I'm glad I am able to help!
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.
Track your donation 4/5
I love 90% of this app, I really love giving platelets, that being said I would really like to be able to track my donation to the hospital. I’m always very curious where it ends up. I always schedule with in the app but it never shows up in the track your donation it just says to schedule with in the app to track. I’ve tried multiple times but it doesn’t work at all, please fix this, I think it would be even more motivating to see where my donation ends up. Thank you
This app makes it easy to keep track of your appointment. I really rapid pass. It allows you access to all the routine questions within the app. This really speeds up the process.
Awesome app! 5/5
It’s so easy to schedule an appointment with this app! Lots of useful information as well.
Needs Fixing 1/5
This app needs many updates; it’s not very user-friendly.
If they would actually show the blood journey it’d be nice. That feature hasn’t worked since June 2018. Also since last update they drop most of the information of previous donations.
Any time I try opening the app it crashes.
Great app 5/5

Very insightful & clear cut. Super easy to use!!!!
Could be better 3/5
Overall, the I formation and format is excellent. However, some links lead to removed data from their site.
Great App!! 5/5
By Hugh A. Gray
Donating blood is even easier with this app. Rapid Pass can be completed at home before donating making the process even easier and quicker. Love watching my blood journey to saving three lives.
App is a great idea. The RapidPass, even better, but... the app says you can start the RapidPass process as early as 24 hours prior to the appointment time. That’s true, but if you do it prior to midnight before the scheduled appointment, the donor center can’t use it. So you end up answering the questions all over, again. Either the app timeframe needs to change to match the donor centers, or the donor center needs to be able to access a rapid pass completed prior to midnight. I did mine at 11:51pm, because it was 9 minutes before midnight, I got to do it all over again.
So easy to give blood with this app! 4/5
.....so I urge you to give the gift of life.
Like the app. Would personally fund it helpful to have a feature that, using the last donation date, automatically calculates and gives the next possible date to give. Then I don't have to try to figure out whether drive dates I receive notice about fall within the 56-day window.
Badger 1 4/5
Is finally iPhone-friendly. I was able to use RapidPass on my phone instead of having to use a computer. The search for donation locations is the improved, but still has a ways to go. If the can make this social-media friendly, it could really help rally people to their cause. What better to do while resting after a donation than send tweets and post on social media about the opportunity to help others?
I find the app comprehensive and helpful. I’m
A first time donor and I’m glad to have this app.

Where’s the dates? 2/5
I’ve tried to schedule several times using this app, however; the dates of the drives never show up! I can go to the direct Red Cross web page and find all the info but in this app no date found. The drives I find on the web site don’t show up in the app even when I’ve expanded my date range and/or put in the zip code of the drive! I gave two stars because the pages load fast.
Not so good 2/5
I am frustrated with this app.
* it won’t go into landscape orientation to use the keyboard on the iPad.
*When in portrait mode the view is so large I couldn’t read whole sentences at a time (pinching didn’t shrink it and I came across no other way to change that)
* worst problem, though, I did the Rapid Pass using my iPad (not as easily as it could have been using my keyboard!). The directions said a copy would come to my email. It never did! My iPad showed the bar code but that never showed up on the app on my phone. This meant I had to take iPad to my donation instead of being able to just use my phone.
My older version of this app just quit working one day, so we will see how long this one works!
Doesn’t save password so you can’t even check info. Useless.
No help 2/5
I downloaded this app to help me save time and schedule appointments through the app but every time I punch in a zip code of a location that I KNOW will have a blood drive, it says it can’t find any matches. What is the point of this app?!
App loses login info when updated 1/5
Has happened 3 or 4 times now. Very frustrating.
So far so good 5/5
By Rosi Iphone
The app is easy to use. I use the app to schedule appointments. I also use the app to complete rapid pass. It has your donor card on the app. They scan it the day of donation. It shows how much blood has been donated. Your blood type. Information about your blood type. I have no problems with it at all. Simple and easy is what I like.
✨ Save a Life, Donate Blood ✨
Super intuitive! 5/5
I am glad they have an app for this. I find it very helpful and intuitive. I haven’t found any issues or glitches with it yet. Great for scheduling apts, canceling or rescheduling. It has everything you need in one app. Also customer service is quick and helpful if you’d ever need to call for assistance.
Great app 5/5
By brianna dean 97
Love this app. It shows me what I’ve done and motivates me to keep donating.
By The matched
So far this app has been great, easy to use! I look forward to watching my bloods journey!
App crashing 4/5
I love this app because I haven’t donated in about five years. This app is user friendly despite my old donor ID not matching. Now the app is constantly crashing! I made an appointment over the phone but the person had wrong information so I wanted to check the app to see if the appointment was scheduled. I can’t even get the app to fully open before it crashes. Please fix this!
Okay but missing an obvious feature 3/5
By Matt DeForrest
Overall, this app is good and does what it needs to do, in terms of letting you store an electronic donor card, schedule appointments, and complete RapidPass. That said, there is an obvious feature that is missing: HealthKit integration. The data that is recorded by the Red Cross under Donation History (Blood Pressure, Pulse, and Hemoglobin) should sync up to HealthKit.
Donation Data to HealthKit 5/5
By Reid Cagir
This is a beautifully designed app with simple controls, fluid responsiveness, and low-user memory load. The app makes scheduling appointments easy and fun, and is the only reason why I donate as often as I do. The only improvement I’d like to see is more access to our health statistics sent to Apple’s Health app. This would add accurate and enriching data to log my health over longer periods of time. I like to think of my blood donations as mini checkups to spot potential health issues down the road, so it’d be amazing to see that data actually logged into the Health app. This data (blood pressure, pulse, hemoglobin, etc) is already displayed minimally when flipping the digital donor card to the history side, but I’d like it to be recorded forever to give me more accurate health data and make my donations even more valuable to me as a donor. Thanks!
Rapid pass 1/5
After downloading Rapid Pass and answering all the questions I was unable to show website because of no WF connection. 🤬
Attendant was in a hurry to go on break and failed to tell me I should start squeezing 🤨
I may think twice before donating again. Personnel has gotten sloppy
Good, but what happened to stats history?!? 4/5
This app is super handy 👍🏼. I schedule, do Rapid Pass & watch my blood journey with it. HOWEVER, my favorite (& VERY helpful) feature was seeing iron & BP stats in donation history. Now it just shows those stats for the last few appointments. Donations before that only have type and place - no stats ☹️. Please bring back the stats in past donations!
This app 5/5

