Ratings and Reviews
Good product, looking forward to improvements
We are using it corporately; in general we find it very useful.
There are some annoyances, mainly to do with list synchronization. Because we move back and forth from the desktop version and the mobile version, conversations become fragmented. Also, conversations that are read on one platform need to be "marked as read" on the other. There is no "mark all as read" on the mobile application, which makes this process tedious.
Ability to attach pictures to a conversation would be a plus.
Lot of scope to improve
Not working after last update
Updated yesterday and since then it has not worked, opens then automatically closes all within 1 second.
