OK, Could be better
Sainsburys appear to have developed their own version of the app, which has now been migrated to be the new Nectar app. It does indeed include the features I requested previously in my original review below.
I guess you can now claim the credit and get your 5 stars! But I’m taking one back because newer issues are now introduced:
You’ve missed a bit a trick with adding Wallet capability however, as I rarely need to open the actual app because of this, so still can miss offers (which are better linked to what I’ve actually bought and likely to buy again).
Also, Sainsburys still print shedloads of random paper offers that should just be auto added to your active offers in the app - I thought we were supposed to be going paperless about 3 decades ago?
The app isn't bad, but there are few niggles that would make it much better. The major omission is the lack of a barcode that can be scanned instead of carrying a physical card. Offers are pretty random from participating stores, and I'm not sure I've received all the points I'm due from participating in these, they're certainly not added immediately, which can be a problem where expiry dates exist. Plus the app needs an Internet connection to give your points balance, instead of caching your last downloaded total for when there is no mobile service, such as my local Sainsburys. A star for each of these additions and you get 5, until then, it's a 2.

Thanks for being part of Nectar and taking the time to leave a review.
Great news! In October 2019 we re-launched the Nectar app with new features (including “Apple Wallet”) and an all new look.
Make sure you’ve downloaded the latest version of the Nectar app, or turn on automatic updates, so you don’t miss out on the latest features and improvements.

Really good app for Sainsburys shoppers...shows you balance instantly.. you can use it to swipe when purchasing in store which means you’ll never miss points if you’ve forgotten your card. Has lots of offers from Nectar affiliated partners which I have used to bump my points.. like £15 worth of points shopping at argos(I was missing these before). The best part though is the sainsburys offers.. I find through the app although the points bonuses are smaller (between 20 and 100 typically) they are on food and items I have bought, would buy or are not too far away from things that I like. Most weeks I typically get the points on 16+ of the 20 items with bonuses because they were on my list anyway. This is much better than when I used to get the tickets in the store and it would be offering me 350 points for dog food (I don’t have a dog) or a take away pizza (I don’t buy ready made food)

This is really nice to hear, thanks for leaving such a lovely review. I'm pleased you're enjoying the app and collecting all those juicy Nectar points. Happy Nectar collecting. Katie - The Nectar Team
Loading and registering is a pain
I tried and eventually succeeded in registering my existing account and making it a new nectar. However, the screens leading up to it do not always work. It wouldn’t let me click/highlight on my address without multiple efforts. I got there in the end but had to flip between my phone (iPhone quite old ) and my iPad newish 6th gen.
Trying to sort these issues via the chat is a joke ! You get a tiny screen (my eyesight is fine thank you ) and have to expand it in order to be able to read. Then you have to drag it across to be able to send the message. To get in to the chat you have to enter your email address and then the first question you are asked is .... wait for it ... your email address 🤣
What is the point of having to load offers ? You are either a nectar account person or not .. this just makes work. I really don’t have to inclination to see if I can get an offer .. isn’t that the point of having nectar in the first place. What a waste of human effort
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
