Works good when it works...

I loved having the convenience of looking at my balance or documents when I wanted to but the last few months I am not even able to log in because it closes on its own. Every time I go to login it closes the app. I’ve tried redownloading it and turning my phone off and on. Super annoying. Someone fix this!!!

Great when it works........

The convenience of checking the balance of your SNAP card is wonderful. It saves time and is much simpler than calling, pressing buttons and entering in your card number. The app is also helpful because you can submit documents by scanning them with your phone.

Unfortunately the app is no longer working on my phone. I can open the app but when I log on, the app repeatedly shut down. The app has been removed from my phone and reloaded. I have shut my phone down and turned it back on. These steps have been repeated several times. Still will not work. Frustrating. Please fix the app!!

I wish I could give 2 1/2 stars

This app works about half the time. It’s great and convenient when it isn’t glitching. I’m glad I have it, but I’m also glad I can just call the number on my ebt card if I want to check the balance. However if I’m trying to upload documents and it’s not working, I’d have to email my worker or drive down to the office.
