Unreliable Can't keep a connection when my device roams from WiFi to 4g, which is one of the first things a mobile app should accommodate for. Instead, connection gets dropped, and won't reconnect unless force closed and restarted
Excellent I've been using this app for months and really like it. I can see my chats and rooms, chatting works just fine, and it has settings, which Campfire itself is sorely lacking. I actually came to view this on the Play store today to see if they had a Mac version I could use on my computer because Lantern is so much better than just plain Campfire.
The Best Campfire Client I've tried a couple of clients, but none of them worked nearly as well as this one. There could be a few improvements (like not having to re-fetch the chat history every time when switching rooms), but overall very good UX and smooth UI. A few problems: * I often get notifications saying "0 new messages in <room_name>", while in fact there were multiple messages. * It would be nice to have an option to lose the "# people chatting" header line. It takes up valuable screen real estate, and it is also redundant on tablets. * Posting an image (via the either of the intents) sometimes fails silently. Other than that, this is a nice app.
Fine Unicode support is not great (Maybe just the font choice?) but good. The app *needs* to remember username and account subdomain. Very frustrating to type those in every time. I'd prefer to have it remember password as well.
Developer helped me with my crash problem This app had not worked for me since I updated my S3 to JB. I contacted the developer but did not hear from him for a couple of months. When the developer did contact me, he worked through to figure out that my incorrect log in info was causing a crash that he has now fixed. App works well now.
Hog, noisy, buggy Uses a ton of background data with seemingly no way to turn it off. Leaving a room does not turn off notifications. Signing out causes the app to crash ever time you try to launch it again later If you want an app that will keep you logged in all the time, this will do the trick. However if you want an app that will let you check in periodically, lantern is extremely frustrating
