Better than the rest... But sadly that's not saying much. Still a bit clunky, uses battery pretty quickly, and doesn't have a good BG mode. Also when I send messages, it shows up duplicated twice for me (not for others though).
Good app but hammers data and battery! The excessive background data usage (250 Meg in one day) really needs to be sorted out. Also a bug when posting. The post displays twice on the phone. A cool enhancement would be to allow me to be in more than one room at the same time.
Good, not great Hard to argue with it when its free, but there are just a couple little things that don't work right. Often displays double posts when you chat, even though it doesn't actually send double posts.
Shows double messages When i send it shows double messages. Seems to me that when i send it puts one instance when i send, and then it receives the same message from campfire, but doesn't detect that it's my message. Should be a fairly easy fix.
Not great, but best around This app has issues, but no other has worked better for me.
Good for free often fails to reconnect Would be 5 stars if it reconnected reliably.
