I have been using this app for over two years now and it is excellent for talking with my relatives on the other side of the world. It’s also really nice there is a translator so that my family that doesn’t know English can easily translate my messages. The stickers are so cute and fun to use as well. The only reason I didn’t give it a five star is the video quality. I understand that I’m talking to people on the other side of the world and it might be hard to deliver good quality, but I hate when I’m video chatting with somebody and it just goes all blurry and pixelated or just pitch black, even when their video is on. I would definitely give five stars if it had better quality though!
I have the notifications set to off in both iPhone settings and the app. Yet, incoming calls are still ringing with that annoying Viber ringtone. Nothing shows up on the screen (unless you open the app), just a ringtone. In addition, even blocked numbers are ringing. I have do not disturb mode set up on my iPhone at night. But the ringing still happens. And this makes it particularly annoying during the late night/early morning when I’m trying to sleep. In general, Viber has a lot of little glitches here and there. More than other communication apps. But what makes it really annoying is that they are not focused on fixing their problems fast enough, However, they certainly spent a lot of time making sure the app is constantly I’m trying to get you to turn on the notification. Really??? What is the point of the notification button if you’re just going to constantly pester me after I already turned it off. Instead of constantly trying to get people to turn on notification and use your app more, maybe you should use that energy on fixing the problems in your app. Try making your app better so then people will want to use it more, instead of bombarding them with notices to turn on notification.
I used Skype for a decade to keep in touch with my dad in Ireland. I loved it. It was really good for video calls but regular phone calls cost money and I was constantly uploading funds. Viber is a perfect alternative to Skype... it occasionally drops calls or has choppy reception (just like Skype) but for the most part the connections are very good, the video is excellent, the audio is free... I cannot say enough good about Viber… It certainly is in line with any other competitive video service, and it’s a lot more free! I understand they have a charge to call lan-lines, I’m just happy that gives them enough revenue to sustain the business because it’s a wonderful way to stay in touch with relatives overseas without any cost to the average end user.
It’s been a while since I’ve used your app. You made some serious improvements in the meantime! Well done! The one thing I’d like to see you do is make it so audio messages auto play sequentially in a message thread after hitting play on the first one. Voxer did it first, but was unreliable. Recently, WhatsApp started doing it. If you add that you are definitely better than WhatsApp! Your “secret thread” and notifications when someone takes a screen shot and the auto self destruct is excellent! Can people adjust the timer, like Signal? I haven’t finished playing with your app, but it looks like you’ve done a lot of work. Good job, thank you, and keep it up!
Viber is a descent messaging app. I will start off by saying that. However, one thing that is never solved is the problem with downloading media files. There are literally hundreds and thousands of people asking on the internet how to download media files because now users can only download them either automatically (but not retrospectively) or individually. Here comes a problem. If I happen to have 500 photos to download before turning on the automatic download function, what should I do? Well, it appears that I should click on each one of them and save them individually to the gallery. How is it not an option to select all or some of them and download them the selected media files altogether? That is why you get two stars.
