Ratings and Reviews
EDIT: I got a response from the developers saying I should be able to see old pictures... however I still can’t. The lastest update was on April 31. I have loaded the update page several times, but I haven’t seen a new update. Please fix what you said you did.
I have an iPod and got his app so I could text friends that don’t have an iPhone. This app works okay, but I cannot send videos which is annoying and sometimes the pictures take forever to send. I have gotten texts and calls from people I have no idea who are. A couple of the texts have been disturbing. I always block the number without replying back, but it is still annoying. Also a few months after I get a picture it will not load anymore which is annoying if I want to go back and look at them later. I have seen another free texting app which puts all pictures, etc sent to a certain number in one place much like iMessage and then you can go back and delete certain ones. I would like to see that feature on this app. Loading earlier texts and deleting individual texts are very very clunky. To delete a text you tap and hold the text and a bubble will pop up that says delete, but if you hold the text to long the bubble will disappear as soon as you lift you finger and even if you don’t hold it to long you have about a second to press delete before it goes away. The same goes for pasting text into a message. Please make this app better.
Hi there, thanks for your continued feedback. We recently made a change to your messaging history, including photo history. All messages should be saved to your account unless you chose to manually deleted them. This means that you should be able to see those old photos without a problem!
Works great but one weird issue....
I love TextNow! I have used it for years and it has had its share of bugs and glitches but they always get updated and fixed in the end! I will continue to use the app but I have experienced a few “Call Interferences” that kind of freak me out when they happen. It’s only happened about 3 times and I cannot find anything online about anyone else who is experiencing this issue but basically what happens is - I’ll be on the phone with my boyfriend or someone else and everything is just fine but then all of the sudden the call gets really staticky and a separate voice from ours enters the call as if we just called them and their answering their phone! At first I thought my boyfriend was messing with me but I have had this experience while talking to other people as well! When I respond to the voice they can’t hear us but I know I’m not crazy because the person I am talking to hears it to. Please look into this.
One Star Garbage
TextNow does absolutely none of what it advocates in its advertising as absolute for the call reception is poor even under the best of circumstances, i.e. excellent carrier/WiFi signals. In my case, the tools stopped working, there were no means to stop the screen from fading away once placing one’s hands or face near it, one couldn’t sign out of other locations/devices, and the app started actually cloning itself via my actual handheld device. If one uses a VPN, it will fight vigorously to break through the firewall so as to reveal your location. After further research into TextNow, users might want to use extreme caution before using this app as you might notice that many of your text communications, simply, disappear without a trace, especially those with pictures and/or attachments. You will notice, there’s no means to recover them or no genius at TextNow to contact for assistance.
What I do not understand is the number of you dumb users who are complaining about this lame app, but choose to grade it at 3/4/5. I guess, if I understood stupid, so would I’d be. This app is worthless!
