What about that Chat input field thing?
We shared your pain, (some of us use iPhones, too) so we made some changes. We started from scratch and completely rebuilt this control for a smoother and less buggy experience.
Pasting text now correctly sizes the input.
The attach file & Send Buttons stay at the bottom – within reach of your fingers.

Finding rooms and people has just gotten a lot easier. Exact matches show above the fuzzy search matches.
For example, searching the term “Marketing” will put rooms starting with Marketing above rooms with the word Marketing in the middle of the name.
Some folks have experienced problems when sharing files from Dropbox – this is no longer an issue, share away.
We’ve also made many other fixes and improvements under the hood as well. Things move faster, there’s no lag and zero clutter. The movements are seamless and natural. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, HipChat for iPhone will rock your world. So, yeah – Happy Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza or whatever holiday you choose to dance to.
