    I loved it on my iPhone, but with windows, it wont let me answer my calls. I got this app for me and my dad to be able to contact each other , but now that I switched phones, all we can do is text. Please update it. Thanks.

    Won't load at all sometimes. Also opens then instantly closes. Plus texts come in really late.

    0 stars!Everybody sounds like a robot. And call ARE NOT FREE! FREE MEANS FREE. And phone does not tell me I'm receiving a call until they have hung-up and it doesn't tell me at all that I have received a message.
