The last few months it has been at best mildly frustrating and at worst almost unusable, and everything in between. Never works seamlessly. Often can't refresh without closing and reopening every 10 minutes or so. There are days no one can see my albums I shared, and I can't see theirs. I can't even see the photos in my my own albums. 5/25/24: so they permanently deleted my photos in albums. Great. Some were spontaneously taken on the app. Never to be seen again. Thanks!

Banned without knowing what went wrong. The ap kept the money I paid even though I was 5 months into a fully paid subscription. These people are THIEVES!! App has ads to the point that it is extremely annoying to use it. If you delete the ad it comes right back when you refresh the app. A few ads are okay but it is now ridiculous. Lately it has been riddled with Chinese scammers. I get up to 6 or 7 in one day, absolutely unreal! Recently the subscription price has been doubled.

Frustrating update!! Installed the app update and now the app crashes frequently while typing messages. The feature to show pics received is also gone. I hope this can all be fixed soon. Wish I hadn't updated it. Very frustrating! UPDATE: The main issue I had was resolved with an update a couple days ago. Thanks! Unfortunately the feature to display pics received still is gone.
