Just a bit more effort

Messthebeast

The reason this app gets one star is because it doesn't sync up with skype on one's computer. This is the simplest most basic piece of functionality a messaging app should do. If I send a message from my phone to a coworker, I should be able to see it on my computer. If I receive a message on my phone from a coworker, read it, then wish to respond via computer, the message USUALLY DOES NOT SHOW UP ON THE COMPUTER. Highly frustrating, Groupme has been doing this for years guys, literally years.

Edit: So I originally stated the syncing issue was my only qualm. I was sorely misguided. This app has continued to disappoint repeatedly. I’m currently traveling internationally and simply unable to connect via WiFi (note groupme connects rapidly). It’s comical how bad this app is and I laud the developers who created it for how little they cared. I desire to someday care so little about what I do and yet still have it published for thousands to use. It will be the greatest practica joke of my life.

I have written maybe 10 reviews total in my tenure as an Apple user. This app holds first place for two reviews under my name.

Unreliable, poorly designed bucket of frustration

Atreyu8

The product owners for this app must be incompetent, careless, or both. Skype for business is unreliable, slow, confusing (does the crossed out mic that is gray mean mute is on? Oh wait, tap the button and now mute is on... no wait people can hear me... so mute is on when this button is off), annoying because if you are the meeting creator, Microsoft made the decision to unmute you by default when you join the meeting even though all it takes is one experience in a typical conference room to see how people often dial into a conference room phone first so then there is always awful feedback when the meeting creator joins... basically it’s like Microsoft has never even observed how people actually use Skype and instead just insist it should be used their way and could care less. It’s exactly like every other Microsoft product so I’m not surprised, but this one is particularly bad.

Missed messages can’t be seen

Kev Scout

Very useful when it works and that tends to be well when I initiate a conversation but when I miss a conversation, I can’t see what the person said when I click on the message. Where did that missed message go? I can see a preview of it in the main dashboard but when I click the contact, there are no messages. Given the high rating of this app overall I have to believe there is an issue in our corporate setup or something along those lines. I’ll submit a ticket on both sides with screenshots. It looks like my company disabled the ability to select the option to “Save IM conversations in my email Conversation History folder”. Not sure if that is an indication of the potential root cause.
