Burner Connections is a revolutionary platform that connects your phone number directly with apps you love, like Dropbox, Slack,and Evernote.

*** NEW Google and Slack integrations ***
Our new Google integration gives Burner users a brand-new ability to archive and log text messages and contacts to Google Sheets in real time, fulfilling a popular feature request. Our improved “Slack 2.0” integration gives Burner users more control over how teams can use Burner from within Slack, as well as a brand-new ability to connect Burner to Slack on a private basis, effectively acting as a desktop client for Burner and a way to “phone-enable Slack”.
Use Burner for everyday situations – web forms, deliveries, salespeople, and buying things on the web – just like any other phone number. Get all the features you need to stay in touch including calls, texts, and picture messages. Create multiple Burners, keep them as long as you want, and burn them anytime – no hassles and no contracts.

So what if it costs a little
The writers an maintainers of this app have earned it. All of it. I used a burner number for a Craig's list sale. I was pestered with asshats trying to scam me. Ultimately, somebody sent me a check, and asked me to deposit it into my account, and send the surplus to another party. The check was written for 5 times the price of my item. I did not fall off of the turnip truck and hit my head for nothing. I gave it to the credit union with screenshots from the app. The sent it all to the FBI. The idiot kept pestering me. I burned the number. Now he lives in a pile of other stuff that the FBI can't devote resources to investigate. But he doesn't have my real number. All done. Wam Bam...you know the rest!
What a great idea!
Update: getting better and better, these folks are adding features and improvements on a regular basis. Very happy! ^.^
Navigation through the app could use some improvement. The basic concept and execution expands your phone's options by so much, I'll happily use it now and enjoy any future updates when they come! Still working as expected! ^.^
First time using anything like this. It was perfect for us to create a phone number at a large event to share publicly with volunteers and attendees. I ran into a little issue when I forgot to renew and the support/help desk people were very helpful. The $4.99 plan is a deal for unlimited calls and text. We had no issues with receiving or making calls/texts.
