Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Rating is for a few UI bugs; 4stars overall
1. Swiping left on a file to reveal “More”, “Rename” and “Delete” options, a window pops up to confirm selection, but you can sometimes select a file which is “behind” the pop-up. This will open the file with the pop-up window still up and freeze the app.
2. When entering text in a field with the onscreen keyboard, the “Previous”, “Next”, “Reset Field” and “Done” are blue in colour on a dark grey background located above the keyboard making it hard to read.
3. Selecting “Reset Field” will make the keyboard hide and a pop-up window to confirm your choice. Why do I have to tap twice to make one decision? Also, the keyboard hiding every time I need to reset a field is very annoying and interrupts the workflow.
Editing comments makes me RAGE!!!
Entering a new comment is easy enough, but editing it later is a terrible user experience. Firstly, the interface is not intuitive at all. I remember in previous versions, you could just tap on the comment and tap "Edit Text" on the context menu and you could edit it right there on the page. Simple and functional.
Now, in one of those "upgrades that makes the product worse", you tap on the comment and an ugly dialog box comes up. Looks like you can edit your comment there, right? Nope, you need to tap a "..." icon and then click "Edit Note" and THEN you can edit the comment in a different field. Can't you see this workflow is convoluted?
This dialog box is an absolute NIGHTMARE on the iPad. You can't resize the dialog, so if you have a lengthy comment, you're forced to edit it in a tiny 3-line x 8-word text field. You can't select text because dragging the text selection bars moves the whole dialog around. And most infuriating of all, you have to tap the "Post" button PRECISELY to save your changes. If you tap next to it or below it or basically anywhere else but in that tiny text field or on that Post button, you lose all your changes. I have lost SO MANY edits that way!
1 or 2 things could make it better
This app is really good for reading and making notes on the go but I wish you could organize your documents into lists or sections. I also wish that there was a way to change the names of each document once they are in the app.
These two things would really help with organization (if these features already exist then I can't find them and maybe they need to be made easier to find).
