Decent App, but needs work
I have to update my review and reduce the rating from 5 stars to 3 stars. The texting functionality is perfect. The voice calls, however, are inconsistent. There are many times when someone calls my work phone and that phone rings, but I get no notifications at all on my iPhone resulting in many important calls being missed. Often these missed calls don’t even show in my call log in the app. When the calls do come through, about 1/3 of the time the caller can hear me, but I can’t hear them. With a little bit of work, this app can truly be incredible.
I haven’t been this impressed by an app in a long time. I have two cell phones- an iPhone which is my person phone and a Samsung Galaxy which is a company issued work phone. I hate carrying two phones around and now I don’t have to thanks to this app. I’m able to add my work number to the Verizon Messages app and get all of my work texts through that and I can even make and receive phone calls from my work number directly through the app. I’ve downloaded the MS Outlook app for my work email and now I’m all set. I no longer carry my work phone with me and I love it! I highly recommend this app!
i love this app, but there is 1 problem
i absolutely love this app, i downloaded on my iphone because i wanted to accessorize my messaging app, yes it looks pretty good now, but i noticed something. When i message iphone users who use imessage, i can’t see their messages on the app, so then i have to go out of the app, and go to imessage to see their messages, another thing i noticed is that when you message someone on this app and they message you back, you get a notification from your original messaging app as well, please fix that, it gets annoying when i get 2 notifications per message when it isn’t an iphone user. One final thing is that when i receive a notification that someone texted me, it only shows their phone number and i don’t know who texted me until i’m in the app, which we all know that sometimes you want to ignore people, but you can’t do that here because you don’t know who it is. that’s all, thanks.
Ups and downs
I have iPhone 6S. It’s getting to the point where it isn’t notifying my when I gets texts randomly. I was excited to find this app. My phone alerts me now thru this app when I get texts, except for iMessages, which is fine. I chose not to turn off the iMessage feature on my phone. This app is great for texting those without iMessage. It says sent, delivered, read, and shows when someone is typing u back, just like iMessaging. I like how customizable this app is. Backgrounds, fonts and text bubble colors. And it is syncing between my phone, iPad and Apple Watch, which wasn’t working as it should thru the regular message app that comes on all these devices. It’s nice to be able to text people without Apple devices from my iPad too. However, this app is glitchy. It will shutdown randomly, and then you lose whatever u were going to send in a text, even pics, and have to type it all again. That is frustrating. And sometimes when I receive texts it will say who the text is from by name, and other times just show the phone number, even if you have been continually texting the same person who is a saved contact. So over all it’s an ok app. If the glitches were addressed, I would have given 5 stars.
