This dang ol thing rules. Whenever my good buddies wants to go down to our local parking lot and scout tail from our truck beds, we like to stay in touch using this application. It's also helpful whenever we feel like debating string theory and don't want to meet up to do so. Toby Keith forever.
This app was actually one of the most helpfull ones on the play store. I am a freshmen at a highschool and I play for the JV basketball team. My coach and other players in the team use this app to help with our game notifications and last minute changes to practice schedules. It was essentially a group text, but since players on the team have different types of phones, we couldn't just setup a group text. The app is easy to use, and easy to learn hiw to get started and I couldn't imagine what basketball practices would be like without it.
Administrator needs more authority (i.e. ability to delete messages and restrict postings from regular group members during certain times or ability to turn off/on). Also, if someone is going to an event do not create a seperate thread - access who is or isn't going by clicking on the event. A search field would be nice to locate a message lost in conversations
There were a couple things that bugged me like no being able to delete old groups and just recently I can't figure out how big chunks of my conversations just disappeared. It must have been a bug so I just uninstalled and reinstalled GroupMe. For everything else, it's pretty great.
Update 2/7/17: My group chats have disappeared randomly. Please fix this! I use GroupMe for several group chats but it would be nice if you included some other features to make it a go to group app. I would like to see a poll where a group can vote on something and not have to read everyone's separate opinion. I love that the calendar is there.
I really do like this app. I did have some concerns about uploading pictures however. Sometimes, they don't download, so I'm left with an empty image. For my line of work, I need to see the pictures. But Everything else is great! I'd recommend this to everyone who's self employed!
Now change a group's owner from right inside the app!
- New groups with no messages were being put at the bottom of the Recents list

- Fixed a crash that might happen if someone was typing when you started the app
- Fixed a common crash when sending messages with a weak network
