by jahneah on 2015/07/23 22:11
I like FreeTone but I think you should upgrade it so you can use the app without wifi.

Best Txt+Calling app so far..
by Kap10Hook on 2015/07/20 17:36
a good messaging app is all I was looking for, but being able to make/receive calls here in Hawaii puts FreeTone above the other msg/calling apps that I've tried. best Text+Calling app I've come across so far..
I Like Using This App.

It's free to call and text and is customizable with all the looks and themes. But if course you have to have wifi or Lte to use it.
It's okay.

Rating so it'd stop asking me to rate it.
Does not work!
by 12jbwodm on 2015/07/18 16:38
I loved this app until 1. When receiving a call there are no buttons that takes you directly to answer. The alert pops up but after that you have to call them back after they hang up. 2. If you miss their call, you can not call them back because their number does not come up 3. You can send text however, you can not receive text back. When they try to text you if says that your number is an invalid number. I tried deleting the app then installing it again 3times and every time was the same issue. I'm going back to google phone.
Love it

5STAR before IOS8
by ShatterMè on 2015/07/16 23:25
After its update for ios8 the app slowed down, force closes, and I receive message minutes sometimes hours late.. I've been waiting for a fix but nothing
Amazing!
by OpalRaine on 2015/07/15 23:19
Saved me money and it costs no credits to call my mom in the States, and I'm in Costa Rica!
POS
by Paullee's Girl on 2015/07/15 21:30
App is crap. All calls within U.S. Are free-BS. After using up my free credits and being cut off during important call, I purchased more credits. I then sent message to ask why I was being charged credits to call within the same state I was in, I finally got an answer. SOME area codes are not free to call but charge 1 credit per minute. But I found out it's worse because I was charged several credits per minute. App lies and steals
Awesome
by Js600000 on 2015/07/15 17:59
Does everything you need to do. Message or call. Love it

I love the fact that this app is addless. It makes money through credits and that's all it needs
So far so good

Strong Wifi and Horrible Service
by Sho Stvil on 2015/07/11 00:09
The concept of this app is great! FREE phone calls AND texting to cellular phones in America and Canada. Awesome! However😔, it doesn't work like that. The phone does not ring when calls are coming through. When I call someone the cannot here me. Funny, while typing this message the phone rang and I thought wow maybe they read message and fixed something--Ha! Nope! The person couldn't here me. 😝

Love it!
by Krissypiee on 2015/07/07 10:05
The only negative thing I've observed about this app is that sometimes it glitches when I watch the videos to receive credits and then I don't get the credits. Fix that, and I'll be one happy camper!
Solid VOIP, saves you when you have NO CELL SERVICE
by Atazi on 2015/07/06 19:59
I find myself in the time of Groveland in December of last year. I discovered that if you try to make phone calls or use messaging using the standard apps on the iPhone or iPad, your messaging and phone calls will fail as the apps need a brief handshake before they can use the Wi-Fi. I tried several voice over IP applications that do not require the handshakes such as Google voice, Line2, Lingo, Vonage, and various others. I was informed by my receiving parties that the voice clarity, volume, and lossless transmission was significantly better using FreeTone. Also, as the name implies, it is free to use and easy to setup, even if you don't have an IT background. So, before you head off into the boonies, if you anticipate the need or desire to make or receive phone calls or text messages, take the time to sign up with FreeTone. My second choice is Line2 as it handles call screening, handling, and/or forwarding with a very user friendly GUI We just got back from Sea Ranch, near Gualala, and once again FreeTone was the best quality even on the really poorly configured wifi that was being stomped on by a neighbor on the same channel...So add a portable pocket sized wifi access point/router and you will cover all bases! I would give it a 5 star rating except the call handling is inferior to Line2.
Best app ever downloaded
by oknando on 2015/07/06 19:11
No bull, no hidden restrictions. This is by far my favorite interaction with an app. Good stuff. Saved my tail.
Ads :(
by Nicka juice on 2015/07/06 07:41
App Is pretty much awesome except for the constant adds even when you pay for minutes ads constantly playing even in the middle of calls I think if your at least paying for extra minutes you shouldn't have to be interrupted with apps at all other then that it's pretty awesome not sure about anyone else but myself and another person I know have difficulties adding contacts we use apple products

by Ajjmandasm on 2015/07/04 21:16
I previously had google voice. I have terrible cell service at my home. I wanted to call thru my wifi since my cell carrier wouldn't let me. I was so fed up with gv! I could call out but no one could call me. Long story short I downloaded freetone. I like the setup much better, can call out and family can call me no problems. The best thing is the calls seem much clearer.
Cool app

by Oacc on 2012/01/28 20:09
This app is great for sending pics, and messages ASSUMING you have wi-fi. If you don't, you cannot send or receive messages at that time. It is great for home use though. I wanted to alert people that you ca delete all messages by going to the column on the left that shows your current conversations. If you slide from left to right on the right side of each bow, it will give you the option to delete which deletes all messages in that conversation. Also the emotion faces do not show up to others as the appear to you, the happy and sad show up as smiles and frowns, but the others show up as cons using meaningless symbols. Over all, I would recommend this app but I do ABSOLUTELY HATE that you can't send or receive mail without wi-fi which makes it hard to keep in touch when I a car or in a building free of wi-fi if you may be trying to check u on plans or something. But, this app is absolutely FREE which is awesome and better than nothing if you don't have an actual phone I would love calling though! Enjoy!!
Earned points for international calls!
by yochannan on 2014/04/03 11:20
I did not think I needed to use this app for much if anything, but after playing around with it I realized that it could save me some money to make international phone calls. I checked the rates for the numbers that I call and figured I might as well try out the "earn points" feature. I watched some video advertisements and earned about ten points rather quickly. Then, I tried some of the "offers". Not bad! I had no expectations of finding anything I would be interested in, however, I was pleasantly surprised. Some of the offers take a bit of time to complete but I found enough offers to complete, at no cost I might add, that I now have over 600 points, which will give me +5 hours of calling to Isreal. I did all of this while watching TV during the commercials.

Good texting (no pictures tho), calls often garbled,
by Junglecat99 on 2015/04/30 08:00
This is a great ap for texting via wifi and it will easily save you $20 from your phone bill. ($20 for texting, AT&T? Highway robbery!) In fact, if you feel like you need a home phone, its worth trying this before you pay for one, as long as you have a backup for when the calls are scrambled, such as Skype (for use w/ friends and family) or another cell. I keep a cheap prepaid phone on hand for long distance travel and forgo paying for a regular cell phone altogether, since most of the places I go have wifi. It would be optimal if every call was clear but I do it because it saves me on the $100/month extortion for using my smartphone with either AT&T or Verizon (neither of which seem to realize that they are no longer monopolies). The savings are worth having to stand next to my router to get the clearest free/cheap calls w/ this ap.
Not getting Picture!!!!
by Brazil going Hexa on 2012/06/11 05:42
Not receiving pictures 😡. Texting works great, but needs picture fixed. Picture is a big deal. Will delete app after a month if not fixed. July 11th 2012 app will be deleted from my phone. Will not recommend to friends. I will call this app "weak sauce" from then on. Two stars cause at least the texting works. since the app waisted my time, I'm going to tell you about my day now. Now I'll tell you about My day. Today i woke up at 11:30 am, it's a Sunday. I ate cereal at noon. My mom yelled at me for not doing choirs. I farted and walked outside. Some drunk guy ran over my bike. I got mad and threw a rock at the neighbors window. I broke the window. Neighbor called the cops. I texted my friend and told him the cops were taking me in. He didn't believe me, I tried using this stupid app to take a picture. But never went through. Now my friend thinks that I am lying. So I called him weak sauce and that was the end of it. Picture was still not received until this day.
It works!
by tchaikovsky sucker punch on 2014/11/28 04:55
I haven't had phone service for over 4 years. Too expensive. Free text/call apps which work over wifi have been more than sufficient for the purposes of someone like me, still sporting a 3GS with no intention of upgrading. So far, this app has worked perfectly for both texts and calls, much better than Text+ ever did. Calls are clear and don't lag - in fact it's taking some getting used to, having this work so well after months of Text+'s consistently deteriorating quality of everything. I just hope the quality of this app remains consistent. I rely on this for the rare times I need to talk to people through a plastic and metal box instead of real life. Please don't go the way of Text+ and allow your service to succumb to neglect!
Almost excellent

