Fix it immediately 1/5
By Bri Dillon
Guess what? I’m here to complain AGAIN because you all seem to still not have everything figured out. Once again, my WiFi connection is perfectly fine. My cellular data also runs perfectly. I use this app to avoid giving out my real number especially to knew people I barely know and even some family members I’m not too fond of. So why aren’t I getting any calls when someone calls me? It just pops up as a missed call but I been looking at my screen the whole time and it didn’t ring. It runs my battery down like crazy. The ads are still popping up during my conversations and hanging up the call. What’s the hold up on fixing that issue? Its frustrating having to keep calling someone back becuz the ads cant wait until I’m done with my conversation. Ads are popping up in the middle of texting causing me to accidentally click on them. Have you all not figured out how to get rid of them or what? I stuck with this app becuz too many people has that number and I don’t feel like going through the hassle of telling everyone a new number from a different app that I’ll be downloading if this issue isn’t fixed!
I can't create account on the app ... 1/5
I was really having fun with this app I was just in love with it I was can create over 4 accounts in the same hour but now I can't create anything with it when I just go to create account and complete writing the information and Presse creat it says "please check your internet connection and try again later" so I really need your help to solve this problem
Thanks for being the best app ever for the Apple iOS device 5/5
That’s the only thing you can do to make it
By 😭SAD AND DISAPPOINTED😭
I hate you. This is retarded every time I don’t send a text it changes my number and sometimes when I’m connected to WiFi it says not connected try again and I keep getting random calls and texts from random people like telemarketers!!! 🤬
Great way for the scammers to text. These kind of apps should not be available. Crap!
So whenever I try to get on the app, it loads and keeps exiting out on me every time I try to go on it. Sometimes when I try to type, it doesn't show me what I'm typing so I have to clear my phone and get back on it. That's not all. Sometimes when I text someone, it shows the loading symbol like I don't have internet,but I do. The worst is that whenever I go back on it, IT LOGS OUT OF MY ACCOUNT AND WHENEVER I TYPE IN MY USERNAME AND PASSWORD, it still won't let me on. If you could, please try to fix these issues.
This stinks 1/5
By Normanis 0305
I get Random messages my number that isn't even an actual phone number and I get them all the time I'll get five in a row sometimes
Terrible now 2/5
Used to be great,,, I’m even paying for it now and it worse ugh
Battery drains so fast on calls 1/5
This app is trash on my iPhone 5c, so slow, keeps saying I have a missed call but the phone never rung on my end, sometimes the other party can't hear me AT ALL & sometimes my texts don't send. FIX THIS APPPPPPP
Great app 5/5
I just use this for text. :) people should not complain so much about ads and call XD like just get premium or T-Mobile dummy's
Great to have a second number, but SOOOO glitchy 2/5
I have to chalk it up to all the ads. Remember those websites back in the day that insisted on running flash ads all along their sidebar and banner ads on the top and bottom? That's this app. There are two or three ads running simultaneously, many are not static, and they load new ones every so often. Whenever a new one loads or an animated ad plays (whether gif like or other) the texting part of this app becomes nearly unusable. More often than not, I have to retype words because it messes with the keyboard input speed. It gets rapidly worse during the session of use until I have to close and reopen. And outbound calls are impossible-I've given up.
I would purchase the app to get rid of the ads, but have no confidence that the quality would improve-the free version is *that* bad.
I would give it a one-star for usability, however, I am grateful to have that second number as a dual citizen in a country where Google Voice is unavailable (otherwise, I'd get a second number there). At least people can call in with it-but making calls? No. And texting? A flip phone keyboard would be faster than trying to use this app.
Where is the second version of this app 4/5
For some reasons I can’t find the second textnow app I usually have both on my phone , please I want you guys to bring it back even if it’s going to be paid I will pay ....it’s been of a very great use to me , thanks and stay blessed.
I have been using the app for a while and I love it despise the ads it has.... still think is a great app however lately it have been crushing. I am not able to keep the app opened for more than 10 seconds as it just crash. I have an Ipad Air 2 running IOS 11.1.1. The app works perfect in my android Phone.
Kept getting spam calls deleted 1/5
Deleted off phone due to spam calls. Paid for this app when it first started I think it was $5.99 or $6.99 now they want me to pay again to get rid of pop ups that were never in the original app when I purchased it back in the beginning. Tired of app company's trying to weasel more money out of people after the already paid way back when.
Fix up 5/5
By Gmail Is Great
An improvement is that you let us have a number that can be used in apps like WhatsApp
Can’t create account 1/5
I CANT GET PASS CAPTCHA
Could be a lot better 3/5
I used to love this app but I think that the ads have gotten a little more annoying because they are right in front of the keyboard and it’s really hard to text, I understand that in order to get rid of ads you have to buy the actual version but maybe they should just be put in a new spot. Another thing that kind of annoys me is how much storage it takes up. Even after I delete my messages it still takes up lots of room. I think we also need to be able to send videos too. But I always rely on it in the end so thank you for making this app😉
I do like the but, but a few bugs in the app. 3/5
By Areesh Malik (Areesh101)
I use the TextNow app, and it looks so good! So good, that it’s helpful to me! But theirs one problem, when I open the app on my iPad Pro 9.7, the app crashes, so fix the error!
Spam filled & Bandwidth Hog! 1/5
Where to begin? For 'free' texting & calls it has the potential to work well. Sadly the developers use all available bandwidth to shove ads in your face! Because of this the calls are choppy & texts frequently fail to send.
Do you value your data? If so, avoid this app! It ate up several gigs on my limited data plan. I'm sorry I ever installed it.
