This app is terrible...we use at our org and the concensis is not to use the app. It will disconnect by itself and then you won't get notifications or if you do get a notification and you click on the message to reply the send button will be greyed out because it lost connection. Needs yo be rewritten with push notifications to resolve instead of polling the server for new message
Awful, just awful. The notification system sends multiple notifications for the same channel, even while you are you looking at the channel with your screen on. That's only of course when notifications are even working. Requires an always on connection to receive notifications which drains your battery and has no real push notification system. The whole HipChat ecosystem seems like a complete afterthought and could probably be implemented better by a team of novice coders in a few weeks.
This app is a buggy piece of junk. It won't stay connected, even with the stay connected option enabled. In the best case, it uses too much battery, and in the worst case it consumes 100% of the CPU, just killing my battery. Sometimes it won't let me type a message. Sometimes it delays syncing of messages. It shows the wrong emoticons. It doesn't sync message read counts. Presence doesn't work correctly with multiple devices. When you tap a message notification, it takes you to the wrong conversation. I've opened bugs for some of these problems, but they remain unfixed. Atlassian should be ashamed of themselves for turning out such a poor quality product.
Notification mechanism on Android app seems half-baked. Also why would getting push-style updates be causing my battery to drain quickly? At the very least I would like to know quickly how many messages have been posted in every room I am in since I last actively viewed that room on my smartphone...
It's fine but really lacks 'Quit' option. Once started, it keeps notifying about chat events despite I'm already seeing them on the laptop version. And I cannot just close the client at the EOD, it's showing me online.
Notifications have gotten more consistent lately. This usually works reasonably well on my phone. The tablet experience us unusably awful. Lag is so bad that normal actions just abort. When I clear data and log back in, the situation improves for like half a day.
