Walgreens is happy to announce that the latest version of the myEmerg iOS app (v1.1.4) has integrated both the Store Locator and Balance Rewards APIs!
It is always exciting to see a partner app integrate two API’s in a seamless manner and we are very happy with the customer experience that myEmerg delivers. The application has all sorts of neat features that make it fun to chat with your trusted health network so that you can get answers to health questions that matter to you!
The app includes features such as:
- Find the closest pharmacies, hospitals, urgent cares, vaccination places, gyms, spas, beauty salons, based on your location.
- Syncs with multiple data providers to get your personal health information in one, easy to read dashboard.
- Also, a unique feature allowing users to reach emergency services anywhere in the world!
- Finally, and of course our favorite feature :), is by importing your healthy activities you can start earning Walgreens Balance Rewards points and much more.

It’s that time of year again for us to head out to Palo Alto and take part in the annual Evan’s Data Developer Relations Conference! This year we will have our developer evangelist, Drew Schweinfurth, talk about "Creating enduring partnerships that inspire loyalty” during the Developer Bootcamp session on Sunday, March 20th.
Last year we had a great learning and teaching experience! Seeing all the developer evangelists and advocates helped us gain a better understanding of how each others programs operate. We look forward to the rewarding conversations we will be having at this years conference, where we will be digging down into the trenches of developer evangelism.
We plan to make two new announcements that we’re very proud of as we continue to grow our developer program. Please stay tuned either remotely or come hangout with us at the event!
The Walgreens API Team
Walgreens is very excited to announce that a long time partner, Roche has added their myriad of devices into our Balance Rewards API ecosystem.
With Roche’s Accu-Chek Connect application customers can connect compatible devices with their Walgreens Balance Rewards account and start earning points today! Access the full list of compatible devices on Roche’s website: https://www.accu-chek.com/microsites/connect/index.html
Roche has sold their devices through our stores for years and we think this integration builds on an amazing partnership. Their portal gives access to Accu-Chek Blood Glucose device readings which can be redeemed for Balance Rewards points via our Balance Rewards API.
"We are excited to announce the integration of Accu-Chek Connect System with the Walgreens Balance Rewards API," said Kimberly Ward, Group Marketing Manager, Regional Portfolio Development, Roche Diabetes Care. "People with diabetes want to stay on top of their disease. The Accu-Chek Connect meter and app help them understand how choices they make day to day can impact their test results. By linking this innovative solution with the Walgreens interface, Accu-Chek Connect users can actually be rewarded for something they do every day through their usual testing routine."

Walgreens is happy to welcome Swipe & Print, with a great user experience to the Walgreens family of innovative Photo Prints API integrations. You can get the application directly on the Apple App Store.
Swipe and Print, contains a unique user experience that allows for quickly picking the best photos on your phone and printing them at your local Walgreens or Duane Reade. With Swipe and Print you can flip through hundreds of photos in a "Tinder-like" fashion, and with a single tap upload them for printing.
"To print photos from my phone I wanted to combine an incredibly simple gesture, like swiping with an incredibly simple printing experience,” said John Brozena, Founder of UpStream Ideas. "The Walgreens Photo Prints API was the perfect choice for printing due to how simple they make it for users to complete their order without any friction."
