This app has been streamlined over the years. It has worked flawlessly and easily for me, though the fee charged is high. But you get great service at both ends of the transaction. I've done over a hundred transactions, only a couple have had any difficulty. The service over the phone is pretty weak. But the app remains practically flawless.

Each time I create an account I always see United States as the country which is annoying. I'm not from United States and I can't change it. I deactivated the account (via customer support) and created a new one but I still see United States. Do you want me to fill in a fake address? If yes, then I think you should go off the play store. 1>Installed app 2>sign up 3>I went to profile to fill in my info (then I see United States). Or I'm I doing something wrong? PS. I'm not using any vpn. Thanks

The app makes it convenient to send money to loved ones in other countries and it's way easier than waiting in the grocery store line. However,the developers have some bugs to fix. It takes an extraordinary amount of time to even open the app. I have to do a manual force shut down and reopen it so it works. I would give the app 3 or 4 stars but I want the developers to see this review and this issue fixed.
