Quite an absurd experience so far. My user credentials keep being rejected to a point I can no longer counter the number of password ressets I've perfomed. I suppose this is a location and translation script in the app. It defaulted to my language location and everytime I attempt to change to the location where I am, it fails. Total waste of time.

App itself is fiddly and unbelievably slow. Then, instead of being almost instant, the cash is not available for collection till a few days later (Pakistan). BUT WU pick-up is easy for the recipient, and the job gets done eventually. So I continue to use it. LATEST: The app has now improved. A bit faster, a bit clearer, a bit friendlier. I've got to know workarounds that shouldn't be needed. Still difficult for newcomers.

The first time I used the app it failed repeatedly,then it worked for the first time after trying it six months later. It transfered to my bank account in under a day. Was very refreshing. Still crashed during one use. Still using the app and it continues to work. Rates are getting low since the war.
