Who ever is responding for this worthless app should be examined to see if there an actual brain inside their head. This app is the biggest disappointment in the history of apps.
Does exactly what it says 5/5
Barcode to get your discount. Shows specials. Nothing else. Maybe a stupid millennial will give it 1 star because it won't call an Uber.
Needs Apple Wallet Option 1/5
Please add the ability to add the QR code to Apple Wallet.
Unable to Even Log In 1/5
By SR Jacobson
I’ve had significant issues being able to even log into the app. When I use my password, it says it’s incorrect even though I’m able to use it in Safari to log in. This isn’t a new issue. Had the problem a few months back and deleted the app. I redownloaded thinking the bug was fixed, but it’s not.
I would also like to point out that while it’s connected to the iPhone password manager, it doesn’t populate the fields.
I shop at whole foods weekly and almost never benefit from Amazon prime discounts. I assume my app exists mainly as a portal through which marketing teams gather information.
Unusable with iPhone XS 1/5
Banner completely blocks QR code making the app unusable with iOS 12.1.4 on iPhone XS
Lacks Apple Watch support 3/5
Does what it's supposed to do, but I wish it would show me what's in stock at my local store. Also, I can't believe they killed Apple Watch support! I want the QR code on my watch. Surely that's not so hard!
This app stinks! 1/5
The last four times I’ve been to Whole Foods the QR code doesn’t even show up. Come on Whole Foods, we expect more from you.
It’s just a prime barcode.. I guess amazon ruined the app too. No digital coupons, no weekly ad, locations, etc.
This is quite possibly the most worthless app I've ever used. You really can't do anything worthwhile with it. If you've got prime, you can access the QR code. But you can do that through the Amazon app too.
welcome to the future 1/5
By The Bieg Deal
amazon is by far the most thoughtless company on the planet.
one would think that with a whole foods app you could order groceries and have them delivered.
this app has your QR code (who uses QR codes anymore??) and deals on grapes and frozen chicken nuggets that have no link to anywhere.
Variable QR Code System Issues 1/5
This should be a straightforward app. You arrive at checkout, open the app, and flip to the member card screen, as you would with Safeway, CVS, or really any grocery store app. Instead, this app insists on using a variable QR code system. This requires an active internet connection.
If you are experiencing spotty data coverage or network issues, that means you don’t get to use the Whole Foods app during checkout. You also cannot use your phone number at checkout as a backup method, as is normal at other grocery stores.
I have not been able to use the Prime membership feature during multiple recent Whole Foods trips, and it is for the exact reasons mentioned — last thing I want to do is hold up a line of customers because I’m experiencing a silly tech issue.
A system with a permanently assigned Customer QR code would solve the issue. I have also been informed there is wifi at the store, and I may give that a go. Seems like a system with too many dependencies where the customer ultimately loses out.
Could be better 3/5
I love Whole Foods, I wish that this app was better. There’s lack of browsing almost useless other then scanning my barcode. Sure you see weekly sales but meh I rarely ever need anything on sale. Possibly diet recipes or just foods that lists out of its diet friendly with shopping list for that recipe (whole 30, keto, etc)
Awful, useless 1/5
No search capabilities, no shopping list. You can’t use it! Amazon needs to look at this app again.
Can’t Add to Apple Wallet 1/5
The main reason to download this app is the QR code, but I can’t add it to Apple Wallet. I shouldn’t have to find and launch the app just to scan, then lock, then launch Wallet to pay. Dumb.
Need Apple Watch Support ASAP 2/5
It's annoying that I can pay with my Apple watch but still need to reach out to my phone and unlock and finally find the app and then scan the barcode.
Also allow us to add the barcode to the wallet app.
Cant search!! 1/5
Useless app ever, I don’t have prime membership, so I am deleting this!
Updated - what happened to the recipes? 1/5
Update: still no recipes. And while it’s. I’ve to be able to see the Prime member savings, there’s no way to add those sale items to a shopping list. Still pretty useless.
This app used to contain recipes, now it only provides coupons and sale info. No longer useful for my purposes. Will be deleting it.
Doesn’t show the sale ads 1/5
By Jazz Lover 2010
It won’t show the sale ads. I think it use to show them but now all I can get is what discounts with prime
Doesn’t work 1/5
I downloaded the app, logged in using my password but the app doesn’t work.
Doesn’t work 1/5
This app hasn’t worked in weeks, maybe months. I deleted and re downloaded and same deal. iPhone XS Max
Works great for weekly sales 5/5
Love Wholefoods but hate it’s regular high prices. Don’t shop there except for items on sale. Use it to check for weekly deals before heading to the stores for my shopping. Don’t need to make a trip there if I don’t see something on sale that I would buy. Works great for my purpose. Those reviewers expecting this App to give you a price in everyone item the store stocks is simply unrealistic. It’s not online shopping -lol.
Save to wallet 1/5
Does not allow me to save my code to wallet. It’s 2019, that’s just lazy.
Could be better 1/5
This app used to be great until amazon took over. The only thing this app is good for is the barcode for your amazon prime discount which by the way you can’t take a screen shot of anymore.
If they would bring back the recipes tab and add coupons (similar to targets app) then it would be great.
