Customer Reviews

Unreliable and irritating

While heywire is good for saving money on a texting plan, it also seems to be very unreliable. Oftentimes long messages that are sent to me appear in bits and pieces several hours later. Messages I send are sometimes not received and I am unable to send or receive pictures. In addition to that the ads are probably the most annoying thing ever. It seems bent on having me pay to remove the ads. Every time I tap to start writing a message an ad pops up and I end up tapping on that instead. Then I'm forced to close and reopen the app. Occasionally heywire won't load either. If I want to see a message a friend sent me, sometimes the app won't open unless I open and reopen it several times. One thing that's kind of cute is the different themes:) that's nice because orange is kind of ugly as a background. But overall the app is unreliable, prone to crashes and has many annoying ads. Have decided to switch to pinger.

Not bad at all!

Helped me though a rough time when my phone was cut off. Helped me stay in touch with family that didn't have iMessage. Highly recommend! It's a little buggy from time to time, but for what this app does I didn't mind restarting the app every so often.

Great App

I can't get a cellular signal where I live so Heywire helps me to be able to keep in touch with family. Whether I'm in town or at home, they only have so send the IM to my Heywire account and I can get it. I have used this app for several years and am very pleased.
