What's New in Version 8.7.0
Exciting improvements under the hood!
Grouping Needs Improvement
I've noticed groups only go to 50 and many times there are inactive accounts used to keep a chat full or just plain out didn't leave and left Kik. As a result, you can't join a chat you want. It would be VERY helpful to simply increase the size/amounts of people who can join a chat by either 25 making it 75 or by another 50 making it 100. Again, this would be extremely helpful and would allow you to be in a group chat you like but is full off of inactive accounts. PLEASE HELP! I also feel that if you were previously an admin but left in past updates, you should be given the option of being admin again. People who were banned even though they temporarily stopped being admin and came back should only be banned for a certain amount of time. The default time being perhaps a month and to have the option to increase/decrease the time. Also, the older the admin is in the chat, OVERALL (The longest while being an admin/not admin and time spent in a group chat despite leaving), should be the top admin of a group chat. This top admin should be able to remove other admins or ban them along with deranking them. There should be an option to un-admin somebody if they are inactive and give the spot to someone else who is more active. This would make the app a 5 star app!
Good, but needs a lot more improvements
This app is useful for communicating with friends when you have a wifi connection, but thats pretty much it. I have been using the Kik app for 4 years now and I was waiting for certain problems to be fixed but it never happened. I have been talking to my friend in Florida for a day or two and the app was working fine, but the next day when I tried to send a message it just stayed on "S". I get it Kik has a lot of messages to send to different people at multiple times, but this shouldn't be affecting your overall experience. When a message is on "S" the receiver my not even receive the message until 3 days later. Kik also needs to work on there log in and log out situation. The only way you can log out and back in on Kik is if you erase the entire app and re-download it. It's a waste of time for people who really don't have time and it makes the creators seem like they were too lazy to add in a log out button. Also, has some slight bugs that needs to be fixed. The only way this app is worth downloading is if you don't have your friends numbers and can't text them, because texting is better than this app can ever do.
~If the Kik creators fix all of the things that I listed in this review then I will go back and write a good review.
This app is wonderful, but
It's replaced texting for me, if I don't want someone to have my number I'll just give them my kik. There's plenty of privacy with kik, so if someone gets ahold of you through it you can report/block them. Also great for long distance relationships or friendships, not much data is used if you're on wifi and there's no texting rates like normal. It's all free. The group chats are great too, I love the ability to mute them when you're too busy to reply or when you don't want to be spammed.
A small suggestion, made kik more customizable. Keep the chat bubble colors. Allow different fonts and text colors. Hell it would be nice to have access to color schemes for the app itself, sometimes the all white background is too bright at times, I'd love to be able to change it to a darker color. I'm sure other people who strain their eyes like I do, agree as well.
All in all great app, I can't wait for future updates!!!
