Bad. Really bad.
I hate to be negative but this is just awful. So unpolished and half baked. Did you have a designer of UX guy look over this before you pushed it to the app store? Many things are terribly off center, like the title bar horizontally and the member picture vertically. That stuff matters a lot, but even more important is the super sloppy interactions. When I open my home teaching assignments, it wont let me scroll up without having a seizure first. Then i look at my home teaching checkboxes, which, look like check boxes!!! Then I tap it and the row highlights as if its tapable, when it is not. So confusing.
This is just unacceptable work ladies and gents. There needs to be a full-time UX guy/girl guiding how everything feels and behaves and making sure this is a great user experience. With the resources the church has, this is simply shameful work.
Thanks for the effort! Hope to see it improve!
Love the new layout
I feel it is much easier to access certain features and that the entire feel of the app is more user-friendly. The only issue I have had however is that the app closes anytime I try to access birthday list under reports. I've even tried resetting device, but no luck. I was able to open it just once but then it began crashing as soon as I clicked on button.
Previous changes I made reverted back to with update
The latest changes I made in LCR reverted back to predate this update. I had synced before updating and my changes took hold but now I have to make the changes all over again. Also, I don't see a sync button with this latest update. Other than that I love LDS tools!
