Need more than one skip

The app works as designed, however users would benefit from being able to use the skip or next function more than once when generating pass codes. The service I use to log in to work from home is not the best and often requires multiple attempts to finally log me in. After I use my initial skip I am stuck waiting the full amount of time between new pass codes.

Last update fixed the stupid UI!

Edit: Changed from 1 star to 5. The devs took a look at the shape of their human hands and realized they had created a UI for extraterrestrials. With the last update, this app is once again intended for humans!

My previous review:
This is a perfect example of software design without user experience testing. We used to be able to enter a passcode and hit enter, all with a single hand. Now after entering the passcode, you have to find the tiniest little ‘submit’ button at the other end of the screen. Very difficult one-handed experience. Hey RSA—this is an easy fix. Give us back a return key on the keypad.

Love the simplicity and user interface. Privacy feels unrespected.

The app gets the job done efficiently, and I can’t think of a better alternative for this. My only problem is that the app consistently re-asks for permission to access things like photos and videos, or other pieces of data. iPhone users know that Apple doesn’t inherently allow this, so we receive an alert box that pops up and asks us “allow” or “don’t allow”. Well, one time should have been enough, but this app consistently asks every opportunity it gets to. I’ve never hit allow, and I won’t ever hit allow. I shouldn’t have to remind the developers of my decision not to provide access to my sensitive data multiple times a week.

Like I said, besides that the app is fantastic.
