Testing this app.

There are many functions on the WEB PAGE that are not available from the app.

For instance you cannot see your current plan rates and charges that I can see on the web page.

As an active member of these pages I signed up for this test.

No way will you will convince me to use this app.

Data is way out of date (same as web).

Information compared to the web info is LACKING.

I just answered a query from an existing post where the person told me I was wrong in that you could obtain your current rates he rang your contacts and they told him the info not available....

Above is the data I got from my web page...

Cheers Neil

Hi @NeilC , you can access your plan rates in the app by tapping the fuel type (e.g. Electricity) on the overview page, and then "Manage Plan" at the bottom. 

When you say that the data is way out of date, are you referring to the standard two-day delay resulting from the delay in AGL receiving usage data from the distributor?
