Every new update makes the UI layout worse in my opinion. I liked this app because it looked like regular texts for android users with a few extra features. The new "react" feature makes it annoying to read new messages because I'm always rereading the "double tap to ❤️" line, and then once a message is liked, it takes up way more space than it used to. Maybe some people will like the change but I wish we had the option to keep likes/reactions off to the side. That was way more intuitive.

Welp. Decreasing my previous rating. UI has gotten a lot clunkier and inconsistent in the last few weeks. The notifications hve beens crewed up for months too. When you tap a notification, it doesn't go to the message it just launches the app to wherever you were last and everytine you change pages (like going back to the home screen so you can manually select the feed that has a new message) it re-pops up the notification so that it is blocking the most recent feed.

Functionality has fallen off a cliff over the past couple of months-- messages, likes, and photos require closing and reopening the app to show up. Even then, they (photos especially) typically take several hours to load. The latest update seems to have exacerbated these issues. The app is nearly unusable in its current state.
