What's New in Version 5.7.517
Promising, but very crashy
This app crashes all the time for no apparent reason. It'll just be sitting there doing nothing and it'll just crash. It recognizes it and sends a report, but it's not getting any better with updates. I find myself trying to be very gentle with it and not to ask it to do complicated stuff, but it doesn't really help. It's just very unstable.
I'm also hopeful that the VOIP support will become better over time. It constantly tells me that I have a poor connection when I'm "dialed into" a meeting over VOIP and the outgoing audio tends to be inconsistent.
All in all, this app has a lot of promise, but I feel nervous relying on it because it just doesn't deliver. I use my iPad almost exclusively in a business environment when attending meetings and the lack of stability in Lync is a big downside to that working model.
I want to love this app....
This app would be great if it didn't constantly lose my conversations. If you leave the app and get a notification of a new message, the app loses the message when you click on the notification. Sort of defeats the purpose of a notification huh.
Can't sign in.
I'd love to see what this looks like, but it times out during sign in every time.
