Despite the high fees, the app contains annoying ads and popups. If you refuse to let it bother you with unnecessary notifications, there are frequent popups that that make it difficult to log in. Worse, it will corrupt the name of the sender randomly. This means that it will send to the wrong person, requiring that one cancel the transaction. This may tie one's money up for a week while they wait for a refund. Horrible app. There are many alternatives. Use them instead.

Confusing still. Try to skip over pick up option for receiver. canceled me prior for no reason whatsoever. stuck with them for now. 3 is generous. Would use Remitly and get it done in a New York minute without being beat up with ads at the end, but receiver has no bank account. will look around when I get time.

For the love of God, please get rid of the advertisement bar that appears on the bottom of the screen. Every time I close the app and restart it, it always shows up. I'm trying to take a screenshot of a particular window and I cannot do that with the ad blocking the information I need to take a screenshot of. Please either get rid of the ad bar all together or or just allow it to disappear for at least a minute after clicking the X button on the ad bar.
