Not pleased
This app needs to be updated and become a better system for the had working people that can’t be at the office on time. I have so much trouble in sending documents when I have the pictures saved on to my phone. I can’t get my SAR forms or complete them on this app so what’s the concept of this app then. I’m still having trouble with submitting things on this app and the main office doesn’t check the app and cuts my benefits off with no reason given after I provide the prof in person, fax, email or even through the chain center they rip me off with half my benefits like it’s horrible and a waste of my time dealing with this app and it’s not my phone because iPhones is comparable to almost everything.

Good but change needs to be made
I really like the app but it does have one major problem that needs to be fixed ASAP because I can’t loose my benefits everytime there is a semi annual renew. The app doesn’t send you notifications when anything needs to be done. I check the app once a month or so and I’ve noticed that I never get notified when something like the semi annual renews come up. I have a very busy life and I’m never on my phone due to soon having 3 kids all under the age of 3 and it makes it difficult to actually take the time to go through anything on my phone. I’m late AGAIN turning in this semi annual renew form because I didn’t know it had to be done last time it was the same thing and I lost my benefits then had to reapply for them. I can’t keep reapplying due to lack of communication from the app and welfare office I literally depend on my benefits for my kids please fix this at least even doctors offices send you text notifications a few days before appointments to remind you, you have appointments coming up and it’s so helpful especially when I get so busy I forget. so why can’t my compass do something similar ? Please really look into adjusting this issue

App still not working
App has not worked in several weeks, possibly a couple months. I’ve tried uninstalling and installing again, turning on and off my phone, and yet, the app still has a pop-up error message telling me it’s not working. I can see basic information, but not anything about my EBT food/cash transactions or balance at all. Why the error? Developer sent me a message giving me instructions to fix, and I followed those directions but there is no change to the error. What gives? I’d like to be able to use this new version of the app - and was able to up until about a month ago - but it’s pretty useless now, unless I want to be given the same reminders over and over again (which can’t be cleared even though I’ve looked at them multiple times and tried to clear the notifications with no luck). Please help to fix my inability to use the app and I’ll change my review. Thanks.

Much safer and easier than paper applications!!! Trust me!!!
The ease of this app is great!!!!! Last time I did a renewal, I sent in my paper renewal application and apparently they never received it, we went to the dr and none of us had insurance. Now we are termed and have to apply again. We applied using the myCOMPASS app and it has been AMAZING, I can see it’s still in process or if I need to send in any documentation, and when we do I can just upload it right then and there from the app. Now there is no way for my application to get lost (I hope anyway 😬). I am def thankful for this app. Now I just hope we get coverage soon 😀

Frustratingly broken for SARS
This app has some useful features but is also a bit broken. Here is how: SARs can only be performed here (dates don’t match up with the website for when these essential renewals are due- at least for me. Not sure why.) Resources error: The app gives the SAR submitter an option to delete past resources. Most people would go to delete incorrect information. So you hit the delete buttons, and go to add your info. Unfortunately this triggers a massive error on the application where your resources (old and new) will be duplicated. Only the case worker can actually delete or change these. This section should be renamed to “Resources at previous submission” The solution for this is so easy- remove the user’s ability to delete these & rename the section. Next, there are mandatory questions. Unfortunately the app won’t tell you if you skipped one by accident, it makes everything optional, creating more work for the case managers who are already overloaded and the person receiving benefits, as well as possible denials & delays. Please- Make a reminder at submission that CLEARLY states “you missed a mandatory question in section (NAME of SECTION), do you want to submit?” At least if it says that one side of human error can be avoided.

Inconsistent with uploading documents
I was trying to complete my SARS application today and it’s required that you upload documents for that and I couldn’t get any uploaded because it would only take the first document photo I took. It say to stand over document and take a photo with decent lighting which I had and it kept saying “invalid” so then I tried to download them to my phone as a PDF, you can’t upload PDFs directly so I tried to take screenshots of my PDFs and it said “invalid” for those too. It’s inconsistent and that can be harmful and cause someone to lose their benefits. I uploaded the required documents on the website which I prefer because it’s reliable and easy to use however they don’t put the SARS application on the website, thus another obstacle in the application process. It’s incredibly stressful and frustrating

Some many issues
I want to love this app the idea and concept is excellent but the execution has so many issues. When you call into the office to ask a person for assistance then encourage you to use the app. I’m not an devise expert but I’m not completely newbie to technology either. It does not function well, too many clicks to get to the useful information, crashes or “unavailable at this time”, and the in the App Store it shows you that you can look up your benefits which I’ve never been able to figure out. It needs to be updated, more user friendly, and much easier to navigate. It is handy to upload documents when you figure out how to use that feature. Please iron out the wrinkles in this system if you want people to utilize this amazing concept.

