Recent Reviews and Comments

  • Works fine

    Upload was fast and easy, but there's really no need for this app. It's not difficult to get a webpage that allows mobile devices to upload images. It was also unnecessary for the app to ask for location.

  • Literal trash

    You'd think that one of the largest college placement tests in the nation would have their act together when it comes to creating an app that does nothing more than help you submit a picture. You'd be wrong. This app is horrible at the singular task for which it is designed, and features clunky and outdated aesthetics. The real back breaker is that I tried to submit the EXACT SAME picture I used for the SAT, but it didn't work. When I finally get a picture I think is suitable, I get slapped with "unexpected error" after "unexpected error". A novice could make a far simpler, and more effective means of submitting a picture than these paid professionals.

  • Liars

    Alrighty let's get one thing straight. Any review that says this app is GOOD! Is either a liar or a bot. I am ready to kill myself after trying to use this app. Emphasis on trying because it doesn't even work! Hey ACT test! If you wanted to be hip, cool, and relevant, try hiring a competent programmer. This app won't even let me sign into my account it's so broken. I am literally ready to embrace death and I haven't even taken your test yet. Get good. Try again

  • Can't sign in

    This app is dreadful. I can't sign in to my account to post the picture because it always says there's an "unknown error." Thanks ACT

  • So mad!!!! Zero stars!!

    Stupid thing won't download my picture and now I can't even log on. What an absolute waste of time and energy!!!!!!! Wish I could just get my money back from ACT!!!

  • Doesn't work

    Does not let you log in


    Doesn't work!!!!

  • Aghhhhh

    I hate this app

  • Literally unusable

    Doesn't work

  • Straight up doesn't work.

    I cannot upload or take a photo without being logged out 'due to inactivity.' Truly confused, don't know what to do at this point.

  • Absolutely horrible!

    Every time I tried to upload my photo ID, it said I was logged out due to inactivity. When in reality I didn't go 20 seconds without touching my phone screen and attempting to upload the photo. This app is pathetic, especially considering all of the money the college board is making through the act, like they can't afford to make a proper app?

  • Impossible to use

    Every time I try to select a photo to submit, the app logs me out. If you can't even make a functional app, what are you doing being in charge of such an important test? So frustrating.

  • Terrible!

    The app is logging me out due to inactivity before the picture uploads. It literally takes me 3 seconds to upload an existing picture and then logs me out during the upload process.

  • worthless

    the worst, tells me to click to upload a photo but then crashes "due to inactivity" when it forcibly moves me out of the app to select a photo, therefore not letting me upload a photo which is the only reason for this stupid app

  • Doesn't even work

    Once I either select a picture or take a new once once I click submit I instantly get signed out for inactivity

  • Has anyone tested this??

    The only thing that is reliable with this app so far has been the login! The overall design is not intuitive or friendly, and basic flows like uploading a photo errors out (inactivity timeout, even though was actively uploading the photo!) fails repeatedly. As a software developer, I tried to upload in different ways thinking perhaps one user flow was in error, but nothing works! The website is not much better but hoping that's been more tested. Disappointing!

  • Terrible

    Terrible app

  • Does not work AT ALL

    I wouldn't even bother downloading it. Every time I tried to upload a picture it would sign me out. EVERY TIME. Not worth it.

  • What's wrong with you?

    I payed money and you expect me to upload a picture yet this app is garbage. Where does my money go too?

  • Terrible

    Signed me out when I would upload my photo.

  • 👎🏼

    Have repeatedly tried to upload photo. App keeps crashing saying "signed out due to inactivity". Ridiculous.

  • Stupid app

    This app is STUPID! Every time I kept trying to select a photo it sign me out due to inactivity!!! I would never used this again! Why can't you just upload the picture from the mobile website!

  • Didn't do it's job

    I can log into the app just fine. But as soon as I try to upload a picture it logs me out due to "inactivity" every single time. It doesn't work on a very basic level.

