Ratings and Reviews
LET ME USE THE ENTER KEY :-)
This, while pricey, is a decent app giving you privacy and discretion for whatever your needs may be. IT DOES NOT ALLOW CALLS! And I would realy like a setting allowing me to use the ENTER key to submit the text.
Developer Response ,
Hello! Many thanks for treating the Texter app with four stars! If you would also like to make calls, you can try our different app called Numbr, which has both calling and messaging feature. Head to the Settings of the Texter app and tap on About us. Here, you will find Numbr. Unfortunately, we don't want to change the enter key function for submitting the message as then it would be impossible to go to the next line. We hope Texter will keep on meeting your needs even without changing the functionality of the enter key. Thanks a lot!
Expensive and poor support
Signed up for an sms option since I live outside U.S., attracted by "free" texts to test service. After sending and receiving one text, free service evaporated (not quantified by likely number of texts), and the site then revealed its high cost for texts afterward on -- over and above the monthly fee. I sought support feedback, which responded only with unhelpful after-the-fact explanations. Get clear with them on total likely costs for service you'll use before completely wasting money on a first month.

Hello there! We are sorry to hear we didn't manage to meet your needs. In the App Store Description, we clearly state each user gets 20 free credits which can be used for texting of their choice. The in-app Tariff calculator shows how many credits you need for each message. We have nothing to hide, and all the important facts can be found on the App Store. Please, accept our apology for the misunderstanding caused. Thank you!
A complete bust
Great phone numbers available, easy to set up, straightforward to use, even looks good, but it doesn't work reliably. Texts may or may not come. The one thing it is supposed to do, it does not. Moreover, I paid for a subscription but still only received a few "credits" for texts? Doesn't even charge properly. A total bust. Do NOT buy this app unless they address these issues explicitly in an update.

Hello there! We are sorry to hear about your negative experience using the Texter app. Please, message our customer support team directly via the app, as they will check for any errors in your account and make things right. Thank you!