Kept saying my password was wrong and locked me out of account
I’ve barely had any luck with this app…it always says my password is wrong when it’s not…so this time I decided to try and change my password. I answered my question correctly. Made a password that was in the parameters…when I hit change password it did nothing…I tried to sign in with the “new” password and like the old it said it was wrong. I did all this a few times and now it’s saying my account is locked and I have to make up a new account which is ridiculous. I made it so i don’t get mail and have the info thru the app and I’ve only been able to get in it the day I signed up. I shouldn’t have to make a new account. The account needs unlocked and you guys need to figure out why my password is never accepted

Very pleased
Technology has come a long way in the past 25yrs. The days of walking into the welfare office to drop off paperwork is now long gone. I’m able to upload any document that is asked of me without leaving the comfort of my home and or having to deal with traffic and people. I give this app a 5 STAR because it’s such an amazing app and can do so much more than we’d done 25yrs ago. Thank you!!

Better then going to the office
I like the app because it helps me to avoid going to the office ugh but. Hate that after I submit the documents that I have to call case worker to let him or her now that the documents were sent, shouldn’t it be an update for the case worker soon as documents sent. Now I have to wait ten days for my snap because my case worker wasn’t notified that I sent documents ridiculous. Update I uploaded documents on via website and the case workers are saying they didn’t receive my paystubs and bills this is crazy so they cut my stamps off. I sent the documents in the fifth of December. Someone not doing their job it’s stressing me when your doing what your suppose to do and nothing is getting done .

So far, So Good
My situation is sketchy to say the least. But this app has been helpful so far. It’s saving me trips on my break that are HIGHLY inconvenient during my workday. I’m not embarrassed about needing help. I’ve worked for the last constantly 24+ years and I have one child to raise. So my time is very valuable like all of ours. The only reason I’ve given this app 4 stars instead of 5 is because I’ve only used it once or twice. BUT, I’ve had absolutely NO PROBLEMS with it which has me wondering, could it be this easy? Again, I’ve had NO PROBLEMS so this may easily be a 5 star app. Fingers crossed!

I want to love this app. Before it was updated, I did. I had no trouble sending my information online. Now, I’ve been trying to do the SAR and the app keeps kicking me out or just won’t let me log in. It does not give me the option of doing the SAR even though when I click on my benefits, it says the SAR has to be done by 3/31. I get no emails of notices and I haven’t even received anything in the mail. I only found out that it needed done because the insurance company called to let me know. When I try to call, the local office doesn’t answer the phone and the 1-800 number tells me to use the app. They don’t want people coming into the local office, so what am I supposed to do? My son has epilepsy and we can not afford to be without his insurance.

Completely inaccessible
The fact that the state has funneled the SAR updates to either the app or paper is abhorrent. This app is barely functional & borderline ableist with how it functions. It consistently adds information you’ve deleted, it adds multiple pieces of information once you’ve deleted it, it stops working halfway through and makes you complete the forms in their entirety all over again, then to top it off, once you think you’ve gotten it done, it completely erases everything or tells you it can’t submit your info at this time. This app is detrimental to the process. The state should revoke whatever contract they have with whatever developer banged their head against a keyboard to put this on the App Store because this is one of the worst apps I’ve had the misfortune of having to deal with. You’d think an app that handles such sensitive information would be a bit more accessible and disability friendly…or even usable. But alas, it is not. Good luck filling out your SAR paperwork everyone, I highly suggest doing to hard copies because this app is useless.

Uploading info is always a problem
I’ve tried several times with different occasions to upload information that they need. I’ve had problems of the information not uploading like it should. The compass app freezes. When I go back on compass app, it says the info wasn’t uploaded. One of the times I’ve called in, the person said they’ve been having problems with the app for months, months!! So the whole time I’m thinking my info was uploaded correctly, and I was waiting for someone to call me to tell me the next step so I can get the help I need. Nope, nothing!! I got no phone call. So for that duration I could of got the help I need If the app worked correctly!

Great functionality - when you can access it
The app is great when you can access it and it is up and running. However, it seems like every time I try to log on, I receive a message stating my password is old and needs to be updated. And the process for doing so isn’t easy as the system can’t find my information in order to enter a new password, sometimes saying there is no account linked to my information (user ID, first and last name). I shouldn’t have to change the password practically every time I use the app.

Needs A lot of work
It’s better than the website at creating a new account but that’s about it. The app would greatly benefit if it had notifications sent to let you know when you receive documents in the app. The back buttons and menu buttons are super glitchy, the entire screen turns black and doesn’t return to the previous screen, only after a few tries. App would also benefit from saving your password or enabling Face ID to log in instead of constantly typing in your password everytime the glitchy app kicks you out.

Pretty useful/good app, BUT...
It’s a very good app and very useful but it could be checked into more by the creator of the app to make sure it’s running smoothly because there’s been many times the app would not update my information and times it would not let me change my password when I forgot it, so some routine maintenance would make it a 100% no problems whatsoever app. Other than that it’s VERY uselful and it saves you lots of gas money and time wasted going to the welfare office and waiting to be seen by someone.

