    It's a start, but I wouldn't consider the Rapid Pass "within the app".. It's just a redirect to the website that opens in the browser, which is better than nothing I suppose.. However, it would be nice to have it actually within the app and the responses save to your profile thus only needing a review before each donation... Please make it happen Red Cross! Full Review

    The app looks and works great for the most part. A note to the developers: the database needs to be updated such that when the ARC changes the time of a blood drive, to exclude times that donors have scheduled for, it notifies the donor of the change in time or does not allow ARC to change the times. Assuming the database is SQL, this should be a simple onUpdate change for blood drive times. Full Review

    The blood journey only shows when you donate whole blood. Can the app show for platelets also, awesome knowing our donations help someone. It would nice to see that right in the app as well. Full Review

    I have found the app hasn't worked on Google Play Store for about 2 weeks. Hard to use the app if it just shuts down Full Review

    Doesn't always sync if I've made an appointment. For example, my profile window says I haven't made any appointments. I did make one though. I called Red Cross and they confirmed that I did indeed have one. This app seems to have a few bugs. Another complaint is I can't change my profile pic. Frustrating! These issues should be fixable I would think. Full Review

    A waste of time, none of the pre donor links worked. They just give a blank tab. Full Review

    Is this app real? After 6 months of use I have yet to find a drive within 40 miles. Maybe Red cross is trying to discourage donations. Why can't I just see a list of drives within a radius for the year. Full Review

    Third time I've made an appointment with the app. Third time they have not had my paperwork ready. It's really frustrating seeing aside 2 1/2 hours to be told to wait 20 minutes will they get your paperwork. Full Review

    I liked the appointment schedule on the previous version, but this is lost on the recent update (Dec2017). The app now has none of my future appts available. Need to fix that Full Review

    This app was great prior to this last version. I can no longer see my appointments that I have already scheduled. The previous version allowed me to see my appointments. Please fix this. Thank you! Full Review

    The app is getting better, much appreciated. But the rewards are getting worse. The new rewards were made by someone who cannot figure out antialiasing - how pathetic! The scheduler teaches me arrogantly about the difference between software and hardware arrows instead of just getting me to the previous page. Or maybe it could ask me what I want? How hard is it to make a separate button for eligibility instead of hiding it under donation history? Eligibility is not history! Surprise, surprise! There is _another_ donation history with vital signs under "Donor Card". Donations are measured is units, lives and gallons - three ways! I don't see the value of donation types in those units. A platelet donation "saves" 3 or 6 "lives" inconsistently. The whole notion of using "lives" as a score to measure the impact is disrespectful to the human life. To make the matter worse, the lives saved by teams are rounded to thousands. The 207 "lives" "saved" by me are just a rounding error for my team. Yet a loss of 207 actual lives would have been in the headlines for days if not weeks. Full Review

    Very nice to have an electronic donor card and complete rapid pass from my mobile device. Would be nice to have rapid pass QR code saved within the APP itself. Full Review
