Poorly written app

We regularly sail offshore and use our iridium pretty heavily. I understand the speed and am ok with that. What I find incredibly frustrating is how poor the applications are written. The messaging app constantly reorders all the MSS messages, making the conversation unreadable. It always puts all the sender’s messages at the bottom of the conversation, bumping all the recipients at the top of the displayed conversation. This destroys the sequence of the conversation. This is a basic QA failure!!
The mail and web apps have horrible connection logic, with little error handling and no connection retry on failure. This is short sided for a satellite device.

Unfortunately, there is no alternative to the sms app. I’ve purchased third party connectivity apps to replace mail and web.

Couldn’t live without this Tech

Iridium your programmers were drunk when they wrote this app!!. Extremely pore development went into the design. Not to mention lots of bugs. It crashes randomly. No need to have separate applications for mail by the way! For as much money as this cost get with the developmental program!! An 11 year old child can build a cleaner slicker interface that works!! Get the snake out of your pocket and build a better app for this device!

Just think we have assisted self driving cars and satellites in space that we communicate with. Amazing tech however when a customer uses an Iridium Go device and launches the deplorable app customer can’t use the satellite technology because of a lousy developer and a lack of care by iridium for allowing it to be eligible for download. Also did mention there hasn’t been any updates!!!???

When you build an app only driven piece of hardware your user interface is extremely important!!!! Small bugs I can understand as an app developer but fundamental rookie mistakes and lack of attention to detail are not acceptable.

Build it the right way or don’t do it at all.

If you buy one of these devices better have an old iPhone to use it.

Compatibility Issue

This app will not work with my iPhone 6 Plus, even after extensive tech support. It will work, and works well, with my old iPhone 5. If Iridium fixes the compatibility issue soon, I will change the rating to 5 stars.
