The app is called RxLocal and it allows independent pharmacies to have an app for their customers. The app only has a fairly average rating on both the Google and Apple stores of 3.3 and 3.4 out of five. People have some issues with the limited functions available with the app and this seems to be the main reason for the average ratings.
