What's New in Version 3.16.3
Various bug fixes and stability improvements
Have to use this for work, but Slack is better if you’re making a choice.
HipChat on iOS is ok, but there’s no way to set status to “away” without logging out, it hasn’t been updated to look nice on the iPhone X (black bars at top and bottom of the screen), tapping “give feedback” takes you to a desktop-formatted page in a web view that you have to log into to do anything. Logging in is done in the web view, so if you’re using google login, you have to re-enter your google info (and, you’re entering it in a web view, which you shouldn’t do). Tapping the safari button to complete google login there as one should results in a “malformed request” response when you’re sent back to HipChat.
Can’t send pictures.
Since updating to iOS11 it will not allow you to send photos. I waited awhile for an update to fix this, but it still says the photo type is not supported after over a month.
Many other reviewers have covered the notification issues. I give it 2 stars instead of 1 because it doesn't crash and because the desktop MacOS app does.
Caveat: I'm on MacOS 10.9.5; I'm sure it works great on a more recent MacOS.