Every time I send a message or change electronically I get a speedy response. The caseworkers are very thorough, professional and speedy in getting benefits processed. Very far reach from dropping apps off in the HBG office and the apps constantly getting lost. I’ve seen so many people in literal tears in that office who submitted their required apps and docs, including myself and just pushed to the side because of other human error! I hope that everyone has access to the online services and they have knowledge to complete it. If not, I hope a center will be opened for them. Thank you for all my benefits and services! Especially for the caseworkers in Johnstown, Pa who have really made these processes stress free!!

This app worked perfectly before updating it now that it’s updated I’m having issues with it. First of all it makes me verify with either and email, my ssn, or by answering my security question before being able to log in every single time. The big issue I’m having is that I can’t even add my ebt. Every time I try it tells me my login is incorrect when I’m typing it in correctly I know it’s correct because I can literally go to my phones browser and log in to the ebt website no problem. Really hope you guys get these glitches fixed soon.

Renewal Dates
This app has been very convenient for me and I'm glad it exists! My issues with it are that it doesn't really show your SNAP renewal date. The closer you get to the day your SNAP renews, the app just shows you the date for the following month, which is not helpful as the dates often change. Instead, there's just a small line with a dot, the dot being the day your SNAP renews. I wish this would be fixed as the SNAP renewal dates will change from month to month. It would be nice to be able to check your SNAP balance from the app.

Must use it if you have any questions just call the 1800 number for the department of human services they can walk you threw it.

App is a joke
Zero notifications for anything. Constantly locked out of the app where I have to keep creating new accounts. “Check here for automatic renewal” yet still have to fill out the paperwork every 6 months because the app doesn’t do as stated. Forgot your password, oops, create a new account. Even when I did get the app to work for me one time, it was a huge hassle as far as the office stating the app didn’t update them and the app saying it was updated, with no options for me to re-save the submitted paperwork. I ended up driving the paperwork into the office an hour away. Waste of time and huge headache 👏

Poor options for uploading docs.
Why is the only option for uploading documents a photo. Couldn’t you add the ability to upload files, scan, email, etc. Also it’s not always clear how to use, especially when trying to edit/change information. If trying to change a job situation, it only allows you to add, not edit or delete a job no longer at. And uploading more than one photo for insurance card was also weird.

SNAP needs work
Its nice that the state made the app more current and better visually but it's not fulfilling the needed purpose for SNAP. People need to know what their account balance is! Telling us when the next deposit will be and how much it will be for is fine but it's more important to know how much is currently available on the card. 🤦🏻‍♀️ It also wouldn't hurt to see the latest transactions to know what has been spent and where. This is available on other EBT apps. So let's catch up here PA

Easy to Navigate
Pretty easy to navigate it just gets frustrating if you don’t remember your password lol make sure you remember it and if you change your password give it 5 minutes until you try logging in with the new password and then everything is smooth sailing from there much easier than the booklets and you always have access to see what benefit you have!

It is very hard to submit documents on this app. I have to first scan them into notes, then export them to pages, then upload them to the app. When I hit save the app saves 1 of my 29 pages and then gives me an error stating the app is unavailable, try again later. Which leads me to try to email myself the documents as pdf from notes but my computer won’t open the images to save them and so I can’t upload them to the full website either.

No notifications
They don’t notify you if there’s any new info/requests so unless I check on a daily basis, I have no way of knowing they need anything. I lost my snap. One day I had it, I checked a week later, it was gone. They never said anything or told me why. The app as a whole is set up terribly, not user friendly, & you constantly have to start over & reapply under a new account number. That means there are thousands of unnecessary accounts in the system, just taking up space.

It’s convenient but a little limited. There needs to be space to add extra relevant information. Also when you wind up having to leave a job SOME employers are NOT going to willing to sign forms for the past employee. You should allow the report of a lost income and send the employer the form yourselves. They would be more compliant if the state asks for it.

So much easier than printing, copying, faxing, and mailing all the documents needed every 6 months, not to mention saving tons of paper. BUT the image capture for the documents can be a little buggy.

Fix the years old glitches please ?
Instead of sending people a 1800 number, would you have the courtesy to update your app and fix the numerous glitches persisting for years? If your app cannot process multiple uploads why the multi-page/document upload? You insert functionalities that are dysfunctional and interrupt the entire app, not to mention the message that system cannot find the file “Try again later “ pop up messages.

Actually Unusable
For months, I have been unable to use this app for anything. When trying to add my email, it tells me there was an error connecting to the servers. When I try to set up E-SAR, I am told I’ve been sent a temporary passcode- which I never receive. No amount of restarting, reinstalling, or using different networks fixes this. These issues occur on an iPhone 8 running iOS 16.7 which should be supported. There is no other way to complete the E-SAR other than this app that does not work.
