Functional, but unimpressive. It'd be nice if I could change a few more options - selecting a notification sound, for example (to differentiate it from Android system notifications and other running applications) would be nice. Access to at least SOME of the options available in the desktop version (such as auto-start at login, picture display) would also be useful. Works reasonably well and provided the desired core functionality.
Used to work, now it doesn't It looks like all the menu options have been lost in the latest upgrade (not sure if that's Lync, Android, or Samsung upgrade). The ability to search for people who are not pinned is gone because the menu is missing. Tried to uninstall and reinstall, now don't have access to advanced settings to set up the server so now it doesn't work at all. Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge, Verizon, Android Marshmallow (6.0.1)
No Synching of Coversations I really like the app, with sending and receiving messages when not at my desk. It saves me from having to have colleagues' mobile numbers to text. But I don't see how much more usefull this app will be until it synchs conversations between deviced, i.e., your phone and your business PC.
Obvious flaw How do you make a program called "Lync", and not make it sync across all devices? This is the number 1 feature I think anyone would expect given it's called "Lync". There is absolutely no logic or benefit for a user to have the program implemented this way, and actual makes Lync more of a hassle!
Useful when connected I use a VPN to connect to my company's system, but this app rarely reconnected when my network connection drops and reconnects. Even when I stay connected, my status changes to inactive within minutes, and there is no setting to change the timeout. I am also having a problem when I need to re-sign in, where I need to restart the app for it to reestablish a connection. I was very happy when I saw this app, would have paid for it, but it is not as convenient nor as responsive as I had assumed.
Very poor app The app will only connect to the server sporadically so it's basically useless. I realize that Microsoft has moved on the Skype for business but my company doesn't support that app yet. They need to fix the problems with this app as long as corporations are still using it.
This release includes:
• Fix for a sign-in issue for users on Jelly Bean (4.2 and newer).
• Other bug fixes.
Recommended: Users who are updating from older versions of Lync client, may need to sign out and sign in again, after installation is complete.
