Ratings and Reviews
Glitchy and ads overwhelm the experience
TextNow is a great idea and provides a great service essentially - that you can have a free phone number and call North America from anywhere in the world -however the user experience is pretty bad. The app is slow, extremely glitchy, and the ads are meant to overwhelm your experience. The ad situation has gotten substantially worse in recent months. The standard bad ad experience on the app is that the ads pop up on the home screen constantly and they are hard to close. But recently I had the experience that video ads start playing through my calls and as the call time progresses the interval between the time the video ad plays gets shorter and shorter. So what happens is you're talking to someone and then an extremely loud ad (way above the call audio volume) starts playing over your call. You can shut it down but it will just start back up again a few moments later. Really unbearable. I am keeping the app because it's in its development stages and I'm hoping it will go in a different direction when it receives more funding. As a traveler it's a great tool for me, just wish it wasn't such a harrowing tool to use.
This app is by far one of the best app out there, If you a phone or device that doesn’t have a plan or any minutes left then download this app and it becomes your service as long as you have internet connection. And the best part is it’s free as long as you have internet service you can use the app as a phone on any device. You also can purchase a data plan with them for when your our and about and can’t connect to WiFi and the service is great theres no roaming or blackout areas or spots that you don’t have service.
Fun and great way to text
I have an iPod because my parents won’t buy me a phone so when all of my friends got phones I wanted a way to text them , I tried many apps but they all cost money to text people so I tried this app. It doesn’t involve you to have to buy anything unless you want to and I can text my friends when ever you want the only problem I have with the app is you have to have wifi for it but it not the end of the world , overall this is such a good app thank you creators of this app ( idk who you are but thx) 🙂😃
