Definitely Went Backwards 1/5
Don't know what the thought was when this version was released - it's worthless. For those of us that used the app for how it was intended can no longer even consider the app. I used it 90% for putting together my weekly shopping list. I did that by entering a product to look for (i.e. Milk) and i received a complete list of all the brands carried, picture of each product, flavors and content (skim, 1%, 2%, etc) and the current price; now you get none of that. If you want milk you enter Milk 1% and that is what is added to your list. You don't know if you are getting Hy-vee brand or Land-o-Lakes, there is no current price for your purchase, no picture to make your selection from.
There are a number of brands so if you were to enter chocolate ice cream, there is Blue Bunny, Kemps and others but you have no idea of what you will be getting. And if the solution is to enter everything such as "Kemps Half Gallon Ice Cream", you have now lost 75% of your customers as this was to be an app of convenience and saving. It now has become extremely burdensome to search and complete such a list unless you just want to see what the store specials are. NO SAVINGS HERE WITH THIS APP.

Good app for specials and coupons 4/5
This is a good app for checking the weekly specials and coupons. It loads the coupons on to the card that I keep on my keychain. It could be a great app if I could review products.
Accessibility with voiceover 3/5
I would love to make better use of the app, however, after I have scanned a prescription number, I cannot use voice over. I have to turn it completely off for buttons to work. I have no idea what it is doing after I have scanned the barcode.
I have to confess that I am not a good online shopper. I have not taken a thorough look at the rest of the app.
I will look forward to an update on which this bug is fixed. Thank you.
Not so great 1/5
In a dreamworld you could build a list online and see it in the app. Nope. The app looks pretty but it doesn't function very well. You can't edit an item after entering it so if you don't put the details like Department in upfront you're out of luck. And for whatever reason the app doesn't seem to know that an onion would be produce. I want to like it but I'm going back to "out of milk."
Portrait only? You have to be kidding. 1/5
This app runs only in portrait, not landscape? My iPad is set-up for easy access to the keyboard, and the applications that I use automatically update on my iPhone. To improve the efficiency of this application it needs to rotate between portrait and landscape. Until then, I am removing it from my iPad.
Stripped Useful Features 1/5
This "update" made the app harder to use and my biggest issue with the app is the lack of product finder that the old app had which was useful to quickly figure out what aisle something was in. That feature was great considering there's no longer a "helpful smile in every aisle" it takes as much time to find someone to ask for directions as it does to find it myself....
App it self 4/5
I have to go into App Store every time I want to use the app. The icon doesn't stay with the rest of my icons
Works exactly how I want it to 5/5
I've been waiting for Hy-Vee to come out with something like this, it has all the features I wanted like loading the weekly coupons and Apple Wallet capability, and seems to work smoothly so far!
By Crash in IA
I would use your app more & shop Hy-Vee more if the app would allow for searching of items & prices at my local Hy-Vee! Other retailers have that in-app capability, why not Hy-Vee?
New HyVee App missing Product Locator 1/5
The new app isn't as user-friendly. One of the features I frequently used was the Product Locator for my local store. Can't find it in the new version )-:
Bad Update 1/5
My app worked fine until the update this past weekend. Now it tells me I added things to my list but they don't show on my list and it won't let me unmark the item! Please fix!!
App doesn't work 1/5
By Toto, we’re home
When you sign up and enter a password, it sends you an email link to complete registration which is nothing but a link to reset your password. Then when you fill out your registration form, it says please fill out required field, which has already been filled out. It just plain doesn’t work.
App is broken 1/5
This used to be a great app. With the last couple of updates, it no longer works. All I get is a message saying I have no internet connection.
Works great again 4/5
Latest update fixed the connection issue. My favorite feature shows what isle each item can be found! Works best with items "on sale". When add non sale items, would be nice to get a list of items to choose. Then would rate 5*. Can easily track fuel rewards credits & when they expire. Can make list/edit shopping list on either desktop or wireless device, then updates lists accurately. I miss the store layout that used to be available for each store.
It's not letting me do the update!!!!!
Stopped working... 1/5
App check, aisle 9...
On launch, cursor spins and no data shows. It's as if home base isn't talking.
Will not load! 1/5
I can never get the app to work!
I get nothing. Always trying to load but nothing comes up anymore
Very good useful app 4/5
I use this weekly. I like that it breaks down my list into the aisles I have to go to. Adding list items are easy.
Stopped working 1/5
By Bird Wonderer
Ever since the last update the only thing that works is the prescription section. Everything else is blank. Very disappointed.
Miss my store map 3/5
By Lou M.
I really miss the previous app's feature that allowed you to search an item and it would tell you where in the store it was.
Pharmacy needs work: Update 5/5
With the old app, I could refill a prescription from my account. Now, if I don't have the prescription number with me, I'm out of luck. Definitely not "new and improved." I'll stick with the old version, thank you! Update: the update resolved this issue, making it much easier to refill a prescription. Thanks for listening to our concerns!
Poor execution especially for prescription 1/5
This app lacks functionality that Target had years ago. Requiring you to enter a prescription number when ordering a refill is a hassle and the barcode scanner is useless
Very bad 1/5
Not user friendly nor can you order groceries with it.
I would give zero stars in a heartbeat if I could 1/5
By BigDeke 2013
This was advertised through the previous version (7.2 by tactile) as an upgrade. However it is really a new application. It didn't inherit anything from the other application and the other Hy-Vee application still exists on my phone.