This is the best free texting app on the app store that I've used so far, but its ability to send videos is rather unstable. This app struggles to send videos that even iMessage can send without a problem. Also, many of the free credit offers redirect you to malicious domains or scams before taking you to the app or survey you wish to download or fill out. In fact, many of the surveys are scams in the first place and most of them require a lot of personal information. Previous versions of the app allowed users to download selected apps for a decent amount of credits, but that isn't the case anymore. My final issue with the app has to do with how the app sometimes logs me out after I close it, resulting in all of my conversations being deleted. Could this have to do with iOS 8.1.3 compatibility issues?
Fairly good
by Jillianlh on 2012/11/17 23:12
Well fist of all it is a way to connect with my friends which I like. But like all apps it has problems like for example it will once in a while exit from the app to the main screen. It is also one of the slower apps. But it is a great thing to have on an iPod touch for fun and free texting. I know that other people may read this and not believe me yet I still have problems with this app. It's not my iPod it the app I know this because I have tried and experimented with it on 4 iPod touches. I also think that it should make it so u don't need wi-fi to text I would be very happy if it would be fixed. Other than that love it. Far better than having to pay on a phone. Also I don't think the adds are too bad just a liitle sacrifice for free texting. This app brings texting to a whole new level. ;)
Not bad, and it works fine.

I had a text plan in my cell before, and this app works fine just like my cell. Obviously I no longer have the text plan in my cell any more thanks to this app, and the best part is I don't have to pay to use it. There are some draw back for this app. Like other people mention, you don't know whether you receive any text or not until you open this app unlike the iMessage which I know immediately. The other one is there is a thin banner for advertisements. If you pay a small fee, you can eliminate it. Overall, I didn't experience the constant crash or other concerns. I'm thankful to this app and highly recommend it. Only reason that I give the four stars is that there is no alert system when a text is received. Fix it then it's worth five stars.
Awesome c:

I have a 2nd generation iPod touch and, out of all the texting apps I've used, this one is by far the best. The first texting app i had was called "Textfree". It was OK, I guess, but I had many wrong numbers texting me and none of the themes were good, also, you had to get 3 people to text you in order to make a customized theme. Then, I decided to get "TextNow", which wasn't very good because I was only allowed to open it once. After I closed it, I had to reinstall in so it opened again. I haven't experienced any of those problems, or any others, with TextMe. TextMe also has awesome customizable themes and allows you to choose YOUR OWN icon for yourself, unlike other texting apps. TextMe is a great texting app and I highly recommend it. C: 
Not a bad app.
by jono0594 on 2013/04/18 10:40
I've been using this app for over a year now, and it has always served me well. The only big issue I've had is that it doesn't allow me to send or receive pictures. (Haven't tried it out with the update yet. . . Hopefully it's been fixed). That is what took away one start of my rating. The other star that was taken away was for the problems with the new update. I literally could not even open the app immediately after the update. It didn't even get passed the loading screen and would crash immediately every time I tried opening it. Fortunately, I decided to delete it and redownload it, and it has been working fine since then. Other than that, this app has been a very reliable texting app and, if you can put up with those glitches, I would definitely recommend it.
Quirky but very functional app
by Paranormalcy on 2013/11/07 16:51
It sends texts timely. I've tested it for several days now. No delays or missed texts so far. When texting an image to a friend on Virgin Mobile, the image came up as a link to a webpage that was hosting the image for 7 days... Odd... but it worked. Not very secure however. You won't get a vibration alert on iphone 5 with iOS 7.03. However you will see a popup notification in the normal way on the password screen the next time you turn your screen on just like a normal text. And so long as you have the app running in the background,(have opened it once since you restarted your phone) you will get a text notification just like normal if you are in another app.
Just what I was looking for
by Amanda Muzichuck on 2011/09/13 23:40
After getting totally fed up yahoo's instant messaging app bug issues - I set out to find an app that would let me send and receive text messages to my friends that either don't have the same app or even a smartphone. I stumbled across this one and decided to give it a try since it was free. I am very happy with what it does and is exactly what I need. I am a little irritated with the ads but they haven't kept me from being able to send a message...yet. I did notice the review about the privacy issues and that concerns me a bit also...so I'll be checking into it. But overall I am very pleased with what I got for free. I hope the issues that the other reviewers are having are fixed as well because it is a pretty cool little app.
Love it!
by Pumpkin Babi on 2014/12/28 20:43
It's awesome! All of the other free text and call apps are scams and have so many fees and in app purchases:( but this is so dependent! If u google this app it says the numbers are temporary. I have found out that that's only if they don't have enough phone numbers to give to people but I have had this app for a little over a year now and I still have my number! I can text my friend fast and easy from a different state! Calling is okay. The reception is kinda not so good, but I found the key! Just turn your volume all the way up and turn on speaker! I have an iPod touch 7th generation and it comes with the message app but it doesn't work very well at all. Thank you so much free tone!
Amazing and a life saver
by P.funk_productions on 2015/01/11 19:44
I'm just starting out in the hair industry so while I'm building clientele I often become hesitant with giving out my number but with this app new clients can reach me directly from my main line of communication which is my cell phone. The app is very easy to navigate and if for some reason I am not around wifi clients still have the option of leaving me a voicemail which is easily retrieved once I connect back to wifi. Love it and recommend it for all and any. The only thing I would recommend adding is a blocked caller list that's it but that's also what decline is for. It keeps freezing though and getting on my nerves
The thing is
by SawgginIs4Lozers on 2012/05/29 00:50
Text me is a wonderful app but and some may say you have to have wifi and there is adds at the bottom of the screen there is a way to fix that if you have wifi at home you don't have to run up your cell phone bill only if you are out on the go if your not you are fine and second you can simply remove adds by clicking on the shopping cart at the top right of the screen and selecting the remove adds for a month for .99 cents or if you are planning on using TextMe for more than a year you can simply just click the remove adds for a year for only 4.99. I hope my advice can help.
Meh...
by Bradytwin1 on 2015/01/03 00:51
Okay, I admit, at first, this app was amazing. It got me my credits for minutes when I did the tasks and all of that, but now... It barely works. It's claiming the function for getting free credits is "no longer available," and I only get the credits I've so called "earned" 60% of the time. They've removed app downloads for possible ways of getting free apps, and the "tasks" that need to be done in the "Earn free credits" option NEVER work. They're usually about submitting valid contact information so you can win a free gulf card, and the task usually leads you to some stupid survey that doesn't give you the credits either. So in other words, it's EXTREMELY hard to obtain credits. But this app is the only way I've been able to contact a long distance friend of mine. That's the only reason I gave this App an extra star...
Just What I Needed!
by LetsTanInJapan on 2011/10/17 15:29
If you're just looking for the perfect texting app that's free, reliable, & incredibly easy to use, look no further. Because Text Me is exactly everything you need.... And more. I had been searching for a free reliable texting app; one that actually had a single number to contact, and didn't send multiple texts to people I was talking to with all that junk (MSG: & FROM: stuff) Thats the great thing about this app. Its fun, easy to use, and you don't have to confuse the bejesus out of your friends when you try to text them multiple times a day! So thank you so much Text Me, you certainly answered my wish.
An texting app that is awesome:)
by Samantha Rundberg on 2012/04/02 03:27
All you need is wi-fi then your already to text whoever you want in your contacts! I love it! Cuz whenever i get home from school i prank text people hehe shh… but other then that when I'm grounded from my phone i use this app to text my friends and i love it. It works amazingly. Im glad my friend told me about it and also i can send pictures! I would recommend if you don't have a phone but you have a iPod to get this app so you can text your friends! :) it is kinda slow u have to refresh it like once in a while but it still sends and recieves messages and i like it for that! :)
Does What It Says!
by redrose_129 on 2014/09/01 11:49
I got this app so my daughter would be able to text me without having a phone. And by the number of texts she sends me, I'd say it's working quite well! I've recommended it to my nieces and nephews as an alternative to buying a phone for them! The only annoying thing is unless the person you're texting is also a Textme user, although you can link them with your contacts, some of their names will not be listed on your recent texts...it'll show a phone number. And if you don't have someone's phone number memorized, you will have to open any text without a name and review the content to determine that person's identity.
Love how I am using an apple product and it is letting me text other non apple users!
by Gabrielle949 on 2013/01/04 05:37
I recently had my iPhone stolen, luckily with iCloud I still have my contacts linked to my iPad. The thing I love about this app is it is very easy to use, the tone when you get a text isn't obnoxious and you can text your friends with all different phones. It would be really nice if you could change the signature to automatically say something different or change the random phone number that shows up when you text someone, but the awesome thing is it works! I think everyone will enjoy this!
Pretty Good, One complaint.
by AnimeFrantic347 on 2013/01/19 23:01
Well, I personally like this application alot. It works well, only problem is that you can't change the background colors, or edit it in anyway, I would get Text Me 2 but I have one of the older versions of iPod models and I don't really want to upgrade models because the new one is 299+ dollars, and Unless it is an iPhone i'm not paying that much. I would suggest that they upgrade this version of text me, to nothing over iOS 4.0 for those of us who have older iPod models can freely use this application and personalize it to our tastes. Other than that, it's a pretty good application. :)
Won't send texts to certain people
by Giminigrl on 2012/06/23 13:05
I tried sending a text to one of my friends who's moving across the country to Texas soon and even though my screen say it sent she said she never got it. I tried two of her numbers and she still didn't get it. So I gave her my number and I got her text. It doesn't make sentce. And I just made a guy friend and he gave his number to text. I texted him yesterday and he never texted back. If he doesn't text back untill July I'm assuming the same thing is happining with him. So this really needs fixing because it's very important for me to stay in touch with my friends. Especially if I won't see them again. Please fix it!
Text me
by Mat907 on 2012/02/19 21:57
I really like the Textme app, I am able to keep my messages a secret and the app is a lot faster then the other texting apps I have used. The Textme app doesn't have very many ringtones though, if it had more ringtones to choose from that were free it would make me rate the Textme app a 4 out of 5, but for now I will have to give a 3. I am also giving the Textme app a 3 because every time I go to change my nickname on the app it changes my entire number and then I have to spend already needed time sending people my new number. Overall this is the best texting app I have ever used and hopefully my complaints about the app are fixed soon
Outstanding.
by crasshipster on 2012/04/18 14:14
Update: Excellent app, well done and robust, but the ad placement drives me too crazy. I am going back to Gvoice and apps. If you don't mind the ads or paying a little for temp ad-free time, you will not be disappointed. Can't say enough good about it. Original: Before finding this newer version of the TextMe app, I went through a lot of hassle and apps --along with setting up a Gvoice account -- to have the same service and more with this single app. The real phone number and voice mail are premium features; location, pics and recordings are great features. It is all free. Amazing.
Best Texting App:)
by samantha_darling on 2013/04/02 20:30
This app is awesome, I can send my pictures and receive pictures! The themes are awesome and if you don't like them you can make your own! This app isn't slow and there are not a lot of ads, but you can take then off for a whole month for only .99! And 4.99 for a year, which is a good deal:) You get your own private number and you can text anybody with any type of phone or texting app! I haven't had any problems with this app at all, but it says that the Text Me 2 is better. I am going to stick with this one though because its awesome:)
TextMe!
by KnotRedee on 2013/02/10 21:24
Unlike a cell phone, your iPad does not have a working phone number assigned to it. So unfortunately, it is limited to iMessaging other Apple devices only. "TextMe" corrects this limitation by actually providing you with a new and unique phone number! Once it is assigned, you and your friends can update your contacts and start using your new iPad phone number. Your iPad will able send and receive texts to and from a non-iPhone just as if it were! "TextMe" was easy to set-up and is almost invisible in use. This is a great app and very worthy of all five stars!

