Great Potential, a few Issues Pros. Great intuitive user interface. Potential for joining all your chats into one app. Great customer service, they contacted me about an issue I had to try and help resolve it. Cons. Limited amount of options for chat services, such as no hangouts or Skype. Also an issue with group SMS messages. I have an area code different than where I live and this application, only in group messages, replaces friends area codes with mine resulting in me messaging random strangers with similar phone numbers.
Nag screen No way to disable nag screen about running in background. And no, I want my phone to use Android doze, I do not want this app disrupting that. You should let the user have a choice, not pop up every single time that the app is opened to enable a setting that they do not want. Since the developer refuses to provide a fix, I'm uninstalling.
Better than facebook But that's really not hard. I do like it, its the best alternative to facebook messenger i've found. But it often fails to open, becomes unresponsive and hangs before my phone prompts me to force close it. I've reinstalled, same issue. Using Sony Xperia Z5 compact. Does this even after reboot, and no other apps in use.
Has potential The up side: It works. It helps keep everything together well and the merge function is great. The down side: Although it has my main three options it is lacking some other notable names. For WhatsApp you have to delete the WhatsApp app in order to setup the function within Disa. Also unlike the text and Facebook options the messages that were there are not transferred in. Finally couldn't see any backup options. I had WhatsApp performing a daily backup to Google drive.
Like it so far, I'd love more personalisation to the UI, background pics, font etc, dark theme. Tabs would be nice so everything isn't jumbled together ie: 1,2,3 etc. A Skype plug in would be appreciated, I can get rid of three resource heavy apps then and the loathsome FB messenger. 😊
Better than messenger, but still not perfect I use it instead of facebooks messenger, it's better, less bloated, but on my nexus 5X it takes 5-20% of battery every charge cycle,even when not open. I turned off background data, and it became usable, but that's just a crude hack
