This app is obviously only any use if your friends are on it and enjoy the app too. However there are some complications e.g the settings I set the resepients bubble red and it showed silver, I also started to search one letter the letter 'n' and it came up with absolutely no results! I also searched the letters 'ma' and the same thing happened again, no results. So that's why I'm sadly ratting this chat app two stars. But please feel free to download it yourself because I may have an untrustworthy device and it may work up to the standard that the comments have set or just your personal standard. No matter what I have put this is just my experience and opinion so it is not nessersererly correct. I do not want this to be taken as a bad comment or put any one off deliberately, this is just a guidance. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope this helps.
Works (sometimes). Use WhatsApp!
My girlfriend and I downloaded this because it was the only program of its type that supported iPod Touch. While the company that made this seem well-meaning, the app unfortunately needs a LOT of polishing. Message delivery is slow, you can't send video or audio, there are glitches with text entry especially when writing more than a few lines, there's no indicator for when the other person is typing, the app frequently crashes and closes itself, and top it all off, the servers will intermittently bar you, preventing you from sending or receiving anything at all for a few days.
Only use this app if you have no other options!
Needs Some Updating, But Good!
Excellent application, except there are a few problems that need to be addressed:
• Status Update: Please include a status update option so people can see if you are available.
•Relationship Status: Instead of having just Single and Married, please include In A Relationship and It's Complicated.
•Emoticons: Please include some good looking emoticons so it looks more interesting!
Love the application anyway, but please ensure an update.
