Can't message friends

As of september 13, I can't message friends .. the app keeps force closing on me and I uninstalled the app twice.

Memory hog

I hardly ever use the app but in addition to the ~120mb app size it always hogs ~200mb in "documents and data."

Update of Sept. 13

With the last update messenger didn't open at all on my IPhone 6.

Update created bugs to fix:(

The latest update does not allow you to open the window and see all of your friends who are currently active in Messenger. Please fix it. Now you can 'see all' of your recent correspondence, but there is not a similar 'see all' option for active friends. Before the update this was possible.

Won't open

Not working after the latest update. I use iphone 6

Your app I've used forever but the most recent update on the night of sept 14 it won't send messages through and it takes around 5 mins for the person to get the messages and is very obnoxious!!! Please fix this soon!

Won't open!
Gets me soon points

I downloaded the update on my iPhone 6s and it won't let me open or uninstall messenger. Just dark and says waiting ?????

Tired of crashing app

I use this app every single day. Even more than I use my actual texting app. I have multiple messages that I can't read because the app is constantly crashing. It won't stay open for more than 2 seconds. I don't have access to my laptop very often so it's kind of a nuisance to not be able to check my messages.


Keeps on closing , i have logged out of facebook and restarted my phone but it still wont stop closing . This app wont even work !
