  • Google Chat

    by Lisa Holden

    A+

  • Ok

    by CrazyCap

    Serves it's purpose

  • Pro-esque Con-ey

    by Bounce Council

    Decent for connecting to friends who can't be on their phones at work. But the list of problems, from not being able to get rid of my keyboard to scroll back up to the previous posts, to not syncing with gmail. Meh...

  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • Fix the issues!!

    by Deltadiva9

    The app is ok but it has some issues I don't like. For one, lately when I receive a message it comes through 4 times! I hate that! It suddenly started doing that. Also, when I go in to check my messages, it doesn't pick up where I left off. I always have to scroll down to my most recent messages.

  • Inconsistent, but better than nothing

    by Eliza12

    App doesn't consistently deliver messages when you stay logged in or pull messages that were sent or delivered from another platform. Still I like having the option on the phone and mostly my friends do seem to receive what I send, especially when they're using the app as well (as opposed to being on a computer).

  • Love it

    by Sargezi

    Just download it in order to chat with my programmers who are online overseas when I am not at my desk. It is superfast, easy to use and I love it. Surprised to see some disgruntled clients but perhaps those were old versions.

  • Google chat

    by Pedro Clark

    I find google chat completely effective, easy to use, and it makes me so happy when I know that regardless of device, I can get to the people I care about and communicate with them immediately.

  • Google talk

    by Eric e mann

    Easy too use and fun and enjoyable

  • Crashes

    by Kmbw2010

    It's a good app. However, it crashes almost everyday. I'm sure it would work better with a google supported phone.

  • Perfect for work chat

    by 

    works great with google mail and chat via ipad, pc and phone

  • Hangouts is much better

    by iPhoneReviewer

    I downloaded both this app and google Hangouts the same day. Once I tried each I stopped using this app...Hangouts is so much better!

  • Pretty good

    by Picperfect21

    Very useful when you want to chat, but I am not happy with the way it shuts down on me all the time. That gets very frustrating. Other than that, it is a good app.

  • Good app serves the purpose

    by FollowKarma

    Use it

  • Love the app

    by NJIT Man

    I can keep in touch with all my contacts while I'm away from my computer! As of lately I've been experiencing disconnection issues after my ios 7 upgrade... Can we get an update?

  • Pretty good app

    by Rockie64

    Chatting is pretty good with this app, though it does crash every now and then. If you have auto log in selected you cannot really log out of it. Yet if you don't have it selected you have to log in every time you want to use it. A feature that allows you logout and receive SMS text would be a great addition. Handouts is a more user friendly option however Hangouts are linked to Google+, which I deactivated due to privacy and photo sharing issues.

  • Best one!!

    by Sweish V2

    Third time is the charm... Tried two others. Didn't work right! This one is great!! :)

  • Pos no invisible

    by Whywontitletmegive

    No invisible function. Puts you as online every time you reopen the app. Tired of google chat app not having invisible feature.

  • Basura!!!

    by Legna lavodnas

    Pague 1 dólar por esta basura? Es pura mentira lo de las notificaciones, que timo de aplicación. Que atraco.

  • Wow

    by Micheal Sanchez

    This app! If I could leave zero stars then I would of. I have the new iPhone 5s and it took 5 minutes to download, costs 99 cents and I can't even see responses from people who I am trying to talk to. Thanks

  • Does Not Work

    by Nico Paschalides

    Do not buy this app. Unless you like throwing money in the trash don't buy. I changed my google password and ever since it does not let me log in matter if I use the new or old password. I've changed my password multiple times confriming my log in with other devices and still no luck. I've even deleted and installed the app to no avail. Also chatting was an issue like other posts have mentioned. And you cannot customize your status. Lame lame lame. Except I am the idiot who bought it before I read the reviews...

  • Where is that last message?

    by Jarymokin

    I have gtalk on my phone & iPad & laptop. Chats also pops up when I open gmail on my laptop. The messages don't go to all the chats. I can be having a conversation with someone from my phone and think they didn't answer and the chat is over only to login to my email on my laptop and find their response on the chat Thread there. This is with my laptop turned off and no email open. It's very frustrating. This chat has made me think I would rather just text or talk on e phone. Don't care for it at all. The missing messages are frustrating and it's a pain to turn on my laptop, login to my email to see if I have any missing chats that did not come to my phone or iPad. There usually is one.

  • 3 minutes after I signed in my account was signed into from India

    by squirbel

    3 minutes after I signed in my account was signed into from India

  • Very clunky

    by rJ_hunny

    Not smooth/stable will iPhones. It keeps on crashing on me.

  • Time to Update!!!

    by Pinchymama

    I will be deleting this app soon if there is no update. It's frustrating that there's no consistency between my desktop and my phone--I want to see the whole conversation on both, not just whatever was typed on the device I'm currently using. It also needs a way to refresh manually. I know for a fact that a co-worker is online and it's showing them as away and/or vice versa. Please fix this app. It could be a very good one with some updates.

  • WORST app and very useless

    by Sandeep nakarakommula

    When the app is still running in background but it is going offline but in the features you said it will be online .. Stop cheating and block this bloody app!!

  • Update to iOS 7.

    by DHaldane1

    Needs to be fixed to work with iOS 7.

  • A bit confusing

    by Neskibutts

    I don't recommend buying this app. For some reason when I send chats the recipient gets them as emails, and I get chats sent to me as emails. The customizable chats are a neat feature but they don't make up for the lack of actually chatting.

