This has to be a joke 1/5
I opened this app expecting to be able to check stock and create a grocery list for my local Whole Foods store...and I'm greeted by a barcode. Why did you even bother making this app?
Useless as is 1/5
The app needs to do a lot more than it does. After scrolling through the sales, I too was trying to figure out how to get to more features in the app as another reviewer mentioned. It took me a minute to realize there was nothing else in there besides the sales and QR code because it’s so unexpected. You’d think especially with Amazon acquisition they’d have at least the same functionality as the apps for other stores if not more.
Maybe there’s a better app in the works, but right now it’s just not up to par with today’s standards and other grocers, and a waste of space on my phone.
APP IS NOT WORKING!!! 1/5
I shopped sale items at Whole Foods and couldn’t get the Prime discount. Manager worked with me but it was useless!
Expect better from a large company.
Does not apply prime 1/5
I just paid way too much for my groceries because this app, the website, and the other Amazon app are all failing t9 acknowledge the fact that I have prime. I have been usingprime consistently and still have access to all of the other membership benefits. This functionality is broken. I use an XR.
This app is very incomplete. Definitely needs revisions.
1) I should be able to see all things, not just things on sale.
2) I should be able to sign into my account even if I am not a prime member.
3) I should be able to click the “hamburger” icon, which is currently non-existent, to see options.
Needs Apple Wallet and/or lock screen 2/5
It’s just a basic bitmap display, which works fine, but why not add support for iOS lock screen or Apple Wallet display? The entire point of the app is to scan your barcode. Make it easy to do that. Then if people want to look at specials, they can open the app.
Agree with 2013 style grocery app 3/5
Whole Foods offers delivery and pickup but you have to do this on your browser. Why not have that function on the app? Also would love feature for shopping list and info about my local Whole Foods store.
WHERE IS THE SEARCH BAR ?? 2/5
I’m trying to look up certain items that I have purchased to see what their pricing is at my store. There’s no search button?? What a pain!! I’m not going to scroll through all of the sale items when there’s a specific item I’m looking for. Please, fix this or I will go online and buy it!
Not much to the app. 2/5
All you get is some coupons and the barcode to show at Wholefoods.
They even miss the opportunity to include the barcode in the wallet app, which would make more sense.
Forced to download and it doesn’t work 1/5
Whole Foods took the QR code off of my Amazon prime website. I was told I had to download this app in order to get the sale items. This app crashes every time I put in the OTP code. I can’t get any prime deals. I’m done with Whole Foods. Safeway gives me discounts with my phone number. I’m going there or Sprouts or TJs. F this.
Meh. Skip the download. 1/5
No different than the email I got encouraging me to download the app. Some (15-18?) sales listed. A barcode to scan at the register (which the Amazon app has as well). Be useful as a shopper to a) add an item to a list, b) see if the item is in my store and its price. Pretty basic in grocery apps, no? Uninstalled.
Worthless app 1/5
If you have the Amazon app and you have a prime account, then you don’t need this app, all it really does is just give you the prime barcode, which you can do from the Amazon app.
By Dog gonna it
There is really no use for this app you can give your telephone number at the register I never really use the app and there’s no functionality to it
Apple Watch App? 4/5
I love the app but it would be more convenient to have a Apple Watch app so I didn’t have to pull my phone out every time I want to use the Prime discount.
Pretty Basic 2/5
Not a lot happening here. Barely worth the download. No Wallet support.
Can't add to QR code to Wallet 1/5
They never update the app or respond to feedback. But the title says it all, why can't we add this to our wallet and save some time?
What’s the point of this app? 1/5
Seriously? you can’t even search if certain items are available in our specific store, like with the Ralphs or Target app. Waste of app space.
Fine for deals but no wallet support!? 2/5
By Bryan 17 Driver
If this were the “While Foods Deals” app then it’d get a couple more stars but since it’s not...really Whole Foods, this is the best you can do?
It’s a clean but simple layout and the UI is fine. It’s seriously lacking in features, though. No locations map, store hours, order ahead, store layout, push notification settings, purchase history...there are so many options!
But most of all, please add wallet support!!! That’s literally half the point of this app (to provide the QR code) and Apple has already built that into iOS for you in an infinitely better executed way!!!
Seriously, please...wallet support 🙏🏻
Needs features. 1/5
Hard to believe this is the whole foods official app. They must really want you to come into the store because the app doesn’t DO anything. Not even a simple shopping list? No list view of sale items? This app actually makes it harder to shop at whole foods.
This app is utterly useless. There's no ability to search for in store products. Which makes me wonder how Amazon could know what it can or can't ship to me?
Needs a lot of work 1/5
A barcode comes up?
No idea what to do.
Also the app does not let me order like Meijer and Kroger and deliver? Is there two different Amazon Whole Foods apps?
What gives Amazon team?
So frustrated 1/5
I can’t even rate the app. I’ve been trying for a week now to simply log in to the Whole Foods app. With my amazon UN & PWD so that I can link them. EVERY single time I’ve tried it glitches, the screen goes black and brings me to my Apple home screen! None of my other apps give me this issue.
I honestly can't believe this app is put out by Amazon. Even just basic things like inventory searching. I'm honestly amazed this app is so minimal.
Way less than what it was. 2/5
The original app did allow shopping list creation. It also has recipes—and a data base that you could use to find recipes for specific ingredients. It’s not just that it doesn’t do these things; it’s that it DID 6-8 years ago.
Not very useful 2/5
Ditto what everyone else said - I thought I was missing something but verified the app is a disappointment when I read the reviews.
I’d also like to see more functionality added to this and the website - purchase history, at least, like all other grocery store apps, so I can easily re-purchase or Prime Now what I need.
