2 majors issues iOS 13.3

1. Does not work in Dark Mode 2. If you are viewing a message in portrait mode and happen to turn your phone to landscape the app locks up. However, you can view the messages in landscape but only if you turn your phone to landscape prior to going into the message from a user. Anotherwords ..Tuen it to landscape while viewing the screen with the list of users you are messaging. So if you happen to be viewing a message and you happen to pull your phone away from you face do do whatever, when you bring it back up to continue reading your message, you’ve inadvertently turned your phone. So now it locks up and you have to press the power button to lock the phone and reopen the app. Frustrating.

Curiously incompatible with dark mode

In Dark Mode messages are nearly unreadable, showing up as dark gray on gray.

The list of messages is oddly organized and it’s hard to tell what’s read and new. Notifications will seemingly repeat old messages along with new ones.

Could use a comprehensive interface overhaul.

Adequate but waiting for improvements

This is one app we've been able to get approval for via the Information Services and Legal and Compliance but I keep hoping for improvements like a longer more robust vibration, volume adjustable tones and a MUCH wider variety of alarm tones to choose from. "Clair de Lune" is nice to not set my blood pressure spiking during the day but it doesn't wake me out of a deep sleep. Nor do I want the Stones at night. Give us more choices! It is great to be able to text nursing back securely and the "close the loop" of communication, confirming that notifications have been received.
