Big issue with this version

Top U.S. Fan

I have to give this a so-so rating because, while I've had little issue with Kik in the past, I detest this version's new autocorrect! It never properly autocorrects the last word of any message you type even if it is showing the correction on-screen, and will simply send the misspelled word. Often, more than just the last word is affected. There are times when entire sentences will show up rife with errors even after autocorrect 'pretended' to change the spellings for you and showed as corrected before you hit send. Either this is some cruel joke, or something was bugged in the process of implementing the new update. I also preferred the old greener logo, but that's not part of the rating. Just my personal preference. Lol

So yes, autocorrect isn't a huge issue on the surface, but it's really getting to me and affecting my overall experience, even making me consider not using the app anymore. Why? I rely heavily on autocorrect since I type fast. Sure, I can learn to slow down, and I tried that, but like I said, I've found the autocorrect LIES to you even when it shows as fixed. So the issue will never get better even if I try to adapt, which is disheartening at best. I'm very displeased with this version.

Why are there so many bugs?

Troubleshooting with the app has completely crashed for me an my friend almost, and it’s become very annoying. Our messages will get stuck on Sent and it’s a gamble if they will arrive or not to the chat, and half of the messages never display Delivered and that’s also a gamble for if they actually arrived or not. We’ll get notification sounds for new messages and once we open that chat that we guessed it “arrived” in, it’s not there most of the time and we have to send the message again. I’ve tried doing what the help articles for Connection troubleshooting and Red Recipients along with the Notifications article which are all the same thing, but they’ve done literally nothing. The only noticeable difference was at the beginning whenever one of my messages displayed Delivered, but it never happened again and it appeared to only have worked for the first two minutes. I’ve had to redownload the app as well, which didn’t work in the slightest either. I can’t keep turning my phone on and off every two minutes in the hopes that my messages will actually reach my friends. Please make an effort into fixing this.

I'm Disappointed – Again.

Video chat isn't working again... It was fixed for a little, then it happened again. Furthermore, now Kik doesn't show "Camera" under pictures that I've taken on Kik.
Problem #1: I have been trying to start a video chat over and over, and it keeps saying "Failed to Join Video Chat" because of some "Problem Connecting to Network." Except my network is still perfectly fine. It's letting me send messages in a fraction of a second, so why does Kik suddenly say that my network connection is bad only when I want to start a video chat? The video chat feature was working perfectly fine yesterday, so why isn't it working now? Furthermore, why is it saying that there's something wrong with my own personal network? That's not right. Please fix this, because I'm positive that it's not my network that's acting up - it's the Kik app that's acting up.
As for the while camera photo thing, this is brand new to me. I've never had this issue in the past, but ever since today's update, it's happening to me. I was reading up on the update history of Kik and it says this was fixed in the past, but guess what? It's happening again and it needs to be fixed again...