by Stillholdn on 2013/05/05 16:39
Just updated the May 1, 2013 change. What the hell did you do to this program? The contact list that normally appears on the left is now totally black. The area showing the conversations is only for the person that I contacted last, and there is nothing to press on that would bring up my other contacts. There is a phone icon on upper right, but I would never use this to make a phone call, since I am practically deaf. There are no other icons to press on to help me that I can see. I use my iPad to contact a number of people, including the hospice nurses that take care of my husband. Because I cannot use a regular phone, and I live in a rural area where text phones do not work 99% of the time, this is a very important means of communication for me. PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS ANOTHER FIX ON THE WAY.
Awesome.. thanks Freetone!
by Anonymouse895123 on 2015/01/20 22:03
My landline recently broke and I did not want to pay more money to have a technician come to diagnose it, since we hardly use it. Instead, I just cancelled it altogether to save myself 30 dollars a month. Freetone now helps me make calls within the U.S. Via the Internet when I need to. So far it has worked flawlessly and is easy to use. In fact I used it to make the 800 number call to my landline phone service company to cancel... Hehehehe... The call was pretty clear on my end and sounded just like a regular landline or cell phone! Thanks a bunch Freetone! <3
Great APP! But...
by Andy152948 on 2015/02/11 12:33
This is a great app because u get a number, and u can easily hand it out. You can also call, and text the us for free. So why did u give it three stars? One is because if you use this app while aboard. You have to earn credits to talk to people in the country your in. BUT the main thing is calling. You need an amazing internet Connection to call. If your internet ON WIFI is even a little bit slow you. You while get problems when calling. That being said, just experiment with different places. N eventually you will find a place where you can call! Hope this helps. I would download this app, all others want to charge u to matter who u call.
Just a few problems
by StarlightDarling on 2014/06/07 17:56
I love this app but there a few problems. 1. It randomly deletes parts of my conversations (I'm assuming it can only store so many then deletes em) 2. I won't get a call unless the app is open and my phone is unlocked. Otherwise I get a missed call notification. 3. When sending or receiving a call either I can't hear them or they can't hear me. Yup, that's about it. Other than those I love that you can customize the text bubbles and the background be changed to a pic you have in your phone :) I love hate this app but other apps have more problems. This is the bast one I've used :)
Overall good but some minorities
by Spartacubbinx on 2012/03/17 03:13
The app itself is overall very well put together and good, it works very nicely and is great to use. The defects are that at times it locks up and you cant delete stuff, you need to update the app please. A few changes u could make are you could let people decorate each person they text differently like for example say im texting bob and sarah and i wanna know when bob texts not sarah well with u being able to use only one sound i wont know when bob texts me unless i continuously look, i wanna be to know "oh thats bob's tone he texted me!". I know im only 16 but i really wanna help this app go far thank you. And i hope you take my ideas into consideration.

