Ratings and Reviews
Too many password changes
I've been using this app pretty much the entire year of 2017 so far it's pretty accurate & it gives all the last transactions & your balance immediately after you use it. The problem is that it keeps demanding a password change every so often & you can't leave it the same or use a previous password. I have had to change my password so many times that I'm now having to make up new passwords different than the 5 that I normally use. It's causing me to keep getting locked out after 3 tries & I have to start all over with my card number & birthday & social & everything. Once it gets to that point it's easier to just call the number because at least then all I have to enter is the card number. I do make a note of each password change but sometimes (like this time) it tells me the password is wrong when I know for sure that it's definitely right. The app has also been freezing a lot since the last update. I'm writing this review because I'm now locked out once again & my card is not with me so I won't be able to check my balance until later today which means I can really plan ahead & make a grocery list. In the mean time I'll look for a better app or just stick to the old way of calling & putting in the card number.
Used to be my favorite app, but it's been broken for months
I used to use this app every single day. I live in PA and I use an iPhone 5S running 10.2.1 and it hasn't been working on my device for months. I've communicated a few times with the developers but they still have yet to repair the problem after all this time. I know the PA ebt portal wasn't working for a while but it seems to be working on my one friend's device again- just not mine. I can log into the connectebt website with no problems whatsoever so that tells me this is an issue on the app/developer end. I'm extremely disappointed to see the lack of a fix for this problem. Even when it was working, it never really fully functioned. The coupon section never loaded and the app was always a bit slow. So disappointed to finally be deleting this app after how immensely useful it used to be for me. I'm going to try a different developer's app and hope for better results. I do hope they manage to fix this someday- I know I can't be the only one using this kind of a device and having no luck with this app. Heads up to other people with older devices- this app likely won't work for you and seems to get little support from developers.
Sorry about this issue, and thanks for pointing out your state. Can you email email@example.com? We'll give you a few steps to troubleshoot. If the issue is still persisting, there is likely some problem with the connection to the PA EBT portal, which we should be able to address. Thanks! -Jimmy
Ease of use and security
This app is very useful to me. Makes things a lot faster when I need to know my balance. All I have to do is open the app, and my balance is there. No dialing numbers and choosing options or listening to any irrelevant information. Simple and to the point. I have not had to change my password at all. The only reason an app would lock you out , is for security measures, because after multiple tries it thinks you are someone else trying to get into the account . If you have issues logging in , it could be a simple typographical error , such as a wrong letter or number on the keyboard . There is no app or software that will let you use the same password multiple times; that is a security feature . Security features keep our information from being stolen and keep us from being the victim of identity theft or robbery.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
