it would be nice for a proper chat box panel, the current “chat balloon” seems to overlap each other and always tend to miss earlier messages.
I think what the developers should look at are some examples of what are called “toast” notifications. These are alert boxes that stack up and disappear after a defined period of time. This mode is better than overlapping.
I am finding that sometimes the overload of messages prevents me from being able to press some buttons at the top of the screen (iPhone app). The messages hide the menu button and we have to wait until the message disappears to press the button… Suggest to maybe have a separate section for messages?