Both the Prime Now & this app are abysmal. And how long ago was Whole Foods purchased by Amazon?
This app is just sad. As one that enjoys shopping at Whole Foods, I like to organize what I'm going to get and mark what I want on sale. You cannot do any of this. It's ironic this app comes from a company founded out of the tech giant center of Austin.
Please add “ USE GIFT CARD” function 4/5
Great usability and easy access to ad but just one thing, I want to pay by my gift card amount via app.
App is the worst 1/5
I can’t open it. When I re-boot it spins. A totally worthless app.
How Could You Do This To Us? 1/5
Lol, no joke... this is the worst shopping app I’ve even seen. Not optimized for iPad at all and lacks all features you think it would innately have.
I second the 2013 style app review 2/5
The previous review had my lol! Totally agree - especially the chores part. I don’t want to be food shopping, I want get this done and get the H E double hockey sticks up on outta here - all due respect, it IS lovely store and all. :)
I got logged in, scrolled through the prime deals and then was trying to figure out how to get to the other features. Then I was like ok is there ANOTHER app I’m supposed to use? The apps for Sprouts, and Safeway, and Fry’s all let me actually shop and place my order for pickup or delivery in the app. That’s what I’m trying see happen here. Come on guys, what gives?
More options 2/5
By PIXELATED AND BLURRY PHOTOS
Please add some more options to the app. It’s great seeing what’s on sale but add a search bar, barcode scanner, divide everything into sections (produce, deli, etc).
This app has no functionality
Basically a QR code 2/5
Useless except for that. Everything else you could get on the website
No Search? 1/5
By Computer 4
No search, no shopping at Whole Foods.
Clunky savings card views 3/5
There isn’t a comprehensive way to view savings. Try a similar UI to slickdeals for better engagement, experience and accessibility.
Waste of a grocery store app 3/5
I get that this is caters more toward prime members, but why is the no navigation what so ever. You literally have to go through the sales in order to see what your looking for is on there of not. This app could be 10,000 times better then what it is now 😑
Ever since updating the app, all my favorite recipes are missing!! And when I try to re-add them, they don't go in the favorites!
Please update the app to restore all my favorite recipes!!
Needs improvement 1/5
I remember the old app, years and years ago. You could make lists and they had recipes on it! I literally cannot do anything on this version! It’s so pointless to have. With getting a new phone and having more storage I was looking forward to redownloading this app, I was definitely disappointed! It’s so not worth the space on your phone, I should have listened to all of the other terrible reviews!
What’s the point? 1/5
I don’t understand the point of this app. It has no function other than to pull up your QR code and show you that cherries are on sale. That’s it. No ordering online for store pickup like EVERY OTHER STORE IN THE UNIVERSE, no search for prices or inventory, no reason to make me want to even go into the store.
Extremely Limited Functionality 2/5
I have several apps for other grocery chains that have much more functionality than this app. There’s no ability to make a list and see what prices the store might be charging for certain items. Sprouts, Wegmans, and even Target will show me the prices I’ll pay for my pantry staples, produce, and other items. So what if I get a 10% discount for being a Prime member? Doesn’t seem worth it if I can’t see if my budget allows me to shop there. Might be time to cancel my Prime membership.
What gives 2/5
By Arde, Liz
Why am I not able to search up certain foods, the old Whole Foods app let me do that. Now I can only see some of the things that are on sale. Inconvenient
2013 style grocery app 2/5
You can pull up your prime barcode. You can view some sales. That is all.
Half a decade ago, I might’ve not wanted more out of a grocery store app.
These days, I’m used to shopping at Target, Walmart, and H-E-B. They all have apps that let me make shopping lists, check whether items are in stock at a given location, check prices for each item, AND view a map of the given location to see which aisle each item is located!!
Whole Foods is dreadful, because I just end up wandering around their unnumbered aisles, hoping to stumble into the correct one. I prefer certainty and efficiency. I love the selection, and prefer the quality I can find at Whole Foods, but wow do they make it difficult.
I mean the whole brand has this holier than thou vibe, and I get it: maybe I should let myself feel a bit superior for taking care of my body and the planet with my purchasing decisions, but I’m gonna be totally honest...
GROCERIES ARE A CHORE, AND I DONT LIKE LINGERING ON CHORES.
Please add some more functionality to this app.
Completely worthless as is.
Does not work 1/5
I can’t even get the app to work or open even in Whole Foods store. Says have to connect to network
An average app to crap app 1/5
The new app is totally useless. Pull your head out of your backside Amazon/Whole Foods. Literally could not do a thing with it of any value. Pure 💩
Implement click to save!!! 1/5
By Auntie Cee 719
This seems very basic! Let us click on the items we want to purchase to save them so we don’t have to skim through the whole list of specials in-store please. No need for a huge app but let’s save a couple steps. Thanks
Waste of time... 1/5
A billion dollar company that can’t make a simple App?
Not worth the space on you phone 1/5
There is no search function. They only tell you what’s on sale, and even then it’s only about 10- 15 products. I’m not able to find out if my local store has the products I want. The only option I have for that is ‘find more in the store.’ There is also no shopping list function. The only thing this app is good for is the barcode, and even then you can just put your phone number in at checkout. I wouldn’t even waste the time to download it.
You can’t search the store for products anymore!! 1/5
I used to be able too search what was available in the store. It was hard but something vs using the browser. Now I can’t at all!! I’ll just continue giving my number to the casher to pull up my prime,till hopefully this gets fixed. Will reavalute my review with the next “update” 🙄. Uninstalling.
Why no passbook? 1/5
Why can’t this just put a pass into your wallet you can bring out when you pay instead of fumbling for the app you only ever use when you go to wholefoods. It would be a lot easier. The app itself as no value.
