I don’t understand 1/5
I’m going to put this honest review because I downloaded this app to be able to call and text my girlfriend but when it gave me a number there were multiple random people calling me and cursing at me. They even sent me nude pictures I didn’t want to see. I don’t know why this happened but I deleted the app immediately.
I really appreciate your good service thanks textnow
Convenient but not working well for messages 3/5
I have a Group message, and all members show up as a phone number, instead of their name. Only 1 person (the one who sent the first group’s message) shows up fine.
App has access to Contacts, and I can see the Group info section show the right names.
Great app but needs improvement 4/5
I love this app but I do have some complaints. Sometimes the call drops, you can’t hear the person at all, and sometimes there’s a clicking noise during phone calls. The app freezes in mid-text sometimes and I have delete it and re-download it. I like how you don’t need credits to call someone in the US or Canada. I enjoy it but it needs major improvement!!
Sir crash a lot 1/5
Every other time I open this app it freezes, occasionally I can get a text or a call through, but man pretty frustrating. Please fix it for predictable usage. I was asked to rate it in app and then it crashed
Use to love this app but now it doesn’t work anymore! Lags! Can’t even make calls or texts it won’t leave the front page. Uninstalled reinstalled nothing! I will permanently delete now. Sad to let it go
I seen my update is needed, 4/5
Yes, a okay as updated w the newest app download. Sometimes on android the phone to answer the phone doesn’t work well, unsure if the issue is software or hardware.
iPad = very good,
Homeless people use this 4/5
I know of several homeless people trying to get back on their feet that use this. Great because you don’t have to pay for service and works as long as you have wifi. They’ll just go to a nearby McDonalds or Starbucks and their in business. Voice is still a challenge for them but some service is better than no service.
Lovely app 4/5
It’s a good app but sometimes it freezes up and that’s not good,you need to fix that problem apart from that it’s a great way to communicate
Good and effective 5/5
This application is just the best
Great but not great 1/5
This app was working fine before the new iOS update now and this app it’s kind of garbage when you call you here nothing but static
Poooor App 1/5
I tried using this app overseas and it continuously disconnects. It never responds. I have to constantly close out of it and it STILLLLL does NOT WORK!!! SORRY!
Major bug 1/5
Please fix the notifications issue. I have shut off everything and still get alerts
By far the best 5/5
By far this is the only best app that I use for communication purposes.
i hate it, it keeps glitching and won’t let me text or answer calls! i need a better app
By Crying Eagle
Ads are very annoying and tends to continuously repeat! App freezes up too much while trying to make calls! Also calls are very staticky on other end according to the people i talk to even with full wifi bars!
Answer from lock screen option disappeared 4/5
What happened to the option to select whether enable or disable answering calls from lock screen? It disappeared in the last update for iPhone.
My name is Kerrie 5/5
I really enjoy using this app. It’s fantastic and amazing
No numbers available! 1/5
After trying several area codes for multiple states it still said no numbers were available for the selected area code.. :/
Experience on text now 5/5
It’s a good app actually tried using it before and it wasn’t going through for some reason known by the owners well ow I got to access an old email of mine and it gave me a number and it’s quite fast actually keep up the good work 👍
Up set 1/5
Why is my TextNow always getting freeze.. I have to close it and open it again.. so annoying. Please fix it because I am using on my iPhone X. Once it is fix I can give star because it works fix in my friends iPhone 6&8
Great service 5/5
It works great and the international service is great
Awesome app 5/5
By makayla co
I think this app is the best thing don’t wast your time on other apps and just go for TextNow I totally recommend this to all of you who don’t wanna spend money every month on an app just to say hey to someone❤️❤️
Can’t even get a number 1/5
I downloaded this app and when I go to select my area code it says connection issues and I have WiFi and data so there isn’t a reason for there to be a connection issue
Love it 5/5
I love text now it’s so much fun I wanted to text until my mom showed me this app you should get this app it’s so much fun and I like I said it hey so much fun to see my cousin and my whole family love it
WORST APP EVER MADE 1/5
By Dev RH
WORST APPLICATION EVER. Never works, and I have great service! I just use it so clients don’t have to have my actual phone number. There is nothing else really out there so it leaves me with using only it. This is HORRIBLE. Do not get this if you can!!!
