Ratings and Reviews
3 reasons for a bad review
1-Ads keep popping up although there is a subscription fee that varies between 50 aed(4G) and 100 aed(WIFI) per month in uae. Believe or not the main issue here is not the actual ads, it is the fact that etisalat/du will use your mobile data to load them (if on 4G) and that will also drain the phone’s battery life immensely
2-since the number of subscribers drastically increased, the developers failed to keep up with the demand, as a result, voice/video calls are no longer as good as they once were. Nowadays you can expect interruptions every 5 or 10 mins at best, huge lags due to server overload and dialing someone two or three times before you can hear anything.
3- the developers cannot keep up with the released updates. After the release of ios 11.3, the BOTIM team was not able to fix its internal bugs and is still struggling to provide a decent update to this day.
I can get no satisfaction.
Although it is paid app in the UAE, but it is absolutely not satisfactory app at all, for the following reasons:
1- The quality of the calls has become recently bad including disconnections?!
2- Although it is paid, it is not comparable at all to many other apps we used before, especially the absence of “group” video calls?! Which is a huge need for many families or groups of friends, that you can’t miss in the 21st century communications.
3- The poor interface of the app and features. You don’t need to be an IT professional to notice that.
4- At the end of every call, the app insists to bother us with a message “invite friends to BOT” without an option “do not show this message again”?! Logically, when we needed to invite friends we did because of our need, and not because of this bothering message. Anyways, give us at least the chance to “not show the message later”.
5- Believe that BOTIM, along with the support of ETISALAT & DU, will consider quickly and positively, the need of a better quality of the calls, adding the “group video calls”, and considering other observations from the specialized professionals, to satisfy the users of this app.
Wish you all the best, to serve us better.
Driving low user satisfaction
At first, we had reservations paying to use internet calling and not having access to apps used by rest of world. After installing BOTIM, experience has been disappointing!
1- Calls keep dropping or other party cannot hear. Last night I called 6 times for a 5 minute conversation.
2- Advertisements keep appearing despite paying for the service! Home WiFi speeds are already low.
3- The other party cannot hear the call when dialing. I have to often call them to ask them to receive my BOTIM call.
4- Got to keep asking everyone globally to install an app just to speak to me. Why not extend to globally popular services like Skype & WhatsApp calling for convenience?
5- It’s just too expensive to buy multiple services, makes us feel very disconnected.
6- Even computer to computer services for meeting collaboration tools (zoom, webex, Skype, etc) are blocked on WiFi networks from home. I cannot join business meetings with my suppliers or customers from home anymore! How do we do work outside our work desk?
There is no choice but to raise complaints for improvements. I am raising these for the DU BOTIM developer team to help us improve the experience & usage.
