Added a Refresh button to quickly sync up your conversations. Added resend option for messages sent offline. Improved message delivery. A lot of bug fixes and stability improvement. 

TextNow gives you completely free and unlimited texting directly from your computer! This app helps you stay instantly connected to your friends and family across USA and Canada.

When you sign up, you are assigned a dedicated phone number with the area code of your choosing. You can use this number to send and receive unlimited texts within USA and Canada. You can also send and receive picture messages or create texting groups! Your friends and family don't need to have TextNow, it works just like a normal phone.

This app is beautifully and simply designed and will integrate directly with your Windows contacts.

TextNow is also available on the web at TextNow.com. Take your phone number with you, and your messages will seamlessly synchronize!

    Its a great app but I can't call anyone on it and I wish you didn't have to use WiFi to use this app because I don't always have WiFi around me and it doesn't show if the person seen your text other than that a perfect app.
