Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Facebook Messenger reviews

Problems with connectivity issues when both parties, over video call, have excellent wi-fi connections: During the call one or both individuals will have difficulties hearing the other. As in, someone is talking but not a word is heard. As this is the only app I know of, so far, that is socially integrated with the ability to share screens, it creates a lot of frustration. This only occurred with the last update, please resolve, we've uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.

I find the app very useful but there's a huge bug to be fixed. I have an android and the issue is with the bubbles interfering with other apps working properly once the bubble has popped up while using the keyboard in the other apps. A message about the app not being optimized for Android pops up. Then I have to restart my phone because I can no longer navigate my other apps due to freezing up. Please fix this.

New problem: group video chats effects don't go away once you turn them off, and 95% of the effects don't work when chosen. If you've scrolled to an earlier conversation, if your phone goes from portrait to landscape it will put you at the recent message in the convo, losing your place and having to start over. New issue: on Android, switching to landscape mode in video chat does not rotate the user's camera. I'm 90 degrees sideways. Happens every time.

Guesty reviews

All in all: pretty terrible. Notifications delayed. Tapping notifications doesn't open them. App signs out, sometimes multiple times a day (usually every couple days). Just onboarded my portfolio with Guesty but the shakiness of the mobile app is making me take pause with continuing using the platform. Would be eager to see changelog/timeline of fixes. This level of functionality is unacceptable given the cost of service. Better yet--focus on making a responsive browser app experience.

Your new updated app DOES NOT WORK. I continue to have problems and cannot use my phone for my business with your app. I am so disappointed that all your new roll out improvments were obviously not beta tested well enough. This has cost me so much valuable time!!!

- Catherine Ventling

One of the main reasons I signed up with Guesty is because they have the app. But it's very basic and keeps crashing and doesn't show messages in real time, some never show up and some with a few hours delay which makes the communication with guests very difficult. Support is also another big issue. I can only contact Guesty by email and they don't reply for days/weeks and even then their reply is rarely helpful. Extremely bad value for money, I'll have to cancel them if they don't sort it
