✓ It’s coming alongRegular updates actually do make improvements to ordering (really glad to see drinks ordered by type in the latest update instead of a ten page long menu of every drink in every size), and the CS team was responsive the one time I contacted them. The sheer scale of McDonald’s locations almost makes a single app a foolhardy idea, but this one works a lot of the time. When it does, it’s fantastic - I like being able to see what’s on a sandwich and specify no (or extra) of a topping, and the Deals are often really good. I also love being able to park in a curbside spot and wait with my radio and AC, rather than wait in the store or at the drive thru lane. The problem is the menu in the app, which appears to cover all markets and includes items my local stores don't offer. Sometimes it stops you before you place the order, and other times the order just errors out with no explanation. So be wary of ordering any items you wouldn't see on the store's displayed menu, like Sweet Chili or Szechuan dipping sauces, or the Oreo Frappe, which is in there even though my local stores act like it doesn't exist. (And come on, just make me a Mocha Frappe and sprinkle some Oreo crumbs from the Flurry station in it. It's not like the ice cream machine is working today anyway.).Version: 5.15
✓ Mrs R ReevesThe app is easy to use and very convenient however I can not seem to figure out how to delete or update payment methods. I had a card expire and need to update it but am unable to do so, I tried adding as a new payment method thinking it would override the one already saved but it did not. So I just added a completely different card. Also, one time when I ordered for a specific store it changed to a store that was closer to my location when I checked out, which was very inconvenient as it was located inside of Walmart and no drive thru or curb side was available. I had spoke to the manager and requested for the transaction to be reversed since it was not suppose to go there and was told I would have to come inside to do that. Yes, I got mad since I didn’t want it to that location in the first place and to top it off was told it could take several days for the refund to go through. It eventually was refunded and I have used the app since then but now I double check before I complete the transaction that it is for the store I am wanting it to be at. And, that is the only issue I have ever had when using the app..Version: 6.3.2
✓ Food for ThoughtI am not going to take blows at an app I have only used a small handful of times, so I don’t really have much feedback good or bad. I would, however, like to make a suggestion based on a recent experience I have had. I know most apps are location based, and it makes a lot of sense as to why. With how far along technology is coming, I feel like it would be an absolutely wonderful idea to incorporate the possibility of someone trying to purchase a meal for someone in an entirely different state. Especially with the new online dating world growing to be as popular as it is. I know there is risk to this, as there is risk that someone will order something ridiculous and just drive off. Perhaps offer a pre-paid reservation of some sort, allowing the app holder to pay on the spot and not block access based on location. I’m sure I am not the only person that would appreciate a feature like this. Anyways, thank you for taking the time to read this. I know it may sound a bit redundant or even mundane. It is just something I look forward to in the future..Version: 5.20.1
✓ App is great, store service is not the bestI like the app features. Especially now with COVID it is nice to be able to pay thru the app and not exchange cash or cards with an employee, one less point of contact. Being able to select food items at home I am able to casually get everyone’s order exactly as desired without feeling rushed at the drivethru speaker or deal with bad speaker communication. The app special deals are also nice. The problem I’ve experienced every time so far, about 10 visits using the app, every time I try to pickup my app order in the drive thru my local restaurant is unable to complete my order. They always tell me to pull in to curbside and change my pickup option in the app to curbside. I don’t know if this is an issue with employee training or if there is a problem with the app. I have not tried the drive thru pickup option at any location other than my local restaurant so I can’t say if the result would be different. The app is still great to have, just a minor annoyance to have this option not work. There are times when drive thru is empty but I still am not able to use that pickup option..Version: 6.7.1
