Increase the group number please
by christina3803 on 2019/11/21 03:11
It is very nice to be able to send the same message to many people at once, but it makes it very difficult to have a limited number of people it can be sent to who can interact with each other. It causes a lot of confusion because I am spending too much time be the one communicating the message back and forth between the groups.
Great tool
by Deguiseppegirl on 2019/11/21 02:23
This is such a great tool! With being a working mom this helps so much!
It’s okay😕😕
by Emily.pineapple on 2019/11/21 01:29
It’s okay but it could use some work. I mean I’m a student and I like to have so I can see if I need to do something for homework or something. I feel like it needs to show u your grades and what u made on assignments and stuff like that. I’m not completely satisfied with the app.

Not getting notifications
by Creature0057 on 2019/11/20 16:33
The app had been working fine for a while, but I haven’t received any notifications the few weeks. I’ve checked settings within the app and in my phones settings, but see no reason why they’ve stopped working. The only way I know if I have messages is to open the app to check.
Great app, but one ☝️ major issue: each message only allows 150 text characters.

by kiwibird0502 on 2019/11/19 21:08
This app is great for student teacher communication, however I wish that it had better text message and app communication. I get the notification for the text message and read with it and deal with it there, I wish it could tell when I had read the message and then would delete that notification on the app itself. I just find myself with 100’s of notifications about stuff from a while ago. I understand that this is a far stretch but it would be good to see. Great app nonetheless.

by cool savig on 2019/11/19 20:26
The App is excellent because i can send the teacher a message and she could respond he never she is able. I like how I am able to just send a message to one of the teachers. The app is much easier then emailing. Thank you

This app is a great quick and convenient way to communicate with teachers. I use this app daily to send a quick text to my children's teacher when I need to check on them. Bonus is you can also make and receive calls from them if they have that option set up

Great way to send educational videos to parents! So easy to show parents ways that they can support their child each week. More convenient for parents than parent make and takes or curriculum nights. It is like a conference at their finger tips. Also builds a strong relationship between the school and families. Highly recommend it.

Not user friendly
by BusyAKmama on 2019/11/17 19:54
I have been super irritated with this app when it comes to trying to communicate with the teachers. I can receive their messages successfully. However, if they have their replies turned off, it gets complicated. I am told to send them an announcement individually. So I waste several minutes of my time typing out a message that disappears into the void immediately, with no trace or explanation of what happened. If they do have settings that allow me to send them a message, I can see it at first, but it disappears if I leave the page. I can only retrieve that message if I have a history emailed to me or go online. It kind of makes having the app pointless. There is potential here, but needs a lot of work to make it user friendly.
Useful communicator

by elisaknits on 2019/11/17 18:31
Difficult to use. Finding accounts and sign up should be easy. Private messages should be clear, everything seems to be public. Other school apps are much more user friendly. I still hate this app. It’s still unclear if messages are private or public.
Easy access for communication
by EilieP on 2019/11/17 18:25
Remind enables communication between parents and teachers to be prompt. If our kids play sports, it’s an easy way to get information from coaches. All around it’s a reliable communication system, which I really like.

You can talk to your teacher and have conversations with them without being next to them and your teachers can tell you the homework and the pages if you weren’t there that day.

Remind is very helpful in being able to communicate with your teachers, school, and activities. My only issue is that sometimes I don’t receive messages and that even when I have checked all my messages there is still the little red marker saying I have one message. Very annoying. Anyway I would recommend this app overall because it improved communication and really helps connect students and families to their school!!

So not user-friendly. It’s fine for receiving messages but the ap is illogical to navigate. And, despite the ap help clearly showing how to leave groups they continue to appear in your account history. I accidentally joined the wrong group and now it’s there FOREVER! That’s just stupid.

First ever app review.... this should be used at every school!
by Amy E from AZ on 2019/03/08 19:23
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!
Good so far, but could use improvement
by Bre :~) on 2018/02/22 22:30
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.
Great for teachers
by mickeymahjong on 2018/08/30 23:55
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.
Jumbled
by I reviewed it! on 2019/04/01 12:01
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. :-( :-( :-(

