Terribly Slow 2/5
Since OS11 it has become very slow. I’ve used it for several years and thought I had premium version. Now I have ads after restoring my phone.
Don't download 1/5
Okay do not download this app. It was good for about 3 to four months but a few days after that I have been getting text messages from this strange number and they were calling me names. They give out your number
Having issues with the hearing .. 2/5
Hey nice app,but I have been having issues for days now not hearing any conversation...
10 out of 5 5/5
I absolutely love this app
By R hawke
Takes a while to download but everything else is ok.
Not worth it!!! 1/5
It's not worth it to get text now!!
Really good for pranks
Don't waste your time 1/5
By Woodstock 1963
So I've been paying for premium so I don't lose my number by not using it, but somehow lost it anyway. I put in a support ticket a week ago and again yesterday and get no replies. Don't waste your time with this one when there are so many others to chose from. I'd understand no support for free but I pay every month and still can't get any. Huge disappointment.
Could be better 4/5
Drains battery power and for some reason
, iPhone 7 gets extremely hot when using the App. Makes CPU run faster or something
Glitchy and a battery drainer 2/5
I loved this app when I first got it, and it's still the only one of its kind. But it's been really sucking for a long time now and getting worse. It's still really slow and glitchy. The ads are still obtrusive and overbearing. Now, I've discovered some other disturbing things. It overheats my phone bad, and it was doing funky things to my battery. Using the app would cause my battery to go from 60-something percent to 1% in the blink of an eye! It seems to have stopped doing that since I updated it last, but I don't know that it won't do it again. That's the other thing: I always update this app, every time it comes up, but it never seems to help. It's still slow and glitchy and continues to heat up my phone. The developers need to fix this because if I ever find a call/text app that'll let me do what this does, I'll switch faster than you can blink an eye.
Too many funky activities that drain battery 1/5
I've been paying close attention to this app the last 2 weeks and noticed its background activities had really used most battery. Even though it is free, ad-based app, this is not justified the way its junky background activities. Must be extremely careful now, or stop using it altogether.
Amzing service nd its free 4/5
Awesome service with text now nd its free, thier phones were what made me make the decision to become a long term customer and its still at least half the price as my previous carrier or any that I could find
Thank you for responding! 5/5
Thanks for responding to my review and I hope you add these features soon!
it would be nice if I could put the ringer on silent rather than just noise or vibrate.
Disappointed Update 2/5
I’m quite surprised with the bugs the new update clearly shows. It often froze; messages flow up and down before it settle down for you to read and lastly the ads are annoying. I regretted updating my previous apps and iOS.
Needs ringtones 4/5
I try to change the ringtone and then I didn’t see a ringtone setting there was only a notifitcaton setting but not the ringtone so could you plz add that in your next update plz and thanks 😄
Going downhill 2/5
By Someone from mars 2100
Used to love this app but with recent upgrades it's getting slower and slower even on latest iPhones. Also you can't copy/paste phone number in the "to" box while sending a text - please fix that one. Thanks.
Phone calls keep saying “call failed” FIX THIS !!!!
This update won’t get notification for incoming calls 1/5
By Maura Carolina
This update won’t get notification for incoming calls 😩
Awesome but... 4/5
I love this app because I’m young so my mom won’t let me get service yet so I go this this app. But I have one suggestion can you connect this app with Siri so I can say, Siri text______
App nearly unresponsive 1/5
By Jonathan Moll
When I downloaded the latest version of this app with the latest iOS on my iPhone, the app would effectively become almost completely unresponsive. It has become useless for me. I have to keep deleting and re-adding it for it to work at all. I have found it to be a disaster.
Voicemail messages are silent or don't load and I'm not being notified when someone calls it only shows up as a missed call.
not working!! Internet error message constant 1/5
By Ju tight
I can't even sign up for it it's not letting me make an account ! I thought this app was good but it's giving me a internet connection error message but all my other apps are working I deleted the app closed the phone and redownloqded the app still nothing !
It’s not showing me my character count!!! And when I send long text messages it comes out of order!
Starting to dislike 2/5
Since the new update I have had way more problems. My calls drop after 1 min when I call people and it breaks up really bad unless they call me. The app lags really bad when I am texting and sometimes my pictures send as broken links and I have to resend the pic. I don’t see any messages anymore until I actually open the app and refresh it myself. The only notification I get is when people call me.
