Features are promising but quality is to be desired
The new update has completely rendered this app worthless. I kept getting "Unable to connect to the server" message every time when I tried opening the app using cellular data. I had to use wifi to make the app to connect . What a completely utterly piece of garbage app. I would give 0 star if I can .
Notification doesn't work. If I open the app I will have messages waiting I thought it should give notifications?
Also features are nice it sure beats iMessage but I think they got poor executions.
Apple Watch app 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).
Update 6.3.13 Useless
This update 6.3.13 is worthless! Since the update I cannot do video call without seeing my screen jump, flicker and go crazy! Why?
"Shake" why is this feature so annoying and disgusting? Almost every shake you get a profile showing a mans body part, why? When I and others report this, wechat team sends a message saying this was resolved, but later we still see these profiles still using shake! Do you realize that this means Wechat team is not going their job?
"Shake" why is shake favoring profiles from the Middle East? Almost every shake is a Middle East person showing a body part photo!
What happened to Asia in Shake?
Why can't we see Japan, China, Thailand and Philippines in shake?
Tired and disgusted with "Shake".
Anyone else seeing this with shake and is disgusted with shake?
Please write about it!
