I downloaded text plus for my iPad Pro 11.I had no idea when I downloaded it, that going it was going to be, my now favorite app. Not only is it easy to use,it works flawlessly. Granted, it’s a little annoying trying to earn credits, so I just paid for a year of unlimited talk and text. I don’t really talk on the phone, but if I have to, guess who’s doing it free? I pay for unlimited data, so this is a win/win! The only thing I don’t like,is that I paid for the unlimited talk and text, to keep my number a year, and add removal for a year, so why are there still ads trying to get me to earn credit? Please fix this because it’s super annoying. Other than that, good job! Y’all get this app,you won’t regret it!

App needs to be fixed

This app needs to address a couple of issues. I am going to name two: I have yet to receive a call successfully as the call drops or doesn’t ring long enough to give the user enough time to answer before the call is dropped. It looks like there’s been a recent update, but again, I have yet to receive a successful call. The second issue (which I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled in an attempt to fix selecting a new phone number) is I get a series of random texts at all hours of the day/night with random messages from people I don’t know. I think it’s an attempt from other users to keep the free number for longer than the given week, so they randomly text other numbers? That’s my guess, so bringing back the free phone number for a month instead of a week may help fix this issue? But it’s annoying and my husband has uninstalled the application for the same reason. In all, I only use the app to have a free number to give out when I don’t want to disclose my personal number but going to be looking for other options. Not satisfied.

This used to be the best app for people without iPhones. Now it’s just an ad trap.

Back when I had an iPod gen 2, the gen 3 was coming out with camera and microphone. Mine didn’t have any of that. So I used the original apple earbuds that came with it. You could call anyone in the US for however long you wanted. I would talk to my mom for so long at school!

Now that I have an iPhone, I wanted to call someone without giving them my exact number, and I remembered this app existed. WOW did it change. You have to watch a 30 second ad for every 30 seconds worth of call. Not only that, if you or the other party hangs up before those seconds are over, the system decides the credit has been fully used, and so far when testing it, (watched 4 ads which is 2 minutes, called for 34 seconds) it completely “eats” the remaining time.

i guess i’ll stick to gmail’s phone service. at least you don’t have to watch an ad every 30 seconds. and actually seems to have even better connection. for free!
