Customer Reviews

Poor app

As a frequent user of the computer version of this app, for me I thought it would be very useful to have the phone app for when I'm on the move.
However, after using it for a few weeks, I come to find that it is more of a nuisance than a utility. The app takes forever to load messages even if I have good internet connection, I cannot send nor receive photos or other media like I can on a computer and the worst point, it even crashes my brand new iPhone 6.
The app crashes, turns my phone off and won't turn on because it needs to be connected to power even though it is on over 30% battery.
Really disappointed with this app, computer version much more reliable.

Average. Major improvements needed.

This app was great, but went downhill. Firstly, the whole photo sharing experience is ruined, photos don't save when I want them to & 90% of the time won't send to the other person in the chat. Secondly, I have not been receiving notifications from the app, this is horrible as I'm always missing calls as I'm not aware that I'm actually receiving a call! Finally, the app is no longer smooth when running which does affect the overall user experience! Hope improvements are made!!

Problems all over

Do not know where to start. First off all never recieve any notifications. You end up missing calls. The only way you know you had a call is when you go into the app. Also recorded videos sometimes do not get sent, And there is no way of saving them or resending them. Add a new feature where you can resend or forward videos to other contacts. Also improve the notification issue which everyone has. Thank you.
