Annoying to me that if someone sends me a video it makes me download the app In order for me to view it and for that reason I'm deleting the app as soon as I save the video. If your gonna force me to download your app I will 100% not keep the app. That's a cheap ploy to get downloads and if you need to do that then your a scummy company!
No code 1/5
Try to load two videos a friend sent but the entry security code Never sends I have a different carrier from Verizon so I don’t know if that’s why it doesn’t work but she has Verizon and I have AT&T but needs to be fixed
Lock screen display 3/5
the contact name isn’t showing up when I receive a message. Only the number. Anyone know how to fix this?
Code that is sent never works.
Pointless app 1/5
You can send and receive videos longer than a minute but once you receive it on the app, after going through they're stupid setup and downloading the app, you can't even save these videos?? So these videos from my husbands phone of our newborn that he wants to send to me to have on my phone I can't even save? I can only view. Completely ridiculous! That alone makes me glad to still have an iphone so I don't have to use this stupid app for sending my own videos.
Not delivering texts 1/5
By Miss MC 963
Some text messages are not being delivered from iPad and random synching with the Verizon text app on my phone.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By FIRST TAKE SUPPORTER

Super glitchy 1/5
Says I have new messages but they aren’t there. This happens constantly. Can’t download the media people send to you either like pictures or videos.
By Draining the Swamp
I wanted a way to send an automated reply to texts when not available. This feature did not work for me.
Won’t Send Verification Code 1/5
That’s it. I can’t use it because it won’t send me a code.
Can’t receive security code 1/5
I never received a confirmation code. On Twitter with sprint and Verizon support. Both cannot help me!
Should be redesigned 3/5
Very old fashioned but a very good idea wish it’s updated nicely and make an Apple Watch app
Fix glitches so I can actually use the app! 1/5
Zero stars isn’t available! I can’t even get started with the app because when I enter the security code it says “unknown error” followed by “enter a valid security code” this problem has been occurring for weeks! Please fix it so I can use this to communicate with my friends that have the app! Fix it and I’ll change my review and rating.
Absolutely useless app 1/5
The only reason I downloaded the app is that a Verizon subscriber sent me a video from their phone and that was the only way to view it. I’m able to share photos and videos with anyone regardless of whether they have an iPhone or not except for Verizon users. At first I thought no big deal. I’ll just use the app to download the video to my phone, then save it to the camera roll so it can be shared with others. Well, that’s not the case. The useless app doesn’t have a way of doing that or ability to share the media so the only thing I can do is watch the video on my phone. 0 stars would be the correct rating. Too bad such option is not available.
I didn't want your app 1/5
I still don't. I only wanted to watch a Verizon-sent video on my Verizon phone. I can watch everyone else's video from other providers with mount downloading a new app. Go away and leave me alone
Great App, Small Problems 4/5
By Messages+ App
I've been using the this app now for about 6 years and have enjoyed it very much. I use an android smart phone, an iPad and a Windows laptop PC regularly and my interest in this app was to be able to text across all my platforms and have the texts stay in sync. To this end the app performed very well and I use it on my iPad in preference to the Apple messaging app.
The app does well in synchronizing texts on all my platforms but there are times when a message I send from my phone does not appear on the messaging app. This mostly occurs when my iPad or laptop is not connected to wifi and it happens more often with my iPad. However, any text I send from my iPad or my laptop always appears on my phone which is the most important aspect for me.
One feature I like about the app is that I can add or update a contact from a text I received. This is a real time saver and helps me keep my address book current. I do notice, however, an occasional problem with updating my contacts on my phone. I will update my contacts and it appears to work, but when I shut down the app and then start it up again the contact update disappears. This has only happened on my phone and, so far, not on my iPad or laptop.
One other issue I had with the app was that when I sent a text using my laptop, iPhone recipients had trouble getting the text. They could see the message coming in on the notification banner but when they went to their messaging app they did not see the text. Also, when the iPhone user sent me a text the punctuation marks in the text would be a different font. This hasn't happened with any android device, Windows device or iPad. I sent a comment to the app tech support and am waiting to see if they fix the problem.
Overall I am please with the app and use it all the time. I certainly recommend it to anyone who has multiple platforms from which they send and receive texts. I gave it 4 stars mainly because of the problems with texting with iPhone platforms.
By We're right!
The app is pretty rudimentary and it’s inability to sync an entire Communication across multiple devices is pretty irritating. iMessage has to be off or it really jacks with the other devices. It also is a bit of a pain to search for people.
Won’t work 1/5
Does not send the code to my phone so can use my app. It just keeps asking Permission to acces my contacts mic and so on. Doesn’t do anything else.
Unable to activate 1/5
By JUZZME NVG
Never gets the text verification code to activate the app. 😤😡
Inconvenient. Must use? Not OK. 1/5
Must download to view a video? Really? I thought about switching to Verizon. After this, NO. Why would I put other people through this?
Not like what it used to be 2/5
I used this app alot on my Samsung S6 and I loved it. I was excited to find it in the app store when I switched to an iPhone 7 plus because let's face it, I hate not being able to customize the looks on the iMessage. Well I don't get a lot of texts, recipients get about 20 % of texts I send them. And yes I followed all the directions. I'm not sure if there's a computing fight or what but I'm super disappointed.
Do I need This? 1/5
Trying to access friend’s video. App asks for all kinds of access to my device, then access code fails. Frustrating.
iPhone on AT&T 1/5
Suppose to work across service providers. Doesn’t. Can not even get a security code to be sent to me from Verizon. Bad product, bad concept, bad design and POOR execution from a company who should have plenty of money to spend on R&D.
