Constantly crashing and have to restart the app so that I can send or receive messages. Also, some of the ads freeze up the app and cause it to crash. It gets old having to restart the app when you are trying to reply to messages or having an ad pop up every 5 seconds. Also, what's with charging for everything if you have the advertising paying to advertise to keep it free? You are just milking people.

Can't stand the intrusive ads and not to mention tap my screen and internet browser opens automatically with an ad I don't want. The most recent update really screwed up. Now, profile photos and photos that I get sent no longer load, and I can't even see them. Not to mention, the update overrode my notification sound settings for no reason. On top of that, you have users that clearly violate the TOS and yet nothing is done about any of it.

Absolutely criminal ad practices, they will open the ads which lead sketchy sites on their own in an absence of human input, play sounds when you've disabled the app making sounds at all, and is just generally a pain in a way I am not ok with. If the app functioned better I'd feel better about paying to escape the ads, but the app feels like a bad habit when I'm using it, and is just inconvenient. It's also very hard to keep track of people.
