Excellent app. You can save lives!
Thorough this app I could learn what I have to do in emergency situations. Every people have possibility of facing the emergency situation in their own life or someone else's while we are living. So when we know what we have to do in emergency situations we can save more lives. This app is the first step for make it possible.
I installed this app several years ago. At that time there was no quiz section but these days it has. The quiz section is really helpful. Through quiz I could assessed not only my knowledge was right but also corrected wrong knowledges previously I had and got some new informations.
I strongly recommend this excellent app for everyone.
I have no confidence in this app when attempting to schedule or reschedule a platelet donation. Every time I attempt to, it requires a phone call to the Red Cross to correct the schedule. Why use it at all when the dates seem to get mixed up every time I attempt to schedule or postpone an appointment? I do like using the app to fill out the Rapid Pass, but I won’t be using the app to do any scheduling from now on. I also don’t like depending on the app to keep track of all my donations. I have a whole stack of plastic cards from my days of donating whole blood and platelets. I’ve been a whole blood donor since 1986 and the Red Cross discontinuing the tracking of donations on the plastic cards saddens me.
I was just checking out the app, and it looks like a good chunk of it is accessible. But, in the quizzes there is one area where it is not. It’s the quiz that talks about what to do if someone is bleeding. Three out of the four questions and answers are accessible. But, number two is not. How do you expect a blind person to be able to be able to touch the spot where you put a tourniquet. Come on! You’re the American Red cross. You should be able to get this right. If this gets fixed I will fix my reading.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
