Needs an update

It's a fine app, seems stable enough, but version 5 on android is way nicer than version 4 that we are stuck with here on windows.

best of its kind.

very easy to use and hours of entertainment.

It's an okay app.

This app crashes alot. I can't send messages or stay on the app for too long. I can barely type at all as well. And the app constantly freezes. Or when it does work, its very slow. And it drains my battery incredibly fast. And it also be nice if there was the update to Scruff 5 like Android and Apple. Its unfair and decriminates the Windows phone, very neglectful

Slow / Crashes / Battery Drain

While I am grateful for support on the windows platform, I believe this app has been neglected for the last few updates. Issues: The app is slow. Everything takes far too long to load, and the app often freezes up while loading a profile picture. The content of the profile also will often times not load until the picture is finished. The app crashes often, especially when moving through messages and profiles in succession. This app seems to be old code from Windows Phone 7 with haphazard patches to work on newer OS updates (i.e. Windows 10). This creates severe performance issues What I'd like to see: The app has not changed in the last number of major updates. The UI for windows phones has changed to Windows 10. I'd like to see radical performance improvements as well as a redesign to meet Windows 10 UI styles.

This app puts a heavy drain on battery power while in use, or open in the background. Be sure to completely exit the app when not actively using it, or your battery will deplete fast. Otherwise, this app works great!

Bugs and UX

the design of the app makes me feel claustrophobic, please make the emphasis on the content. and make it pretty. Also, the app crashes every time I enter anyone's private albums (those I have access to)

New to this app

So far, so good and I am finding it easy to navigate. My only issue as of yet is very slow incoming messages.

Would like the features if they worked reliably. I have to restart often, because the app resets back to the beginning too often when I tap any tile or key. Very annoying. I hope it gets fixed in an update.
