Horrible sign-up experience. I lost my password once, and ended up having to ask friends to ask other friends to pass on a verification request. When I tried to sign up my wife, I used up my "once per month" other-usee verification to verify her, and then when I went to the messages app to get the code they'd sent, the sign-up process logged out. After several days of trying she still has no account. It's just one of the worst apps to use if you're not living in China. Deeply frustrating.

All issues fixed, thank you! "1.Many times the Chats would show up way later than when they were actually sent out. This delay is very annoying. 2. It needs the ability to silence the contacts individually. 3. Messages won't send as soon as I release the button, I have to manually resend almost every single one of my messages longer than 10 seconds. Please fix, and then I'll fix my rating. Thanks."

WeChat is great for texting and has an incredible range of cute, free stickers. However, after less than a week, I've been locked out of my account twice for "suspicious activity" and need a friend to help me log back in through some convoluted process. Their help center says if you use Project Fi, then they recommend using a different phone number to connect... Unfortunately, this is also the only phone number I have. I like the app, but the login process really ruins the experience.
