Has evolved to become an essential app for Windows. However, the update introduces a bug when quick replying from the Windows notification: the message sends twice, resulting in duplicate texts being sent to the recipient. (Note: This only happens when connection to LAN.)

It kind of works for sending texts from a pc but not very well. Even though I use it rather frequently, the texts usually don't show up on the app. The last text on the app (which should be the most recent) was sent 7 months ago. I can't even see the text I just sent, nor the reply which showed up momentarily as a pc notification. The app seems to hold onto image texts that say "View Image." And yeah, you can't see the images.

I was looking for a better SMS/MMS app to replace the default one on my phone which doesn't handle MMS very well (multiple photos or photo w/text appear as a slideshow, etc). I saw lots of positive reviews for Join and was looking forward to being able to text from my PC, easily share files, etc. I really thought I'd love this app, but sadly that's not the case. I never even got to the point of trying the advanced features because the basic SMS/MMS handling was so frustrating. Received photos only show as a preview with excessive blank space (most of a screen) before and after the photo. No way to zoom or view full size. No way to download or save the photo. Accompanying text is rendered like another photo so there's no way to copy/paste, etc. Received texts would show immediately in the alerts or in the thread summary screen, but not in the actual thread until much later. Even worse, a photo/text received from one person appeared to come from someone else. There is no indication of unread texts in the thread summary screen. You have to check each thread and remember what you last read. I guess I'll have to keep looking for something better. *sigh*
