Customer Reviews

Updated - only one setting actually works

I wrote a review a few weeks ago about how the schedule texts and auto reply were great additional features. Well, I'm not sure what happened, but only the schedule texts works. I'm not getting any notification of new texts, no auto replies are going through even though it says auto reply is on. It actually takes about 3 tries to turn it on, but then it still doesn't do anything. It won't let me turn on the emergency calling. I turn it on and the next time I open the app, it's off again. I'm not sure what's going on with the app but since no new messages are coming through, it's pretty useless unless I want to schedule a text message. Refreshing the app does nothing. So if someone knows what's going on, please let me know. Otherwise, if I find a better scheduling text app, then I can get rid of this one until all the features it says it has actually work. Why have a texting app if you get absolutely no text replies???

Recent Glitches

This app is great in the variety of features and services it provides. However, it appears after recent updates, there have been a number of inconsistencies. For example, contact names (which are correct on my iPhone) have appeared in my Verizon contacts via this app under something completely different. Courtney became K in my contacts. It took several days before I noticed. Before I could edit the contact and change it myself, the Verizon contacts list performed autocorrect I suppose. It was baffling.

App is still useless!

For almost 2 months now this app has not worked after an update from Verizon or Apple. Before that it worked flawlessly, now it freezes up after a minute from opening and then just closes itself. Messages still come in as the icon keeps track but I can't open any of them or do anything in the app because of above issues. Phone is perfect and I've uninstalled and reinstalled twice to no improvements. How long is this going to continue?

Even after new iPhone 10.3 update , still doesn't work. Freezes and shuts down. Already reinstalled 3 times today and same thing. What a shame. Loved the old app when it worked great.
