Great but lacking some work to it
The app won't let you reregister under the same phone number unless you unlink the number before deleting your account. If the previous account was deleted, then the number shouldn't stay registered. There is also no way you can change delete your profile picture, you can only change it to a different photo. It doesn't have a way to notify you if the message has been read or not. It's great but there are a few features that should be fixed asap.
Cannot log in on >1 device; missed messages
Developers: please make fix to this. Cannot log in on more than one device at a time, using same account. If during the time that I am logging in on one device and logging out of another, someone sends me a message, the message will not appear and be lost forever. This makes it very inconvenient to keep using the app on new phones, etc. because I am afraid I will miss a message by logging out.
This app has allowed me to share and connect with my friends from the other side of the globe. I recommend this app for people who have relatives or friends living far away and it's great that the texting is free. One suggestion is that they should make neko atsume stickers!!!
