Editors' review

TextNow is a well-designed messaging app that enables you to communicate with friends by using a working phone number. This program is truly free to use and using it is very easy, but we noticed that occasional performance issues may occur during operation.

Pros

Prompt and reliable: We sent texts and pictures easily using TextNow's contact retrieval tool, which we found to be incredibly thorough. Our messages were sent and received in real time, phone calls always connected, and voice was processed without any noticeable delay or clarity issues.

Excellent value: Sending text messages costs nothing with this service, and you will see that TextNow has made earning credits for phone calls an easy and entertaining process. We believe the amount of credits earned from each offer is very fair.

Personalized options: You not only have access to a custom recorded voicemail client with this application, but TextNow also gives you features such as wallpapers and signatures, providing a better experience. The Facebook and Twitter tools worked great during our tests, quickly connecting us with friends.

Cons

Audio issues: During a few phone calls, we observed a faint static-like noise on our side of the call. This was not a large distraction, but because calls rely on credits and have some value, you may be unsatisfied with this phenomenon.

Bottom Line

TextNow is one of the truly free applications on the market that is worth downloading. The fast and uncomplicated tools, in addition to the easy-to-earn credits, make using this program a breeze. We only suggest TextNow include more special features like the games and images hosted by Kik. Anyone needing free communication will love using TextNow.
