The technical issues I had with the app were resolved quickly by a great supportive gent and I can finally see my App experience. All the usual things you’d expect are in there, including an excellent track of my spend to date, but unfortunately no vouchers (whether I’m VIP or not) and no real consideration to my actual individual shopping behavior or location. As a digital version of any storefront, the App is excellent. But as a true digital companion to my shopping experience, some work remains.

Simply put, the experience of the app (and mobisite) to link cards didn't work. After several attempts of installing and reinstalling, and several attempts to register, by the time I did manage to create a profile, the app and mobisite were unable to display the vouchers.

I sincerely hope you'll be able to cease sending me SMS messages informing me of the vouchers until the technology works for me to be able to access them, VIP or otherwise.

I trust this response is far more specific on the issues experienced.

Great App that is easy to use

I am overall very happy with the Woolworths app and it’s usability. I like the list feature as well as easy browsing of all the available products. I have one suggestion. I would like to see more information on the products themselves in the description box. Information such as washing instructions as well as and probably more importantly where the product was made, will help me make a more informed decision on the caring of the products and it’s origin as I am trying to buy more and more local clothing rather than clothing made in China and having that information on hand when shopping online will help a great deal.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for taking the time to write this review, much appreciated. We will be extending the product information soon, starting with food and then clothing next year.

Needs a lot of work

I love Woolies. The app needs work though and I understand that maybe the developers have to pull their data from legacy systems, especially the part where the app still locates my delivery address in Cape Town ( where I opened my account) versus where I currently reside in Jhb. This is despite me editing the address numerous times.

Secondly, a glitch happened where a man’s shirt got into my trolley and I cannot delete it even when I delete and reinstall the app, it still pops up. It’s ghost shirt 😊

I now order online via the web, which is sad because I cannot save my trolley as I can on the app.
