I love the concept but the app is glitchy. First i can't type in the app because it will freeze so I have to type the message on another app and copy paste it to bottled which is very inconvenient. My biggest complaint thpugh is the option to add photos on my diaries keeps glitching and saying "unlock for error." I tried unlocking through the merchant ship and it also says error. I uninstalled the app and re-installed and it still didn't work. I have emailed about this and received no response.

Too expensive. The cost is discouraging open communication. Fewer people keep bottles because they're more busy collecting enough to reach the world, which takes forever to accomplish. Also, the bug causing the text for the bottles to be hidden behind the keyboard is still there. Please fix. Furthermore, there should be an option to copy and release a bottle so a person can keep a nice message even if they don't want to communicate. Finally, an option to reply directly to a bottle.

This has never been the greatest app out there but it was sufficient and mostly worked. But after the last two updates...sure it looks pretty...but I am not getting notifications of bottles. But worse than that I will get a notification of a message but when I click on the chat...it doesn't show the message that I can see in the preview. Sometimes it will show up if I leave the chat open long enough but most times it just disappears. If I can't see my messages what's the point of the app?
