  • If you have trouble connecting to your membership Dec 18, 2020

    By bfchris
    I had missed the deadline to renew, so as soon as I restarted my membership, I installed this app. When I tried to set up the app, it asked me to enter my membership number to “connect my membership with my AARP account.” That is confusing, as what would be the difference between my membership account and my membership? The app showed my membership as having expired, despite my logging in with the same credentials as on the web (where my membership was good and expiration was years in the future). SOLUTION: I followed the activation link in the renewal-success email ON my iPhone. (I had already followed that link on desktop, but that didn’t activate my account on the app.) That link in the email on my iPhone brought the app up directly (no side trip to Mobile Safari!) and instantly activated my account on the app. That’s actually very cool, as many developers don’t connect straight to their apps. Hopefully this helps others.

    Great fast friendly and easy way to connect to your AARP membership as well as much more beneficial topics, articles, discounts, and now points for active members. Keeps getting better in time! A+++

    It's worth joining AARP, the Consumer Cellular discount pays for our membership. I really haven't used the app, but, for whatever reason today the app made a Notification Sound. I went to SetUp to set it to Silent and noticed a whole row of "Fitness Tracker Connection" that needed to be set to Silent. WHY SO MANY "Fitness Tracker Connection"s??! What am I missing?

  • Wrong times for events listed under events Oct 26, 2020

    By Angel-o-baby
    I just downloaded the app and all the events are basically listed in the middle of the night. Just thought you might want to fix that. Also when I clicked on “get tickets,” nothing happens. Hope to see this stuff fixed, so that the app becomes more useable. Thank you!

    I decided to get the 5 year renewal @$9per year. I've been a member since 2011. I did it on my tablet by myself. It was so much easier. Doing it online made it better for me. So much information is available and even more perks. So much more News, Events and discounts.

  • Stepping backwards Nov 11, 2020

    By Duboislaker
    I used the old app to read the magazine and newsletter. I downloaded the new app and see that it’s only available in portrait mode and is really a phone app, not an iPad app. I read reviews that are well over a year old and saw the same complaints I’m writing here. Developer responses said (back then) that they are always looking for ways to improve their app. Clearly no one on the developer’s team is actually listening because nothing has changed. AARP, as your members become more tech savvy and have greater expectations of tech products, why do you continue to ignore us? Don’t bother responding to this review with the same old “thank you for your opinion, we are always looking to improve our product.” No, you’re not. By the time you read this I’ll have already deleted your app. I’ll check back yearly from this date to see if you finally truly have listened to us and have improved your app.

  • I’m Really Tired of Tilting My Head! Jun 14, 2019

    By ND Fan4Life
    When I searched for the App and saw one for an iPad, I happily downloaded it. I figured, like many of the Apps, it would just ‘accommodate’ to whichever position in which the iPad was being used. I, like many, have a keyboard attached to my iPad. It’s very inconvenient, as well as uncomfortable to attempt to position my iPad for viewing in the portrait position while everything is in the landscape position! Please! These reviews read as if many others have the same issue that I do! Please upgrade your App to be able to be used either in portrait OR landscape modes! If you do, I’d give you a 5.0, just for the relief of my neck and shoulder pain from trying to work with this App in portrait mode!

    I enjoy being a member of AARP. But this app is awful. I have not been able to use it for weeks; all I get is a spinning circle. I have tried deleting and then re-intalling it to no effect. Please fix! Thank you.

    The AARP doesn't work half the time -- always errors. Can't share articles with ANYONE, including my wife who is a member. It's useless!
  • Terrible app for such a big org Dec 5, 2020

    By cheme75
    Absolutely the worst app I have for any org. It’s not even optimized for iPads so you get a tiny phone sized screen in the middle of a big black, wasted screen. Your are then limited to the few icons at the bottom to navigate the few things Aarp allows. There is no linkage to the Medicare advantage plan, not sure I’ve found how to get into staying sharp. It’s an abysmal app that they dumbed down way too much, I guess they think seniors are too to be able to a full featured app. This is really sad. If not for the Medicare advantage plan I’d probably cancel my Aarp membership. I really get very little from it because it is so user unfriendly.

  • App doesn’t show spouse as secondary member Nov 3, 2020

    By C101481
    I can’t rate it because I just downloaded the app today. But there are a few differences from the website you might fix. The app profile doesn’t show my spouse as secondary member even though the .org website does. The app also doesn’t show auto renewal but the website does. I don’t see a way to give feedback about the app except in this review. You might add app feedback in the contacts section.

    The way things were was priceless. But I start to like my membership. Seem impressive because the discounts and assistance on the road you can get. Enough for a 5 starts rating but I still need to use the membership to give my final score. If things goes as expected with the service then i will change my final score to 5 the perfect 5 out of 5 just like gymnastic Nadia Commanechi from Rumany who got first and only perfect score on the Olympics. And I may start dating someone like that Nadia.

  • Sharing ability? Jan 19, 2021

    I like the app and I enjoy the articles but it would be nice to have a way to share them.

    I am having difficulty downloading to register the app. My membership is good through Sept 10 th . I need this resolved before my trip as you cannot seen me a replacement card to use in time for my trip . I have never used this card for any discounts but does not seem user friendly when I do want to use it

    I renewed my membership on January 19th. My fee was paid but the free prize for renewal has not came yet. When can I expect it. Hoping to hear soon.
  • App does not work properly for games Oct 6, 2020

    By Kelela55
    This app was working fine on my iPad and iPhone until about 3 weeks ago. Now every time I try to sign into games I receive a “No response -serialization error. Data not in correct format”. I’ve changed my password and it will work maybe once and then it will go back to error message. I’ve had to go back to signing into website which defeats the purpose of having any app.

  • AARP benefits Mar 2, 2021

    By tovka8000
    Just downloaded the app. Am going to delete. My primary purpose in getting the app was so that I could quickly access restaurants in my area that offered a discount. Each of the whopping two are listed separately. This would not be so bad BUT you have to scroll thru a multitude of other individual offers for health, travel etc.
