Always Freezing

Iwanna Alternative

This app has gone downhill in the last year or so. When they initially added gifs, I loved it. A few months into it, however, trying to find gifs, send them, and sometimes even receiving them would cause the app to freeze for several minutes if I didn’t close it completely. The freezing doesn’t just affect kik, but my entire phone. I have to close the app to stop the freezing on kik but my entire phone will remain that way for a few seconds. If I choose to leave kik while it’s freezing and use another app instead of closing the kik, the other app will freeze for a few seconds and completely reload. It’s very annoying and time consuming. Sometimes shutting down kik is useless too because when I reopen the app, it will say “connecting” and then it will shut itself down repeatedly. I usually have to restart my phone to get the app working again. I emailed support about this, but heard nothing. It’s been monnnths.

Occasionally, kik will also say someone is still typing if I return to the app to view a message they sent. The person hasn’t typed since they sent that message but it will show they’re still typing for a few seconds. It’s odd. Lastly, sometimes I’m not notified about messages until I return to the app. It’s as if so muted them but I haven’t. I hope kik actually fixes these issues but I doubt seeing as how I’ve had them for at least 6 months.

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.
