A poor excuse for a health app
The katzmeow on 4/20/2018
This Walgreens app seems like no one is reviewing this app for updates or cares how it is reviewed. I purchased a Walgreens Blood Pressure Monitor that was supposed to sync with the Walgreens app. The app always crashes and when it does open (rarely) it cannot connect wirelessly. My information is always gone after a crash. By connecting with the app you are also supposed to receive Balance points towards in store purchases, but that is yet to happen as well. Poor health integration, poor customer follow-up and not worth a download.
App won’t stay open
RVas288 on 4/20/2018
I log in and it sends me a code and I put the code in and push submit and the whole app shuts down. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling, restarting my phone - nothing works. Looking at the rating of the app, I can see why. Fix the app or don’t advertise on your blood pressure cuffs that you have all of these options - cause they don’t work!
Clem Kadiddlehoper on 4/20/2018
As soon as i try to log in, the app dies. I called customer support. They couldn’t help so they said tech support would call me. That was two weeks ago and no call.
Useless app

This app wont even open. Immediately crashes on launch. IPhone X
Not Walgreens worthy
Gooding on 4/19/2018
I could’ve bought a blood pressure monitor for half the price but I loved the idea of the Bluetooth feature and the record keeping ease. I do agree I think Time of day would be most helpful but that’s probably available in the next price range. The problem is I counted on Walgreens ap and product to perform and they let me down. The ap worked beautifully for a few weeks but will no longer load. I expected more from products with Walgreens brand.
Worst app u can possibly use
harley8647 on 4/18/2018
Worked fine until the new IOS update the simply does not work at all-it looks like it is logging in the just goes back to your home screen-I did contact Walgreens support and off course they just ask u a lot of questions and then u don’t hear from them again-so do not purchase the premium blood pressure monitor you can not use the software with the phone as advertised-they haven’t updated the app in 11 months so go figure folks-hopefully this will save u folks some money before u buy-u would expect more of Walgreens than this-wow-I am done with Walgreens period-will go to Walmart for all- Dan
Problems opening app
JerseyDarren on 4/16/2018
Multiple problems opening app after login. Tried deleting and reloading with no luck. Also tried to link and sync my FitBit charge HR to the Walgreens rewards app and Customer service tech chat agent didn’t even problem solve other than telling me there’s no problem on their end and I should contact fitbit. Fitbit’s working fine, so wrong answer! Didn’t even offer to escalate my issue or try any alternatives. Very poor level of customer service and tech support for such a very innovative and promising App.
martinl007 on 4/13/2018
If you can’t even open the app, just stop and take it down!! This is the most ridiculous app I have ever seen!! It won’t even open!!! Stop!!!!!
Useless. Lost all my BP data
Alexith on 4/12/2018
Worked for a while then suddenly stopped. No longer opens. Now I can’t access my valuable BP data. Don’t use this app to track your data.
Ret./Fd on 4/11/2018
Worst app ever!!!! Cannot sign in ! Deleted three times and reinstalled. Keeps clicking out of app!!! HORRIBLE!!!!
Currently Useless
WizofOz58 on 4/11/2018
App used to work with my iPhone 8 plus. I have the latest updates installed. Now it crashes all the time. Tried uninstalling which trashes the data. App should give you the option to retain data. Who designs this stuff? Please fix and I will revise the review.
App crashing
Frankeeezzzee on 4/11/2018
The app will not open. In addition to not synchronizing to my new 80 dollar bp machine (excessively price d/t Bluetooth capabilities), I can’t see the bp trend through out the month. I thought I would give it a week or two until they released a new version or fixed it but still nothing has changed. If you are reading this to help determine if you will buy the bp machine. Go with the cheaper one. Walgreens is not investing in good app developers. I am afraid that if the app doesn’t even open what happens to all the data stored. They most likely did not spend much money on data security if they did not spend enough to make it functional.
False advertising
Doublelayer on 4/10/2018
I bought the $80 BP monitor because it had Bluetooth that would sync with this app. Crashes every time I try to use it.
Blue Tooth Capability is Awful
jebow12 on 4/8/2018
Don’t buy the 930BT blood pressure monitor. It does not sync with the Walgreens Connect App to my Balance Rewards. There is no “connect” button when trying to add a device. Since the login updates have occurred, my app opens for a brief second and then closes. What’s going on WAG?
Keeps crashing
Alx0516 on 4/5/2018
I bought a new Bluetooth enabled blood pressure monitor to keep track of my readings but the app to keep track of the readings keeps crashing right after login information is inputed. Horrible app.
Are you kidding me?
