What's New in Version 5.28:
Schedules have been completely revamped! Quickly see who's on call for your team's (or any) schedules. Flip through the past to see who was on call, or head to the future to see who's going to be on call later. You can even book an override while you're there.
A similar list is also available in the user screen. Tap an on call there to immediately jump to that schedule at that time.
Thanks for all the great feedback! We’re always looking for ways to improve the app. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments.
Ratings and Reviews
Non-functional and non-intuitive
I manage a DevSecOps team that has need of a product that can manage alerting in a sane way. I was evaluating pager duty vs. some of the others out there, and a good mobile app is a large part of the decision.
The iPhone app doesn’t seem to even work for me on the iPhone X - I cannot make any changes to settings, switch screens - nothing.
On top of that, the app is not intuitive to use - it doesn’t function like any other iPhone app. If you have to have a user tip of the day for how to get to the menu, your UI may not be so great!
Nobody else on the team likes the app either, and anyone with an iPhone X has the same problems.
None of the other products in this space have a broken mobile app, and the ones I’ve used are intuitive and work extremely well - so it’s pretty easy for us to rule out pagerduty. Shame, because it’s an otherwise solid product - but the app is just critical in this space. First impressions are everything - the broken app means we will be putting our money elsewhere.
I am not one to give a one star review lightly... but it is clear that the mobile app isn’t taken as seriously as it should be. Until that changes, I can’t possibly recommend the product.

You have one job...
This app is just terrible especially in light of the cost of PagerDuty. It crashes often. Acknowledging a list of incidents (even just a couple, let alone like 20 when it's really needed) most of the time says that the operation failed and their team has been notified. But then maybe the op did complete anyway. Yet trash like "Take an OnCall selfie" get added. You've got one job, PagerDuty. Manage incident response. That's it. For $50/mon/user you can get that right. This is the first time I've reviewed an app; it's just so bad I had to. For shame.

Room for improvement
Generally it's doing what I want or to. When it comes to actions like Resolve, it could use an explicit confirmation or momentary Undo placeholder shown in the same list for a few seconds before truly going away.
