What does this app do?
We have a new Sprouts in my area- I’ve just left from my fourth visit. The first time, I found out at the register that I would have paid less if I had downloaded the app. The second visit, I found out that I had downloaded the app and nothing I purchased applied to the discounts. The third time I deleted the app and was told that with Sprouts bags I would have received a discount and that the reason I didn’t get a discount last time was because I hadn’t created a list in the app. This fourth time I took the time out to scan every single item in my basket on the app, then proudly had them scan my barcode as I waited for the prices to tumble. Imagine my surprise when absolutely nothing changed. This time they told me that I had created a shopping list, rather than clipping coupons. Now I will need to go through the store’s inventory on my phone to clip coupons for the items that I may or may not want to buy, then walk through the store and go through the store’s inventory to find the items. What on Earth does this app actually do? Why would I follow through on this process? This is not the way I shop. Unfortunately for those of us without time to peruse the store’s inventory online, then battle through the tiny aisles to hunt for the bargains, it looks like we’re destined to overpay or go to the grocery stores with loyalty cards.
Found a couple bugs
I’m an employee of Spouts and every so often we’re given mobile coupons for free items. Normally after we clip the coupon and have received the item through check out the coupon is taken off of the app. Recently that has not been the case. The coupon remains in my list as of it hasn’t been used at all. The other bug I have discovered is again in the mobile coupon part of the app. When clicking at the bottom of the page to go to the next page it only refreshes the first page. I figured leaving a review was the easiest way to let you, the developers, know of these issues as I see that you’re fairly good at responding to those who have left a review. One suggestion I would make is that you include the location an item could be found within the store. It may seem like something redundant to include but the way Sprouts chooses where to stock some of their items is really quite out of place for most things and a lot of customers have difficulty finding stuff most of the time. It might be more trouble than it’s worth on your behalf but it’s just a suggestion.
Some QOL improvements needed
This app is ok - a HUGE improvement over what it was a year ago. Love that the coupons tell you if you’ve got the item on your shopping list or not, and that you can add the associated item to your list from the coupon screen. However there are still some things that aren’t super convenient. There’s no way to clear your whole shopping list at once. Each item has to be tapped individually, twice. Once to delete, and again to confirm the delete. That’s 50 taps to get rid of a 25 item shopping list from last time, just so I can start the new one. Just no. It’s enough to make me not want to use the list. As for making a shopping list, being forced to choose how many pounds I’m picking up of individual produce is irritating. Just give me a button to “add to list,” default it to 1 lb (with ability to change it if you want to) or qty 1. Basically as a user you want to have to touch an app as few times as possible to get your task done, and in this area they’ve missed the mark. A couple hundred taps just to make a shopping list is A LOT. I’m sure it’ll get better with future updates.
I LOVE how this app has evolved finally
First, the initial attempt to bring it up to -at least- a moderately working tool, now me being able to navigate from within coupons to “add items”, to my list, save for later, may we suggest... It’s become a mind reader in such a short time and a shining competitor among other stores’ apps! Mind you, it was high time, and you guys caught the train just in time. :) Sprouts deserved this application and I am loving my whole experience with it! Just wanted to write about my appreciation and thank you for all the hard work you put into it. Not out of necessity, but just my two cents if you are in search for extra features: A big chain supermarket has store map (for each store) that shows where you are in the store, where you move, and in which aisle the items of your cart are. That is a helpful tool when sometimes the customer visits a different store location other than his/her regular one.
Visual Design and Accessibility
I love what the sprouts app does, but I don’t I don’t really love how I have to get there. It’s a little difficult to navigate. Design really should be reconsidered. No drastic change to the concept, just maybe more easily discernible buttons and tabs. Also having to scroll to the right to get to the digital coupon button is slightly annoying. The side bar is a little strange because you could easily put all those options on the front. I would highly suggest if you did place all buttons on front for the option to be to scroll up and down not left to right. This is what most people are used to when using the most frequented apps like Facebook and instagram. Lastly, the handwritten-like font is not quick to read. I get the whole farmers market vibe, but for an app it needs to be something a little more simple to the eye. As far as use, it’s kind of awesome. I definitely find myself looking for and using new coupons and the hello savings offers. Never use the grocery list option though. Hope this helps. Best of luck.
Absolutely the BEST food store shopper app!
Loaded with shopping features that do not exist on other food store apps. The Shopping List is the best. You can keep your weekly routine food purchases stored there and Sprouts revises the price if its on or off sale- now that really works for any dedicated shopper. If so easy to search items, individually or in each department. This allows you to shop sections in the store and no exactly what is available and on sale. Super easy and amazingly cost efficient. No other food store app (conventional or healthy focused) offers these features This app clearly show Sprouts shoppers that the Sprouts coronation cares enough for their shoppers to provide them with a great shopping app. By the way - I was not paid or do I work for the company.