Plasmastorm on 4/2/2018
Talk about false advertising, this app is supposed to sync to my blood pressure machine, my pulse ox monitor, and my glucose meter. When I tap the add device option it laughs at me and says yeah right. I haven’t been able to sync anything. I paid over $80 just for the BP machine because it was supposed to sync my stats to the Walgreens app so I had all the into in one place for my Dr. looks like I am calling a consumer attorney and taking this garbage back to stallgreens.
DrBob23 on 3/28/2018
Great works as planed!
-5 Stars
Pseudo Nym on 3/8/2018
Wish there were a negative star rating. As others noted, when attempting to connect the 930BT via Bluetooth, a dialog stating "Device not supported" is displayed. Perhaps if the BP cuff marketed for use with this app actually connected the app might be useful. I will never know for sure as I am headed back to Walgreens to return for refund as the device doesn't function as advertised. -5 stars for wasting my time.
Pointless app
JBergevin1988 on 2/25/2018
What's the point of the app? Doesn't tell you any useful information. Doesn't show BP history. Doesn't even show you which user used it last. Only shows you the very last BP reading and that's it, no other information. Waste of a lot of $$$. I got this Bluetooth monitor so I wouldn't have to use a paper and pencil to track my BP. I still have to use a paper and pencil.
Walgreens connect app
jefan on 2/15/2018
Horrible app for such a great meter! Dumped the app within minutes All that was required is an app that allows me to review my results over a year Will continue to use the spreadsheet I created to track my trends Really poor app that requires to much personal information for Walgreens use not the end user or doctor JNewman
Dread Lord CyberSkull on 2/10/2018
This app does not use Apple Health, making all the measurements it takes from the various devices worthless.
Lazy design
ReconMarine1969 on 2/8/2018
All in all the app was designed quickly and lazily. It is not optimized for ease and simplicity. That’s on a good day. On a bad day the app stays on the opening screen with a circle spinning round and round saying “signing in.” After about 15 minutes of this, including completely closing out and reopening the app several times- I just gave up. Pretty much what I’ve come to expect from this company.
pwl264 on 1/26/2018
Worst app I have ever seen
JohnnyLLong on 1/21/2018
Bluetooth transmit of blood glucose reading does not work. Called Walgreens support and after talking with numerous reps they finally admitted they did not know how it works. Big zero stars!
Not good
Jimmy the Catholic on 1/11/2018
Finally got it to sync but won’t log readings.... that’s the whole point of “tracking.” Cmon Walgreens, your app makes it easy to buy things .... make it do what it says it will do. Typical company more interested in making a dollar than doing a good job.
Does not sync to device
meanbeard on 12/28/2017
I bought this blood pressure monitor that contains instructions for syncing to this app. However, this app says my device is not supported, despite the fact that the app uses a picture of this device as the example photo. Pretty much what I expected from Walgreens, but disappointing nonetheless.
Terrible App
Malachi W on 12/16/2017
App does not sync with BP cuff, does not save password, and requires two step authentication to sign in and again if any changes within the app are made. Clunky, overly complicated user interface, and does not write to Apple Health app, which is supposed to serve as a central repository of health information. Pay a few dollars more for an Omron BP cuff and actually get the smart functionality that is advertised for this app that doesn’t really exist. I ended up returning two Walgreens blood pressure machines and getting an Omron instead because the app wouldn’t work.
frederick9 on 12/16/2017
Easily synced; seems to work fine.
Ladygee12 on 11/9/2017
App is OK, but history does not record the time and date blood pressure was taken. I wish this data was viewable at all times. You only see date; time BP results after initial sync with monitor. Please update app to show day and time in history as well as BP results.
Can’t believe they sell this stuff!
wiliap on 10/18/2017
Just like many people on here, I could not pair my BP wrist cuff with the terrible app. Got the same message “not supported”. Waste of time will return it tomorrow.
Failure App
NoNicknamesLeft6479536 on 10/15/2017
Actually, giving it one star is being generous. They obviously did not hire IT people who knew how to write apps. After reading the reviews I decided to not waste half the night trying to sync this nor will I be calling their support as others reviewed that their support didn't know anything about it either. Found a review that said they were able to sync their blood glucose monitor through the manufacturer's app. Best review advice I found. I searched the manufacturer in the app store, found the app for my device and within SECONDS my phone was connected to my device. Will be deleting the Walgreens Connect app as it is garbage..... not sure review will post as I have tried MULTIPLE times to post but tells me EVERY TIME the nickname is taken.....
Not good
Cmoney4 on 10/11/2017
Bought for the Bluetooth functionality. Tried to pair it with the app and app said that the device is not supported even though I had to select my model when setting up the account and it had a pic of my device on the screen. Will be returning it tomorrow.
Doesn’t work
troysteris on 10/6/2017
Will not open on my Samsung S8. Type in my username and password and it just closes.
