Very bad I run several messaging apps. They all work fine except hipchat. Constantly failing to alert, losing messages or very slow delivery for those msgs that do alert, failure to reconnect after network transitions. This app is a mess.
Loses messages Many if not the majority of the messages that I receive through this app will create a notification but then not appear in the chat. This is especially strange for a service that stores its messages server-side and does not have this issue with the desktop client. It's as though the mobile client is going out of its way to delete messages. This bug has caused serious professional problems for me and makes hip chat a worse choice than no chat solution at all. It also drains battery like crazy.
Needs better behavior on notifications My company extensively uses Hipchat and overall I'm satisfied with the service - but the Android client has a severe weakness. When I get an alert from being called out in a multi user room or reached out to 1-1 - tapping the alert opens the app but does not go to the room or chat associated with the alert. But, responding to the alert clears the notification from both the mobile and web client so now I have to search to find what the alerting message/room was - an annoying waste of time.
Worst messaging app ever Be prepared to not being notified and missing messages most of the time, specifically on mobile! Terrible app.
Massive battery hog If you keep the app in always on mode so it doesn't sign off when you're idle, it massively drains the battery. Not sure why when pretty much all other messaging apps have no impact
Very buggy Looses rooms history, e.g. just shows the latest message but the history is just blank. Doesn't show number of unread messages in rooms after being offline. Switching networks causes random problems with reconnect and history.
