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!


Don’t get this App

I tell you what if they know it’s not going to work calling an American number, and then sit there and have the same audacity to say because American laws they can’t call American, which is a lie. If that was the case. Apps like TextNow, Pinger, Next would be nonexistent too. This is a scam. They should be ashamed. I don’t really write reviews often but I’m gonna call this one out like I see it.

Apple, I’m asking you to do something to get this scam of a company out of here for the hard-working Americans.

Developer Response ,

Hello there! We'd like to apologize for the inconvenience caused. Texter app allows you to call US phone numbers without any restrictions. Unfortunately, texting isn't permitted due to US network restrictions. Texter app offers anonymous VoIP phone numbers for private calling and texting, but US laws restrict receiving messages from anonymous phone numbers. If other app providers allow texting services to US numbers, they are either breaking the law or using users' data to register the phone numbers, which means the texting is not anonymous. Please trust us that we wish to allow texting to US numbers as much as you do, but we cannot. If you experience any issues while calling US numbers, please get in touch with our customer support directly via the app, and we will help you resolve the issue. We appreciate your understanding!
