Terrible from the start

Literally just downloaded this for the first time and it was saying that it cant even sign me up. Despite all of the negative reviews i saw on here thought i would give it a try. Complete waste of time. STEER CLEAR!! This app is nothing but a farce.

The app and service are very good. It used to steal focus from anything else every time the Mac woke from sleep (this in my experience is on a Retina MacBook Pro 15"), but I haven't had that issue anymore. My only gripe is that there is no option to disable hardware acceleration (use of the discrete GPU), which I don't see any need for. This makes me have to quit the app so that it doesn't waste battery power on the NVidia GPU that a simple webpage doesn't need in the first place.

Good but failing again

I got a text this morning saying that they are failing. I have had a different version of the app once before. But of course that one failed and you cannot keep your old number. you have to make a new account and add all the numbers you had. I have done this once before and I will not use it again due to the unstabbility of the company. I am outraged because I love this app you can call and text from it send images etc. But the last one you could only text. Please do not get this app because it will fail soon. I am now looking for a new text app for MacBook Air.
By this game is amazing get it

Broken in macOS 10.15 Catalina

I upgraded to macOS 10.15 Catalina, and now the TextNow app fails to launch.
By Canyoneer

doesn't launch

literally the first time I tried to open it on a new top of the line macbook pro it gave me "unknown error." If it has that from the get go, no way can I trust this as a phone app.

Broken while using macOS 10.15

Refuses to open. Throws an "Uncaught Exception" error every time it opens. Hot garbage, sad the desktop app isn't as good as the mobile app!

No longer works

Stopped working after recent update. App store seems to have no remove feature, so dragged the icon to the trash and cleared trash. Now app store will not allow it to reinstall because it thinks it is still installed and they offer no dmg download on their site. Really too bad that it stopped working. Before I removed it the program would start then go to not responding right away.

Waste of Time - Aug. 2019

Tried to sign up just sits and spins without any movment to registration success page. Should have listened to the other 1 star reviews. The 5 stars are probably bogus.
By Tiger Webster