✓ Very useful and well maintained except...I’ve had this app for about 3 years and it been helpful. There were some bugs at the beginning but that’s been fixed about about a year ago. This app does the things I need to do just fine. I always use the scannable coupons whenever I arrive at the restaurant they really help me out. Now the negative side of the app. I’m NOT a fan of mobile ordering, from my recent experience. When I tried it out, it worked just fine, the directions were easy to follow and payed for my food. But when I arrived at the restaurant my order didn’t exist. I showed them the order, location, online receipt, confirmation number, everything. The manager didn’t believe me that I can order on my phone and called it a scam. I couldn’t get my money back and just went home. I didn’t want to start a fight at a fast food restaurant for $7.41 (that embarrassing). I never used it again after that (mobile ordering). If you teach your employees the correct procedures and actually care how my money disappeared. I might give it a second try. But for now, I’ll stick with scanning barcodes..Version: 5.16
✓ Highly recommended if you’re indecisive like me!Just tried the app for the first time. I downloaded it earlier today to check out the deals I saw advertised on Facebook. It seemed awesome and looked simple. We had just eaten dinner so I didn’t plan to use it. 11:30 comes around and I’m craving something sweet and my husband wanted actual food. We got a Big Mac for $1.00 (it was an offer in the deals section)! That was amazing. Normally he just gets two McDoubles. I love the ability to customize without feeling like a burden. Checkout was easy. On the drive over I was looking to see how pickup worked. I saw that you could pick it up through the drive thru instead of making a worker walk out to you. It’s late the line wasn’t too bad. The window girl was nice. It was all around a surprisingly good experience. We go for late night apple pies quite often and are normally turned away due to it being late (meaning they aren’t making more), or we get them and they’re dried out and sticky. Tonight they were warm and presumably fresh and it was great. We will definitely use this again! It gives you the price as you go too. No surprises!.Version: 5.15
✓ Use to be better!I have used the McDonald’s app sence it first came out, I have loved it and would even drive out of my way some times to get to it even if I was not planning on going just to get something they had on the app for a really good deal but in the last several weeks they have changed things on the app to having a lot more Mobil pay coupons and a lot less good at restaurant coupons. And even the at restaurant coupons have not been real good ones, used to have ones like buy one any size frappe got one any size frappe free, and you could buy a small one and get a large one for free and now the new coupons are get a dollar off of a large frappe, wow that is a big difference in coupons! Also they are only offering 3 dollars off so much of a order on the mobile pay, I have used that coupon several times when they had it as a at restaurant coupon but they took it away. Don’t know if they were loosing money by having all those good coupons but I would look at my at restaurant coupons about every day and was eating a lot of McDonald’s but now that it has changed it don’t go near as often. Please add all the good at restaurant coupons back!!!!.Version: 5.14
✓ Cardit Card Failure In AppI don’t understand why McDonalds will spend millions of dollars creating an app and have absolutely no interest in a customer reporting issues with the app. Virtually every time I make a purchase, my card gets charged multiple times and still will not process the order. I have both Discover and AMEX cards affected the same way. In fact Discover said this is very common issue with the app but the fix is a McDonalds problem. I have reached out multiple time via the “contact us” to no productive results. Yes, I get a non monitored form email. Yes, they give a phone and case number. I have spent nearly an hour total on hold with no answer from their “busy staff”. One time I received a for your trouble gift card. All I had to do was call the non answered number to provide my address. The app and the deals brought me back into McDonalds, wonder why there is no interest in keeping coming back? I have tried to delete app and reload. But the cloud returns same flawed app. I have tried to delete the two cards and reload, but figure out how to do it..Version: 5.15
✓ (Updated)This app has come a long way and provides what you would expect from it. The deals are useful as well. My one-star off may be more of a problem with implementation on the restaurant level. The app doesn’t save a whole lot of time because you have to be next to the restaurant to check in anyway. I understand something could come up and prevent you from arriving to receive your order... but with the Starbucks App your order gets started right away (now that app has its own problems, half the time it can’t find the store I’m 2 blocks away from, but that’s another review). Because of this I find myself getting breakfast sandwiches at Starbucks more often even though I would prefer the fresh cracked eggs at McDonald’s. Maybe put a disclaimer box that people can confirm/check when they order that stipulates that if they are unable to pick up their order within 20 min it will be discarded with no refund offered. If you enter a busy McDonald’s nowadays it takes a whiiiile to get your food. Usually I’ll confirm that I’m at the restaurant on my app but then sit in my car for 10 min before going in -and sometimes end up waiting another 10 min anyway! Just can’t win. Maybe McDonald’s menu is just too big for them now..Version: 5.22.0
