App Freezes & Crashes

robertleeblairjr

This app has went downhill in quality from the developer choosing to use particular ads and an over abundance of ads, along with, they're refresh rates for the ads. The app will consistently freeze or crash when attempting to log out or if it's been running in the background for a long time. I've reinstalled this app 3 times on the most recent version of iOS but this problem has been present in different versions of iOS and app updates. Every so often an update will seem to function correctly for a short period of time. The developer's primary concern is ad revenue over producing a quality product. Update: New bug; no surprise. The app forces a new account creation with your FaceBook login. It does not whenever you login with your ID. Awesome! Looking forward to your next newly devised glitch. Along with this previous bug, problems with the developers choice of ad delivery causing freezes of the app; now the app will not open contacts when accessed from the apps menu for calls & texts. So to recap; app freezes with particular ads delivered but not all, Facebook login fails, & accessing contacts have failed. I’ve tested this on three different iOS devices. Like other users have stated; initially enjoyed the app but the quality of this app and service has plummeted.

Frustrated

My Collages

I’ve been using this app for texting, calling, sending pics but it’s real frustrating though. While talking to someone it cut in & out & ad pops up while in the middle of conversations & leaving messages. Soooo many ad pop ups! Why though? When I can clearly see the ads on the bottom, then when I press on the closed “x” it sends me to the internet instead of closing. It hangs up during conversations & an ad pops up so the ads are causing the hang ups. I’m being patient with it but now it’s getting worst because when I call a business or my credit card it won’t recognize the extensions or card numbers that I’m trying to put in. I believe you guys can do better then this. Because it’s really starting to be a frustration instead of easy to use. I would love to continue using it but there’s some major changes that needs to be done, like these non stop back to back ad pop ups when we can clearly see all the ads on the bottom. I can even deal with them popping up after a call but come on why during calls though? & it needs to be able to let you type extensions & card numbers without typing some & not letting you type all. Please fix this! Because it would be an awesome app to have as a secondary or even a main line.

Great to have a second number, but SOOOO glitchy

ilikewinter

I have to chalk it up to all the ads. Remember those websites back in the day that insisted on running flash ads all along their sidebar and banner ads on the top and bottom? That's this app. There are two or three ads running simultaneously, many are not static, and they load new ones every so often. Whenever a new one loads or an animated ad plays (whether gif like or other) the texting part of this app becomes nearly unusable. More often than not, I have to retype words because it messes with the keyboard input speed. It gets rapidly worse during the session of use until I have to close and reopen. And outbound calls are impossible-I've given up.

I would purchase the app to get rid of the ads, but have no confidence that the quality would improve-the free version is *that* bad.

I would give it a one-star for usability, however, I am grateful to have that second number as a dual citizen in a country where Google Voice is unavailable (otherwise, I'd get a second number there). At least people can call in with it-but making calls? No. And texting? A flip phone keyboard would be faster than trying to use this app.