Awful, just Awful 1/5
By Bird nerd 1
I don't even know how to use it the code expires in 15 minutes and you have no time. Awful, just Awful
Will not send verification code 1/5
Can't even use the app because it will never send the verification code to my phone during set-up.
Update killed access 2/5
Once the last update posted to fix bugs it created some that were not there before.
Video - View in Person 1/5
3 weeks after a video was sent, I will finally be able to watch it because the person who sent it to me is coming to visit me. I’ll be able to watch it on their phone.
Not receiving security code 1/5
It’s not working on my phone I’m a Metro Pcs customer it used to work on my other number can someone help
I’d rate zero stars if I could. Have tried multiple times on two different devices to get a security code sent so I can use this app. No code is ever sent. That’s bad enough, but you CANNOT get support. Even just using the community forum requires registration and your email and may or may not (I’m betting not) provide the info needed. There is no way to simply email support with a simple query.
Wonky, possessive, forgetful 2/5
Blinking blocks in the activity list, slow to load and replicate over wifi. I despise Verizon for making this the sole supported app for wifi connectivity, there's far too many weak signal areas in their network to hold us paying customers hostage. Forgetful... way too many messages will be delivered to phone that don't appear on iPad or online messaging history. This isn't rocket science, folks
Can’t use it. 1/5
I can’t even try this app since it won’t send me the security code. I’ve tried it 3 times and even redownloaded it. Nothing.
This app runs super slow. It can barely load any of my messages. I have to restart the app just to get it to load recent messages.
Proprietary app for basic functions? 1/5
By Mike Hoopes
Typical Verizon. They’ve been doing this since the flip phone era. I remember helping people export their contacts from their Verizon phones, and having to PAY Verizon for the privilege. This wasn’t necessary with any other carrier.
So I had to install this app on my AT&T phone just to view a video sent to me from a Verizon phone, and it fails to send me the activation code for the app.
This app is terrible, can't even get through on boarding. I enter my phone number and nothing happens! I never get a code texted to me to complete sign up. It's completely useless!
Error Message on Security Code 1/5
Can’t even get in the app. iPhone 6 Plus
Buy a pigeon 1/5
By shop anyone but verizon
Worst experience with an app ever. Lots of problem with no relevant fixes. By a pigeon and send messages that way... it will be better
By Purdy greatttt
won’t send me a security code. ive tried many times. very angry with this.
Holds MMS messages hostage! 1/5
Verizon forced me to download this app in order to view certain messages that contained media over a certain size from non-iOS users. I think that’s absolutely outrageous. I shouldn’t have to use your special messenging platform to view a picture. The interface for this is also very cumbersome and it’s difficult, especially for sharing videos, to save videos to your device after they’ve been sent. I’m so annoyed and am actively searching for a solution to this hostage situation of an app.
After months of “Technical” Support from Verizon, it appears Verizon will not allow SMS messages to be sent via WiFi. So, if you are in a poor coverage area (or roaming on 1x) and the sender & recipient do not use iMessage this is the only way to text without the dreaded “Red !”
Therefore, if you have an iPhone and live or travel in a non-LTE area this is the only way to consistently send and receive messages from the Android world.
So much for Verizon’s misleading advertising tooting their own horn in rural areas. Good Job Verizon - Good Job!
Didn’t Work 1/5
It says it will send you a code to get started....after trying 10 times, it never sent a code. Seems useless if it won’t do what it says it will do.
Concept & Idea is good, terribly developed 1/5
By Shy to be a BA fan
The idea is very good, the app is slow and unreliable- it’s an important app to me - but Verizon doesn’t seem to invest much into it! It’s very slow, freezes and full of bugs
By Stephanie Russ
Can anyone help me out when I get a notification it only shows the persons phone number on the temporary notification. It’s driving me crazy. Why won’t it show the name along with the message?!
Security Code 1/5
WONT send me a security code to finish setting up account. Very FRUSTRATED. Have uninstalled and installed app several times trying to fix this problem and nothing is working!!!
Not perfect but all I have 3/5
I switched to an Android phone (not liking the high $ tag of the X) but still have my iPads and my Macs. Honestly, the only thing I miss is the cross platform text forwarding from my phone that enabled me to receive non-iMessage texts across all devices. Message+ fills the void. It’s not perfect and I’ve already missed a message less than 24 hours after initially installing but it sure beats nothing.
can't save media to your phone 1/5
By Nick Supe
my dad tried to send me a video from his android (i have iphone) and it told me to download this app. the app only lets you view the video. it doesn't allow you to download anything.... waste of time
Should really work on the app before putting it out. 1/5
By Ria T19
I can’t even get passed validating the code. I’ve constantly try and nothing happens and than I’m staring at a blank space and I’ve waited hours and still didn’t do anything.
Wish I could give zero stars or negative 1/5
I get the app, install the app, give my number for a code that never comes ... EVER!
Not a fan at all 1/5
Verizon customer here looking for a good alternative texting app for my android. Brand new phone and brand new to this app and I can't help but notice extreme delays in delivering my texts along with shuffling of texts.
Won’t upload video to send 1/5
Just downloaded this app so I can send a SHORT video to a friend with this app. IT WON’T attach and send. It just keeps showing that it’s loading over and over. DOESN’T WORK!!!!
