Only works for iPhone. Only portrait in iPad. I never use the iPad in portrait.
Lamest app ever...no record of donations whatsoever! I've been donating blood at the Red Cross for years and the app can't even reflect my blood type much less my donation history. Don't waste your time with a download.
Would be nice if this would acknowledge that I gave blood 3/5
By Austin & Hailey's mom
Gave blood for my first time weeks ago and after updating my info with my donor card info the app is still telling me that I haven't donated. Doesn't show my card number or anything. I have tried several times to update the info and it says it takes 24-36 hours to "merge" the info but still nothing.
Crashes to white screen 1/5
This app used to be awesome but now it crashes to white screen upon opening. I am on the latest iOS version on iPhone 7+. It is impossible to go past the white screen and therefore it is impossible to use this app.
Delete the app then reinstall 4/5
By Concave scream
If you're getting the "maintenance" error message for half a second then a white screen, delete the app from your phone and reinstall it. I just did this and it works like a charm now. I'm also going to jump on the "rapid pass needs to be compatible with the app" bandwagon.
Great app as a newby to donating! 4/5
Love all of the interaction/updates to the donations I have provided. The capability to complete your screenings prior to the appointments via the app would be beneficial. I always love badges...The more the merrier!!
Weak and old design but accurate information 3/5
By OC Dad
The style and format is about a decade old and it does no take advantage of finger print sign in.
App is very fragile 1/5
Same issue as many others. The app only works about 10% of the time. The rest of the time it says it is having a problem and then goes to a white screen. When it actually works I love it.
App fails to load most of the time. Gives the error message screen on iOS 1/5
App rarely opens on iPhone anymore
Update: I had to delete it from my phone and reload it. It seems to be working now.
User friendly 5/5
Great way to see where blood donation sites are available. Has all of your pertinent blood donation Information available at your fingertips. Quick way to remember your blood type .
White screen 1/5
Apple IPhone 5C. I open the app, it says there is a problem and then the screen goes white. No access whatsoever.
Current version doesn't work at all. I've gotten the "sorry, but we're doing scheduled maintenance" message for about two months now. The app is great when it's working.
Does not work 1/5
Will not open. I just get a white screen. Was really excited about this apps potential for tracking my donations but seems I am back to good old fashioned planner.
Refuses to include my history 1/5
The app will not include my ID number even though I have submitted the information four times at weekly intervals. I wrote the Red Cross a week ago and have yet to get a response.
Good app 5/5
By Logos Grandma
I like this app. It's much more convenient than remembering a donor card. I'd like to see Rapid Pass added so everything is all together when you go to donate blood.
Does not work for me, cannot enter ID, tries to go to a web site and never gets there. Does not give me confidence.
Next thing that it needs is the addition of Rapid Pass.
Would be even better if it said what day of the week the blood drive was along side the date. Great beyond that. I use this app to make every appointment and it's cool to see the journey. I recommend it to anybody that donates regularly!
Just because you schedule an appointment 1/5
Doesn't mean they'll honor it. If you schedule later in the afternoon, you run the risk of them "running out of supplies". Likely more of a staff issue, but the app needs to have better communication.
So far so good except.... 4/5
The informational drop downs on the screens outlining impact on iron in the body don't work. The drop downs on the 'iron rich foods' page don't work either. Other than the problem viewing that information, which is relevant to me, I like the app!
Love Red Cross 4/5
I love that it shows the last 15 years of donations! I would love to do rapid pass on the app so I don't need to print it on a computer at home.
Need Rapid pass in App 4/5
Please add rapid pass in app, and also some new badges would be fun to help with even more motivation. Some ideas- different seasonal badges, holiday weekend badge, birthday month badge, maybe there could be a part of the app where we write notes about each donation (for our own use) for example- "ate 30minutes before donation and I felt great after", "felt better after drinking juice" etc. and reminders about each donation to improve future donations.
This app is motivational for me because I can keep track of my donations and remember to be proud of what I have done to help!
Excellent app! 5/5
This is an excellent app very accessible and on top of that I can actually get appointment reminders as well as share appointments and get directions to the donation place.
Latest upgrade not working 1/5
I love this app when it is working correctly. So easy to track when it's time to give again, plus you can see your giving history. Unfortunately, I have been unable to get anything but a blip that says "We're having problems" and then the app goes white and nothing more happens. Hope it gets fixed soon.
