When it works it is decent. A bit limited in what it can do, but better than nothing. The issue is that it regularly has issues: doesn't connect to the server, requires user to constantly log in, shows information in duplicate, or shows nothing at all.

I am using an Android phone (Google Pixel) and have to regularly log out and log back into the app to get it to function correctly.

When it works it's alright. Unfortunately I've had the same experience as others where - after I've been using it for a few weeks - the app goes into some sort of loop when you open it, requiring me to uninstall & reinstall, which fixes it for a while.

What's new

We've made several improvements to the app login. If you've enabled two-step verification to strengthen your account security, you will now need to use that when logging into the app. You can also log into the app using your Google or Apple credentials.
