App Reviews

  • False advertising by VZW: BEWARE

    By ahung1212121212
    Setup correctly on compatible devices, the Message+ app can only receive calls on devices that originally were designed to make calls in the first place. What does this mean? Basically, unless you’re using Message+ on a calling-enabled smart watch or just another smart phone, you cannot expect to receive incoming calls on your device in a reliable manner. In fact, the only times you will receive calls in the Message+ app on a non-calling enabled device (such as iPads, Galaxy Tabs, or anything that isn’t a phone or latest-gen smart watch by Apple or Samsung) is if you literally have the Message+ app open and running as the primary app all the time. No closing the app, or letting it run in the background, and definitely no locking your device or closing the Smart Cover. So for anyone that wishes to use the Message+ app on a non-calling enabled device to be able to receive calls at any time, don’t do it. It does not work. Do not expect VZW to change this at any point in the near future.
  • Pretty Cool

    By DJ WOZ!
    This is a pretty neat app initially and has some awesome features. So far I have run into a couple problems with it already and I haven't had it more than 24 hours yet.. it won't let me load my info into the 911 response for some just tells me to try later (and I don't think I have to go into details at why that is important that the feature needs to work). I've also tried the auto reply feature, however it for some reason won't let me turn it on after I followed all the directions. Also, I don't know if I'm missing something but I wish there was an option to be able to turn the alerts off because I don't want it on at all times and don't like getting 2 alerts every time I get a new text message. Overall..after some updates have been made I think this will be a very handy app!
  • Really Verizon?

    By Pink gavel
    Tell me again how long you've been around? 🤔 Those of us who didn't have Verizon as our service provider had to download your app to receive a short video from a vacation with friends - per directions from the Verizon user's phone❗️ At first a small inconvenience 🙄considering all of the other phone providers were compatible, since the non Verizon phones 📱 were sending media back and forth all week. Okay- App downloaded and video was sent, received..... 😏next you would save it to your gallery or share it in your social media or with family... nope😩. Trying to save it, it says "report spam" or "delete" are your choices. Verizon fix this!😠This does not make me want you as my service provider 😑quite the opposite. 1. You cannot save the media from your app, 2. now every time you open the app it downloads the video again and again. What a miserable experience and disappointment with the Verizon message app. 👎👎👎👎👎
  • Un-installing after 2+ years of utilization.

    By Maestro Vnasdale
    The last two updates have really brought this app back in time. It no longer synchronizes correctly between products that have the same version of this app with the same user account installed. There is no reason in today's day and age that I would have to sort through three different devices in order to review a complete previous conversation. I thought the whole idea was, 'One app with one service for all your devices.'??? One minute it's telling me that it requires the Verizon cloud while at the same moment in time I am receiving emails from Verizon telling me that the Verizon cloud is ceasing to exist. After installing the newest version on a brand new device straight out of the box I am mediately started getting error messages telling me that the VIP future would not be functional or available to me. Enough typing, time to uninstall!
  • Only works intermittently on iPhone 6S

    By Dreu-X
    I have an iPhone 6S and it’s hit or miss as to weather or not I get a notification that I’ve received a msg. Sometimes the msgs don’t even come through at all. To improve functionality, the developers suggest shutting off iMessage because the formatting isn’t compatible with this app. Shutting off iMessage causes issues communicating with other iDevices. This becomes a real problem if you have children who can only msg via WiFi. Besides that, the design is simple. A bit lacking in the navigation department, however. It has miner customization capabilities that are nicer to look at than the standard iMessage. Could be a decent app if the bugs were worked out. Seeing as there haven’t been any updates in the past 7 months, though, I’m not holding out for fixes any time soon.
  • Loved it until IOS 12 update

    By TKP25
    Worked great until the IOS 12 update several days ago. Now when starting it up it just sits at “waiting for network” and never connects. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app several times and have been looking for an update to the app but nothing yet. I am assuming the issue is with the app since every other app works great on my iPad except this app. Please update the app to fix this issue. I see others on the Verizon message board reporting the same exact thing. Edit: an app update came out today and has fixed my issues after IOS 12. App is working well again for me on my iPad pulling in. Y text messages from my galaxy phone.
  • Glitchy!!!!!

    By NC2577
    Don’t believe any Verizon tech who tells you this is the solution to enable texting across Apple/non-Apple devices. Got this app to be able to text from both my Google phone and Apple devices. Messaging on the Apple devices is erratic—sometimes they come through, sometimes they don’t. Likewise for group messaging, sometimes secondary recipients receive the message, sometimes they don’t. Sometimes messages are delivered instantly, sometimes they are sent days later. The Verizon tech assured me it worked “perfectly”across his devices, so I brought in mine, displayed the non-matching conversation chains, and he checked all settings with no success before referring the problem to Verizon. Three days later, I received the official response from Verizon...a stock instructional video on how to improve call reception and clarity. Total fail.
  • An awesome app for a text tool... don’t be a tool, get this ASAP

    By jfrugoli
    Verizon text app!!! Smoken app!! If your smart, you will have discovered the ability to schedule text to others. Most of the time text go out just when you hit send, that’s a good thing, except when it’s over seas and there is a serious time difference. Wouldn’t you like to be cool and deliver the text with some respect to the person on the other end !!! That’s such an awesome thing to do!!! With this app, this feature is just one of many really awesome tricks, you can do...... combined features can make you stand out like a god!!!!
  • Good for texting on Non-phone devices

    By Reno DM
    Texting seems to work fairly well on my iPad, but the integrated calling telephone service suddenly stopped working about a month ago. Verizon keeps writing technical service tickets to work on resolving this, but has not fixed it yet. The worst part of the calling feature not working is the repeated error messages that pop up several times a day saying calling can't be activated now. I am not event trying to activate calling and the error messages appear. Was much better app 2 months ago. Text messages don't alway synchronize with phone. This has been true with all versions in past 6 months that I have been using the app.
  • A Sufficient App. 5/5

    By Insomniac257
    TL;DR: All around, Message+ does what its supposed to do: send and receive messages, sync texts, maybe place a phone call. 5/5 I was hesitant to download b/c of the numerous reviews that noted issues concerning syncing across different devices/platforms. As of 8/3 -- for me, at least -- such a problem appears to not be an issue. I use Message+ on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and now this iPad Pro 10.5 (which I am using, atm, to write this review), and both devices are syncing wonderfully. One can even make phone calls using this app., but I have yet to test this out. I have no complaints.
