    Victoria C. Published date: February 17, 2018

    I love that this app is free and it's the best one out there if you need a second number. I have my second number for work, without the hassle of a second phone. The app has been really laggy though and crashes too often. This is after updating the app too just 10 minutes ago. It would also be great if TextNow contacts could be saved in an address bool exclusively within the app, instead of being forced to save all TextNow contacts into my phone's native address book. It would be nice to keep all of my work contacts and personal contacts seperate. Full Review

    Very clean interface with No-Ad paid version. I wouldn't recommend this app with ads, it's very ugly and heats up the phone. The $2.99 per month is totally worth it. Do note you cannot use the numbers on this app for whatsapp. Works well with Telegram, Facebook messenger, Google (security). Good to have an international number so that people from State Side can contact you even when you are outside the United States. Full Review

    It's a useful app to have and I enjoy it for what it is however I encounter too many technical issues on a regular basis such as the operation of the app where its not opening up or closing or not loading up properly. Also many dropped calls in a perfect WiFi setting. Also freezes up. It seems to have a handful of little quarks. Full Review

    This app used to be decent but now its garbage. I have this app on 3 different phones, and now it ALWAYS crashes multiple times, every single day, on all 3 phones. I will be looking for a better app unless this app is fixed... Full Review

    This used to be a great app, now it is almost useless. Yes you can send messages, but the calling service worked for all of one day. Now it just drops every single call no matter how good the wifi connection is. I've followed all steps (clear cache, reinstall, etc.) and it still doesn't work. Extremely frustrating. Full Review
