Ratings and Reviews
Changes I want
I love messenger it’s amazing to call in anyway text amazing but the only thing that bugs me (the change I want #1) is that when you press remove to remove a message it would be great to not put in sooo many things like we all know what remove means so yeah pretty fast forward you know and sometimes when I want to remove a message from everyone I can’t like some of the messages only i can delete from me not from everyone which is weird and ( another change I want #2 last one) I think when you say happy birthday or boo or any of those stuff it would be nice to like add a effect to it you know it’s really cool I like it and I think a lot of people will too like when you type in boo this emoji comes up 👻like on the chat or screen or the word boo comes up every where or when you type in happy birthday this emoji comes up 🥳 like the last on the word comes up every where or the emoji you know I think that’s cool that was my feedback and opinion
Great app but I have noticed a glitch no one is talking about.
I’ve used the messenger app for what seems like forever, I’ve had no issues with it other than the sound on calls being quiet which I know is not the fault of my phone, other than that everything is great.
The one glitch I’ve noticed and have asked other iPhone users about and they have confirmed it’s happening to them as well, is that sometimes notifications that come through (not the red circle by the app) and do not go away, for example I received a message about a week ago and it kept the notification in my notification wall even though I had pressed it and viewed the message, I deleted the notification by swiping it across and selecting delete but it came back within 24hours. It’s not really a big problem but it often does this with a few messages and they keep coming back, it’s a little frustrating and I often find myself thinking that I’ve missed messages from friends.
Make it easier to delete unwanted/spam messages and block FB fake profiles
I like Messenger but I would give it a 5 star rating if it were easier to be able to delete and then block unwanted spam messages without having to actually go into the message. You can easily delete a message from people you are friends with by hovering over the message and then selecting delete, but you can’t do that with spam messages. It would be great if you could both delete a fake/spam message and then block the profile by hovering over the message without opening it up. I know they don’t see you have opened the message, but it’s not the point. It’s not easy or obvious how you delete the unwanted message and then block the person. In fact it’s easier to block the person/fake profile than it is to delete a message from them!
