Doesn’t load... this is not user friendly

So I’ve had this app for nearly a month now and it’s just recently been having a problem for me. Face ID works but then it just has that spinning circle saying it’s loading yet it never does. Sometimes it won’t even do that and it’ll just say server error or something like that. At this point it’s rare for me to even use the app since it’s much quicker to actually turn on my PC and wait for it to come on and then go on the EBT website to just see transactions and such. Yes I can just text that number “BAL/MINI” and get the info but I’d rather see the more in depth info like when it’ll be posted/available and more since the basic info given in the text is blatantly confusing when you’ve never had an EBT card before. Like I said in the title it’s not user friendly well it’s even worse for those who are new to EBT cards and it makes the whole system look trash when they can’t even make a decent app. Now that it never loads I just log onto access and find the info much faster! If you have a card get this app only if you’re ready to see the 50/50 chance of you even being able to get on!

Best app for simple needs~

I read the reviews before downloading this app, and a couple made me think it wasn’t going to be easy to use or would have some compatibility issues with my tech, but that was not the case! Honestly this app was by far the simplest app I think I’ve ever used, I also chose it because of its smaller size compared to the larger comparable app that I was looking at (ebtt fresh or something) this app is a bit smaller & therefore will take up less room on my device (iPad Air), & I’m always needing more space! So I downloaded it, opened the app, & on the first page it asked for the number on my card, & second page asked for my pin, & that was it! After two steps I already had all my info in front of me & was done! It gives you the option to stay logged in if you want to keep your info open, or logout when you’re done for anyone who prefers to keep their balances & transaction history private, it’s that SUPER simple! GREAT ease-of-use and was all I needed to get my balances anytime anywhere without having to call and suffer through the automated system hearing my words or numbers wrong. I highly recommend this app!

Horrible app design

First, signing in is a task in itself. It doesn’t let iOS store the log in info so I had to manually do it, and it requires a log in every single time the app is opened. It does not save the session if swapping between apps regardless of the amount of time. Recovering your password is a joke, just do it on the desktop.

Second, it’s slow and there’s popups for live chat assistance that constantly drop down over the top menu bar so you have to clear the live chat notification every few seconds to open the settings bar.

Third, the settings are non-existent. It just lets you sign out. Which is just done by existing the app anyways.

Fourth, it forgets my EBT account about once a week. Conveniently while I’m checking the balance while at the store most of the time because I’m paranoid I won’t have enough at checkout and my memory is terrible so I can’t remember it very well unless I’ve checked it over and over and over and over.

For being an app for a food fund for poor and disabled folks, it’s not very user friendly. It needs to be nuked into orbit and redone as an app with saved login credentials and no popups. Allowing FaceID would be a major plus. Adding my EBT card to my Wallet would be a dream. For now though, I’d just like an app that works at least half the time.
