Doesn't Work 1/5
Can't connect. Total rip off
No instructions. Bad app. Not user-friendly. 1/5
I cannot get this app to work, nor can the other person that I am trying to reach in the UAE. There are no instructions or FAQs, or help section.
Voice not clear 1/5

Very good just need time to work and expensive 5/5
Very good application The only problem just Need to wait One day for the application to work after you buy it.
The advertisement are annoying.
Rip off 1/5
It should say it all that we are forced to download this app.
Tried Video calls but only the audio works.
Not working 1/5
The video call is not working
Ads keep interrupting the video calls. Although this is paid to Etisalate. This ads should stop
Can’t talk more than one minute. Disconnecting all the time
UAE connection issue 1/5
Not able to connect to UAE even after they paid for subscription!

البرنامج لابأس به ولاكن عيبه الإعلانات
3rd class app 1/5
Poor quality.. no use of making payment also..
Can’t reach the people a.m. calling
Have been hoodwinked into getting it. It’s terrible. With so many free calling apps out there, I feel dumb paying $30 a month for access.
Crappy App 1/5
Looks like Eisalat got itself a good deal with the app developer, whom I couldn’t find anything about her other than having this useless app.
So, Etisalat / Du monopolize the calling from the UAE and we have to subscribe to this obligatory 4G calling plan for 50 Dirhams / month, and funny enough, this App doesn’t work.
You get disconnected every 50 plus seconds, and calling other parties becomes frustrating.
The app developer is an amateur one, no contact details nothing, just an email and they don’t have the courtesy to reply back to many of the trouble tickets I submitted.
To make it short:
1- The app doesn’t work on 4G or WiFi
2- Etisalat unfairly is charging 50 dirhams / month (plus taxes)
3- The developer doesn’t respond and doesn’t honor any sense of support or technical assistance
- Etisalat / Du monopolizing the connectivity in the UAE, they have the upper hand in blocking or unblocking what people can use
To make it short, USELESS APP, DOESN’T EVEN WORTH A ONE STAR
Garbage - But our only choice. 1/5
This app is terrible but it’s all we are able to use in the UAE. With everything else blocked we a forced to use this app with poor video quality, frequently dropped calls and no landscape mode. If you have a choice use something else.
Sound always disconnect and sometimes there is echo and noise over the voice
Good but sound 5/5
By Damith s
It’s better than all.but sound quality should be improve
Need to be upgrade 3/5
By Naeem khan durrani
Voice and video quality is not like Skype.
Not showing online or offline. 1/5
By ARIF Chittagong
This app is not showing about users online status. How can I know that the receiver is in online or not? Is he/she still using this app or not? If used when did he/ she use it last time?
Not a good app.
BOTIM service 1/5
By Rula Mandour
I downloaded the app to communicate with my daughter in Dubai and this app is useless
They are charging my daughter for subscribing with them but their phone and text service is not working
I am amazed that the USE took the decision to ban the people from using whatsApp, Viber, face book phone calls which are used by nations of third world countries and here we are in an upscale country that banned these services
Is it lack of money in Dubai??
What is the reason behind that
Battery drain! 1/5
I am forced to use this app to speak and video chat with people in Dubai. Half the time it doesn’t work at their end. The app drains hell lot of battery! Make sure you don’t use this app when traveling or when you are not around the charger..
Trying to push more apps 1/5
I just uninstalled it immediately after installing. It’s showing adds all the time on top. I am with Apple because I hate such sick apps. I don’t need this add showing app. I am happy with WhatsApp and iMessage
Don't subscribe to any plan!!! 1/5
Just installed the app, which doesn't function - calls merely do not go through even when connected to wifi. Don't suggest to subscribe to any plans from Du/Etisalat before it is fixed!
Kindergarten App 1/5
This app was devised by children. Years behind FB Messenger or WhatsApp. An insult to Etisalat customers and only used due to the monopoly of UAE communications. Shame.
Not receiving SMS to activate acct 1/5
I’m not receiving the sms to activate my account. Please fix it, I need to use the app.
Poor service/ connection 1/5
My sister pays to use this service in UAE, and it is not even worth a dime of her money... horrible connection, drops calls, poor audio video
Not working anymore! 1/5
When installed a week ago, it was working fine. Now my call cannot be complete. I sent an email to them, and I’m waiting for the replay. Very disappointed! :-(
The worst video call app ever. 1/5
Horrible. Cant connect properly. Full of adds once the add is on u cant go back to the video. I subscribed and i am paying dot this service a lot and still its not working as promised.
The worst video call app ever.
Bad service 1/5
It's totally useless as nothing works
Needs work 1/5
There is always a horrid feedback on video calls. And the voice and video stick a lot.
Badly made 1/5
Screen keeps locking while in video, orientation is all messed up. I guess people are forced to used this app which is the only reason it has so many downloads.
Could not connect any single call since I installed ..
Has some annoying “features” 1/5
The thing keeps asking for access to contacts..needs to be a way to tell it for sure I don’t trust it with my personal data!!!
Babu CP 5/5
Excellent App !!Good clarity. Hope this state will continue.
By Anaaaaas an
Whenever an ad appears I cannot remove it and i need to cancel the call and call again
Pictures don’t go through 1/5
Sending pictures to other users does not go through, or does not go smoothly through. Time to fix this especially since the app has somehow been promoted by Etisalat to replace other video and messaging apps against a monthly fee. Videos sometimes hangs and the user interface is dull and boring.
Why Cant I Download this on my desktop? 2/5
It's annoying to have to stick to using my iPhone to use this app. This should be compatible for desktops as well. I understand the idea of banning Skype, but the plans for this app per month are not cheap for everyone... unfortunately.
Group call support 4/5
Hi Guys! I am paying for the app but still can find tons of ads which is frustrating. But it's fine as I don't get a choice. Can you please add group call support for this app will be great.
This NEVER WORK AT ALL 1/5
My family in UAE pay monthly for this app because apparently his country banned the free video call that really works. With NO CHOICE, we tried to use this but not working AT ALL. :(
Fun app 5/5
They got my credit and got no service 1/5
I subscribed and till now can’t get it to start, why is that?
It works... 3/5
By Product Inventor
For being one of two voip applications allowed in the UAE, this is a poor product. It doesn’t interface well at all with Bluetooth devices like headphones. You can’t turn off the screen while on a call (the call is ended). Looking forward to getting the value from my money (50 AED/month on 4G).
Rip Off 1/5
The operators in UAE closer all internationally known FREE VOIP services and forced people to use this app for a monthly fee. Even the monthly fee was implemented in a crooked way. Welcome to 2018 where the expats of UAE were all ripped off and taken hostage by greedy operators. I wonder where the international community and human rights is on this matter.
Poor service and non functional app. 1/5
I subscribed to the Internet calling plan on wifi 3 weeks back. I’m in the UAE where VOIP calls have been banned and people are now compelled to subscribe and pay for BOTIM to make video calls. Initially it worked well. I use to call family and friends in the US and UK. For the past 4-5 Days, calls are unable to go through in-spite of repeated attempts. I called Etisalat and they are useless as well. What are we paying so much of money for? Or is this another scheme to loot people? This is a worthless app. I feel helpless now and don’t know how else to see my loved ones. Shame on you for swindling people of their hard earned money.
Not Skype quality, Paying 100 AED per month 1/5
Paying 100 bucks in the uae for this crappy app with no desktop version and it’s not as sophisticated as Skype.
Plus video and call quality is poor too.
No connection at all from either side!
By Halima Al-Shahabi
Botim is really a good app with clear voice & video calls..! All the best 👍🏼
