Customer Reviews


I get it. You have this cool app and you think that everyone would benefit from using. Let’s not even discuss that you basically forced us into it even though many of us were pretty happy with the Facebook messages as they were. What gets really annoying is installing this and then the application really being insistent that I turn on notifications. This is my mobile phone and I use it for work. The last thing I want is a bunch of pop-ups or buzzes or phone rings just because somebody messaged me in Facebook. Guess what, you are not a chat application, you’re just for Facebook. I don’t want to import all of my contacts in my phone list s stop pestering me about it. And the application doesn’t work too bad. It’s just all the added BS that’s included.

Oh, and by the way, what is this app say for users over four years old? You can’t even get Facebook if you’re 13.

I like it!

There has been a freezing problem and the app isn’t as fluent as it use to be. Whenever I go into the app, it takes sooo long for the app to actually start and refresh before I could actually see my messages. And when it’s done loading everything, it also takes quiet some time for it to go I to the message. Same exact long process of loading happens when o back out and want to to go to other messages in my inbox. So there is a lag issue, or a freezing issue. Sometimes it just doesn’t want to load any of my messages at all and it stays in the refreshing phase. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it and it still happens. Not sure what to do but ask for a fix and or update on this bug.

Terrible app for the amount of money this company has

Loading time is awful. Even while other apps are loading very quickly with more data usage on my phone, this app does not seem to be able to load simple text conversations even after several minutes of waiting. The gif and smiley features are subpar, the archiving is confusing, and if you aren’t friends with the user messaging you, there’s no alert about a received message! Even worse, the VOIP call doesn’t let you adjust the call volume! This app should be the premier messaging platform, but instead it is just a frustration. Shame on you. Your customer base demands more than this hot pile of garbage.
