Fix The Big Issue
So it has been maybe 2 months since the problem has shown up. Almost every person I know that has an iPhone has this problem. The problem happens whenever someone (or multiple people) sends a message in a group chat or when someone personally messages me while being closed out of Kik or being inactive on Kik to where the app refreshes on it's own. It also happens if I were to send a person (or a group) and then close the app and then come back and it changes from D from when I sent the message to R when I come back. Same when the app does the refresh. I still get notifications, but I can't see the messages when I open it back up, and when I message them back, they get the message, but it won't show them that I read it. I then have to basically keep Kik open for about 7-10 minutes before messages start to load back up. It's really annoying and it needs to be fixed quick. You guys at Kik need to listen to what all the people are saying and stop letting this issue continue or I pretty much think that people will stop using it completely. Stop doing these pointless updates and fix the real issue, please.
I've been using this app for probably two or three years and I have never had a problem with it until recently. I love this app so much so I would hate to delete it and not use it, but how am I supposed to keep and use an app that doesn't even work? I'm pretty sure this has been going on for probably two months or so yet there has still not been a change. I've read other reviews and spoken to a few of my friends about this issue and all the people I know that have Kik on an Apple device have the same problem. The basic line is, this app crashes way too much, it takes forever to load (if I'm gone for a few hours and come back it can take up to an hour just for all my messages to be received as well as for me to send one myself), and it's overall a mess. I hate it when my app crashes on my phone and then I go back on and realize it's going to take another million years just for it to load. I am unsure on whether or not it's your servers or something else, but there must be something you can do to fix this issue. Kik has always worked for me in the past with the exception of these last few months!
America - Saudi Arabia?
I have been having this serious problem with the kik app that from what I've heard is a common issue arising. I get notifications of my kik messeges but the app won't let me open them ???? If I open the chat it does not show any of the messeges that the chat sent it only shows my messeges with an "s" signally that they never received my messege when in fact they did. I tried restarting and resetting my entire phone. I updated the app and my phone all the way. I deleted apps and closed all background running pages. I tried everything to see if it would help and it didn't. Kik is one of the only means I hve to contact these people and this has been an on going issue for a few days. I live in America. And if this isn't solved soon I will hve to delete this app because right now it's severely useless.
It would be nice if there was an actual way to contact you but to more frustration any emails for help are only responded with a bot that links you back to the page I was already on. This is ridiculous. It's been several days since kik has functioned for me and I can't get any kind of response.
