The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Launchpad helps Veterans and their
Caregivers find and use VA apps. The VA Launchpad organizes VA apps and
capabilities to help you more easily find the tools VA has made available for
you. Links to new apps automatically appear in the VA Launchpad...
Worst Kind of Link App
This is not a secure, single sign on application as it is advertised to be. This is a menu of hyperlinks to webpages that launch in a browser. Even for applications that have an actual app, like VA Video Connect, this app opens the browser even if you have the VA Video Connect app installed on your phone. The most heavily used bit of VAs online tools, Secure Messaging, is still only available as a webpage via a browser which is impossible to read/use on a phone. I want a secure messaging app with notifications on my phone! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS APP!
Not that great
I was ex something a bit more direct rather than using my browser all the time and logging into the VA health portal. This app is just an extra step. If you want to contact your health care team it will send you to the VA portal on the web browser. Want to refill an rx, send a secure message? Same thing. Skip this step if you like and use your browser.
So you want me to give you access to all of my phones health data and then make it convoluted to access the health record in the VA system? This sounds lackluster at best. I then sorted the reviews, the top reviews are likely fake and are from the user fffggggkkkiii or some bs like that. The other reviews are creative names. I’m gonna go out on a limb and just say the top reviews are “fake news.” Something tells me I won’t be wasting my time and deleting this app
Check your addition, VA. Your numbers seem padded
All that I see of the reviews is one writer who says he/she expected more than just another step to communicate (3 stars) — still have to use a web browser (paraphrased). The rest of the accessible reviews basically all say, don’t use this app!!! So. What did I do? I did the math. The Veterans all say: 3, 1, 1, 1,1 ...., which is much less than 3 stars, let alone 2+ I simply uninstalled the app and didn’t even open it.
Not really an app
Terrible. This isn’t an app. It’s a collection of links to various VA sites, many of them not yet working . It’s a perfect example of a bureaucrat saying “We need an app now to show that we’re modern,” with no idea of what an app actually is and without the expertise or budget to execute it. As in real life, whenever you try to retrieve anything from the VA, you’re just redirected until you reach the inevitable dead end. Don’t waste your time.
Just a fancy bookmark app
Your browser has a built in feature that allows you to bookmark pages. This app is pointless....It’s not even really an app. You would think with how much money the VA receives, they could design an actual app. Then again, the app is kinda like the VA... you go to get an answer and someone redirects you to someone else. This “app” simply redirects you to a website and you have to continually login/authenticate.
Clunky, only tells you what other apps to download
This is a table of contents app to download all the other available va apps. Really unessecar and waste of time. It’s also confusing which app to choose while in the App Store, not realizing, for example, that if you want a scheduling app, you will end up downloading two apps.
Useless waste of time
Piece of useless crap. Nothing but links to the website and in some cases 404 not found pages. Not to mention that it’s bloated with crap I will never use. I was hoping for a secure app to refill my prescriptions, check on appointments and use secure messaging. Absolute waste of time, phone storage and memory.
One Star is too generous
Was hoping to refill prescriptions. This app does very little of its description. After spending 30 minutes here the only thing I am left with is: How can I delete this app and insure it has protected my healthEvet logon data. If the sites security is as good as the app itself I’m very afraid.
Waste of time
Not of any real value. The main thing I want is secure messaging and it doesn’t show up. Just use your web browser. Sure would be nice if the gov’t actually asked the users what they would like in this app.
The wed site is very slow and the response to your requests are really delayed it used to work good Jim tighe
Not ready for prime time, yet
I have been learning about the app on my iPhone but it is hard to read,so I launched it here on my iPad. I want to look up my prescription status. The prescription app is not available. This is the case for most of the apps. The good news The layout is nice everything is easy to see and read however the app is just a shell today, ie a work in progress. I will check back in with the app this winter and see how progress is going.
As a veteran and a web developer, I’m disgusted in this. Why is it so hard to use our benefits? Login to the site takes like 3 steps, is faulty, links don't work, it's total garbage. This is exactly why the VA has such a bad rap, amongst a laundry list of other things.
An app with just links to other apps. Wish I could request services with my team as I can’t get a hold of them and have to go in person to get anything done.
Waste of time
For me, there’s nothing different from going to the myhealthevet website, because everything is redirected there. Sad, uninstalling.