by EusebiusMac on 2013/10/08 02:09
TextMe is definitely useful, for me, as I do NOT have a smart phone. Rather, I have a DUMB phone, that does all that I need, with respect to voice communications. I also have an iPod (NOT an iPhone) which I have been using as a PDA (after my computer died and I was no longer able to use my Palm PDA, due to incompatibilities with the current OS. Using TextMe, I'm able to send SMS messages to people who do NOT have an Apple device. In other words, TextMe allows me to do text messaging, as if I had a smart phone. I'm also able to do video chats and voice chats. Very helpful. The ads are annoying, but I feel that they're worth it....
Seems Great So far!
by John and Deb on 2014/12/30 19:05
I just switched from text me (they told me they were switching to Free Tone & I had to) & all seems great with this app. As long as I use it through my wifi at home or another wifi my calls are free! Its kind of confusing though. When calling friends it still shoes my same # I've had for years from text me, but when they send me texts it goes to my old text me app? But my calls seem free now like they said they would be & as always texts are free. So when I'm home I Always use this app! Great job guys keep it the same!
I Love This App!
by Chelphille on 2014/12/22 02:18
Considering that I've used TextMe for years, and that they're now switching, I know that this app is basically the same, and just as good. Considering that I don't have a job yet, it's a great way to call my family and friends on my iPod, and when having limited texting it works great! I would highly suggest this app to those who can't afford a phone, or simply just want it to talk with friends! The interface is great for even kids to use, and I've used it for such a long time and I love that it continues to stay amazing!
Nice for free, has glitches
by nervisrex on 2015/02/27 22:49
I use this app mainly to text from my iPod touch (I have an older flip phone w/out keyboard). I tried to send a picture along w/ voice message and the photo vanished - not cool. It's easy to connect your contacts, create a personal outgoing message and other settings. Plus it will store incoming and outgoing messages / calls. You can earn or buy credits to make international calls. So for a free phone # (iFaux) I & free text it's pretty nice. Yes, there are ads always present - but not so intrusive or too disruptive. Free unlimited national phone calls & text (w/Wi-Fi) from an iPod is actually pretty sweet.
Really amazing app
by Brooke Approves on 2012/08/09 23:12
This app is amazing because it is very fast and easy to use and set up. It's just like a phone but beter because you don't have to pay money. It works for texting people with the same app a mobile phone and others with a different app can still receive messages . Plus you can even call landlines share videos and send pictures. All my friends use it. I advise you to get this app it's even beter than a cell phone. I garentee you'll fall in love with it and won't wanna stop texting. It's really that great!!!
Discussing!!!!
by Please Consider!!! on 2012/02/22 04:09
The price that you really have to pay for these so-called free apps is appaulling to the least. On behalf of myself all every decently moral person that thought this app was so great with all of the free texting and voice recording features and what nots, should have known that like every single other app that is free from the iTunes' (even in our games) store that gross immorality was also a feature on the app too. Not everyone in the world that receives something free from iTunes or anywhere else wants to be exposed to the newest or oldest free feature of constant adds of seduction and porno. Stop disrespecting us and our children. Morals in our society maybe on an all time low, however, some of us still have them and are striving by the grace of God to keep them!!!!!!! FREE, I DON'T THINKS SO.
Great app for travel
by Racersmom66 on 2013/01/03 19:37
This a great app for traveling outside the continental US. I have Verizon for my cell provider but when I traveled to St Croix VI, AT&T was the only provider on the island. Using my phone just to text would have cost me $.10 per text, $.50 for sending a picture via text & $1.99 per minute to talk. Ouch! So I installed TextMe on my iPad which uses AT&T. I was able to communicate with family & friends without costing me anything extra. TextMe would sporadically force close but that could be due to a poor signal from time to time. If it continues, I will submit the problem to tech support.
Hello
by Eamudd on 2012/04/12 14:34
I LOVE it! It is one of my favorite texting apps! If u have a lot of friends like me after you read my review, download this amazing app! U will be so happy with the results that u will never delete this app! U can send videos, pictures, voice recordings,and a whole bunch of texts. This app does need wifi though but it is worth buying a wifi box for this AWESOME texting app! If u don't believe me ask your friends but if they don't have this app good luck being awesome! So buy this app now and u will be happier than you have ever been! ( on this app texts can be deleted when ever you want! )
Pretty amazing
by Uuly774 on 2013/12/08 21:33
So I originally downloaded this app so I could text international friends (because I would honestly watch videos and download apps to get credits) but then I realized what an amazing app this is. I used to use Textnow but it couldn't text people internationally. And the different user faces are awesome, as well as the many different options to customize. The only thing I think is a downside to this app is that sometimes when I get large messages, it will jumble them up or I won't receive part of it for a while. Other than that, it's great! :)
Sudden Call Rate Increase / Poor Quality Call
by Metuge on 2014/05/05 21:48
I usually call my home country Cameroon for 8 credit/min. But this morning I tried to calling Cameroon as usual and it says 17 credit/min which is more than double of the previous calling rate to Cameroon. Among all the calling App I have ever come across, this has suddenly become the most expensive App as concerns international calls. As for voice call quality, this App is the worse ever. The only reason why I was still using it is because of the call rate different. Before, this App offered cheap call rate as compares to others. And since it has suddenly become the most expensive, I will no longer use it. And I am deleting right away. DON'T WAIST YOUR MONEY BUYING CREDIT. CALLS AND VIOCE QUALITY VERRY POOR.
So many ads!!!
by Mitch Kinard on 2014/07/20 08:42
I purchased a bunch of credit hoping this app would stop advertising to me but nope! It cleverly slides ads into your text conversations. It makes the same sound for the ads randomly advertising to you as receiving a text would so don't think you can turn off notices. Even with all the credit I purchased I'm still going to uninstall. Also, the credit is too expensive. 100 credit gets you 20 international texts. Sorry but this app comes up way short despite it's easy use. Also, it doesn't have a slide down to refresh/update text feature inside the texts themselves. You have to slide up. The reason I think they did this is so you're likely to click the ads.
Parents took phone and this is just as good!!
by ash.leeeee on 2012/06/27 14:48
I got in trouble for some bull so my parents took my phone but they forgot about my iPod..lol this app is pretty good it has an great alert sound and preview messaging when your on something other than the app and you don't have to be on the app to get messages it alerts you eeven when your iPod is locked which I like compared to other text apps all in all is working out for me only down is there's no pic msg but I'm not really concerned about all that. I love it!!
Cool texting layout!
by Numiz Nate on 2012/02/24 14:26
Well this is really cool! It doesn't need much improvements other than (so far, that ive noticed) it needs a faster responding keyboard, as in when ur typing the keyboard freezes, but it doesn't really bother me. And two, every time I try to make an 'in app purchase' for like the 'no ads', it loads forever and ever, and I never get to see what I want to buy. Way Bette than textnow... "TextNow" got an update that made it crash ALOT. this one used to, but it's awesome now! -Just plz fix the in app purchases!!-
Crashes on my iPod 4 Gen
by Ibuwankenobi on 2013/07/31 18:26
Great app and all but I went to text my mom it didn't say her name on top and no phone call thingy but there was a back button so I pressed it and it took me to the same place no name no calling just back I pressed it four times and it finally said on the back button my moms name I pressed it then It went to my home screen I pressed the text me app it didn't say anything no phone callbg no my moms name and no back button and couldn't even send a text and it is still like that. It happened before but there would always be a back button but this is different. Please fix.
This Crazy Awesome App !:P
by Rawwr c; on 2012/05/20 05:52
This is an awesome app. Text Plus was the app I used to text, but ver since I herd of this one I downloaded it. From playing around with it I figured out a lot of things you can do. Record messages, send pictures, add a signature, add your own theme with a background picture from your photo album and a message bar. This app is really fast and I recommend it. If you'd rather stick with your current texting add, then be my guest, but atleast try this app. You'll love it and won't regret it !! (:
Textme app
by Mioprincipe on 2012/12/18 23:25
I've been using this app for the past four months. It's a good alternative to using your wireless carrier's text messaging plan. For one thing it's free. Yeah there's ads but that doesn't bother me. The only complaint I have is that sometimes there seems to be a delay receiving the text or sending them. Especially if you're sending longer text or media (photo etc). From a few minutes to longer. This could be due to either your connection to the Internet or Textme's servers. Anyway now I supplement it with my IPhone iMessage App. Works good.
The best SMS free on market
by GeryIL on 2011/10/19 04:12
I have been using this app for 2 years almost, I love the new voice feature ! Photos, videos, voice and text, all we need ! The app had some slow moments prior to the last upgrade, but have not experienced it since. Adds are not too annoying. Just the little banner, it's easy to forget it and don't pay attention. I also love the phone #, that now works also when your phone is in language other than English, thanks! I'm a fan :)

Best Txt+Calling app so far..
by Kap10Hook on 2015/07/20 17:36
a good messaging app is all I was looking for, but being able to make/receive calls here in Hawaii puts FreeTone above the other msg/calling apps that I've tried. best Text+Calling app I've come across so far..
I Like Using This App.

