User reviews of ChatSecure
Really Cool App love the secured messaging features I use it all the time with my business.

Too many bugs Often doesn't shut down properly, doesn't connect repeatedly but shows account as online regardless, so you always have to look at contacts to see if you're connected for real. Spews nonsense error messages like "disconnected for wrong password" when connections are lost. (saved password and talking via the same account minutes ago)..And not a bug but unwieldy is that you have to manually bring the contact list up and it doesn't show which contact belongs to which account.

Won't shutdown and lock Sg3 4g Not too sure if it is working as it supposed to. Speak to someone on another phone and messages don't seem to come through. Also have to force stop to exit app. Could be orbot?....

Useability issues / 14.0.7-beta 2 on 4.2.2. I did not find a way to remove account. Also, when adding a contact, the account list to choose from shows only my username, which is not good when having same username on different servers. One more issue: no way to easily disconnect/reconnect an account. There should be a button for this on accounts view. About contacts lists, they should show the associated account, and hidden if an account is not connected.

Just one crucial usability point I started the app and was faced with a minimalistic message about adding my Google account and underneath that a green rectangle with "Add Account" in white letters. That's it nothing choice or settings button - but I didn't want to add my Google account. I was tearing my hair out for nearly 30 minutes until I found by accident that you have to slide the screen to the left. That's what the blue dots mean. Was I supposed to know that somehow?!?!? It is fine now I got past that, except I can't figure out how to import my keys from Pidgin OTR.

Encryption won't work I'm unable to start an encrypted chat session and as such, can't sent files to anyone. Am I doing something wrong? Also, there's no option to change avatar images which would be nice.
