It's OK, maybe decent, but not a good app. It loads and refreshes really delayed. When tapping push notifications to open the messages you are greeted with the splash / loading screen for several seconds, even tough you kept the app running in the background. When you have a conversation opened, new messages are not loaded unless closed and reopened or by tapping the push notifications which contains the actual latest message. This app needs more love to become what it should be.
1 Star. The fact that you need another app just to message friends is nothing more than a cash grab on Sony's end. Not to mention the lack of innovation, and money put into said apps. It's laggy, very buggy at times, sometimes it cannot connect, the refresh and loading times are delayed. The Actual Message App-deleted it after it failed on multiple accounts to retrieve my messages, and forcibly closed the app afterwards. Garbage.
With all the money you earn one would think you would be able to make a great app with everything we need in that one app... But no, we get 3 garbage apps instead of just one. Sort yourselves out, most of us are paying for PSN. Disgraceful.
The app works when it wants to. I have a flagship phone, so I know the problems I'm having with the app are probably not on the consumer side. The app doesn't properly refresh messages. When it does, it's like three days later. Sony please work on this app.
Great for sending messages and makes it easy to keep playing your game and see what messages you have. The main gripe i have is that it can be quite slow in loading new messages when already in a message thread and sometimes you have to quit the app and start up again.
You can't read what previous person wrote n it' can be very slow. Maybe because of an update? I hath to be on my PlayStation to actually read it. Plz fix I'll rerate once fixed ty.
