What's New in Version 2.4.5
Good idea but not complete not reliably syncing
If this app fully synced "both" directions with the phone and other devices it would be great. But it doesn't sync outgoing messages sent from another device or computer to the native text thread on the phone. And I believe texts within this app are only saved 90 days. Those two items take a potential 5 star app to 1 if used for business, maybe a 2 if only used for fun. Anything less than a full sync and control over when messages are deleted make the app unreliable. If using just for fun, there are many other better messengers that have no tie in to Verizon. Seems like an easy fix to make without forcing users to change the default native texting app on the phone.
Good, needs some work
Update: My notifications work now, but I still occasionally miss text messages that I know were sent because I have 2 phones. I get them on my other phone. Not sure why this is happening. Added a star, but am hoping they can fix the missed messages issue.
I don't seem to be getting notifications on my phone, even though they are turned on. I guess this was as if the most recent update. Not sure what's going on. I've rebooted my phone and uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and also ensured notifications are on. Quite frustrating.
A rotary telephone is a better way to communicate
I have never rated an app. It either works well or it doesn't. I don't have time to both expressing my opinion, which means close to zero. However it's 1:00 AM, my wife shot me down and I can't sleep. So here is my first review.
This app is by far the most awful development I have ever seen. It looks like it really wants to do some cool stuff and it tries so hard, but it just can't get past the initial intro and keeps buffering. A 3rd grader could have done a better job. Whoever the mindless wonder is that approved the release must have taken their SAT exam with a crayon.
I feel I am owed money for my time. Fix this garbage or take it down. Have a nice night...
