What's New in Version 2.7.0
• Fix a contact issue that may freeze the app
• More ways to earn credits
This is the best free texting app on the app store that I've used so far, but its ability to send videos is rather unstable. This app struggles to send videos that even iMessage can send without a problem.
Also, many of the free credit offers redirect you to malicious domains or scams before taking you to the app or survey you wish to download or fill out. In fact, many of the surveys are scams in the first place and most of them require a lot of personal information. Previous versions of the app allowed users to download selected apps for a decent amount of credits, but that isn't the case anymore.
My final issue with the app has to do with how the app sometimes logs me out after I close it, resulting in all of my conversations being deleted. Could this have to do with iOS 8.1.3 compatibility issues?
Nice for free, has glitches
I use this app mainly to text from my iPod touch (I have an older flip phone w/out keyboard). I tried to send a picture along w/ voice message and the photo vanished - not cool. It's easy to connect your contacts, create a personal outgoing message and other settings. Plus it will store incoming and outgoing messages / calls. You can earn or buy credits to make international calls. So for a free phone # (iFaux) I & free text it's pretty nice. Yes, there are ads always present - but not so intrusive or too disruptive. Free unlimited national phone calls & text (w/Wi-Fi) from an iPod is actually pretty sweet.
1000 and 1 bug
Terrible bugs with notifications. I open the app and see 25 missed calls even though phone was with me and NO notifications on the main screen. Also I don't understand 15$ keep the number thing. But I paid... Why can't I pay to get rid off this terrible ads ? Another issue I experience caller id. In the main list of texts/calls I don't see the name. Only when I open the conversation phone number appears to be saved as something. Also there is no way to save a new number to iphone contacts. Only manually. That's too many bugs.........
