Great ap! 4/5
By Big D4u2
Pretty cool to talk to peeps around the world and almost have a community of support and answer to any question burning in your mind!
Better before 3/5
I’d say up until 3 years ago... this app was perfect. Sure trolls existe(but that’s everywhere). But this app honestly changed. Y life for the better. People on here helped me get over past relationships, given me advice on what I should do with my future, hell... even met a few of my closest friends on here.
But now? As small as this may seem...
POP UP ADS!
Also the fact that my conversations are not transferring over from my old to new phones, which to my respect... I’m pretty stupid for not getting some people’s contact information on other apps. But that would be great if that transfer over system actually worked.
Back to the ads thing, I can’t click anywhere on the screen without getting a pop-up (if not several).
Just 2 of my gripes... not to mention groups is broken aswell, possibly allow others to moderators to groups? Some page creators haven’t touched their groups in months (if not years) so allowing others to moderate it while they’re gone could prove to be a good thing.
Anyway, best of luck to the app... hopefully of the things I suggested get looked at.
Non-information Notifications 1/5
I set my notification settings to only tell me about hearts and replies yet I still got nonsense push notifications like “What’s your first musical memory”. I will bump to 5 stars when this is fixed.
Should be called “Adwhisper” 1/5
Any app that has ads pop up and take you directly to the app store w/ out being prompted is guilty of forcing apps down your throat and deserves less than one star, especially when those apps/games are of the stupid casino slot machine type. Lame..
I really like this app but... 3/5
I Love using whisper, it helps get things off my chest. My only problem is I can’t send chats? When I try and send a message it doesn’t says that something went wrong. Then when I try to send it again it displays the same message. Again I love this app but, it would be nice if my chats were working.
Fun app! 4/5
Great app to kill time and meet cool friends
Can’t even try 1/5
By Lulu loo999999
The app won’t even open. Update I still can’t open the app. Really really disappointed
Way to many ads! And they always pop up at the wrong time!
Stop it 2/5
Really wish my app would stop jumping to my App Store. Please fix this issue. Really? The nickname irritated is already taken? 😂 😂 That should tell you something.
Ads ads and more ads 2/5
By Chrome stinks
You’re not allowed to use this app for more than 15 seconds at a time without watching a 20 second ad
Thank you to those that use it the way it is intended and for the “blind” support.
I love it 5/5
By غدي الحربي.
This application is a lifesaver
Great app 5/5
I have... a lot of issues and putting things out there really helps.
I love this app 5/5
This app is great for helping me say what I want to say although some of the people on here are stupid I still love it
Ads are annoying 1/5
I get the point of ads. But when it force opens your App Store to download something and you go back to the whisper app, and it forces you right back into the App Store repeatedly that’s an issue.
Great! - but a suggestion 4/5
This is a pretty great app when used for positive inquiry. I’ve even come to better understand the trans community, (still learning), and have shed my initial judge-mental attitude. There have been many patient people willing to educate me.
However, when one person dominates a group of 3k people and continually flames everyone and everything, I wish I could just have a block option so their posts don’t enter my feed. I dunno, it’s a free app - making suggestions seems selfish.
Retrieving my info 4/5
Not a review but really hoping this will help anything is worth a shot. I can’t seem to remember a “pin” I set to get back on my old whisper. The only reason I care so much to get on there, is a friend of mine took his life three months ago, and all I want is to retrieve our messages... there were so many good ones, and I just want to read them. Please someone help me, I would be so happy if I could just go through our conversations again...
Some Concerns. 2/5
I have to constantly force quit the app to see if I have any new messages in my chats. The number of ads are fairly appropriate given it’s a free app, and the ads are what are used to ensure the app is free but it could be better.
If you want to use it as a hook up app then it’s for you . Way to many kids on here and creepy adults . This app should be monitored some but its not.
Looking for more? 3/5
By Lisa the lezzie
This app is great because you can post anonymously, but on just about everything you post you will get people asking your age sex location (asl) or they flat out solicit you for sex. If they aren’t doing that then they are either belittling what you posted about or trying to be supportive & uplifting.
There are lots of post about people wanting to get high with someone, usually asking you to pay for their weed.
So if you’re looking for a hook up either weed or sex this app is for you...
If you want to feel worse about yourself this app is also for you.
