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.
Lacking some features I want to be able to declare myself offline without the need to logout. I Need a merged messages view that is sorted by time, so that i can tell quickly if anyone has messaged me since the last time i was online.
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.
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...
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.
Most of the webapp features are available which is awesome. What is not awesome is that it very often has issues sending messages; I will have to retry 3 to 6 times for it to go through. Very frustrating when using this for work.
