Fantastic app – Honestly no complaints at all

For the first time in a VERY long time, I am writing a genuine 5-star review.

This app is exactly what I was looking for. I tried at least 3 other “fake messages” apps, but none of them lets you send more than 2 texts before asking for money, let alone add more than two people in a chat!

Then I found this app, and knew it was the one.

I can create endless fake chats, add as many people as I want, and change the text bubble color, all for free. Switching between different people is a breeze, and I like the “comment line” option. I use that for dates and times to make the conversations look more real!

I actually find myself looking forward to writing text conversations in my fanfictions thanks to this app.

I did pay .99¢ to be able to change the text tone sound, but honestly, that isn’t bad at all. Also, you can ‘send’ pictures (without having to pay.) All in all, this app is great, and I offers far more than what I was even looking for – all for the price of being free or up to a few dollars.

I do, however, have 3 suggestions for future updates –

1. Syncing across multiple devices. I started this on my phone, and I would great appreciate being able to sync and continue chats on my iPad!
2. Add more text tone sound options. Like animal sounds, different kinds of dings, taps, pops sound effects, etc.
3. Add an option to access and choose text tone sounds from the phone’s settings.

great! But…

This app is amazing for my Gacha life videos! Except… the option to buy all of the above (all fo the features) and a commercial license, is a little on the pricey side, so I feel like it should be $15 or a little less. Also, another bad thing, is that sometimes, when the other person, (the person that’s not my character) types a long message, the sound are off, for example, when I save the video, and the other person types a long message, the sending sound comes too early, so then all the audio is off timing. So I would like it if you could fix that, if not, I understand! If it happens I just remove the audio of the video in editing, but sometimes when I want the audio in the video and the timing is off, it can be irritating. But yeah, those are my onky problems, and overall this is a great app! I almost forgot to mention, is that if you could do an update where you make the app look a little more like the actual texting app that comes with devices. That way it would look like actual texting. If you can’t, like I said with the other things, it’s alright. But that’s about it, thank you!
