Needs push notification
U.S. user here, been using this app for years. I have a local number in UK so my mates there can call and text me easy. Making calls is easy, but the text interface is a bit clunky. Furthermore you can’t receive texts unless you forward the text for your incoming number to your phone — which means it costs your credit to receive texts as well as send them. Would be nicer if they’d at least use the iPhone’s push notification to advise you whenever you get an incoming text. Would also be nice if I could define which of my local incoming numbers are used on outgoing texts, like I can from the web interface.
Very Disappointing, I'm done.
Been a customer since late 2012 and I gave up during 2014 but decided to try their services again. Ever since 2013 the app went downhill. The audio during calls are delayed by 4-5 seconds. Voice echoes very often during calls. Calls go mute or get dropped too. I have excellent networking hardware, ISP and Cellular network. I am just disappointed at how they price the rates to attract customers but fail to deliver the service. You really do get what you pay for. I will stick to Skype. Will pay more but at least I will get what I pay for. Shame on you guys for these issues that occur repeatedly. This used to be a decent calling service in 2012. Years have passed and the UI still falls behind.
Good App, but needs some more features!
I have been using Localphone for almost 15 months and I really love the app, rates and services. The only concern I have with this app is, If i want to add credit, i need to login to my computer to do that. Also, If I am in a Subscription plan, i dont see any option to check the minutes left for this month. Also, why don't you have a 2000 minutes plan?
The App interface also looks little old and can be improvized more for better experieince with the above added features.
Overall I recommend this app to everyone! Good service and rates.
