Apple Watch app slow and buggy
If a WeChat notification appears on the Apple Watch and I choose one of the smilies or quick reply messages, the message isn't sent out in 60% of the cases. I never know if it worked or not. I have to check on my phone to make sure that my watch sent out the message. Completely useless.
About the iPhone app:
Pictures I posted on my moments ages ago and not made available to see for a certain group of people are not visible to any (!) new friends I make.
This is a major bug.
Maybe it would be best to have an additional setting to chance the privacy settings for a picture posted on moments after it has been posted.
At the moment there is only private or public (public being a group of people from years ago and not friends I have made in the last few years).
Best app ever
Every Chinese person has this app and uses it all the time to chat and share moments with family and friends. Never had a problem with the app. Excellent!
Good but not great
I use to stay in contact with my fam. It's very easy to use but it has its limitations. Can't easily add someone if you don't have the contact in your address book. Can't tag ppl in pictures, etc. it's good but not great.
