Textfree Ultra gives you a real US phone number so you can text or call anyone, even if they don’t have the app. Textfree uses your data or WiFi connection to keep you in touch with friends and family all over the globe—and with features like group messaging, picture messaging, international calling & texting, and voicemail, it’s the only messaging app you’ll ever need. All for free.

Having your own local phone number means you can call your grandma’s landline, order a pizza, and of course, hit up all your friends, even if they don’t have a smartphone.

You guessed it; texting is totally free and unlimited, even picture messages!

Textfree is perfect for group messaging with all your contacts. You can create groups, leave groups, add participants and let everyone be part of the conversation.

Textfree-to-Textfree calling and any incoming calls are always free. Outbound calling minutes are easy to earn or super cheap to buy. You can also set up your own custom voicemail.

These changes will get more people to buy

You need to allow emojis to be sent as emojis. It comes up as stars on other peoples phones and I'm not the only one who hates it. You also need to fix the fact that if someone else creates a group chat and they aren't on textfree it doesn't work!!!! Also my friend has and IPod and uses and email to text, well textfree won't let me text that friend because it has to be a valid number. You should be able to text to the email. Because my friend uses that email on iMessage through the iPod and now I can't talk to my friend so fix all of these things to get more people to buy your app and actually be satisfied.

I like it.

This app is nice because it lets me have a real number without having to pay a phone bill. I think the only thing I would change would be to have something different for when the notification comes onto the lockscreen. I would like to see the name of the person who texts me without seeing the message. Idk if that makes sense but yeah. I mean, having just a notification with "you have a new text message" is good, but I want to see who texted me. Anyway, I love this app!

Love it

Best texting app I've used. It works really well and there's a lot of cool personalizing features. One thing I wish happened is being able to reply to a text without being in the app. So if a notification pops up that I got a text, I would like to respond right then and there. Other than that, the app is awesome.
