The app is great for things like clocking in and out, grabbing pay stubs, etc. Unfortunately, in the play store, it says location data is optional, but the app REQUIRES location data to be on. There's nothing optional about that! If a permission is required, that should be made blatantly obvious. This app also requires login after updating. With all the steps needed to login, kinda ridiculous.

This is the worst app on my phone. Whether it actually lets you clock in or throws up a "failed to aquire geolocation" error (despite accessing the location according to my OS) seems nearly random. Sometimes I feel like I need to restart the phone and whisper gentle words of encouragement for it to work. This has been the case on both the stock Google OS and a custom rom. The only saving grace from this absurdly poor geolocation experience is that you can adjust your hours.

I prefer the website version. Please add a link to the desktop version in the app. Bouncing between both interfaces, like with most other apps is pretty practical, especially since the app version is simplified. For some reason, I cannot view the desktop version, unless of course I'm on a computer. This sucks. but when I try to go to the login page, I end up on some other intro page about the program/company and free trials, etc.
