Here we are, in the middle of a pandemic, and I came across a suggestion on an airline’s website to download the Travel Smart app so I could keep up to date with travel requirements. On the app I could see a lot of negative reviews but I thought maybe they were old. Downloaded the app. Clicked open and it failed. Went to the icon on my phone and tried to open-it failed. Closed app and tried again-it failed. Have to agree this is a piece of tax payer funded crap. Thanks for nothing.
Is this app supposed to do something? Or does it just sit there?
Tried opening app, just freezes for 6-7 seconds and goes right back to my home screen, tried deleting and reinstalling , same thing does not work- don’t even bother its a waste of time, I’m surprised with all negative reviews about app you’d think the developer would at least apologize and try to fix app or at least comment that they’re working on solution
Got a notice about country I am in. Opened the notice and APP crashes - every time you try to start it!
Application won’t open. When the icon is pressed it sits on the home screen for several seconds and then closes. Frustrating to receive an email from Global Affairs recommending an application that doesn’t work!
Seems to work unlike the other reviews. I don’t know how good it will work until I receive a notification so I will update the rating then😁
The app is displayed much too small for my screen. It does still function for me.
Will not open, in spite of deleting and reloading - total waste of time and effort. Unfortunately cannot give the minus rating this app should receive
Tried multiple times and app will not open. Sends me notifications but then I cannot open app to read it.
I installed the app, clicked to open it and after about 7-9 sec of waiting it .... shut down! I tried again - same result. Third time’s a charm? Nope. Delete!
I tried several times to open this APP and it only works once. It opens and closes. Can’t access nothing. Useless APP.
Ne fonctionne pas ne veut pas ouvrir ne donne rien ridicule votre. Cite
Vraiment pas fonctionnel!
L’application ne s’ouvre pas, ça plante tout le temps... 🤯
It opens but said they’re upgrading servers and to try again in several minutes. It’s been like that for hours.
I cant open the app, it crashed all the time. It really need a update!!!
Doesn’t work. Crashes and never opens. Typical Canadian government project. I wonder how many hundreds of millions of dollars we paid for this junk
Unlike many reviews shown (many of which are old) I have been using it regularly without fail...useful for all aspects of a trip...
App does not open properly. Crashes on the first screen.
This app is useless it doesn’t even open!!
Whenever I tap the assistance (main tab or menus) it crashes. Cannot find the integration with travel.gc.ca registration, as is claimed in the app description. Otherwise, useful information.
I’ve been using this app for about a month now, and am subscribed to the country I’m currently in along with surrounding countries in South America. That app sends helpful updates, and is very easy to navigate. A must for travellers and those living abroad!
I found if I start the app and go to home menu or another app while this one is loading, the crashing doesn’t seem to happen as often (iOS 12 - iPhone8)
Awesome general info on each country I’m looking to visit and work in. The embassy/consulate locator on the map works fine for me. Really handy to know where they all are in a country before going and that helps me plan my trip.
App is old and doesn’t open most of the time , and it takes long time to load , and require iphone x support
I am travelling abroad tomorrow and downloaded the app BUT it doesn’t open!!! Very disappointed!
Complete crap. Freezes right off the bat. Completely useless. Can’t believe this is still available.
Aucune possibilité d’utiliser cette application. La mise à jour date d’il y a un an! Svp mettez-vous à la page!
Vous êtes dans le Protégez-vous pour les applications utilent en voyage...... 🤔
Cannot add locations, constant freezing...deleting and downloading did not work. Innovation....NOT!
The app constantly freezes when you try to add new destinations. I erased it and reloaded it several times. I am a flight attendant and count on government updates for issues at foreign travel destinations and was looking forward to using and promoting this app. I’m surprised they launched it with so many bugs. I’m on an iPhone 7s (as are many flight attendants) and it’s working for nobody. Major missed opportunity. I would gladly promote a better product with colleagues and customers.
Constantly freezes on destination page. Not worth it at all. No star required.
Aucun moyen d’ajouter une nouvelle destination.
SVP FIXER LE PROBLÈME !
Impossible de mettre à jour ou d’ajouter une destination INUTILE
As others have stated, as soon as you go to the “Select a Country” page upon initiating the app, it freezes and/or crashes. Every time.
iPhone 6, iOS 12.1.4
Pas capable d’enregistrer une destination. Aucune utilité à ce moment là.
App installs fine on my iPhone 7 but as soon as I try to add a destination it locks up. Not much value if you cannot add a destination!
This app is very useful for international travel planning and for that reason I’m giving it five stars. The problem is that it has become impossible lately to get it to load before it crashes. Come on, please get it going again and then keep it up-to-date. Thank you!
Developed by the same people who programmed the Phoenix payroll system it seems .... completely useless. Doesn’t work on iOS.
Didn't make it past adding a travel location. App keeps freezing.
Cette application pourrait être très utile mais lorsqu’on choisit un pays, l’écran gèle et il ne se passe rien. Réglez le problème ou retirez l’application svp.
The app downloads fine, but whenever I try to add a destination and hit save, the whole app freezes. Have closed and reboot, but no luck.
Like several reviews shared here, App does not work. No issue with download, but every attempt I made in selecting a country, App freezes, then crashes. Unable to add or save any country, rendering the App pretty much useless. Appears that this issue has been ongoing for more than a year. Gov of Canada - either fix it, or pull it out from the App Store.
Great application but after selecting a country, it freezes!!!
Does nobody try using the app before launching? Another IT initiative by the Canadian government that doesn’t actually work.
Idea is very good but app does not allowed to choose destinations, it gets freezing when you try to select a country
Je me demande si Quelqu un a testé l application avant de la rendre disponible??? Honteux!
