The app is full of useful information which is great for those us us (newbies) still learning about the whole process. But last Friday, 3/16/2018 I tried to do rapid pass and had issues. I went through the whole process completed the entire thing only to have it not acknowledge I had done it. So at my donation site I had to go through the whole process again, not a time saver. Rapid Pass needs to be integrated into the app, and upon completion have a place within the app to click on to show them at your appointment. If this happens I'll bump it up from 3 stars to 5.
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. Not giving appropriate credit where due. Talking about the badges.
Wow. When I read the reviews, they must be old. Many of the complaints, I had accomplished today. I filled in rapid pass from my Android, showed up and they were ready to go, they had it but if they didn't, my phone had a copy. I got a same day appointment, and all the vitals. Yes you can't share about what you did, but I don't care about bragging. And you can't follow your donation. But those aren't my goals. Also I don't care about badges either. I donate platelets to help cancer patients and others who need them. And this app helps me to that.
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)
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.
I love this app! It makes giving blood and the whole process a breeze! It is very simple to use especially after the last update and installing the rapid pass questionnaire. (Make sure you take a screen shot in case your donation location don't have very good WiFi!) The only problem is there is a glitch with donation counting. In the event that they have to use another bag, for instance if they can't hit a vein out have to switch arms, the app counts it as two donations. It may be a Red Cross issue or app but either way unfortunately my dumb veins make my counts inaccurate.
We have fixed an issue that some users may have been experiencing around logging in and canceling scheduled appointments.