Broken App 1/5
This app has great potential except for the fact that it’s completely broken. 9 out of 10 times my post disappears before showing up in the group or near by.
Adds are ruining this once fun app 1/5
By Chad Stiffy
I am being redirected to the App Store or forced to watch an ad almost ever 30 seconds. This is absolutely ridiculous. Fix your ad system whisper.
I’ve used to this app since like November. And I deleted it like 2 months ago and now I’m back and it’s AWFUL. Why in the world does it keep transferring to the App Store. Please correct this or delete the whole app! Poor services.
Too many pop-ups 1/5
By Reminder to be Fair
I understand the basis of a free app is going to be advertisements. It’s how you make your money and stay afloat. But 12 pop-up adds in a row is excessive. Pulling someone out of the app, to go to an App Store for another app makes it tedious.
Every time you’re in the app but every five seconds it wants to divert you to the App Store for random app. So I updated it thinking it would solve the problem and still continue to be a problem. The app would be amazing without it but to me it makes app almost worth not using.
I like it but..... 2/5
By Scorpion Queen92
Every time I’m on it, for some reason it sends me to the App Store
By Mr h-town
This update made the app bad every few chats and goes to App Store needs to be fixed
Too many ads 1/5
Every click and bam a friggin ad every friggin time!!! Ahahhhh!🤬🤬🤬 can’t even have a conversation with someone because it opens my App Store LITERALLY every other tap 🤬🤬🤬
Ads EVERYWHERE! 1/5
While I’m aware that developers/apps need money to continue running, the Whisper App seems to take that to an extreme. Every time I click or start to scroll I’m sent to the App Store in hopes that I’ll download the app. Ads pop up randomly and I couldn’t even last fifteen minutes on it before deleting it.
Love it, ads are annoying 2/5
The ads have gotten progressively more annoying, and it’s a shame because whisper is a really fun app.
Sketchy Developer/ad Forcing 1/5
The developers make money from FORCING your phone to all kinds of random sites and apps in the App Store. One second you’ll be browsing, the next your phone just opens a web browser and goes to one of their advertisers WITHOUT clicking on a link. I’ve never seen an app that is so shady as to force your phone to their advertisers.
Whisper KILLS your battery. Whenever I open the app my phone gets hot and my battery will start to drop by a few percent every few minutes. It’s obvious it’s working my phone as hard as it possibly can. If you wanna chat with someone; forget about it. A full iPhone battery will be dead in an hour.
The app also gets SUPER laggy after only a few minutes of use until it is virtually unusable. I’ve deleted and reinstalled and it doesn’t seem to help. Other users report the same.
Content is fun and intriguing, but the programming of this app is terrible.
Oh, and forced ads are super annoying.
I originally downloaded this app two years ago because I was told by my friends, and my counselor, that it was a good place for people with severe anxiety and depression to de-stress a bit. I remember having fun talking to others with similar interests and getting encouragement and support from everyone.
I recently redownloaded the app out of curiosity. It is an utter travesty. People who are soliciting money and sex are on every other post on every forum and group, Bots seem to outnumber people, you never seem to be able to see the posts you make to groups- they either are deleted or kept temporary - nor can anyone, the groups are very limited, the adds are unbearable....
THE ADDS- good lord! I was having a conversation with someone I replied to, when -as I was typing my response- the app sent me over to the App Store. I thought nothing of it, I closed the Store, and returned to my conversation- but it happened again, this time for another, separate app. Now I became frustrated. I battled with the app like this for nearly five minutes- close, return, send, close, return, send, close, return..... until it finally stopped. The adds very from pop up videos that are just to short to be skippable, pop ups that appear when you don’t have you finger on the screen for a millisecond, and transfers to sketch websites while scrolling- as it assumed you pressed on the banner add on the other half of the screen, sending you to a site for hemroid cream when the banner advertised razors. The app had the gall to push itself to the side when I double tapped the home button, meaning it tried to keep me on scrolling up on the Store and Safari!
The state of the app: barely functioning at best, depraved hub for scammers at worst. Either things need to be fixed, or the app needs to be removed from the AppStore.
4 times and counting today 1/5
I’ve used this app since 2012. It crashes every time it switches to an ad in the itunes store and I switch back. Especially during lengthy messages that forces me to retype everything almost every message at this point.
