Text free - Free Text + Call for Android

By Pinger Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Sep 9, 2014

The Pinger Textfree messaging application provides all the needed tools to call and message your friends for free. Offering helpful features and top-notch performance, this application is sure to impress and make an excellent alternative to your standard messenger.

Pros

Multiple abilities: Pinger Textfree gives you the power to send text and video messages as well as place phone calls. Integrated with Facebook, this application also finds your contacts and assigns them photos. The custom ringtones and other options help give you a personalized experience, and the safety tools, like call blocking, are excellent.

Awesome performance: This application runs smoothly without any hang-ups, and Textfree easily sent and received our test picture and text messages. Being that this program uses an internet connection, we were most surprised by the exceptional call quality experienced by us and the receiving device.

Cost effective: There are enough options provided by Textfree for you to truly be able to use this program for free. Those using this program can make free calls to each other, and the amount of partnered offers given to you is more than enough to earn call credits.

Cons

Notification errors: Pinger Textfree always received text messages, but we observed that sometimes no notification was given that a new message arrived. This usually occurred when the connection was momentarily disconnected, so you should routinely check your inbox to avoid missing something important.

Bottom Line

We are impressed with Pinger Textfree's overall reliability and excellent performance. If you want an inexpensive messaging application, then Pinger Textfree may be an option as it is incredible.

Developer's Description

Textfree is the free calling and free SMS app that gives you a real US phone number so you can text anyone, even if they don't have the app. Keep in touch with features such as free SMS messaging, group messaging, free MMS picture messaging, international texting & calling, voicemail and more--all for free.

CUSTOM NUMBER SELECTOR - Choose your area code and search memorable numbers like, "(555) 414-SARA," simple sequences like "(555) 500-2525," or combinations that are, "JUST4U."

UNLIMITED TEXTS & PICTURES - Send unlimited SMS and MMS picture messages for free.

FREE CALLING - App-to-App calling and any incoming calls are always free. Outbound calling minutes are easy to earn or super cheap to buy. Say, "Hola!" because calls to Mexico are now supported as well.

REAL PHONE NUMBER - Having a real US number means you can call your grandma's landline, order a pizza, and text anyone with a cellphone. It also means free MMS and SMS will work with all your friends.

GROUP CHATTING - Textfree is perfect for group messaging. You can create groups, leave groups, add participants and let everyone be part of the conversation with real SMS messages (or free MMS).

TURN ANY DEVICE INTO A PHONE - Textfree can turn your desktop, tablet or other Android devices into a phone that can send free SMS.

SAY IT WITH STICKERS - With an endless selection of stickers (seriously, there are millions) you can search and share fun stickers with all your friends.
