Had this before and it used to be great... now my messages come in normally, (no preview though, regardless of selecting it) but when you click the bubble, it just says "New message", "2 new messages" and so on... it doesnt show you what they ACTUALLY SAID... just that you HAVE a message. Never used to do that. I've gone through all the settings 3 times already.. nothing. Kinda renders it pointless.

This is a great app, however, it no longer works properly. It's not the developers fault but it appears that Android 12 is causing the issue. It stops you pressing any other key on your phone until you clear the chathead. I've tested this on different phones and different chathead apps. All with the same issue making the app useless. But hopefully there's a work around and all will be sweet again.

It's good, it just need a few more tweaks. I can't see photos in it yet and I hope I will be able to in the next update. The basic features are good enough for me. Btw, how about you guys consider adding the feature to send pictures and files? I am thankful for the app, it's been hellish to manage multiple accounts. Edit: You guys need to work on syncing too. It doesn't show past messages and it's hard for backtracking and you have to open the main app to do so.
