downside to it, it's not notifying me when I get a text or a call. Can
(4★) Good app, but don't upgrade
Text plus works well. However, Nextplus is unstable and flaky. Why would you replace a functional app with a POS?

I honestly miss how you could meet new people with the same interest as you. There used to be groups that you could join and leave
voluntarily but it would be a great experience due to the new people

Not a bad app, however, I do not like that while I'm typing or reading something a huge ad comes up. This should be just a banner
at the bottom. It's very annoying.

For those of you that can't get into TextPlus, download NextPlus.it's from the same company. That seemed to clear up the TextPlus
issue. Keep both
