Lot of good and some bad
I have had this app for like 2 years? And have made soo many friends. In fact once the video chat came out a group i was currently in was so hype, we spent a bit on it but it didnt work all the time back then so we gave up. There clearly has been lots of change since then and i enjoy most of it. There are a few bugs that well, bug me. First off the problem with changing pfp. Im in so many group chats (not rlly) were a lot of them have changed their pfp but it doesnt change when they text, and neither does their name. Which is more of a minor inconvenience but i still like to see that change. Another bug that i see often is when it would take me back to old “unread” messages even when i was talking during these times. I love all the things that have been added but these bugs have never changed. A cool thing to see in the future too is possible more backgrounds of possibly putting your own pictures for backroads and maybe adding a bio and making the background pick a little bigger, while i get why its that size i like the picture that i put and some arent fit for that format, and with the actual profile picture covering it it makes it harder to see the pictures. This app has definitely done its job of letting meet new people and talk to old ones and i would like for some of these bugs to finally be worked on after so long.
Love it (but I don’t like the new updates)
Ok so I’ve had Kik since 2 years back, it was awesome and worked amazing at that time. So I got a new phone and forgot about it and probably half a year later I got it again, it was great when I opened the app. It worked perfectly and I didn’t have any problems. So as time gone by I noticed a few bugs, example: I own a group so I’m the owner, sometimes when I open the app and a bot joins I try to remove it but it doesn’t give me the option so when I view the members, there’s two of me. The one that’s owner and the one that’s a member. So I ask the members if they see two of me in the members and they say no. I tried closing the app and reopening it but it never works so I just wait it out and let my admins do it for me. The update that I hated is when someone leaves a group chat, you can’t private message them. That update annoyed me a lot because I made some friends in some chats but they left but I can never get in touch with them unless I had them in my contacts which I do not. I’m only see that the bugs happen in the group chats. Also, the ads update, or what I think is a update is really annoying also because it really messed up al the chats I was in. I really hope they fix them because I love this app!
Good app that went downhill
I have had and used Kik for many years and I don’t know what happened but this app is barely useable nowadays. There are 3 main issues but first let me state that for the last 2 years I had the iPhone 11 Pro Max. And I just got the 13 Pro Max. So these issues aren’t because of an old phone. 1: It’s so laggy! It freezes up all the time. While loading, while trying to type out a message. It just freezes. 2: With the new iPhone 13 Pro Max it will not notify me. At all. I never know if I have a message now unless I actually tap to open the app then it will refresh and be like “Oh! So n so messaged you about an hour ago.” - When I had my 11 Pro Max this only happened randomly. But with the 13 I have not once gotten a notification from Kik. 3: The ads make this almost unusable. I get that you need ads since this is a free app. However, the way you’ve put them in and load are making the experience difficult because of issue number 1 that I listed. The ad freezes and then you have to kill the app which you may or may not need to see another pop up ad. And some of them won’t even close even when you tap the X in the corner resulting in having to kill the app and restart it. I really hope this gets fixed soon because I really do love the app since I’ve used it for many years but I could seriously go to another app like discord and not have to deal with any of these issues. I’m trying to be loyal but it’s getting harder each day…
