Customer Reviews

  • Great app

    by Cssdarrow

    I love this app! I can refill a prescription with just a scan or quickly locate a store. The only thing to improve it would be a health info area so it would be readily accessible in an emergency

  • Swag

    Be well

  • Help with drugs

  • Great app

    by Aj 712

    Super helpful app, especially with prescriptions.

  • Super convenient

    by Happy Hapa

    Makes shopping there and refilling prescriptions a breeze. Thanks for the ease of use.

  • Great App

    by Tem57

    Great App, can do so much right from my phone. Love the simplicity of prescription refill by scan. So quick and easy.

  • Great app

    by Twdowdle

    This app saves a ton of time on the phone checking on prescriptions. The scanner makes refills a snap. I highly recommend it.

  • Easy Rx refills!

    by Collin Hinshaw

    Just scan and go! If it's not ready, you get a text. Simple easy to use, I bet my granny could use this.

  • Out of stock meds

    by Bunny216

    I love this app, as it is easier than calling and punching in all the numbers. Lately, Walgreens has been out of stick on some of my regular medications that in the past I've had no problems getting. I have addressed this problem with the pharmacy department just to get a huge runaround and without being notified of low stock, etc. It seems they rather outsource you to another pharmacy rather than address the problem, which I think is very strange. The meds in question aren't odd medications at all, but still no explanation as to why this problem is occurring. I'm going to take this up with their corporate office, as this is not acceptable especially every month is another medication on my list that they are all of a sudden out of stock on. Just putting in my 2 cents as I have never had this problem in the past, please make sure they have your meds before making the trip there to find out they don't have it!

  • Great app, but needs some fixing.

    by Bkprince524

    Only reason I am giving this app 3 stars is because every time I try to check my activity on my Rewards Card it is always unavailable. Also the app randomly crashes when I browse through the weekly sales. Please fix guys. This could be better.

  • Great

    Nice Application ...

  • Walgreens with ease!

    by Saysha Smith

    It's so ease to select pictures from my phone edit them & send them off to get printed. Can view ads & fill prescriptions! I love it!

  • Zot!

    by Goobersnapper

    Easy to use. Lots of useful features. Refill by scan is wonderful, but it often clicks in before I can get the camera placed correctly.

  • Most used app

    by musicluva84

    I use this app daily. It reminds when to take my 2 prescriptions. I also order refills using the barcode scanner. Just recently I started looking through the rest of the app and I have to say I am impressed.

  • Walgreens

    by DrJHWatson

    A really superior app of this category. The prescription refill by scanning a bar code on the script bottle is convenient and accurate. It is very forward looking.

  • THE App

    by NegativeMan

    It's the one app I'd choose if I could only choose one. Has never let me down, and refills and reminders are apple. They just work.

  • Nanny26

    by Nan2bknd

    I absolutely love the Walgreen app. I am saved time, no having to wait while scrip is filled. I can handle refill automatically. I get timely reminders and a "your prescription is ready" alert! I have grown accustomed to the great service. Thank you Walgreens.

  • Pics

    by Mon21111

    I don't like that I can't view my pics in a full view before ordering it like I was able to before. The pic is too small too view it

  • No good

    by Mike Sp.

    Won't focus to scan prescriptions on 4s

  • My Walgreens

    by TexasGrami

    Love my Walgreens, Staff are always nice, Pharmacy is awesome.

  • Great App!!

    by SSBG-FL

    Just the convenience that this app affords for re-ordering my prescriptions, by just using the camera, is great! I recommend it highly.

  • LOVE IT!!!

    by SginAK

    This app has been so hopeful and I haven't even used all aspects of it yet!!

  • Great and Convenient App


    I have been using this app for a couple of years now. The app gives me more flexibility with my time as far as physically going into the store. Instead of calling the pharmacy to refill my prescriptions, I can do it from my phone no matter where I am, i.e., work, a store, standing in line, a sports game, etc. Plus the added benefit of their photo processing center makes this the perfect one-stop shopping place. One of the most important benefits for me is that I have automatic access to my prescription history so that I don't have to carry the bulky containers around in case I have to show a medical professional...just look it up on the app. Great job Walgreens!!!!!

  • Patient

    by Wanda Matteson

    Love how fast and easy it is just to scan my perceptions and pick up next day and sometimes the same day. Very convenient and easy.

  • Everything you need in one app.

    by AymieNicole

    I love all the features of this app. I keep up with prescriptions, photo orders, view the sales ad and even download mobile coupons that go directly on my rewards account from anywhere! And if I need to do a return or have a transaction issue but can't find my receipt, this app shows the receipt number so that any issues can be resolved. It's the best store app I could ask for.

  • 5/5 for easy scan refills

    by Leetyz

  • Love it!

    by Marimedi

    Love this app, there is so Much I can do from a touch of a button.

