This app used to work at a 3.5 to 4 star rating. I only use text app about once a month. However, this month it booted me for lack of use. No biggie. But when I went to reset acct. the app seems to no longer be useable, also it gave me access to reset PW for an acct. that is clearly not my own. The user name was spelt different but I figured it was a server regimented change, until I saw the past text that are definitely not my own. Big problems! Now I have to worry that someone else may have access to my messages and the numbers of anyone I've contacted by this app. You have been warned! -5 stars!More
Overall this is a decent app. One of the few that i found that actually offered free texting and phone calls even if the receiver doesn't have the app. However, I allowed my 10 year old daughter to download this app on her tablet and while I usually don't mind ads, she had ads popping up for phone sex on many occasions... If you're going to have ads that's okay... But at least make sure the ads are friendly for all ages..More
Shuts down and freezes...calls not going through..no notifications sounds.not the text now I used to know.More
Would be a 5 star but calls don't go through and notifications don't always come at the right time!!More
Whoever made this app either needs to fix it, or take it off the store. It doesn't even open anymore at all.More
Just needs UI improvement and faster call and text. Also it would be great if credits could be transferred as texts and not just minutesMore
Can't make calls, and when I receive a text if the application is not open it doesn't notify me of a new message. Other then that it's a great app.More
I like it, it helps me keep in touch with my friends and my family, but it needs an update.More
This app worked well until I updated it today!!! It was great, I was able to purchase credits and make phone calls but now I can't do anything but text! Please help me get the old version backMore
It's pretty good. But sometimes you won't get some of the messages sent by the other person until a while later, which Is no good. And it has a tough time loading all of the time, which also isn't very good. The customization features are cool.More
