Disappointed with the update!

I loved the app until the last update just a few days ago. I was able to see and hear the audio clearly, it lagged here and there but I wasn’t about to complain when I finally had the opportunity to see and talk to someone in jail over an app! After the update, I am no longer even able to stay logged in! It logs me out and has me unable to get any calls or notifications anymore and so I can’t even have a conversation anymore with the person I’m tryna talk to! EVERY time I gotta log back in. And every time it shows me the terms and conditions and I gotta confirm and accept it and then log back in again. That’s just insane. And a complete waste of an app that provides this service. I’m seriously fed up after a week almost of not even being able to talk to the person I’m tryna talk to! It really messes up with your emotions as this is never gonna be easy to deal with or easy to talk with a loved one that’s an inmate. So that whole oh-we-almost-have-it-working-and-up-again then it doesn’t work and you can’t see or talk to them, is a realllllllly messed up feeling that this app’s purpose should be to avoid from happening and help demolish entirely, and instead, connect you to the person instead of play with your emotions hot n cold like that! Please fix that! It was great otherwise BEFORE the update.

The update made it impossible to use

I’ve been using this app since 10/20 and the update in January made it work great. It was such a relief to be able to see each other. More importantly so my son can see his father daily. I’ve spent a lot of money with app and it’s extremely frustrating that the newest update 3 days ago just made it completely impossible to talk to each other.

It takes 20 minutes plus for it even able to refresh to then sign me out of the app. It erased all my information I had saved. When we finally got to use the app it cut the video because call failed out of no where.

Please fix this problem. Using this app is so important for our family.

Impressed until yesterday

Up until yesterday when my app updated I was super impressed with this app. It allowed my family and I to talk to my brother-in-law and we video called every day multiple times a day, but now that you guys have updated the app, it rings and it doesn’t allow me to answer him, I hit the answer button and it just continuously rings sometimes instead of answering at all. 20 minutes ago, I FINALLY, after countless missed calls and getting kicked out of the app multiple times got it to answer the video only for us to be kicked off our video for failed communication FOUR times so we just completely abandoned this app completely and I paid to have him call me instead of being able to video and actually see him like normal. Please fix the issues, I LOVED this app until these problems started occurring and it really is helpful for the inmates and their families to still be able to see each other face to face in the comfort of their own homes daily. I’ll give it three stars for now, before the issues occurred I would have given it five. I would love to keep using this daily if the issues get resolved so hopefully soon it will be back to running as good as it was before it updated!
