Ratings and Reviews
Major bug fixed!
Most of the reviews on here give a low rating because of a bug that prevented them from entering their country of residence. That clearly has been fixed as I used it with no problem. Figured somebody should point this out to ensure people don’t bypass this app for incorrect or outdated review information. (Side note - Apple should really eliminate reviews that are no longer pertinent. )
So far the app works totally fine.
Can’t choose a place of residence outside Canada.
The app has a bug. When setting up the traveler profile, it does not allow you to select a place outside of Canada as your place of residence. The names of other countries appear for about 1/2 second, but then it switches to a list that only show the Canadian provinces an territories. This is no good for anybody who lives outside Canada.
This happens regardless of whether you list yourself as being a Canadian citizen/Permanent Resident or not.
This bug needs to be fixed.
Speeds up customs - although need Cannabis update
Hi, we forgot our nexus cards and this app did speed things up. However it seems that there is a new question related to cannabis that needs to be added to the app (as the kiosk said it was missing).
