  • Best

    by Navin Patel

    It's best Tango was my first video calling system

  • Lost access to old profile

    by PhotoMav3n

    I like the app but I lost access to my old profile after reinstalling the app on my iPhone. I'm using the same number/email account. I will give it 5 stars when i am able to uninstall and reinstall the app on multiple devices without losing access.

  • Great tech, substandard UX

    by Arthas702

    This is good stuff. Functionalities are solid, especially video call. UX is horrible. My advise: fire all your UX people and get pros on it. Then you can dominate the market.

  • tango is rocks

    by superstar4390

    Tango rocks because you can text video and call people on there if you do not have a phone.I like it because you can listen to music also . you can play games and talk with you friend at the same time.That is so so cool to me.If they say tango is but they are so so wrong it is awsome then any other texting app the have on a device

  • Takes 2 to Tango

    by Chicago transplant 1012

    Amazing, though on occasion iffy, video calls. I use it a lot to chat with friends in the UK and the reception is amazing. There are times when the calls don't go through but that is short term and infrequent. Get it!!

  • Actualización para iPhone

    by La Bratz

    Es muy buena app para uno comunicarse, pero creo que para iPhone esta teniendo unos problemas al subir foto, deben hacer una actualización. Me pasa mucho cuando subo una foto, que posteo y cuando la busco no esta.

  • Great app but has glitches


    It's a great app though at times the video freezes or you can't hear each other speaking.

    by Goolygirl

    This has being going on for two weeks now.Every time I try to open the app it just shuts down at the tango loading screen. Please fix this.

  • Not good

    by Chartab

    I have been using this app on iOS 7 and it's not what I expected. I'd heard a lot of compliment on tango but it's not good app at all ... At least I think you have to re-match it with iOS 7 again ...

    الله يعطيكم العافية على هذى البرنامج

  • Stop updating!

    by BostonStaxXx

    I've had tango for about two years I got it as soon as I heard you didn't need wifi. Each update its gotten worse. I still have an iPhone four now my friends and family can't contact me because apparently I'm too popular and it cost money to talk to popular people. I wish I could get on and fix that but on an older model like mine tango either doesn't open or freezes the phone.

  • Fenomenal

    by Rocío87

    Me encanta esta aplicación! Puedo hacer video llamadas para ver a mi familia que esta lejos y poder sentirlos cerca!

  • Serious problems

    by 45Skyler89

    It could be a great app to have when someone doesn't have minutes on their phone, but it has serious issues. Sometimes it won't show me the texts, let me reply, or even, like what happened just now, it will completely wipe out my texts and pictures and force me to log in again! Then it won't send anything! I'm very frustrated with it.

  • Great, But Not Perfect, Yet

    by ROEBO

    I have several comments to reflect my concerns: First, at times the Tango program freezes and the screen goes black when I'm receiving calls. At that point, I have no way of answering the call. Second, I hate that you went back into my contacts and dumped all my contacts, including business contacts, contacts with only email addresses and landline numbers. In all cases, there were double entries for each contact. This move and update was uncalled for and caused me extra work to clean it up so that my contact reflected what was originally in Tango. I am still tackling that problem. What on earth were you attempting to accomplish? On top of that grand mess, I saw no instructions on how to understand what you had intended. It seems like you just did what you wanted to do. That, I did not like. Please fix that bug and don't do that again, unless you ask first by giving me that option to make those changes to my contact list. Because of not knowing the intent of the change, Many of my contacts I deleted thinking I had deleted the correct one, to soon find out I had no way of returning them to the Tango menu. However, they still remained in my phone original contacts, but I had no way of getting them back into my Tango menu. How do I correct that issue? Third: you gave me no option to remove unwanted pictures of people whom I know and the picture assigned to them is not the correct person. Please fix that bug by providing an option to delete that picture or that person. Currently, I can only block or report that person. Fourth: the refresh button for my Tango contacts is not working. Please fix that bug to refresh. Whenever there are changes to my contact list, I need the option for the program to go back to my original contact list and update the information I want to be added to Tango. I cannot refresh the deleted contacts that were put into Tango with the double entries. How do I get those deleted contacts back into Tango by simply refreshing the menu refresh button? Fifth: there is too much time delay in adding new contacts. Often times we assume the addition did not go through. Pls fix the response time to see that the addition was successful. Sixth: as I write this review, the keyboard is covering the space I am typing in. Therefore, I have to constantly close the keyboard to see what is being typed. Please fix that bug so that the page, as I near the bottom of my typing, remains visible. Lastly and as stated previously, Tango is great and I love it. However, the bug fixes for my concerns will definitely encourage me to rate you higher than a simple 3 once these concerns have been addressed.

