The app has issues, but overall okay. Sometimes the messages don't send, you don't get notifications sometimes either and you'll get spam bots here and there, but my main issue is the "Explore" feature and how far people are. When you use "Explore" feature or just scrolling "Nearby", you'll get people that are close, but most of them are further out than 10 miles around you.

This app is nothing but trash for trashy people. Sometimes when you want to send a message you have to close and reopen the app several times and forget about sending pics most of the time and almost never a video will go through. The developers will give lip service to everyone saying that you're making improvements but it never happens. There's better apps out there with less bots

Regardless of internet connectivity and data taps and messages rarely send without having to open and close the app several times. The chat backup barely works, I've had to initiate it several times in order to fully and properly restore all chats- and that's anytime I reinstall the app. The linking capabilities with Facebook and Spotify never work, what a stupid way to link an FB profile by using your name instead of a link. This app is only good for its ubiquity and absolutely nothing else.
