Horrible app

This app is so buggy. I give it ONE STAR ONLY BECAUSE THE APP STORE won't let me give it ZERO! The moment someone makes an app that will stay reliably connected to google chat, this app will be history. And I'm not sure why they can't fix it.

I have to keep Google hang out active to ensure that I'm staying connected. This app appears to stay online but it really is not staying online and it appears that messages are going to people but they are not getting them nor am I getting messages from anyone.

And today I realized that this app does not work with Siri anymore. It only allows you to speak using Siri for a few characters and then it stops. Every other application allows me to talk as long as I want. This app dies at about five words every time. This is even more irritating than the fact that I have to continually log out and back on to make sure it's staying connected.

Come on folks. Fix this. It's embarrassing now.


Used to be decent but is now very buggy. Crashes all the time, emoticons randomly don't show up, text input box sometimes disappears, signs you out without notifying you so you can't send or receive messages until you go to settings and change your status manually. I have to kill it and restart it all the time. I'd hoped some of those chronic issues would be fixed in the latest update but the only thing that's changes is the graphic design. Useless!! Now that a Google Hangout is available I'm switching to that. Don't waste your money on Beejive.

Soul-suckingly awful

I downloaded this app for iPhone and wasn't nuts about it so I deleted it. Now my gchat NEVER, EVER EVER signs out. I've gone into my gmail and closed all other sessions, I've deleted every trace of the app that I'm able to on the phone, I've hidden it in iTunes, I've restarted multiple times and changed passwords, but this janky POS app somehow manages to keep me signed in and "available" at all hours of the day. So thanks, Beejive, for completely ruining my gchat experience and ability to not look like a dick to all my contacts who continue to wonder why I don't respond to their chats.
