It's a yearly subscription! 1/5
They auto renew every year. I used the app for 1 month and then deleted it and then today I just got charged $1.99 for their automatic renewal!
It doesn’t work 1/5
Sent a message to myself last week and it still didn’t go threw.
Didn’t help me at all 4/5
Didn’t help me at all
Gives a free number 5/5
To text. Works well for calls whenever I need it
You can earn free calling credits by watching videos or completing offers. Some of the offers take longer than others to complete. Calling sounds pretty good and texting is free. Helps a lot
WiFi calling 5/5
My house gets poor cellular coverage so I use this most often to make WiFi calls.
Love it! 5/5
Im finally back in contact with my folks!
Been using this app for years, still one of the best out there today.
Not free 1/5
By Looney Lady Luck
Free. Yet wants to charge $15 a month 1/5
How is charging $$ free?
Customer Service and Ethical Issues 1/5
After I paid for a subscription service I could log back in. They mysteriously don’t have the email I registered with. Also customer service can’t resolve login issues in a timely manner.
Great app but 5/5
By THeB BaTE ZmA
Great app but I keep getting messages sometimes an hour after the person sends it to me and then sometimes when people try to call me the call fails and I don’t get the notification that they tried to call me until a day has passed but all these things are very rare and the app is great so keep up the good work. (and please fix these problems)
There is just adds and more and more and more and more and more adds don’t spend your time on this app it’s a waste of time
Very good app 5/5
By theBishop 1515
App is pretty cool it's just like a phone but a lot cheaper. Very solid
Gets the job done 5/5
It's great to have a second number. Calling and texting are very easy!
Better than text me 4/5
Got tired of ads on text me and pop up review of their app.
Tried this and seems way better
Fix The Voicemail!!! 1/5
People are leaving voicemails and for some reasons I can’t hear them get it together text+!!!
By jo thurman
Use text plus unlimited on I phone love it
I absolutely love the app messes up sometimes but overall great app I recommend getting it
Very Disappointing 1/5
Okay this app is one of the worst apps I have ever had on my phone. You can’t go 2 minutes without an ad, you can call but you have to use credits. This app is very misleading. I can’t say it used to be good because it never was. Only thing it’s good for is to text but sometimes that doesn’t even work. Stop false advertising! It’s wasting storage on my phone and it’s wasting my time ! Deleted it faster than I got it.
WORST TEXT APP EVER 1/5
By a noraml girl♥️♥️
this is the worst app ever why do you need credits to call there’s like 5000000 adds alll I want to do is text and call I didn’t get this app the see adds come on now this app just being extra
Lost my number after I paid to keep it for a year 1/5
I downloaded this app before I moved bc I was in the business of selling memberships. Knowing that I wouldn’t have a new local number set up for a while I decided to pay to keep my number for a year. In blind faith, I printed business cards with this number not thinking that 2 months later my number would be UNAVAILABLE!! When I signed on, it said my state’s area codes were not even available. I contacted support, they never responded to my messages nor did they acknowledge receiving my message. I’m tossing my business cards, and calling it a loss. I’m going with another app that has a proven track record. Oh yea I paid for ad removal and still got ads. Bad deal. And misleading!
Some bugs fixed, some bugs remain 2/5
Besides text ads they added unsolicited call ads which are impossible to block! The number is identified during the call but in the call log it shows as Unknown. When I try to access Blocked Contacts in My Profile it crashes every time.
I still experience bugs on iPhone X. When watching videos in a row and clicking OK on notification pop-up windows for credit awards, the screen often becomes completely white with no controls accessible. Only force closing the app and restarting it fixes the problem temporarily.
Similarly, trying to click the OK in credit award pop-up window and Yes in Watch Another Video window often reduces the video window to a small fraction of the screen and you cannot expand it before ending.
I’ve been a using this app for years now and today I’ve had enough. I keep getting called by “textplus” over and over again. I answer the phone and it’s a scammer stating “I’ve won a survey from the United States government”. It’s driving me insane! I used to use this app as a 2nd line for family and now all I get are multiple calls per day by the creators of this app. I feel they’ve been hacked or something because I’ve NEVER had these issues. I’m so mad that even if they fix this, I’ll never download this app again. FYI, when they called me, they had my personal information. My address and name. So they clearly are from textplus. You’re probably wondering why I didn’t block them? You can’t!!! It’s textplus and there’s no option to even see their number let alone block it. BEWARE
ALSO! They changed my number that I had for years. 541-392-**** and one day it’s no longer that number. This is beyond BS
ALSO! Great app if it wasn’t for all the crashes, deceit and scams. I no longer trust this company and I highly suggest downloading any other app. Goodluck!
PLS FIX 3/5
By Miyu Suzumaki
I actually really like this app, I usually only use it for texting though BUT for some reason it won’t let me text images anymore? It always says there’s an error and I’ll get a notification that my friend texted me but when I open the app there’s nothing there! Please fix it! 😩
Not working 1/5
Worked fine for a long time without issues but as of late no messages were showing up in the app and when I was told to delete the app and redownload with the update I can’t login or get a password reset email aswell as no response from the support email !!!
