App Crashes When Managing Appointments 3/5
I’ve had this app for a couple of years now, and for the most part it is great. However, every time I tap the Manage Appointment link, it crashes. It has done this through every update the developers have pushed out, and I haven’t been able to find a way to contact them about it. I end up having to log into the website if I need to make any changes to my scheduled appointment. Hey developers, is there way you could fix that with the next update?
Love it 5/5
By Jeffersonville Johnny
I’ve donated my entire life this app makes it so easy. Five stars for sure!!!

On the right track but still needs work 3/5
I like the idea of this app but it needs things like syncing your RapidPass between the website and the app. Also the “Capture the Moment” section did not post my photo to Facebook but put a ad for the app there :-(
Every time I attempt to open the app, it just crashes! So I’m not even able to view my profile or anything 😫
Not functional 1/5
The app was great while it was working. Now it crashes each time as soon as it opens
Nice app 4/5
I wish it would add platelet donations
Update: tried to open for rapid pass, app crashes, deleted app, turn off phone still same, never had this problem before.
You must be 17+ 5/5
This app is so helpful to plan appointments and to track my progress. Also it has achievements/badges to make you feel even better about giving.
Completely Unusable App 1/5
Every time opening the app it crashes when the white blood droplet enlarges toward the screen. Both on IPad and IPhone. I’ve tried deleting the app and reinstalling as well as rebooting my devices.
Initially when creating an account I went through the website where it said I already had an account and to use forget password. When trying to reset the password it said I didn’t have an account. Has to email Red Cross to get the account fixed.
Cannot log in 1/5
By Lincoln App Needs Work
After successfully logging in and scheduling an appointment, I can no longer log in. I either get a connection lost error message looping or it doesn’t recognize my user credentials.
Very good 5/5
Would like to see a countdown to my next eligibility to donate. Maybe "you can donate" after this date.
Would like to see additional badges for milestones/ gallon higher than 10 or unlock for those like myself that have earned more.
Can’t open 1/5
By the who rarely writes reviews
Downloaded, created login, and now won’t open.
App isn’t loading information 1/5
By Mrs. Viator
I have gone through the donor Id section and filled out the form that states it’ll be linked within 72 hours—twice. And my profile hasn’t been updated. It’s been about two weeks since my donation.
Blood journey information is fabricated 1/5
No support for app. Clicking app support brings you to Red Cross main page. Calling them results in being told they have nothing to do with app. Every app upgrade causes another “phantom” instance of a login.
Where’s the “Found Information about Power Red” Badge? 3/5
By Alli kitten
What’s great: The profile contains a lot of interesting information. The badges are a great, fun way to get people motivated to give! The app opens and functions really well. You can quickly and easily move from page to page.
What’s not so great: Accessing information about all the different types of blood donation, requirements, and general blood donation tips and concerns ARE NOT EASY TO FIND. I was curious what a “Power Red” donation was. My friend looked it up on google, read the answer, and I still had not found it in the app. Finally after tunneling through several pages I found a list outlining the different types of donations. This shouldn’t happen. You should be able to access this information from several points. Maybe where it gives you the date when you can next donate (tap the box that has the name of donation method— you’re taken to an information on method. Perhaps being able to access this information from the badges section of the app would be another way to find it.
Missing details 3/5
I miss the additional details during my ‘bloods journey’, when I click that menu option I see symbols for each donation, but don’t understand what they mean. If I click my recent donation I get a blank screen...
Love, but I wish blood journey worked 4/5
I donated for the first time recently, and I made my first appointment through the app. It’s great to have my donor card available and details about my donation! But the thing is, I was excited to see where my blood went through the app, and the blood journey doesn’t work at all. Please fix the blood journey, a lot of people would appreciate it’
American Red Cross App 3/5
By wpc bham
The App is OK. Would like the blood journey portion of the app to be fixed.
Can not view blood journey 3/5
By Likes it!!
When you choose a donation to view the blood journey it’s just a blank screen. Please fix! Thanks!
Blood donor 2/5
It's not easy at all to book an appt.... It should give you a calendar that you can tap a specific date. It keeps telling date has to be for a later date but it won't give me an option to change the date.
Beware if you are European.... 1/5
That lived during the 80’s-90’s in many of Europeans countries! I’m German living in the states for 6 years and decided to do what I did before in Germany, donating. So I got my kids some babysitter and went off today to my scheduled appointment but got rejected because of having lived in Germany during the time of “mad cow disease”! Thank you very much. The blood shortage doesn’t seem to be too big! I really wanted to help especially since I’m the more rare negative blood type. For everyone else the app works awesome I guess.
Decent app for blood donors, but... 4/5
Would have liked access to complete history of ALL blood donations here; there must be records in the ARC data base since they always know how to find me to make sure I continue to donate, so I think they keep that stuff for a long time.
Great app, sometimes buggy 4/5
I donate whole blood as often as I’m able, so this app makes it easy to schedule, reschedule, and share events with others! The selfie feature is still a bit wonky, and the donation journey section is currently blank. But the ease of use, badges, and RapidPass make it well worth it!
