            No Passport Support. Happy with card and app, but card cannot be added to use for Apple Pay. Passbook says: "issuer does not yet offer support for this
            card". I hope this changes - I would use the card more often. I use A
            Funds. Not sure what the others are talking about but my funds are immediately available when taken from my debt account.
            So far so good. I original obtained a Bluebird account during a walmart savings catcher promotion where if I redeemed my savings catcher dollars
            to the Bluebird card they doubled the amount. It definitely came in han
            Passbook compatibility would be nice. It would be better with Passbook comparability.
            Unable to setup recurring withdraw. Every time I try to set up a monthly withdraw(automatic) the app crashes. Otherwise I think it's a great app

            Great app and decent bank account!. The app is extremely useful. The check authorization could be a little better on the app but overall I like the app.
            Very easy to use. Very easy to use better than any banks app I have used.
            Great job. Great job American Express. The app was buggy and the newest version solved all the issues. I love the checks and the set-aside
            account. FDIC insurance is a big plus. Thanks for listening to your

            whole is a awesome value. Try to find a better deal in the prepaid car
            Natural - 26%
            Really Great where accepted. AMEX BB card is wonderful but not everyone will accept it, but it's ok, just keep a MC or Visa with you. I especially love the
            Amex cash back offers however, you guys need to add more popular one's in
            Updates PLEASE. Touch ID to login would be great. Why does it take 6 business days to add funds by check? Apple pay is a must. Cmon Amex get
            current please.
            Works sometime. It works sometime it won't let me submit the funds I want to add
            Could Offer More. I do like the benefits of the Bluebird account but there's some things that's missing--no Touch ID or passcode to unlock the app,
            no Apple Pay available although American Express offers Apple Pay, una
            App. Ever since I did the update the app will not even open?
            Kicks me out. I go to sign in and put in my password and it kicks me out a bunch if times before it accepts my password. And it dose this every
            time I go to sign in.
            To slow to add funds. I hate how long it takes to have funds available. Please speed up this process.
            Availability. The ability to add funds from bank account on the mobile app takes too long for funds to be available. 5 business days? That's too
            long. Also for log in it should have finger print scanner. Other then
            Still no Apple pay. :-(. Trying to find another card since this one don't work with Apple pay.
            Touch ID!?. Needs touch ID adds a level of security most would love and is already in the standard Amex mobile app. Would like to see quick
            balance feature adapted to a today view widget. Also needs apple pay!
            Add Touch ID Access?. Overall good app, just needs Touch ID access like it’s father, the American Express mobile app!
            Bypassing Security Question on IPhone 6. The security issue is still not resolved after many updates (rev.2 04/23/15). I've have checked all settings via my phone and
            computer but the security question is now being bypassed on the new IPhone
            Can't trust it to function. Sometimes it works just fine and then other times the '"Submit" button doesn't appear when I want to add funds. I've deleted and
            downloaded again as well as shutting off the phone. Nope. Still no subm
            Crashing. This is the 10th time that I've had to redownload this app. It will work fine for a few days then boom it just won't work anymore.
            This problem needs to be fixed because this is more annoying than hav
            What happened?. No problems using App until last update. Now will not allow me to enter though I have correct ID and password. So frustrating! I
            had to delete App and then add again 3 times in the last week So easy
            Still not fixed since last week's update!. This app is good when it's working, but it hasn't been working for a week now. There was an update sent out that makes the app
            crash when you sign in. C'mon, Amex- I would expect a quicker response to
            Make it better. The app works well when I have my phone on the charger when battery life drops to around 50 percent I can't get into the app I
            have to uninstall it to get it to work again so fix this issue the phone
            Log in. Every time i try to log in, it kicks me out of the application
            Log in just to shut me out!?!?. It was cool at first but, now I log in and I'm shut out completely (back to my folder screen). It's crazy weird. I'm deleting
            this app and maybe I'll try again when they (you) decide to fix this anno
            Logs out. Every time I log in it exits me out of the app it's happen to me about 20 times already so annoying -_-
            Redownload if crashing.. If the app keeps crashing on log in screen, delete and then download again. Worked for me.
            Needs Touch ID Support. App works ok on my 5s, but it would be great if Touch ID was supported with the app.
            Sad sad. It works great for about a day then it crashes at the load screen which forces me to delete and download again. Plz fix!
            Where are the Walmart bucks?!. This app will be worthy of a 4 or 5 star review when I am able to access my Walmart Bucks balance.
            Needs a few bugs worked out. Overall, I like the app. There are two things that need to be improved/fixed. First, I am unable to pay a bill from the app if I
            manually entered the payee. The only way I can pay them is to log onto
            Now that I can use this app again. How about adding Touch ID support instead of the ridiculous login used now.
            Crashes. Was able to add funds when getting the card, but as soon as I try to add funds by check, it crashes.EVERY time!
            Hate this update. What is the deal with these set aside pre set amounts? If I have less than 20 left in the set aside account how am I supposed to
            get it out?!? This is ridiculous
            App crashing. Every time you add fund by check it keeps crashing. This is annoying as you have to start over several times. Fix this and you
            will have 5 stars.
            Add Check feature not working. Once a picture is taken of the front of the check, the app exits. Tech Support said to uninstall and reinstall the app, but the
            problem still exists. Will rate app higher when this is fixed.
            yes or no: iOS 7?. i havent used the app since last year, when my son traveling in europe was unable to send me emergency cash due to the us being a
            lockdown country lately. hes back. i put the app on and i cant
            Unable to log in.. This looks like a great banking alternative, but when you try and log in, I get "error unable to load page" message. Come on AE
            fix the errors in the app.
            Crashes when trying to deposit check. App keeps crashing when trying to deposit a check. Will get 5 stars when this is fixed!
            iPhone 5 support?. I only use this app to check my balance and what has been spent and or waiting on verification when buying things, for that it
            seems to work. But badly needs support for the taller iPhone 5 screen, pl
            Awesome, but.. Optimize for iPhone 5! I hate the spaces.
            Getting better.. It works okay.patiently waiting for iPhone 5 support some bugs. Love the service!
            Need IPad version. App works, OK but need to roll out IPad version
            Cannot deposit check. The app closes when I take a picture of the back of the check that I am trying to deposit. Other than that key feature the app
            works okay.
            Mostly work. Except that every time i try to take a picture of a check, the app shuts off. i have a iphone 4s please fix. thanks
