Unusable with long conversations


This app worked well for about a month, but with long conversation history it began to lag. Within the last week or so, messages - especially multiple messages or ones sent as the same time as the receiver sends a message - will cause the app to slow significantly, delaying delivery of messages or not sending them at all. The keyboard will lag when typing or not show your input until about 15 seconds later, while completely freezing the screen. I’ve tried restarting my phone, force closing the app, force closing other apps, but nothing seems to work. Love the interface and capabilities of the app, but will be choosing something else until these issues are fixed.

Hi phantogrammed,

Thanks for flagging. This is an issue we know about, and is in the queue for a fix.

All the best,

Good quality calls/ Bad user experience and interface.


The quality of the calls is unmatched even with moderate carrier signal strength; I love it. However, the user interface/ experience is irritating and needs too much improvement; The app for example doesn’t let you manage contacts in any way (sorting, grouping/lists). Renaming contacts is also key feature for me since for organizational purposes which is either not found as a feature or I’m finding it very hard to find how. I hope changes will come soon.

Hi TycoonJé,

Thanks for writing and for your feedback. I've shared it with the team, and it's something we're keeping in mind for the future.

All the best,

Please fix.


My entire team and I had convinced our families to switch over, and now we’re going to have to abandon it. I don’t know if it’s original issue or what but one of our team members, is even deployed right now and had to abandon as well. The features especially regarding links, or unmatched by any of the others out there. Conversely both ends are not receiving messages and the handshakes are not reliable. I hope this is resolved soon. Until then I cannot use this. I would be glad to help load logs if needed.
