Used to work great, but I have been unable to open it for the last several weeks on my S10. Uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times with no success. I emailed the developer contact listed with no response. The app would just get frozen on a white screen with the logo in the center when trying to open. This morning I saw there was an update available in Google Play so I updated the app. Same results and behavior. Sounds like many other people are having the same issue.

6/15/22 - app still does not work. How can it take this long for a company to fix an app where almost everyone is having the same problem!?? This app all of a sudden quit working. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. It just keeps freezing and then gives me an error message that the app has stopped working. I've sent numerous bug reports. I can't get past the screen asking me to sync contacts. It's a mess. Messenger lite works fine.

Used to use it regularly, but an update or something happened last weekend that makes it freeze during login on the Pixel 6 Pro. I can't log into it at all. Probably going to have to search for an old apk to make it work. If it was working I'd give it 4 stars. The biggest complaint is the lack of a command to filter messages by status - read/unread. I get a notification that there is a message unread for me and I can not find it. It upsets my OCD when I have a notification that I can not clear!
