Ratings and Reviews
This app is just one shade from being a freaking scam. They do tell you if you schedule a video and the other party doesn’t show, you still get charged. Of course, with covid these days, there’s no way to tell if the time you schedule is going to be ok for you loved one your trying to connect to. But you get an email that says the video time was approved. The stupid app takes 5 minutes to connect (I guess all the good programmers went to Zoom) but also times out of the other party doesn’t show in the 5 minutes. But they still take your money. Shame on them. You should be ashamed of your self for working for this crappy company.
Frustrating (but finally cleared up the problem)
I was finally able to determine that the problem I was having with getting phone funds added to an inmate’s account was actually caused by my bank’s VISA Fraud Prevention company who saw the site as one that fit their criteria as often a target for fraudulent use of stolen credit cards. It want an issue with the app., but because the person who responded to my contact for help advised me that they didn’t service the facility I was trying to deposit funds to, and which I was finally able to do with the bank overriding the VISA Fraud flagging and denial, I’m taking off one star in my rating. Obviously, you DO service the facility to which I am making my deposit. Thanks for all the “help” and not replying to my follow-up message. *****
I continually get a message that my transaction is denied when trying to add phone funds to an inmate’s account. I try multiple times every month, and eventually it decides to accept it. Unfortunately, by then I’ve already had VISA Fraud prevention questioning that there are numerous attempts. This is incredibly frustrating. I’ve tried to add funds by phone, but his facility is not among the limited options. SO frustrating, and I’ve written to ask for help numerous times. Not a lot of long term help there either. I really wish there was another option but I’m out of state, so can’t make deposits in person at kiosk.
Do this is what our gov pays to have apps made?!!
One big ole webpage that is then feed into Apple‘s development and they wrap the application around it. Then they hook the buttons up to jump to specific parts of the page and mask off the rest of the pages. Whoever made this was basically an html web developer who knew a little bit too much. Right now you can’t even chose the state of California unless you hold your nose just right and stand on one foot for some time to get it to show up sometimes maybe. Absolutely ridiculous.
Hi blow a horn. Let some inmates lose for the trouble you caused them from using this app.
