What's New in Version 2.4.5
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 reason..it 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!
A Sufficient App. 5/5
TL;DR: All around, Message+ does what its supposed to do: send and receive messages, sync texts, maybe place a phone call. 5/5
I was hesitant to download b/c of the numerous reviews that noted issues concerning syncing across different devices/platforms. As of 8/3 -- for me, at least -- such a problem appears to not be an issue. I use Message+ on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and now this iPad Pro 10.5 (which I am using, atm, to write this review), and both devices are syncing wonderfully. One can even make phone calls using this app., but I have yet to test this out. I have no complaints.
Good idea but not complete not reliably syncing
If this app fully synced "both" directions with the phone and other devices it would be great. But it doesn't sync outgoing messages sent from another device or computer to the native text thread on the phone. And I believe texts within this app are only saved 90 days. Those two items take a potential 5 star app to 1 if used for business, maybe a 2 if only used for fun. Anything less than a full sync and control over when messages are deleted make the app unreliable. If using just for fun, there are many other better messengers that have no tie in to Verizon. Seems like an easy fix to make without forcing users to change the default native texting app on the phone.
