WIDGET GONE✖ I've NEVER used your internet call etc. Ok, no Widget anymore - a heads up would have meant I wouldn't have updated this app. Sure widget isn't very useful - but that's one less app to have to click on to see details of forgotten last messages.
WIDGET UNAVAILABLE I would have given this five stars if you did not remove the widget without telling anyone about it
Update: No more widget! No pop up notification/reply? I love this app! My one pet peeve is that the pop up notification to reply isn't there anymore and I loved that feature on the old GTalk. If you bring it back I'll give you that last star! :-) That's all that's missing and then this would be the most perfect app. :-) UPDATE!: New update removed the widget. 😦 😤why?! Bring it back. I don't want to hate this app... But it's getting harder to like it.
New version killed the widget Since I used the widget extensively and it does not work in version 5, this is officially the worse update yet. I am currently looking for a way to get back to version 4 or will just roll back to the factory installed version 2 and disable updates.
Messages don't send when on Wi-Fi Not sure why but SMS messages rarely send when I'm on a Wi-Fi network. Not sure why it matters but once one doesn't send any message attempts after first failed attempt never go out. Even when switching off Wi-Fi. I have to restart phone to get messaging to work.
