Ratings and Reviews
Poor first attempt
Doesn’t remember your login so have to enter username/password every time you use it. Doesn’t work with 1Password either.
Postcode search is utter rubbish- they obviously wanted to carry over the crappy website experience to this app. Doesn’t recognise postcodes I know for a fact are inside the zone. I think they must be using a postcode database from 1970.
Hardly any useful features- just tells you to go to the website so don’t bother with this app.
There is good reason for low ratings.
1 star as it is absolutely better than nothing......but not by much.
So you log in using your website credentials and pay the, (over inflated), charge. It matters not whether you select to save the receipt or not. The transaction does not show up on the web interface for you to download a VAT receipt.
It's because you didn't save it says the support lady, in fact I did but it doesn't matter as the website says, and I quote, "Details of ALL non-Auto Pay payments made through your account can be viewed here".
Then it takes 3 days to get emailed the receipt if you're lucky when you hit the contact us link.
If I didn't have to use the entire system I wouldn't.
Terrible plain, stunted first effort.
Hard to log in; no business account support
As previous reviews mention, if you navigate away from the app between entering the customer number and the password, the customer number is not retained.
It does not support business accounts.
I didn’t keep the app long enough to determine whether you have to log back in every time as others were complaining.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
