Comments and Reviews from users:

Angela Della Croce: “This app has SO much promise to be a major competitor against iMessage. Great design, fun features, customization, and the ability to text on multiple devices through Texty. BUT it's glitchy and inconsistent. Everything from message transfer issues, inaccurate search functions, not loading photos.. It works until it doesn't and ultimately made texting a hassle. I had to switch back to Samsung Messages. Don't bother with this app until Google releases a real update and fixes the bugs.” – 2/5 in Play Store

John Smith III: “Hello support, thanks for your quick response. It seems to be an ongoing issue and I haven't seen an update that fixes. 1. Even after you uninstall.. And reinstall the upgrades... Still have issues with slowness after only. Maybe a week or a few days. 2. Whenever I try to send multiple videos or images... It immediately slows down to almost a crawl or get stuck in a loop. Where it is hard to open or display text messages. 3. RCS messaging is a real serious problem...Missed texts/images/vid” – 2/5 in Play Store

Beautiful Woman: “I've been using Dropbox for ten years. All of the Information I've had on here since 2013 is still in tact and ready for whenever I want to go back to it. I pay for the extra storage, and I don't mind. I have pictures, stories, and videos on Dropbox that I feel secure aren't going to disappear. I even use it to write a novel that I am working on, and I love making chapters that turn into seasons. Just remember to save your work periodically. ❤️” – 5/5 in Play Store

Denny Nguyen: “Unintuitive, clunky. When trying to download a batch of files off the Dropbox app while using Wifi @ home, there'll be some errors downloading, and I'll lhave to start over. Also, why is there no "Hold to select" for a specific range of items, or "Skip all" when overwriting files? And I repeatedly get a "Allow Dropbox Access to this Folder?" every time I download a file from Dropbox... Unbelievable” – 2/5 in Play Store

Lisa Sands: “The paths to utilize different features of the app are confusing to navigate. Options should be easier to find. Instead, you have to go around clicking things until you can remember where different tools are located. Also, devices are constantly shown as offline or "not on the same network" when they ARE. Very frustrating. Newly added devices also tend to go straight to the Personalized Devices folder against your will, and you can't relocate them to their proper rooms from it. Glitchy! 😡” – 2/5 in Play Store

Brian Burwell: “The app was updated and most of my routines were broken until after I agreed to some pretty one-sided "terms of service" and some other thing. After reluctantly agreeing, I had to figure out why the routines weren't working. Most of my routines were setup under "smart lighting" and were still there. I went through and recreated everything under "automatic routines" and everything seems to be working. I'm just glad I didn't have to remember everything to get things working before the update.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Samie Golden: “Have always loved amazon. I don't get to order from them as much as I'd like, but when I do have the chance it's always been great. Last time was a phone that I was completely locked out of and couldn't get into for 2 months. Amazon refunded me and all was awesome!! Thanks amazon. Customer service on the other hand is awful. They run me in circles everytime I question an account being charged from my card that I can't find. It never ends and when I called I was told to make a new account.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Andrew: “The shopping works well, delivery is fast, usually. The sellers on Amazon are often low quality, and you have to really look around to find high quality items. Prime video is just bad. Aside from the fact that it forces you to disable your VPN, the content on prime is drying up and I constantly have bugs and issues with watching on PC (both chrome and firefox have the same problems). Gets 3 stars for fast delivery and Fallout series (highly recommend). It would be 2 stars without those things” – 3/5 in Play Store

Amanda Parker: “Amazing selection of affordable items, true to description and really fast check out and shipping options. Lots of coupons for so many items and individual shops, and the app "nudges" the user periodically - reminding of items remaining in cart or coupons expiring soon. Highly recommend checking it out!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Michelle Croswell: “(Edit. I have to take the 5 star rating away. The clothes are becoming very cheap, and the sizing is way off. Please, for plus size, use some real models! A tunic with 60 inch bust shouldn't have a 45 inch hip! Fix your sizing, I'll buy more product.) My overall experience is 5 star. Rather spammy with offers, and some product can be cheap in quality, but over all good service, and I've snagged some great, plus-sized clothing!” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

