Ratings and Reviews
Don’t get told when I have a new message
Have this for work and it was great for a while. Then all of a sudden I stopped getting the option to customize my ringer. Other people with iOS have no issues but me. It sets it to a default ringer that you can barely hear and it only plays once. Have tried contacting customer support and they sent a how to fix sheet. Told me to call with any further issues. Tried to call and got sent straight to voicemail telling me to call during business hours but failed to tell me when business hours are. So far with all this mess I would delete the app if I could but sadly need it for work purposes.
Good app but inconsistent
Worked fine for a while, but I often don’t get audible or visible notifications, text entry area gets covered up by the pop up keyboard, especially in portrait mode, and sometimes it takes a while for message to be received, whether I’m of WiFi of cell. Some (or all) of these issues may be due to OS issues, but they’re frustrating and make for less-than-ideal user experience. We use this instead of pagers, so reliability is important.
Still a lot of bugs
I seem to have to delete and reload the app at least once a month because the line where you type the text reformats, disappears and reappears if one scrolls down. Another issue is the phantom text/notification that also doesn’t appear until one deletes the app and reloads it. It is annoying as well as frustrating that our work place still uses this less than adequate app and I tell most of my associates to text regularly through standard iPhone text messaging instead of TT whenever possible.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
