Can anyone say “bloatware”? Does not open reliably with iOS11 on an iPad Mini 2. Half the time it hangs after showing the logo splash screen for anywhere from 10-30 seconds, then it will just close. When it does open, it is slower than molasses in January. I have a bunch of the iOS11 graphics/animation garbage turned off so my device performs reasonably well, this app is just poorly/inefficiently coded. Also does not reliably share messages across platforms as advertised. Sometimes it shows both incoming and outgoing texts on both the iPad and Pixel XL. Sometimes it only sees the messages that were opened on or sent from that specific device. Hence I have two mismatched and incomplete threads. C’mon Verizon. It’s a texting app. This ain’t rocket science... and I have a degree in rocket science, so I am qualified to make that assessment. More efficient coding, with an emphasis on reliability. Fewer widgets and “features”, more reliability and speed. Get on with it already.

Pretty Cool


This is a pretty neat app initially and has some awesome features. So far I have run into a couple problems with it already and I haven't had it more than 24 hours yet.. it won't let me load my info into the 911 response for some just tells me to try later (and I don't think I have to go into details at why that is important that the feature needs to work). I've also tried the auto reply feature, however it for some reason won't let me turn it on after I followed all the directions.

Also, I don't know if I'm missing something but I wish there was an option to be able to turn the alerts off because I don't want it on at all times and don't like getting 2 alerts every time I get a new text message.

Overall..after some updates have been made I think this will be a very handy app!

Really Verizon?

Tell me again how long you've been around? 🤔
Those of us who didn't have Verizon as our service provider had to download your app to receive a short video from a vacation with friends - per directions from the Verizon user's phone❗️ At first a small inconvenience 🙄considering all of the other phone providers were compatible, since the non Verizon phones 📱 were sending media back and forth all week.
Okay- App downloaded and video was sent, received..... 😏next you would save it to your gallery or share it in your social media or with family... nope😩. Trying to save it, it says "report spam" or "delete" are your choices. Verizon fix this!😠This does not make me want you as my service provider 😑quite the opposite.
1. You cannot save the media from your app, 2. now every time you open the app it downloads the video again and again. What a miserable experience and disappointment with the Verizon message app. 👎👎👎👎👎
