕👍🏼🏆 The only reason I left the 4-star rating rather than 5 is that a few times (usually last minute early mornings) the message or announcement will show a sent time stamp of a few hours earlier than it’s received. If his teacher sends an all-parent notice out at 645am there have been a few times we don’t rcv until after 9/930am when kids are already off & gone for their day. The bummer is it’s likely too late to address. I’m not certain however if the problem is somehow the school / teacher piece or within the apps function... I just know other neighborhood parents, w/ different classes & teachers, have experienced the same issue.

Great concept
The concept is great. Being able to touch bases with your child’s school/teacher is an amazing feeling and builds trust between family/ school. Having said this, all this wonderful potential is cut short if the teacher turns off the ability for the parents to send messages to teachers. Also, teachers have the option to sign up and use the app or not at all. Again, no app automizes the human response, but this one would be better if more teachers embraced this technology and used it *for the entire school year* not just in the beginning when everything’s exciting. Too many parents have been left out of emailing their kids teachers because of some weird school site programmers restrictions that kick outside emails to the spam bin. I would like to see in a future update for this app that teachers are not able to turn off parents comments. Really sends the cold shoulder to a lot of families when it really is all about the kids.

Don’t force change my settings
I rely on getting my children’s classroom announcements texted to me. I wondered why my child’s teacher wasn’t online today only to find out she had sent us a message through Remind and the techies at Remind decided I no longer needed to receive the text message version! They turned it off for me. Well, thanks not! I missed an important message. If you decide to make such a change, do it NOT on a Monday morning. And announce it prior to and let your users make the decision themselves! I don’t pay attention to the Remind badges when I’m busy, but I notice text messages. I prefer reading the messages in Remind, but please don’t turn off my settings! Also, I’ve got conversations from 5 years ago from groups that no longer exist, but Remind won’t let me delete them. Seriously?! Again with not letting me make my own choices! I want the conversations GONE! Tired of seeing them every day from groups I am no longer a part of. Am I going to have to see them for another 5, 10, 15?

Remind Review
Hello! I think this app is great! It keeps students in touch with teachers. However, I do have a few things to announce; Some good, some bad. First off, this app is very useful for communicating (obviously), and you can plan out times. I even used my old email to create a teacher account and I used a made-up school. The purpose is to help kids in my class; but I don’t really have friends so this is sadly impossible. Second, I found a glitch. On my main account (Student account), I cannot change my picture. When I go to “edit” and select a photo for it to be, then I exit, it says, “Changes complete!”. When I refresh the app, however (Close app entirely then re-open it), my picture I chose isn’t there! If you could fix that, it would be REALLY helpful. Lastly, I think it’s cool that we can send pictures. That way, students can tell which paper you mean. For example, if you gave out a homework on day one, then another the next day, and one is due on day 3, you can take a picture to show which homework you mean, or which was assigned that day. That is all for my review. All in all, this app meets all the requirements of a good student-teacher communication app. I rate this “5 stars” because it is simply just USEFUL! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Remind tutoring is the worst service I have had the misfortune of dealing with. From the very beginning it was a nightmare. I signed up for a 12 pm start time. The night before the session I received a message from the tutor that she would only be able to meet with us at 8:30 pm. I don’t have to explain why this was an issue for my 5th grader but they assigned us another tutor which we wouldn’t start with for another week. Also an issue since we would have to wait another week to start our sessions. When we finally do meet with the tutor, she has no idea of how the work is done and we receive a “D” on the first assignment submitted. From there it just gets worse. Her baby is crying through the whole session, we get basically nothing done. She sends you tube videos instead of teaching my son. I could keep going with the horror stories except I’d be here forever. Do not use this tutoring service it will cost you more time and effort just to get the billing right. A nightmare from beginning to end !!!

Perfect for the High school and above student
I had this app for around 4 years, (being during my high school years) after being forced by my classes thanks to the new technology curriculum in my school. Let me say this is a life saver. The teacher will ‘remind’ you when you have things due, an event the next day, or need to being an item to school. There is also a function to privately chat to your teacher, I used it to ask questions on weekends for projects due. However this app is only as good as the teacher and student who use it if the teacher is willing to remind. Although, I enjoyed the app, the notifications are not repeated, the ui and interface is simple, and it’s easy to add classes. Definitely recommend for the forget me not students out there that is busy and stressed with multiple class work

Update: The developers reached out to me promptly and corrected the error! It is now working properly. Even with this one issue, I highly recommend this app! There has been the number 1 beside my app for over two months now! I have contacted Remind multiple times and asked for their help and nothing! I have done everything I know to figure out why it is there. I even archived the group that the red dot was beside and it still won’t go away. This is beyond annoying! I have two kids that are in multiple groups that I receive notifications. I don’t want to constantly have to worry that I’ve missed a notice because of this problem. Can someone please help me with this matter?!?! This is a great communication tool when it’s working properly! I do wish you were able to write more words in the body of the message.

Great app that is easy to use
I like that the app provides a way to text students without using my personal information and cell phone number. And it provides a platform to send group messages. I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because there needs to be a way for us administrators of the app to make changes to a student’s account— for example if a student’s name is misspelled (often due to autocorrect) and it’s submitted, I can’t change it, only the student can. Also, once I put the student’s cell phone and email, I can’t see this information. So if I need to update and make changes to this info, or if I need to call the student or email the student, I don’t have access to the information. Also, it is frustrating that there’s a limit to how many characters I can use when sending group texts.