by I made this for you! on 2018/02/02 01:04
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!
So happy with this App but..
by GoddessValynn on 2018/05/19 16:19
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!
Love Love Love this app!!!
by MamaBearKK on 2019/10/11 13:02
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!
Love this app
by R33S3Y on 2019/01/10 15:12
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 😉
Remind is AWESOME!
by Teacher3B on 2017/10/26 14:45
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! 🐝
Error
by *geeky~gamer~chic* on 2018/08/04 18:20
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.
Stopped before it started
by cynnatang on 2018/09/02 13:26
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.
App has been acting up
by mucha_lucha on 2019/06/11 13:20
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 Ap for parents
by NicoleRey on 2019/01/08 17:15
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
by Ems mom Lynn on 2018/08/26 07:36
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 app, just one small problem...
by Pixel Robot 9000 on 2019/09/08 15:20
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.
Great app that is easy to use
by rtkoch2829 on 2019/07/28 15:12
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.
Perfect for the High school and above student
by HelpfulSeniorStudent on 2019/01/23 21:56
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
Remind Review
by Reviews made by Wolf Girl on 2019/10/24 07:42
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! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Easy to set up and use. Very useful, just in case.
by Cybot iPhone on 2017/12/22 04:09
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
by Madmanea on 2018/12/12 00:30
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.
Very, very helpful
by 1234;678987554321 on 2018/11/09 19:49
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.
Ok but... I Don't Want Notifications
by S-A-M-C on 2019/05/20 23:28
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
by Pautler01 on 2018/09/14 13:48
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.
Remind
by TrenaMarie on 2019/01/08 18:11
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!
by rphub on 2019/09/20 12:46
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!
Teacher Essential
by LittleMissLys041 on 2018/02/17 01:58
Wow, where to start about Remind… I love this app so much. How is it not useful?! It helps me get out reminders that I forgot to tell my students in class, remind them about projects and long-term assignments, Develop relationships with students that may not typically speak up in class, and help answer questions or problems that students/parents have a quickly and efficiently. All of my students and their parents signed up for Remind at the beginning of the year. I hand out the instructions for how to sign up at back to school night and explain how I use it with the parents. I think one of the most exciting things that Remind has done recently is allow teachers to link their Google classroom account to their Remind account to streamline and makes it simple to send out important announcements that require an attached document to students in one quick click of a button. There are many more helpful qualities about this app, so I recommend downloading it and exploring. It is extremely user-friendly and easy to pick up without ever using it before and you don’t need another person to explain anything! I highly recommend this ANY teacher!!!
Avid User
by Yelrihs86 on 2018/12/04 19:49
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.
Mediocre. Services its purposes.
by MoodyGal2008 on 2018/11/24 06:07
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.
Perfect way to communicate with teachers!
by MomOf3Bubbers on 2019/01/19 00:00
I love how easy this makes staying in communication with teachers and the PTA. If I forget something and need to drop it off, I text the teacher. If I’m at the store at night and want to know if the class needs something, I can find out quickly. If I need clarification on homework, easy. If it’s my child’s birthday and I need to know how many treats to bring, I just shoot a quick text. This morning I woke up to a PTA reminder that today was crazy hair day. I totally forgot, but my kids were able to participate. Last week my preschooler was having a melt down at drop off. A few minutes later the teacher sent me a pic of him sitting happily on the carpet to set my mind at ease. This app is a MUST!
Useful, but needs at least one addition
by 5 pets too many on 2018/10/22 03:38
I teach preschool and just started using remind this school year. It is a great app and saves me a lot time since I can send out messages to everyone at once. My one problem is that I have a co-teacher and we have not been able to add her in a meaningful way without my winding up with her kids’ remind notices in my account. So consequently she is unable to communicate with parents directly. It would work much better if we both had the ability to communicate and could see all messages from parents but also remained independent. The character count initially gave me problems but I solved the issue by creating a poster, taking a screen shot of it and then sending it out. I’ve also done that with forms, etc. Now it’s not a big deal.
Very good and useful but....
by MacAlvin on 2018/01/24 12:35
Hello developer... it’s nice to have used your app but I would like an option to permanently delete classes which I have mistakenly create not just archived it. It’s good to have the archive still for re use of the class but what if I don’t use it anymore?, please kindly put an option to delete permanently class that is for sure not to be use anymore so that it wouldn’t clutter and pop out it’s kinda annoying though sorry... And one more thing, can you please allow at least 160 words to type on for my announcements for my classes. What I do nowadays is cut my messages to different messages kinda annoying to my students’ notification ... one notification is enough I think . Anyway, thank you for your time indeed a very good useful app, keep up the good apps. God bless...
