    I liked the appointment schedule on the previous version, but this is lost on the recent update (Dec2017). The app now has none of my future appts available. Need to fix that. Fixed (Feb2018) Full Review

    Nice start it would be 2x as good, if you could do Rapid Pass from the app or a smrt phone. I like being able to follow my donation. Full Review

    Its only good for making appointments, and rapid pass. You can't share any of your accomplishments with anyone. Maybe it works better with Apple. Full Review

    Very convenient setup for booking and tracking donations. After having the rapid pass display improved, the app is now fully functional. Full Review

    Your App is missing location dates and times that can be found on your website. It's easier and quicker to bypass the app and go straight into your website. Full Review

    The app is really great for finding blood drives and it's nice to be able to have my donor card easily available. I have had problems with the in app rapid pass. I've used it twice and both times the Red Cross person said it had the wrong date. I brought along the print out and that on works, so I guess I'll just do that until the rapid pass gets fixed. I really like the blood tracking feature, I enjoy seeing where my blood went. Full Review

    It's a start, but I wouldn't consider the Rapid Pass "within the app".. It's just a redirect to the website that opens in the browser, which is better than nothing I suppose.. However, it would be nice to have it actually within the app and the responses save to your profile thus only needing a review before each donation... Please make it happen Red Cross! Full Review

    I like the potential this app has as I've seen how well it works for a friend of mine but it doesn't want to work for me. It hasn't added my donation history, it hasn't added my blood type and it never tells me when there's a blood drive near me. If you ever get that fixed I'm sure it'll be a 5 star app Full Review

    Linda T Published date: February 9, 2018

    Rapid Pass would not generate an image to read so had to answer the questions again at the Red Cross building. Also when you schedule an appointment it does not start with the next date I am allowed to give. The app knows when I last gave so it should only show dates when I am eligible to give again Full Review

    Josh McKinney Published date: January 15, 2018

    The app looks and works great for the most part. A note to the developers: the database needs to be updated such that when the ARC changes the time of a blood drive, to exclude times that donors have scheduled for, it notifies the donor of the change in time or does not allow ARC to change the times. Assuming the database is SQL, this should be a simple onUpdate change for blood drive times. Full Review

    It won't work any.ore. I can't schedule appointments, it keeps coming up no drives I my area. But I can schedule them through Red Cross website. So frustrating! Full Review

    Shane Heath Published date: January 28, 2018

    App is nice, But every time I log in I now check my address. For some reason it keeps changing my address to my son's address. Not a biggee, but he has never donated blood so I'm not sure how or why it's doing it. Also rapid pass will not load after I go thru and do the questions, the link is there but it just keeps trying to load the info when I get to the donation sure so I still have to do the questions there. None of the issues are bad issues Just a little annoying Full Review

    Would be 5 star but last update totally broke the app. No longer shows my upcoming appointment which is sort of important. Don't understand why it takes so long to fix. Full Review

    Michael Mazur Published date: February 7, 2018

    Scheduling an appointment should not be this hard. I tried to schedule but it put me down for five minutes from now! Well, obviously I can't do that so I tried to reschedule and it said that's no good because my appointment in five minutes is preventing me from scheduling another appointment. I also can't cancel the appointment. So now I simply can't schedule an appointment at all. To me, I just wanted to do one simple thing and it somehow failed with flying colors. Full Review

    The blood journey only shows when you donate whole blood. Can the app show for platelets also, awesome knowing our donations help someone. It would nice to see that right in the app as well. Full Review

    I have found the app hasn't worked on Google Play Store for about 2 weeks. Hard to use the app if it just shuts down Full Review

    Julie Harris Published date: February 9, 2018

    This app never has accurate information with regard to my donation history. I do like being able to schedule donation appointments on it though and completing the fastpass before the appointment saves a little bit of time Full Review

    Ron Lawrence Published date: February 7, 2018

    Ive tried several times to link my donor information, but it never happens. The app is pretty much only good for scheduling which you can do online already. Full Review

    Published date: December 20, 2017

    Doesn't always sync if I've made an appointment. For example, my profile window says I haven't made any appointments. I did make one though. I called Red Cross and they confirmed that I did indeed have one. This app seems to have a few bugs. Another complaint is I can't change my profile pic. Frustrating! These issues should be fixable I would think. Full Review

    A waste of time, none of the pre donor links worked. They just give a blank tab. Full Review

    Kenneth G. Pearce Published date: January 1, 2018

    Is this app real? After 6 months of use I have yet to find a drive within 40 miles. Maybe Red cross is trying to discourage donations. Why can't I just see a list of drives within a radius for the year. Full Review

    1. Needs a Contact Us section. In trying to correct errors, there is a place to fill out your info--but not a box to describe what the error is! 2. The "Blood Journey" isn't specific for my blood's particular journey. It's just a general description of the process; and 3. the Donation Scheduler (and searching for a donation site) is so difficult to use. The graphics, however, are very, very nice. I like how the donor card is in the app. Since I already know the donation dates for my Church for the year, can't I just go ahead and make all those appts.? It's much more convenient instead of within 2 weeks. Full Review

    Third time I've made an appointment with the app. Third time they have not had my paperwork ready. It's really frustrating seeing aside 2 1/2 hours to be told to wait 20 minutes will they get your paperwork. Full Review

    This app was great prior to this last version. I can no longer see my appointments that I have already scheduled. The previous version allowed me to see my appointments. Please fix this. Thank you! Full Review

    Why are my appointments I scheduled through the website or showing in the app? One would think they would conside with each other. Frustratuing. Full Review

    Pavel Roskin Published date: December 19, 2017

    The app is getting better, much appreciated. But the rewards are getting worse. The new rewards were made by someone who cannot figure out antialiasing - how pathetic! The scheduler teaches me arrogantly about the difference between software and hardware arrows instead of just getting me to the previous page. Or maybe it could ask me what I want? How hard is it to make a separate button for eligibility instead of hiding it under donation history? Eligibility is not history! Surprise, surprise! There is _another_ donation history with vital signs under "Donor Card". Donations are measured is units, lives and gallons - three ways! I don't see the value of donation types in those units. A platelet donation "saves" 3 or 6 "lives" inconsistently. The whole notion of using "lives" as a score to measure the impact is disrespectful to the human life. To make the matter worse, the lives saved by teams are rounded to thousands. The 207 "lives" "saved" by me are just a rounding error for my team. Yet a loss of 207 actual lives would have been in the headlines for days if not weeks. Full Review

    Anytime I click a link, like donor rewards, it redirects me to a broken page. It dies not show my appointment, and it says there are no donor centers near me. Hm. It just doesn't work. Full Review

    Always crashing and constantly tells that no blood drive can be found. The customer service # to schedule a blood donation appt is constantly down too. Full Review

    Rick Ziegler Published date: February 4, 2018

    Why notify me and ask to schedule an appointment before I am eligible. You only find out your not eligible until you complete the appointment. Also the local volunteers information is not insynk with websites infor. Need better organization. Full Review

  • Blood Donor
    bob doherty Published date: February 1, 2018

    No option of managing (rescheduling) appointments in the app, probably a bug where it just keeps trying to schedule another appointment based on the one I wanted to reschedule...then won't let me because, yes, I have an appointment. Full Review

    Very nice to have an electronic donor card and complete rapid pass from my mobile device. Would be nice to have rapid pass QR code saved within the APP itself. Full Review