This is app is great!
First time 5/5
By 1 on 1 love
For my first time I was scared they made me feel very comfortable the longest part was the paperwork I’m donating again I love to help people
Blood App 💉💉 4/5
Giving RH O Negative Blood I Try to give as often as I can... The Apps. Pretty Good, Haven't seen any Badges like everyone else, I don't know what's up with that !? But overall easy to use....!!! 😁
Well designed UI & UX 5/5
Makes donating blood fun. Only ask would be to improve the scheduling feature. Should be able to search by day of week or specific date in the future (farther than one week out). Overall though, very well done!
Love this app 5/5
By Alex Of Ashland
I am a busy mom and this app makes donating so efficient.
Love the ease 5/5
Scheduling appointments is easy. I do wish there were more places closer to my home, but that’s not the Red Cross’ fault. Completing rapid pass and saving it in app makes triage at site run faster. I do wish I could add in the app that I am not eligible for power red donations. I always get call asking if I am interested. But this app is a great tool. Having it keeps me even more motivated to give on a scheduled basis.
Poor app 2/5
I want to donate blood, but I also need to use an app that works to safe time. Rapid Pass entry was a complete fail. Won’t accept any auto fills for my personal info. Had to put fake zip code in even though I have an appointment at an existing zip code. Couldn’t correct my birthdate in the form; wouldn’t let me go on after that. Cancelled my slot due to all these issues. Please fix!
Easy to use! 5/5
Easy to use, especially with the rapid pass!
Not at all user friendly 1/5
This app is terrible. Your are asked to read documents which open in super small PDF files. This requires continually zooming in and zooming out to find it. Then I finished the questions and there was NO option to print or email the questionnaire just options for complete or done. It directs you to your profile to find it but if it's there it's not obvious. I moved through every option and couldn't find it. No time savings at all! I didn't 30 minutes on it and I will have to go through all of it in person anyways. Also the help center isn't answering calls today. This frustration is why more people are not motivated to donate blood.
The new update did not fix the vitals information missing.
Don’t install this update
Vital signs now only go back three visits
The rest of the 27 visits only tell you what you donated and where....like you wouldn’t know that, or care.
I downloaded the app 10 days ago and haven’t been able to use it because it closes on me every time I try to open it. I’ve deleted and reinstalled a few times and nothing seems to work.
Platelet donor 2/5

App doesn’t show scheduled appointments like it use to
Great app 5/5
By Whynot 50
I love this app
I love this concept. I just wish the blood journey was actually working for me. It used to before so I’m not sure what’s going on. Other than that it’s fun!
Almost there! 4/5
I do love this app. I agree with others about Blood Journey not working. My main issue is that I would like to sit in the canteen and schedule my next appointment which I can’t do because the app doesn’t know that I’ve made the donation minutes ago. So I think I’ll do it tomorrow. Everyone knows the end of that story! I’m sure there’s a way to work around that.
Good in theory 2/5
By Squid file
I have never been able to schedule an appointment with the app due to a less than ideal layout and lack of plasma option. More recently, it crashes every time I open it so I can’t even use it for Rapid pass or my donor card anymore.
Love this app!
