Works but lots of bugs

The app works perfectly fine:
Allows to login n perform the activities intended to.
But there the app is not complete is what I found should be fixed for better usability:
1. Logs out when app is in background... Ex: while working on sametime if another app is opened, the user logs out n everytime app is opened, user needs to login. The only workaround is that user creds can be save to allow auto login...
2. The chat history gets skewed and chat history is not readable. Sometimes it looks as if the chat history is displayed as latest on top (not the conventional view) but this is not true as the following chat displays latest chat at bottom..making it skewed.
3. The notification is not user friendly... Instead of showing short ID, it would be better to display the full name. The message notification on notification center can show a bit of some message unless it is ok from enterprise regulations

Current update crashes on launch every time

Worked fine until I updated today. Now it crashes as soon as it opens. Apparently no Q/A testing was done?

Works beautifully if you have the right server installed

For all those complaining it doesn't work or notifications don't work - that's not IBM, that's your server infrastructure. The right version of Sametime configured correctly works with this app beautifully. You need Sametime Community Server v8.5.2 IFR1 and Sametime Proxy Server, as well as a DB2 database working with the Proxy for notifications.

If it doesn't work for you, go talk to your IT department and verify if they have the system requirements in place.
