Sucks my BlackBerry STV100 power, battery and resources. Once running, you're phone is not responsive anymore. I missed lots of calls because it can't open the phone app to answer. It has to be plugged to charger all the time when this thing is running.
I upgraded my phone to Android 7.0, now jabber will no longer open. Message says (presence service cannot complete a request). I have reset it, uninstalled it and reinstalled it and can't get jabber to work on 7.0.. I submitted a problem report as well.
I've been using a Nexus 6P for quite some time and the phone portion of Jabber hasn't worked for quite some time even though my communications team assures me I'm setup properly. Today, 3/30, I tried again after Jabber recently updated and everything works! The comms team assures me nothing has changed on their end so I think credit is due to Cisco. Yay! As promised, upgrading from 2 to 5 star rating!
I have a working installation, unlike others, but I still don't like this app. Kludgy. Can't IM to more than one other person, unlike Skype, which my company used before, which can support any number of people. For more than two people, have to fire up Webex-how kludgy is that? Looks like sophomore, non-CS programming class. Does not natively log into a server-puts up an instance of Chrome, which does not work from inside company intranet, so have to disable wi-fi, log in, kill Chrome, then turn wi-fi back on again. And Chrome has to be killed because it and Jabber together suck power fairly mightily and the jabber login process leaves Chrome running, doing nothing. Once Jabber's running, and assuming you want to talk to only one person at a time, it's OK. But, jeez, it's kludgy. Wouldn't use it except, from the evidence, it's cheaper for corporate, so bad is the enemy of good.
Phone services constantly disconnects and has trouble reconnecting Edit: not sure if a server side update was pushed but it has been running a lot better the last few weeks. No issues at all.
Half finished. Different versions of the app on various platforms don't sync up things like numbers of missed calls. Level of integration with desktop phone is minimal - e.g. Do NotDisturb on phone has no effect on the app's status.
