Generally a very good app. Easy to use. My only complaints are 1. The contactless chip reader is very persnickety. It's sometime difficult to pair, especially if it has been used with another device previously. Also, my brand new chip reader kept shutting down the app when we tried to run a transaction. We ended up having to use the swipe reader instead, which is less secure. 2. Not every device has a "this device only" option for reading sales reports.

I would like to see more user friendly portions for clients when booking appointments. Lately some are saying they can't book or sign in. Then can't save their card on file. Also would like an option for clients to request reoccurring appointments for the year. So I don't have to do it. And if they chose a time that is booked 1 or 2 app. out of 26 tell them the dates and times are not available and choose a different date. waiting list for dates. Text them when a time opens on that date.

I am enjoying the app. I do wish that once a convenience Fee has been created, that there were an option to apply it automatically on the POS and online. I appreciate the offline payment option as well! One tweak to that would be that it automatically records the person's card info, just incase the payment doesn't go through when connection is available, you can attempt to re-charge the card without the person present.
