What's New in Version 3.16.2
New: Send emoticons faster than ever - tap the smiley face next to your Send button!
New: Tapping a Trello link will open up the Trello app (success)
Fixed: Several bug fixes
The app is very buggy. Sometimes the messages don't get through or it take too long for it send (over 3 minutes without attachments). HORRIBLE. Don't waste your time using this app. Plus, I emailed the support team since there was a "hack incident". I emailed that I was worried about my account, a whole paragraph. Then, they send me a automated email message saying the email was a duplicate and saying it was resolved... They didn't about my worries and marked it as a duplicate. They probably marked it resolved because the hack incident was recovered but that wasn't the focus of my email. Worst support ever. Also, this shows their security is cheap. Don't get this app, you've been warned or else your account info may be hacked, almost what happened to me.
Ok but no notifications
It will show the notifications in the home screen by indicating the number . But when i open the app it will not show any new message notifications across any contacts . So either i have to login to email to know who messaged me or i have to go theough all contacts to see who messaged me . Another one is, No management of contacts. It will display based on adding time
Can't use efficiently
All contacts are listed in the order they are added. There's no easy way to alphabetize or sort your contact list so it's impossible to find a contact in the list. More importantly when a new chat comes in, you get app notification bubble but when you open the app it doesn't show who sent you a chat. I use my email notification to understand who sent a chat so I can then try to find the contact in the list and reply. Soooo bad!
