wow this is cool, this means I still do not have a need for AT&T text messages.
Can someone explain this text app to me please?
also r push notifications free for all apps? dont count as texts?
Now they just need to make the application not fugly.
Is the app any good? I might consider it instead of a text plan. Or at least cut my text plan down to 200 a month.
I am so EXCITED!!!
Since nobody will take a minute to answer I figure I'll try.
I believe it's a $5.99 (one time price) app but it eliminates the need to pay AT&T's ridiculous text message fees. Previously, I believe you could only see new messages if you opened the application. Now, with push, you will see a number in a red bubble like you do on messages and mail, to let you know you have new messages.
Also, I believe you have to text a person first, they can't text you first. I think I read that they were going to be fixing that though. Hope that helps.
can someone test out textfree's push and report back? I'd really appreciate it.
if you pm me your phone number we can try it... i'm in canada and it only lets me text american numbers :S
I just pmed you!
I don't think it used to have this, but I like that they give you a unique texting address. That makes me very happy.
about the unique address...can my friends now add my address to their phones and text me with that address?
I didn't know that you can use text to email.
here is what the notification looks like:
I freakin' love your background btw. Did you draw it?
The push looks REALLY nice! Tomorrow cannot come any sooner.

Haha actually my girlfriend did.. cute I know lol. Yeah the push is great and it has a new sound I haven't heard on my mac or iphone before. Also when you unlock the phone it goes straight to the textfree app and into the conversation. So far so good!
finally but what if we want MMS? Then do we have to subscribe to AT&Ts text plan then Unless... somebody else create an app that offers free MMS also like this free text?
Yeah I did it on my phone. I saved the address on my phone and texted my iPod Touch. It seems to work great. I don't have 3.0 yet so I don't have push yet. But it has the unique address and landscape keyboard. Works great.
There is a picfree app for the iPhone. Hopefully it gets updated for 3.0 also.
is there anyway to change the notification sound or is it gonna be always the same?
Nope I dont think so. I'm VERY dissapointed that if you have sound enabled, but have your iPhone silenced, it doesnt vibrate! I wish it vibrated if you had sound ON and your phone silenced.
EDIT: Disregard that...I had vibrate OFF in my iPhone settings for silent mode.
I talked to a textfree rep and she told me they will have that in a future version, hopefully the next. the sound is quite annoying.
Oh that sucks. I have my phone silenced most of the time. Maybe they'll fix that in the next update? (I say hopefully)
Edit: Sorry, that was meant as a response to Eminemdrdre00's post.
