The Facts

This app has never been that good, but it was simple and it worked, spooled the print very quickly so it was ok. Not with this update, I can see what Brother were trying to do but it's totally ruined the user interface, even losing standard shipping labels such as "Fragile" Basically you now have a tiny text box above your keyboard only showing 3 lines of text, it's hard to move the curser or select text to edit it, and because this time you are editing the text box the label does not auto update (the label fills 50% of the screen, which it used to occupy 60%) so is completely pointless, just give us a label on screen we can edit how we wish, also you have increased the print button from one step to two?!? Nice how after pressing print it gives you a print qty before you proceed but what would have been better is an auto print que, so if we tapped print 4 times then we would get 4 copies rather than a "printer busy" error because the app was faster than the printer (which is perfect) instead you have slowed the app offering options instead of a smoother shorter process. I'm about to re-install the previous app from my backup as this is rubbish.

Good little app with my PT-E550W and QL-820NWB Label Printer

Love the way I can create labels on the fly but I would like it to support Cloud files (iCloud, Dropbox etc.) so I can easily access labels I've created on my PC with the P-touch editor.

However, it does has a couple of bugs I’ve noticed. If I print more than one label and then decide I want to print just one more from the same screen, I select print and the drop down will show 1 label to print, if I then tap on print it will print the previous number of labels I selected. Very annoying if previously I’d select to print 100. If I tap on the + sign the 1 displayed will start increasing from the previous print value, so in my example 101. The only way to stop it doing this is to tap the - or + signs first.

The other bug is that it doesn’t give me the option to select the country from my contacts list when creating an international address label. I have to go in and add this manually.

Dreadful back to the 1980's app

I used to happily print labels to my QL-710W and PT-E550WVP printers using the old app. It wasn't perfect but did the job with little fuss and was pretty easy to understand.

Roll forward to the 'new improved app' and what a complete cludge-up this is. Most of the time it doesn't automatically find my printer or recognise what label stock is loaded, so I have to go in and search and then tell it to check the label stock. Sometimes it just sits there with 'printing' in the middle of the screen, yet nothing comes out of the printer.

The interface and editor is just dire and looks like something out of the 1980's. Manually entering and editing text is awkward and resizing a text box is hit and miss. I haven't risked doing anything fancy like adding graphics, but if entering text is this difficult I don't think I'll bother.

This app has now slowed down my workflow so much I'm hunting around for a better app.

PLEASE roll this update back to the old working version, kick out the developers and work on something your customers want and need.
