Never again 1/5
Stupid terms can’t use a VPN or they will ban your account.. it’s an opinion of mine that the terms have no logic. So therefore I said stupid terms. If you would Make this available worldwide I would not have to use a VPN
The only thin I don't like is it hangs up on people a lot 😑 2/5
By Shawty b 😵
App needs upgrade real bad 🤷🏽♀️
Phone number changed 1/5
This app forced me to change my number, despite my account being Premium. I am paying monthly and phone number should be locked.
Why did you changed my phone number???
Edit: I am a paying subscriber. I have Apple receipts here.
Edit: I emailed to the email you gave. Pls check it for me. It is very frustrating!
Edit: I emailed the given email address, no one’s responding since yesterday. FYI, I have an active subscription. I am paying for this!!!! You don’t even have a direct support for paying customers. This is crazy.
Great App! 5/5
By Alex wolf hessssss
This is a great app for a second phone number, and yes, you have unlimited texts for free! This app is great for prancing your friends. The only thing I don’t like about the app is that you have to pay some money or wait 3-4 weeks to change your phone number. But it’s fine, and I still really like the app!
Really good app
Can’t create account 1/5
It asks me to check my network connection even though it works for everything else.
Edit: I was in the US and tried with 3 different networks.
push me to the edge textnow should be dead 2/5
This app is hot garbage but it gets the job of sending a text done
Worst app ever 1/5
New update means more ads added .Too many ads , I really hate ads banners covers all the screen, and so slow👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Great, except... 4/5
ever since the update, i can send 1-2 messages and then the background turns white and there's grey lines (like what separates the conversations on the home screen, but between individual messages). i have to go back to the home screen and re-enter the conversation to fix it, or close the app completely. please fix!!
Pretty Good 5/5
Thought I write a review. I really love this app, even though it crashes al lot. It's a great way to text and call for free if you have patience and wifi. Recently there was a crash fix, which I appreciate, but I can't test it out. The app won't even open. It opens then goes out. I don't know if it's just me. I don't know if I should reinstall. I really like this app, though, thank you for making this. Hopefully someone can tell me what I can do to open the app back up.
OMG 😛 5/5
I 💖 this app. It's fine that I can't use this wi-fi and I like it because now I have a phone number I can use to get into certain apps and it's free to call in the USA 🇺🇸 and Canada 🇨🇦!!! It's not a full on cellular service that you are getting. Just a regular old phone number and I 💖 that! Thank u TextNow! You've been a big help! I would recommend this app! 😛✌🏼🍭🦄
Too many bugs and adds! 4/5
By Kids 'n the court
Text now is a great app to communicate to people who cant iMessage. Although, the app is very slow and whenever I go to press someone to text, an add always pops up where the contact was so now I wasted time looking at a stupid add. Thankfully, you can get out of the add, but still, it’s annoying! Also, sometimes, the area where you type gets messed up. The spot is covered by an add! I would say this app has WAY to many bugs and adds. I am hoping that the new update will stop these problems.
Bait & Switch 2/5
This app worked perfectly fine for just enough time to get a lot of us poor suckers signed up, then came the "pushing" of the pay version followed by tons of ads and free version that ... Let's face it, freezes because they want you to pay for it. Totally shady in my opinion. They even changed my number without warning so no one knew who I was. Classic bait and switch. Text now should open a used car lot
Slowed down 1/5
I love this app but I think you guys should put text receipts on so you can see if somebody read the text you sent or if it delivered and stuff and I also this it’s kinda slow as far as texting it goes so slow because there is so many ads other then that the app is great
Fix it! 3/5
I love using this app but it constantly freezes and it hangs up every 2 hours.
Does not work 5/5
Ok so the calling does not work the voicemail where is it and it does not call them they can’t get the call. Thank you please fix this. Ps.. how does the voicemail work?
No calls 1/5
By Bubbles 246834
I can no longer accept incoming calls
App volume low 5/5
By Rakim Arnezz
Fixed the bugs, technical issues, and volume
Horrible never will use again 1/5
By destroyer 2244
The app freezes and crashes and the adds cover the screen they said they fixed it but they didn’t
Horrible and frustrating 1/5
It just keeps freezing and it makes my screen weird. It keeps popping up this ad and there is a lot more to way I hate this app too. Those were just some examples of why I hate this app and why it's so annoying. I don't recommend this app to anyone.
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee texxxxxxxxxt meeeeeeeeeee sooooooooo happpppppppppppyyyyyyyyy
Is this app traceable my police or geek squad ? 2/5
In need to know the answers to these
It’s free and works reasonably well 2/5
I’ve been using Text Now for several years now and it’s served my needs well. However, after getting an iPhone 6 I’ve come across several issues. It’s VERY memory intensive, lags horribly after the app has been open for several minutes, and it causes my phone to get hot enough to bake a cake! When I had this app for Android it worked extremely well on all but the lowest end/oldest phones. I would like to see the app security that is offered on Android offered on the iPhone (you can password the app so no one can get into and see your messages).
Cant hear 1/5
When I call someone they can not hear me. I can hear them fine but they do not hear me at all. Whats going on? I mean i can talk fine with my regular service but when I use this app no one hears me????
Destroys battery 1/5
On both my iPhone SE and 7 this app destroys battery life with background activity, in 10 hours it will do 70% with only 1-2 minutes on screen. Must force close after use to avoid issues. I think it's because of the connections to advertisements.
