This app will make your conversations turn into a revolving door of ideas, apologies, explanations, and eventually confusion. If this app could be more dysfunctional, I would be amazed. Sending texts is not bad if you don't mind a long delay. If you want to send photos then you would be better off sending it via the USPS. Altogether this app has been able to send texts *AWESOME* but texting or messaging through this app takes me back to the early 90's.

Oooooohhh man this suck!!! This thing doesn't even pretend to do anything but piss you off and not work!!! I've been working on it for hours, everything is right but you click on one of the prompts and it kicks you off. I've had to change all mt passwords like 10 F#$%ing times. It shows I'm connected but what I touch anything it kicks me off and says "to make sure that you phone and your PC are connected to the same wi-fi!!! Absolutely garbage, what a waste of time and money

It frequently disconnects and tells me that the computer is not connected to the phone and that I should turn both of them on. They ARE both on. Sometimes I can break the connection and make the computer unknown to the phone and start over and that might work or sometimes it might not. I can try it again at a later time and it does. When this app works, it's very convenient but it only works about 70% of the time.
