Customer Reviews

Another negative review. Ceasar slots

I lost my entire progression on Ceasar Slots and has juts put 20 bucks in the game when Facebook decides the only way I can have my game back is to go through them. I never had Facebook nor do I ever want it. I’m just into gaming now ever time I play there is a glitch keeps popping up Facebook and not my game. I can be playing and it pops up randomly I guess Facebook misses me. This should be illegal for them to take over your game. Now they just did it to wizard of Oz. Dammit I just want to be left alone to play my games. Help????????????

it was great

I NEED HELP. messenger used to be one of the only apps i used to text, but a couple days ago it started glitching. every time i open it, it immediately crashes. i tried closing out of the app, restarting my phone multiple times, then i deleted the app and redownloaded it to make sure it was updated, then i even updated my iphone software to ios 11 in case that was the problem. i’ve tried everything i can think of, and i know it’s not my phone because everything else is working perfectly. i filed a report on facebook and i looked through the help center and nothing is addressed. would love to keep using this app but i can’t even open it anymore.

I don’t want to turn on Notifications

I need to have Messenger to view Facebook messages on my phone, which is fine. But what’s unacceptable is how many times the app harassed me to turn on notifications.

Every single time I open the app it gives me a full screen message demanding I turn them on. There’s only “Remind me Later”, no option to dismiss permanently. It makes the app unbelievably annoying to use.

No other messaging app I’ve used displays this level of harassment. Quite frankly, I’m shocked that this doesn’t violate Apple’s Terms of Service regarding app behavior. There’s a reason iOS only allows the in app prompt once and this feels like clear circumvention of that limit.

Oh and why don’t I want notifications on? Because messenger started sending notifications not only when I received a new message, but randomly throughout the day. I don’t want to be pinged whenever the Messenger developers decide they have something for me to read. This abuse of the notifications system to send me notifications when I have no new messages is unacceptable behavior for a messaging app.
