In the last week the app has been failing to notify me when I have new messages or it let's me know a full hour after another user has sent me a message. Profiles and many other functions are extremely slow to load when I toggle between them. I'm also running into issues sending messages , 6 out of every 10 messages I send come back with a sending error forcing me to have to close the app completely restart it several times before I can send the message. There are a lot of bugs in the app

Outrageous!! You guys are getting ridiculous with charging 💰. Now you can't view the last person who viewed you if you are a non-paying member and you can't even view a person's album within your message history if you already chatted with that person before if you were sent a certain number of albums after that! 1st off people on the app suck! Not in a good way, and now you want to charge for everything! What good is the damn ads that take up your whole damn phone then!!!! Out of control!

If I could give this app less than a star I would. Ads are non-stop and pop up whenever they feel like it (as you're scrolling, typing a message, whenever!), you can no longer view the last person that viewed you...and if you wanna upgrade to a paid version to try to eliminate ads or have some of the old features that were once free, the prices are ridiculous!
