While we appreciate the desktop app, it does use a lot of RAM, and is rather slow on a 12gb core i7 laptop. WHich leads me to believe it is only a 32-bit application, preventing it from accessing larger amounts of RAM to run smoother. While it is compatible with a 64-bit operating system, it is not optimized for a 64-bit system. Why not create a second version that is 64-bit only, so it can access more RAM so it can run smoother on 64-bit systems?
I end up using the webapp because it is so much more faster than "messages +" desktop app. I'm simply suggesting an idea that would greatly speed up the desktop application.
