fingerprint stopped working. so the app needs to be reinstalled. then it gives a mistake during registration. it cannot be used so should be zero stars given. 2023 update How is it possible that money goes within family 30-60 min?? Why Revolut does it in 5 seconds?

The QR-code scanner is kind of broken. It doesn't let you focus the camera on the QR-code which makes it really difficult to scan the codes

I was able to use this app only every third time I opened it. The first time it was simply frozen on the loading screen. Then, a week later, I was able to log in, make a payment etc - all well. Then again a few weeks later, it again doesn't work. It shows the main screen but I am not able to press buttons. I can access the main menu but the screen again seems frozen or irresponsive. What is the matter with the UI here?
