Groupme has been so great for so long! Biggest plus is combing iPhone and Android users in a single interface. However, I do believe Groupme is lucky to be the first in the sphere because they’re are far better chat apps. Bugs: 1) On iPhone, viewing a calendar event immediately cause the whole app to glitch and lag when scrolling. 2) On iPhone, (null) is randomly inserted at the top of calendar events Grievances: 1) Messages can not be deleted or hidden, so don’t accidentally send anything in a group message 2) Calendar events blow up the group message because for some reason Groupme has to show a message for everyone’s decision about going or not going to an event, this should all be within the calendar event itself. 3) No user groups, only admin and commoners Overall not a bad app. Disappointing that it’s been out for years and still hasn’t fixed some pretty basic issues.
Messages won’t send from time to time and I have to leave a conversation, refresh the app and enter in the conversation to see a message I posted
The app worked for me great for quite a while. As of yesterday, I couldn’t see any messages posted in a group by my friends. I could only see what was being posted in my notifications bar. Usually I could select the notification and it would take me to the app. There, I’d be able to view the full message that was sent, along with other prior messages. Now if I select the message, I’m not able to see it in the GroupMe messages. I closed the app and reopened. This didn’t fix the problem. I checked my settings- and nothing appeared to be different than prior to this issue. Since nothing else worked, I uninstalled the app completely - which wipes out all of your chat conversations completely. I assumed once reinstalling I’d be able to be added back to the group. Unfortunately that didn’t work. I was removed and added back to the group by 3 separate people - and I still can only see what’s posted from my notification bar. The group no longer shows in my GroupMe app either. Not sure how to get this corrected, but to ask for everyone to start a new group on my behalf - shouldn’t be the way to correct it.
This is an awesome app for groups to communicate for personal and business purposes.
It’s really good, actually awesome. I use it for my sports team but I thing you guys should make an option to dislike texts. I don’t know me and my sports team are weird and think that would be awesome.
The app is good overall and has many great features. The layout is simple and easy to use and keeps everything organized. However, the app has been having repeated issues of closing randomly when opening a group and lagging often. If these and other technical issues are fixed, it would be a 5/5!
At first when I got the app and shared links to join they were working, but now the shared links are saying they are invalid when I or anyone else sends them. So there’s no way to join others chats.
The new update didn’t seem to fix the bugs. My app constantly shut down in the middle of trying to use it and the notification doesn’t go away when you open the messages. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and logged out to try to fix this.
I loved the app until today. The update removed me from my groups and deleted all my conversations. Urg.
I recommend this app to everyone, very easy to learn, negative through, search, add, remove guess, and communicate. Been using this app to run my league since 2014 and still running strong!