By Helpers on the way
Very Slow 1/5
This app is extremely slow and Doesn’t work properly. If you try to copy and paste a number onto the To: to Send a text message it doesn’t work. Can someone please fix this app!👎 I want to add some more staff. When someone calls they can NOT heard me whether I use WiFi or LTE.
Too many ads
Calling on Iphone doesn’t work 1/5
So i have an iphone and an android. The app works fine on the android, calls and text messages all work fine. But on the iphone only text messaging works, the calling doesn’t work, it only shows missed calls. That bad
Annoying random calls 3/5
Cool app but annoying random calls is a problem fix it..
By Sometimes Gud sometimes junk
This app is becoming something else, after I updated this app, nothing seems to work properly anymore exept for texting only, calls no longer going through, in fact I can't make anymore calls, I will advice nobody updates his or her textnow, because that will be the end of it...
Ad & ad & ad & ad 1/5
This used to be a good app, now it is as junk as textfree app.
after update, laggy. keyboard cant keep up
still laggy!!! wack!!
Love it 5/5
Text messages don't show up correctly 1/5
This app used to be pretty good but lately the text messages I receive are really misformatted and get progressively worse. Sometimes spaces are reformatted as random symbols. Other times, words as short as "still" are broken up into fragments over multiple lines. Further, sometimes longer texts get broken up but are received completely out of order. This makes communication via this app virtually impossible to understand sometimes - very disappointed.
Absolutely terrible 1/5
By Sara Delano
I don't even want to have to give this app one star. Phone calls hardly ever even work, and when they do, they're choppy and you can hardly hear the person on the other end. When typing, it lags horribly and takes literally 5 minutes to type "hey what's up?". The worst experience I've had with a texting app.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS 1/5
This is one of the WORST texting apps ever and it always messes up!! More than half the time, my messages don’t send and my incoming messages don’t get to me. I hate this app! 0 STARS. Get “FreeTone” instead. Anything is better than this garbage.
I had this app for many years. It worked great. Until one day they sent me a notification that told me my phone number was reassigned. I had many people with my contact and now it is some other persons contact. Thanks a lot text now. 😶
Need to get the basics to work 2/5
By C Dearborne
I used to be a big fan of this app. I even paid for the extra features but I'm annoyed that basic sending and receiving texts are now spotty. Sometimes I think a message went through and later find out that it hasn't. It also takes too long to refresh and see new messages. If the solution is to reinstall the app again then that's unacceptable.
I can't even get it to open 1/5
By Fashion fairy, makeup princess
I used to use TextNow everyday with no problems and now, ever since the latest update, it crashes every time I open it.
Very slow and drains battery 3/5
Never have I ever seen an app drain battery like this one does. The entire phone heats up after just a couple minutes of use and everything runs really slowly even when switching to another app for a couple minutes until it finishes doing whatever has it apparently maxing the CPU the whole time since it was launched.
Totally loved this app......at first 1/5
By Bessie higgenbottom
Was great in just about every way for me, but after a while, even with 100mb/s would drop calls, three four times during a call. Having to keep calling someone back again and again is so frustrating. The other thing which never happen before but has started happening, adds would run during my phone call, most of the time when that would happen the call would drop, other times when the call survived the add was 50% louder than the conversation I was trying to have, complete and total frustration. Yeah, it's free and at first it was tolerable but since I've started with this app, it has become more frustrating per every event that has happened, I've just about pulled out hair having to deal with dropped calls, commercial ads during a call, or a call getting dropped so a commercial/ad could play. Ads just play out of the clear blue. I was watching tv, not even using this app, and an ad started playing, what's up with that? Thank you but no thank you.
I love the app and it lets me get in touch with my friends, but I think you should add face calls and have less adds.
You need to add videos 4/5
By GMZ dancer
It's a good app but I would love to be able to send my friends and family videos
International Text Messages 5/5
By King Obaro
It would be so lovely if textnow can start sending international text messages which will be charged from our textnow credits
Phone gets really hot 2/5
Lol why can you see others reviews
It was good at first. 1/5
Every time I respond to a message now, it's difficult. Very glitchy when typing message.
Good app 4/5
By larry the latty
I really like the app and I like the free calling but there is one thing you could change about it and that is that you cannot send videos and when will the video message be done
Group chat 4/5
I've been using this for a couple years now and I love this app but I would love it even more if it would support group chats
