As a general app for replacing the website it does good - you can access whatever you need from the site. HOWEVER, Paychex's decision to retire the Time app and force you to clock in/out with Flex was a poor decision clearly made by people that don't use it. It absolutely SUCKS for clocking in and out. To get the app to load quick you have to strip out all the tiles. But it then mirrors it on the site so you lose all info there too.

The existence of options in the app is awesome. Really good. However, the app STRUGGLES with simple touch interactions and feels choppy. Loading the app appears to stutter at start up and during use. Very sluggish transitions that end up causing freezing or temporary hung processing. Logging in through the web site from a browser on mobile devices is faster than the app. Not a great app experience. My suggestion: Use the web version until there's improvement on the app.

Slowest app on my Pixel 5 phone. From launching the app, until I'm punched in, is anywhere from 20 seconds to 1 minute. Sometimes it just loads forever when signing in, and I have to close and restart the app. Sometimes the punch in just hangs for 10-20 seconds. This slowness has been around for at least a year and feels like it's getting worse. Doesn't seem like they're ever going to address it.
