Easy and quick way to transfer money. To edit my previous review. This app is now hard to use since it has been updated. It keeps crashing after all details have been put in. Very frustrating. Most times it takes more than ten attempts before you may be lucky enough to have the transfer go through. I would diwngrade my previous rating to two stars.

What's going on with the mobile? It keeps crashing and wasn't able to send any transfer at all!!!! I have been using WU for more than 25 years now and I never had any problem with it before but with the new mobile app and specifically after the last update, things are getting upsetting! I uninstalled it, re-installed again and again and nothing. With all the other apps out there, you are not doing yourself a favor!

UPDATE: I have reported these issues to the technical support team and their answer has always been disappointing. They only ask me to reinstall the app with no real solution Overall the app works well but... 1. I cannot use my driver's license in Toronto, Canada as the ID is not recognized by the system. 2. My profile doesn't save the personal information questions related to employment status. 3. The system uses the 2nd last name field as the first last name when the transaction is processed.