Does not work!
by 12jbwodm on 2015/07/18 16:38
I loved this app until 1. When receiving a call there are no buttons that takes you directly to answer. The alert pops up but after that you have to call them back after they hang up. 2. If you miss their call, you can not call them back because their number does not come up 3. You can send text however, you can not receive text back. When they try to text you if says that your number is an invalid number. I tried deleting the app then installing it again 3times and every time was the same issue. I'm going back to google phone.
Love it

5STAR before IOS8
by ShatterMè on 2015/07/16 23:25
After its update for ios8 the app slowed down, force closes, and I receive message minutes sometimes hours late.. I've been waiting for a fix but nothing
Amazing!
by OpalRaine on 2015/07/15 23:19
Saved me money and it costs no credits to call my mom in the States, and I'm in Costa Rica!
POS
by Paullee's Girl on 2015/07/15 21:30
App is crap. All calls within U.S. Are free-BS. After using up my free credits and being cut off during important call, I purchased more credits. I then sent message to ask why I was being charged credits to call within the same state I was in, I finally got an answer. SOME area codes are not free to call but charge 1 credit per minute. But I found out it's worse because I was charged several credits per minute. App lies and steals
Awesome
by Js600000 on 2015/07/15 17:59
Does everything you need to do. Message or call. Love it
Clear and clean calls.

Strong Wifi and Horrible Service
by Sho Stvil on 2015/07/11 00:09
The concept of this app is great! FREE phone calls AND texting to cellular phones in America and Canada. Awesome! However😔, it doesn't work like that. The phone does not ring when calls are coming through. When I call someone the cannot here me. Funny, while typing this message the phone rang and I thought wow maybe they read message and fixed something--Ha! Nope! The person couldn't here me. 😝

Love it!
by Krissypiee on 2015/07/07 10:05
The only negative thing I've observed about this app is that sometimes it glitches when I watch the videos to receive credits and then I don't get the credits. Fix that, and I'll be one happy camper!
Solid VOIP, saves you when you have NO CELL SERVICE
by Atazi on 2015/07/06 19:59
I find myself in the time of Groveland in December of last year. I discovered that if you try to make phone calls or use messaging using the standard apps on the iPhone or iPad, your messaging and phone calls will fail as the apps need a brief handshake before they can use the Wi-Fi. I tried several voice over IP applications that do not require the handshakes such as Google voice, Line2, Lingo, Vonage, and various others. I was informed by my receiving parties that the voice clarity, volume, and lossless transmission was significantly better using FreeTone. Also, as the name implies, it is free to use and easy to setup, even if you don't have an IT background. So, before you head off into the boonies, if you anticipate the need or desire to make or receive phone calls or text messages, take the time to sign up with FreeTone. My second choice is Line2 as it handles call screening, handling, and/or forwarding with a very user friendly GUI We just got back from Sea Ranch, near Gualala, and once again FreeTone was the best quality even on the really poorly configured wifi that was being stomped on by a neighbor on the same channel...So add a portable pocket sized wifi access point/router and you will cover all bases! I would give it a 5 star rating except the call handling is inferior to Line2.
Best app ever downloaded
by oknando on 2015/07/06 19:11
No bull, no hidden restrictions. This is by far my favorite interaction with an app. Good stuff. Saved my tail.
Ads :(
by Nicka juice on 2015/07/06 07:41
App Is pretty much awesome except for the constant adds even when you pay for minutes ads constantly playing even in the middle of calls I think if your at least paying for extra minutes you shouldn't have to be interrupted with apps at all other then that it's pretty awesome not sure about anyone else but myself and another person I know have difficulties adding contacts we use apple products

by Ajjmandasm on 2015/07/04 21:16
I previously had google voice. I have terrible cell service at my home. I wanted to call thru my wifi since my cell carrier wouldn't let me. I was so fed up with gv! I could call out but no one could call me. Long story short I downloaded freetone. I like the setup much better, can call out and family can call me no problems. The best thing is the calls seem much clearer.
Cool app

by Oacc on 2012/01/28 20:09
This app is great for sending pics, and messages ASSUMING you have wi-fi. If you don't, you cannot send or receive messages at that time. It is great for home use though. I wanted to alert people that you ca delete all messages by going to the column on the left that shows your current conversations. If you slide from left to right on the right side of each bow, it will give you the option to delete which deletes all messages in that conversation. Also the emotion faces do not show up to others as the appear to you, the happy and sad show up as smiles and frowns, but the others show up as cons using meaningless symbols. Over all, I would recommend this app but I do ABSOLUTELY HATE that you can't send or receive mail without wi-fi which makes it hard to keep in touch when I a car or in a building free of wi-fi if you may be trying to check u on plans or something. But, this app is absolutely FREE which is awesome and better than nothing if you don't have an actual phone I would love calling though! Enjoy!!
Earned points for international calls!
by yochannan on 2014/04/03 11:20
I did not think I needed to use this app for much if anything, but after playing around with it I realized that it could save me some money to make international phone calls. I checked the rates for the numbers that I call and figured I might as well try out the "earn points" feature. I watched some video advertisements and earned about ten points rather quickly. Then, I tried some of the "offers". Not bad! I had no expectations of finding anything I would be interested in, however, I was pleasantly surprised. Some of the offers take a bit of time to complete but I found enough offers to complete, at no cost I might add, that I now have over 600 points, which will give me +5 hours of calling to Isreal. I did all of this while watching TV during the commercials.

