Poor sign in experience
For some reason this app isn’t set up for shared web credentials. This allows apps to automatically suggest the correct password above the iOS keyboard. It’s convenient, but it’s also secure—it verifies the app is associated with the site and authorized to use that password. It’s so bizarre that a brand new Apple app wouldn’t use this feature introduced three years ago that I had to triple check I wasn’t falling for an elaborate phishing attempt. On top of this the sign in form works very poorly with password autofill—the password field disappears after you select the password, then you have to tap a button and fill it in again.
Once you’re past the sign in form, the app is well made and useful—a solid improvement over the previous iTunes Connect app. I do wish it offered access to a bit more—one thing in particular I’d love to see is my next payment date and amount.
Thank you for listening to feedback and adding the ability to copy a customer review’s text! Long press, copy, it’s great. It would be nice if you would also add Share into that popup menu, which would allow us to use action extensions to act on that text. For example I want to be able to send that text to my Siri Shortcuts to translate it.
A couple more things:
- The sales and proceeds data is not appearing for individual apps, but appears in the Trends tab
- It would be very nice to see stats for number of sessions
An improvement, but still lacking
This is a definite improvement over the old app, but it still makes odd choices that limit its usefulness. Why is Apple insistent I need to tap multiple times to see my sales?
I’m guessing 80% of developers use this app to check their sales first and foremost. That functionality is on a secondary tab... why?? Also what happened to text labels? Tell me I had 100 downloads yesterday, don’t show me a vague but pretty graph.
Being able to respond to reviews is great and I appreciate the functionality. I just wish Apple could nail the basic functionality of the app first.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
