What's New in Version 8.7.0
Exciting improvements under the hood!
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.
I've been using kik for about 4 years and it basically replaced texting for me. I feel a lot more comfortable giving out my kik instead of my number. The fact that conversations/group chats can be muted now is gr8 because my biggest problem used to be having friends constantly spam me 😂😂. I feel their should be an option to report users/inappropriate profile pictures. I've received way to many threats 😴 via kik and I'm kind of tired of seeing nudes as someone's profile pic. I realize the app says 17+ download but we all that people 12-16 are using kik as well (I'm under 17 myself😂) things like profile pictures containing nudity should not be allowed 🙅🏽 Also wish there was an option that prevented you from being added to random group chats (like only people in your contacts can add you to group chats).
Apps age problem!
Kik is great. It's an awesome way to talk to your friends and family. However the youngest to get Kik is 13 so question is why must you be 17+ to download the app. This is seriously ANNOYING! My device is restricted and it isn't fair how I am about to be 14, and I can't use this app. I don't do anything bad it's just because of this one kid who she doesn't want me to talk to because he's dangerous but I blocked him and I never even want to talk to him. She claims she trust me but all I see is her not being trustful and letting me download this app...can you please fix this problem?? And if anyone says maybe you are to young to get this app. I'm not, it's it's that one kid and she doesn't want to get rid of the restrictions because of the other apps so please Kik since the youngest you should b is 13+ then LET the app be downloaded by 13+, not 17+ because it's not fair for other people who are 13 through 16
