Ratings and Reviews
I have an iPod and got his app so I could text friends that don’t have an iPhone. This app works okay, but I cannot send videos which is annoying and sometimes the pictures take forever to send. I have gotten texts and calls from people I have no idea who are. A couple of the texts have been disturbing. I always block the number without replying back, but it is still annoying. Also a few months after I get a picture it will not load anymore which is annoying if I want to go back and look at them later. I have seen another free texting app which puts all pictures, etc sent to a certain number in one place much like iMessage and then you can go back and delete certain ones. I would like to see that feature on this app. Loading earlier texts and deleting individual texts are very very clunky. To delete a text you tap and hold the text and a bubble will pop up that says delete, but if you hold the text to long the bubble will disappear as soon as you lift you finger and even if you don’t hold it to long you have about a second to press delete before it goes away. The same goes for pasting text into a message. Please make this app better.
Hi there, thanks for your continued feedback. We recently made a change to your messaging history, including photo history. All messages should be saved to your account unless you chose to manually deleted them. This means that you should be able to see those old photos without a problem!
I like u but idk idk
I just updated (Apr29) so hopefully a few bugs have been cleared. EDIT. NO. The problems still persist. I’m on an iPhone SE. 11.3.1. I often have problems with incoming phone calls going straight to missed phone call. (I figured out a possible loophole to get it to alert me by adding the number to my contacts). I have problems with the app getting stuck in landscape mode when I need it to switch to portrait (otherwise I can’t press the numbers during the phone call and I fear touching my home button will cause it to hang up). I have had ads come on during a phone call causing the call to disconnect. This seems to happen when the phone is stuck in landscape mode and open. The landscape glitch causes the phone to stay open. I have been using this app for almost 2 years. These problems have only started to occur for me in the last few months.
Hi there, thanks for providing your feedback. We definitely would like to do some testing with you to get to the bottom of these issues you've described. Since it seems like you are experiencing a few different bugs it's likely not all being caused by the same thing so we'd like to speak to you directly to address these problems. Please email email@example.com for troubleshooting assistance!
Great.......but a few problems
I got this app in fifth grade because I wanted to text my friends without having the actual message app. It was great, until I was invited to a group chat. So when my friend invited me to one, I got all the texts from there private account. If I were to text back, it would go to the private account too. Another problem is sending pictures and videos. You can’t at all send videos. When you are trying to send a picture, it takes forever. I was sending a lot of pictures to one of my friends and it took around five minutes to complete it. The calling is nice, but the calls don’t come in all the time for me. Also I will get calls from random people, when I call them back they said that they have never called me before.
Hi, thanks for your feedback. We are excited to be launching a new group chat functionality very soon which will allow you to participate in group chats the same way you would with a traditional carrier. Video messaging is also in the works so we're excited to make that available for you and all other TextNow users!