Needs wallet integration 1/5
Not 100% sure why Whole Foods made an app with only one purpose—the Prime barcode—when this functionality could’ve been thrown right into Apple Wallet instead.
No Apple Wallet support for the QR code? 1/5
What year is this?
I don’t get other reviews! 5/5
The app works great for what it supposed to be, it really doesn’t need additional features. It’s basically a sale flyer/coupon.
Cannot log in 1/5
I have tried for a while now to log in and keeps saying it cannot at this time. Ridiculous. It’s 2019, get it together.
Newspaper ads are better 1/5
The app is great if you want to mindlessly scroll through the items on sale and get dizzy. There is no search option or ability to creating a shopping list.
Very little function or value 1/5
By THE Spacemonkey
Other than immediate access to the barcode, everything I expected in an app for a grocery store is missing - no way to look for product availability or location, no map of stores nearby, actually nothing but the barcode.
Maybe renaming the app “Whole Foods Barcode” would set expectations.
So glitchy 1/5
By make love not war
Trouble signing in, barcode didn’t appear to scan, only works on Whole Foods WiFi, had to delete and reinstall the app multiple times and still didn’t fix issues.
A little clumsy. 3/5
It would be nice to be able to put a Prime Membership credential in Wallet for one less step at the cash register. Or link a credit card in the WF app.
No browsing 2/5
Hello Whole Foods,
I love your store no question about it. Would like to offer an app recommendation. Can you please update your app and let customers browse all your items that you have stocked at each individual store? I really dislike the fact that if I cook and need an ingredient I actually have to call WF’s and wait on the line while the product is either being looked up or searched for.
Otherwise I’d rate you higher.
Only useful for Prime members 2/5
Would love to be able to check inventory, location of items in store, get digital coupons, and make lists, like I can with the Kroger app. As is, this app is just Prime coupons and a sales flyer.
Poor Design 1/5
When I’m creating a menu I need to know where to source ingredients. I use store apps to search if the items I need are on hand. The Whole Food app is only a coupon app. It does not help you locate your item by isle and location or even if your item is on hand at the store. VERY POOR DESIGN. They need to take a lesson from Kroger, Target or WalMart on how to design a useable app!
Never Worked - Waste of Time 1/5
By kat crispens
This app has never worked correctly for me and has never allowed the “prime code” to be scanned. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, and have had Whole Foods customer service look at it, with no luck. I gave up and just have the cashiers scan the code from the Amazon app instead.
Crappy App 1/5
The app worked for months. Now all I get is an error message. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled 10X and same stupid message of a error pops up. Piece of crap app.
I deleted within 10 min after signing in 1/5
I downloaded this app trying to find out what my nearby Whole Foods sells. To some extent I did but only for items that were on sale. It’s very frustrating not being able to search for anything on the app - see what’s in stock, or even if they sell a certain thing* (And when I went to the website it wasn’t much better.) The amazon code for when you’re in store seems like a waste of space as well. I thought I might find more app or store related information after I signed in and out store locator info in but unfortunately I was disappointed. Please make this app more user friendly.
Not thought out to well... 1/5
By i hate tech!
If you are in an area with poor cell coverage it is very difficult to access your membership code. Not sure why there isn’t a way to add the membership code to your Apple wallet.
What’s this app for? 3/5
Should’ve read reviews before download. It’s just a bar code. I have Amazon app, Wholefoods code is easy to find at checkout.
Pretty dinky 1/5
I don’t need to make a list in the app that’s fine but I feel it’s kind of important to list all of your sale items. Most grocery apps so you what’s on sale or what the deals for the week are. I downloaded this thinking it can’t be that bad despite the reviews but... it’s pretty bad. I signed in and looked at the items and there were 10 item listed total. Just seems pointless. Just so what the others have said, get your code on the amazon app or add your phone number.
Couldn’t log in 1/5
Just downloaded this app, but received an immediate “Sorry” message that said it couldn’t reach the network. I’m connected to WiFi, so I’m not sure what network it’s attempting to reach. Maybe I’ll try again later.
Only Prime items can be viewed? 1/5
I would like to explore Whole Foods website in order to explore all Whole Foods has to offer (other products, events...). Am I really only able to see just the products that are advertised for Amazon Prime?
Works great! 5/5
Simply put, it does what it is supposed to!
Cannot use my barcode! 1/5
there is a message that is blocking my barcode i cannot scan for my savings in store!
Leaves a lot to be desired! 1/5
My daughter sent me some 365 coffee, and I decided to order for myself in the future since we don’t live near a Whole Foods Market. I’m not a Prime member, so much of the information on the app pertaining to them wouldn’t apply. (For the record, I can purchase pretty much the same item for less at Walmart.com and don’t have to pay $99 per year for the privilege.)
I want to buy stuff, not see what’s available. It’s not a “shopping” app at all—at least not for me. Guess I’ll have break down and go online.
No Point To It 1/5
Literally just has a barcode. But you can use your phone number for savings and deals. Which means that this app is utterly pointless and useless.
Not Apple Watch compatible 2/5
Nice app, but need to upgrade to be compatible w Apple watch
