Pros and cons of LCBO app for iPhone and iPad

LCBO app good for

Love the update and the ability to centralize search for products from my favourite store - Looks and feels sleek. I made an account so all my favourites were saved!
Finally the app doesnt look like it was made in 2005. I love how my favourites are on my home screen. Makes it so much easier to find new products. Looking forward to new updates. Keep killing it!
The new app is much nicer and more pleasing to the eye. A lot more functionality and easier to navigate. I find it responds faster as well. Very clean look. I lost my favourites but not a big deal. The new look and feel improves the experience.
Beautifully crafted app, clean and well organized. Enjoying the features, maps, searching, didnt realize how much LCBO carried. Favourites are now saved indefinitely and remembers them to wherever I install the app.
I like the look and the feel of this app. It helps me find the information I am looking for.

Some bad moments

Brutal update ignoring basic software development principles wiping out years of history. Functionality isnt much better as well just flashier and clunkier. One star is mandatory to get review posted
The new update is garbage. It looks very nice but the functionality is atrocious. It has trouble finding stores, you cant search products by store (it just shows you LCBOs entire network of options). Used to like using the app often to find stuff at local LCBOs when I was out of town. Now its a piece of useless garbage that cant even find its own locations properly.
This update search engine sucks. The older version was easier to use and finding product at stores was better than this version. What a pain to check each store for availability. The web version is better. Why bother updating?
I had saved years of my favourites to the previous version and lost it all when I updated. Huge disappointment. It should have been a warning in the update info. Very inconsiderate of the developer.
Installing the new version of the LCBO app clears your existing favourites!!! Now that one bottle of wine I had stored from a year ago that I want to try again is gone and my memory is poor! Any thoughts on how to regain the data?
Just great! The LCBO has brought all the problems of their website to their app. Its not user friendly (making priority on nearest location than on price or name). It took a while to find the correct filter, but then it resets itself when you adjust the search. Bring back the old version.
