Perfect for adaptive quizzing!! Saving yourself time looking up answers to some random question from the caption of a picture in a random textbook isn’t cheating. :) Busy work, no more! Used it for the first time tonight - half asleep and I remembered I had an assignment due in a couple hours. The assignment was an adaptive quiz where you had to answer questions until you “leveled up”. I didn’t have to spend hours answering the same kinds of questions over and over and wasting time looking up answers in the book so it didn’t hurt my percentage. I scan the question, and while it is searching (only a few seconds), I would answer the question on my own. Submit if I guessed it right, and change it if I guessed wrong. Saves so much time because once you answer, the rationale is right there. Can’t believe I’m only not discovering this app... but I’m beyond thankful nonetheless. *EDIT: Obviously use the app wisely. Don’t substitute it for knowledge, and always verify your answers. The answers are pulled from Quizlet and like sources, that are made by students just like us. But if I know some tiny tidbit isn’t going to be on my professor’s exam, it can be a little hard to justify reading six paragraphs on the topic to try to find my answer. And here comes in - Socratic!

As an upperclassman in high school: take my word for this - this app is amazing! As an AP/honors students I sure know what it’s like to not do assignments (due to tiredness, laziness, or legitimate reasons) or copy from friends the period before the assignment is due. I also know what it’s like to be an active user of Quizlet whenever I need to look up some test or quiz answers for reviews/studying or for straight up cheating (lol). But what we all know is that searching up each individual question on google and then having to go through several Quizlets to find the correct answers for each and every one can be quite time consuming and tedious. However, with this wonderful app it finds all the Quizlets for you in an instant by just taking a picture of the question! Even if Socratic can’t find an answer, it provides the user with at least a legitimate, scholarly definition of the subject matter of your question! In short, Socratic is a amazing and l totally recommend it to any type of student! Honestly, Socratic came through and helped me passed my finals this semester!

When I was in high school, I was struggling with math, I didn’t know how calculus or inequalities work. I was failing class due to the teacher failing to teach us about the importance on how to do those equations. When I saw my friend use the app called Socratic, he really helped me and he told me “the teacher doesn’t do anything for us, that’s why I am cheating” and I agreed. Then he told me to get the app and I asked “what’s it called” he told me Socratic. I installed the app and it really helped me. The app helped my grade be gained by 67%, but there was a catch tho, the problem was it was prohibited by using the app due to it was called cheating, so I decided to using the app in secret, I didn’t get caught for the first 2 months and when I did, I only lost that small quiz not he whole entire grade. To conclude this review, I would personally recommend Socratic due to it really helps you with your work especially when your in school. Just don’t get caught or else u would lose more credits than gain credits.

I’ve had Socratic for maybe about half a year now and then thing is it would work perfectly in the beginning for the first maybe like 4 months. (It would be helpful if more information was provided when needs help in something.) Well besides that like I was saying, it worked blah blah, right? It’s an amazing app don’t get me wrong but whenever I would try and take a picture it would say “no text found” when the text is clearly visible. My camera is completely fine, the spelling is excellent. I have had more “worse” spelling than I have today. I’ve improved on it and it won’t get it right. Like back the it would work, you’re probably thinking; huh?!? exactly! I tried an example and wrote cat. I ended up getting x. I got x for all the words I spelled. Or it would say “no text found” or something similar which made no absolute sense. Cmon ,Socratic, you can do better than this. Again I love this app but this disappointed me :( xoxo, Mia

To whoever is reading this, you must be confused to why everyone is talking about why the update sucked, and what did they exactly update well here’s an explanation Before the update this app would both give you the answer but explain it in a way where you knew how to do the rest of the math problems you needed help with initially. I sometimes used it just for the answers, but most times it was because I had trouble with a specific problem. Some math problems got more complicated and to understand it I would use this app, it would go into a step by step process to make sure you, the user, understood how to do the problem. Sometimes it would provide links and would show you graphs so you fully understood. I also used it to check my answers to see if they were right. Now after the update you can’t really do any of that. It tells you how to do specific things but doesn’t show the step by step on how to do the problem. For example you could in put, 5+4-3, and it’d show you how to add and subtract but wouldn’t show you step by step what to add or subtract first. I used to love and recommend this app but this partnership and new update completely ruined the app for me.
