Android app is very tedious

This is the worst of all the authenticators I have used (Google, Google Account, Last Pass. I always have to do four actions on my phone to log in somewhere: I have to unlock my phone, pull down notifications, click on the notification, and then click on “Approve”. Or I unlock my phone, open the app, click on “Request Waiting”, and then “Approve”. What is up with all of that? Even the iPhone app makes it so you unlock the phone and click “Approve”. Why is the Android app some bastard child that doesn’t work smoothly? I would never use it if it wasn’t mandated by my company.
