1.5 stars updated review


I planned to write here in a week but its been something like a month. After a period of time suddenly the app stops notifying when messages come in. Also the app progressively got less consistent with message delivery as time has passed.

Day 1 review:
"I deleted this before because it was to glitchy I decided to give the app another try today, so far so good. There have been two crashes already today but Nice layout everything has been sent and received quickly, no other glitches or obtrusive adds, service is actually free :)) all good so far. Lost half a star cuz two crashes in less than a day and you lost one full star because the "do not disturb" setting on my iphone does not impact your app. Not sure if that last one is within the devs power but i feel like it aught to be, perhaps i just didnt see a do not disturb within the app or have some other setting arri, i will update review in a week or two after i have used it more."

Hello,thank you for your feedback & review. Please contact us,so we can help you resolve these issues.

It’s all right


Note: I am using this app on an iPod.

There are pros and cons.

Pros: it’s free. You can text or call anyone on any phone without the other person having to use the same app or sign up for something. And regardless of what type of phone the person has. The call feature works well. I have made and received phone calls with no issues. Advertisements are unobtrusive and do not interrupt use.

Cons: The texting feature is riddled with bugs. It does not connect well with contacts list on my device. So I often can’t see who I’ve been texting with. Despite my volume being on and setting for notifications being on, it does not audibly notify me when I get texts. It does send a visual notification, but I only see it, obviously, if I’m already looking at my device. It may or may not save text history. That’s very spotty. Sometimes it saves only one half the conversation. Sometimes none. Sometimes only the last text sent or received. Those are the issues I can think of off the top of my head.

Can’t comment upon video chat or group chat. Haven’t used that. Also, not sure if it’s available with this app.

Not 100% terrible.. but close..


I’ve tried very seriously to use Talkatone as a phone service replacement for 6 months... DON’T DO THAT! Super extremely astonishingly unbelievably slow to load.. it literally takes a full minute to boot up on iPhone 6. No notifications.. missed calls.. missed texts. Riddled with obnoxious adverts. UGLY AS ALL SIN. Glitchy, will often get stuck in a certain orientation while the keyboard gets flipped in the other orientation, necessitating a restart. Terrible connection quality through public WiFi.

Get this, if you want to send a text longer then around 500 characters TOO BAD. It’ll send the first part, chop off the rest and delete it from existence. GARBAGE.

I can't tell you how many times I've booted up this app to find that someone tried to get a hold of me the day before and the app just plain didn't let me know!!! Well there goes that job! Guess I’ll have to explain to that girl why I didn’t answer her text for two days! It’s totally unreliable!!!

Ugly. Very ugly. Did I mention it’s ugly? Because it is ugly.

It’s totally covered in ads everywhere that slow it down and you accidentally hit and they charge you the predatory 1.99$ A MONTH to get rid of them.

If I could give it ZERO stars I would.

Fix your crappy app!