Misleading app 1/5
You have to earn credit through watching a bunch of ads to call people and you only get 1 cent of credit per ad you watch. In order to make a call, you have to have 2 cents of credit and that only gives you 1 minute to talk. So therefore this is not unlimited calling, just unlimited texting. Not to mention that you must have WiFi or data to use the app. Since iPads can only use WiFi, you’re screwed if you don’t own a phone and have an emergency.
Fix the APP!! 1/5
Been using this app a while but now when I use it I can send msgs but now it’s getting to be annoying!!! People send me msgs but I don’t get them !!! And then I have to uninstall and re install it and I can see them. It’s gotten to be quiet annoying and will soon be trying a new app if they don’t fix this. I have tried contacting them but they never responded back 😒
At first I thought the app was worthwhile. Recently it began to glitch where I’d get the notification and once I opened the app to read the message(s) they wouldn’t be there. I contacted customer support which is a joke and they have never responded.
It's faster and doesn't crash anymore. Just don't break it before Christmas!
Bad changes 2/5
They used to allow free incoming calls.
Password reset it working! 1/5
I cannot re-log back into my account, I’ve requested a password reset link to be sent to my email address about 10x now, I’ve checked my spam box and still nothing has been sent. I’d like to keep my 209 area code textPlus number I’ve had for some time now. I do not want to select another, especially since that area code is no longer listed under my state....VERY FRUSTRATING, please help!
Not worth it 1/5
I used to love it but now I hate it it’s like the app don’t wanna load nothing at all
None of the massages or even calls
I sent two emails to the customer service people and noone answered in a week 😒
It works decently but has some annoying bugs 3/5
Honestly the app isn’t that bad, I’ve just encountered a bug that I can see the texts I receive in notifications but when I go to the app I can’t see them and I only see my texts to the person.
Was good...not so much... 1/5
Tons of stupid errors. Developer doesn’t respond even after you deposit money to be able to use the phone call feature. I’ve got $22 in credits but can’t receive a text message...how’s that make any sense?
UPDATE: No response from 4 emails to the developer...although they did manage to respond to my one-star review here with a generic response that has nothing to do with the fact that the APP DOES NOT WORK! Replacing with Google Voice.
Stop working 1/5
After the last update, the App doesn’t recognize some phone numbers & people names. And also, it doesn’t show text message reply.
App is becoming glitchy. I can see a notification of a message (which still shows the full number instead of the contact name) but when I try to go into the app, nothing is loading. No messages, no ads(which I'm not complaining) and no features such as credit swap or earning credit works either. Just working yesterday. What happened?!
Nothing loads 1/5
No messages load they show up in notifications but not in the app it’s dumb and hasn’t been fixed but they keep updating it
By heartbreak customer
Does not receive messages..... only show a new message notification on the main screen but when you open the ad it shows nothing, just the sent messages
Update is horrible 1/5
I don’t get incoming texts and when I send a text it goes to them but nothing is showing incoming
developer is way too slow 1/5
they takes days to reply and take too long to fix the problems. they do not have rat area to check their code correctly.
An okay app 3/5
TextPlus is a great way to TEXT for those who don’t have phone numbers. But is a complete waste of time when it comes to making a phone call. I can never call someone without using credits that I don’t even attempt to get anymore. I’m forced to wait for a call to talk as long as I like. The app, in general, needs improvement. There’s TOO many adds for an app at this state. Even texting on the app is having trouble. Sometimes messages won’t send or I can’t receive them. All in all the app needs a lot of work.
Need update 1/5
Can’t make calls at the moment.
It's my go to texting tool 👍🏽
As of 12/5/17, latest update, it won't send or receive messages for sh--! Please stop changing this app. Don't fix it if it ain't broke. I now give it two thumbs down 👎🏼👎🏼
By Its good so far
The texts appear in my notifications but when I get on the app I don't see any new message that was in my notification. 🤷🏾♀️
Terribly disappointing 1/5
I've been a daily user of Textplus for years. It's always had its down and ups, nothing too major. Until 3 days ago. For the last three days I get a notification that I have a text, and can read it in notifications but when I click on the text thread my new texts don't show. What's the point of having a text app if you can't get texts. Looks like it's time to switch to a new texting app. The calling isnt worth it either, have to watch 2 videos for one minute of calling. Most the time the videos don't even work. Thanks for wasting my time text plus.
Works for me! 5/5
By Radical Earthling
Everyone says this app is the worst that it shocks to watch an ad. LISTEN you watch like two ads and then can call. But this works great for me. I can call and text and sent pictures I get voicemails etc... 5/5
The ap updated today and now I am not getting some of my incoming messages. They appear on my lock screen but when the ap is opened they are not there!!!
Can’t load messages IOS 1/5
Can’t load messages what I received, iOS 11.2
Can’t read messages 1/5
Since the new update i can’t open any messages!
Doesn’t work with iPhone X 1/5
This app worked fine on my iPhone 7. The dev’s made the app worse by introducing in-your-face ads, but that was livable. Now, with my new iPhone X, this app does not work properly. I thought no one was texting me back until I deleted the app and reinstalled it, all of a sudden I had a bunch of texts from people that were sent the night before. This happens over and over. You wonder why no one is answering you, it’s because the app doesn’t work! You have to keep deleting the app and reinstalling it. Not good! Please fix!