Great app...just one problem for me
by Ellisshell on 2018/04/16 02:51
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 that...it 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
Great Communicator with Some Limitations
by 3DolceGirls on 2019/01/16 02:58
I have been using this app for three years with my middle school students and parents. Overall, it works very well for quick notifications for tests, a quiz, or homework. However, I’ve found the area to compose your message is limited. The space does not allow for a list/items, multiple dates, and/or descriptions. Sending each item can make for one’s cell phone to be ringing like crazy. Granted, if I needed to send a full email I could. For the teachers that are trying to cleverly hook/get their students attention, I feel more messaging space is needed. Parents have been super excited about the app and the more students who have access to a smart phone, iPod, etc. the more engaged they are. The result is independent and responsible learners.
Love this app
by Shopkins Cutie on 2019/10/12 14:18
This app keeps me up to date with what’s going on at school and other events that take place outside school. I can send pictures and videos to teachers to ask them questions if I’m confused or didn’t go to school that day to ask if they had any work for me to do so I can go pick it up. I also like the emojis that let you tell the teachers and administrators what we think about the remind that was sent. I have my own remind class and it is good for letting people know what is going to be happening and to tell them due dates and things like that. Overall remind is a great app and it’s a good resource to get the news that will be going on. Yeet. ✋🏻🤚🏻hands down the best education app I’ve ever utilized!!☺️
Really cool app; could easily increase functionality
by Gorzagh on 2018/07/07 08:09
First off: this app is great, and extremely convenient and efficient way of sending information to a class. My one main critique, although not dire, is something that could be easily fixed.I understand that this app is designed for schools and that’s great but I think it’s a useful tool for other things as well. It would be nice if instead of just having the option of “not affiliated” there was a custom affiliation that could be added. For example a private music teacher or dojo could list themselves there. Not super important even for these people, but it would be so easy to do and would encourage them to use this service a little more.
Reminds me of the DMV
by KronnHunter on 2018/02/13 02:41
Seems like it should be an essential app. Communicate with teachers and students. Make progress. Learn. Fail. Succeed. Fail some more. Succeed again. I love education. It’s one part of life that is constantly evolving. Bit this app needs some serious improvement and it seems like no one is even looking. I want to send my daughter’s teacher a message. He sends the entire class updates fairly regularly so he is definitely a user. I try first through his post to send him a direct reply. Nope. Can’t do that. So I search for his name. I enter his full last name and get a list of people that aren’t even remotely similar to what I typed. So I search by all names but the list is truncated at the first part of the M’s. Both his first and last names begin after that. Reverse order? No luck there either. Frustrating, to say the least. All I want to do is communicate with someone. Isn’t that what the app is for? Then why should it be difficult to do that? It shouldn’t be difficult to do the very something for which the app is designed. Since it is in this case, there is no way the app can receive any more than the two stars I gave it. Why two and not one? Because it’s a good concept. Now it has failed. No problem. Now fix it. As for the DMV reference... Thank you for reading. :-).
Love Remind! Wishing for a Teacher Subscription
by North Parian on 2018/12/12 02:10
I love remind and it’s option to translate between languages! The convenience of communicating with parents has helped foster a family-like classroom environment. I wish my principal would subscribe to the school-wide plan so that I could call parents through Remind and do-away with the character limits. However, she is not interested in paying for the subscription (despite my many efforts). I wish there were an option that would allow individual teachers to subscribe to these features. I would definitely pay out-of-pocket for this ability! Remind, you have changed my classroom for the better! Thank you!
Notifications are a problem
by mmsmeow on 2019/01/24 02:33
I am forced to use this app due to the new Verizon that will eliminate my use of the text message feature. The app now with the notifications on shows I have 3 unread messages yet all my messages are read. This is a problem because now I have no idea if I have actual messages or not due to this glitch. I have tried everything I can think of and the notification will not go away. I even uninstalled the app and reinstalled it which clearly doesn’t fix the problems. The app is glitchy and confusing because it has messages from two different groups o joined in the same message thread. I prefer the text messages! I think Verizon is being unfair but this is what we get for electing Trump because he allowed net neutrality to exist-net neutrality is why Verizon can do this to Remind.
Great communication tool, but...
by avid teacher in California on 2018/11/09 00:14
I use Remind all the time. Such a great tool for communication with students, parents, etc. I use it most on field trips. When the kids (high school) are let free for lunch, we use it to get them back together in time for our bus departure. No more late students! Also, I love the fact that you can schedule messages ahead of time & attach photos, files, etc. A true time saver. So why only 3 stars? First, the character limit is challenging. I sometimes have to send multiple messages instead of one and then I get irate replies from parents/students. Second, and more importantly, it’s been MONTHS and the false notifications still hasn’t been fixed. I’m showing 2 missed messages and I can’t get rid of the false missed message notification. It drives me crazy. Please fix this!
