Doing quite well by me; hoping for more to come
I lov enot having to have Facebook open and just have a break out chat like the old days. Given the limitations Facebook has on third party apps, this scrubber of messages is pretty good. There are definitely some kinks to work out, such as not always being able to immediately click on a message, but it’s a ways farther than any other app I’ve tried. Although, I do recall that in earlier versions of Astro, when pasting a link, it could preload the link and put a preview, much like on the web. It doesn’t appear to work that way anymore. Hopefully, that can be resolved in a future update.
Paid the Developer but Little Support and No Images
I have the paid version of this software. I’ve been asking the developer about an issue for a month without any response.
Also, the images do no show up in chat conversations. Looking at the company’s Facebook page will show that’s a common issue.
The company’s Twitter and Facebook pages have been silent since the second week of January, so I suspect this developer has taken our money and moved on.
Several months ago, when I bought this, I would have given the app 5 stars. Now it is totally broken. PIctures do not appear. Connection to Facebook is often lost. Messages that others send through Facebook Messenger do not process properly. I am usually sensitive to issues like this happening when Facebook makes changes, but now it appears that the author is still taking people’s money, but no longer supporting the app. If this is the case, Apple should pull it so people stop getting ripped off.
The app itself is great but Facebook has restrictions on third party apps
I like the way Astro works. It delivers on its promise. I can chat with all my friends and family and most importantly, I can chat in group conversations, which I think Astro is the only desktop app to support. I’ve tried setting up Adium and Apple Messages and I don’t get group chats, which is a feature I use every day.
The issue that prevents me from using Astro is that I sent a lot of links to my friends (who doesn’t?), and for some reason, Facebook blocks those links, without Astro telling me about it. The first few time I asked my friends why they weren’t following up on my links. After checking the Facebook web interface, I noticed the links weren’t showing in the conversation. When I sent them through the web interface, I got asked to completed a captcha, every single time, for every link.
Because of that I stopped using Astro and eventually Facebook stopped prompting me to complete the captcha. It was fine until I downloaded Astro again and the issue came back. Facebook probably thinks that so many links sent in that short amount of time is spam, coming from a third party app, and blocks them. So I’m back to using the web interface, which is a pain because it’s not a great interface. I’m thinking of trying out Google Hangout again, see if they improved.
