What a waste of time! This app would not send me a security after several attempts. Upon doing some research, I quickly found I am not alone with this issue. They need to get their act together!
WHAT CODE???? 1/5
Can't use app without first submitting some sort of phantom code!!!! Tried several times to get code but ZILCH, ZIP, NADA!!! Perhaps it isn't compatible with iPhones since I read another reviewer with an iPhone had the same issue.
Messenger app 1/5
I despise it. The alert bell rings on my regular text messages and on the new app. So annoying. Getting double texts for lots of my contacts. I fail to see any benefits.
Update, none of my text messages are coming through so obviously there something wrong so I'm just gonna delete the app and I'll try it again later.
There has been a changed in the last 6 months. Either Verizon is not keeping up with Apple updates or something is not compatible. Verizon Message was once as seamless on the iPad as it was on any cellphone; this is no longer the case. Most likely if the oddities continue i will no longer use the Verizon Message on my iPad.
It difficult to pin point the peculiarity, but needless to say I can no longer say the IPad and cellphone are interchangeable for texting.
Good idea but not complete not reliably syncing 1/5
By Paying Customer 123
If this app fully synced "both" directions with the phone and other devices it would be great. But it doesn't sync outgoing messages sent from another device or computer to the native text thread on the phone. And I believe texts within this app are only saved 90 days. Those two items take a potential 5 star app to 1 if used for business, maybe a 2 if only used for fun. Anything less than a full sync and control over when messages are deleted make the app unreliable. If using just for fun, there are many other better messengers that have no tie in to Verizon. Seems like an easy fix to make without forcing users to change the default native texting app on the phone.
Doesn't Work 1/5
I keep getting an error when I type in the code sent to me. Now the app is stuck on a blank white screen.
By ishton arwin
it literally will not send me a code. it's pretty frustrating. i got my friend with the same iphone to download it (she has verizon) and it worked. i have sprint. the description shouldn't say every carrier if it won't work for every carrier.
ONLY FOR VERIZON USERS 1/5
By PHHHOTO IS BETTER
The only way you can use this app is if you are using Verizon if you are with any other carrier it will not work🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻NOT WORTH THE DOWNLOAD
Phone calls from out using a Bluetooth device 1/5
By JJM Jr
Verizon outsources this application to a third-party to enhance to maintain. Horizon seems to help a little control over the fixing of bugs in the version control which should be in place to continually update the app. If they could just get the phone part of the app to work with a Bluetooth device, I would be happy with just that.
I can't download videos that someone sent me using this app.
They never send a security code.
Security Code 1/5
I downloaded the app and entered my number for the security code to be sent but I never received anything. Deleted the app and reloaded it and still nothing.
It's OK 3/5
It's reliability should be improved. The iOS version seems slow and hangs once in a while, but it works.
Can't make it work on my iPhone. 1/5
Unfortunately I can't figure out how to use this app.
Double message 1/5
By double message
I don't know why it's giving me double message. It's kinda of inconvient.
Good, needs some work 3/5
Update: My notifications work now, but I still occasionally miss text messages that I know were sent because I have 2 phones. I get them on my other phone. Not sure why this is happening. Added a star, but am hoping they can fix the missed messages issue.
I don't seem to be getting notifications on my phone, even though they are turned on. I guess this was as if the most recent update. Not sure what's going on. I've rebooted my phone and uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and also ensured notifications are on. Quite frustrating.
Set up no problems. Reliability, not so much. 3/5
I see people reporting problems with set up. I had none. It doesn't synch with the phone. It gets txt independently of the phone. But it can be a couple of hours late. I have not tested sending.
It's a simple txt app. The convenience is what I really like. I just wish it worked faster.
Best Messaging App 5/5
Best Messaging App, Best Cell Phone Carrier.
This a joke? 1/5
How'd this make it past quality control?
Love it 5/5
Keep up the good work for this is an awesome app. Since I have discovered it I can't live without it
Won't send me a code 1/5
By Biker Honey
Don't like the way this app is continually malfunctioning. It tells me I have more than 80 messages when I have one. It used to work fine than over the past few months has one issue after another. I can only hope that all the bugs will be worked out and it will begin functioning properly once again.
Total IM Errors 2/5
Consistently reports total number of IMs, regardless being repeatedly reset.