My second choice is Line2 as it handles call screening, handling, and/or forwarding with a very user friendly GUI We just got back from Sea Ranch, near Gualala, and once again FreeTone was the best quality even on the really poorly configured wifi that was being stomped on by a neighbor on the same channel...So add a portable pocket sized wifi access point/router and you will cover all bases! I would give it a 5 star rating except the call handling is inferior to Line2.
Good texting (no pictures tho), calls often garbled,
by Junglecat99 on 2015/04/30 08:00
This is a great ap for texting via wifi and it will easily save you $20 from your phone bill. ($20 for texting, AT&T? Highway robbery!) In fact, if you feel like you need a home phone, its worth trying this before you pay for one, as long as you have a backup for when the calls are scrambled, such as Skype (for use w/ friends and family) or another cell. I keep a cheap prepaid phone on hand for long distance travel and forgo paying for a regular cell phone altogether, since most of the places I go have wifi. It would be optimal if every call was clear but I do it because it saves me on the $100/month extortion for using my smartphone with either AT&T or Verizon (neither of which seem to realize that they are no longer monopolies). The savings are worth having to stand next to my router to get the clearest free/cheap calls w/ this ap.
Not getting Picture!!!!
by Brazil going Hexa on 2012/06/11 05:42
Not receiving pictures 😡. Texting works great, but needs picture fixed. Picture is a big deal. Will delete app after a month if not fixed. July 11th 2012 app will be deleted from my phone. Will not recommend to friends. I will call this app "weak sauce" from then on. Two stars cause at least the texting works. since the app waisted my time, I'm going to tell you about my day now. Now I'll tell you about My day. Today i woke up at 11:30 am, it's a Sunday. I ate cereal at noon. My mom yelled at me for not doing choirs. I farted and walked outside. Some drunk guy ran over my bike. I got mad and threw a rock at the neighbors window. I broke the window. Neighbor called the cops. I texted my friend and told him the cops were taking me in. He didn't believe me, I tried using this stupid app to take a picture. But never went through. Now my friend thinks that I am lying. So I called him weak sauce and that was the end of it. Picture was still not received until this day.
It works!
by tchaikovsky sucker punch on 2014/11/28 04:55
I haven't had phone service for over 4 years. Too expensive. Free text/call apps which work over wifi have been more than sufficient for the purposes of someone like me, still sporting a 3GS with no intention of upgrading. So far, this app has worked perfectly for both texts and calls, much better than Text+ ever did. Calls are clear and don't lag - in fact it's taking some getting used to, having this work so well after months of Text+'s consistently deteriorating quality of everything. I just hope the quality of this app remains consistent. I rely on this for the rare times I need to talk to people through a plastic and metal box instead of real life. Please don't go the way of Text+ and allow your service to succumb to neglect!
Almost excellent
by Ly Dong La on 2015/02/24 22:01
This is the best free texting app on the app store that I've used so far, but its ability to send videos is rather unstable. This app struggles to send videos that even iMessage can send without a problem. Also, many of the free credit offers redirect you to malicious domains or scams before taking you to the app or survey you wish to download or fill out. In fact, many of the surveys are scams in the first place and most of them require a lot of personal information. Previous versions of the app allowed users to download selected apps for a decent amount of credits, but that isn't the case anymore. My final issue with the app has to do with how the app sometimes logs me out after I close it, resulting in all of my conversations being deleted. Could this have to do with iOS 8.1.3 compatibility issues?
Fairly good
by Jillianlh on 2012/11/17 23:12
Well fist of all it is a way to connect with my friends which I like. But like all apps it has problems like for example it will once in a while exit from the app to the main screen. It is also one of the slower apps. But it is a great thing to have on an iPod touch for fun and free texting. I know that other people may read this and not believe me yet I still have problems with this app. It's not my iPod it the app I know this because I have tried and experimented with it on 4 iPod touches. I also think that it should make it so u don't need wi-fi to text I would be very happy if it would be fixed. Other than that love it. Far better than having to pay on a phone. Also I don't think the adds are too bad just a liitle sacrifice for free texting. This app brings texting to a whole new level. ;)
Not bad, and it works fine.
by Its wrong on 2012/12/15 18:25
I had a text plan in my cell before, and this app works fine just like my cell. Obviously I no longer have the text plan in my cell any more thanks to this app, and the best part is I don't have to pay to use it. There are some draw back for this app. Like other people mention, you don't know whether you receive any text or not until you open this app unlike the iMessage which I know immediately. The other one is there is a thin banner for advertisements. If you pay a small fee, you can eliminate it. Overall, I didn't experience the constant crash or other concerns. I'm thankful to this app and highly recommend it. Only reason that I give the four stars is that there is no alert system when a text is received. Fix it then it's worth five stars.
Awesome c:
by queento3 on 2013/04/01 22:28
I have a 2nd generation iPod touch and, out of all the texting apps I've used, this one is by far the best. The first texting app i had was called "Textfree". It was OK, I guess, but I had many wrong numbers texting me and none of the themes were good, also, you had to get 3 people to text you in order to make a customized theme. Then, I decided to get "TextNow", which wasn't very good because I was only allowed to open it once. After I closed it, I had to reinstall in so it opened again. I haven't experienced any of those problems, or any others, with TextMe. TextMe also has awesome customizable themes and allows you to choose YOUR OWN icon for yourself, unlike other texting apps. TextMe is a great texting app and I highly recommend it. C: 
Not a bad app.
by jono0594 on 2013/04/18 10:40
I've been using this app for over a year now, and it has always served me well. The only big issue I've had is that it doesn't allow me to send or receive pictures. (Haven't tried it out with the update yet. . . Hopefully it's been fixed). That is what took away one start of my rating. The other star that was taken away was for the problems with the new update. I literally could not even open the app immediately after the update. It didn't even get passed the loading screen and would crash immediately every time I tried opening it. Fortunately, I decided to delete it and redownload it, and it has been working fine since then. Other than that, this app has been a very reliable texting app and, if you can put up with those glitches, I would definitely recommend it.
Quirky but very functional app
by Paranormalcy on 2013/11/07 16:51
It sends texts timely. I've tested it for several days now. No delays or missed texts so far. When texting an image to a friend on Virgin Mobile, the image came up as a link to a webpage that was hosting the image for 7 days... Odd... but it worked. Not very secure however. You won't get a vibration alert on iphone 5 with iOS 7.03. However you will see a popup notification in the normal way on the password screen the next time you turn your screen on just like a normal text. And so long as you have the app running in the background,(have opened it once since you restarted your phone) you will get a text notification just like normal if you are in another app.
Just what I was looking for
by Amanda Muzichuck on 2011/09/13 23:40
After getting totally fed up yahoo's instant messaging app bug issues - I set out to find an app that would let me send and receive text messages to my friends that either don't have the same app or even a smartphone. I stumbled across this one and decided to give it a try since it was free. I am very happy with what it does and is exactly what I need. I am a little irritated with the ads but they haven't kept me from being able to send a message...yet. I did notice the review about the privacy issues and that concerns me a bit also...so I'll be checking into it. But overall I am very pleased with what I got for free. I hope the issues that the other reviewers are having are fixed as well because it is a pretty cool little app.
Love it!
by Pumpkin Babi on 2014/12/28 20:43
It's awesome! All of the other free text and call apps are scams and have so many fees and in app purchases:( but this is so dependent! If u google this app it says the numbers are temporary. I have found out that that's only if they don't have enough phone numbers to give to people but I have had this app for a little over a year now and I still have my number! I can text my friend fast and easy from a different state! Calling is okay. The reception is kinda not so good, but I found the key! Just turn your volume all the way up and turn on speaker! I have an iPod touch 7th generation and it comes with the message app but it doesn't work very well at all. Thank you so much free tone!
Amazing and a life saver
by P.funk_productions on 2015/01/11 19:44
I'm just starting out in the hair industry so while I'm building clientele I often become hesitant with giving out my number but with this app new clients can reach me directly from my main line of communication which is my cell phone. The app is very easy to navigate and if for some reason I am not around wifi clients still have the option of leaving me a voicemail which is easily retrieved once I connect back to wifi. Love it and recommend it for all and any. The only thing I would recommend adding is a blocked caller list that's it but that's also what decline is for. It keeps freezing though and getting on my nerves
The thing is
by SawgginIs4Lozers on 2012/05/29 00:50
Text me is a wonderful app but and some may say you have to have wifi and there is adds at the bottom of the screen there is a way to fix that if you have wifi at home you don't have to run up your cell phone bill only if you are out on the go if your not you are fine and second you can simply remove adds by clicking on the shopping cart at the top right of the screen and selecting the remove adds for a month for .99 cents or if you are planning on using TextMe for more than a year you can simply just click the remove adds for a year for only 4.99. I hope my advice can help.
Meh...
by Bradytwin1 on 2015/01/03 00:51
Okay, I admit, at first, this app was amazing. It got me my credits for minutes when I did the tasks and all of that, but now... It barely works. It's claiming the function for getting free credits is "no longer available," and I only get the credits I've so called "earned" 60% of the time. They've removed app downloads for possible ways of getting free apps, and the "tasks" that need to be done in the "Earn free credits" option NEVER work. They're usually about submitting valid contact information so you can win a free gulf card, and the task usually leads you to some stupid survey that doesn't give you the credits either. So in other words, it's EXTREMELY hard to obtain credits. But this app is the only way I've been able to contact a long distance friend of mine. That's the only reason I gave this App an extra star...
Just What I Needed!
by LetsTanInJapan on 2011/10/17 15:29
If you're just looking for the perfect texting app that's free, reliable, & incredibly easy to use, look no further. Because Text Me is exactly everything you need.... And more. I had been searching for a free reliable texting app; one that actually had a single number to contact, and didn't send multiple texts to people I was talking to with all that junk (MSG: & FROM: stuff) Thats the great thing about this app. Its fun, easy to use, and you don't have to confuse the bejesus out of your friends when you try to text them multiple times a day! So thank you so much Text Me, you certainly answered my wish.
An texting app that is awesome:)
by Samantha Rundberg on 2012/04/02 03:27
All you need is wi-fi then your already to text whoever you want in your contacts! I love it! Cuz whenever i get home from school i prank text people hehe shh… but other then that when I'm grounded from my phone i use this app to text my friends and i love it. It works amazingly. Im glad my friend told me about it and also i can send pictures! I would recommend if you don't have a phone but you have a iPod to get this app so you can text your friends! :) it is kinda slow u have to refresh it like once in a while but it still sends and recieves messages and i like it for that! :)
Does What It Says!
by redrose_129 on 2014/09/01 11:49
I got this app so my daughter would be able to text me without having a phone. And by the number of texts she sends me, I'd say it's working quite well! I've recommended it to my nieces and nephews as an alternative to buying a phone for them! The only annoying thing is unless the person you're texting is also a Textme user, although you can link them with your contacts, some of their names will not be listed on your recent texts...it'll show a phone number. And if you don't have someone's phone number memorized, you will have to open any text without a name and review the content to determine that person's identity.
Love how I am using an apple product and it is letting me text other non apple users!
by Gabrielle949 on 2013/01/04 05:37
I recently had my iPhone stolen, luckily with iCloud I still have my contacts linked to my iPad. The thing I love about this app is it is very easy to use, the tone when you get a text isn't obnoxious and you can text your friends with all different phones. It would be really nice if you could change the signature to automatically say something different or change the random phone number that shows up when you text someone, but the awesome thing is it works! I think everyone will enjoy this!
Pretty Good, One complaint.
by AnimeFrantic347 on 2013/01/19 23:01
Well, I personally like this application alot. It works well, only problem is that you can't change the background colors, or edit it in anyway, I would get Text Me 2 but I have one of the older versions of iPod models and I don't really want to upgrade models because the new one is 299+ dollars, and Unless it is an iPhone i'm not paying that much. I would suggest that they upgrade this version of text me, to nothing over iOS 4.0 for those of us who have older iPod models can freely use this application and personalize it to our tastes. Other than that, it's a pretty good application. :)
Won't send texts to certain people
by Giminigrl on 2012/06/23 13:05
I tried sending a text to one of my friends who's moving across the country to Texas soon and even though my screen say it sent she said she never got it. I tried two of her numbers and she still didn't get it. So I gave her my number and I got her text. It doesn't make sentce. And I just made a guy friend and he gave his number to text. I texted him yesterday and he never texted back. If he doesn't text back untill July I'm assuming the same thing is happining with him. So this really needs fixing because it's very important for me to stay in touch with my friends. Especially if I won't see them again. Please fix it!
Text me
by Mat907 on 2012/02/19 21:57
I really like the Textme app, I am able to keep my messages a secret and the app is a lot faster then the other texting apps I have used. The Textme app doesn't have very many ringtones though, if it had more ringtones to choose from that were free it would make me rate the Textme app a 4 out of 5, but for now I will have to give a 3. I am also giving the Textme app a 3 because every time I go to change my nickname on the app it changes my entire number and then I have to spend already needed time sending people my new number. Overall this is the best texting app I have ever used and hopefully my complaints about the app are fixed soon
Outstanding.
by crasshipster on 2012/04/18 14:14
Update: Excellent app, well done and robust, but the ad placement drives me too crazy. I am going back to Gvoice and apps. If you don't mind the ads or paying a little for temp ad-free time, you will not be disappointed. Can't say enough good about it. Original: Before finding this newer version of the TextMe app, I went through a lot of hassle and apps --along with setting up a Gvoice account -- to have the same service and more with this single app. The real phone number and voice mail are premium features; location, pics and recordings are great features. It is all free. Amazing.
Best Texting App:)
by samantha_darling on 2013/04/02 20:30
This app is awesome, I can send my pictures and receive pictures! The themes are awesome and if you don't like them you can make your own! This app isn't slow and there are not a lot of ads, but you can take then off for a whole month for only .99! And 4.99 for a year, which is a good deal:) You get your own private number and you can text anybody with any type of phone or texting app! I haven't had any problems with this app at all, but it says that the Text Me 2 is better. I am going to stick with this one though because its awesome:)
TextMe!
by KnotRedee on 2013/02/10 21:24
Unlike a cell phone, your iPad does not have a working phone number assigned to it. So unfortunately, it is limited to iMessaging other Apple devices only. "TextMe" corrects this limitation by actually providing you with a new and unique phone number! Once it is assigned, you and your friends can update your contacts and start using your new iPad phone number. Your iPad will able send and receive texts to and from a non-iPhone just as if it were! "TextMe" was easy to set-up and is almost invisible in use. This is a great app and very worthy of all five stars!

