iPhone X Update?

The app seems to be working fine but can somebody update the dimensions for the new iPhone screen? I have an iPhone XR and it is difficult to navigate Bonapp when the screen dimensions are off! Please and thank you :)

Developer Response ,

Thanks for reporting! We have tested on a real iPhone XR and on the simulator and it looks fine now. Let us know if it is still off on your phone. Thank you!

I Tried

I tried to submit feedback to the developer directly via their website but I received a pop-up error “object object). So I am going to leave my feedback here.

The map view of “Near Me” doesn’t populate any results. When I go to the list view there are places shown, but when I go to map view it shows my location (blue dot) but no restaurants are displayed.

IPhone 7
IOS 13.3 (although this has been going on for about 3 months maybe longer)
Most updated App version
Deleted app and re downloaded

This used to be a must have app in Shanghai, it was never great on the software side but it worked. But in the 2 years I have used it things have shifted towards a focus on meet ups and dating while the App itself has not gotten any better or more stable.

Hope to become an active user again but the map search is, for me, a critical feature.

Trying to do too much

This app WAS great and simple. Need a place to eat close? Need delivery? It was my go to. Now each time to open the app you have to go through 2 marketing screens which then open your settings. You have to close the settings and go back to the app if you want to browse. And lately the browsing locks so you have to close and go through all of the lame steps again. I guess I’ll be forced to use elema in Shanghai now. Bon App go back to what worked. Link an app for all that other crap.

Developer Response ,

Believe it or not, there is a clear demand for an all-in-one app for international people in China - who wants to download 15 apps in each city they visit, especially for the first time.

That being said, we optimized the onboarding experience so you don't need to see the same pages each time.

Try the new version - it's global and much cleaner.
