Ratings and Reviews
Wonderfully convenient and hassle-free
Before this app, I used to send money to Guatemala using the western union website. Most of the time, my bank declined the charge. I’d have to call them up and tell them it was OK, and then try again. With this app, the transaction ALWAYS goes through the first time without hassle. Maybe because I use Touch ID with this app, the bank trusts the transaction. As to the rest of the app, it remembers everything, making it easy to repeat transactions. Using ApplePay is great, too. The app is reliable and solid, never glitches, and is a joy to use. Great job!
I have one suggestion: I love the fact that I can share the receipt with the recipient so they have the MCN number. One problem: it writes the email in English, though I’m sending to Guatemala. Please add the ability to choose the language of the shared receipts. Basing it on the system language or keyboard language is not good enough. English is my first language, and my phone is setup up accordingly. But, it’s not the language that I use with the recipient.

No opinion of the app
Western Union. When you hand them your money to send, better filled out the information correctly. Otherwise, you will get the runaround. One time I filled out the form to send the money, I have asked the clerk if I needed to include the middle initial of the recipient and she said no. No need to guess. I went back to that branch and they can not do anything about it. Call head quarter in the state of Colorado. Today I went to receive the money and one of the branch didn't have $830. So I go to a different branch. They asked me where I was born on all different branch. But when you filled out the form to send money, not all branch would check your information carefully when they input your information. Different branch different authorized owners. Today, one lady cancelled the money transfer and tried to get the refund. Guess what, one of the branch didn't input the middle initial. This should be their job. They do this every day. They should help the consumers, not screw them around.
Or they don't give a sh----t. Within one mile on the same street, it had three branches. All different authorized branch owners that would tell you something. Good luck.
What Happened in 4.2.8
It was the best of apps. It is now the worst of apps. The WU app. worked flawlessly most of the time on my iPhone 5S. On the 6 most of the time it gives me the dreaded Yellow Screen “Were sorry but…..” Calling WU “customer support” is a great way to get fee discounts (if you ever get the app. to work). Shutting down the iPhone after deleting the app. usually doesn’t get the app. to open after you reinstall it. I have tried twice to connect the iPhone to my P.C. and delete the app from the Sync. window. After re-installing using a Wi-Fi connection in my house it did work a few times.
The people in their off-shore tech support team are working from the usual script. Our only hope is that enough users report this problem, and WU’s I.T. people can fix this bug.
Every tine they Update it has more crashes. Last time I tried the “ Rewards” they were not for this life time. The only thing that gets higher is the fee.
