Good, not great
Needs work. One super annoying thing is their over-integration of Google's "captcha" nonsense. You have to deal with it over and over to navigate the app. Also, fonts are minuscule, guessing the designers are about 19 years old.
When you finally get to actually use it, it does have some bright spots. Pics of items in purchase history is a nice touch, TouchID integration, etc. I used to frequent REI quite a bit but lately random employees at several stores have been overt a**holes unprovoked, which leads me to believe this company is feeling the pinch of this "boom" economy and is taking it out on their regular customers. Still, the bones of REI are solid and they mostly have decent employees to deal with, hope they crack down on the outliers as they are costing them dearly. So far, complaints to customer service give me a middling feeling anything will be done about them.
Good but needs some tweaking
I have no problem with the overall design and content of the app. I think it's very good. But I moved last month, and my billing address changed as well, and I tried to update both in the app. Every time I saved the changes, the app crashed. Every single time. I had to make the changes on the website instead, and then sign out of my account in the app and sign back in just to update the changes.
Plus, it's a little annoying that the app has to automatically sign me back in every time I open the app, although if that's the worst thing about the app, it's no big deal. Just fix the problem with changing one's personal information in the app so the app doesn't crash.
Shopping became easy
I’m relatively new to online shopping from stores. I prefer to buy products (especially specialty equipment) locally. That being said this app makes researching and buying new gear a breeze. I really like the option to save items in my cart for purchase at a later time, allowing me to research products and refine my shopping to fit my tight budget.
This has easily become my most used app on my iPhone next to mail and safari.
