Always Connecting I like the app, but its been unreliable at delivering messages even with the always stay connected option enabled. Nearly everytime I open the app it says its connecting.
Good! Idk if its just me, but whenever i open the app, 99% of the time it shows "connecting" for like almost a minute. Then when i send a message, it will fail 98% of the time and i will have to resend it atleast 3x before it send successfully. I have a good internet connection though.
App works fine, but odd visual choices The app works for me, but the very loose spacing of chats listed on the screen is annoying. I see only 8.5 chats at once, with a lot of wasted white space, where you could fit up to 14, still with good readability. Are you maybe constrained by Google's Material Design guidelines? And the reddish icon is ugly.
Uh, red icon...NO After spending five minutes trying to find a setting that changed, I uninstalled it then reinstalled it, just to find out the red icon is a FEATURE. What?? Bad choice guys. Just put the blue one back with the beta flag please. Thought something was wrong with my phone. It looks terrible. Don't respond to this review justifying it, like you did to Aaron Rogers review also. Instead, listen to your user base and fix it.
(shrug) I don't mind the red icon.
Better, but not quite there. Landscape support! Finally usable again. Doesn't have the open chats overview of the old design, unfortunately. I've changed the rating from 2 to 3 stars, accordingly. I've been keeping around a v2.7 apk to use, but now I can finally use the latest version. However, there are still numerous issues with kb controls. Most notably, Enter does not send the message. Still, this is a step in the right direction. The new beta icon is nice, also.
Fixed - For conversations that you wouldn't regularly look at on your phone, sometimes they'd show as blank the first time. That won't happen any more!
