Missed Opportunity

The one big thing this app lacks is a members area and the possibility to store your membership card in the Apple wallet. If it had that it would be a great app. As it is you still have to stuff your physical wallet with another card just in case you visit an HES site on spec.

Won’t rotate out of portrait, all text is displayed in a huge font. All feels rather clumsy
