Buggy and inconsistent
For the last year, PaperlessPost has become progressively less usable. There are frustrations like having completely different features and functionality on each platform of their product (iPhone version can create cards and flyers, iPad version shows cards large enough to read, web version... well, who knows.) Even pricing of credits is slightly different. Then there are bugs, for instance text is editable, but you can’t actually see it while you’re editing and you can’t easily control where you’re editing. Then there are just dumb misses, like not being able to read or respond to messages from guests through the iPad app.
I switched to PaperlessPost because I had trouble with invitations I created on Evite before daylight savings time for events that took place after it. Evite changed the event start and end times — totally wrecked a kid’s birthday party. Trouble is, PaperlessPost takes forever to use because it’s so buggy.
Great concept, buggy app
I love the idea, and the invite designs are wonderful, but trying to use this app on an iPad pro is very frustrating. The editing tools are not very intuitive. When I attempt to edit text the keyboard covers the invite so I cannot see what I’m editing. There is also a lot of stalling and lagging as other reviewers have mentioned.
I also wish I could easily copy and paste my customized text into different invite designs. It’s not easy to test different designs, and a little frustrating to spend some time customizing one design, then realizing it’s not quite right, but having to start over in another design.
I would also like to be able to export my designs. I would pay for that, as the built in invite system isn’t going to suit my needs for my office party and I wanted to be able to just send the invite graphic through our office calendar. Maybe this IS an option? But I couldn’t find it.
Such a simple business so poorly executed
While Paperless Post has deserved plaudits for its designs and the simplicity of its services, it beggars belief that their website and app services are so uniquely poor. I had been struggling with the app on my iPad and iPhone so I asked friends who use the product frequently. They told me they had he same experience and to check the app reviews that further confirmed the poor UI, bugs and regular collapses of the app.
I had hoped to use the website, thinking that app coding can be tricky but websites UI is well established utility that any business should be able to apply. The website has so many bad links that I spend most of my time trying to remember where the faults are to avoid them rather than tracking my events. From “Dashboard” all of the “track event” buttons are misdirected to the home page. Most of the “view event” buttons are also bad links.
