What's New in Version 3.0.8
Attachments should work better for everybody!
Fixed several login bugs
No app updates?!
Photos never ever work. This app is a real disappointment.
Sells your data to advertisers
This app charges you $35 to sell your data to advertisers. So if you ask about booking a hotel in Miami you might get advertisements from Hilton.
If you don't value your privacy this is the app for you!
On top of this, the service is pretty poor. I switched to Pana because I realized most of my requests were travel related and Pana is much better and cheaper.
The company does describe that it is hawking your private data to anyone who will pay in its legalese, but that doesn't make their practice any less smarmy.
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.
