Hobby Lobby Stores Review
Hobby Lobby is an app with which you can go further into the Hobby Lobby universe. You can check out weekly offers here, receive coupons and see where the nearest store to you.
You can download Hobby Lobby for iOS only.
Functionality — 3/5
Here we have Weekly Ad and Weekly Coupon buttons in the main menu. Those are the main things about this app. Then you have a Shop Online icon, and then you have options to go to Hobby Lobby's social media - Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram. Through this app you can contact HL customer service, sign up for their newsletter and leave feedback about the app. Also here you can find the nearest HL store and check your gift card balance.
Design — 4/5
Pretty nice, not annoying design. The colors though so typical - blue and white, you can see those in every app for some reason. They worked on their font so it doesn't look basic - nice cursive and size. In general, the app looks like a newspaper which is nice because you get the feeling that you're in the store.
Usability — 2/5
This isn't the only Hobby Lobby review that will tell you that this app doesn't make too much sense and isn't really necessary for you. A lot of people were upset that they can't shop with it. It'll send you to their website but everybody knows that it's much more convenient to do with an app. So from here, you can receive your weekly coupons for best deals and discounts at the shop. Some of them don't work on the website, and when you go to the store, the personnel might find the reason why you can't use them. Basically, it's like their newspaper but in your gadget and now you don't have to cut the coupon from it, it's always on your phone. We hope that they would stop making the newspaper in an actual paper to prevent unnecessary trees demolition.
Cross-platform use — 5/5
Honey Lobby app is compatible with iOS 8.0 or later. You can use it with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It looks the same on each platform - you got your main menu on the left side of the screen and the info pages will pop up from the right. If you click on the app Shop Online icon, you'll be redirected to Safari.
Shopping is the main reason for creating this app but it doesn't happen directly here. It'll send you to the website or you have to go to the physical store. You'll go to the website not only for purchases but just for browsing HL's goods because you can't do it in this app as well.
The Bottom Line
Maybe you thought that you want to download Hobby Lobby for more comfortable online shopping since it's usually the main point of any store's app but be aware that once you start using that feature, it'll forward you to the HL website. So the only thing you might want to install this app is to chase coupons and best deals faster and maybe also to keep your gift card balance at hands.Collapse
If you're a fan of Hobby Lobby or maybe your job's connected to arts you might want to go for this app. Common art lovers probably don't need it.
