Ratings and Reviews
Breaks after every update, here again reinstalling AD laden APP.
It was great APP in 2009. It’s growth has caused me and a lot of people a lot of pain. Forget Tech Support, it all comes down to buying a new phone and computer and reinstalling the APP after every update. Support is great about finding ways to waste your time. Once they ask for screen shots, they are done with you….crickets.
I prefered the way you could watch videos to earn minutes or simply buy them. Now, the ADS take over. Some even blast full volume while the Close button remains unresponsive until most of the ad has played.
I am reinstalling after the last update, where the APP is doing a familiar thing. Opens, closes, opens, closes, without end. The phone is a bit better, it only opens and crashes a usual 3 times before remaing open.
I am looking for another APP, but, I have had the same number for 10 years now, and would like the company to just fix the thing already.
Needs Find feature for text - Latest version Crashes GPU of MacBookPro

This program desperately needs a Find feature in the Edit menu for searching the text of a conversation.
It used to lock up on ads but they seem to have solved that. Old issue: Normally this application puts up ads in the lower left corner. That's fine. I can look at them and the app still functions. Once in a while it puts up a modal dialog box and locks you into an ad which you can't get out of except by force quitting TextNow. For this reason I give it only one star. The app is a little kluggy. It needs refinement. For that I should deduct one more star.
There are no instructions for opening an account. They just start the process and before I even had a phone number, my account was blocked for violating their terms agreement. HUH? They won’t tell you what you did, they just say to read the agreement - which is 2000 words or so - and you can guess what you did wrong. Very frustrating experience. How can you violate any terms when you haven’t even used it? I would look elsewhere - just not worth the hassle.
