What's New in Version 1.3
- Background notification of incoming chat messages has been removed (however, quick app switching is still supported -- you can leave the app briefly during a chat session and come back to see any messages sent to you)
- Fixes several issues causing periodic crashes (found in submitted crash logs - thanks for sending them in!)
- No longer disconnects from server after some recoverable errors (such as contact-loading errors)
- If a contact does not have a nickname set on the server, Crosstalk now checks the device address book for the contact's name (rather than displaying their address)
- Scrolling performance (especially in the chat center view) is greatly improved
