Small Font Font is small. and compact. I still prefer Kik as it is not connected to my main, personal email account for the last 21+ years. I think AIM is OK as web browser chat platform, but not so great as an Android app. Update, 9/2016---Bigger font is good, but it's only one size bigger. AIM to SMS is great. Getting more spam from AOL these days.
Nothing has been fixed Since the last update back in, what June? I have been unable to silence the sound notification on the app. And I'm not dumb, I know where it is on the app and if I could show you that I have it selected I would, but I can't. Not only that but now I won't get alerts for a message until hours if not days later. It will suddenly update to show over 400+ messages that I was unaware of. And currently the stream is gone. Don't ask me to send a message of what is wrong, I did that 3x and nothings been fixed.
Unreliable For all the updates it has undergone, there's no excuse for it to be working so unreliably. I've been disconnected multiple times only for the app to seem unable to reconnect me. There should be no reason why I should go through the trouble of uninstalling and reinstalling an app just to log in.
No sound, messages disappear My sound doesn't work even though it's on, and my messages dissapear before I can even read them causing people to resend them. People are getting irritated that I can't hear them message me and they have to resend messages because aim tells me they are there but they aren't.
Bad Update Nothing broken was fixed. New notifications are horrible. Only way to stop pop up notifications seems to be to mute everything entirely with "quiet hours". Can't we just have the yellow running man back? So many missing messages all the time. Have to close out and reconnect to see everything. Please focus on fixing what's broken instead of adding new features.
Can't log in. Can't remember my password from 15 years ago and when I go to "forgot password" all I get is an error page that says "your sign in got derailed" with no mechanism for retrieving my password. I'm assuming this app exists for the purpose of new users considering that most people probably forgot their passowords by now. Don't see how that is useful considering we have facebook and dozens of other ways to communicate with people. Hmm, no wonder aol became useless a long time ago.
