New phone having problems with this program now. I replaced my old phone with the same model and phone number and all of the sudden this app no longer works or wants to collect data as it was before. It worked perfectly before, so I'm really disappointed that it won't work now. Viewpoints still works fine just not this one. It won't let me give it permission to collect data within the app or in the app settings, just tells me to uninstall it now. What's up with that?!

I don't mind app on my phone at all. I actually forget about it until I suddenly have a bunch of reward points added to my Viewpoints reward account. My phone doesn't mess up or have any problems functioning, and it still loads just as fast as it did before I installed it. So far so good, they've never not rewarded me my points. Good app. Trustworthy in my opinion.

I as well keep getting emails saying the app has been paused. Though my phone is active and on all day. I've kept up to date with the new updates I've tried uninstalling and then reinstalling the app as well. The status icon seems be blue looks like it indicates that its active. There isnt any user controls or anything to help any of these problems. I contacted and email back and got the answer of all the things I've already done.