by Stillholdn on 2013/05/05 16:39
Just updated the May 1, 2013 change. What the hell did you do to this program? The contact list that normally appears on the left is now totally black. The area showing the conversations is only for the person that I contacted last, and there is nothing to press on that would bring up my other contacts. There is a phone icon on upper right, but I would never use this to make a phone call, since I am practically deaf. There are no other icons to press on to help me that I can see. I use my iPad to contact a number of people, including the hospice nurses that take care of my husband. Because I cannot use a regular phone, and I live in a rural area where text phones do not work 99% of the time, this is a very important means of communication for me. PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS ANOTHER FIX ON THE WAY.
Awesome.. thanks Freetone!
by Anonymouse895123 on 2015/01/20 22:03
My landline recently broke and I did not want to pay more money to have a technician come to diagnose it, since we hardly use it. Instead, I just cancelled it altogether to save myself 30 dollars a month. Freetone now helps me make calls within the U.S. Via the Internet when I need to. So far it has worked flawlessly and is easy to use. In fact I used it to make the 800 number call to my landline phone service company to cancel... Hehehehe... The call was pretty clear on my end and sounded just like a regular landline or cell phone! Thanks a bunch Freetone! <3
Great APP! But...
by Andy152948 on 2015/02/11 12:33
This is a great app because u get a number, and u can easily hand it out. You can also call, and text the us for free. So why did u give it three stars? One is because if you use this app while aboard. You have to earn credits to talk to people in the country your in. BUT the main thing is calling. You need an amazing internet Connection to call. If your internet ON WIFI is even a little bit slow you. You while get problems when calling. That being said, just experiment with different places. N eventually you will find a place where you can call! Hope this helps. I would download this app, all others want to charge u to matter who u call.
Just a few problems
by StarlightDarling on 2014/06/07 17:56
I love this app but there a few problems. 1. It randomly deletes parts of my conversations (I'm assuming it can only store so many then deletes em) 2. I won't get a call unless the app is open and my phone is unlocked. Otherwise I get a missed call notification. 3. When sending or receiving a call either I can't hear them or they can't hear me. Yup, that's about it. Other than those I love that you can customize the text bubbles and the background be changed to a pic you have in your phone :) I love hate this app but other apps have more problems. This is the bast one I've used :)
Overall good but some minorities
by Spartacubbinx on 2012/03/17 03:13
The app itself is overall very well put together and good, it works very nicely and is great to use. The defects are that at times it locks up and you cant delete stuff, you need to update the app please. A few changes u could make are you could let people decorate each person they text differently like for example say im texting bob and sarah and i wanna know when bob texts not sarah well with u being able to use only one sound i wont know when bob texts me unless i continuously look, i wanna be to know "oh thats bob's tone he texted me!". I know im only 16 but i really wanna help this app go far thank you. And i hope you take my ideas into consideration.
Helpful
by EusebiusMac on 2013/10/08 02:09
TextMe is definitely useful, for me, as I do NOT have a smart phone. Rather, I have a DUMB phone, that does all that I need, with respect to voice communications. I also have an iPod (NOT an iPhone) which I have been using as a PDA (after my computer died and I was no longer able to use my Palm PDA, due to incompatibilities with the current OS. Using TextMe, I'm able to send SMS messages to people who do NOT have an Apple device. In other words, TextMe allows me to do text messaging, as if I had a smart phone. I'm also able to do video chats and voice chats. Very helpful. The ads are annoying, but I feel that they're worth it....
Seems Great So far!
by John and Deb on 2014/12/30 19:05
I just switched from text me (they told me they were switching to Free Tone & I had to) & all seems great with this app. As long as I use it through my wifi at home or another wifi my calls are free! Its kind of confusing though. When calling friends it still shoes my same # I've had for years from text me, but when they send me texts it goes to my old text me app? But my calls seem free now like they said they would be & as always texts are free. So when I'm home I Always use this app! Great job guys keep it the same!
I Love This App!
by Chelphille on 2014/12/22 02:18
Considering that I've used TextMe for years, and that they're now switching, I know that this app is basically the same, and just as good. Considering that I don't have a job yet, it's a great way to call my family and friends on my iPod, and when having limited texting it works great! I would highly suggest this app to those who can't afford a phone, or simply just want it to talk with friends! The interface is great for even kids to use, and I've used it for such a long time and I love that it continues to stay amazing!
Nice for free, has glitches
by nervisrex on 2015/02/27 22:49
I use this app mainly to text from my iPod touch (I have an older flip phone w/out keyboard). I tried to send a picture along w/ voice message and the photo vanished - not cool. It's easy to connect your contacts, create a personal outgoing message and other settings. Plus it will store incoming and outgoing messages / calls. You can earn or buy credits to make international calls. So for a free phone # (iFaux) I & free text it's pretty nice. Yes, there are ads always present - but not so intrusive or too disruptive. Free unlimited national phone calls & text (w/Wi-Fi) from an iPod is actually pretty sweet.
Really amazing app
by Brooke Approves on 2012/08/09 23:12
This app is amazing because it is very fast and easy to use and set up. It's just like a phone but beter because you don't have to pay money. It works for texting people with the same app a mobile phone and others with a different app can still receive messages . Plus you can even call landlines share videos and send pictures. All my friends use it. I advise you to get this app it's even beter than a cell phone. I garentee you'll fall in love with it and won't wanna stop texting. It's really that great!!!
Discussing!!!!
by Please Consider!!! on 2012/02/22 04:09
The price that you really have to pay for these so-called free apps is appaulling to the least. On behalf of myself all every decently moral person that thought this app was so great with all of the free texting and voice recording features and what nots, should have known that like every single other app that is free from the iTunes' (even in our games) store that gross immorality was also a feature on the app too. Not everyone in the world that receives something free from iTunes or anywhere else wants to be exposed to the newest or oldest free feature of constant adds of seduction and porno. Stop disrespecting us and our children. Morals in our society maybe on an all time low, however, some of us still have them and are striving by the grace of God to keep them!!!!!!! FREE, I DON'T THINKS SO.
Great app for travel
by Racersmom66 on 2013/01/03 19:37
This a great app for traveling outside the continental US. I have Verizon for my cell provider but when I traveled to St Croix VI, AT&T was the only provider on the island. Using my phone just to text would have cost me $.10 per text, $.50 for sending a picture via text & $1.99 per minute to talk. Ouch! So I installed TextMe on my iPad which uses AT&T. I was able to communicate with family & friends without costing me anything extra. TextMe would sporadically force close but that could be due to a poor signal from time to time. If it continues, I will submit the problem to tech support.
Hello
by Eamudd on 2012/04/12 14:34
I LOVE it! It is one of my favorite texting apps! If u have a lot of friends like me after you read my review, download this amazing app! U will be so happy with the results that u will never delete this app! U can send videos, pictures, voice recordings,and a whole bunch of texts. This app does need wifi though but it is worth buying a wifi box for this AWESOME texting app! If u don't believe me ask your friends but if they don't have this app good luck being awesome! So buy this app now and u will be happier than you have ever been! ( on this app texts can be deleted when ever you want! )
Pretty amazing
by Uuly774 on 2013/12/08 21:33
So I originally downloaded this app so I could text international friends (because I would honestly watch videos and download apps to get credits) but then I realized what an amazing app this is. I used to use Textnow but it couldn't text people internationally. And the different user faces are awesome, as well as the many different options to customize. The only thing I think is a downside to this app is that sometimes when I get large messages, it will jumble them up or I won't receive part of it for a while. Other than that, it's great! :)
Sudden Call Rate Increase / Poor Quality Call
by Metuge on 2014/05/05 21:48
I usually call my home country Cameroon for 8 credit/min. But this morning I tried to calling Cameroon as usual and it says 17 credit/min which is more than double of the previous calling rate to Cameroon. Among all the calling App I have ever come across, this has suddenly become the most expensive App as concerns international calls. As for voice call quality, this App is the worse ever. The only reason why I was still using it is because of the call rate different. Before, this App offered cheap call rate as compares to others. And since it has suddenly become the most expensive, I will no longer use it. And I am deleting right away. DON'T WAIST YOUR MONEY BUYING CREDIT. CALLS AND VIOCE QUALITY VERRY POOR.
So many ads!!!
by Mitch Kinard on 2014/07/20 08:42
I purchased a bunch of credit hoping this app would stop advertising to me but nope! It cleverly slides ads into your text conversations. It makes the same sound for the ads randomly advertising to you as receiving a text would so don't think you can turn off notices. Even with all the credit I purchased I'm still going to uninstall. Also, the credit is too expensive. 100 credit gets you 20 international texts. Sorry but this app comes up way short despite it's easy use. Also, it doesn't have a slide down to refresh/update text feature inside the texts themselves. You have to slide up. The reason I think they did this is so you're likely to click the ads.
Parents took phone and this is just as good!!
by ash.leeeee on 2012/06/27 14:48
I got in trouble for some bull so my parents took my phone but they forgot about my iPod..lol this app is pretty good it has an great alert sound and preview messaging when your on something other than the app and you don't have to be on the app to get messages it alerts you eeven when your iPod is locked which I like compared to other text apps all in all is working out for me only down is there's no pic msg but I'm not really concerned about all that. I love it!!
Cool texting layout!
by Numiz Nate on 2012/02/24 14:26
Well this is really cool! It doesn't need much improvements other than (so far, that ive noticed) it needs a faster responding keyboard, as in when ur typing the keyboard freezes, but it doesn't really bother me. And two, every time I try to make an 'in app purchase' for like the 'no ads', it loads forever and ever, and I never get to see what I want to buy. Way Bette than textnow... "TextNow" got an update that made it crash ALOT. this one used to, but it's awesome now! -Just plz fix the in app purchases!!-

