What's New in Version 5.7.563
This thing eats messages. Notifications show up and mysteriously disappear just as quickly. When you open up the app, there is no trace of the message anywhere. Furthermore, the messages don't show up on any computers that were signed into Lync as well because of this. Also, when messages do come through properly, there is no traceback of the conversation on other devices. Skype does this and Lync is supposedly Skype for Business. Hangouts does this. iMessage does this. Let's be honest, every modern messaging platform does this. This app is completely useless yet I have to leave installed on my phone because I am a field employee and my company uses it as their de facto messaging platform.
Come on, Microsoft!!
I use this because my corporate IM solution is Lync. It beats not having a mobile option, but is lame: It does not sync with the desktop version, it does not show conversations started on desktop, it drains my phone battery way too quickly, it does not allow certain kinds of sharing sessions initiated from the desktop. When the other party is offline, it will not deliver a message so your text is gone. In this day and age of GroupMe, Messenger, and Slack, Lync is just lame. Come on, Microsoft!! You have to do better!!
Can anyone say QA?
Excessive permissions and poor quality apps are all too prevalent these days. It's frustrating and sad, especially when you're forced to use an app for business. Some folks may chime in with, "it's free, what do expect?" - that's the world we live in.
Now to this particular app. Please take heed of all the poor ratings. And, please fix the issue I'm experiencing with long messages not wrapping while viewing missed messages on the main screen, i.e., outside of a chat session. This issue prevents you from reading the full text of a message or the ability to retrieve the extended text.
