The main app is good and does what it says as advertised. However, the backup feature doesn't work. I selected "Android backup" which is supposed to backup my account "when the phone is idle and plugged in". Except that it's been over 1.5 weeks and it still hasn't backed up. There needs to be a way to force a backup or to schedule it at a particular time. I even went into my phone settings to stop the OS from shutting the app down to save battery. When this gets fixed, I'll be happy to give the app a 5 star review, but without a backup it makes it very hard to use.
I love this app, it allows me to stay in touch with friends all over the world who cannot access Line of Skype. But I tried to open the app and check my messages this morning but I kept getting the "Damaged database or incomplete data. Cannot launch." warning, even after reinstalling the app...
Disappointed - I still use whatsapp that means this app has failed for me. If after purchase I have to market my friends then I stand solo with a purchase and the only thing I get is the developers messages. On purchase I did a test run usage with my wife just to keep our messages private unfortunately those messages only reach her after 2 days. I believe this app should be free for download and the developers can monetize service packages. But till then I think getting a refund seems a smart option.
It seems pretty secure to me and the media coverage. I'd complain about the closed source-ness. But it's already not bad.
Had a problem where some messages would not get delivered in a timely fashion, but following the steps in the detailed FAQ on the subject seems to have taken care of the problem.
What's wrong? "Damaged database or incomplete data. Cannot launch" Ok and now?? Uninstalled reinstalled, but without a backup since I have my new phone. Useless, uninstalled, WhatsApp will do somehow.
