There have been several threads including my previous one and apparently nobody else has the issue besides a couple people... Odd.

Mine doesn't sync my ipad or iphone and I get a giant loading window that shows up all the time...

Is this not frustrating since it does not work properly at all. The iMessages Beta worked until the ML one-

Never seen that before. When I send something picture or excel file it is instant. Never had a bar pop up.

Well, message closes itself since I only use imessages and nothing else. This window shows up all the time and I have to clear it and repeat, again. Of course, whenever people imessage me on my phone and it blows up my OSX messages.

When I open my computer my iMessages I have initiated from Messages blows up, but they just stream in, no bars or anything. The people with iMessage that I only talk to on my phone and not from my computer do not go into Messages on my computer.

I keep Messages running all the time in the background and for some reason powernap does not take in the messages my phones gets throughout the day.

Ya, thats the feature.. Youre suppose to start the imessage from the computer or the ipad and it syncs the conversation on all devices. I love it because I hate texting and I can just type it.


BTW, 10.8.1 came out today and it said some Message fixes... we'll see.... I kinda think it won't fix my issue.

edit: It actually fixed the issue so far! No more sync flooding.

I have the same issue! When i quit iMessage I get some notification asking if I am sure because files are still transferring. I hadn't been transferring any files and they never finish.

yea, Its better after 10.8.1 but the timestamps are wrong. As an example--

I text someone back from my phone.. and they text me back. OSX's messages are flipped. Little detail, I guess. better than it freaking out anymore, yet.

It kept saying, "Review unread messages" and thats how I kept seeing that huge window with a ton loading bars. Havent seen that again since this morning. I think there will be a lot updates for ML.
