  • It's goood

    by Nah chanced

    It a good app bit sometimes the text doesn't come to the people fast I wish they can fix that and they should make it look like an iPhone iMessage looking when u go to the conversation

  • Best Texting/Calling App Out There

    by ShadowWolf48

    wish sending photos would he less complicated, fix that and u get a fifth star

  • Emojis

    by Stsnell

    The ONLY thing i dislike is that it can't send emojis.

  • Best text app

    by Anthony_18

    Get it!! Its really worth it :)

  • Okay

    by Colleen Morgan

    It's a great app first of all! But it takes a while to download photos to see them. And when I get a text message I have to wait for a while before it loads up

  • One thing!!!

    by LalaLAND12378

    I wish you could send texts from this app without wifi like if you weren't home or out to dinner or something!! Like a REAL phone!!!

  • Best app ever

    by Nisleydis

    Good thank you for this app

  • its okay-.-buuuut

    by kayla_noel07

    it should really let people use emojis!!!

  • I like this but....

    by Minepro159

    I don't like that you actually have to be in the app to receive calls. Another thing is that you don't hear the call or text if you are in another game or app. But over all its a pretty good app.

  • Emojis!!!!!

    by Sokenwet

    This app would be great if you could send emojis

  • Problem

    by Offline online pro.

    Bug fix. I always read my messages but it still says that I haven't read 12 of them, fix it please! Also sometimes it sends me messages from 3 days ago that I have read it already, fix it please!

  • Pinger Textfree

    by The Lil Lupe

    I do not get notifications! When I get a messages.

  • Text

    by Sassypants1902

    I love it my iPod is now a phone

  • Receive/send pics from number not email??

    by Lexi867

    I Love this app. The ONLY thing that would make this app perfect is being able to send pics and receive them through your number instead of through the email (@pinger.) because it makes it difficult with pictures.

  • Love it

    by cobalt connor

    Great icon love it

  • Dissapointed

    by Khjcydofjvhc

    I like this app but even with the new update i still cant send pics

    by michellerssss24

  • Icon

    by Ruth1heart

    I like the old icon better to be honest. But oh well

  • Works great!!

    by Aknetter02

    All the other apps I tried to make my iPod a phone would not work and the caller could not hear me! This app works great and I am really happy with the results!!!

  • Hate the new version

    by DecemberM

    I can't delete my chat threads. So irritating. I don't like the new version. The list of texts no longer goes to landscape and I hate where the call button is! I keep accidentally calling people and I'm wasting minutes.

  • New area code (737)

    by lil_ant02

    I love this app, have used it for years now, but here in the central Austin Texas area we had to add a new area code because of our constant growth, and I now have friends who have this area code and my app doesn't recognize their number as an area number...pleeeeeeease fix this thank you!!!


    by Trixx12345

    Love the app! Very useful, but NEEDS NEEDS NEEDS a PASSCODE LOCK!!!! Please Pinger add this feature.. With that, the app becomes worth 100 stars..lol

    by roxanaroxi

    When is international calling going to be available???

  • Great app

    by Sterling_12

    Love this app just wish u could get pics from phones

  • Piece of garbage

    by SendMeLies

    Trash app. Had been using it over 2 years. Suddenly start crashing on me as I try to read texts. I chose to upgrade to one of the pinger apps, it forgets my login info and locks me out. When I finally login, all my history was erased. Way to go. I'm getting another number. Call quality is crap, and it is not even reliable to text? DELETED.

  • Ringtones

    by brennahahaha

    I love this app and have been using it for 3 years now and I only have one major complaint. The selection of ringtones is good just weird. You can get animal sound and human body sounds but there is not a good selection of regular notification noises. I will give this app a 5 star rating when Apple notification tones Are available in the app


    by Ambergur1

    Plz make this available on play store not just App Store !!!!! I would lik this app way more then. THANK YOU !

  • Dont get it

    by CommunicateOfficialReview

    Cant text anyone unless theyre in Your contacts. Crashes. Cant be in a group message. No emojis. Horrible connection during calls.

  • Liars

    by B Stadiem

    They never deliver on the minutes they offer for their BS offers. They owe me hundreds of minutes and don't care at all.

  • nO

    by StylinsonIsReal

    I can't see my missed calls and recent text messages. I got a message from a wrong number and I wanted to text back but the message just disappeared :[

  • Improvement

    by ThisGirl4442

    It'd be really nice if there was an update that would able the use of the cool little emotion dudes! Other then that, this app is very dependable!

  • Can't hear
