Thank you! - Hello Raffael, I am updating my review in order to thank you. Chat Heads seems to be running fine now that the beach-ball-of-death issue has been resolved. The user list is working and I am able to communicate with my friends list. Thank you for this! I will report any issues if it arises!

Needs Group Chat Functionality - PLEASE bring group chats to this app! I hardly use Facebook chat for single conversations so the app is completely useless to me unless it has group chat functionality. I can’t speak for how good the app is because I can’t use it :( It looks like a really nice interface and I was really excited when I heard about it.

Works good, needs group chat - The new update works for me now (the last version would freeze when I clicked the “+” button). Cool little app, but as someone else mentioned, it really needs group chats. I too use facebook messenger more for group chats than one-on-one.

Need stickers - I can see the emoticon button is already presented. So, a sticker button will be better :-D Cheers!

Love it! - Raffael (the developer) has done a great job. It’s a great app and it allows me to keep messaging friends and family without having to have a facebook tab open in my browser, which is distracting. I love how my conversations are just floating on the side of the screen and I can even sort of hide them. At first I thought the picture of the smiling woman was a bit annoying, then I saw on the settings that you can use your own profile picture for the dock icon, how cool is that! It’s just perfect for me, I rarely use group chats, but apparently that’s a FB restriction and third parties can’t do anything about it. So the developer is not to blame for the lack of that feature. I hope we can keep enjoying this wonderful app for a long time. I already sent a message to FB.