I really think Hy-Vee has missed out on a lot of opportunities with the fuels saver card over the last few years. Instead of recognizing the opportunity to gather data and perform analytics on their customers spending habits they have done little to make it anything more than what it was originally. Unless I'm getting points on my card I don't bother handing over the number and they miss out on valuable information about me and my wife.
What they need to do is take a page from target's red card/cartwheel program. Perform some analytics on how, what, when, where I spend. E.g. If I'm a regular buyer pasta, how do My spending patterns change at the introduction of a complimentary product like a new brand of pasta sauce. They could target advertising to me. They could figure out the frequency of my visits and how many items I buy at a time, do I shop big on Saturday only to show up a few hours later to grab the missing ingredients I need for Sunday dinner?
Basically, give me some incentive for using the card other than the occasional penny or two on the card for gas.

Barcode Function Lacking 2/5
The barcode does not work at the gas pump.
Barcode at the pump 2/5
Bring back the ability to use a barcode at the gas pump. Having to type in the number is pretty 1999
App doesn't work 1/5
Tried to buy my groceries online and when I click on the link to shop online the page is blank every time! Major bummer!!!
Please fix the prescription section 1/5
I am no longer notified when my Rx have been automatically refilled.
Love the new app but... 1/5
Love the new app but you took away one of the greatest features. The ability to reorder prescriptions from your account! Now when I need to refill I have to go find the numbers on my prescriptions, even tho I have several refills on account. Please bring back that feature!!!
Can't download app 1/5
I can't access features on my current Hy-Vee app because there is a new app available, but can't download new app - the only option is to open it.
This app is ok. The list does not have 'sort by name' 3/5
By Sort by name
I have used this app for while. I use it weekly to have cashier scan code. I have also added coupons and purchased the item.
Couple things to mention:
1-The QR code can be scanned cashier, but I have noticed it works better when I increase the display brightness on my phone. Sometimes it does not scan well when it is low brightness.
2-The list does not offer a way to sort by name, alphabetically. I have 109 completed items and it is hard to find things to move them to the 'need to buy' items. Please add a sort by name or give field where I can type to find item by name.
Needs improvement 1/5
Always being logged out makes the widget useless.
Horrible App 1/5
The app says you can load coupons on to My Perks card. I have done that several times and it has NEVER worked! I also get a message a new update is availabile, but I have updates. I only gave one star because I can at least check Fuel Saver balance!
Love it! 5/5
So easy to use. I enjoy the updates.
By AJ Boondock
Wish I could give 0 stars. Nothing to review. Won't let me sign in so I can use it. Complete POS. Don't waste your time.
I read all reviews so.......uuuugggghhhh!!! 1/5
Leaving my review, because I just got notified that there is an update. Based on all the reviews concerning the update. I will pass. When will devs realize we read the reviews and then decide to download or not. Crazy sad in my opinion.
Update!!!! great the app is useless, it won't let me view coupons unless I update!!! Deleting dumb bunnies!!!! So aggravated uuuugggghhhh!!!!!
Improved? NOT! 1/5
UPDATE 1/5/17. THIS APP IS TOTALLY USLESS. PLEASE BRING BACK OLD APP.
I had to give this a 1-star because ZERO was not an option. Why do app and software developers "improve" things by making them harder to use and more complicated? HyVee did just that as well. What good is "new" when old works better. New app can't make a grocery list. New app won't show me the weekly add. New app DOES show current fuel saver balance but that is the only good thing of the new app.
Liked the old app where you could refill a prescription from a list of previously filled ones. It was much more convenient!
Missing product locator 3/5
By Introvert Customer
I loved the product locator in the old app - no need to find a store employee, or hunt for hours to find the one weird product on my list. I'm really sad that this new app doesn't have that feature! Bring it back, Hy-Vee!
Can't load new version, can't revert 1/5
This update is locked on my phone, continues to read "can't upload at this time". I can't use the app, and from the reviews since the upgrade, I don't want to. Hoping App Support is working on a fix!
Nice but 4/5
Would be nice to have the option to save your RX numbers in the app so you don't have to go digging for them every time you fill.
Bad update 1/5
Adding items to the list takes forever now and it only adds about 10% of them, even though it says they have all been added. In the future, maybe try out updates on your own phones before you send them out and ruin your previously good app.
Used to be great 1/5
I love Hy-vee but this is about their app. The update is horrible. I have to login every time I use it and find my store again. RX scanner isn't working either.
They Broke It! 1/5
Their prior Hy-Vee app was a decent shopping list tool. Now they keep your list on some central server -- and as far as I can tell, don't cache a copy on your local device, so when you open your app again, you wait minutes, not seconds, to see what you need in >this< aisle. It's painful and thus useless.
No product locator feature anymore? 1/5
By The Roe P
Guess I'll delete this new version, because it's useless to me now.
Not bad but bugged 3/5
Decent app other than I can register my card to the app... please fix
By Johnston shopper
The ads and lists are fine, but I use the apps to find things and make the shopping easier, and you removed that feature. The only feature that makes shopping easier for the customer, especially when you visit different stores often, and you get rid of it? I will now be getting rid of this app.
Worthless App 1/5
By Hy-Vee Hater
Worked at one point, but now just taking up space on my phone. Expect better out of a store group that prides themselves on being on the cutting edge. Hire someone with app experience.