Great app! Easy to use! 5/5
By Talking shlong
It's awesome to see the blood go on it's "journey". The process of donating is cool enough but to add a tech angle was such a great idea! 5 stars from this donor!
Crashes every time 1/5
Since I downloaded the new version it says we are having a problem. Please check again tomorrow and then the screen goes completely white and I have to close the entire app. I am on iOS 10.3.2. Also when are you going to include rapid pass.
White Display 1/5
Usually works great, but now it's just a white screen. The app isn't loading.
Love the app! 5/5
I love how easy it makes my donating process! I also love that it helps me schedule my next appointment and keeps track of all my donations!
Great App! 5/5
So easy to schedule and/or change an appointment.
The preregistration process needs to be added on this app. I didn't receive it in my email at all this time!
Love it, but... 5/5
Love the app, but when are you going to get Rapid Pass compatible with mobile devices?? This would greatly improve my experience with giving platelets often.
Crashes every time. Please fix! 3/5
Great app when it works, but says "we're having problems" then goes totally white and you have to relaunch. Please fix!
Love the app 5/5
By mom's fun time
I schedule, keep track of last day donated, vitals at the time of donations. All great info. Would love to see cholesterol added to that data.
Problem: iPhone7 app quit working but I keep trying. Please fix
FIXED - Delete the App & reinstall it, log back in. Worked for me and no further problems
App continuously states "we're having a problem" 1/5
By Stevie G N
App worked great to schedule , but now get the above then white screens?
Love the app. Easy to use and make appointments.
Great information! 5/5
By Molly Rockit
So much useful and interesting information in one place.
Great App! 5/5
Very easy to use and very helpful links.
So easy to schedule appointments! 5/5
Love the app and use it to schedule my platelet donations.
One request please: Can you please take a look at the Blood Journey section?
Blood Journey is supposed to show where my platelets end up.m, i.e. To which hospital they're sent. Great feature - if it worked. It says it will only show where my blood products go if I scheduled my appt via the app - which I always do. However, Blood Journey section just never seems to register the fact that I scheduled my appointment via the app. That means I can never see that info on the app itself. It's the only part that doesn't seem to work.
I do get an Email from the Red Cross giving me that information but it would be nice to have it in the app itself so I don't have to dig through emails later to find it.
Otherwise, I love the rest of the app as it's full of great info!
Give Blood! 5/5
App is great!
Hasn't been working 2/5
Used to be a big fan of the app. For about a week it hasn't worked on my iPhone 7.
By Chucks ticket
Thankful for the Red Cross! 5/5
By Tammy/ Alabama
I've been donating regular since 2014, when my elderly mom took a bad fall & needed 3 units of blood. I've always had a pleasant experience. Plus it's a rewarding feeling to know that you can help save the life of up to 3 people with 1 pint/donation.
Thank you Red Cross for all you do.
Super easy 4/5
I use this all the time to schedule my donations. I donate regularly so this keeps me on track for when I can donate. I just wish the rapid pass could be filled out from the app instead of having to log into my computer. You get to work & you'll get 5 stars from me.
What happened❓ 3/5
By Grams BB
I used to be able to follow my blood journey - not now.
It doesn't have my latest donation shown
And selfie part of app does not work
Great Idea! 5/5
The app makes it much more fun and interesting to donate blood
Great app 5/5
This has been a great addition to the American Red Cross. Makes live so much easier.
Only complaint is I wish you could do the rapid pass on the app and not a desktop.
App Great - When It Works 3/5
By Dave D from WV
I enjoy the app, keeping track of donations and settling appointments - even check my BP history. But it is so annoying and difficult to get running. I seem to have to close all my other apps and open it at least twice to get it running. Really annoying; an fix for this?
I'm still new to Red Cross blood donation but this app makes it very easy to get appointments, find out my next available date to donate, and to find all the locations around to donate at!! Love this app, please stay awesome!!!!
Scheduling is cumbersome 2/5
I love that I can schedule donations on this app, however it's very difficult. It would be better if I could choose a donation center and then see the open dates and times for just that center. You have to navigate through ever other nearby center and blood drive.
