Works Great, but Very Expensive
The PayPal App, if I just had to grade it as a stanza line app on UX alone, is pretty decent. My only gripe with it is that confirming a payment 2 times is kind of annoying. Besides that, its super easy to use, super clean design. The main problem with PayPal is financial. Many of us look forward to the day when we never again have to handle those dirty sheets of paper that have passed through hundreds of grubby fingers; unfortunately PayPal's expense makes shifting money using cold had cash (or check, or other electronic means besides the widely adopted PayPal). Accepting PayPal is a burden on business. Its essentially a tax imposed by a highly powerful (but non governmental) authority. Imagine the government decided to tack on an additional 3% tax on all sales. Republicans and Tea Partiers would be rioting in the streets. Well, it's already happened, and it's one if the internet's most powerful corporations imposing this tax. I can understand fees like .1% or .2% for the services PayPal provides, but anything more than .5% is highway robbery (and they get away with charging the masses nearly 3%).
Good to bad... To bank Fraud
I used this app happily for a few weeks. Oh so happy. I can just click and pay from my phone? No way! I should have learned that this came at a dark price. I got a call from the bank about suspicious activity. I didn't want to blame PayPal, my good friend immediately but he seemed all the more suspicious when all of my attempts to login (PayPal app gives you both a password and pin option). So I start to freak out. I call my shifty friend PayPal. Her robotic mother tells me someone online has recently tried to change my passwords. This makes my heart race. I only use mobile. Finally a human answers. "Oh that's strange PayPal wouldn't do that she says" apologetically. Tears well up in my eyes. "AT least FACEBOOK had the guts to tell me a change to my password in email!" I sobbed while the operator stood silent. Long story short I distrust PayPal so much I'm having them mail my remaining balance to a PO box three counties away from me. They're like a bank, with walls were made out of wet toilet paper and their only teller is Bernard Madoff. I would send money to someone by stuffing cash in a bottle and throwing it into the ocean. I might end up losing less money.
App crashes-don't enable Touch ID
I have had wonderful success using paypal. It has made my small side job so much easier, being able to take all forms of payment from anywhere and anyone. This recent upgrade, however isn't working for me. It crashes as soon as I open the app. I uninstalled/reinstalled and as soon as I enabled Touch ID it quit again. So, after another uninstall/reinstall I didn't activate Touch ID and it's back to normal. Moral of the story...bugs are a normal part of the tech age we live in guys. Find a workaround and keep pushing forward...they'll patch it up.
