What's New in Version 3.9.2
This update brings the already near-perfect free calling and texting app closer to perfection:
- You can now log in to Talkatone using your Facebook account to instantly start texting and calling!
- It now takes fewer taps to start texting with a contact!
I like this app, it gets the job done and does what I need it to do. That's all that matters. I've never experienced dropped calls, all my texts come through, and send. (I mostly text). The reviewer below me, maybe you should read the terms of services of this product before jumping into conclusions. Nothing said "unlimited" on the app so I came in knowing I had to pay some sort of fee - since nothing in this world is "free" Overall good app but I wish the user had more control over over the app such as custom ringtones, able to send videos, and pics to not only just to Talkatone users.
Turns iPad into a Phone. ☎️📱 Was good, not now. 💢
💢 Update: App was ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 5-stars. Now ☆ one star. Unstable, unreliable, nearly unusable. Crashes 75% of the time. Completes a call 25% of the time. I am on solid wifi and internet connections. iPad Air. Latest iOS.
I WAS using Google Voice with the old Talkatone on iPad (wifi and cellular data) for over two years, since 2012. Didn't need all of the fancy features of Talkatone, just wanted a simple way to make calls through Google voice and receive calls on my iPad, using wifi or cellular data plan. It worked great. 98% reliable with Google Voice. Glad to pay $20 per year for this.
The new Talkatone was very tricky to setup, seemed to lock me out for awhile, but then it seemed to work okay with a new Talkatone number. Frustrating to setup, but eventually got it working. Viable alternative to Google HANGOUTS, to turn iPad into a voip Phone using Google Voice.
However, the new TALKATONE app is highly unstable and unreliable. Look elsewhere until they get this fixed. NOT ready for prime time. Please fix the instabilities. I NOW use Google HANGOUTS mainly. Talkatone is just for occasional use, spare number.
Turns iPad into a Phone. ☎️📱 Was good, degraded now. 💢
Best phone app I've used overall.
Reliable services. Decent reception. Easy to use and ads aren't obnoxiously in your face/invasive. Definitely one of the better phone apps available. HUGE plus that calls and texts within the USA are free. No need to earn points by completing meaningless tasks. Only thing that could be better is the design. Design could be cleaner but is not enough to justify taking away a point on the rating.
