Jelly Users Reporting Bugs, Spam

By: Chris Crum - January 9, 2014

Jelly, the new social, mobile picture-taking search app from Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, has been out for two days now. People have been reporting various bugs with the service, and even spam.

As I mentioned in my initial thoughts about the app, my phone locked up when I tried to connect my Twitter account to it, causing me to have to take my phone battery out and reinsert it. It has worked fine for me since then.

But others are mentioning various other issues. A colleague had his iPhone lock up trying to download it from the App Store.

Others were having issues with Twitter connectivity, as Jelly tweeted:



Some have had other issues:



At least Jelly appears to be working to get everything fixed quickly.

There has also been at least one report of spam (as if that wasn’t going to happen):


I imagine this will get worse before it gets better. Hopefully people can find some legitimate business uses for Jelly.
