It’s functional but...
TheAppCrittic on 7/20/2018
The app is functional and great! But the design is not very appealing. I have an iPhone 8 and I wish the design was a little more clean and iOS like. Also, if someone sends me a audio message I normally can’t listen to them. Please take the redesign in to consideration.
Serves its purpose! Stop complaining, people!
Text Now is AWESOME! on 7/20/2018
I am utterly disgusted while reading some of these reviews for this texting app. So many whiny, belligerent, pitiful people using this app, complaining about "how terrible it is"! Ok, first of all, if your FREE texting app isn't working, how about you go pay for a better one? Or, how about you pay for monthly cell phone service so you can call and text all you want without any problems?! THIS IS A FREE CALLING/TEXTING APP, PEOPLE! Come on now! Have we really become that entitled in this country that we believe we should be given this FREE app, and that it should work perfectly?! There are going to be glitches. There are going to be people calling the number, because that number has been used time and time again. There are going to be ads, that's how the company makes their money, since customers aren't paying for the app themselves. People....TEXT-NOW does not "owe" you an add-free texting app that is going to work perfectly 24/7, glitch-free, without random people calling and texting all the time, because YOU DID NOT PAY THEM! Ever heard the term "you get what you pay for"?! If you do not pay for something, it is probably poor quality; if you pay well for something, it is more likely to be of good quality. So, you want good quality? Well then, by all means, GO PAY FOR IT! And to be honest, I'm pretty impressed with this app! I wouldn't say it is poor quality. It does what it's supposed to do: sends and receives texts, makes and accepts calls. Pretty simple. Does it work perfect 100% of the time? No, but I don't expect it to. Why? Because it's FREE! Thank you, TEXT NOW for your services! Great app!

Bugs
sleepyface92 on 7/19/2018

This is my second time getting a new number it logged me out and said there was an error and when i try to log back in it says username/password incorrect so when i select forgot password and change it it still does not allow me to log back in
Great but not great
MadaraU on 7/19/2018
This app can be great at moments but also not great at the same time because your text messages do not come through 90% of them do not come through let me say that
No ringtone
Happyhorticulturalady on 7/19/2018
Since the update no ringtones or alerts.
WiFi
wetchi on 7/19/2018
I want to know before I downloaded ad this app can you use it withou WiFi example if I buy the minutes to text and call will I be able to use my phone without WiFi cause I’m currently overseas
Installation problem
Muxa14 on 7/18/2018
Nice app but am having trouble installing it.
Ugh
Emodi girl 7 on 7/18/2018
At first this app was so great but now it doesn’t work so never get this app cuz it will stop working 😡
Great.......but a few problems
Jerhoads on 7/18/2018
I got this app in fifth grade because I wanted to text my friends without having the actual message app. It was great, until I was invited to a group chat. So when my friend invited me to one, I got all the texts from there private account. If I were to text back, it would go to the private account too. Another problem is sending pictures and videos. You can’t at all send videos. When you are trying to send a picture, it takes forever. I was sending a lot of pictures to one of my friends and it took around five minutes to complete it. The calling is nice, but the calls don’t come in all the time for me. Also I will get calls from random people, when I call them back they said that they have never called me before.
Can’t log in!
ashfeb17 on 7/17/2018
I was using it for while with no problem until I sent the same text to different numbers and it logged me out of the app I changed my password still not able to log in or even get in touch via phone or web! I need to email someone or call someone ASAP!
Can’t make calls
Cetronia62 on 7/17/2018
Junk! Good for texting only! Tried using the call option and their no sound from your end just dead air
Works great for a free app
BittenOrange on 7/16/2018
I currently use this app as my go to texting app for my iPod 6gen. The calling is best out of all the free apps I’ve tried, but sometimes can be delayed or laggy. Sometimes I don’t receive calls if I’m in a different app. But out of all the apps I’ve tried, this has been the most reliable and free texting app. The texting on this app sometimes can be buggy on my iPod such as it is way slow just to type the letters. I’ll tap all my sentence and I can watch it finish. Restarting app often works, but could just improve speed. Some of These bugs could also be the device I’m using, because it has recently be letting me down. But all in all, I would suggest picking this App.
Text now
text now best on 7/16/2018
When I could not text or call I used text now and it was the best
False ad
toni brianna reid on 7/16/2018
It’s not unlimited calls !
This app is so fake
zeinaalzir13 on 7/16/2018
Ok so random people start calling me from overseas like what the hell and they would be telling me that I didn’t give them there orders like I’m only a (freshman going to be) like what the hell I don’t sell anything this app is so worthless, annoying and fake

