Bug fixes and improvements
Ratings and Reviews
This app is certainly easier to use on a phone than the website. It isn't as easy to use as the best apps but it gets the job done.
Having access to your account details is handy too ( I didn't know I had an outstanding fine!)
There is no facility to provide feedback to the developer so here is a bug:
- When you login you must enter your user ID or password using the keyboard otherwise the "Login button" doesn't activate. This is a problem if you use a password manager and want to paste in your password.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
