User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
The app is convenient when it works. I say that because so often I go through the pains of buying online and I get to the end and get an error. This happens frequently. I resubmit, start over , etc. same stupid error message. And there is no one to call and ask for assistance. I keep the app current on my iPhone. The next day it may or may not work again. I also think going through the menu is slow and clumsy. I also try to get my order straight in advance so when I am ready and I hit the purchase button I know it will be fresh. This is typically the time I am hurried and do not want to step through the menu. But I still want Subway Fresh, right. But today something changed and when I went back to my order to submit payment it appeared to be missing. So I ordered all over again and then noticed I had two subs in the queue. So I had to figure out how to cancel one of them. My order changed slightly and I couldn’t tell which one I was canceling. So what is my reward for continuing to use the app and buy from Subway. There is none. No rewards for buying your subs 3-4 days a week. No extra discounts. No buy 4 get the 5th free. Nada. And I don’t expect anyone will respond to my input. So Surprise me, Subway.
i’ve used this app for a very long time and I always run into problems when ordering. Right now the app is saying I have rewards that have expired and that I need to click manage settings or something when I don’t have any rewards on there so the option to manage them won’t even pop up now I wanted to get food before I go to work and I’m not able to do that because it’s not able to process my order without me removing something that can’t be removed. It should have an automatic reset if there’s no rewards, instead of making you manually remove them, the system takes it off for you it’s ridiculous how many times I’ve had to go through this also I hate how if I accidentally click a different link it’ll have to restart the whole page with the logo in the white background (ex: accidentally pressing the map link on the app and having to wait for the previous page to reload when it should not be that complicated) I love subway really but this app is just terrible and needs tons of work.
I'm not one to write reviews but This is getting old... This app is still terrible even after the updates. Twice now I have attempted to order and it says "something went wrong please erase your cart and try again" or something like that. One time I completely gave up and went somewhere else only to get a call asking if I was coming to pick it up. The staff was nice enough to keep it on record as an I owe you and redeemed that later. Another time I tried a second time to get the order to go through as the directions stated and when I went in to just order it the normal way they stated the order went through twice and one ticket had 3 meals ordered. I only told it to order one meal a time.. Get this SH@$ working already.. This is going on over a year for Subway having an epic failure of an app. Keep saying they fixed it with every update... Do you even use our test the app? Someone isn't doing there job right. I'd feel pretty miserable if I was in charge of application development! Hope they're getting paid well for nothing! Almost every other food ordering app from other places has a 4 plus most over 4.5 plus rating... I think it's time you take a look at how they are doing it. Maybe throw up the white flag and call for help.. You literally have nothing to lose. Rant over.
Updated: heard back before I had to go through my credit card company and they are refunding the purchase. Still hesitant to trust the hours in the app going forward though Ordered a sandwich through the app for a restaurant that was supposed to be open until midnight (according to the app), received my confirmation email, arrived at the store at 10:55 and it was very clearly closed (with hours posted as open until 11:30pm). Couldn’t cancel the order since the only way to do that is by calling the restaurant who obviously didn’t pick up. Only customer service contact is a form, so filled it out explaining what had occurred and asking for confirmation I wouldn’t be charged. Four days later my credit card has been charged and I have no response from customer service, looks like I’m going to have to deal with this through my credit card company. Clearly deleting the app as it defeats the purpose of ordering ahead if the restaurant might not even be open and they charge you for food you don’t receive
EDIT: the app does now allow me to order a sandwich. So that’s an improvement. Everything else below is still bad though. Added one star back. Favorites are impossible to manage and weirdly include the restaurant so you need multiple favorites for the same sandwich if you live and work in two different places or if you are traveling, you can’t use your favorites. Selection of location is cryptic and often results in being stuck unable to add food to purchase. Can’t change restaurant after picking food. Why can’t I choose to use my points as a payment method?! This update has actually made it impossible to order anything. Error every single time I have tried the last couple days. So many opportunities to do better it’s impossible to list them all. Whoever you all got to rewrite this a few months ago should be fired and possibly subjected to the game of thrones walk of shame. Worst implementation of a simple storefront I can imagine. Seriously, I just want to order a sammich and have it ready when I arrive. The app used to do that amazingly well.
