Wanted to love this app, but there's no permanent way to disable autoplay? I can't have messages just playing out loud, but I don't want to put my phone on silent, and setting my status as "busy" only lasts til I send a message and it automatically switches right back to "available." I know the point is to emulate a walkie-talkie but there needs to be an option to disable this and only get notifications. I was hoping this would be like a more functional Voxer.

The last couple months, I've been noticing a lot of DELAYS in sending and receiving messages (the app holds the message in the queue, anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes). We use this app for a business, and all the delays are becoming problematic enough that we may stop using this app very soon. I've been expecting patch updates and improvements, but it only seems to get worse lately. Once you get in a conversation with someone there seems to be a lot less delay and it's more stable.

I love this app for a variety of reasons. 1. It works like a walkie talkie, but with completely unlimited range. 2. you can exit the app so that you don't receive messages. (this is GREAT especially if you are off the clock. ) 3. it records all of the messages. this is great when you work with the " i didn't say that" guy. you can LITERALLY hit a button and prove them wrong. (beware! if you say "i wanna bang the bosses daughter " someone else can hit a button and take your job!)
