Edit: Good app going downhill

I used to think this a good app that had much improved. But something has gone awry - it keeps failing to search properly and comes up empty on books I’ve see in the store with
my own eyes. Then when I try and select something or call up an item on my wish list I get endless hanging with eventually a message saying “something went wrong” or “check your internet” when there is nothing whatsoever wrong with my connection and other apps and sites are working fine. I simply can’t use it like this and have turned to other providers.

Previous review:A lot of improvements have come on since I last looked at and ditched this app. It functions almost as well as the main website and allows creation of wish lists, ordering for click and collect etc. I now use this rather than the site and find it perfectly useful.

Doesn’t support Apple Wallet

I downloaded this app purely so that I could add the loyalty ‘Plus’ card to my Apple wallet for quick access when shopping (I prefer to browse in person than online) but unfortunately the app doesn’t have an option to do this.

Would definitely appreciate if any future updates made the card compatible with Apple wallet

I would also like to see a feature that allows me to scan receipts that I missed getting the points for in the past so that I can claim my points on my phone when I get home

Developer Response ,

Hi Xiannaah, thanks for your review. Apple wallet compatibility is on our list, sorry it's not here yet. The ability to scan receipts to add stamps is unlikely to happen in the near future - but if you hold on to your receipts we can add these the next time you're in a shop, or you can contact someone in the customer service team (see the help pages on the website https://www.waterstones.com/help/contact-us/28 ) and they will be able to do this for you remotely. Thanks, Catriona

Constant “sorry, something went wrong” errors

This app, in general, is great, but I’m increasingly getting frustrated with these errors (or “check connection” errors when there’s nothing wrong with my connection). I keep upgrading to the latest version, and I’m using the latest IOS, but I’m still getting errors.

The errors affect the “my account” area where I’d usually expect to see my wishlist, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to view my wishlist for many months now. If I want to save items, I have to add them to my basket, which I’d rather not do as I need to delete it all and re-add it if I’m only buying one or two things.

Note - I can do everything else in My Account fine, such as change personal details and view orders, but the wishlist feature is completely knackered.
