Review from Gustavo Castro
Awesomeness Great way to stay in touch with my wife and son on my long work trips. I installed it on my tablet and sometimes i forget that I'm not in the same room as them.
The new update is terrible. It's a lot more harder and confusing to use. And everytime I try to oovoo someone, they freeze after 5 seconds and even after I try hanging up and calling again it still does the same thing. You can't see who is available and who isn't. And it's harder to message too? What was the point of this? The old version was so much better. You made a huge mistake doing this
I like the updated version but wat happened to my pics and y did the texting change it was fine the way it was n the background pic on my profile? Wat happened to that. And my pics?!?!! That I had on there I'll never get them back!! I won't the old ooVoo back wen r they gonna listen to US!!
This new app stinks! . My pictures are gone. Can't tell who is online, no real privacy settings! I hate the fact that my camera comes on every time when I want to message someone, I suggest people you put tape over camera if your not using using it. You are being watched, there is no reason for my camera to come on, if I am not vedio chatting. I can delete my messages but not my friends, I can go on and chains is stupid, get friends request from strangers. I am done! .
Ruined any good UX/UI to be like Snapchat. Can't tell who's online, not going to ring friends who might be offline. Grids of cards for people is a miserable experience and waste of screen real estate. There's no point in even bothering with this app any longer. Look at all the unhappy people. They're your users. Brilliant move!
Down from 2 stars to 1. There's no way to tell online from offline contacts. Can't seem to find most of my contacts. Bombarded by content from strangers with this new chain nonsense. I'd just like to use oovoo as an IM service not whatever this mess is supposed to be.
I agree with most of the users, old version was significantly better. New version has ruined everything. For instance, no intimation of who is online and otherwise, friends list has disappeared so can't keep track of your friends anymore, Text chat is almost impossible. On top of that it's buggy and laggy, introduced unwanted adds. What's left that is good about it, I don't know anymore. Simply this forced update has ruined it for many who used this as a messenger. Sooner or later another app would make the users relocate as a consequence.
Fixed a lot of crashes and made it look pretty on more devices.