Security code issues 1/5
By Crimson I
Downloaded app and then it wouldn't send the security code. GG Verizon
Code never sent 1/5
App Stinks 1/5
Now I get mobile twitter feed back from this crappy thing can't turn it off. I don't trust twitter - hacked 3 times and don't want them invading my phone. Fire the developer
Very satisfied 5/5
I downloaded this app to my IPhone 6 work phone so that I could get my messages from my personal, Android based line. This works very well for me. I forward my personal line and so far, I have not missed any calls or text messages that I am aware of. Been using this method for about three weeks.
Maximize productivity 5/5
This app is really helpful for using messaging features across devices. I can respond to SMS messages from my computer or iPad to maximize productivity.
Works Great on Samsung S8+ 5/5
Works great on Samsung S8+ first thing I started using until I found out I had another option.
Won't resend code after I deleted it because was sharing photos with everyone 1/5
I don't want to share nothing personal wanted to be private so I deleted app and reinstalled it and it won't be installed for give me the code
A rotary telephone is a better way to communicate 1/5
I have never rated an app. It either works well or it doesn't. I don't have time to both expressing my opinion, which means close to zero. However it's 1:00 AM, my wife shot me down and I can't sleep. So here is my first review.
This app is by far the most awful development I have ever seen. It looks like it really wants to do some cool stuff and it tries so hard, but it just can't get past the initial intro and keeps buffering. A 3rd grader could have done a better job. Whoever the mindless wonder is that approved the release must have taken their SAT exam with a crayon.
I feel I am owed money for my time. Fix this garbage or take it down. Have a nice night...
Why? Just let me see the videos in my iMessage like I always have before!!
Terrible App 1/5
Fix the security code issue! I never receive the code!
Messages from other iPhone users don't show up 3/5
Please fix it to where I receive my messages from other iPhone users please. I receive my messages just fine from android users but if someone with an iPhone sends me a message I don't receive it. Very annoying.
Notifications are not working 3/5
Doesnt notify me a out incoming texts since last update, i have to go in and check manually for any news ones.
I can now schedule 4/5
It went missing in the current update. I used it almost daily. Messaging is now working. I have no problems with this app as a rule.
Notifications working! 5/5
The app works great again! Very happy!
Previous: The update fixed the notifications for the most part, but they're still patchy at times.
Previous: The app is still broken as it sends notifications for only some but not all received texts. It appears to be an issue with either the server, the app pushing alerts, or its background refresh.
Won't send code 1/5
I've tried several times and it won't send me the code. iPhone 7 T mobile. Also tried to delete the app but it doesn't have the little "x" to delete. How do I remove this from my phone?!
The code doesn't work 1/5
The app sends your number a code to verify your number and after you enter it, it tells you there is an unknown error. If you try to enter it a second time, it tells you the code is incorrect. So basically there is no way to even see if the app works or not because the verification step is broken. Good job, Verizon.
Doesn't Always Work 2/5
I prefer Messenger since I get all my messages and notification sounds there, but on this one, it doesn't seem to hold the notification sound and if it wasn't for my Fitbit which vibrates if I receive a message, I wouldn't know a message came through. I sent a group message to 7 people and it only said 3 messages were sent. I had to send a separate message to the other 4 and it finally went through. It is on my phone and iPad only as a backup. Messenger is number 1 with me!
Notification problem 1/5
Every time they do an update, the Notifications stop working for a while. Happened again after most recent update. Makes the app useless if I need to constantly open it to check for messages. Verizon should be ashamed of having an app like this when the same problem happens over and over again.
Very unhappy 1/5
I sent for the code and installed it is just another app I don't use and do not want but there is no way to remove. I do not recommend if you don't know you love it before you install.
Can't get security code 1/5
I can't get the security code either. Horrible. I also have T-Mobile on an iPhone 7.
It won't let me download the videos received thru this message system 1/5
By What's taptap are u there
This app is not useful. It won't let me download the videos received on this messaging app onto my phone. Can only view the video on this app only and therefore can't save it or share with other people including posting on other social media like instagram of Facebook!
Accessing contacts freezes app 2/5
By Golf chic
With both recent updates app says I need to give access to contacts yet there isn't anyway to do that. So I try to add manually except it pulls up a blank box that freezes the app. Not doing a good job with updates.
It was slow DO MOT GET
Security code sent! 5/5
They fixed the issue with security code!
It's nice! 3/5
I like the customization options!
I don't like that it always says someone is typing...I don't like is that after I have all messages read, a new message will come in and it changes my unread messages to a huge number again (1,041 for example). So not sure about that....I don't like that Glympse is a bit jankie and doesn't quite work right with in message app.
By Of cd
Took awhile to get it to work on my IPad, but once I did, it's fine.
Completely worthless. It didn't help at all.
