Ratings and Reviews
This could of been way better
This is simply a web app disguised as a Mac app, which is a shame. Why wasn't this made with Catalyst? Takes way too long to load messages even when the app isn't closed. It should be fast and feel like a native mac app like the Messages app. When I open it my message texts should already be on display, not having to wait for them to load up from a server.
Version 61.6.120 not loading
The app will no longer load since I updated the app to version 61.6.120 yesterday.
No error messages or crash notifications show up.
I’ve tried rebooting the machine with no change.
I’m running MacOS 10.13.6.
The app no longer works.
