Haven't even been able to log in since the last update (it keeps telling me my connection is bad....... It's not.) Plus, the messaging capability has always been very poor. It's hard to have any kind of rapid conversation because it takes too long to deliver to the other person and when sending sequential messages in rapid succession, the app will send them out of order. I love the app concept and I've had some good convos on it, but it's currently unusable since it's glitching me out.

This app continues to go downhill with every update. It used to be amazing, the layout, and the whole idea of text based ads. But now I can't even log in. They need to fix the countless bugs instead of adding new features and designs that no one asked for. *Edit* log in issue was fixed quickly, but I still prefer how the app used to look and work.

The groups feature is awful. Today I received a message that there was more functionality added to the groups but I don't see any changes. I looked for an update and there isn't one. I keep hoping this app will be amazing but it just isn't getting there. Edited to add: I see that you can't read. As i said above, the app store says there is no update available for your app. So your suggestion is useless. Edited to add: Used your new instructions. When I click Update, nothing happens. 😮‍💨

Hi, thank you for your patience with this!! Hopefully this is my final reply 😳 We realized (thanks to feedback like yours, seriously, thank you!) that there was an issue with our recent android release, and it's not live yet. We're figuring it out today, and version 1.88 should be available in the Play Store soon.
