constantly crashes. literally non-stop, every like 10 seconds after opening the app. it's quite annoying. only reason i give it an extra star instead of 1 star because it's better than the other rocketchat app in the sense that the fundamental functions of the app work; in experimental, i don't get duplicated messages, some posts just don't show up on the other app for whatever reason. however videos uploaded to the server don't work on here but it does on the other app.

Current bug (I know experimental so just thought I'd report) seems to have an issue with input sometimes. Keyboard still types but interface does not show text appearing. Also send button does not work when this occurs. Hitting it multiple times seems to send a message when this happens but the message does not show as sent in the interface till the application is restarted.

The main rocket chat app hangs a few seconds after launch and is unusable - it's been like that for a while now. Thought I'd give this version a go instead. No hang anymore, but it crashes every time I receive a message. Very frustrating.
