Was useful
It took a little getting used to. The app does basic ordering and data sheets. I use it to order parts for hobby projects. I gave it three stars because the search function is hard to get used to. This app has gone through several major redesigns. This latest version is a big step in the wrong direction as far as ease-of-use is concerned. Additionally, when this new version rolled out, it messed up my account. And I can’t get it fixed.

An excellent parts browsing and ordering tool
Everything about my previous review (preserved below) has been wiped out in this latest update that seems to want to emulate a crappy mobile website instead of a full-featured GUI that worked great. Why oh why do people feel the need to "fix" what's not broken? I can't even login anymore. ---- Excellent user interface design makes it easy to navigate. Lots of info available about the parts, and the iOS version doesn't lose a lot of what's presented on the desktop version. In fact, it's better in one important respect: You can easily move stuff between shopping carts, It would be nice to more easily send data sheet PDFs to another app. I keep my data sheet collection in GoodReader, and there isn't any "Send To..." option for that app when I look at saved data sheets. Also, perhaps you could extract a more meaningful title from the data sheet PDF to display in the list of data sheets. Otherwise, the app is pretty much perfect and its quality has probably resulted in a few hundred dollars worth of extra parts orders on my part.

Needs price at quantity filter
This app is great, but one feature I’m really missing from the web interface is the ability to filter out all the products that have large MOQ. I often sort by unit price low to high, and it’s a huge pain to have all the low unit priced items get in the way due to their MOQ being in the thousands. Being able to view items as they are priced at a user-defined quantity (like 10 or 100) is really essential in the mobile app, and it already exists in the web interface. Thanks for the great work!

An actually great app
This is a delightful intuitive app to use that doesn’t feel like a re-branded web page. Thought and effort have gone into making it I even had a small problem with the app, wrote a review detailing the issue, and the devs fixed the problem! I wish all companies would be as thoughtful when making app versions of their web page

They’ve got almost everything
Digi-Key is a no-nonsense, rapid response one stop shop for electronic parts. They’ve got spec sheets too. What a fantastic resource, and there’s an app for that! I’m no stooge, just a happy customer!! I highly recommend Digi-Key; they’re much friendlier than Newark, too.

Used to be Great. Now Buggy and Awkward
This used to be a great app. Now it has been dumbed down to the point where it is painful for anybody whose primary purpose is to research and buy components. It also gives spurious error messages. With every update it keeps getting worse. It has significantly reduced the amount I buy from Digikey. My time is sufficiently valuable that I buy from whoever causes me the least pain. This shouldn’t be a race to the bottom.

Does the job
This app isn’t perfect but it’s worked well enough. There have been a few instances where items haven’t loaded their add to cart / quantity sections. Additionally searching for items is a bit clumsy and many categories are lost in misleading drop-down menus. That being said, DigiKey has never had the most stellar user experience design. So, I’m overall happy with the app.

Works well!
Updating my review: previously I’d mentioned that the earlier version was glitchy and the checkout process was confusing. The latest version improves things to the point that I’m happy to give this 4 stars now. All the iPhone 12 UI glitches are gone, and the ordering process is much improved - no more “did that actually go through” moments. Great response from the developers!

Very good app now that they added favorites
The app is very good especially now that you can add components to your favorites list. Before, you could only add to favorites on the full web site. Excellent improvement.

App is going downhill
After filling my cart and going to check out, I tried to login first only to see my cart cleared. Fortunately logging out restored my cart, but forced me to enter all my personal information again. Now, writing this review, I’m getting a white font on white background so I have no ideas how many typos there are. App was better 3 years ago.

Terrible app. Can’t sign in with prior info.
The app won’t let me sign in. I already had a account and customer number from Digi-Key. It repeatedly tells me wrong password when I can sign in with NO issues on the website. I hope they make this better because Digi-Key is my favorite parts store and the app is completely unusable.

Digi-Key is great. But the app, not so much
Crashes quite a bit. And so many errors keep popping up when I try to do things like edit shipping address or update cart qty. Digi-Key is great. Just wish they would put more thought into making their app more usable.

Tend to use other supplies only for their better apps
I’d prefer to use Digi-Key for purchases, but the app routinely fails or dead-ends. End up buying lesser quality components from mouser instead thanks to their much better app shopping interface.

Missing the BOM feature. Using the shopping cart instead (for now) maybe the shopping cart contents can be moved into a BOM.

How is this app so highly rated?! Digikey’s inventory is massive, and I know that because the search is so incredibly basic and lacks so many advanced functions it’s literally impossible to find what you’re looking for… at all. Good luck sifting through you 9,000+ search results on your iphone, 10 at a time. And if you want to modify your search? NOPE! Start over, friend. Does anyone at Digikey actually use their own app to find stuff? If they did, they’d see how useless it is.

Unable to do basic tasks
Ideally you would expect this app to allow you to monitor and submit orders. Neither is really possible. Doesn’t even support the iPhone notch, just to tell you how dated it is On top of that expedited shipping takes weeks.

App used to work
Well, it worked when I first downloaded it, but now the app is rife with errors. It appears to be utterly unable to browse products, review orders, or really do anything useful. Disappointing.

Login and feedback do not work
App redirects you to the Digi-Key website to login but it does not work. Pressing the feedback button also does nothing. Worthless garbage of an app.

This business gone in the gutter
Mouser clearly has the upper hand these days. Received wrong parts and a module with transistors ripped off is just....unacceptable. Especially on time sensitive projects.

What happened?
I’ve been using this app for years and in the last few updates things have gone 1st gen. YOU DON’T UPGRADE YOUR GRAPHICS INTERFACE AT THE COST OF LOSING YOUR MAIN FUNCTIONALITY. You can no longer sort or filter parts. What to find a new micro-B connector? Search “micro b” AND EVERY MICRO-B SEARCH RESULT IS PULLED UP WITH NO FILTERS OR CATEGORIES! WORTHLESS! To: Digi-Key Please stop screwing this up. We use your app every day. Now we can’t.
