  • Sometimes you get the same published message multiple times in a subscription.

  • Sometimes a subscription does not give you the message you expect. (i.e. messages get lost permanently)

  • Sometimes a message gets lost in pubnub until you send another one and those two messages come together

  • Almost no sensible error handling

  • Doesn't handle the subscribe timeout at all

  • packets are not ordered
