Red Cross BLOODAPP is fabulous 5/5
By Gail in Western Washington
The American Red Cross BLOODAPP is easy to use and FABULOUS for busy professionals. Just TEXT 909-99, download app, Sign-up and Login for simple selection of blood drive location and scheduling convenient time for donation.
Simple and fun 5/5
I think the app is very simply designed yet very informative it is fun to use in track your donations take selfie's make appointments for cancel appointment to give blood very useful app highly recommended
Lacks RapidPass 3/5
Convenient for booking and managing appointments. The lack of RapidPass limits the apps usefulness.
When I first installed this app I was impressed with the Blood Journey report feature. The last 3 times I've donated platelets the Blood Journey feature has been very delayed or not working at all. Wonder if it's an app problem or ARC not inputting the data. Also, not finding a Contact Us feature in app.
Great App! 5/5
Thank you for making the scheduling process so easy with the "Smart Scheduling" feature. I sometimes forget how many days it has been since my last donation or when I am eligible to give again, this app makes it so easy to find out the answer. Thank you!!
Way too many bugs 1/5
The idea is great and I would love to use it. However the entire implementation of the teams feature is just one huge bug. The scrolling of the teams table is broken, can't scroll to the last few times half the time. If I attempt to join a team it either does nothing or puts me into a random team that I did not select. Creating a team is also impossible. Fix the teams feature or just remove it!!!!!!!! Deleting the app. Will deal with the annoying phone calls to schedule visits.
❤️ Red Cross 5/5
Can you possibly make an option on your app for rapid pass??? Other than that you all ROCK!!!!!
Crashing after logging in 3/5
By Bossly :)
Love the app from when i could use it but now the app keeps crashing whenever i try to log in. Ive tried deleting it and downloading it again and it didn't help
Great idea! Wish it would sync to health app 5/5
This is a very convenient app to have and I think will help those that donate continue to do so. I haven't used the teams or rewards so not sure how well all of that works but much easier than calling to schedule. Do wish it would sync with health app though.
Awesome but team issue needs to be addressed 4/5
By Demon Poet
This app is pretty convenient for frequent donors but there is an issue with teams. I try to join one and the app either rejects me or puts me in random teams.
Good app 4/5
Reasonably good for scheduling appointments. Team concept excellent however newest update tried to put me on a different team and now doesn't show me on a team.
It still has bugs that could be worked out. It is helpful in keeping up with when you can donate again. They need to let you do the rapid pass on it as well, we have our phones but not always access to a desktop.
It couldn't be any awesome-r! 5/5
By A Proud Wolverine
Hard work, thought, and dedication put for this creative app! It makes the donation process extremely easy and convenient for frequent donors. I only hope it would include the RapidPass feature very soon! Thank you abundantly for your service hard work!
Red Cross 5/5
Easier to use and for good cause
Good app 4/5
Before the latest update I was on a team. Now it puts me on random teams but will not let me join any team much less the one I was in and want to be on.
A must-have for frequent donors! 5/5
I love this app. It makes donating so much easier. The best feature is being able to schedule within the app. I also love that I don't have to carry around a donor card. The social media features are fun too. I like being able to see how many units I have donated, and where they are going. I donate platelets every week and this app makes that a lot easier. For future versions it would be cool to be able to do the rapid passes within the app as well.
Useful, but still has lots of bugs 3/5
This is great for scheduling and keeping track of appointments as well as having a digital donor card. However, you can't put the card in Apple Wallet or use it for rapid pass. Also, I regularly encounter bugs preventing use of the rewards, blood journey and teams features. Still seems like a work in progress.
Team creation 4/5
Does not let me create a team but I like the app very useful.
Love the app , easy to use.
Seems useful but... 3/5
The app generally seems helpful especially the appointment searching and scheduling, but when all said and done it wouldn't actually let me confirm and schedule the chosen appointment. Tells me error 'bad request'. So not very helpful.
Also there is no option to save or input my username/password, either directly saving or allowing 1password to input the same. Manually looking up and typing these if you happen to log out is always a chore
Why doesn't it do RapidPass? 3/5
Replaces card and finds appointments. Doing RapidPass would complete the loop.
Helpful and speedy 5/5
It's a breeze to check areas for donating and scheduling.
I have more to learn about this but really like it so far.
By T. Ali Jordan
I love this app almost as much as I love donating blood to help save lives.
Wish it had Apple Health integration 4/5
Handy to manage your appointments. Only thing missing in my mind is integration with Apple Health. The app displays the blood pressure and iron content measured at your last few appointments. Wish it would sync that data with Apple Health.
Halfway useful 2/5
The scheduling is a little better, but the day/time does not show in the manage Appointment section.
Tracks information well 4/5
Great at letting me know when/where I can donate. Setting up a apartment is simple.
Appointment info is incorrect 1/5
It won't let me book an appt in February. The soonest it lets me make an appointment is April!!
