I've taken a lot of online college coursework and this is my least favorite app so far. On mobile, the chapters bounce around and reload when you leave the app and come back. The embedded videos are not centered well and sometimes mess with navigation as well. There is no read aloud feature. On PC, you are not able to put the screen in dark mode, and there's no easy way to see which assignments are completed.

This is quite literally paying to be marked as present. Sure it comes with other features, but I can do all of that with free programs. My biggest issues is that you have a buy subscriptions regularly, if it was like buying a clicker, where you only ever pay once, I may have given this 3 stars. I hope that I never have to support this rip off of a company ever again.

The app looks great at first; however, it starts giving you problems. These include not connecting to their servers or not submitting homework or inclass answers. The browser version was very slow for me too. This made it very frustrating and almost impossible to turn in some homework assignments either on time or at all. I would not recommend the use of the app or Top Hat in general.
