I have had this app for like 2 years? And have made soo many friends. In fact once the video chat came out a group i was currently in was so hype, we spent a bit on it but it didnt work all the time back then so we gave up. There clearly has been lots of change since then and i enjoy most of it. There are a few bugs that well, bug me. First off the problem with changing pfp. Im in so many group chats (not rlly) were a lot of them have changed their pfp but it doesnt change when they text, and neither does their name. Which is more of a minor inconvenience but i still like to see that change. Another bug that i see often is when it would take me back to old “unread” messages even when i was talking during these times. I love all the things that have been added but these bugs have never changed. A cool thing to see in the future too is possible more backgrounds of possibly putting your own pictures for backroads and maybe adding a bio and making the background pick a little bigger, while i get why its that size i like the picture that i put and some arent fit for that format, and with the actual profile picture covering it it makes it harder to see the pictures. This app has definitely done its job of letting meet new people and talk to old ones and i would like for some of these bugs to finally be worked on after so long.

Ok so I’ve had Kik since 2 years back, it was awesome and worked amazing at that time. So I got a new phone and forgot about it and probably half a year later I got it again, it was great when I opened the app. It worked perfectly and I didn’t have any problems. So as time gone by I noticed a few bugs, example: I own a group so I’m the owner, sometimes when I open the app and a bot joins I try to remove it but it doesn’t give me the option so when I view the members, there’s two of me. The one that’s owner and the one that’s a member. So I ask the members if they see two of me in the members and they say no. I tried closing the app and reopening it but it never works so I just wait it out and let my admins do it for me. The update that I hated is when someone leaves a group chat, you can’t private message them. That update annoyed me a lot because I made some friends in some chats but they left but I can never get in touch with them unless I had them in my contacts which I do not. I’m only see that the bugs happen in the group chats. I really hope they fix them because I love this app!

Let me start off by saying I am writing this not for my sake but for my girlfriends sake. I have been a member of kik for almost five years. I have always loved the app and enjoyed it a lot. My girlfriend, however, told me about the ban system set in place. I believe the perma ban system you have set up where if you prove there is wrong doing you can lose your account is acceptable. I do not, however, believe that the temporary ban system in place is fair. My girlfriend is an admin of a group chat and is worried because someone is falsely reporting them because their friend was removed from the group because they were rude to others. One of the admins has already received a temporary ban due to these false reports and quite frankly I don’t believe it is fair that they did. I believe a better system for temporary bans should be in place to prevent innocent people to be banned. Thank you for reading this and I really do enjoy the app but I strongly believe that to make the app even better the temporary ban system needs to be changed.

Troubleshooting with the app has completely crashed for me an my friend almost, and it’s become very annoying. Our messages will get stuck on Sent and it’s a gamble if they will arrive or not to the chat, and half of the messages never display Delivered and that’s also a gamble for if they actually arrived or not. We’ll get notification sounds for new messages and once we open that chat that we guessed it “arrived” in, it’s not there most of the time and we have to send the message again. I’ve tried doing what the help articles for Connection troubleshooting and Red Recipients along with the Notifications article which are all the same thing, but they’ve done literally nothing. The only noticeable difference was at the beginning whenever one of my messages displayed Delivered, but it never happened again and it appeared to only have worked for the first two minutes. I’ve had to redownload the app as well, which didn’t work in the slightest either. I can’t keep turning my phone on and off every two minutes in the hopes that my messages will actually reach my friends. Please make an effort into fixing this.

I thought this app was nice at first. After using it a while it became clear that you cannot use it unless you verify your personal information to the owner and admins of chat rooms. In order to stay you are asked to submit your age, exact location and a live picture or you will be removed from the group. I reviewed Kiks community standards and even wrote regarding this issue. I received a response that this is not condoned by Kik and that it would be investigated but it still goes on to this day. I do not feel that this is something that Kik should allow to happen. I feel as if the group owners/ admin are being predatory picture collectors gathering whatever information they can about you. I understand the need for safety but when I am asked to provide this information to admin that do not provide their own information then there is a problem. I do not have a problem with the app itself and think Kik has done a good job with it. I do however think that the way people are misusing it is discouraging. I would not recommend friends to use Kik unless they are comfortable with sharing so much personal information to individuals whom you have no idea who they are.
