    If you are looking for a free and safe way to schedule reminders, assignments, homework or motivational messages directly to students' and parents' phones, this app can be useful. It's a 1-way communication system that helps teachers send notifications to parents without their phone number.

    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.

    This app never works! Its much better simply using remind with text or email- without the app- but now its forcing you to download. Theres no other option. *EDITED 4/26/22* So far, the app has worked a lot better this time around. Its only been around a week but I wanted to give credit where it's due. I havn't missed any reminders, they're showing up in my notifications without having to go to the app to doublecheck, and the app is a lot easier to use.

    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.

    Love the idea of this app but there are so many glitches. I have to close out of it every time I hit the 'back' button because it goes to a blank screen, will only get notifications about a third of the time, and now there is a character limit on individual messaging but no character counter so I have no idea how many I'm using. Debating switching to a different app for parent communication next year.
  • A great teacher-to-student ap and vice versa Jun 8, 2021

    By LeesburgMichael
    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.
  • First ever app review.... this should be used at every school! Mar 8, 2019

    By Amy E from AZ
    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!

    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

    I love the app very much. I love the design and look of the app. Don't change that in any updates to the app. I don't have much to say to improve the app except for maybe some sort of activities we can create in the app would be cool. Like you could create events that are coming up instead of the announcements. And maybe a higher character limit for messages.

    Really great app! But, it's very annoying that you're not able to send a ton of pictures at once. I'm always bothered by the fact, that I have to click into each one and send it one at a time... Otherwise it's a great app. As a teacher, you like the ability to just send a whole bunch of pictures of an event, or just from every kid, to post them on the class chat. I'm editing this review here at the end of 2021, and I still feel the above-mentioned issue should be corrected ASAP Thank you again
  • Great idea Oct 1, 2020

    By Smackadoo u
    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.

    Terrible app. I've downloaded and re-downloaded, even reset the app several times and it will still not open properly. Even with name brand phone on one of the largest network carriers around. Used an external link to set things up and while it recognizes my phone it tells me it's a new device every time. I go to use it and it wont accept the code that it sends me. Anytime I tried to get help it just sends me through the same automated stuff that I've already done several times. Worthless
  • Terrible Sign up experience Aug 29, 2020

    By shouldntbehard
    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.
  • Horrible app!!!! Jan 26, 2020

    By Dosangel
    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 app constantly signs me out. It's annoying to log in so frequently. And then if you need a verification code it takes awhile to get to your email and times out in 30 minutes, so if you get distracted you have to start all over! Overall it used to work better when we used it a couple years ago. Went downhill. Easier to just communicate directly with their teachers. UPDATE: I have unsubscribed from all emails multiple times, I still keep getting junk from them. DON'T TRUST WITH YOUR INFO

    Frustrating! Remind/help isn't helping either! A few days ago the app changed where I can no longer send an announcement to "Everyone" in my class. Now that option has disappeared! Why?! It was the most efficient and easiest way to get a quick note out to my class! I've emailed help team & they say uninstall & reinstall the new version. IT'S NOT THERE! for the 1000th time & it needs fixed! I will need to delete this app and find a better solution because this app no longer meets my needs.
  • Jumbled Apr 1, 2019

    By 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. :-( :-( :-(

    This app is terrible! There are so many glitches. The screen flashes over and over again and the only thing you can do is uninstall it..... then reinstall it.... only to have it do the same thing all over again. When the app IS working (which is rare) it is NOT easy to use at all. The fact that you can't delete any conversations is ridiculous. When your child is done with a class you should be able to remove that class but that is not allowed. I could write 3 pages but word count won't allow it!

    The interface is very awkward as a teacher writing messages. Some things are only easy to get to on the app, while some things are only easy to get to on a computer. But neither one is developed very smoothly. Also having trouble posting a sign up, where responses of people checking things off the list are not visible to others, to prevent duplicates.

    It's good but it has a lot of little bugs. For example, when I search students individually, it will always revert to my personal message with the last student I had up. Usually, when I get notifications, it shows me the very first message of that specific conversation. Also, sometimes it doesn't send a notification at all. Much better on computer.

    Great App! Simple to both set up and use. As a coach, I like that I can message individual members as well as send announcements to my players, their parents, or both at the same time. I also like that I don't have to share my cell phone number and conversations a can be saved and even printed if needed. This helps protect all parties communicating. I highly recommend it.

    Over all Good experience!!!I The copy feature was disabled. One of the raters said to click on a specific area. I will look for it. This feature is very important to me because I use it to copy my Spanish messages from parents then I translate the message with the built in translator. Update -The translator, which was an important tool for me to communicate with my ESL students' parents, was deleted. This feature need to be returned.

    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!
  • Good so far, but could use improvement Feb 22, 2018

    By Bre :~)
    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.