Nikkinae88 on 7/16/2018

AYMACHO on 7/16/2018
I’ve been trying to see videos that my family sent me and it never loads. It Goes to the loading screen and stays blank. I’ve downloaded it a few times and it keeps happening
Won’t let me deactivate 🙄
Rhiya10000 on 7/15/2018
Hi I love this app but it won’t let me deactivate my account.
Call Problems.
xKingyx on 7/14/2018
When someone calls it doesn’t show but it says missed call by... do I have to leave the app open or something so I can get the calls ?
👎🏻
Gymnastice girl on 7/14/2018
It lags and I get emails,text and voice mails for people I don't know
Good
CHRISTOPHER HENDRIX on 7/14/2018
I like using this app for free calling and texting, but can you add a search bar in the market?
Awful
seessedx on 7/14/2018
I was on the phone with my girlfriend and she said bye to me and she clicked but the call stayed incall and I heard this guy saying “ hello who’s this “ that I had called him.
Disgusting
Amoursweetmama on 7/14/2018
I removed this app. It was great at first with calls and texts. But when some person thought it was cute to harass me with their text now app and also using threw hangout as well. That was enough when I could not block or remove them from a list. So I say so long.
NOT IMPRESSED
bennny101 on 7/13/2018
I downloaded this app a couple of days ago, and I thought by deleting it it wouldn’t charge me the monthly subscription fee. However, it did charge me a total of $9.73 to my debit card. I would appreciate if you would end my subscription and refund me my money. Thank you!
Refund
Fuckmen18$ on 7/13/2018
I’m being billed for a app that’s free
Ads Hang up phone calls
submariner245 on 7/13/2018
Ads interrupt my call, hanging me up and somehow unlocking my phone to do it. Too frustrating to use for calls.
Like it but I really want to send videos with iOS
Debbycake8 on 7/12/2018
I have videos I really to send to people but I can’t🤷🏾‍♀️but other than that I love the app but plz have iOS video sendings soon🙌🏾
Nice with Junk
Pandora1855 on 7/11/2018
Ads are allowed in the Column with your Contacts. Makes it annoying to comb through to look for your Real Contacts I’d never put this on my Cell Phone and allow my “real” phone number to get out to Spammers and such The 2 Stars because you can try it free. I am deleting this and just use Messenger on my Phone and I Pad. Toodles
Can’t call out
J-kim214 on 7/10/2018
App won’t let me dial local numbers. It tries to dial then after a few seconds it drops and says call failed. What’s going on? Not trying to call internationally or anything so it should work.
This app is very good
plz do ipod touch-lily on 7/10/2018
This app is actually pretty good I don’t have a real number and can use this thank you :)
Phone number got reassigned
momduty18 on 7/10/2018
My daughter had a text me now number assigned to her. With not using it, the number got reassigned to someone else. Is there a way this person can have her contacts that were stored? I am now getting phone calls from that number, asking who I am. That I “called them”. I have not called, or text that number in months. While me being an adult, I can see through the “fishing”. I just want to make sure they aren’t able to contact other numbers, that belong to someone (minor), that may not be able to see through the “luring”, as they may still think it is my daughter.
There is one problem
The Greatest Lyss on 7/10/2018
The app works good but there is one problem when I deleted the app, the app continued to send me e-mails and I’m not sure how to stop it.
No ringtone except for Texts...Not calls
IvyDew07 on 7/9/2018
All calls I get never ring...and people get mad at me when I don't answer...I don't tell them because they think it is just an excuse...update ringtones for CALLS please. Otherwise app is very good but slow
Im not impressed 😡
I 💋love it on 7/8/2018
