Mediocre at best from my experience. When or if it works it's a solid app but about 50% of the time the message doesn't send or is received. The other 75% of the time is a battle between keeping it open without it quiting on its own and trying to open the messages without it going back to the inbox and then quitting. The annoying messages you receive that remind you that it needs to be used or the numbers will be deleted works absolutely fine though.

great in a pinch if you're in between your primary phone carrier payments, and/or you need an incognito number, however when coerced to subscribe to "text PLUS" their claim is no more ad's (true) and verification texts will then be allowed/accepted (FALSE). That in and of itself is beyond frustrating for reasons that; it was the sole purpose of my commitment (verification msgs), and I am still in the same position seeking a resolution - $10 + monthly subscription. CANCELED. Don't bother buying.

I have used this app for about 5 years, almost entirely for texting. However, on occasion I do you the app to make or take phone calls. Phone calls are delayed and have significant echoing, as with most wifi calling apps. Also, whenever I'm done with the call,, it is necessary to "Force Stop" the app in order to get any audio from my phone. This happens every time and can also be corrected by restarting the phone, but the force stop is much faster.