Great app, one suggestion...
by Str8nSF on 2017/10/05 13:44
Hello Remind development team! Thank you for providing an easy to use, and extremely necessary communications tool for students, teachers, parents, and administrators at our nation's institutions of learning. My family relies on Remind daily to keep informed of the latest class assignments, announcements, and school administration communications. I would like to make one suggestion related to notifications. I would like to customize notifications for each class that I belong to, such that I may choose the type of notification that I receive from each class. I know that simple is always better, but I would really like to see this 'complication' implemented if possible. Thank you again for a really great app!
I was hacked!!! My daughter may be kicked from swim thanks to this.
by worried mom. on 2019/10/02 04:35
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.
Great for communication
by ucanlearn on 2018/05/12 13:26
This App has been instrumental in helping our After School Program stay connected with our parents! When we are away on field trips we have this tool to send pictures of the great things we are doing! When our pick up location changes, we are able to send clear directions to the new pick-up area on campus with an image of the location attached. In meetings we can use the notification percentages to discuss communication responses and better ways of executing information. We like the fact that our sent messages must be brief and to the point. Thanks for creating such a wonderful app for parent/teacher communication.
Almost Amazing
by Kommander K on 2018/06/20 17:48
The app a great alternative to getting text messages in a ton of threads for different functions and has many more functions and controls which i don't even know if you can do with texting. However, it lacks the instant aspect of the text messages. Yes, notifications come through instantly, but to view them or reply, it takes a while. The notification system within the app feels glitchy, like how it doesn't show the new message instantly, the "unread" indicator doesn't always go away after it is read in all classes or within the class sometimes, and the app number badge doesn't go away all the time. Overall though, the app works well except for those annoying tendencies.
Excellent Communication Tool for Educators
by WPMommy on 2018/10/26 19:49
Love this App as a mother and former educator and counselor, this application has been proven to be a quick Communication resource for my kids that are in various extra-curricular activities, as well as, various grade levels. I'm able to respond to the coaches, band directors and/or coordinators of the different organizations, activities and functions. When there are alerts, or important information that is being relayed and the person sending the information allows you to respond you are able to ask pertinent questions that triggers them to maybe remember things they should send out to the rest of the group! 😇 I Love 💕 Remind 🙏🏈🚌 🎾🎺 🎶 🏀🧐
App is great, but photo problem
by MaddYd54321 on 2019/09/24 00:02
I love this app. I am a preschool teacher, and it is a great way to communicate with the parents of my students. That being said, I find the fact that you can only send one photo at a time to be a HUGE downside. I don't know if any of you have ever tried to take a picture of 10 one year olds where they are all looking at the camera and seem to be having a relatively good time, but it's almost impossible. It would be much more convenient if I were able to make an announcement and send a group of photos to all of the families, rather than having to send an individual to each family or blowing up all of their phones by sending each picture one by one to the whole class. Any ideas on if you guys will be fixing this issue?
Cost
by Sis Lawson on 2019/01/18 07:50
I love the app and being real time. It allows the teacher 24/7 access to parents. The only bad thing is Verizon is going to charge teachers a fee for distribution of text messages. This in no way pertains to the app this is total on Verizon. I don’t know if some input from the creators would help with this matter or not. Teachers can’t offed these cost bc it would mount to millions of dollars. I’m sure this isn’t what the creators intended. Teachers just can’t afford the cost. So please anyone with Verizon call the head office and let them know. If enough people complain maybe Verizon will back down and change their position on this. To good of an app to have this done to it.
Cryptic
by sorry excuse for an app!!! on 2017/10/20 10:42
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...
Great app
by Beachbumaak on 2019/09/30 12:06
I think this app is a great way to communicate with my kids’ many teachers. My only drawback is that you cannot group the classes. It would be even better if you could separate the classes under different “kids”. I have a high schooler, a middle schooler, and two in elementary school. The classes are usually labeled under the teachers name, and not necessarily the grade. This makes it kind of confusing if you don’t know every teachers name for all of their classes. I have about 20 classes all in one line and there’s no way to group them together to help differentiate them. High school classes mixed with elementary Lolol. Other than that, it’s great. If they fix it so you can clump the classes together per kid, I’d give it 5 stars!
Great for high school
by Trinick71 on 2018/07/12 01:59
Remind offers a great way to find students where they are: on their phones! My students rarely check email, but Remind allows me to text them without any creepy exchange of numbers! I choose to allow students to contact me as well, but that’s the teacher’s choice. You can send whole class messages, individual messages, or even a group message. Warning: If you send a message to a group (not whole class), then kids in the group see one another’s responses; if you send a whole class message, then only you see any student responses. Overall, I love Remind and have been using it for quite a while.

