New app finally functional Well, they have finally fixed the new app mostly to my satisfaction. It is minimally easier than the old app with a couple less clicks to order wine. The alerts are now better with a notification giving you a heads up as to what's currently being offered (which is an improvement, b/c now if it is a varietal or style in which you have no interest, you can swipe it away without having to open the app). The only downside is that the alert sound and vibrate is not customizable, which needs to be addressed.
New App Sucks The new app cost me a case of IGT! I emailed customer service who used to provide fantastic service but they failed to even respond. The app wouldn't allow me to process my order. I have been a loyal customer since 2010. I've never seen them say sold out wait until next order either!
Huge step backward! The resent update attempts to mirror the website. So much so that I think it's a bookmark. The notification settings have NOT been fixed on android. The notification settings only offer email changes. Push notifications and sound controls have been removed. I'm very disappointed and now rely only on email.
What's up with this update? I stopped receiving notifications, and there is not even an option to enable them. By the time I see an email the deal is often gone. Notifications still don't work, after another update. There is no option to control push notifications, only email. "Keep me logged in" option doesn't work either. Application doesn't follow "Material design" guidelines and is quite ugly. *** Update*** Password and notification problems have been fixed, though the app still periodically logs me out. (Not sure if it is by design). It still can use an update to it's visuals.
Lots of bugs New app is terrible. New wine notice runs 30 - 45 minutes after email of same wine notice, causing you to miss popular wines. With app turned off, it will still activate your phone's notification tone, again after you have already received email notification 30 minutes earlier, very annoying. Lots of bugs. Had to remove. Been with WTSO for 3 years and love it, will stick with their emails.
The concept and presentation are fine, nothing glamorous. My issue is with data retention. If you have a check box to "remember me" then remember me! I have to sign in EVERY freaking time I want to order something.
