I downloaded the AARP Now app yesterday. At first glance I thought the app seems very abbreviated. 4 categories at the top of the Home page. 1) NOW, news is somewhat relevant, although I don't really care about the resurgence of pinball machines, 2) CALENDAR, empty, and since I live in a small town I don't expect to use it very much if at all, 3) DEALS, nice to have, but being on a fixed income, I don't do a whole lot of shopping, traveling, etc. But again, I like that it's part of the app, 4) AARP, My Events, empty just like Calendar. My Deals, empty. Settings, 3 settings in total; My Profile, Notifications and Darken Colors. Oh and of course, Contact Us. What I hoped to get was a dynamic, interactive, fun, beautiful experience. What I got was basic and void of ample content , and not at all what I'd expect from an organization like AARP.
Trying to log in to my account is terrible. It keeps saying to correct my email and password. Done that many times and no success. Even using my account number is a pain. To put in the year of my birth takes forever because you have to keep flipping back month by month thru the years instead of scrolling as that doesn't work either. App needs to be worked on by the developer to fix these problems so people can use it without all the aggravation.
A very nice app that does exactly what it says. While I don't like having a lot of apps on my phone, I do appreciate the value of this one!
At first blush I like it, especially the calendar I like to stay involved in community activities. I spend a great deal of time alone as I am a writer and so the stetotype. The calendar will help remind me to get out and socialize. What I don't like is no brain games, AARP talks the talk on this topic but charges fees to play on website. I am an online advertiser, marketing provider and AARP should wrap their collective brain around the power of offering free games. As it is now AARP appears as a money making machine. Free brain games are all over Google store therefore taking users away from your content. Perhaps just one good useful free game... Brain games are crucial to brain health. My work philosophy is see a need fill the need. Charging member to participate in this aspect of AARP is out dated and obsolete.
Been a member for years never had any problem until now having to relog in don't have my password won't send my password to advance my percentage bonus deal.
Tried 4 times to reset my password. Still haven't received the email link