C Braun: “the app doesn't respond to commands or questions properly since the updates several weeks ago. example: I'll ask for Smooth Jazz to be played and the Alexa decides what it wants to play, not what I asked for. I'm also not able to view full screens of my outdoor cameras. my fire tv cube has the same issue. it doesn't understand pause anymore and thinks I'm asking for a movie title. the bugs and lack of functionality as of late is useless. please fix these issues.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Ty Yanushka: “Pro: the display is good. Interfaces well with home devices and, once you learn ways to do them, the routines are helpful. Cons: VOLUME CONTROL. Can't set by voice at a percentage only through app. If I say to set at 23%, it sets it at volume 2 (20%) or say 26%, sets to 3 (30%). Even setting manually is painful and the slider is horribly sensitive. Would be great to be able to set separate volumes like for media like Spotify or live radio at a volume and Alexa voice at another volume.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Jacob Johnson: “Very fun to experiment with. I really like how fluid the conversations are and that it feels like a two way convo rather than just a Q&A robot. Still a bit rough. It'd be great if they would implement some custom voice options so users can change small things about the voice models - like pitch or cadence for example. Really looking forward to seeing what they do with this thing.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Alex Mahrou: “Something has changed with the keyboard. I see others are talking about this. If you input something, you need to write something very slowly, or else it'll glitch up your typing, it's very frustrating. You also notice this behavior of you try to backspace many characters at once, it'll stop. I think it's doing something weird with the cursor. Either way, like others, I've verified that this issue is unique to the ChatGPT App, and this doesn't happen elsewhere in Android.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Debugger Bear: “After years of being my "ol reliable" launcher Nova has now been broken for several months straight on Android 14. The app will frequently freeze when returning to the home screen, becoming visually frozen but you are still able to click your apps. Only seems to be fixed by locking and unlocking the phone after opening the app drawer in the frozen screen. It's not just me either -- there are multiple reddit threads. Goodnight my sweet... One day I may return to check if you've recovered.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Jonathan8995: “Overall the launcher is good. Good customization. But both of the last 2 phones I've had, when returning to the home screen, 50% of the time, no icons or anything is there. You can't pull down the notification drawer or pull up the app drawer. It won't do anything! I navigate with gestures, so no navigation buttons at the bottom. I have to pull up opened applications several times before it starts showing things again. This is an issue with the launcher!” – 2/5 in Play Store

Scott D.: “I've got a Pixel, and unfortunately Google believes that having the option to hide/lock apps isn't necessary. This app solves that issue and also makes more space by reducing icon sizes on the home screens. All my other apps still work great so far (I've tried other launchers and they interfered with some operations). You can edit pretty much everything in the settings too, which is AMAZING. Kinda makes me miss my Windows phone. Btw, tiles should be an option ;).” – 5/5 in Play Store

Marcos: “It is a great Launcher, and it has a lot of features that I find useful. However, it is not optimized, it slow down my phone and my phone is an average phone. Also, it's kind of buggy, I have come across two annoying bugs that messes up with my phone's controls permanently until I restart my phone, so I have to repeatedly restart my phone again and again.

Devin Clarke: “Great launcher, over all it is an easy way to get to your apps and categorize them. After using free a week, I upgraded to pay and am happy with doing so. Some things are not intuitive n trying to setup a custom experience, a category within a category is hard to work with. Hard to add apps and no way to arrange them to your liking, but the regular categories are easy to customize. I really would give it a 4.5, but it's better than a 4, so 5 it is.

Kaylon Blackburn: “I love this app. It gets down to what all is enabled or not and what can be enabled and what can not. It is done with this app a lot easier and saves a lot time too withbthe app. I downloaded it by accident but it's really handy. Especially when it comes to system apps and maybe hidden apps. Hidden for example one app on my phone being called Easter Egg 2 or something like that. I remember Easter Eggs from video games when I was a kid. May be helpful exposing not so innocent things too.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Norman Robinson: “Updated to a Pixel 8 and photo sphere was removed. There's not enough expletives left to express myself. Google sincerely screwed up pinch and zoom in the last update. I don't know if it's specific to the OS upgrade, but definitely you can't pinch and zoom with the same ease as you did before and you have to put that one finger in the corner to start to move and then zoom with a separate finger. Really is a step back in terms of user joy and usability is worse.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Joe Sabo: “It's ok... It is the only camera app, so far, that I've found, that will capture the raw image in the same magnification as shot. The other apps will zoom the jpg, but not the RAW. That's really great! But, where's the pro features? Manual settings please.. Focus peaking, bracketing,etc. ?! All that power and no camera 2 controls! Also, pixel binning is great.. But that should be an option, not a requirement.” – 3/5 in Play Store