Increase the group number please
by christina3803 on 2019/11/21 03:11
It is very nice to be able to send the same message to many people at once, but it makes it very difficult to have a limited number of people it can be sent to who can interact with each other. It causes a lot of confusion because I am spending too much time be the one communicating the message back and forth between the groups.
Great tool

This is such a great tool! With being a working mom this helps so much!
It’s okay😕😕

It’s okay but it could use some work. I mean I’m a student and I like to have so I can see if I need to do something for homework or something. I feel like it needs to show u your grades and what u made on assignments and stuff like that. I’m not completely satisfied with the app.

Not getting notifications
by Creature0057 on 2019/11/20 16:33
The app had been working fine for a while, but I haven’t received any notifications the few weeks. I’ve checked settings within the app and in my phones settings, but see no reason why they’ve stopped working. The only way I know if I have messages is to open the app to check.
Great app, but one ☝️ major issue: each message only allows 150 text characters.

by kiwibird0502 on 2019/11/19 21:08
This app is great for student teacher communication, however I wish that it had better text message and app communication. I get the notification for the text message and read with it and deal with it there, I wish it could tell when I had read the message and then would delete that notification on the app itself. I just find myself with 100’s of notifications about stuff from a while ago. I understand that this is a far stretch but it would be good to see. Great app nonetheless.
Mom
by cool savig on 2019/11/19 20:26

Curriculum Night in hand
by GWW7 on 2019/11/19 02:24
Great way to send educational videos to parents! So easy to show parents ways that they can support their child each week. More convenient for parents than parent make and takes or curriculum nights. It is like a conference at their finger tips. Also builds a strong relationship between the school and families. Highly recommend it.

Not user friendly
by BusyAKmama on 2019/11/17 19:54
I have been super irritated with this app when it comes to trying to communicate with the teachers. I can receive their messages successfully. However, if they have their replies turned off, it gets complicated. I am told to send them an announcement individually. So I waste several minutes of my time typing out a message that disappears into the void immediately, with no trace or explanation of what happened. If they do have settings that allow me to send them a message, I can see it at first, but it disappears if I leave the page. I can only retrieve that message if I have a history emailed to me or go online. It kind of makes having the app pointless. There is potential here, but needs a lot of work to make it user friendly.
Useful communicator

Difficult to use. Finding accounts and sign up should be easy. Private messages should be clear, everything seems to be public. Other school apps are much more user friendly. I still hate this app. It’s still unclear if messages are private or public.
Easy access for communication

You can talk to your teacher and have conversations with them without being next to them and your teachers can tell you the homework and the pages if you weren’t there that day.

Remind is very helpful in being able to communicate with your teachers, school, and activities. My only issue is that sometimes I don’t receive messages and that even when I have checked all my messages there is still the little red marker saying I have one message. Very annoying. Anyway I would recommend this app overall because it improved communication and really helps connect students and families to their school!!

So not user-friendly. It’s fine for receiving messages but the ap is illogical to navigate. And, despite the ap help clearly showing how to leave groups they continue to appear in your account history. I accidentally joined the wrong group and now it’s there FOREVER! That’s just stupid.

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!
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.
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.
Jumbled
by I reviewed it! on 2019/04/01 12:01
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. :-( :-( :-(