  • Really useful app!

    by Knitwitgirly

    No complaints at all. I use this app weekly, sometimes more. Highly recommended to help monitor prescriptions, order pictures and more. A+

  • Latest Update Locks Up

    by TB37dfjsdfwsdfwsdf

    This app works well, when it works. For some reason, this latest update locks up at the "What's New" screen for me, even after deleting it and reinstalling it.

  • Great app

    by Kwalk78

    Great app for re-ordering prescriptions. Wouldn't be without it.

  • Wonderful!!

    by exoticeyez76

    I love it, so much easier and faster to scan my prescriptions than call them in.

  • Love Love Love

    by Eeerrerrrrrr

    I never have to worry about when my medications are ready! I scan and as soon as it's available for pick up I get my notification. If my mess are unavailable in store I receive a phone call. Not only does the app work but the customer advice is always unbelievable. Ive been an avid customer for eight years and won't go anywhere else!

  • Had this for years!!

    by Hart1976

    I love this app! Great for prescriptions and photos! Very rare to have any issues with it and it's usually my phone not the app anyway.

  • This is so handy.

    by Fifthdemn

    There is so much I can do with this app. I find new uses all the time.

  • Frustrating

    by Ceci1414

    I used to love this app. I used it a lot to print pics. Now, after the newest update, my app is totally frozen. I have deleted and reloaded it several times with no success.

  • Like

    by Cabomzt

    It's easy to use the application. I love the store, the service in the pharmacy is very slow but it's ok.

  • Convenient

    by Hoenisch11

    Love this app! Makes life so much easier!

  • What a great app

    by LilBlondie1967

    The Walgreens App makes refills so easy. One picture of the bar code on the bottle and your done. So much faster than hitting all those buttons on your phone.

  • Love app!

    by Bible fan99

    I especially like the photo feature and printing from my phone to store.

  • Fabulous

    by RevBC

    Use it all the time! It's great!

  • Use it!

    by Riptetoe

    I found this app at the corner of happy and healthy . Great for reminders and help filling prescriptions.

  • Great app be lost without it!

    by Sherrilynn1212

    I love having all my scripts in one place and being able to refill just by scanning a bottle. Just a great site with many features.

  • Makes things so Convenient

    by matthew gonzaga

    Saves so much time

  • Latest update makes app crash

    by Nika165

    I have been using this app for years and it always worked perfectly, until this last update. Now it won't even open on my iPhone 5.

  • Excellent

    by Lgh98t

    Easiest way to renew prescriptions! And the prescription history is also a very valuable tool.

  • Life Saver

    by Soco7911

    Have always liked my app but now I LOVE it. So few doctors visits up until now, but having my prescription history on my phone has been a life saver. Just pulled my app and handed the nurse the phone to copy down the meds. Done!

  • Great app!!!!

  • Easy to use

    by csktdlm1

    Well done easy to navigate

  • Time saver!

    by caser23

    Such a breeze for refills, both myself and family. And this app is so much more than refills: pill scheduler, weekly ad access (I don't get the paper) and more. My less-than-tech-savvy sister speeds through this app with no problems at all, so it is easy to use.

  • Pretty Crappy

    by HeyRj

    If you need to change your pharmacy look out! ...nothing but frustration. have never had an app crash like this app!!! It doesn't even recognize the second largest city in the US. The scanner itself works fine. I wouldn't use it for anything other then filling prescriptions, but last time I did I literally drove by four Walgreens before I got to the one that had my prescription! Pretty crappy!

  • Crashy Kathy

    by now4real

    This app will not stay open on 5S. What is that all about. Open immediately crashes. Close and reopen same thing. Thank god for safari and for passbook. Cuz I would really be over walgreens. And same thing happened on my iphone 5. As I said Crashy Kathy.

  • Great app

    by bmotz

    Really great and easy to use app. Highly recommended!

  • Using more than 1 Walgreens

    by Rudolfus Van Soest

    Trying to get meds at 2 walgreens is terrible and risky!...

  • Review

    by Desiree King

    It has been the best way to keep up with my meds. I love having all my info in one place.

  • Great

    by Vicki L Dunlap

    This the best website saves me so much time.

  • I've had this app for years!

    by Mrsjam96

    I really do love my Walgreens app. Scanning a refill is SO much easier than calling!!! I love it because when I'm in the store and shopping I have my rewards number with me! At the checkout I just get my phone out and blip they have my rewards card! I LOVE that I can order pictures that I took with my phone sooo easily! And they are ready in 1 hour!!! Thank you, Walgreens!

  • Fantastic

    by IlPaladin

    This app is solid and secure. It works well with the new os. It does more than refill prescriptions by scanning, but it lets you see your past records. Might be my favorite app.