    Really great app! But, it's very annoying that you're not able to send a ton of pictures at once. I'm always bothered by the fact, that I have to click into each one and send it one at a time... Otherwise it's a great app. As a teacher, you like the ability to just send a whole bunch of pictures of an event, or just from every kid, to post them on the class chat. I'm editing this review here at the end of 2021, and I still feel the above-mentioned issue should be corrected ASAP Thank you again

    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.
  • Great for teachers Aug 30, 2018

    By mickeymahjong
    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.

    It was ok. It did work I guess. I never used it to communicate with anyone but did use it to tell someone to stop sending me texts because my student was no longer in a particular program. I did receive emails also. It was a little confusing at first to set up. You have to choose the correct school then the correct class. Hopefully the the teacher is listed! So good luck 👍
  • Very helpful, few minor flaws Sep 18, 2020

    By I am an echo
    “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.

    As an educator I LOVE this app/website and have used it for quite a few years. I have even used it as a coach with my husband's sports teams. I am having a lot of difficulty with attaching photos as of late which makes it very frustrating. The app just says "timeout" and won't continue. I end up just giving up, which is NOT what I want to do as this is my primary form of parent communication. I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled several times and get the same message. I tried 2 phones!

    Overall this app is a really good tool in the classroom it makes it easier to communicate with parents. The only thing that is disappointing is the amount of characters we can type on the announcements. It is very limited and it can be annoying having to type separate messages just to get the message accross.. other than that it is a really good app
  • Remind is a Great Alternative to Email May 20, 2021

    By LittleMrsGarcia
    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.
  • Easy easy easy Dec 11, 2019

    By tabernacleofgrace
    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.
  • Great app, just one small problem... Sep 8, 2019

    By Pixel Robot 9000
    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.
  • Some inconveniences Dec 3, 2020

    By frugalfotoMama
    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.

    Love the idea of this app but there are so many glitches. I have to close out of it every time I hit the 'back' button because it goes to a blank screen, will only get notifications about a third of the time, and now there is a character limit on individual messaging but no character counter so I have no idea how many I'm using. Debating switching to a different app for parent communication next year.
  • Great idea Oct 1, 2020

    By Smackadoo u
    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.

    This is still the way I prefer to communicate with my students & parents, but lately, this app has not been functioning properly. Sometimes when students respond to my messages, notifications of their responses don't show. Also, after reading a notification, when I read a message and click the arrow to go back, the screen is just white. This is very frustrating and I am looking for a new app to communicate with my parents & students!
  • App has been acting up Jun 11, 2019

    By mucha_lucha
    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.
  • Lots of positives but one huge negative Jul 13, 2020

    By userelevenfourteen
    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.
  • Great concept Aug 26, 2018

    By Ems mom Lynn
    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.
  • Great idea, challenging interface Sep 8, 2020

    By trisman4902
    The concept is great: a simple way to share reminders and urgent messages quickly via text with my class parents. The challenges I run in to every year is 1. fixing errors in the spelling of parents names (which is a problem when autocorrect changes Oriana to “Organs” and you don’t notice until after the invitation has been sent and accepted), and 2. Correcting mismatches in a couple’s names/numbers. For instance I accidentally linked a wife’s name to her husband’s phone. He accepted her invite (and his own) so now all announcements go to him. I’ve tried chatting and submitting help requests. I’ve been told the solution requires the parents to download the app, create an account, and fix the problem at their end. I appreciate the need to respect privacy, but that’s putting the onerous on the wrong party. Administrators have to be able to make simple corrections at our end.
  • Ok but... I Don't Want Notifications May 20, 2019

    By S-A-M-C
    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
  • Disappointed in last update Mar 12, 2022

    By hhmmttmm
    I love this app and I have been using it since 2015. I would have given it 5 stars up until the last update. I am really disappointed in the last update. It is now limiting the amount of characters in an individual message. When you are having an individual conversation with a parent and you are trying to answer their questions fully, it is hard to do in 140 characters. I completely understand the character limit for group messages but individual messages should not be limited. It makes our messages sound cold and short. I would really love it if this feature is changed back to its original form. If it doesn’t, I may have to consider another option that allows me to communicate effectively with all of my families and to meet their needs.

    This app constantly signs me out. It's annoying to log in so frequently. And then if you need a verification code it takes awhile to get to your email and times out in 30 minutes, so if you get distracted you have to start all over! Overall it used to work better when we used it a couple years ago. Went downhill. Easier to just communicate directly with their teachers. UPDATE: I have unsubscribed from all emails multiple times, I still keep getting junk from them. DON'T TRUST WITH YOUR INFO

It was the most efficient and easiest way to get a quick note out to my class! I've emailed help team & they say uninstall & reinstall the new version.