Had this app awhile back, said it was free but my friend called me twice and both times she said it charged $0.99 to her parents phone bill.
A hate that it cuts out and a stranger messaged me a inappropriate link and never texted back
The app has been getting worse. Can’t even answer a call because it will end and start to ring again. Also not responsive most of the time.
Won’t open 1/5
I just got the most recent update today but now it will only open for about 2 seconds then kick me out of the app and it’s really frustrating me. I’ve been trying to open it for at least 15 minutes and it just won’t stay open, I would like to use the app but I just can’t! Could this please be fixed?!?
I like it 4/5
It’s nice to finally have a app that can do it all
I was originally going to leave a 5 Star, but here’s where my recent disappointment comes in...
I was super grateful for finding this app as it was super convenient for work, but the ads popping up at the bottom & in between the messages lately causes it to CONSTANTLY freeze, slow down or just close out.
They need to limit their ads to ONE section & maybe have a different schedule of how long ads are shown, because I think the ads constantly changing every few seconds is what’s causing the issue,
Like keep them down at the bottom so it doesn’t overload the apps working capabilities. It gets REALLY frustrating when I’m trying to text & my text just freezes up & wont write anything while the app is trying to catch up!
If this issue isn’t fixed, I’m going have to revert back to Hushed.
Unable To Read Text 5/5
I’ve had multiple issues with this App. Starting November 5th with letters missing from texts. Now weird symbols and words completely gone. I upgraded and my phone is still missing messages please fix! I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled still no resolution. Please fix.
iPhone X Support PLEASE 4/5
Has a few bucks but I’ve been noticing it’s been better than before. Just needs that iPhone X support and a few more bug cleanings and it’ll be perfect (:
I have an iPod which means I can’t text any other devices so I use this to text friends with androids and other phones like that, and I don’t text them often,I don’t call people so the ads are fine with me,I only did a review so that you can think 🤔 of the app differently than all those other ads if u are gonna use it as little as I do than YES👍🏼 get the app but really if u r gonna use it differently I suggest something different
I hope 🤞🏻 this was helpful
This is a good app 5/5
I think this is a good app because it works pretty well most times but the one bad thing about it is that it glitches a lot and like it doesn't get the new emoji up dates sometimes and it is really annoying.
Data drain 2/5
I use this a lot. For reasons unknown it's used 6 GB of data in 10 days. That's got to go. Unless there's a way to fix that
Had been receiving phone calls from an 800 number and all of a sudden I can’t receive anymore. There has been a block out on my number. What happened?? Need fixed.
Causes major problems!!!! 2/5
When it works, it's average. BUT, you never know when is working. My girlfriend had become extremely upset when she texts and my answer doesn't come through. Today, i sent 15 texts between 6 and 8.... She didn't get any of them till 2:30 in the morning. Then she got all of them. Since she didn't know what they were about, she became frantic because some were about a friend in a car crash and she thought it was me. It's worth what you pay, zero
Is it just me, or do all their responses sound like bullshxx. Don’t give us lipservice, fix the problem!
There is an issue where the ad box will sometimes cover the text box and send button
Failure with iPhone X 1/5
You get no notifications when you have the iPhone X!
Charged me without permission 3/5
This app is okay could be faster sometimes when I text it takes forever for the screen to match what I’ve typed also I signed up for a trial fee period now I’m being charged please make the app more compatible with the new IOS
By Wolffoxie and mad wolf
It’s so weird,I can call but it’s not letting me text it won’t go through only calls and drawing texts go through plz help and fix this bug thx
Can only use with wifi 2/5
I hate how you can only use with wifi. There is another like this one that you can use without wifi but you can't change the number when you get someone stalking you. This app would be great if you could call off of cheap paid credits like other app and if you could put it on speaker phone while it is dialing. I hate not being able to use speaker phone while dialing. Recently the app keeps freezing up for me too. Can't even finish a text or make a call.
Fix the app. People have to be calling me 3 to 5 times so I can hear the persons voice or something. It’s really frustrating.
It's Nice That I Can Talk To My Mom, But, There Are So Many Adds! I Can Barely Even Type Because The Keyboard Is Very Slow And Again, So Many Adds! I Can't Even Text Anyone Without Throwing A Fit, Because This App is HORRIBLE! At The Very Least... I Can Text My Mom... One Star.
Good app now bad 1/5
By Tootsie Rich
I hate the new update
Looking for another app!! 2/5
Texting is not a problem. But if you're looking to have a conversation I'd look elsewhere. I've never been able to have a conversation once that you either have to say hello 5-6 times if the person doesn't hang up first. Complain they can't hear your every other work. That is if your lucky if the call even connected. Which it generally says "called failed"
By Random Dundee
Sadly got hacked on here and it was a pain. But overall, less ads, and then it'll be better.
This app keeps crashing.
This app is very useful! It’s helped my in some very difficult times! I was driving one day, my service had ran out on my phone. Not one single person stopped to help(someone usually does). I was barely picking up someone’s WiFi. I was barely able to make a call to get help. Thank you TextNow 😊
It keeps saying call rejected 4/5
I don’t know what’s going on but calls won’t go through it keeps saying call rejected and I’ve only been using this app for a few days
Still Shows Ads After Paying For Subscription 1/5
DO NOT PAY FOR THE UPGRADE! This app worked fine before but now even with my paid subscription it is still showing ads. DO NOT PAY FOR THE UPGRADE!
Can these numbers be tracked?
By User name is sooooo cool I pee
I love this app it works like a charm
