TEXTNOW 4.4 IS HERE AND IS BETTER THAN EVER
TextNow is a free application for your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad that is available for download from the Apple iTunes store. With our latest version, we’ve fixed some of those pesky bugs that have been laying around as well as included some very exciting enhancements.
FREE VOICE CALLING
First off, we are very proud to announce FREE VOICE CALLING for all iOS devices! Beginning this week, all TextNow users will be granted access to TextNow+Voice (previously $29.99/Year) with absolutely no need to upgrade.
You’re likely wondering how we can provide this service at no cost. Well, the first thing we’ve done is expand our TextNow credit system to give users the access to thousands of new credit earning options. For example, signing up for Netflix earns a user 817 credits while watching a short 15-second video earns them between 3 and 10 credits. Every credit earned counts as one minute towards a user’s calling account and most of the offers cost absolutely nothing to participate in. Initially implemented to give users free access to additional TextNow enhancements, the credit system has seen incredible success and will now give everyone the ability to make free phone calls, from their real phone number. Don’t want to build up credits before hand, no problem, users can also simply place a call, watch an advertisement and then instantly be connected.
When you first login to TextNow 4.4, you will notice that we’ve improved the look and feel of the application.
A new name, cleaner and crisper icons and a more intuitive way to navigate around. Don’t worry though, we haven’t changed how easy it is to stay in contact with your friends and family and all of your conversations will be listed for you as they were before.
Need to make a call? Simply click the telephone or dialer icon at the top of the screen. Need to send out an important Text Message to your buddies to hook up for coffee? That’s easy! Just click on the text bubble. Option icons along the bottom of the main screen remain relatively the same. A single click to review application options, your profile details, in-app store and help and support.
Although voice calling isn’t necessarily something new for TextNow, it’s been improved in TextNow 4.4, and it’s now also available on your iPad!
You can now use your iPad or iPad 2 to make and receive phone calls the same way that you’re used to on your iPhone or iPod Touch. We’ve also taken the time to upgrade our dialer to make it that much easier for you to quickly and easily make those important calls.
Have you found yourself low on minutes and not able to make any calls? With TextNow 4.4 we’ve introduced a new way to earn credits to purchased minutes. You can simply watch short videos that earn you credits for free. Credits can be used for calling minutes, remove ads or enhance your TextNow experience with sound packs or wallpaper!
Using TextNow on multiple devices? Although not new in TextNow 4.4, we wanted to you remind you of something very handy if you use multiple devices. Signing in with the same TextNow account on multiple devices gives you a synchronized view of all of your conversations. Both incoming and outgoing messages appear on all of your devices so you can always switch from one to the other without a problem.
