Finally added the gallery. They still need to make it so you can see more than 4 messages at once.

Candide yams says:

I really think GroupMe should become the Hangouts or iMessage of Windows Phone. It already has the functionality built in to be a messenger. I think Skype is great but I don't see why they have two really strong messenger apps available, especially when one app (Skype) has still not caught onto the level that iMessage and hangouts has.

I use it every day

AJFoegen says:

Can't wait to get this--one of my most used apps on WP8

ram7489 says:

Is there gonna be a version of the app for the 512MB RAM devices? We had it back in June-July, but dunno, it somehow disappeared from the store for us.

poddie says:

I have it on a 520. Haven't tried today's update, but it hasn't previously been limited to 1GB.

ram7489 says:

Okay, I guess my carrier doesn't support it - I'm on Airtel, India. It ain't listed in the carriers supported by GroupMe on their international-availability page.
Thanks anyway, buddy. :)

poddie says:

Ah, strange.  I updated the 520 tonight and it worked fine, so it's definitely mot 512MB invcompatible.  Sorry it won't work for you!

ram7489 says:

Never mind. Changed the region to US and it showed up. :D
Guess it ain't available for India yet.

AkAdam says:

Love this App and I use it everyday with my friends that use iPhones and Android devices. I just wish it supported landscape typing! I have big hands and I always type in landscape when I use regular text messaging.

Ankmeyester says:

maybe you should use your fingers instead of your hands next time :P

AkAdam says:

Or maybe T-mobile should pick up a Lumia 1520 variant so I can get a phone with a big ass screen!

ner9y says:

They must find a way to combine Skype and this one. 

poddie says:

Not sure if this is new, but you can go to contacts and message someone individually which is cool. But my wife says on her android that automatically made us a group, but on WP it does not. You have to go back to the contact list, and there is no easy way to see they messaged you without a group. Also, the counter on the live tile does not seem to be resetting since I messed with this.

poddie says:

Uninstalled and reinstalled... this works great now, and the individual does now show up as a group. Very cool!

Yakko Warner says:

I just wish they'd add the features that are already on iOS & Droid, like the "chip in" feature (which isn't directly available on the web app, either).  Someone in one of my groups set one up, and the only way I could access it was by going back to the automated announce message and tapping the link.

nognats says:

Did they add gif support yet?

luimende says:

wish you could delete contacts.
