Buggy, and missing major features.
As others say it is buggy, and does crash often, however it is packed with some features that other apps just simply don't have, like the ability to transfer a call from the app, inside or outside the office.
It really annoys me that after 10 minutes of your phone being locked, you will no longer get call inbound calls. I know this is an iOS thing, but being a developer, I also know that there are ways to bypass the restriction.
It also is missing some major features, like vibrate on incoming call. If your silent switch is on... The only way you would know a call is coming in is if you were staring at your phone. It's also missing the ability to tell when you switch from Wifi to cellular data, and automatically reconnect itself.
Looks great... Works not so good
Wouldn't work at all till I gave permission to access my contacts... Just crashed constantly.
Won't register any account unless I clicked on the account in the account listing so that it has a star-default next to it even if there only one account setup... No big issue, just quirky.
Once I did fix the above I was able to make a call... Still testing further ... and having funky reliability issues (old app was fairly stable in same environment although I'm looking forward to this update to make things more 3cx specific)
As of version 3.0 this app is not stable enough to be used. It will work fine as long as it is in the foreground, but once in the background it will no longer ring inbound calls after 5-10 minutes have passed. And no, this is NOT due to the wifi dropping out when the phone goes to sleep. Ironically, I have found the BRIA softphone app to be a significantly better client for the 3CX phone system on iPhone.
