Competes against itself. If you get the app on your phone it sends a text message code to verify it's you. Yet when you have to click out of the app to get the text message code and re-enter the app, it takes you right back to the beginning to log in and get a code again...thus continuing a vicious cycle of you never logging into your account. Extreme flaw on their part. Other apps allow for this or even pop up an 'allow' request on the screen.

WORST APP EVER. What kind of money transfer app doesn't connect with Chase?? Chase is one of the most well-known and commonly used banks in the entire country! Spent over 25 minutes trying to get it to send money from PayPal to Chase, but it's just not an option. The only option I did have is to wait 10 days for a check, from which they deducted a fee. Ridiculous. I will NEVER use PayPal ever again, nor will I ever recommend it. Done.

So typically this app gets the job done and is quicker than the browser version, but recently I've been getting daily warnings that the PayPal app is taking up an insane amount of RAM in the background, sometimes when I haven't even used it that day and the app is closed. I tried their solution of deleting and reinstalling/clearing the cache, but it fixed nothing. I really see no reason why this app should be wrecking my phone's RAM as much as it does. Hold off till they roll out a fix.
