Comments and Ratings for Pinger EX: Free Text + Calls with Textfree

Advertisement scam (7.3.4)
10/3/2014 5:39:00 AM 1/5 By Fototico
All the apps by pinger for their texting service, which includes the textfree, textfree voice, and all the pinger apps, are junk. They went from bad to worst when it comes to advertising. I paid for a year to remove the ads and I still received texts advertising dumb games. Now that my year is up, I'm getting ads every few minutes or anytime I open the app. Also, every time you send a text a half page ad pops up. Not only did I paid to hide the ads, I purchased their paid pinger messenger versions and I still had the problem. Even when I used the paid app version and the hide ads subscription, the ads kept coming. At least not as frequently as now. I've been testing another app, Text+ and Text+ Gold to replace this junk and so far I like it, but there are other apps that I'm about to start testing. I've had enough with advertisement even when I paid to remove them. I e-mailed the developer about it and I never heard from them. So very shortly I'll be kicking them to the curve.

Needs an update purchase button (7.3.4)

I bought the hide ads and I got a new iPod and I don't want to have to buy it again

Very good app (7.3.4)

This is a great calling app especially if you hate phone bills

After Delay, Support Was Very Helpful (7.3.4)

I have been a Pinger/Textfree user for upwards of four years. During that time, I have never owned a phone, instead opting to use a combination of Pinger and Google Voice on an iPod Touch. I cannot imagine how much cash I have saved thanks to the powerful functionality this app provides: a unique phone number and free unlimited texting to any SMS provider. This combined with widely available Wi-Fi in my area meant that purchasing a phone was redundant. Great app, 5/5 stars! Recently I re-purchased the "Hide Ads" upgrade for $6 or something marginal like that. Unfortunately, it failed to download. Fine, I'll download it later. Well, it turns out there is no "restore purchases" button or anything of the sort. And I can't even re-re-purchase the upgrade because Pinger remembers that I've already purchased it. EDIT: After much delay, Pinger support has solved this issue for me. They were very helpful and understanding, once I got in touch with them. I hope that in a future update, the Pinger team will implement a "restore purchases" option or otherwise prevent this issue from happening.

A new update is needed (7.3.4)

Pretty good app works well. Only one problem when setting a specific sound for a person it doesn't work it puts the same tone for everyone

Good app (7.3.4)

This app works really well for the most part. I love that I can call on it because I only have an iPod touch but you have to have complete WiFi connection and it still doesn't always work well. And you can't send pictures without the other person having to send it to another account. Big hassle! But for the most part it woks really well. :) good app.

Awesome (7.3.4)

Functional-nothing to write home about (7.3.4)

The basic text function and the ability to send pictures is good. The problem is reliability. Some times you don't get notices that you have a text and sometimes you won't get it for hours later. This doesn't happen frequently, but the fact that it does is worth noting. The ability to talk is not worth discussing because there are too many factors that affect the ability or quality of the call; ie: your wifi signal, their signal, if either party is in motion. This is an okay app, but don't rely on it too much.

WHO IS THIS!? (7.3.4)
9/21/2014 2:47:00 PM 1/5 By Katie Wires
I started getting texts from a random number and they just kept coming in. after awhile, I realized I was getting my neighbor's text messages! I don't want to read their conversation! I am unable to even block this number. this is ridiculous.

I absolutely love the app. I use it all the time but ever since i got the iOS 8 update the app is slow and crashes every few minutes. Its to the point where it won't even open at all. Please fix this.

9/18/2014 6:26:00 AM 3/5 By Deneeeessi
You need to make the messages longer and be able to see it. I upgraded to iOS 8 and I can't see part of the message I send. PLEASE FIX IT ASAP!

I can't see emojis in my text messages nor can others see my emojis. Other than that, love the app ☺

Awful! (7.3.4)
9/9/2014 9:57:00 AM 2/5 By AnnieTheGr8
The call quality is always poor. The calls are always dropping. There's always echoes. This app used to be decent but I really don't know what happened. I think you guys are fixing things that don't need to be fixed instead of working on what's actually wrong with it

It works (7.3.4)
9/9/2014 6:04:00 AM 5/5 By Bullridur
