Messages are often buggy

I would think that if a previous message doesn't get sent, that once a successful connection is made that both the failed message and the new message gets through but unfortunately that isn't the case. This is the best app so far for phone to phone communications but there has been a lot of patience tested trying to get messages through.

Love the idea, great app

This is awesome. Using it on our cruise. We have international data plan, but on the ship this works great to keep in touch with everyone in our party.
I have not experienced any of the stability issues others have complained about.

Unfortunately, it has not worked offline for quite some time now. The idea of a bluetooth mesh or bluetooth peer-to-peer based messaging app has died now that it requires internet access. It appears as though it may ping me when others users are near, but my last at sea trip, it failed to send a single message to the person not more than 10ft away also with firechat. I fear developer has abandoned this app.

Previous version was better

Since the latest update, it logs you out then doesn’t have the mobile number option for login. So if you originally set it up like that without the uname&passphrase option then your account is inaccessible via the iTunes app. I have the email recovery option, but I keep getting the “unable to send, invalid email” warning box when I use that same email all day.

Very disappointed that I can’t use my app unless I want to create a new account which would mean setting everything up again.

Since no one from the company has responded, I’ll probably go to a different app. I’m sure they’ll claim “we never got anything” or something along those lines.
