This app is useless, it constantly freezes up and stops to the point that I rarely can send messages now, most of the time I don't even far enough to start composing a message. The last notification of an incoming message I received, according to the time stamp, was 10 hours late. This problem seems to be associated with the advertising, occurring shortly after a space appears for the advertising. This once was a decent app, now it is worse than useless. Update: the problems persist.

For the last 2 months I have been having problems viewing profiles and sending some pictures (especially videos). I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app a number of times which seems to fix the problem for a few hours before it starts doing the same thing (along with deleting all conversations). There doesn't seem to be any help that seems to work to even find out what could be the problem.

I want to recommend adding in voice audio to send audio recordings. I prefer to make voice messages over regular texts. It's just easier but I notice Kik is the only texting app that doesn't have this feature and I wish it did. Me and multiple of my friends agree that would make the app better. Honestly if it weren't for that and the ADs and lack of customization, I'd probably give 5 stars. But I am changing from 3 to 4 stars since you did add in the option to disable the live streams.
