Palringo Group Messenger app review: time to get social!

Reviews

Introduction

Palringo Group Messenger is a nicely designed iPhone and iPad app made specifically for group instant messaging chats, but you might want to think twice before downloading it as there appears to be a great deal of censorship and abuse being reported by users.

I really like the idea behind this app so it’s a shame that it seems to have fallen into disrepute amongst some of the users; I haven’t spend enough time interacting with the agents and moderators to tell for sure but I do like the layout of the app as a whole so I can’t fault the functionality.

The flip side of this is that there appear to be issues with the way the service is being run, even down to things like some subjective interpretation of ‘blasphemy’ being listed under censorship guidelines in the terms and conditions.

I’m a little undecided about this app; my experience has been okay so far but as they say, there is no smoke without fire, so I wouldn’t be so quick to take the user complaints lightly.