  • Customer

    by Jimena88

    Love Walgreens 24/7. The App only adds to their consistent and reliable, friendly service. Try their Nice brand products. Top quality. Fun and cozy store. (-:

  • Wonderful

    by RandomFadaq33

    Love the scanner for Rx renewals! Great app which has Walgreens anytime you need them.

  • What happened !!!

    by Adell Young

    App worked great until new update 1/30. Now it freezes at the what's new screen.

  • Doesn't work

    by Gnomemom

    I downloaded the app. I got the pop up asking for permission to send push notifications. I hit no. I was on a screen that says "what's new" and I can't get off it. I can't click on anything else. I deleted the app and reinstalled it. Same thing. Absolutely useless. I would give it zero stars if I could.

  • Great app

    by DoctorB2011

    EnjoyAble SNF funchn Gherkin I. Jgvhl.

  • Miclouth

    by Miclouth

    Great ap for Pharmacy . I even opened this App at other local Pharmacies in this area 10966/19971 and they were very impressed and told me to call their Corp. Office. I love it. I like when they message you and let you know you have a script ready to fill but it would be nicer if they told you which med needs it. Other than that, it's the best. One other thing it would be nice to add is take a pic of a new script (like banks do with checks for deposit) have it ready and just give them the original script when picking up .

  • Convenient

    by cvoelker08

    The Walgreen's app is a quick, convenient way to refill a prescription! I've had excellent results every time.

  • Walgreens App is THE BOMB!

    by 04soni02

    Unfortunately, I have to take more than 9 mess a day, and refilling my prescriptions by simply SCANNING THE CODE ON THE BOTTLE is a Godsend!! It used to take nearly 20 minutes to do it all by phone, now it takes about 5 minutes!! Thank you Walgreens!!!!

  • Wonder nanay

    by Flip happy

    Tried to order prints on my IPad again, takes forever to upload pictures, very very frustrating. If I could give it the 1/2 star or no star, I would. A total waste of time. Please please fix your photo app. You are losing customers because of this.

  • Wallgreens App for iPhone

    by Patrick Fraher

    I use this app to refill my prescriptions and it is so friggin' easy. You can schedule your pick up times and days up to a week out. No more phone refills and listening to that boring greeting to punch in your refill numbers. Use the scanner that comes with the app. Takes about 10 seconds and your order is complete. BAM!

  • Excellent App

    by WaterfrontLife

    The features of this app, especially the Pharmacy section, caused me to switch all my prescriptions to Walgreens.

  • LOVE IT!!

    by JennyLokks

    wayyyy better than the cvs app this one actually prints my pictures fast nd they don't "lose" pictures.. Love it!!!

  • Best healthcare app available

    by tnespeca

    Best app available for clear communication about Meds, refills, vaccines, and all with a very friendly and easy to use format! Every Pharmacy should have something equivelant!

    They are really good

  • Unhappy

    by groovychick6480

    This app used to be very good ; you were able to make folders and store pictures over the phone. Now you can only look through the folders you have and pay for them to be printed that day. D: I can no longer clear out my phone when I'm somewhere and taking lots of pictures. :( Please, please; set it back the way it was !!! That was the best !!

  • Not happy

    by R@ndom girl

    Used to work great! However now it freezes when i open it. Deleted and downloaded it agin but still won't work. I needed to print pictures for a school project and was unable to do so. Hope the problem gets fixed soon.

  • Great App

    by sfraz7

    Being disabled, this App allows me the ability to fulfill my orders any time of the day for my caregiver to pick-up my meds.

    Great app

  • Works great

    by rhadkins2002

    I love being able to scan the barcode on my Rx to get it refilled. Also very handy to see my refill history.

  • Love it*****

    by Trina VanSiclen

    Would really b the best app out there 4 me if it would just keep track of the quantity remaining of my meds like it's supposed 2 do but 4 some reason doesn't. But 4 someone who has 2 take multiple meds everyday the reminder function is awesome!!! If they could fix that quantity part I'd have absolutely nothing bad 2 say!!!

  • Carol

    by Mrs, Bork

    Since the new upgrade, my app does not work at all! I used to use it all the time for refilling meds and ordering photos. Now it's dead! Help!

  • What happen?

    by Vap0725

    Now it's hard to even leave a review. I loved this app until yesterday. Now it's completely frozen. I've even deleted it and reloaded it. Why on earth would you mess with something that worked perfectly? I'm so disappointed. I hope they fix it and take it back to before.

  • App Excellence

    by Outdoorsish

    For all of the misguided companies that think a mobile app is a shrunken version of a website check this app out. Walgreens got it right.

  • Great app!

    by ApraxiaMom

    It would've received 5 stars from me if I could print the odd-sized photos (ie...4x4) from my phone.
