This app fails in even basic functionality. How can it be that the only way to add a friend is to manually type in their email? It's also buggy, requiring a close/reopen cycle before the contacts list will update - and occasionally messages will display the wrong nickname which can be highly confusing.

It seems to be impossible to change the configured server address. I wanted to switch from direct server address/port to a SRV resource record but it seems that I would have to delete the whole app data and start over.
