Having problems with push(?) notifications... App has to be open to receive calls, not just be running in the background. Also call quality needs review; party called using app has an almost rotary stutter. A standard ring back tone would be helpful as well so users don't think the app is not working, since the in-call timer never starts counting until the other end picks up. I'm not giving less than three stars because of the fact that this app IS free, it's an awesome alternative to paying out the ears on a monthly cell phone plan, you just need Wi-Fi. I've missed numerous calls simply because the app was not open. Please fix and I'll rate with additional two stars. Please, PLEASE... And thank you. It's on the right track.

I believe this app is amazing!!! You may not be able to do calls for a long time, but being able to text and send pictures as you please is amazing! great way to stay in contact, thank you TextNow! 😊

Fun and easy and texting is good. But can receive pics and the notification and sound doesn't work. Only vibrate works!! Plz fix!

Love it except I can't add credits..i tried bring them also doesn't ever give me ads either. Notifications are turned on but never get I one unless the app is open constantly

I love this app so much, but it has a few problems. Sometimes it will randomly close, it closes if you try to go far up to look at old messages, and calling. Its a bit static, and minutes for calling don't come back. In short, almost perfect. If all these bugs are fixed I will rate 5 stars and recommended this to everyone.

Finally, the new update!! It isn't laggy and slow, you can call, and its way more efficient! Thank you I will now give this 4 stars

I love the app! I can customize my conversation without downloading any other app. I just wish it would let me call on Windows phone like it does on android... Please fix!!

I don't know what you guys did w the latest update but I can't see anything when I'm typing a message. I've changed the theme quite a few times and that doesn't fix the issue. Besides the app starts very slowly and when I hit send it takes a few seconds for the text to leave.

I liked it up until this current update.y live tile no longer has a picture, and neither does the notification spot on my lock screen. And it doesn't notify me anymore when I get a text message