Works horribly 1/5
Constantly kicks you out and opens their advertisements in your App Store! Supper annoying and will repeatedly do it several times in one minute. Also, sometimes doesn’t show notifications and deletes the whispers. So many bugs!
Pop up ads are the bane of my phone 1/5
I understand why Whisper features ads (it's a free app!) but what I don't understand is why I'm being bombarded with pop up ads! I literally just closed 20 pop ups in a row and have given up on viewing a message. These pop up ads REALLY drain my phone (10% is insane for 1 minute!) I wish Whisper would just have regular in app ads instead of ads that take you to the Apple Store or a link.
Build from group up 1/5
There's just no amount of cleanup that would make it better, redo everything, better.
– NEW! Ads now open Safari and the App Store multiple times in a row! Uninstall
– "Related" whispers, shown after posting a whisper, have the exact same content as the "popular" whisper tab; this is redundant and unnecessary.
– There is no way to clear the "Activity" list, removing the already-read notifications; the app with a fresh account (and no notifications) goes much faster than an older account (with multiple, old notifications)
– Repositioning text while composing a whisper is mostly useless now, as the posted whisper ignores all positioning, resetting the text to the middle.
– The notification bubbles on the "Chat" and "Activity" tabs are inconsistent: White bubble around the number icon, showing mismatched sizes; those changing depending if the tab is selected or not. Just make it all one thing.
– Bad navigation for larger screens, needs gestures! Like Swipe-down to close a whisper.
– Has been a good week without getting an unwanted notification for "popular" whispers, I wonder how much time it'll be before you push those unwanted notifications back again.
I understand having ads, but stop taking me away from the app!! 2/5
I like using this app. It's helped me communicate with people experiencing the same things I was going through and it helped me cope. But holy heck, the amount of ads is nothing short of ludicrous!! Banner ads along the bottom? I understand that. It's tolerable. Occasional full page ads? Fine by me. But persistently taking me out of the app and into the app store TEN TIMES WHEN I'M TRYING TO POST?!! Absolutely unacceptable. That right there is extortion. Forcing people to pay to use your free app. It only seems to be "free" so you can potentially get out of serious claims, by saying "well, you don't have to pay. We have a free version". Jeez... How many people in the board room agreed that this was a good implementation? Did they even consider personally testing it to see if it's even a good idea? I'm only giving this two stars because it was actually useful once. Otherwise this isn't even worth the generosity of one star.
This app drains the crap out of my phone battery
The app used to be great! Now every other time you touch the screen while using the app it takes you to an add or straight to the App Store to download a game. Pretty much unusable at this point.
By H Sim
I love this app, it’s great and it has helped a ton with my depression. But my messages stopped working last night and apparently many others are having the same issue, once that is fixed then it’s 5 stars.
Now AD's take over my experience on Whisper. Instead of being at the bottom, these annoying app Ad's take up the entire screen. Just like spam.
So many adds 1/5
O hate the fact that there is so many adds i this app and it gets me out of the app sometimes when I'm Writing there should be a way to stop them
Ads are annoying!! 1/5
Keeps opening the apps store app for me to download games!!
New Update is Trash 1/5
I get the purpose of blocking chat for people that get blocked too much but a lot of times people will block you for no reason at all so people will get their chat suspended for nothing. I think it should be based on reporting people instead of the amount of times you’ve been blocked.
Horrible lately 1/5
As if late you are taken to the App Store over and over and over again. It won’t go back to the app until you close the app and reopen...and the problem begins again. It’s so annoying.
Ads are intrusive 1/5
Slowly becoming a hookup app like CL personals lol. But also the ads take me to download apps from the App Store when I’m mid typing
Chats not working 1/5
Everytime I send I get oh nos! Something went wrong please try that again later
Yeah it’s cool 5/5
By O dear lord
Excessive and abrasive Advertisements 2/5
We understand you need ads to make a profit off of the app, but it’s extreemly frustrating when the whisper app will suddenly send you to the App Store. This can happen 3-4 times in the middle of typing responses, chats, new whispers etc. it also causes glitches in being able to respond/scroll through responses. I guarantee you, and you can tell your adverts this, I don’t bother to Check what app is being advertised. I immediately either close down whisper or hit the back button before seeing what you want us to see. I tried emailing you this through the App Store, but it said it failed. So I’ll try on here.
