    3 stars. I don't get text alerts as soon as I get them. Get your act together. Pretty soon I'm going to get rid of my windows phone and get a iPhone. Since their apps are first priority on getting updates and every one else get 2nd rate updates and apps

    I have loved and used this app since I had my Windows phone 7. I love the new calling feature, just wish I could actually earn credits! I'm an avid user of this app, and would be happy if I could use some of the new features! Other than that I love it! Also, I wish there was a way to earn the ads going away. They kinda take up most of the screen. And, just as a suggestion, the logo on the main menu where all of a users threads are would look alot better if it was smaller. Again, I still love this app 😍 if you need a texting app to get out of a rut use this one!

    I think that it's a cool app but I can't earn or buy credits and I didn't know that the credits were going to get used up so quickly need to be able to use app to the fullest because I really like it 😊

    This app force closes at least 10-15 times in a row... At least 5-6 different times a day. HORRIBLE! Needs a good update!!!!
