In general, I like the idea and find the app relatively easy to use. I am missing a feature to tag messages e.g. "todo" and "processed". Also, it looks like the app always shows the content from a remote server, it does not download it. It already caused troubles once when I couldn't see the message, the notification of which already was showing up in my smartphone.

Repeatedly complains that I cannot login because of a server error with the server that manages pincodes. Has been like this for almost a week. I cannot get in to see the message that has been sent to me. It may be something quite important. No offline help available for problems such as these. I tried hitting retry over and over... after a dozen times it worked. Then the app gave a different error and crashed. It put up a message saying "Laden..." and stayed like that for half an hour.

Login using DigiD works, but then half the screen is taken by DigiD. Resizing the app to full screen crashes the app. End result: unusable.

Beste gebruiker, vervelend dat de app niet goed werkt. Om je goed van dienst te zijn kun je het beste contact opnemen met de helpdesk van MijnOverheid. Kijk voor de mogelijkheden op de contactpagina van MijnOverheid. ^KH | Webcare MijnOverheid
