TextMe is a free social and communication app developed by TextMe, Inc. It enables its users to immediately send text, voice, photos and video messages, and make video-conferencing calls as much as you want by using only Wi-Fi or mobile data. Users can send free unlimited messages and calls to any phone in the U.S., Canada and other 40 countries around the world. All the features that users expect from an instant messaging client can be found here. Users can create group chats with friends, send and receive various messages, and use emojis and stickers. Users can also customize exclusive text signatures, call ringtones, personalized backgrounds and wallpapers. In addition, since the app uses virtual burner phone numbers, it is difficult to be traced, which greatly protects users’ privacy.
On iOS AppStore, TextMe’s rating is 4.7 out of 5.0, with 403,000 user reviews. On Google Play, its rating is 4.2 out of 5.0, with 485,949 user reviews and more than 10,000,000 installs. On Amazon, its rating is 3.3 out of 5.0, with 19,200 user reviews.
TextMe has attracted a huge number of users to install and communicate with friends and colleagues. The rating of this app is fairly good on iOS AppStore, but it is not good enough on Google Play and Amazon, which means that, although the app is a nice communication and IM service client, it still has a lot of room for improvement, especially in terms of improving performance and providing quality services to its users. Last but not least, it is also worth mentioning that it ranks No. 19 in Category-Social Networking on iOS AppStore.
Such social networking apps focus more on the stability and timeliness of sending and receiving messages, so the TextMe team pays more attention to fixing some bugs that may affect the user experience and improving the performance of the app.
TextMe has great compatibility: not only is it compatible with other SMS apps like Google Voice, Talkatone, TextNow and TextFree, but it supports mobile, tablet and web access, which makes it more convenient for users to communicate. Even if you lose your phone, you can log into your account on your computer, tablet or other phone and communicate as usual.
What makes TextMe stand out from the crowd of social networking apps is its support for users to get multiple numbers. Users can easily get multiple numbers and manage them in one account. Thus, users can use different numbers to contact different groups of people and therefore keep their information safe.
- The phone numbers provided by this app can also work in other apps that require verification of phone numbers.
- The app is very easy to use and users can choose their own number from about 4 options.
- Users can earn free credits within the app to make free calls.
- The app contains plenty of intrusive ads that are too much to bear with.
- There is a character limit for texting in this app, which is somewhat inconvenient.