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!
So happy with this App but..
by GoddessValynn on 2018/05/19 16:19
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!
Love Love Love this app!!!
by MamaBearKK on 2019/10/11 13:02
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!
Love this app
by R33S3Y on 2019/01/10 15:12
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 😉
Remind is AWESOME!
by Teacher3B on 2017/10/26 14:45
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! 🐝
Error
by *geeky~gamer~chic* on 2018/08/04 18:20
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.
Stopped before it started
by cynnatang on 2018/09/02 13:26
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.
App has been acting up
by mucha_lucha on 2019/06/11 13:20
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 Ap for parents
by NicoleRey on 2019/01/08 17:15
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
by Ems mom Lynn on 2018/08/26 07:36
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 app, just one small problem...
by Pixel Robot 9000 on 2019/09/08 15:20
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.
Great app that is easy to use
by rtkoch2829 on 2019/07/28 15:12
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.
Perfect for the High school and above student
by HelpfulSeniorStudent on 2019/01/23 21:56
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
Remind Review
by Reviews made by Wolf Girl on 2019/10/24 07:42
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! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Easy to set up and use. Very useful, just in case.
by Cybot iPhone on 2017/12/22 04:09
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
by Madmanea on 2018/12/12 00:30
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.
Very, very helpful
by 1234;678987554321 on 2018/11/09 19:49
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.
Ok but... I Don't Want Notifications
by S-A-M-C on 2019/05/20 23:28
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
by Pautler01 on 2018/09/14 13:48
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.
Remind
by TrenaMarie on 2019/01/08 18:11
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!
by rphub on 2019/09/20 12:46
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!
Teacher Essential
by LittleMissLys041 on 2018/02/17 01:58
Wow, where to start about Remind… I love this app so much. How is it not useful?! It helps me get out reminders that I forgot to tell my students in class, remind them about projects and long-term assignments, Develop relationships with students that may not typically speak up in class, and help answer questions or problems that students/parents have a quickly and efficiently. All of my students and their parents signed up for Remind at the beginning of the year. I hand out the instructions for how to sign up at back to school night and explain how I use it with the parents. I think one of the most exciting things that Remind has done recently is allow teachers to link their Google classroom account to their Remind account to streamline and makes it simple to send out important announcements that require an attached document to students in one quick click of a button. There are many more helpful qualities about this app, so I recommend downloading it and exploring. It is extremely user-friendly and easy to pick up without ever using it before and you don’t need another person to explain anything! I highly recommend this ANY teacher!!!
Avid User
by Yelrihs86 on 2018/12/04 19:49
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.
Mediocre. Services its purposes.
by MoodyGal2008 on 2018/11/24 06:07
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.
Perfect way to communicate with teachers!
by MomOf3Bubbers on 2019/01/19 00:00
I love how easy this makes staying in communication with teachers and the PTA. If I forget something and need to drop it off, I text the teacher. If I’m at the store at night and want to know if the class needs something, I can find out quickly. If I need clarification on homework, easy. If it’s my child’s birthday and I need to know how many treats to bring, I just shoot a quick text. This morning I woke up to a PTA reminder that today was crazy hair day. I totally forgot, but my kids were able to participate. Last week my preschooler was having a melt down at drop off. A few minutes later the teacher sent me a pic of him sitting happily on the carpet to set my mind at ease. This app is a MUST!
Useful, but needs at least one addition
by 5 pets too many on 2018/10/22 03:38
I teach preschool and just started using remind this school year. It is a great app and saves me a lot time since I can send out messages to everyone at once. My one problem is that I have a co-teacher and we have not been able to add her in a meaningful way without my winding up with her kids’ remind notices in my account. So consequently she is unable to communicate with parents directly. It would work much better if we both had the ability to communicate and could see all messages from parents but also remained independent. The character count initially gave me problems but I solved the issue by creating a poster, taking a screen shot of it and then sending it out. I’ve also done that with forms, etc. Now it’s not a big deal.
Very good and useful but....
by MacAlvin on 2018/01/24 12:35
Hello developer... it’s nice to have used your app but I would like an option to permanently delete classes which I have mistakenly create not just archived it. It’s good to have the archive still for re use of the class but what if I don’t use it anymore?, please kindly put an option to delete permanently class that is for sure not to be use anymore so that it wouldn’t clutter and pop out it’s kinda annoying though sorry... And one more thing, can you please allow at least 160 words to type on for my announcements for my classes. What I do nowadays is cut my messages to different messages kinda annoying to my students’ notification ... one notification is enough I think . Anyway, thank you for your time indeed a very good useful app, keep up the good apps. God bless...
