Fix the last update. It is broken!

UPDATE: I’ve been contacted by support, it seemed like they really care to fix the problem. With new update my Viber is working without any problems. I really hope that they will not have any problems like this in the future. So… because support contacted me within 24hours, because they tried and care to resolve problem I changed my review to 5 stars.

I’ve been using this app over 6 years. I was even recommending it to all my family and friends. It is awesome, fast, never any problems with audio or video calls until the latest update. Since I updated it to the newest version it went down the hill. App start kicking me out, then it finally stopped doing that but then it start freezing. It froze for few minutes and then crash. I can’t do anything. I can’t back it up, I can’t report a problem, I can’t contact support… Nothing! I even tried removing the app and downloading it again. Even that didn’t help. It is so frustrating! I saw in the comments that I am not the only one with this problem. I really hope you will fix this problem soon.

App crashes when doing chat history restore

I have been an avid user of the app for 7 years and it’s been great with the stickers and gifs that make messaging interesting. But I’ve had problems receiving and sending messages in the past month. I made sure I am using the latest version of the app and iOS software. So when that did the fix my problem, I opted to delete and reinstall the app since that seemed to fix the issue for some people.

However, when I tried to restore my chat history, the app would crash after 1% and revert to my phone’s home screen. When I try opening the app, the restore screen would pop up and again crash after 1%. Granted I have about 28gb of chat history, but I have enough phone and iCloud storage that it shouldn’t be an issue. I reached out to the Viber support team, but after the quick initial response with their “solutions” and me answering “No, tried it, still crashing on me,” I haven’t heard back from them which has now been 5 days.

I really hope that they are working on the issue and not just keeping me on a shelf of “to-work-on-later” issues. But until I receive a viable solution to the problem, the app will remain deleted for me since when (and if) the restore eventually chooses to work for me, I don’t want new messages to be erased.

Not Great

My boyfriend and I (I'm in the States, he's in London) used to use Tango and had nothing but problems. When we switched to Viber almost two months ago, we were so impressed! The call quality is infinitely better, plus we get to text for free! With the new update today, we love the time stamp feature and the photos next to the contacts. I love seeing his handsome face! Great product! I would have gladly paid for it. But am grateful its free! Update: the December 18, 2012 update is terrible. It's jumpy, closes down while typing, they changed the notification ping to something almost indiscernible, its cluttered with nonsense pictures, the talk to text feature doesn't work and it's very slow. While I would have paid for the app before, I wouldn't now. Changing from 5 stars to three. Update: Oct 27, 2022 been using it for over 10 years. Really enjoyed being able to connect with family and friends from All over the world. However, for the past month notifications don’t arrive until you open the app and wait a good minute before they kick in. I don’t always remember to check multiple times a day and older family members in hospital can’t get a hold of me. It’s extremely frustrating that there have been 4 updates to the app in that time and an app developer company can’t fix the problem on iOS. Updating stars from three to one.
