Amazed at how easy it is to set up
WeChat on iPhone has been indispensible for me in the last 3 years, and their ingenuity never stopped to amaze me. Recently I was a conference in Philly. At one of the sessions, the chair put a 2D bar chart on the the powerpoint slides. Anyone with WeChat can just point to the projection screen (no mater how far you sit from the screen, way in the back), and wa-la, you are presented a survey of topics and instantly see the results on screen!
On a mac laptop, I pleasently found that the set up of WeChat was so easy. Just point my iPhone to the 3D bar chart, and its done! No more typing of ID and password. I love WeChat!
Chat History, Avatars all transferred. Nice!
I was disappointed when I used the web browser version of WeChat as it did not keep track of chat history. But one of my friends said the app version supports chat history. So I gave it a shot today.
I am delighted to report out chat history is indeed here. This is critical for me to exchange research ideas with others, as I can’t type well on the phone.
Another nice surprise is all my avatars got transferred over to my app on the Mac. Nice! Really Nice!.
These are the two most important features I need. I am pleased. :-)
Crash crash crash….
For the phone, this app is amazing. Installing on my MacBook pro, it worked for a long time with no problems. But the new update is unstable. I got it to work a few times and then it would just crash upon opening. So I reinstalled the app on my computer and it worked 1 time. And now just crashes every time. I can’t get it to work even after reinstalling again.
