Fixed several login bugs
One Of The Worst Apps Ever
The FancyHands service is...okay. Not great, but average. Their app, however, has been awful since I joined the service years ago.
The fields for the task title and subject or so messed up, that when you type them you can’t tell one from the other. It doesn’t have spellcheck. And, the links to upload photos are broken. Likewise, the option to upload an audio file doesn’t work.
Most recently, it won’t let me login via my Gmail account, which is the only method that I have to log into the account.
If you want to consider the service, you may find it worth a shot. If you are considering the app to support your decision, don’t bother.
The app is, quite frankly, worthless or near worthless.
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 😊
Can’t even login anymore.
Unfortunately, with the latest version, I can’t even log into my account anymore. Getting the following error,