  • Defeats the purpose

    Every time I attempt to upload my photo, it will automatically time me out "due to inactivity". This is extremely frustrating and insist the glitch be corrected ASAP,

  • Broken

    Whenever I try to upload a photo it signs me out and says I was inactive. It is a broken app and it is ridiculous that I have to upload a photo but your app can't even work

  • Awful

    The app is constantly malfunctioning. I would log onto the app and choose my picture in under 30 seconds and the app would log me out "due to inactivity".



  • So functional...

    Every time I try to upload a picture or take one to upload, it logs me out "due to inactivity" even though I literally just pressed the buttons and did it as fast as I could.

  • Why even create an app that dosen't work ?

    Downloaded the app on 3 different devices and it still logs out when you upload a photo. Whoever developed this app should be fired....

  • Broken

    Can not pull through with its purpose. I went to upload a photo and it logged me out. No matter how many times I try to do so it will not work. Hopefully you are able to fix this app. Taking the photo through a webcam isn't practical nor easy to meet the requirements.

  • The app needs an update

    I'm trying to upload a picture and the app keeps logging me out. I've tried at least 5 times in the last 15 minutes and the same thing keeps happening.

  • Broken and useless

    After logging in and selecting a photo it says "logged out due to inactivity" even though I had logged in less than a minute ago, it also tried to track my location even when outside the app, do not download, there is a photo upload option on the website, it is just not immediately apparent

  • Aweful

    After using this app I failed my test

  • Why a Photo?

    I'm a high school student who's going to be taking my test. I fully registered for it, but it won't allow me to get my ticket because it needs a photo of me. I have an ID card that all high school students have, so why can't we use them instead?

  • God awful

    This is app is awful. Can't even login without it saying "wrong user ID." You'd think ACT could come up with something better than this.

  • Garbage.

    Not even worth your time. Just email yourself the photo and upload it on a desktop/laptop.

  • This is RE fricken DICULOUS!!!

    I spend all of that time completing the ACT profile only to be required to download a stupid app from my mobile devise on the app instead of just uploading the flipping picture from the mobile device. Freaking middle man/app. Only to discover the APP does not take my user id/password combination! What a crock of sh**!

  • I never do app reviews but...

    Okay, why the hell do you have to download an app just to upload a photo? You'll only have to do it once! This is literally the dumbest app in the AppStore.

  • Pretty stupid

    The entire app is unnecessary, get it together jesus, those paid reviews arent fooling anyone

  • It won't let me log it

    Title says it all.

  • Easy

    This app was self explanatory and simple. I was able to upload a photo for my admission ticket in around one minute! Great app!

  • Frustrating

    Once you submit a photo you cannot change that photo. I learned from experience🙃🙃🙃. Other than that it's simple.

  • Crashes all the time

    Every time I submit a photo and try to go back it crashes and I always have to delete it and re download it for it to work

  • Awful

    This app is awful. Every time I take a picture it zooms in on my face and shifts to the right. I press the retake button which freezes every time. I have to exit out of the app and log back in. I have been working on uploading a picture for the past thirty minutes.

  • There is no problem with the app however...

    I went to upload my photo as is the procedure... And instead of letting me upload it right to the website I had to download this app.... So, somewhat apprehensively I went to download this app and upload my photo... It asked permission for the app to use my location even when not in use, hell no. And to use my photos. i selected my picture and uploaded it. Then it singed me out... And here is my problem I can't download my ticket now 😑. There is simply nothing wrong with providing a standard government issue or school issue ID. And if you're going to go against convention, for no discernible reason don't make it so counter intuitive.


    I love this so much! I love yelling

  • Terrible!!

    It keeps saying that I'm not connected!! And the website won't accept my picture, we have to download an app that doesn't even function properly!!!

  • Functional way to get photo

    With this app it took me about 5 minutes to take a photo and print out the ticket. Does exactly what it needs to.

  • Terrible cropping

    Took the photo but couldn’t get it to crop correctly. It seems like it would be easy to do since so many other apps allow it. Not sure why ACT doesn’t allow us to do it ourselves. Would be a great app if we could do that

  • Got the job done

    All I needed was to take and upload a picture of myself for the ACT test, downloaded the app, less than a minute later my picture is uploaded. Worked perfectly.
