love the app. but i think it needs the ios7 look, people should be able to
send pictures to the number not
the email, and i think it would be cool if there was something in the app that tells you how many text messages you've sent monthly.

I really like this app. When my phone broke, I could still keep in touch with my friends. But when my phone got fixed, I didn't use this app as much and after 30 days, my # went to someone else and I had to get a new one. If they could extend the time to 60 days that would be awesome.

I have used this app for YEARS and loved it's ease of use and privacy, but tr last eat updates changed the ads from unobtrusive banner ads that I don't mind to these ungodly things that pop up after you send a text and you have to click out each time. Multiply this by the hundreds of texts a day and it becomes very tedious, PLEASE change it back to banner ads, I don't want to have to can this app.
My texts arent going through? (1.5.5)

Half the texts i send dont even get received. It works fine on the Pinger website but while on this app, it messes up. Also when you are texting someone with multiple Pinger numbers all under one name, you dont get to choose which number to send. loved the original textfree app though!

Confused about "Upgrade" to TextFree EX (1.5.5)
11/29/2013 7:09:00 PM
2/5 By Ambiverbal
I received a notice in-app that I should "upgrade" to TextFree EX. Huh?
Upgrades don't usually revert to an old app name. Nor do they leave the outdated (i.e., inferior) app standing on the phone.
I don't know whether to delete the Pinger EX app. Both TextFree & Pinger use the same phone number. However, the TF app does not retain my old texts or contacts.
Are you trying to make this so confusing we won't use it?

Honestly, I really don't like Pinger any more. Why does my ringtone continue ringing after I answer a call, and why does entering the app from a notification give me a blank screen? Plus, the app needs a more mature look. Update to iOS 7, please.
Update ios 7 keyboard and new look! (1.5.5)