Lots of improvements
I feel like the app developers are really listening to its users. It’s much more effective and easier now to navigate through the weekly ads, and the “Home Store” feature no longer asks me what my preferred store is every time I revisit the app. Still not in love with every flavor of every everything listed one by one...it’d be great to have items with multiple flavors perhaps listed on a new page or pop-up window, if you were to click on that item, if that makes sense. Since I know absolutely zero about app development, that very well could sound ridiculous. Also...I usually don’t need to know how many pounds of anything I’m buying, so I wish I could avoid adding the quantity when populating the list. It’s a nice feature to have and I can see the value if you do need a specific quantity, but it just adds extra work to the task so I’d love to see it be optional. Still, great job! Thanks for listening to us.
Disgruntled about your App
I’ve tried emailing you guys so that I didn’t have to write this bad review but I can’t seem to get my point across with emails so let’s see if you take care of the app now. The save $10 promotion is not working properly. I had initially emailed you about the app not keeping track of my purchases so that I could use the $10 savings. I did receive a response and the issue was resolved; the app worked temporarily. Now my app always shows that I’ve earned a $10 credit which is great for me but not for Sprouts. I don’t spend $100 every time I shop at your store. I don’t believe you intended for me to be able to take $10 off every time I shop at Sprouts. Unlike before now the app is not resetting back to 0 after I use the credit that I’ve earned. I also sent an email about this issue on 10/8. On 10/16 I had to email asking for someone to respond to my email from the 8th. The response I received today, in short, says that the promotion is working correctly... so I guess I will continue to use my $10 credit.
Well, I can always ask the long-time help where things are so I don’t miss the isle #s. But I fail to get your app to run on my iPhone 7 while I am in your store so I work at home saving my list as screen shots. Please advise, thank you. Well, that didn’t happen. I can get my Albertsons app to work in your Lake Mead store, but even your staff say that the store’s Net works badly. Today I had an 11 dollar and change shopping list but could not show what to buy. Is your business that well off that you can keep it difficult to do 21st Century shopping?? But that was last year. Now: Well, I tapped on my shopping list and the program opened with Rate Us. Bad idea. But I’ll tell you what, just because organic food has less of a chance of poisoning us, it shouldn’t cost more especially since live customers buy more than sick or dead customers. Does that make sense?
Could be much better
Updating my review after the nice response from the developer. I’m hoping the shopping list portion of the app will be improved in updates to come. There are many things I like about the app and I look forward to the improvements. Original review: My biggest complaint is that the shopping list is very inconveniently designed. I wish it would allow me to only show checked items so that each time I visit the store I can uncheck once I pick up the items I need. As it is it shows me the entire list and I have to scroll back and forth constantly to find what I need. It’s time consuming and hard to follow when in the store. There aren’t sufficient organize/display options for the list so it can’t be used efficiently as my weekly shopping list. I hope updates will make it better!
This app should be what every grocer strives for
I would give this a million stars if i could. I love this app. It is a staple in my grocery runs. I can set my store, see what my store has in stock AND the pricing of it (sales included) without having to run around the store trying to find everything. It even lets you add the items you want to a list, so when you get to the store you have it ready and knowing how much you’re going to spend. The only improvement i would ask would be to add aisle locations to make it even faster. Thank you Sprouts
Ridiculous waste of time
Time consuming, difficult to navigate, frustrating, can’t find half the items I want and know are in the store. Took me 2 hours to make a list I can’t figure out how to use once I get to the store. This app desperately needs a tutorial that a user can refer back to every time the app is opened. Go to pay and nothing works so all that time was wasted. I could have made my little scrap paper list, driven to the store, picked up everything, checked out, put the purchases in my car, driven home, unloaded the car, and put everything away in less than half the time and with a ton less stress than attempting to utilize this app that everyone who works at my Sprouts store says I have to have. Definitely didn’t save me any money as my time and sanity are worth much more than 3 coupons (even if I could use them). The idea of this app is good - now make it user friendly.
This iteration has improved functionality and stability, thank goodness! One more improvement I would suggest is to fix the app asking me for my local store whenever I select my shopping list from the menu. Also, I would prefer to have the weekly ad in digital format by default so I can start adding items to my list more quickly, and the main sale categories should be available when scrolling through the sale pages, to make it quick to bypass things that I don’t use. An oddity that I would like to change is to take all of the boxed teas out of the bulk food section, too; it makes scrolling through that category very time consuming. Thank you for continued improvement of the app!
Better than nothing
This app initially was great. Realizing a great grocery store has an app is always a plus, and is definitely better than nothing. With this app, you have access to the ad, coupons, your own personal list, etc. However, this app does not have a feature where you can scan something and see if it has a special/coupon, and you must clip the coupon separately. If you’re trying to make a quick grocery run and just want to scan the things in your basket and scan your barcode, you’re out of luck. You must prepare beforehand by going through many coupons to see which you’d use, or just not get the deal on your items. Also, there is a bug where screens don’t pop up quickly and there is initially an error message.
Inconsistent and often incorrect
Frustrating and often incorrect. In many instances I can search for a product in the app while in the store and it is not found in the app even though I am clearly looking right at it! And the opposite is also true: the app will show a product as available but it is not in the store! Many times when checking with staff about these missing issues they will diligently search for me and find that the product was discontinued by their corporate office and doesn’t even have a possible location on the shelf. Would like to be able to create accurate shopping list based on products in the app, but can’t trust it. The store staff is excellent at assisting, but I feel like I am often sending them on wild goose chases! Coupon clipping is good, however.
