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.
Awful update again
“This app is so awful that it had to have been on purpose to ruin the reputation of Sotheby’s by a disgruntled employee. Where to start....”
That’s how I started the last time SIR updated the app. So what is it like after another update? Sadly much worse.
You want to log in using Facebook? Good luck. It will take you to the FB site, ask you if you want to use the FB app instead (it’s not really a choice, you have to use the FB app) and crashes. You try it again because you were never logged in. If you somehow manage to log in, you are slowly taken to the homepage and when you try to do anything, it crashes.
If you happen to get lucky and are able to access your saved properties page, clicking on the “Your Portfolio” link does.......nothing. You click on it again and again and again until it reluctantly takes you to your saved properties. Once you look at one of the properties, you have no way to return to your original list (this also happens to your searched properties).
This app is just a lazy emulation of their website. Truly a piece of garbage as an app.
The old app was great. This new thing just does not function reliably. It’s extremely slow, and most of the touch screen operations require multiple attempts to work. More often than not frustration sets In, and you end up pressing the screen too many times, and end up in a place you didn’t intend to go. The developers that built this thing deserve to be fired. It is truly awful!
