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. (I am not reviewing the phone operation. Just the app.)

It's a really good app, but for one detail. There are not enough paths to navigate details once you've started a transaction. I often have to cancel a transaction and start again because I forgot to use my WU points for a fee discount. In the final review window, there's no way to use those points, if you previously forgot. Also, if you use the edit and resend feature, there's no line item for using my WU points.

Fairly easy to do transfers if you need to do them consistently. You can edit your previous transactions to the same person and send instead of filling out the entire form. However, it did say my first transfer in the app would have no fee and that was false. They did indeed charge the entire fee so don't believe that.
