It works!!

I didn't know that there was more than one Messenger. I found out when my original one stopped working and, while trying to fix it, I discovered a whole world of alternatives. This one worked, and that's all I ask. I don't even know about all of the "bells and whistles" that are available. I just want to be able to communicate, and I can with this one.

Not bad

Overall a good basic messenger. It lacks support for the new “secret” feather Facebook now offers, and they begged for this review using a discusting POP UP. Do I recommend. Sure, try it. You might like, might not. Prepare for pop up interruptions. I leave reviews where warranted. When asked by a pop up, you get what you ask for, so here;s your review. I’ll now delete the app because of the pop ups.

the popup it's only 1, and about 1 time. Anyway, we are sorry for your bad experience. Best regards


Not worth the 99 pennies

this is pretty much a window of the FB browser… if I had known, I would have saved my 99 pennies and just put a seperate tab from Safari on the side. This does the same exact thing. I want an app that only has messenger.. guess that is not happening on the MacBook!