Hello, I don’t know if this was your app or what I have random people texting me and saying stop texting me when I haven’t even sent them anything I don’t even now them I know they feel the same way about the problem the messages put us in large texting groups and sent the large group of numbers:would you be interested in getting a lone and i replied saying STOP and the text still kept sending me and the other users/ phone numbers messages so I ended up blocking them i want to know how about 50 numbers that I didn’t know get my number Thanks for your time and help I appreciate it With Appreciation, Madilyn
Working OK
MuzzacLover on 7/8/2018
[2018-Jul-08 = ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️] update... Had to delete nd re-install app to correct issue; was afraid of losing last couple of yrs of stuff (did i?). TextNow would NOT open prior to deleting/re-installing. [2018-Jul-08 = ⭐️] update... Broken app I updated the app today w/ the "Jul.06" update; textnow app will NOT open now what-so-ever. I've turned the iPhone 6+ w/ IOS 10+ completely off/on nd did NOT help what-so-ever. [2016 = ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️] Great 🆓 App 🆓 I love 🆓 ~ does everything in a cellphone that I need without the service plan. I'm in the city 99% of the time; 99% wifi 📶 = 99% great service. 😊
Can’t send text
o1091 on 7/8/2018
I’ve been using this app for a few years now and haven’t had much issue but suddenly no one seems to be getting my messages
😕😕
I downloaded, I reviewed on 7/7/2018
I always miss call. It starts ringing when the person has already hung up. I’ve missed a lot of calls and when I DO talk to people they can never hear me.
Horrible app
ModuleA on 7/7/2018
This app seems to have been made to harrass people and take away their sense of privasy and security. On 2 seperate occassions my wife and I have been harrassed by 2 different TextNow numbers. And after downloading the app to see how it works, we blocked those numbers by replying #stop but for what? They can just go back in to the app and change their number and get right back to harrassing you. Thats bs! And theres literally nothing you can do about it. Some say change your number but why does he victim have to change? Ive had my number for years and im not about to change my number. 1 because I shouldnt have to and 2 whats to stop this person from grting my new number? I never gave out my number to any strangers that would do this to us. Terminate this app! It serves no purpose!
WiFi...
xXV0IDXx on 7/7/2018
I thought you wouldn’t need any WiFi to call or text on this app but apparently you do and then it says get text now wireless which I can’t use safari which is where it brings me without wifi
Great
Meishhmeishh on 7/6/2018
It works extremely well. Sometimes slow but overall great!
Okay...
Ava Austin on 7/6/2018
I love this app and recommend this to people not being able to text using IMessage but the thing is I want to send videos and I can’t.
Great but would be better if...
Courtney56889 on 7/6/2018
I love this app! The only thing is, it connects with your contacts. I know most want to use it like that but I don’t. I wish you could change the persons name in the app, but if you do that it changes the actual contact name. Sometimes I want a funny name on the app, but then it changes it on my contacts too. This also goes for the profile picture. If you changed this, I would love this app even more!
Good but could be better
aabmaa0422 on 7/6/2018
Love the app, except for the fact that it doesn’t show old pictures that were sent. If you guys can make them reappear and not ever get deleted that would great! After reading your reply, i know you can save pictures from the app, but I’d really like to be able to go back through my messages and save important old pictures that I previously didn’t save that now no longer load because they expire. The app should work like regular texting, when the pictures don’t expire.
Incorrect password

Group text.
blue genie 14 on 7/5/2018
I really like this app. It’s easy to use. I love the fact that you can make and receive phone calls. I just wish there was a way we can send a group text. But I don’t want the other customers to know each other’s phone #.
