What's New in Version 3.0.8
Attachments should work better for everybody!
Fixed several login bugs
Good service with unreliable app
I enjoy using FancyHands as a service, but there are several issues with the app.
1. Too many bugs/UX issues. I like the app's interface, but when I navigate through the app, it hangs at times and I have to restart it. Also, sometimes when I navigate I can't go back to the dashboard.
2. No multiattachment feature. Perhaps there should be a more even intuititive way to send photos, etc. to the potential VA. If, for instance, I want a VA to reconcile grocery receipts, I need to be able to send multiple photos in the same request.
3. Request feature on dashboard is odd and funky at times, similar to 1.
There are many issues that you guys can work on in the app. I like what you guys provide so far, and I like it that you're integrating many apps with FancyHands to have a more value-added experience, but the app itself would make it a lot better. Hope you take this review seriously 😊
This app will sour you on an otherwise awesome service
Besides the absolutely deplorable user interface, this app simply fails in terms of functionality. Task status often doesn't refresh with the only known solution being to clear the app's cache. Submitting tasks occasionally appears not to have worked resulting in duplicate task submission. No push notifications mean you need to manually check the app for updates. I've created a shortcut on my home screen to my dashboard and even though this requires me to log in every time, it's still more effective than using this highly unreliable app.
App Is junk!
I'm using an iPhone 6, am a premium subscriber (over $1,000/yr). The app looks pretty but loads slow. I cannot successfully add attachments from the app and voice attachments stall as well. I also cannot open attachments that assistants have attached to a task, which means that I have to wait until I get to a desktop PC to view the attachment. This is a step backwards. Very frustrating. They should have done more testing before releasing the latest app.
