Ratings and Reviews
Nice when it works
...but it barely works. When you are not actively in the Lync app you will be push notified you missed a message but you can't actually ever view the message and it notifies you of this missed message with part of the text often up to five times consecutively. I once got stuck in some loop where the push notification wouldn't stop until I uninstalled the app. I now uninstall it about once a day and reinstall it only when necessary for work. Dear god, fix this stupid app already.
Basically works. Needs notifications.
I first installed the app today. Easy to set up and I logged in fine. My Lync contacts were all there and I was able to message a few of my coworkers.
However the connection either drops when I switch to another app, or I've had especially bad luck with my network connection. I have all notification types enabled but so far only a badge icon seems to appear and that only after I opened the app and read the new message. Around the same time I got the "missed conversation" email.
App does work with iOS 8.
UPDATE: If you're having issues with this app force closing after you upgraded your firmware to iOS 8, all you have to do is delete the app and reinstall it.
This worked for me and I have an iPhone 6 with 8.0.2.
This app did work well prior to the release of iOS 8. Once you update your phone's OS, the app won't even open. The developers for this app haven't issued an update to their app since April 2013, so I doubt they still support this app/will be releasing an update to make this compatible with iOS 8.
