  • by Miranda 1/28/2015
    I kinda like this. But I don't get notified when I get a text, until hours later. I have to keep the app open and refresh it half the time and then I hardly get messages or mine never send. Until this problem is fixed my rate is 2 star.

    Needs to be faster and smoother.

    The first text you send anyone goes out doubled. They will get the message twice.