  • Tango is good app.

    by Basba2003

    Not bad it is not clear

  • Why can't I even get in

    by Themonsterzz

    The app got erase and I redownloaded it now I can't even sign in at all what is goin on with this

  • I can't even use it.

    by DrawBetterThanYou

    I have a iPhone 5s and for some odd reason I can't even verify my account because they just never sent my my verification code so I can't do diddly squat. This app is essentially a waste of space if I can't use it.

  • Mi mejor programa

    by Santosjuan


  • I felt unsafe

    by Paparkermonte

    This app is a lil creepy. I uploaded a pic and started getting all these messages for ppl I didn't know. I thought only ppl you invite would be able to send you message and communicate with you. I couldn't figure out what the icon were meant to do, so I was accidentally sending responses to these ppl who was messaging me. I figured out how to make my profile private but I still felt like these strangers could see me. I ended up deleting the app and I don't like the fact you have to put your phone number in to register. It gave me a bad feeling bc I'm not into talking to strange ppl on site like this

  • 4 Stars

    by P1nk3

    Great App but needs more games

  • Love!!!

    by ShannonHayes

    The reason it get four as apposed to five is because it's a little hard to use and we should be able to post videos.

  • Excellent app

    by Dentist00100

    This application connects people together and simply I like it

  • Good app

    by shortazzazn

  • buisness owner/stylist

    by Deana Doulgerakis

    Found out i was terminated without probable cause. recieved many innapropriate pictures but after blocking them, i was the one accused. Unable to use chat/message at all.

    by Trapp444

    Would be 5 stars if it didn't keep force closing when I go to open the app(iphone4)

  • What is this?

    by What..tha heck

    I liked this app until today. My bf was sharing photos to me and a random photo appeared on one of the photos, he did not see it only I did and so I told him to go look at picture 12, on his screen it was the original picture but on mines it was this old man sitting by a computer, it was super creepy I hope nothing is wrong.

  • megusta

    by Mexchiko

    conoses muchas jainas

  • Poor quality

    by Fred's Texas

    Each time I have tried to use this app with both 3G (in very good service) or with high speed internet it could never work very well. Each time both the audio and video was sparse at best. To top it off, it's always trying to get me to play a game or download music. This isn't Facebook, Twitter, ITunes or anything like that. They should just build the app for video calling and make sure that it works great.

  • Terrible upgrade

    by Djmo20

    My photo galilee is missing, I liked the fact that the friends I was sharing photos with had there separate gallery, and I don't care for the game icon on my chat screen.

  • Help!!!

    by Ghada G.

  • Me gusta mucho la aplicación

    by Chaquecco

    Me gusta tango me sirve para ver a mi familia en México !!!


    by George salas

    This app is amazing.. But until you bring back the photo gallery where you can quickly see all the photos you've exchanged with your friends and family my rating will be one star.. Seems like you guys downgraded instead of upgraded with this update .. Also the games during video chat have been limited.. What the heck is your definition of an update?!

  • Frustrating

    by goals111

    Unreliable and poor execution.

  • Disappointed

    by Jannet88

    I've used tango for years now and I loved how useful it was to communicate with my long distance boyfriend. However, for the past 3 days now he is not able to hear me anymore. I've tried updating, deleting and reinstalling but nothing works. He hears me for the first 2 seconds and then all goes blank. There's not even a settings that I can use to check whether it's muted :(. Sad!!

  • Used to be superb !!

    by Pabloou

    I use this app a lot. Helps me to keep ij touch with my loved ones but since aprox. Jan 26/14 i cant hear or be heard. Now my experience with the app is awful and hopeless; It crashes a lot also, i hope this problem get a fix quickly because is an app with an incredible potencial....
