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.
Developer Response ,
Sorry about this issue, and thanks for pointing out your state. Can you email firstname.lastname@example.org? 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
Great app for a great program
I’ve recently faced some major life challenges, some of which I conquered and others that admittedly knocked me down and out. I’ve never thought I’d need public assistance, so when life led me down a path from successful self employed business man to homeless with zero income and the hoards of people who always sought to be near me have all but vanished, it left me in a very dark place.
I say all that because it helped me to appreciate the help provided by the state, and efforts to provide this help in an easy as possible way with things like this app. Going from homeless and hungry to just homeless, hey make glass is half full! The assistance provided food, which in turn provides an overall content feeling allowing a more peaceful and hopeful mind. The app just made all this that much better, by allowing you to check balance, history or purchases, as well as tips for saving and job opportunities too. It’s map of participating retailers and vendors is invaluable and I’ve never waited more than a few seconds for the app to update its information (in the few instances that it wasn’t already updated when I logged in).
This may be the longest review of the app with saying the least about the actual app, but the state and county officials and workers that made this all possible need some kudos from time to time too. So thank you! Your work is appreciated.
