After the latest update on 28-March-2024, App has stopped working. Each time the message pops up as " Pockets has stopped. Open App again" . When you open the App again, message pops up as" Pockets keeps stopping. Close the App". Cleared caches many times, uninstalled the App thrice.. But the problem remains. App is extremely good in every other issue. Please look into the matter & fix the bug.

Very very slow (as compared to PayTm), and extremely annoying. Keeps showing "you have won a reward" after every transaction, only to reveal that I'm not the lucky one. Asks for feedback, but when I try to submit it, the app says "please enter a valid grievance". This app needs to be built by professional app developers. Undergraduate computer science students will design better a user interface than this app.

While registering, it asks to enter date of birth, and gives no option to type it manually, can only be done via the date selection menu, but it allows scrollback only 1 month at a time ! No option to access the year and scroll back year-wise. So if someone is 45+ years old, they have to click the back month button more than 540 times ! Ridiculous. This app meant for babies, of course I dumped this app ...
