Lack of features
The lack of features is the downfall of this app. I wish there was a way to create and send invoices through the app and see what invoices you have received as well. You have to sign in to the full Paypal website to create invoices and see which ones are paid or unpaid and create shipping labels. The website doesn't reconfigure to the mobile device screen, which makes it tedious to scroll through and complete the forms. I don't use a desktop computer often but when I have multiple orders I have to either use the website on my iPhone or wait until I can access a desktop. I sell online outside of eBay and my customers often get delayed invoices and shipments because of the time it takes me to process their orders. Adding the invoicing and shipping tools would make this app extremely useful.
Fast and easy
I find it so much easier to pay on the iPhone in the moment than to write a check. I pay my babysitter, my exercise class, my friends for group expenses. Plus the iPhone app makes it easier to send money without paying a fee-- sometimes the PayPal web app has so many options that it easy to accidentally pay a friend as if they were a merchant. iPhone version is simpler. I wish all the individuals I have to pay used Paypal. Best part is the transactions show up in mint-- unlike cash or checks without descriptions. Makes it easier to track expenses. Definitely a top 10 app for me.
I use Paypal often and think it's a great service, but unfortunately this app is unreliable and lacking key features, and I can't trust it when requesting payment from clients. Money requests that I made from the app did not teach clients and did not show up in my history on the website, yet there is also no feature to delete money requests in the app. Also, the "resend request" feature of this app unfortunately is not the same as the "remind" function on the website, and sends a brand new request (which I also cannot cancel) instead of just reminding the recipient to pay the original request.
These are some serious shortcomings for such a well established company for whom trust with people's money and financial information is of the utmost importance - but I've lost my trust.
