Frustrating. Lacking. Barely Works.

It's great to be able to text on here when it is working. Although it's lacking in some basic features - like contact names - it does a good job at delivering and receiving texts when it does work. I don't know what the issue is but lately if you close out the program and try and open it up again, it loses all of your data and wants you to enter your area code for a new number, then fails to do that, giving you an error message. If I want to use this app, I have to uninstall it, then reinstall it, and not close if out. If I do close it out, I have to uninstall it and reinstall it, then sign in again. So I don't want to use it anymore. It has some serious flaws.

Android it's pretty good, but Win 10 it needs work

It's a good app to message people, but I would recommend adding an emoji board. On Windows 10, all we can do is message people. I can't even open or look at pictures people send me, and you can't download the pics they send you too. You have to go to the website to do anything.

Bleh!!! Throw it out the Window!

What's with this app? On Android it's awesome, like having a separate, second line. On Windows 10 (not surprised) it simply sucks! Now I've got to find an app that supports multiple phone numbers and instantly sends the notifications to my laptop, allowing me to reply. Hopefully the app will support SMS, MMS, & Windows 10. I know very little about coding, I'm no expert, novice at best. Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm sure coding still supports the basic concept of "if X=Y then execute A". TEXTNOW -- Please review your source code. All the A's are missing. If there are any app developers that run across my comments please contact me ASAP. I've got other app ideas well - maybe we can work together.

Be warned.

I downloaded it on my iPhone but it didn't work. Then I downloaded it on my windows phone and windows laptop but still didn't work. I went to the website and I found out that you can subscribe to their affordable plans which I got really excited about since I'm always looking for a cheap call, text, data plan. But then I found out my phone had to be a sprint device so my unlocked phone is not eligible because it's from at&t. I'm not gonna buy a new phone for this plus their phone selections are poor anyway.

Very basic, and not very fluid

This app does what it intends to do: send and receive texts. But it's super basic and barebones given what features its Android/iPhone counterparts have. How come we can't make calls from this one? Or customize the theme? Also, on Windows 10 version, you always have to scroll the messages in order to have newly received ones show. I think it's time for an update, as this TextNow app has just the slightly-broken bare essentials and nothing else; pretty disappointing.

Excellent phone service

They have wonderful cheap prepaid phone plans that can be used on any device that textnow can be downloaded on.
