Why did you move the copy button. That's massively helpful to people using a translator all day to talk to someone. You used to be able to highlight a text and copy would be at the top and now it's gone. It's now moved to three dots, that really wasn't thought out on an app that's used a lot with communicating and translating. Updated : So I figured how, if you copy two lines, it appears. If you only copy one line, than you have to click on the three dots. Please change it back

Every time I try to add a friend on here, it screws up. Instead of adding the friend, it forces me to text them a link to download the app, even if they already have it. On top of this, it adds MY area code to the number texted, and makes THEIR area code the following numbers, resulting in a number that doesn't exist. I've tried looking up guides but they all use pictures that look different from what I see when I open the app. I guess it just doesn't work on my phone :/

Ever since the last update, my notifications and calls pick random times not to show, so I end up missing important calls and texts and not knowing about it until AFTER I open up the app. Also, trying to connect with someone overseas is abysmal. Calls drop automatically and it buffers every 10 seconds. Fix this.
