Straight bulls#%%&$$#t app. Nothing works at all except the wallpaper transfer. If u wanted attention u got it. U got something to show friends ur the next Bill Gates... F*$cking Not! That's not gonna work just like ur app doesn't. Try politics, u seem great at telling lies. Give up the app business before u go to prison for impersonating an app developer. Flunk it and Junk it!

Needs an update - Texting works

The fact that this app works at all on Win10 is pretty amazing considering it hasn't been updated in forever. The phone section has never worked on 10 but the texting works pretty well. These guys need to release a UWP version and add a little market share to their bottom line.

Ita really good sometimes I just really wish you could update it more so I could call, get messaged without them turning of my music, and get notifications properly. Thanks

Love it on my Android but notice on my Windows phone that when the ad refreshes while i am typing, it just erases all of it and have to start all over!😠 Other than that I really love it!

Love it!!! ❤ 💞 My dad only lets me have a plan where I pay for each text and I couldn't text any of my friends , but now I can virtually call or text anyone except for 911. Thank you so much for opening up my world and allowing me to communicate with whomever I want for absolutely free!

I love this app for texting messaging, the only problem that I have is that I can't make it receive calls, if I could do that this would be a 5, please fix this issue.
