Hello Jacks and Jills,
I was perusing the Chrome Web Store when I came across an interesting extension. The extension I came across is called TextNow.
Here is what the extension offers from the site:
Get your own dedicated phone number to send and receive real unlimited texts, for free.Highlights: – Get your very own dedicated phone number – Send & receive unlimited texts, for free! – Real texting: text ALL your friends, on any device and any carrier – Take your phone number and texts anywhere – all messages seamlessly synchronize between TextNow.com and your Android or iOS device.
The extension has a four out of five rating. I haven’t tried it myself but my research shows that it is legit. However the reviews of the app do reveal a few issues.
- Some texts show up an hour or so late. (2014)
- You can’t send pictures.(2013)
- Some people have issues with the app loading. (2013)
- Some people have issues with the app sending messages. (2013)