Great app...just one problem for me
by Ellisshell on 2018/04/16 02:51
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 that...it 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
Great Communicator with Some Limitations
by 3DolceGirls on 2019/01/16 02:58
I have been using this app for three years with my middle school students and parents. Overall, it works very well for quick notifications for tests, a quiz, or homework. However, I’ve found the area to compose your message is limited. The space does not allow for a list/items, multiple dates, and/or descriptions. Sending each item can make for one’s cell phone to be ringing like crazy. Granted, if I needed to send a full email I could. For the teachers that are trying to cleverly hook/get their students attention, I feel more messaging space is needed. Parents have been super excited about the app and the more students who have access to a smart phone, iPod, etc. the more engaged they are. The result is independent and responsible learners.
Love this app
by Shopkins Cutie on 2019/10/12 14:18
This app keeps me up to date with what’s going on at school and other events that take place outside school. I can send pictures and videos to teachers to ask them questions if I’m confused or didn’t go to school that day to ask if they had any work for me to do so I can go pick it up. I also like the emojis that let you tell the teachers and administrators what we think about the remind that was sent. I have my own remind class and it is good for letting people know what is going to be happening and to tell them due dates and things like that. Overall remind is a great app and it’s a good resource to get the news that will be going on. Yeet. ✋🏻🤚🏻hands down the best education app I’ve ever utilized!!☺️
Really cool app; could easily increase functionality
by Gorzagh on 2018/07/07 08:09
First off: this app is great, and extremely convenient and efficient way of sending information to a class. My one main critique, although not dire, is something that could be easily fixed.I understand that this app is designed for schools and that’s great but I think it’s a useful tool for other things as well. It would be nice if instead of just having the option of “not affiliated” there was a custom affiliation that could be added. For example a private music teacher or dojo could list themselves there. Not super important even for these people, but it would be so easy to do and would encourage them to use this service a little more.
Reminds me of the DMV
by KronnHunter on 2018/02/13 02:41
Seems like it should be an essential app. Communicate with teachers and students. Make progress. Learn. Fail. Succeed. Fail some more. Succeed again. I love education. It’s one part of life that is constantly evolving. Bit this app needs some serious improvement and it seems like no one is even looking. I want to send my daughter’s teacher a message. He sends the entire class updates fairly regularly so he is definitely a user. I try first through his post to send him a direct reply. Nope. Can’t do that. So I search for his name. I enter his full last name and get a list of people that aren’t even remotely similar to what I typed. So I search by all names but the list is truncated at the first part of the M’s. Both his first and last names begin after that. Reverse order? No luck there either. Frustrating, to say the least. All I want to do is communicate with someone. Isn’t that what the app is for? Then why should it be difficult to do that? It shouldn’t be difficult to do the very something for which the app is designed. Since it is in this case, there is no way the app can receive any more than the two stars I gave it. Why two and not one? Because it’s a good concept. Now it has failed. No problem. Now fix it. As for the DMV reference... Thank you for reading. :-).
Love Remind! Wishing for a Teacher Subscription
by North Parian on 2018/12/12 02:10
I love remind and it’s option to translate between languages! The convenience of communicating with parents has helped foster a family-like classroom environment. I wish my principal would subscribe to the school-wide plan so that I could call parents through Remind and do-away with the character limits. However, she is not interested in paying for the subscription (despite my many efforts). I wish there were an option that would allow individual teachers to subscribe to these features. I would definitely pay out-of-pocket for this ability! Remind, you have changed my classroom for the better! Thank you!
Notifications are a problem
by mmsmeow on 2019/01/24 02:33
I am forced to use this app due to the new Verizon that will eliminate my use of the text message feature. The app now with the notifications on shows I have 3 unread messages yet all my messages are read. This is a problem because now I have no idea if I have actual messages or not due to this glitch. I have tried everything I can think of and the notification will not go away. I even uninstalled the app and reinstalled it which clearly doesn’t fix the problems. The app is glitchy and confusing because it has messages from two different groups o joined in the same message thread. I prefer the text messages! I think Verizon is being unfair but this is what we get for electing Trump because he allowed net neutrality to exist-net neutrality is why Verizon can do this to Remind.
Great communication tool, but...
by avid teacher in California on 2018/11/09 00:14
I use Remind all the time. Such a great tool for communication with students, parents, etc. I use it most on field trips. When the kids (high school) are let free for lunch, we use it to get them back together in time for our bus departure. No more late students! Also, I love the fact that you can schedule messages ahead of time & attach photos, files, etc. A true time saver. So why only 3 stars? First, the character limit is challenging. I sometimes have to send multiple messages instead of one and then I get irate replies from parents/students. Second, and more importantly, it’s been MONTHS and the false notifications still hasn’t been fixed. I’m showing 2 missed messages and I can’t get rid of the false missed message notification. It drives me crazy. Please fix this!
