Ratings and Reviews
I’m SO glad that there’s finally an app of some sort that can keep me connected in SL while I’m on the go! I always miss spending time with my friends due to work and differing time zones so this is a big help! So far, no crashes or freezes! I love that you can see both local chat and IM’s. You can also teleport to other regions, walk, and even use your inventory and interact with other items and furniture like you would inworld. My few complaints (updated since my last review) would be the inventory. I wish that there was a current outfit tab so that I can see all that I have on. Also, the app seems to be having some connection issues. It keeps saying that there’s no Internet available despite my connection being just fine. Lastly, for some reason, when I login using the app, it removes all of my clothing and hair from my avatar. (Tested it on an alt) Other than those issues, I love the app and really hope to see it get updated as time goes on!
I got Second Life as one of my friends plays music in SL and I came to support her. Once in a while she is live when I’m not home, so I thought this app would work. It did. But it’s gotten progressively worse. It seems to always crash now when going to the Map Chat tab. Every time. On the rare occasion I do get to the map chat, it will freeze up and stay frozen when I start typing. I thought maybe it was because it was saving the chat on my phone so I turned that off, and it still does it. Deleting and reinstalling works for maybe the first time and then it goes back to freezing up again. If it’s not fixed I’m going back to the way I used to do it and access my computer at home remotely
Does everything it says it does
Nice app. Read the description and you will see all it can do. Great for keeping in touch when away.
I used to use Metaverse and this has actually improved upon it.
I hope that a future upgrade will give us the ability to open our own profile and edit it. That would boost my rating up one notch. 😊