By Songwriting and the president
I got to make my own phone number and that’s great because all day I’ve been looking for an app that would give me a phone number so thank you sooo much
US Numbers only 1/5
Waste of my time downloading. Should've been more clear.
Call service! 1/5
I’ve used this app off and on for a few years. Over those years I’ve seen the call service drop in quality. Calls don’t come through to my phone, they drop during calls, and the other person can’t hear me. In addition, to this at times I can’t make calls. The quality needs to be improved.
Won’t send me my texts. 1/5
Trying to get a verification code sent to me and it is withholding that text. Will defiantly not be using this app again. I know it is the app because I had to change my number to someone with an actual phone number and they got the verification text. This isn’t better than noting because it is nothing.
This app is amazing for me to troll my friends it is the best I really like this app this has to be one of the best apps I come across yet
It’s ok for texting but.... 2/5
It drops signal all the time and when I use it for calling, no one can hear me. It echoes pretty bad
This app stinks 1/5
By Landon Martin
This app is way too slow laggs and crashes way too much. I can be typing a sentence and it takes 15 minutes just to do it.
Why can’t send videos? 5/5
This app is really good! I have had this app for 3 years now. And a long time ago I was able to send videos but the new update it’s not allowing me too.
worst text app ever 1/5
dont dowoad it. doesnt work at all
This app is amazing, it shouldn't even be free! My parents won't let me have a number even know I have a phone. And this works on iPods and iPads which is really cool! The only downside is when you put in your area code sometimes it works but sometimes it doesn't but that's not really that bad it's great for prank calling too!
It’s a good app 5/5
But it has lame ring tones and needs to add iOS ringtones and notifications sounds and you can’t send videos but other than that it’s a really good app maybe you can inprove that in the future or next update plz and thank you 😊
Fix plz 1/5
This still freezes whenever I try and type after completing a sentence or two. Even with SwiftKey. And when I exit app and reopen to see if that works, it won’t let me switch away from the stock iOS keyboard. I’ll select the globe key and touch swiftkey but it’ll stay on the regular keyboard. Typing is horrible and I don’t get calls anymore. I get voicemail notifications the day after.
So this started to freeze when I would type and it took a few seconds for the letters to register on the screen. I was told to use a different keyboard like SwiftKey. Now when I type up to around half of a one page text message, using swiftkey or not, it will freeze for a lot longer. And if I use swiftkey it will always switch right back to the iOS keyboard mid-typing on its own.
still Bad 1/5
the bar where u type things in keeps glitching and going behind the add and it keeps glitching going further down until u cant use it and have to close the app and then open it back up for it to get fixed. i dont care much about it but it happens far to often so now i cant stand it
Surprised to see all of these bad reviews 5/5
I have used this app for a few years because I had an iPod and wasn’t able to text my mother who has an android. This app has always worked great for me, there isn’t even that many ads. I experience no lag or Glitching. 5 Stars.
Group Chats 2/5
TextNow’s inability to use group chats is frustrating to no end. It is incredibly annoying and has made me very close to deleting my account. There are many other applications that allow group chats that I’m currently looking into switching to.
Worked for 1 week 1/5
This app worked for exactly one week. Now I can’t send texts. I can only receive them. And there is no way to delete your account to start over.
This app is a waste.
Hate it 1/5
It won’t let me send any messages and it’s slow. I hate it.
By Bri Dillon
Noooo. My screen does go off while I’m on the phone I can see it in the corner of my eye. It still bursts out into speaker phone. In the middle of my conversation the phone would go silent for 10-15 seconds before the speaker comes on out of nowhere. If I pressed the speaker option it would turn blue but I look at the phone and it’s still black which indicates that I didn’t touch it. It came on on its own. It repeatedly does that the whole conversation. Sometimes I just let it stay on speaker and it turns back to normal on its own without me pressing anything. I would appreciate it if this got looked into because I’m honestly not pressing anything with my face. The speaker option is cutting on and off by itself
I love the app but one thing I’ve noticed that is really annoying is sometimes the text will disappear as you are writing and the send button is gone too. And it had stopped my conversations because I need to restart my phone and be tried this app on MANY different phones so I know it’s not just my phone. Other than that it’s a good app and is useful.
Most glitched app I’ve ever used 1/5
Texting is almost impossible. When you are typing a word it will freeze and take forever to finish typing. Sometimes you receive partial text or text that are out of order making conversations very confusing and sometimes when people send you a text you won’t receive it at all which has really screwed up things for me. I’m guessing all these problems are because of the massive amount of ads trying to load and refresh. I understand you guys gotta make money from the ads but I’d rather pay for a text app then have a free glitchy app!
Freezes and crashes 1/5
This app stays frozen and i can barely use it! The keyboard lags for minutes on one letter! This needs fixed!!!
Was a cool app about 2 years ago. Now it freezes. The app crashes. And when you type it takes forever for the letters to pop up. And the adds are just ridiculous now. Zero stars if I could.
It’s not free!!! 1/5
By SGT GoAhead
This is one of those auto charge apps
buena app pero a veces se friza mucho podrian arreglarlo?
Can’t change phone number 1/5
I was able to change the number I was calling from but now that app doesn’t give you that option