Very disappointed
DMedlam on 9/26/2017
Now, let me preface everything I’m about to say with this: 1) I’m extremely technologically proficient, my background is mostly hardware, my degree is information systems 2) I’ve used other Walgreens apps before and have for years to manage my prescriptions. Love them. This app is behaving like a hunk of junk. I don’t know if it’s because of the new iOS 11 update and maybe things haven’t caught up or what. I bought a new glucose monitor today and I specifically got the one with Bluetooth because I like compiling all my various data from my various devices so I can take it all to my doctor so he can see my history and progress. Even though THIS APP is the app that the instructions said to get— it does not work with my monitor. The app refuses to pair with my device. My phone settings say that it’s paired and connected. App still says “device not supported.” ITS THE ONLY DEVICE! Its not like there was a range of options of meters with Bluetooth that were Walgreens branded and I made an oopsie and got the wrong one. No! I got the only one! Lest we forget the directions specifically said THIS APP. So I ended up doing some digging and decided to forget Walgreens. It did not take long to browse the actual manufacturers website and low and behold they, too, have an app. So I decided to give it a whirl. You know what happened? It synced the information and test results off the device and onto my phone before I even knew what really happened. It was fantastic! Developers: please get your stuff together and sort this out.
To much security
seaotters on 9/25/2017
I had deleted the app and wanted to go back in. It took almost 10 minutes of being asked different times for me to prove I'm not a robot. Deleted the app and found one that wasn't so locked up. I appreciate the security but good grief it's just my blood pressure. The app shouldn't raise my blood pressure!!
Arm bp monitor
Mr Caro on 8/16/2017
Love this app
Awful, awful, awful
Red Grange on 6/30/2017
Worst experience ever trying to first sync a glucose meter (and 2 calls to Walgreens help line was useless- they were clueless as to how to sync a device and admitted they did not know what to do- some help line). Eventually I did a search online and found sync directions. So now The device is synced to the iPhone, but there is no data- no dashboard- nothing but a freakin advertising page! This is a total failure and a gimmick! Don't fall for it- it is just a way for Walgreens to try and sell more things to you and no actual data or true meter sync exists. What a crock! Walgreens, we expected better. If this was truly a serious app that really collected data, it might be worthwhile, but it is obvious that whom ever is in charge of this app and sync farce does not know a thing about really health-tech integration. Awful.
Devices are NOT compatible with Apple Health App
KBKowBoy on 6/27/2017
I strongly regret purchasing a Walgreens Blood Pressure Monitor. The device is only compatible with the Walgreens Connect App and does not allow my Apple Health App to sync the data. Also, the Walgreens App does not store the time of day for readings. Very Disappointing.
Pairing fixed
VkNaija on 6/23/2017
Pairing works perfectly now so they get 5 stars
Doc Ozone on 6/16/2017
POS, device not supported is the message I get when trying connect with new blood pressure monitor 930BT on iPhone 6 with the latest IOS. Called support number and received zip for help. They going to escalate to IT.
Still new
Rev280 on 6/13/2017
Only been using the cuff for a couple of weeks. Was close to bp in dr's office. Wish there was a way to get a print out of the readings. If there is a way I haven't found it yet. Very comfortable in taking the bp.
Not bad
tuppergranny on 6/11/2017
Only used twice, so far so good.
Great BP Tracker
Denisagale on 5/29/2017
I use the app with my Walgreens wrist blood pressure monitor. It makes it so easy to get Reward points and to keep an eye on my BP. The app is a little "glitchy" but it does what it's designed to do most of the time.
Love the app
Nan222 on 5/8/2017
Easy to use and very handy having it tracked and stored my phone. Love the ease of being able to provide the information to my doctor.
Get data
Tshortkc on 5/6/2017
I want to be able to get the data from the unit for my own charting app. This is not good.
Chef 1
Cheffie59 on 5/6/2017
Excellent keeps me in line well made and very user friendly
Really want to give 5 stars but needs fixes
hiccupd on 5/5/2017
I love Walgreens & the idea of this app, but it doesn't work correctly. First, even though there is a password save feature it doesn't actually save your password. Plus it doesn't ask for the login info on first access, it takes you to a temporary "no linked devices" landing page & kicks you back to login. Then, even though your device is linked to the app via Bluetooth & uploads most recent BP reading, you have to manually enter the BP in another area of the app to save it. Next, even though it offers to show you last 7 days of readings so you can chart them, it really only gives you 2. Good idea... needs work.
Draybs on 5/3/2017
Like I can chart right to my phone. Also really like the other health apps offered that I can earn even more bonus points.
Hit or Miss with IOS
Dalite02 on 4/26/2017
Easily pairs with iPhone 6S+ running current IOS, but does not reliably transmit data. Usually 5 to 10 minutes of repeated attempts may result in a successful transfer. Hardware is fine; app - not so much...
