    This app is a life saver when finances are low. I like how it is unlimited. I live in the country so when the phone bill doesn't take priority I still have use with Text now. I feel safer when alone up here. Also, I have been able to successfully obtain employment because of TextNow. When a prospective employer called they did not receive an out of service message. Thank you TextNow. Full Review

    I gotta thank my friend who told me about this app, because had it not been for her I wouldn't have known it exists. My phone was off due to the bill being late, and I needed to make an important call. She told me about textnow and not only was I able to make my call, but I've been using it every since. Great app. Love it. Full Review

    Ok so I put the 3 stars because now texts aren't coming in until hours later. I rely on this app for all of my messaging/calling but some messages won't come through until hours later. One message sent today at 10 I never got it until around quarter after 1, and I went on the app and that's when it came through. There really needs to be an update and I read the reviews and some people are having the exact same problem I am, with the messages coming in hours later. I hope the next update will fix this!

    Text now I had to drop the 5 stars because the app is no longer working and I have had to give out my real number and not giving my number out was the main reason I used this app at one point it was the greatest app anyone could have downloaded but after 3 years with the same phone I can't use the app if you fix the problem I'll keep the app and give back my 5 star rating thanks for reading Sincerely.

    I'm really amazed at the ability of this app. I've now recommended it to 15 family members. I originally signed up for 1 month to test the app out, but now I'm interested in 1 year subscription. Can someone at TextNow please make that 1 year subscription deal of $29.99 available on the interface again? Full Review

    I don't like how if you don't use this app for a few days, it tells you it will give your number away. My number got given away, because I wasn't texing anyone. Other then that is a good app. Full Review
