In no particular order ... and I reserve the right to add to this.
I do like the tile options on the main page. Set them up best for my store. Kudos for that and little else.
I'm laughing at your comments, but not because it's funny, it's just so ridiculous that there are all these things wrong with it and more!! Agree with everything, the close of day is confronting to even attempt! How is a black background with white writing so much better than what it was?? That's like the big marketing pitch, "fresh new look", it's a work tool, it's meant to work, looks are completely secondary. We are finding it as glitchy as crazy, took 3 days of no POS on the ipad, using our phones, had to restore the ipad to get it to work. Scanning a product is now a complex task!!
I truly suspect that Shopify has too many programmers who have 0 retail experience.
The admin pages are another laugh. Tons of wasted screen space, so you're forced to slide windows, etc. Tiny boxes for variant descriptions.
eg: The variant description window in Admin is about 12 char wide. We have variant descriptions that are 30 - 50 char ...
And tell them ... will they listen?.... hah! Fat chance.
Glad to see I'm not alone in this. The new update is laughably awful, specifically the register closing process. It constantly won't "remember" that I removed cash the previous day and give tell me that drawer count is wildly off. Hopefully they fix it soon. I agree, need to go back to me entering how much cash I am removing and not how much I am leaving.
