ACTPhoto lets users capture and upload a photo of their face to submit to ACT. Beginning in October 2012, students registered to take the ACT are required to submit a photo of their face in order to take the test. Students will upload a photo of their face using their phone's camera or using an existing photo on their phone. On upload, ACTPhoto will verify whether the submitted photo is in fact a face and notify the user accordingly. Before final submittal, students must accept the "Photo Agreement" in order to submit their photo to ACT

  • Worked

    by iTouch 4G Works

    I was unsuccessful on uploading my photo on my computer, so I tried this. It worked nicely. It told me to use another picture that didn't show as much background, so I used the same picture and cropped it. Uploaded perfectly.

  • Very convenient

    by HelloKitty427

    Worked perfectly. It was very fast and easy to use.

  • Works perfectly fine

  • It worked fine

    by kustomer k

    I had no problems with the app at all.

  • Really???

    by Frgpndprncss

    Cannot get it to download! If it's something required, you'd think it would work! Wow...

  • Doesn't work

    by CallMeMom

    Doesn't work!

  • Horrible!

    by Anderson Lopez

    I just paid 36 dollars for the ACT registration, and then it asked me to upload a picture. I downloaded this app, and it is no good! I considered the idea that my device was the problem, but I restarted it, nothing. I uninstalled the app and it keeps giving me a connection error. I have no connection problems! Fix it quickly! This is my only method to upload a picture!

  • Terrible

    by Doctorstievebrul33

    This app is terrible. The only reason I downloaded it was because the website was even more broken. I had to log out on the computer before I could log into the app. I deleted it right after I uploaded my picture? Why would they even make this am option. I'll tell you why, because they want to make your day worse after you answered the questionnaire that is longer than Ulysses. I hate you ACT

  • Frustrated

    by Vhrīhbdhdbfhcjddhjxjd

    Horrible app. I get an error every time I try to login to my account.

  • Useless

    by LLMacD

    Every time I try to log in, it says an unexpected error occurred, to check my connection & try again. Other things work, including logging into the ACT Web version from my phone. Completely frustrating, since the Web version from my computer won't let me upload a photo either. Fix this!

  • Does not work. Won't even get past the log in page!

    by Knotman741

    Does not work. Errors while trying to log in. This works just as poorly as the ACT website which will not allow me to upload a photo. Please fix ASAP. I need to upload a photo else my son cannot take test. FIX!!!!!!!!!!

  • Not ready for use - took me 10 hours to complete the task!!!!!!

    by TCKxChewNrocks

    I could not get the app to respond in a timely manner with my iPhone 5 on wi-fi. What was even worse, was that I also could not upload my photo with my laptop as originally planned. I kept receiving an error message about all servers being busy. Very frustrating experience. Eventually at 2:00 A.M. I was easily able to use the app. The real problem is that their servers can not keep up. My experience was that it took 10 hours to complete this task. Thankfully, it was not close to the deadline. Fix the server problem!!!!!! Complying with registration rules should not be this hard!!!!!

  • Horrible

    by Crazy Brasilian

    This is literally the slowest most unresponsive app I've ever had to deal with. It is literally driving me insane. This app is going to be the reason I lose my mind. It is the bane of my existence. Please update this horrid app.

  • Unusable

    by Cole person

    Very disappointing. You can't even see the entire screen. Not iOS 7 or iPad compatible. Unusable and worthless when on an iPad with iOS 7.

  • Horrible

    by Love it gamerss

    Worst... App.. I've ever download in my life....

  • Does not work

    by Emetric

    App locks up after taking a photo. It will not let you continue. It only shows 1/4 of the screen and after I take a new photo and does not let click continue. I have tried over and over!

  • Terrible

    by Kwtanner

    The app wouldn't show the entire page and does not turn. I uploaded the photo but the submit button was off the screen so I couldn't submit. ACT...come on've got to do better than this!!!!

  • Dumb

    by Poopmcmaster

    This app is awful!! I only have half the screen!!!!

  • Doesn't Work on iPad

    by Gator_jesusrules

    When I open this app on my iPad mini, the screen is cut and only the left side is visible. Please make this app compatible to use on devices other than the iPhone!

  • Half an app

    by Ryancoe888

    Doesn't show the full app screen, can't submit photo thanks to that. FIX PLEASE!

  • Not ready for prime time

    by Danthe727man

    Impossible to upload a picture using this app on an iPad 2. Well it may be possible but after 4 uninstalls/reinstalls, I gave up.

  • Let's hope the test isn't as faulty.

    by A better developer

    Get a new, better developer for this app. I'm surprised that this developer forgot to account for the differing screen sizes of each Apple iOS device. For instance, an iPad is incapable of submitting a photo because only a portion of the app is shown. Either delete this statement on the website about it working on an iPad or fix the app. Any developer such as I could do it.

  • Not Functional

    by utrocket88

    If the idea of this app is to upload pics for registered ACT takers, it's a bust. Logs in fine & goes through the motions, but won't complete the process. Also attempted the "all caps username" on a lark...didn't even log in that way. It's not saving time or simplifying the process...either fix it or get rid of it, but as is, it's useless.

  • Bad app

    by I'msofly

    Let's me log in with all caps but doesn't load my photo. It need to be fixed

    by LeeLee96086

    by Fsuopolu

  • Too buggy

    by Grandads clothes

    Can't get it to work for ipad. It won't even show the whole screen, so I can't do anything. Then it crashes.

  • Bad bad bad

    by Emyzzzzz

    This is the worst app I have ever used. I could never get my picture to upload. After spending hours trying to get it to upload I finally gave up and decided to upload it manually on my laptop. So much for the convenience of this app...

  • ACT photo app stinks

    by Highly annoyed mom

    It does not work!! It would not accept my daughter's user ID and password, which work fine on the computer when logging in!

    by Shephard,Raven

    I tried for a week to log into my account on this app, and it said invalid username/password even though what i entered was correct. I missed my deadline for uploading a photo from this app. It needs to be fixed ASAP !

    by GregoryEC2013