Great app and all but I went to text my mom it didn't say her name on top and no phone call thingy but there was a back button so I pressed it and it took me to the same place no name no calling just back I pressed it four times and it finally said on the back button my moms name I pressed it then It went to my home screen I pressed the text me app it didn't say anything no phone callbg no my moms name and no back button and couldn't even send a text and it is still like that. It happened before but there would always be a back button but this is different. Please fix.
This Crazy Awesome App !:P

This is an awesome app. Text Plus was the app I used to text, but ver since I herd of this one I downloaded it. From playing around with it I figured out a lot of things you can do. Record messages, send pictures, add a signature, add your own theme with a background picture from your photo album and a message bar. This app is really fast and I recommend it. If you'd rather stick with your current texting add, then be my guest, but atleast try this app. You'll love it and won't regret it !! (:
Textme app

I've been using this app for the past four months. It's a good alternative to using your wireless carrier's text messaging plan. For one thing it's free. Yeah there's ads but that doesn't bother me. The only complaint I have is that sometimes there seems to be a delay receiving the text or sending them. Especially if you're sending longer text or media (photo etc). From a few minutes to longer. This could be due to either your connection to the Internet or Textme's servers. Anyway now I supplement it with my IPhone iMessage App. Works good.
The best SMS free on market

I have been using this app for 2 years almost, I love the new voice feature ! Photos, videos, voice and text, all we need ! The app had some slow moments prior to the last upgrade, but have not experienced it since. Adds are not too annoying. Just the little banner, it's easy to forget it and don't pay attention. I also love the phone #, that now works also when your phone is in language other than English, thanks! I'm a fan :)
