Thankfully I’ve physical card instead

Since this review they got their app in order insofar as it’s functionally useful as before (and nicer UI etc.). No hang up on being required by having no way of re-identifying yourself. If you have an account, email login & credentials get you back to your account as a funding source for charging & no special requirement for a physical RF card to start every charger. Changed from highly generous 2stars to now 4stars for functionality (eventually)

Resolved Review post-new app rollout is below for context:
“Briefly worked fine for me after its roll-out a wk ago or so but since then it no longer has my acct info & (like other reviewers note) I’m unable to complete the sign-in process (again) because it will not let me proceed past an empty set of choices for vehicle make. Have alerted humans on the always helpful customer svc side of things & hopefully it get resolved soon for right now the app is useful only as a locator of stations on a map”

Still not enough info

*No app indication of charge status ongoing
*No symbol key to indicate what blue, green, or a lock key indicate with any clarity
*Consistently told me a charger was unavailable when it wasn’t in use

Usually we trickle-charge at home but due to circumstances we decided we’d run our Leaf next door to use a Blink charger. The app indicated there was 0/1 available. There are two chargers but one was offline. Thing is, after waiting 90 minutes, I took the car over and saw no car charging. Fine, whatever. Hooked up and started charging. Then realized the app tells me nothing about how far along we are in charging. It barely tells me it’s on a charger at all; just a lightning bolt on the map. Other charging network apps tell us how much charge has been dispensed (and how much the cost is so far). Disappointed, especially when these two units had just got back online, now one is offline again and the app had just been updated. I finally unplugged after 90 minutes with no indication of how much had been dispensed, to find my car was at 100%. Why was it still charging, then?

Waste of time

Terrible interface, waste of time, never was able to charge. You first have to download the terrible app, only to have to input everything, create an account. At one point the “save and next” button is hidden behind your phones keyboard without being able to lower the keyboard or hit “done”. So good luck figuring that one out. After that was conquered the app takes your cc and charges. Ready to go, right? Wrong. Click button to start charging which takes you to Swipe to start charging which takes you to click button to start charging which takes you to swipe…. You get the idea. Never charged . And hey geniuses at Blink… why not put the charger numbers on the charger?!! Instead you print a sign and tape it to the charger that says “north is 195 and south is 198”. Yeah let me get my compass out to check on that. Then which is 1 and which is 2. Would it be hard to write 198-1 or 198-2 on the machine? It doesn’t matter though, this app is terrible. Had to find a ChargePoint.