    By 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. :-( :-( :-(

    The interface is very awkward as a teacher writing messages. Some things are only easy to get to on the app, while some things are only easy to get to on a computer. But neither one is developed very smoothly. Also having trouble posting a sign up, where responses of people checking things off the list are not visible to others, to prevent duplicates.

    It's good but it has a lot of little bugs. For example, when I search students individually, it will always revert to my personal message with the last student I had up. Usually, when I get notifications, it shows me the very first message of that specific conversation. Also, sometimes it doesn't send a notification at all. Much better on computer.
  • Nov 12, 2020

    By Nicholas R.
    It does it's job, just rather difficult. The issue is that about every time I open it on my phone (LG Android if you need to know) it takes me to a sign in page and has me confirm my email unreasonably often and I can't seem to find a 'stay signed in' option. Another issue is that in order for a message to send, I have to close the app and open it again. However both of these issues seem to be far less occurring when using it on my iPad.
  • Mostly Great Dec 9, 2019

    By Carisjojo
    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!

    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?
  • Functionality differs between app and desktop site Sep 14, 2018

    By Pautler01
    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.
  • Mediocre. Services its purposes. Nov 24, 2018

    By MoodyGal2008
    Fine app considering it is free. The help/FAQ doesn’t match the actual app. Not sure if this is iOS specific, but even trying to change the “no replies” option can’t be done based on the archaic directions through Remind. There is a major character limit which is frustrating. It seems that at least a few sentences would be allowed. People (class members) are constantly confused about what they have to do or if they need the actual Remind app. I don’t find the layout to be particularly intuitive. Am definitely doing to be searching for an alternative. This app gives me some light frustration, but to reference the FAQ and it NOT having actual updated information and, in one case, the layout of the FAQ had the iOS instructions to the right and— wait for it— completely cut off the screen and out of view. Fine for a basic group messaging app, but even a minor setting change is an issue.

  • Terrible Sign up experience Aug 29, 2020

    By shouldntbehard
    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.
  • Horrible app!!!! Jan 26, 2020

    By Dosangel
    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 app is terrible! There are so many glitches. The screen flashes over and over again and the only thing you can do is uninstall it..... then reinstall it.... only to have it do the same thing all over again. When the app IS working (which is rare) it is NOT easy to use at all. The fact that you can't delete any conversations is ridiculous. When your child is done with a class you should be able to remove that class but that is not allowed. I could write 3 pages but word count won't allow it!
  • DO NOT USE THE TUTORING SERVICE Apr 21, 2022

    By Tink12511
    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 !!!
  • Can use some work Dec 12, 2018

    By Madmanea
    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.
  • I was hacked!!! My daughter may be kicked from swim thanks to this. Oct 2, 2019

    By worried mom.
    While I was sleeping someone wrote bad messages to my daughters school swim team group consisting of faculty parents and students. They used curse words and my daughter woke me up to find out what was going on and while the phone was sitting on my night stand with no one touching the phone, two more messages showing to come from me, appeared with more nasty words. I use this app to keep track of my kids school work and extracurricular activities. I have deleted the app, called the police to report this and have also reported this to my phone carrier. I was instructed to write a review about this experience to let the developers of this app know so that they can fix this so this does not happen again. My daughter may be kicked off the swim team over this!! Please fix this so no parent has to go through this EVER AGAIN. Sincerely, worried mom of crying daughter.
  • Notifications won’t go away and FAQ helps with nothing. Aug 22, 2021

    By JMaximTybo
    Remind gives me 20+ notifications for unread messages that aren’t there. This is extremely detrimental as, since many of my classes rely heavily on remind, it’s hard to tell whether I should check my remind when it gives me 20+ ghost notifications. I’ve checked their FAQ and have checked the All Classes tab and, despite the problem existing on both browser and iOS, I’ve updated and reinstalled Remind multiple times. I’ve sent Remind a request a few days ago and the lack of a response is disappointing. I wish I could use a different software but the insistence of my teachers to use this faulty app makes catching up with schoolwork a real difficulty, especially since some teachers have started using Remind as an avenue for last minute changes to assignments,
  • Cryptic Oct 20, 2017

    By sorry excuse for an app!!!
    This app is a bit confusing to navigate and make me severely miss last year’s simple colored dittos of the whole month in advance, which I could just hang and refer to visually ahead of time. While I understand this is the 1st go with these apps, it would have been nice to transition with the calendars also being sent out, which wouldn’t be too much to ask for (IMO). I’m still not sure how to get the most out of this app (IN ADDITION TO the other apps we must be separately signed in to). I, like other parents, am a bit frustrated with the transition and usability of all the different apps. I will continue to attempt to navigate this and my other two apps (as per students enrolled in separate classrooms), but was there no way to simply use one app that you could access each of our children’s classrooms as well? (Because those are each different and equally cryptic in nature). I’m a bit frustrated...
