WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING“It’s like having a real phone number from the carrier. Except FREE.” –Nick “I started using this app back in 2007 on my iPod touch 3rd generation... Works every time, voice calls are clear, and no one knows it’s an app and not an actual phone. Highly recommended.” –Scott “I have used this app as my main phone number for years. It is just as reliable as an actual phone number.” –Kay “I’ve tried several, but hands down, Pinger is by far the best. Why? Simple: It works. Period.” –Tuc “I would rate this like 100,000,000 stars but can’t :/ only 5.” –Molly “Great to have a backup number especially when you travel abroad.” –Milo TERMS Subscriptions automatically billed monthly or annually to your iTunes Account and auto-renew, unless you turn off auto-renew at least 24-hours before the end of the current period.

    All in all this app is alright if you need an alternative way to text and make calls but the sound quality can be an issue. Recently I’ve had issues with the other person on the line complaining they can hear echoes. Also before these past few recent updates Pinger users could send photos and videos to other phones without someone having to click a link to actually see it. I noticed they went back to this method so I will find a different app to use.
  • Love this!

  • What happened

    By Mr88loveit
    I've had this app for a few years now and it used to work great. But since the update where the app icon changed to the now "pinger" logo it has gone downhill. Quit often when I try to open the app it crashes and I have to retry to open it several times. When it is open there is such a lag time from when I type to when it comes up on screen that I can quite often finish my typing before the first word appears on screen. Furthermore using the calling feature won't work with the earpiece speaker on my phone so every call has to be on speakerphone only. This is my second phone I have used this app on and the speakerphone only on calls is the same so it is not likely the phone but the app. The lag problem is everywhere in this app not just in recognizing typing but combined with answering a call and waiting for the in call screen to come up to switch to speakerphone people have to wait for me to here them which is an annoyance with friends and family but down right obnoxious when the doctors office is calling me back and hang up before the app can "catch up" to turn on speakerphone. I do not have regular service and this is my only number. If it were not for the fact everyone has this number I would delete it just out of pure frustration with it. I may still delete it and just go on in life without a "phone"