  • Needs some updates

    by 1RasckalG

    Dissatisfied! Freezes a lot of times, doesn't quite work the way it should be. I don't get the other persons incoming chat sometimes. So some updates os some sort should fix it, hopefully.

  • Has a lot to fix

    by Ratonzin

    This app is not prepared for iOS 7, old UI and keeps disconnecting.

  • Bugz

    by DLaFleur

    So many Bugz need to be fixed. I keep appear logged out when I'm logged in

  • DOES NOT work as advertised!

    by Deontaer

    I have yet to receive a notification for active chats and the app logs me off as soon as I minimize it. I want a refund!

  • Weak App

    by Dagolola

    Have to leave app open to stay logged in. As soon as you move to another app or main screen it disconnects. Impossible to multitask. Also logs you in each time as available even if you prefer to be invisible.

  • Disgrace

    by StokinDembers

    Quite frankly, this app is a disgrace to gmail. It continues to close down when I am in the middle of typing a sentence and I can no longer view photos without the app closing out altogether. It is in desperate need of an upgrade which for some reason the company has not found it important enough to have, and I am constantly frustrated. The only reason I use this thing is so I can conveniently talk to friends and it's a pain just to do that. I would NOT buy this app. It's no better than the lite version. I only rated one star so I could write a review and warn everyone.

  • Sad... Used to love, now not so much

    by 2bgdgstn

    Before latest IOS update on my iPhone C this app worked great sent msg notifications and showed when peep were online. Now it doesn't do either. I bought the app thinking it would help, it doesn't even remove the ads. Please fix, very disappointed. :(

  • An OK app

    by CBeddies

    Pros: I can message back and forth with my husband while he's deployed and at work, since it is in sync with our gmail email addresses. Much easier than regular email. Cons: Messages appear twice on the scree each time either of us sends one. Does not sync messages across iPhone, iPad, and computer. If I start a chat on my phone, it does not sync those messages to my iPad or computer if I come back to the conversation on a different device. Each device holds only the conversation that was typed on that device. Push notifications don't always work, which was the whole reason I purchased the full version. Also, the app randomly shuts down when clicking on photos sent or received, and at random other times in a conversation. Overall, not a terrible app, but not fully functional either. Could definitely use some fixes as updates to make it more useful.

  • Crap

    by Alysabeth

    When exit, it disconnects; say you have to stay on app to chat...; so this app is crap....

  • Disappointed

    by Children of THE KING

    This app use to work great but then about a week ago I stop being able to receive messages all of a sudden. I can send but that's about it and that's only some of the time. Also, If I send using the app the response from the other person comes to my inbox almost 12 hours later. I have contacted support and haven't received a response. I understand that $1.00 isn't much but this truly need to fixed ASAP. I have seen other reviews about this issue, but have yet to see an update or fix for app not working as advertised. Please fix this ASAP because I truly enjoyed google chat over other chats. But looks like I'm going to have to find a new one if this app is going to continue to not work properly.

  • Used to love it

    by Saabycat

    Fix the app so that I'm online while it's running in the background. It used to notify me with my messages and now I'm not getting any at all when I leave the chat screen. It's really aggravating. I'm already searching for a new platform so fix it quick or I'm jumping ship.

  • Awful

    by lilLJ4

    Push never works!!! Get yourself together google!

  • Dumb

    by Dhawlat

    What s this ??? It's not showing push notification

  • Don't pay the extra $ it doesn't work!

    by CLong66

    I was surprised that even after paying for the app, still no push notifications and it shows me offline when I've not logged out. Sends all messages to chat email folder when I'm shown as "offline". Come on...I know you can do better! Or at least refund our money! iPhone 5

  • Terrible

    by bk786

    Alerts don't show up when someone messages you. You can send messages but can't receive apparently, such a waste don't bother.

  • HORRIBLE

    by Septembermel

    I paid $.99 for this app. I have alerts set up on my phone. However it NEVER alerts if I have a message. I emailed app support and got NO RESPONSE. VERY FRUSTRATING. it works fine if I'm on the computer but not working properly on iPhone.

  • I wasted $.99!!!

    by Eric75093

    App is slow and notifications don't work. This looks like a iPhone 4 app and is funny on the iPhone 5.

  • Stopped working entirely.

    by Youcanttigatag

    The app was working fine for a few days then I stopped receiving push notifications and then the app stopped working altogether. It will send my messages but I do not receive responses. If I log onto my desktop, I will see a bunch of missed gchat messages.

  • Keyboard is the worst!

    by Shelby Andal

    The letters/keyboard are shifted up about a quarter of an inch, so that throws off your typing. I find myself "back spacing" by accident ALL the time!

  • GoogleTalk

    by fernpower

    too many issues with this APP...I would not recommend it for IPhone users

  • Don't buy!

    by Linkywins

    I purchased this app verses the "lite" version specifically bc of the push notification feature. I unfortunately didn't read the reviews before hand, which I normally do, before purchasing an app that costs money. This app does not send push notifications like it states. I've even tried checking my gmail settings to see if I can set my iPhone (iphone4 running ios 6.1.3) to priority and the was no option to do so. I even ended my gmail chat session on my comp to see if it would make a difference and it still didn't send me push notifications. I tripled checked to make sure my "send push notifications" options was on and still no luck. My mistake was to purchase blindly without reading reviews bc it's a google app and google normally is very good with their products. Very disappointed. Please do not purchase until they work out the bugs.
