This app is atrocious! 😡 When your inmate calls, you have to open the app, click around everywhere until everything starts populating correct amounts and names and such, then you MIGHT get to answer the call. That's a good day. Bad days include calls not popping up but you feeling it vibrate or hear it ring. I mate not being able to call out to you for no reason. There are times it shows I'm online and they call but I never am, so it causes inconvenience in schedules. Also skips and eats your $

Oh my Lord this app is awful. First of all, the inmate's voice plays from the small speaker that you're supposed to put your phone up to during a call, not the regular speaker that allows you to hear a person and see their face at the same time. And then most of the time he can't hear me at all! I've tried my Bluetooth headset and 2 different speakers.... 75% of the time he gets no sound on his end. But we still get charged. Video messages i receive are zoomed in like 4x. HATE THIS APP.

Absolutely awful. Difficult to navigate. Almost impossible to go through the tutorials. User authentication is something just shy of what would be required to visit the NORAD command center during DEFCON 2. For no apparent reason. Have had very SERIOUS issues. Volume was so low I could not hear during several phone calls. I had to put the phone to my ear to hear anything, and was terminated for not having my face in the.video. Yeah. Terminated before I could get crucial legal information.
