Pinger Messenger is a global free calling and texting multi-platform app
Instant messaging apps with push notifications were a revolution that changed forever the way we communicate through mobile devices. The main catch of those services is though, that both sender and receiver need to install the same app, sign up the same service and of course, having a smartphone. Pinger is going a step further: a free calling and texting service that ensures free communication even with those users that haven't installed the app or even without a smartphone.That's why, according to ComScore, Pinger is one of the Top 5 downloaded and used apps.
It works this way. Both text and calls between Pinger users are completely free. Message feature work pretty much like other instant messaging apps: push notifications, chat window, groups and media sharing. It uses VoIP technology to place calls. It works perfectly over WiFi and pretty good over data (depending on the signal quality).
Unlike other messaging apps, when those friends you want to call or text aren't Pinger users you can still contact with them through Pinger. SMS to any number are always free. Calls to non-Pinger users require a positive balance of in-app points (Pinger Points). After signing up, users get a free amount of Pinger Points as well as a fully-functional local second phone number. Pinger points allow them to call and text non-Pinger users for a limited time. However, Pinger users can earn those points too: they'll refill their saldo when receiving calls from both mobile and landlines numbers. This system turns communication into a game and gives the chances to users to keep calling and texting for free. Anywa, ff they run out of points, they can purchase packs directly from the app.
It goes without saying that the local second phone number that Pinger provides their users with enables devices with no SIM-card (iPod and iPad) to use calling and messaging features.
Pinger's set in a neat minimalist interface that makes navigation really intuitive. It's too sober though: I'm missing themes, background, emojis and some customization. By the way, main catch is that Pinger is just available in US, Canada and Spain from now. However, users from other countries can already join "Pinger without VoIP to non-Pinger users feature" by downloading TextFree app (iOS, Android and desktop versions).

All this app has done on my cell is cause problems and Pinger never fixes them. Pinger says solved but its still not fixed. When i make a call through an excellent connection the calls always hang ...Plus my phone goes haywire since having this app.
This app tells me that I have problems with my network. Funny because this is the only app I have that problem with.
