Buggy and Frustrating


Despite updates this app is still buggy. I’m running it on the latest version of iOS (11.1.2) on an iPhone 7 Plus and I find it a frustrating experience. Having deleted and reinstalled a number of times, I still find that recent transactions don’t show, the balance of points, cash or stamps don’t update. I rely on people on the till telling me if I have completed a coffee stamp card.

There is also an issue where if I try and pay at a till that uses one of the combined tap and pay/IR barcode readers (white box with a laser scanner) then my phone screen usually switches to Apple Pay before the machine is able to scan the Refresh app’s on screen barcode (!). I think I’ve just about perfected the speed/angle/distance move so that I can get the barcode read before the screen changes, not easy or consistent.

Overall, potential to be a useful app, just let down by some really annoying bugs.

Lots to be done


- iPhone X optimization required
- Apple Pay integration within the app for quick top-up would be terrific!
- In addition to the ability to generate several bar codes within the app, please consider exporting one passcode to Apple Wallet, it’s secure since it can only be accessed after passcode is punched in
- Face ID/TouchID integration! It’s been almost 4.25 years since TouchID came into being, the app still doesn’t have it baked in. Implementing that would automatically implement Face ID architecture on supported devices.
- I have 1000s of Refresh Loyalty points, but I don’t have the faintest idea of what they are and what I’m supposed to do with them. There is no guide or system within app to redeem them.

Great idea, below average execution


Frustrating app, poor UX. It seems that the QR codes generated by the app can only be used once before they expire, but the app doesn’t automatically expire the barcodes so sometimes you have to try a couple of different codes before your payments works. The app also won’t show you statements, which makes it impossible to tell whether you’ve been double charged, which seems to happen quite often. In short you’re much better off using the physical card than this flakey app.