Blood journey has stopped working . 4/5
Great app but just recently the details for blood journey has stopped showing up.
Easy to use 5/5
By follow mee tmills
Great app! Provides so many useful features and information on donating blood. Also super simple to make an appointment through the app and an easy way to access your doner card!
What happened to my appointments 2/5
I really liked the app, but now I can’t even find my upcoming appointments. Are the in a different place?
Easy to use app with great info 5/5
App makes scheduling and rapid pass easy to use. The history of donations and dates on when donations can begin again is a nice feature. The blood journey feature is a great personalized feature of the donation.
I liked following along with the blood journey after donating to see what process my blood was in and eventually where it was sent. Unfortunately this doesn’t work anymore, so there’s no excitement in seeing the progress. Bummer
Newest update 2/5
I used to enjoy being able to see where my blood went once it hit stage 5 and now it just says stage 5. Bring that back or you won’t be getting my o positive blood anymore.
Big issue 3/5
The blood journey is still not working.
Location errors, can’t schedule, wrong name on ID card 1/5
By Drummer squirrel
I am unable to schedule through the app, get a location error every time, and can’t get my name corrected on the ID card. It’s discouraging! I’ve written many times. Just don’t rely on the app. It’s a great idea, but it just doesn’t work.
Still broken 3/5
I love the app for scheduling blood donation but the page for blood journey is still broken.
Great app 4/5
Good to be able to schedule. Neat to be able to see history. I would add 2 things. A counter of my times given, so I could track where I am for the annual banquet and a push of my rapid pass bar code to messaging.
Bug fix 4/5
I really enjoy this app, but can no longer access my blood journey. When I tap on my donation history in this section, it is now blank. Please address this issue with your next bug fix. Thank you.
Blood journey 3/5
The blood journey still freezes up. New update yesterday & still not right
Bug v1.6.1 3/5
“Your Blood Journey” does not list anything when I click it. It used to, but now shows nothing when I try to view a particular date that I donated blood. Regression bug....
No blood journey info 1/5
They need 2 fix this otherwise i’m gona hv 2nd thoughts about donating again. I t would B nice 2 know which hospital my free blood got benefited. ARC, U gona hv 2 get a new app creator please
Rapid Pass Gets Lost 4/5
This app keeps getting better. The Rapid Pass is the best time saver and it’s great that it is on the app now. However be sure to email or print it when you’re done. The app will not save it for you if you leave the page and you will have to do it all over again.
Great app for those that like to help! 5/5
By Clint dd
I really like the app, and to help others as well. This app makes it easy to both.
Plasma donation 4/5
The app is great but I wish I could schedule an appointment for plasma donation through the app instead of needing to call.
Good, but ... 3/5
The blood journey part of the app is not working. I always found that part cool- to know which hospital my blood went to. Hope this gets fixed.
Otherwise great app, very useful for booking appointments. Glad the rapid pass link is now in the app as well.
All in One App 4/5
Love that it has everything you need in one spot and easy to use.
Not user friendly 1/5
Tried using password it would not accept so tried to get a temp password. It opened to the web site but unable to crest a new password. Just gave the usual info on blood donations. So have no new password!!!!!!
Could be better 2/5
I like that I can access my donor card and make appointments online. I don't like the useless badges and impact tabs. I don't like that you can't complete your RapidPass through the app with QR code, ready for when you go in to donate. The worst part is that the blood journey is bugged, and I can't see more details of what stage my donation is in.
Love this app 5/5
I love donating my blood. Specially because it has gone to John Hopkins and my girlfriend is getting surgery there in a month. Friendly app easy to use
Blood app 4/5
I like this app because I can schedule appoints and complete the rapid pass in the app. I can keep track of my donations. However, the blood journey section of the app has not been working completely lately. It used to tell you what each step meant and where the blood was sent when it reached step 5.
...what the heck 1/5
By What the heck r u seirios!!!???!!!
The latest update killed it for me. Nothing loads
Fix the date selection in this app!!! 1/5
First I give blood all the time however, when I want to schedule a donation on a date I select the app does not allow it. This renders the app absolutely useless. I don’t want you to tell me when to give, I want to tell you when I am available to give.
Great App 5/5
It makes it so much easier to do your rapid pass on the app now. All the info is now there for you. Thank You
Blood donation 5/5
18 years ago just a few weeks after I had my last daughter, I began to hemorrhage really badly. When the ambulance arrived , and the EMT’s were assessing my situation, I remember hearing one of them say that I needed a blood transfusion right away. They said that I was in dire need of a blood transfusion to save my life. I praise God and will forever be thankful and grateful that someone chose to donate blood so that it was there when I was the one in need. Donating our Blood, Platelets and Plasma is a very important and honorable thing that each of us can do for others , as well as ourselves. We have no way of knowing that we may very well end up being the one that needs a blood transfusion at some point in our lives. So if we are physically and medically able, I truly believe that it is our duty to donate blood products that can and does help save peoples lives.
