Bug fixes and general improvements
Ratings and Reviews
It forced me to put profile of Lusea in but when I had filed in all fields it would not update. It kept telling me I needed a guid? I couldn’t leave the page. I had to close our app to leave it. Needs work.
App crashes, mixed service
The 2 star is mostly for the app crashing all the time when I try to chat with a vet. I mean that’s pretty much the only useful function of the app! Lucky that they still have a web app, although I got disconnected and reconnected a lot throughout my conversation.
As with the service, it’s a mixed bag, but I still got useful information from them every time. I’ve had a doctor who was very nice, very patient, and spent a decent amount of time with me on the phone when my cat was seriously ill and was not responding to treatments. She helped me both informatively and emotionally. Another time I was chatting with a vet, and I felt kind of rushed. It may have been because the connection kept dropping so the vet wasn’t sure if I was still there or not. I still got very useful information, but I guess my previous experience simply set too high of a bar.
Broken: Needs GUID?
It was working before I logged in. Now it forces me to re-input the info over and over again because it never saves — just says it needs GUID, even though it isn’t mentioned what that is referring to and you fill out all the boxes. Even when exiting the app and trying to boot it up again, it forces you back to the pet profile screen again and the whole process starts again.
The only reason it isn’t a one star is because it was working long enough to show me some toxic plants before I logged in. It has potential but the app needs serious work and more frequent updates for these kinds of bugs.
