    Hello,

    I am starting to notice the app gap in some areas. I go to Costco - and do order stuff online. But their app is only for iOS and Android. I emailed them to ask about a WP version and they said they would pass it on to management which is business speak for GFY.

    The website is OK - but hard to see on a browser. Hoping an app would be laid out better.

    Supposedly for everyone one person that sends in an request, they assume 10 have the same question.

    Anyone else want to email them? Maybe something will happen? Make the WP experience a little better?

    You have to be a member:

    click the email us option

    Thanks,

    Mr. V

    This streamlines the whole process and can be the go to place for all WP users when they want to check who to "spam" next lol

    No, I think my post is being misunderstood.

    I am not asking people to join Costco. I should have said 'existing members' email here.

    In reality WP is a small user population, but possibly vocal. Costco is a N. American corporation and WP apps help this community.

    Blackberry is not represented either.

    Just hoping for a large NA corporation (who sells MS products) to reach out to another platform.

    I don't have a Costco membership, but I have a Sam's Club membership. I'd like to see a Sam's Club app (and a Walmart app, since Walmart owns Sam's Club).

    Since you don't need the app for offers or discounts to be applied, really what would the app offer over the browser? This is why I don't use this kinda app, well except Amazon but that's rare as the app really blows.

    I don't think ven07 was mistaking your post as asking people to sign up for Costco. He was saying check out our thread. Post the Costco link there and we will get users here to request your app.

    I've made a note of it already and will put it in queue.

    Hello Br1t,

    The browser site is small and hard to see. Apps usually have better views, keep me logged in and can allow personalization. I'd love it if they would let me see what items I have purchased in the past, or let me have grocery list, give me the gas price, select my location, and do my online purchasing. Some say I am a dreamer. Ah consumerism.

    You are right, the browser can this as well. I just find it a bit more tedious.

    I use the Ebay and Amazon apps as well. Easier to use than the browser view on a phone. And yes, they could update them a bit more...

    And, I would like to see WP a little more recognized ....

    I hear that, good points. Mostly why I've used the Amazon app in the past, except for browsing and discovery, I think this is where these retail apps fall down alot.

    We have only just started and are now busy with Snapchat and Epocrates.. Every app gets one week; within that week all of us that want to help will mail or sign a petition etc, but in the end it's up to those companies/developers whether or not they want to release an app. We can only show them that there is a certain demand
