Customer Reviews


I've never bothered to write reviews, but the caliber of this app has to be the worst. What makes this ironic is that CU is dedicated to reviewing and making judgements on the "quality" of other products. How would CU rate their own "product"? Seems no matter what you do to login, it will bounce back and forth to login again! The login options are either account/zip or username/password, but it does not matter which you choose, it'll ask for both sets of login options....and still FAILS! Why should I constantly need to login time and time again...when it does finally and randomly log me in. 😡 For this app I give it a filled in black circle. Judgement by your standards "NOT recommended "

Poor App with worse service

This is my second time that the consumer reports app is not working correctly. When you send an email to CR they request you to call their help line. When you call the number you are told that the app is broken and they don't know when they will fix it. It seems that an email, web site banner or updating the app to indicate that the app is out of service would be pro-active. For a company that evaluates products, I would think that this product would fail their tests.

Bait and Switch

I think multiple star ratings because an app installs correctly the first time is over-generous and skews the overall ratings. It installed fine for me to start and went downhill from there. There are too many problems to list here but I wanted to validate all the other one-star raters. It's like having an app flash all the potential in the world at you, but. sorry, you have to pay for the digital version to get it, because it doesn't actually work in this app. I am a long-term print subscriber using on iPad Mini 4.
