Few small tweaks/recommendations
Great app. I've used it for years, usually for communication with my gaming communities, and people I don't know well enough to want to exchange social medias. My personal list of changes I would like to see are, first, an extra button to confirm video calls. Hitting this button sometimes gives me a heart attack, when I'm out in public, or not presentable for camera. A simple "Would you like to start a call with _?" Would do wonders. My second change, Kik camera. It has NEVER worked for me. I've always had to go out of the app and use my iPhone camera, then relaunch and send that photo. Kik camera sometimes sends multiple photos even though I only took one, and sometimes freezes and crashes the app altogether. My third and final change would be an extra setting for previews. When you turn on previews, you can view part of the message you're sent as well as the sender. I want this; but I also do NOT want whatever they wrote to be displayed to my nosy friends and family. Just a push notification saying "New Kik message from _!", added to the settings would make me ecstatic.
New bug in the latest update is that chat bubbles or pictures won't disappear behind the top bar where it has your chat name, it goes behind it but then shows up again where my battery, time, and cell service are listed. It looks really sloppy and makes it hard to read the battery or service/wifi bars. Exiting the chat and going back in doesn't do anything. Another bug is that if I switch to another app, get a message and NOT press the notification, then switch back to the app, the screen freezes and the new bubble won't show up or the most recent bubbles will be chopped into little slices or disappear entirely. I then have to exit the chat and and enter the chat again. So in short, the first bug you need to reboot the app, the second one just needs to exit the chat and go back in. Both just look silly and impractical. Overall, I've been pretty happy with this latest update.
As someone who drops their phone..
A lot. I can say that the video chat button is not in a good place. I always drop my phone on my face or I catch it and I hit the video chat button/switch. And then it takes it a minute to load before I can even turn it off. If the button stays there at least make it to where there's a conformation request. Because I can't even video chat some of the people I talk to because they can't update the app and then there's just a big notification on both chats saying I tried to video call them but they need to update. Then they type back "why are you trying to video chat me?" And it's rather awkward. Also, if there could be a "night mode" or something that would be great. Other than that I can't really think of anything else wrong. So keep up the good work. (If there is even anyone reading these)
