I barricaded the door my first game and then after a while the app told me a monster busted through the door. I just put him in the entry room but should I have made the monster make a check to see if it got through the barricaded door or was barricading this door useless?

I feel pretty sure you should have placed the monster on the other side of the door and made a test every mythos phase until the monster really breaks through.

FWIW, I played it the opposite way, following the app's instructions, when we did this exact same thing.

I have no idea what is the correct approach (though "do what the app says" is pretty good rule-of-thumb).

The app doesn't know you placed a barricade on the door. So you would need to do a barricade check to see if it breaks through it or not. Then as dewinduvae stated continue those until it successfully breaks through.

This is how I would play it at least.

I replayed it again an hour ago and, while the app doesn't know if you placed a barricade or not, the app does specifically say remove the barricade from the door when it says the monster bursts through, so I think this is just an "FU" from the game if you wasted an action barricading the door. Nice.

Yes. That particular bit was patched in precisely to answer your question, as it was missing from the first release of the app.

They should had patched in some reward for the players because they did waste an action putting a barricade
Something like
If there was a barricade, the monster destroys it but get hurt in the process. The monster take 1 damage for each investigator in the game
