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

Notifications (7.4)
10/21/2014 6:54:00 AM 3/5 By Fred Rated
Some texts are not being received through notifications. Also the app crashes at transition from notifications to opening the app, which also makes it difficult to answer a phone call. Speaking of "phones calls", the app doesn't ring for me when I'm receiving a call. It only makes the notification sound only. Smh, most of this has been an issue for a long while now.

Not to many problems. I use it all the time. As long as you got s good wi/FI connection you shouldn't have any trouble using this app. Try textfree ex too. That's just as good.

Apps going down hill. (7.3.4)
10/16/2014 6:21:00 AM 2/5 By Emoji-less and Data-less
This app takes up wayyy too much data! I'll refresh it twice and it takes up 8MB. I don't know what happened but this isn't how much it used to take up! And I can even send emojis on it! This app used to be convenient, but I guess it's now time to look for other alternative texting apps.

There seems to be an update released on the 13th of October, however at each attempt to update the app, a pop up claims "The item you wish to purchase is no longer available". What does this mean?

Great app (7.3.4)

Love this app (7.3.4)
10/15/2014 3:56:00 AM 5/5 By rainidayz
But when I go to update to this new version optimized for iOS 8, it says the item I'm trying to buy can no longer be purchased. I can still use the app and it says it updated on the app itself, but it remains in the update section of the App Store as if it needs to be updated. I don't know what that's about but you should probably fix it.

zero stars if could (7.3.4)
10/15/2014 3:54:00 AM 1/5 By shania furbert

what's the point of having an update when the app is no longer available?

Will not update! (7.3.4)
10/15/2014 1:52:00 AM 1/5 By Marquardt51
I'm showing Pinger to update as 10/13/2014 but everytime I hit "update" it says item is no longer available in the iTunes Store. So, what's that all about?

Won't update (7.3.4)
10/15/2014 1:43:00 AM 1/5 By Frank4969
States it's optimized for ios8 yet says no longer for sale. Won't update.

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)
10/2/2014 3:37:00 AM 2/5 By Ercell Granados
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)
10/1/2014 2:53:00 PM 5/5 By mr.trent.marshall
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.

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)
9/27/2014 8:05:00 PM 4/5 By Smiley face 2014
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)

I like this app very much but I hate it when it crashes or doesn't show me what my friends are saying in the text sometimes all I see is this "***" I hate you!!!!
