Needs A LOT of work
When this app actually works, like about half the time, it's good. Chip and ticket count are accurate and in real time.
But that's when it all starts unraveling. When it works, it's always slow. It can take up to a full minute to get data, and that's even on a high speed Wifi connection (50+ mbps, with <30 ms ping). And even then, a lot of the time it'll simply be stuck or after a while it'll just say that it can't receive any data from the server. And if you have multiple cards, it may even confuse itself and show the wrong card balance. Luckily the balances are different enough where I know which is which, but if I didn't I'd have no idea.
To this day I have never received any offers via the icon. And I really don't trust this app enough to buy chips on it.
Further suggestion: link the app to the nationwide and local D&B's Facebook feed and/or Twitter handle to keep info up to date, especially when you have one-day only specials or events going on, or just to get buzz going.
Horrible, Useless, and Should Be Removed from the App Store
When this app did work once upon a time, all it was good for was to check your card balance whenever their website was acting up. Now you can't even log in to do that! Forget the whole "charge from your phone" gimmick, since it doesn't even honor coupon specials that get e-mailed to you. You're actually better off waiting in line, especially if you are trying to get a special like their "$20 for $10" game room coupon.
There's no reason for this app to even be available since it doesn't do what it used to do back when it worked. Apple needs to remove this from the iTunes App Store simply on the grounds that it does not work.
Never had any problems
I have been using this app for a year now and never had any problems. The only thing I would like to see added is a transaction history of the card. Being able to see what games were played last and how many tickets you just added or spent would be really nice.
