I've been using this app for a long time across various devices and wish I could rate it higher. What stops me is lately this app has been causing severe battery life and temperature issues. My battery will drain rapidly when I have the app open, in some cases I can literally watch it drop 10-20% in seconds, which may be that device since it's not on the rest. If the app is open, even in the background, my devices will become very warm, sometimes uncomfortable to hold.

Worst app ever. I can not believe I can't get a Verification code even when using the Windows version of this app (which in their support section it says you're able to). I can't upgrade because I have "no Wi-Fi or service" even though I'm connected to my wi-fi and staring at it as I'm doing it. Been like this for months now it's ridiculous the amount of hurdles you have to go through to keep your number.

Hey there, if you have an active TextFree Plus subscription and you still aren’t receiving codes please check with the institution you are trying to receive the code from if you allow verification codes (not all do). If the institution allows it and you're still having issues, please email us at reviews@pinger.com.

Everytime you end a phone call or exit a text convo, an ad vid pops up. Phone calls dropped almost every time after usually anywhere from a few seconds to a couple min. It tells you when you have a confirmation code texted to you but wont let you read it without paying an exhorbetant price. Oftentimes, it doesnt ring at all or only vibrates 1 time when you get a call, no matter what your volume settings are set as. After talking, YouTube is quiet unless I go to settings and force close Text Free
