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.
I upgraded to macOS 10.15 Catalina, and now the TextNow app fails to 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.
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!
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.
all my outbound messages are not being delivered. im looking like a fool waiting on ppl to respond back to me
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.
Only issue I see is tere is no way to enlarge the text.. I am blind as a bat and really need that feature foreverything.
You really can't complain about this app when the texting works smoothly, can send images AND make free phone calls within the USA! Best part is that it's free...can't beat that.
It was great APP in 2009. It’s growth has caused me and a lot of people a lot of pain. Forget Tech Support, it all comes down to buying a new phone and computer and reinstalling the APP after every update. Support is great about finding ways to waste your time. Once they ask for screen shots, they are done with you….crickets. I prefered the way you could watch videos to earn minutes or simply buy them. Now, the ADS take over. Some even blast full volume while the Close button remains unresponsive until most of the ad has played. I am reinstalling after the last update, where the APP is doing a familiar thing. Opens, closes, opens, closes, without end. The phone is a bit better, it only opens and crashes a usual 3 times before remaing open. I am looking for another APP, but, I have had the same number for 10 years now, and would like the company to just fix the thing already.
