This app's user interface is beautiful and easy to navigate, as well as robust in regard to its suite of features. A user can pretty much do everything that they'd be able to do via 23andme's desktop website, all the while intuitively learning how to do so if it's their first time using the app. I really like this app.

The app is clean and aesthetically pleasing, however, since the last update or 2 YOU CANNOT SEND MESSAGES. It's glitched. When I go to reply to a message, there is NO option to send. If you drag the screen around, you can see the page glitching and a send button will briefly flash. But you can't select it. This happens in both portrait and landscape mode. It's extremely frustrating as I'm unable to reply to a new relative. The mobile site does the same thing. Can someone address this?

Excellent app so far. The only issue I can find with it is that, when the process of registering the kit or giving the saliva sample is interrupted by switching apps or closing the app, the app appears to go back to the beginning. Tapping the button at the bottom of the screen takes you to the proper screen, but knowing that you can just tap the "register kit" etc buttons is something some people might not know to do. So the process of using the app to register the kit becomes a bit ambiguous.