Good app 5/5
TextNow is a good app to use especially when you have no desire to give out your real number to people. The call quality could be a bit better but other than that, no complaints.
Absolutely awesome 5/5
I love using this app. Especially with the ease of free texting and calling ( both incoming and outgoing calls). I love how helpful the app support is with emails or live chat support just sign onto textnow.com from 8:30am-3:30 pm Eastern standard time to get live chat support if you’re needing assistance with the app they’re the best tech support I’ve ever experienced so patient and kind. Highly and strongly recommend to all for completely free texting and calling they’re the best I’ve ever used!!
Used it for years 5/5
Reliable!! Love it !
Not allowing me to call out 1/5
Every time I try and call it says call fail and I have cellular data ?
Useful but frustrating 2/5
TextNow has a great concept that’s actually really easy to use. HOWEVER, my mom and I have both experienced issues when responding to text messages trough the notifications. You have to open the app itself to reply, otherwise you’ll Type a whole message when it pops up in the top of your screen, send it, then find out two hours later it never sent and that’s why nobody will respond to you. My second issue with the app is that you have to keep resending photos because it shows as unable to go through. I’ll send photos all the time to family and they tell me they don’t get it and I keep re sending.
Love it! 4/5
I am a frequent and very loyal customer! I love TextNow! For some odd reason I cannot dial out to my Aunts phone from my actual phone number, so I downloaded TextNow and use it for that reason! Works as clearly as any other phone call! The only thing I do not like, is if you use the app “too much” it decides to lock you out for a few days and persistently asks that you pay for the subscription.
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.
To load a few ads & texts the app should need maybe a few megs a day. Few gigs? Please. What data are they acquiring & sending? Whatever it is, it’s way to much!
Not all of us have unlimited plans.
I love it just like a real number sends verification codes can call people it’s real good especially for iPods.
Not good anymore 1/5
At first this was my number one go to app for a additional line but now it’s been giving me major problems I have to delete the app and reinstall it in my phone for it to work correctly
Please fix soon 2/5
Great idea, really bad service. It freezes my phone up in the middle of me texting someone through the app, calls as well.
I love TextNow
My textnow keeps freezing
Freezes a lot 2/5
By Sexy star45
Sometimes you can’t call or text cause it freezes
Was good when I first downloaded 1/5
Toooo glitchy. It freezes and shuts down on me out of nowhere. Freezes constantly. Not just a here and there. If it wasn’t for the freeze and glitch, it’ll be the perfect app.
By Your Melanin Majesty
Whenever I get a call or text the ringer sounds robotic. And whenever I open the app it takes quite a while to load/open.
My calls 1/5
I’m rating it one star only because all of my messages and phone numbers on my call log are gone ! 😱
Often finding my messages show sent but do not.
Faster and reliable than it before.
15 day change phone number rule 2/5
The App is pretty cool, however, you can only change numbers every 15 days. Well this last change did not change it actually gave me the same number I previous had and I was very disappointed. I went in to see if it would allow me to change because it was the same number but I won’t be able to do so until 15 days.
Turned bad 1/5
Been using textnow and it has been working perfectly until lately it freezes and freezes and freezes and wont let one read a text or text back... once i open the app to read a message it freezes then i have to close the app and reopen it but it still freezes cant do a thing on it.... you should fix it
Overall very disappointed 1/5
The ads are fine and completely understandable. I would have rated higher if the app performed as advertised. It did not. It wouldn’t allow me to place local calls without requiring payment and I am very concerned about the app’s security as I suddenly began receiving strange calls, texts, and FaceTime requests immediately after the app was installed
I can text my friends
