Aggravating. The app let me get all the way to the point of clicking send before telling me it needed to update. Thank you for wasting more of my time and increasing my rage level for me. I honestly thought I'd have a freaking stroke trying to wait for this stupid thing to load itself and its pages. It took so long for it to do ANYTHING. Having to log in three times just to send one thing is NOT what I would call "easy" or "convenient." I think your developers should go back and start over.

Good for sending money after you open an account with WU. Exchange rates are so, so, but quick to receiver. Happy with it. Update: not sure what happened, but the app has more freezing time then actually working. At times I have to restart it 2 times and when it goes to receiver page I got to do it all over again; shut it down, reload the app, reopen it, reenter my info and all other info. Was working great and now 2 stars is generous.

Un-installing the app as it has no more use for me. Several transfer requests were declined without explanation. I tried five times. Every time I had to wait for hours just to get a declined notice. I checked the info several times for correctness. Customer service was totally useless. They even got nasty at times which I do not appreciate. Finally had it. Found a different service, less expensive, much better conversion rates, and easy to use.