Easy to set up and use. Very useful, just in case.
I found that the app was incredibly easy to set up and to use. I didn’t know much about the app, at first. I wanted to give 5 stars for a few reasons. 1 - This app has a very nice and slick user interface. It’s simple to navigated and find what you want in just a single tap or 2. 2 - The app has features that make it very easy to make and set a reminder. It’s very good to have when taking several classes and labs. 3 - This app does not require a lot of sensitive personal or financial data. Just enter some simple and basic contact information. 4 - The app looks very clean and that’s very good to have when you happen to check what reminder or alert you have set up. 5 - The app is free. And for a free app, it really was designed very well. I think you’ll find this app very useful. It doesn’t require a lot of memory on your smart phone or tablet. Because the app uses so little space, it doesn’t require or use much power from your phone / table to use. I would recommend trying this app to find out if you like it or find it useful. For something that would be very useful and free that can be of help to you, while in college, I would recommend giving it a try.

Can use some work
I like the app! But… There are some things that could definitely be improved. The first and biggest issue is the maximum characters restriction. Remind allows you to write a message up to 140 characters. This forces me as a teacher to condense my messages so much that at times I am not able to get my whole message across. Granted, I can always send another message, but As most of you know, most students will not look farther back than the most recent message. That means that they are missing valuable information at times. The app lost 2 stars because of this one. Secondly, I’m not a fan of how a recipient is not able to click on a link directly from the message and be taken to the corresponding website. The user is forced to click on the Files tab to be able to open those links. This causes much consternation for me as my students didn’t bother to click on the file tab and just don’t bother looking into it further as they figured the link was just bad and now have an excuse to ignore the message altogether.

Lots of positives but one huge negative
I’ve been using the Remind app for the past few years and have found it to be very helpful and easy to use. However there is one big flaw that I wish could be fixed to make this a true 5 star app. The allow reply feature which enables parents and students to directly message teachers should have the option of being on an automatic timer of sorts. So instead of having to manually turn it off every day at 4, I wish I could schedule to have it on from 7-4 and then it goes off for the rest of the day. I know lots of teachers who have told me that they’ve taken Remind off of their phones because of the constant messages at all hours of the day. The away message that Remind has made available is not a deterrent at all. It’s just a sign that everyone ignores. So while the app does what it’s supposed to do, it has taken on a 24/7 life of its own.

Ok but... I Don't Want Notifications
I like the app, and it really helps me for my teachers to be able to notify me of upcoming assignments and due dates. Although I have a small issue, on the gear icon for the settings, there is always a orange dot when I am using the app, on my tablet. I use my phone for actually getting notifications from this app, but I use my tablet just to check back on past messages from my teachers, and this is why I have notifications completely turned off on my tablet. But, I feel it is a bit unnecessary that, every time I open the app on my tablet, it insists on "warning" me that I have notifications turned off. I know that this issue of mine is, most likely, not even a problem in your eyes, but it would be nice to not have this supposed warning, at the top left of my screen, while in the app. Thank you for making this app, and reading this long rant of mine. Sincerely, A Student User

Functionality differs between app and desktop site
I’m a new user to the app, and I’m sure it’s generally great. However, somehow the app assigned me to a school that’s not even in my district! I see the Remind website provides guidance on how to remove a school, but it seems it only works when on a computer - not through the app on my iPhone and iPad. I realize overall it’s a minor issue, but it’s a major pet peeve for me when the functionality of a website and an app are not the same. I hope this isn’t user error on my end, but I tried everything I could think of to find a way to remove the school to no avail. *sigh* Update - when trying to reset my password on the app it asks for a new password and to confirm the password. When I click save it says the old password is required to change it. Makes sense - except there is no field for the current password! This app is driving me bonkers. I’m truly only using it because my daughters teacher requires it.

Great app...just one problem for me
This app is wonderful because it allows me to communicate with my college students. Nothing only that, it allows me to actually download and/or print all messages from students as well as all communications. My only problem or concern is that I have to limit my wording in each message I send (or simply type multiple messages) because Remind only allows so many characters in each message space. That makes it aggravating not only for me but my students, as they receive several back to back messages for just one announcement. On the flip side of is helping me learn to eliminate excessive wordiness! Ha! Ha! Overall this is still a great app...Just please fix my problem and allow at least a few more characters for each message! Thanks

I like this app as it helps me get more information directly from the instructor (if the instructor is using it regularly). I wish this app was utilized to its full potential. For example: if the instructor is beginning new material in their classroom, they should place the information in Remind. It would help us work better with our children after school, and we would have the opportunity to teach them different methods to achieve the same results. Also, placing the actual weekly assignments, makeover assignments, extra credit, etc. in Remind could be a great way to help parents with knowing that their children are presenting all of their work. Now in the case of my usage of the app and my personal opinion(s)...I would feel better about special assignments and projects if parents were able to begin their own groups “study group”.

I LOVE Remind!
We have always used another major app for communicating with my stepsons teachers, and we’re definitely not very fond of it and have a lot of problems with it and always have the entire 3 years we’ve been using it. It wasn’t until this year when my daughter started kindergarten that I found out there was another app for communicating with teachers. I have been happy with Remind since first downloading it and now after using it for over a month of regularly talking to my daughters teacher- I absolutely LOVE IT. It’s much more reliable than other similar platforms. I also love that you can communicate with other parents if need be. It’s simple, easy to use, and reliable. I would recommend Remind over other similar platforms over and over again!

I love remind. I use it on a weekly basis. I have been part of remind for 2 years now and I can say that my students really love it. However, I don't like the current version of the app. It is hard to find where I can write a message. I feel like I am navigating back and forth and never find what I am looking for. The layout as as is has been the most difficult for me to use and I consider myself technology buff. Hope there is an update with changes soon. Neverless, still use this program folks! Students love it. (I currently use the desktop version because it's easier for me) Update: navigation has gotten a lot better. Easier to find where to send messages. Now my biggest complaint is that I get a notification for the same message sent to different classes. I don’t remember this happening until this fall of 2018.
