Convenient & easy to use

Enjoying the app so far. Only problem I’ve encountered is the Doodle Pad freezing up. Also, the selection of cards should have more a variety within the categories provided. I would definitely recommend this app.

This app is great! Super convenient and easy to use and every time I've had a question or concern, their customer service has been super helpful. They even called ME back when our call was disconnected. They respond with answers to my questions within a couple hours when I've emailed them and within a few minutes when I've called. Great job TextBehind, keep up the good work!

Super easy!

I love this app. Makes it really easy to write back and forth. The pictures I send get printed on regular paper not photo paper so make sure you picture is clear. When inmates write back I get an email and a text informing me. It takes a few weeks for inmate to get a message and a few for me to get one in return. I have not used this for $ orders just letters and pictures.
