Ratings and Reviews
This app is truly awful.
Sotheby’s needs to remove this from the App Store. It never should have been allowed to see the light of day in this state.
The gallery functionality is horrible. Photos are oriented in landscape mode, as they should be for looking at... landscapes (imagine that!). But when you hold your phone in landscape mode, the pictures don’t resize properly to fit the screen. It just zooms in and most of the picture goes off screen, so you then have to pan to see the missing portion. Landscape slideshow mode is nonexistent.
And the lack of basic navigation capabilities makes the app totally unusable. After you click on a listing, how do you get back to your search results? You can’t. Instead, you have to redo your search, then redo your sort, then scroll down to where you left off in the results.
Phenomenal improvement from old app
I think the above reviews are SmarterAgent trolls or something, because the new app is leaps and bounds better than the previous. The old app did not support: video, currency conversion, language translation, nor unit of measurement conversion, and that’s just the start! The look and feel of the old app was antiquated where you had to roll through a drop down menu to select cities you had to first start typing - a 2 step process. I’m so happy to be rid of the app, love the truly international capabilities.
Find Another App
There are a fair number of negative reviews for this app. When I first read those reviews I thought it was the typical “I hate change” review. I was wrong. I really wanted the updated version of this app to be as promised. Unfortunately it’s just the opposite. This app is terrible. It’s slow, difficult to navigate, and generally just clunky.
There are plenty of RE apps out there. Find another one - any other one. I am sure they will be better than this one. I expected much more. Sotheby’s sets an expectation of luxury. I don’t expect perfection from any one person or company but an epic failure like this is very much unexpected. They should be disappointed.
