Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good, with one complaint
This app works well and is excellent for large group chats for the most part. It’s easy to switch between groups and I’ve never had a problem with messages coming through or notifications. It’s been wonderful! HOWEVER, I really wish members could comment on a post. Instead, important messages get lost in a sea of responses and different topics so every conversation is an endless cycle of scrolling. If I want to look back at what someone said a few days ago (like when and where to meet, for instance) I have to scroll through every single message (and “lol”), instead of things being neatly nested so I can just scroll through topics. Other times, if other people start talking and I miss it I end up scrolling, scrolling, scrolling, scrolling back to see what on earth they’re even talking about and honestly, by the time I find it I usually just don’t even care anymore, I’m so numb by the search for the one little comment that started the whole conversation.
I’ve tried using other apps because of this issue, but this app really is superior performance wise, except for this ONE thing.
Developer Overlords, PLEASE, please let us thread comments so we can stop this endless scrolling!! I can’t take it much longer! But nice job on the app overall. There’s a reason I’ve held out so long.
Group name in notifications
Could y’all make it so that we can see which group a person belongs to in the notifications area? Specially the lock screen? Currently, if a GroupMe notification alerts your device, you only see the person’s name and not which group the person is from. It would be SOOO helpful, if I was able to see which group a person was chatting from without opening the app.
For users involved in several groups with similar people, it’s critical to know which group the notification came from ASAP. iMessage has this feature and it is a lifesaver when you need to respond quickly.
It’s like knowing it’s a friend from ‘hot yoga group’ asking about the last minute location change and not someone in your ‘biology study group’ asking were class is. Imagine being in different groups with people who have the same name! It’s so confusing when you read a message from John thinking it’s John your work supervisor when it’s really your best friend John sending you a picture of the roach he found in the bathtub. (Bc you cannot see pictures in the notifications which is another comment altogether).
I still love this app! Best group messaging there is!
Great App, but could be even better
This is a great app that I use every single day for a bunch of different group messages, but I feel like there are a few ways it could be improved to make it even more useful/ easier to use:
Being able to view a picture from a notification without having to go into the app. It is very annoying to have to pull out my phone and go into the app to see the picture especially when I have an Apple Watch.
It would be great to have an Apple Watch app to accommodate the iOS app. Along with being able to view a picture right from the notification this would be extremely useful with the new Apple Watch with cellular connectivity. Imagine if you are out going for a walk or run with just your Apple Watch Series 3 and someone sends you a picture. With the current system you would have to wait until you got home to view the picture. Another nice feature for the Apple Watch app would be the ability to see past messages instead of just the ones from notifications that go away when you tap on them. This would be just like how the messages app works on my Apple Watch.