Mostly good, a few issues 4/5
I love most of the features: my mobile donor card, tracking my donations and how many I've made. Rapid Pass compatibility would be great (even being able to do it from the web on my phone would be nice, actually). I do tend to have problems with scheduling appointments through the app though-trying to search by date instead of "today" or "14 days" doesn't ever work because it shows up as an option but won't let me select it. And since I live further from most of the places I tend to donate at, I have to have that flexibility. So I tend to schedule on the website and then use the app from there.
Could use some tweaking 2/5
By Who gives a flying who ha
It has its good and bad points. After countless calls to their app support letting them know that the "blood journey" dosent work and has never worked for me.. nothing has ever been done.
Most is good, except 1/5
I would really enjoy being able to take the pre-donation questionnaire on my mobile device. Not only would it save time, but I would be more likely to donate in the future if it didn't take an extra 30 minutes to take the survey at the donation center.
Donor and app user 5/5
Educational, easy to navigate and overall really impressive. I wish that you could upload your "blood selfie" and save them to the app each time you donate. Would be nice to look back and see. I really really enjoy the blood journey and my overall blood statistics. Keeps me excited about donating
Good app 5/5
I wish this app had accessible the questions that have to be filled out prior to giving.
Performance has declined; cannot set appointment 2/5
By Doc Gee
When I left my donation yesterday I wanted to set up a new appointment, but the app got in the way. Donation info apparently only gets posted overnight, because the app did not know until this morning and meanwhile kept trying to reschedule yesterday's appointment. Then today, with my donation posted, the appointment system hung up and refused to confirm my appointment at the last step.
Yesterday's appointment was scheduled through the app. Hopefully this is just a temporary issue as the app gets updated for new iOS and my new iPhone 7.
Wonderful app. 5/5
Since I down loaded the app I have not missed an appointment. It is also rewarding to get updates as your blood travels through the system to its final destination.
Great app 5/5
Really cool app so far, very convenient
Good but frustrating 3/5
I have been using this app for about a year and it is very convenient for making appointments and remembering. So during the course of me using it I in locked a lot of badges almost all of them. Then one day after an update I lost on my badges. It's frustrating when I work to unlock all of those. So the app is good but it doesn't let you enjoy or follow it. Please fix this.
This is cool 5/5
I like this app. I would like to have a deferment option in the app too. If I can schedule an appointment in the app I should also be able to say I have a cold or just got a vaccine in the app also.
New Card 2/5
Why haven't I received a new donor card. I changed my name & address. It's been way too long.
Fun & efficient 5/5
I like keeping track of my personal data AND I want to stay on top of my commitment to donating blood regularly. This app helps with both! + it's easy to use.
Scheduling issues 3/5
I haven't used the app in about a month and it was working fine before but I updated to iOS 10.2 yesterday and on opening the app it now crashes several times while trying to schedule a donation. After four crashes I was able to get to the scheduling section but couldn't pull up the January 19th date or enter the code to pull up the event at my company. The poster did have a QRCODE I was able to scan, the website loaded, the event code found the event and donation was scheduled in under 20 seconds. The app should be just as fast and easy.
App hasn't worked for a week 1/5
I've been trying to access my info in the app for about a week now, but it crashes everytime I open it.
Would be outstanding with some additional features 4/5
By Stargazer 76
This app would be great if it had some additional features.
1. Needs rapid pass integration or at least a reminder, or email link
2. Ability to incorporate ARC data about my blood/donation into Apple health app
I'm 16 and I donated blood recently because it is allowed where I live but the app won't let me create an account.
App does not open 2/5
By Bran 2012
Ever since the American Red Cross app was updated a couple weeks ago it crashes every time I try to open the app. What could I do to solve the problem.
Practical and functional 5/5
I found I couldn't schedule an appointment - but I understood that this ability is a location by location ability.
Rapid Pass 3/5
Need Rapid Pass link in app.
Good app- needs improvements 3/5
I'm here because I attempted to navigate to the pre questionnaire before my appointment this evening. How I ended up here says more about the need to rethink the links on the home page. Will I ever get the chance to utilize the app to its fullest with easy and efficiency? I hope so.
Aha app 4/5
Good app! I like the layout and it functions well with tons of info. Only problem I have is I can never schedule an appointment through the app. Very busy person so have to schedule time or I don't have time to do it. Please work on this.
Won't let me sign up 1/5
I donated at my school's blood drive but it won't let me create an account because I'm 16. I live in Illinois where you can donate at 16 with parental consent, which the red cross has on file. I would just like to create an account.
Good app, but keep working on it 4/5
This app is well designed, and looks gorgeous. I love seeing my records of past donations and ability to schedule future donations. Two suggestions to improve:
1 fix the log in issue. It keeps asking me to log in, and often fails to accept the correct PW
2 I want to schedule a power red donation, but scheduler defaults to whole blood.
Thanks and look forward to updates.