Great app, one suggestion...
by Str8nSF on 2017/10/05 13:44
Hello Remind development team! Thank you for providing an easy to use, and extremely necessary communications tool for students, teachers, parents, and administrators at our nation's institutions of learning. My family relies on Remind daily to keep informed of the latest class assignments, announcements, and school administration communications. I would like to make one suggestion related to notifications. I would like to customize notifications for each class that I belong to, such that I may choose the type of notification that I receive from each class. I know that simple is always better, but I would really like to see this 'complication' implemented if possible. Thank you again for a really great app!
I was hacked!!! My daughter may be kicked from swim thanks to this.
by worried mom. on 2019/10/02 04:35
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.
Great for communication
by ucanlearn on 2018/05/12 13:26
This App has been instrumental in helping our After School Program stay connected with our parents! When we are away on field trips we have this tool to send pictures of the great things we are doing! When our pick up location changes, we are able to send clear directions to the new pick-up area on campus with an image of the location attached. In meetings we can use the notification percentages to discuss communication responses and better ways of executing information. We like the fact that our sent messages must be brief and to the point. Thanks for creating such a wonderful app for parent/teacher communication.
Almost Amazing
by Kommander K on 2018/06/20 17:48
The app a great alternative to getting text messages in a ton of threads for different functions and has many more functions and controls which i don't even know if you can do with texting. However, it lacks the instant aspect of the text messages. Yes, notifications come through instantly, but to view them or reply, it takes a while. The notification system within the app feels glitchy, like how it doesn't show the new message instantly, the "unread" indicator doesn't always go away after it is read in all classes or within the class sometimes, and the app number badge doesn't go away all the time. Overall though, the app works well except for those annoying tendencies.
Excellent Communication Tool for Educators
by WPMommy on 2018/10/26 19:49
Love this App as a mother and former educator and counselor, this application has been proven to be a quick Communication resource for my kids that are in various extra-curricular activities, as well as, various grade levels. I'm able to respond to the coaches, band directors and/or coordinators of the different organizations, activities and functions. When there are alerts, or important information that is being relayed and the person sending the information allows you to respond you are able to ask pertinent questions that triggers them to maybe remember things they should send out to the rest of the group! 😇 I Love 💕 Remind 🙏🏈🚌 🎾🎺 🎶 🏀🧐
App is great, but photo problem
by MaddYd54321 on 2019/09/24 00:02
I love this app. I am a preschool teacher, and it is a great way to communicate with the parents of my students. That being said, I find the fact that you can only send one photo at a time to be a HUGE downside. I don't know if any of you have ever tried to take a picture of 10 one year olds where they are all looking at the camera and seem to be having a relatively good time, but it's almost impossible. It would be much more convenient if I were able to make an announcement and send a group of photos to all of the families, rather than having to send an individual to each family or blowing up all of their phones by sending each picture one by one to the whole class. Any ideas on if you guys will be fixing this issue?
Cost
by Sis Lawson on 2019/01/18 07:50
I love the app and being real time. It allows the teacher 24/7 access to parents. The only bad thing is Verizon is going to charge teachers a fee for distribution of text messages. This in no way pertains to the app this is total on Verizon. I don’t know if some input from the creators would help with this matter or not. Teachers can’t offed these cost bc it would mount to millions of dollars. I’m sure this isn’t what the creators intended. Teachers just can’t afford the cost. So please anyone with Verizon call the head office and let them know. If enough people complain maybe Verizon will back down and change their position on this. To good of an app to have this done to it.
Cryptic
by sorry excuse for an app!!! on 2017/10/20 10:42
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...
Great app
by Beachbumaak on 2019/09/30 12:06
I think this app is a great way to communicate with my kids’ many teachers. My only drawback is that you cannot group the classes. It would be even better if you could separate the classes under different “kids”. I have a high schooler, a middle schooler, and two in elementary school. The classes are usually labeled under the teachers name, and not necessarily the grade. This makes it kind of confusing if you don’t know every teachers name for all of their classes. I have about 20 classes all in one line and there’s no way to group them together to help differentiate them. High school classes mixed with elementary Lolol. Other than that, it’s great. If they fix it so you can clump the classes together per kid, I’d give it 5 stars!
Great for high school
by Trinick71 on 2018/07/12 01:59
Remind offers a great way to find students where they are: on their phones! My students rarely check email, but Remind allows me to text them without any creepy exchange of numbers! I choose to allow students to contact me as well, but that’s the teacher’s choice. You can send whole class messages, individual messages, or even a group message. Warning: If you send a message to a group (not whole class), then kids in the group see one another’s responses; if you send a whole class message, then only you see any student responses. Overall, I love Remind and have been using it for quite a while.
