    WeChat is a good app. The team has done so well so far, and it is really highly commendable. Nonetheless, there is more room for improvement. Please let the Technical Team consider the following. 1. There's no option to allow you correct grammatical errors and constructions. 2. There's no option to directly respond to a particular message. This sometimes make the chat difficult to follow. Please see if something can be done about these concerns. Full Review

    Usually this is an excellent app but everytime they do an update something gets changed for the worst. Now it appears to limit the size of file you send..ie video. Everytime it has update it gets ruined.i would give 5 * but fed up with the changes. Full Review

    Very difficult to sign in, the phone number verification code is whats troubling me. Please remove the phone number verify. Why can't we just sign in by fb which is WAY FASTER and less complex. Full Review

    Since I updated the app, it doesn't work at all. I click the icon, a picture of a moon appears and then nothing! Just shuts down. I have restarted my phone several times. Please solve this ASAP. I live in China and wechat is essential tool for me. Full Review

    6.6.1 update broke the ability to post to 朋友圈. Now I can click on the camera icon and choose up to 9 photos but can't proceed anywhere from there. You can still see other's posts, just can't post yourself. I'm thinking this is either a glitch or maybe I'm banned from posting for some reason now? If so I'll change the review accordingly once it's fixed or I have an answer. Full Review

    I can't sign up because when i put my number without the country code (it is already detected and added by wechat) i get "Invalid number" (Witch is not true) when i add country code i don't receive verification, because there will be tow county codes. A strange combination and ofcourse it won't work. I tried signing up with my facebook i gave permission to the app then they changed their mind telling me that it is impossible to sign with facebook for now. I tried to reach to the support there is no way for that when you don't have already a wechat ID. Full Review

    Asks for unnecessary permission otherwise it doesn't work. For example, even if I do not wish to use this app to share location or find nearby friends, it still asks for permission to my location and would just shot down if I deny its request. Same goes to contact information, permission to make phone calls, etc. I think that's pretty dirty. Full Review

    This app is ugly, asks for too many required permissions and is a half baked version of the true Chinese WeChat. Many features available on mainland Chinese phones built in WeChat are not available in this version. If it wasn't for the high number of users there would be no reason to use this app. Full Review

    The delay in messages seems to have worsen after the update as I'm just receiving messages my friends sent a week ago. I don't know if this is due to the network error I keep seeing whenever I open the app that is never fixed no matter how many times I tap the error message. Full Review
